Engine Performance problem
1998 Ford Escort 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles
I am losing power during a climb up hill, it runs smooth and does not miss fire. It will bog down during the climb and I have to pull over to the shoulder to continue traveling since my speed has dropped so much I cannot stay with traffic but the engine does not die. There is a slight hesitation upon acceleration. The spark plugs and pcv valve have been replaced, and I cleaned the air flow sensor and installed a new air cleaner. It appears to have the problem only during a low vacuum condition. What components could cause this problem
have the same problem?
