Ford Escort SE/Sport 1998 146,000 miles
I was driving my escort and had to stop somewhere. I ran in, left it running, and came back out. I began moving and my gas gauge dropped from between 1/2-1/4 (closer to 1/2) to right on E. Then my Low fuel, brake, check engine, and battery lights all came on and I stalled.
We put 6 gallons of gas in it, that wasn't the problem. It's now comfortably sitting on 3/4 or so. However, it won't start. We had it towed home. My dad checked the spark plugs, they've got a connection. He changed the fuel filter and he can't see what else the problem would be. The lights on the inside are strong so he's ruling out battery or alternator and it acts like it wants to start but just keeps turning in the attempt.
have the same problem?
