Engine Performance problem
1998 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
My problem seems to be fuel or sensor related. I will be driving, and then it will start stalling out, like its not getting gas. I push the accellerator, and it doesnt rev up. When I turn off the ignition, it will start right back up and run normal. It was doing it occasionally, maybe once a day or couple of days. Now it is doing it non-stop, maybe every mile. I got the car scanned at AutoZone. The 3 codes it gave was P1131, P1132, and P0455.
I took it to a mechanic, along with the codes. The mechanic wont even look or listen to the codes. He said he will do his own work. No scanning. Said he will check to see if there was water in the tank. Then check fuel pressure, etc. Sounds expensive.
So what is your take on this?
have the same problem?
