1998 Ford Escort, 150,000kms. Daughters car and she is 2 hours away. Problem with running. Car starts great and runs great. Sometimes, but not always when she is in any manual gear and RPM is between 1500 and 2000, the car will hesitate for a split second then take off again. If at idle in neutral and I bring revs to 1500+, it will do it and watching the tack, revs drop and bounce right back. No other electrical gauge affected. If she keep the revs high when shifting, it does not do it. If she creeps along it sometimes will do it repeatably in that RPM range. Once over 2000 RPM, no issue. When she is on the highway it runs great. Have changed the coil pack, TPS, plugs [new Champion double Platinum as per book] new plug wires, new gas filter. Have checked and cleaned all electrical connectors accessible. Cleaned MAF sensor. Have had it on a scanner at a garage, no code comes up. Really stumped, any help appreciated!
have the same problem?
