  • 1995 FORD ESCORT
I have a 1995 ford escort with 161000 miles on it, it has a 5 speed and a 1.9 l engine. Last fall it wouldnt start. I thought it might be the timing belt (it's been 60,000 mile since it was replaced) My friend came over a couple of weeks ago too verify what was wrong with it, he tried to start it and it just turned over and wouldn't fire. This morning I went out and was going to put a new belt on, and I tried too start it and it fired up on the first crank. I went too drive it and it died . Now I have no spark. I have replaced the EDIS module and nothing happened, still no spark. Any ideas?
Do you

I Have the same problem with a 1994 ford ranger I have changed every part that has any thing to do with spark or spark control $700 dollars latter and still no fire on spark plugs I even changed crank shaft position censer and nothing but when it first happened it sounded just like yours died one time started went 100 feet then it died again.

The rest of my story:

Well I picked a ford ranger ran for a month then started to skip a little so I went to the for dealership and had the timing belt replaced and a tune up done as well, then when I got the truck back it was still doing the same thing so I started to have the ignition system replaced one part at a time first the coil pack s then the ignition module then the truck just up and quit tested it all I got for a code was low fuel presser but nothing to do with ignition tested all parts one at a time replaced any that even seemed to be other than perfect including the crank shaft position censer and finally the central control box mounted on the fire wall the brain as I call it nothing worked all the test points on the ignition module and coil packs have power like it is suppose to but still no fire on any plugs when I turn over the truck any help on this. I have put a lot of time and cash trying to figure this out and I have the most expensive ford ranger taking up garage space that could be put to better use. Other than storage for a truck that will not start do to no fire on plugs.

I had the same problem in my 88 escort. My turn signals quit working, then after driving 100 feet my car completely died. Turns out it was the electrical part of my ignition. The part that moves when u turn the key had come loose and then completely fell out. Cheap fix once I found the problem.
