Engine Mechanical problem
1990 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 102000 miles
I can start the car, but it won't stay running. I have to put the motor at about 3500 RPM's. It will sit there fine for a minuet and without fluctuation the throttle the RPM's drop and it stalls. It will not idle. The dealership I took it to said it was the fuel injector that would cost about 480.00 plus labor. They also said the part was rare and not made anymore that is why it cost so much. I have since then looked up fuel injectors for the same vehicle for about 68.00, are they jipping me or could it be a different problem? I believe the car only has one injector above the carb. It is a 1.9 ltr.
