Engine Performance problem
1995 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 298000 miles
I have a 95 ford escort 1.9L. My problem started about a year ago when the car had problems getting up to speed. Now it's so bad that I can't even take off up hill. I have to ride the clutch and work the gas pedal just right to even get rolling. The clutch has been replaced along with the timing belt, tps, vr sensor, cam shaft sensor, plugs and wires, fuel pump and filter. I had a couple of chain saws that acted the same way due to a clogged screen in the exhaust. They idled fine but when power was applied the engine would lug down. That is same thing the escort is doing. Could it be a clogged catalytic converter? According to the cars computer nothing is wrong. I was thinking, EGR or fuel injectors flooding the engine. The head on the engine was put on a couple of years ago after a valve seat came lose. Which seems to be a common problem on 90-99s. Been racking my brain all winter about it so I thought I'd try to rack someone elses. Thanks
have the same problem?
