Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 157000 miles
I was driving to the store and right as I slowed down, turned the wheel and pulled into a parking place. My car shut off. Now the way it shut off felt as if it had run out of gas. It sputtered tried to keep running, but ended up shutting off. So I popped the hood and nothing looked wrong, or out of the ordinary. After poking around for about a half hour I got no where. The car would try to turn on. It makes the sound that normally lasts a second followed by the engine comming to life. Only the engine never comes to live and the sound it makes just keeps going until I let go of the key. ( I apologize I do not know how else to describe it) I got it towed back to my house and I sprayed some startup fluid directly into the intake to see if I had a fuel pump problem. The car still did not start. So I replaced the ignition coils and the spark plugs. The car still dose not start. If you have any idea please help.
have the same problem?
