Engine Performance problem
1999 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 130000 miles
The first time it happened was a year ago, and it chewed up a spark plug pretty bad. My mechanic switched the fuel injectors around and replaced the plugs and it ran fine for almost a year. Recently it started acting up again - I replaced the gas filter yesterday which was very gunked up. Now it idles better and has a lot more power, but a cylinder cut out 3 times on the way to work this morning - my thoughts are there still could be stuff in the gas line from removing the old filter, bad injector, or the coil. The plug wires are new as are the plugs. This time none of the plugs were damaged and looked fine Any other ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
have the same problem?
