Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 128000 miles
Yesterday I had driven this car about 280 miles, all interstate, when it shut off without warning. When it shut off I had taken an exit ramp which exits at an incline (not too steep). So, as mentioned, the car shut off without any warning. It never sputtered, made any type of noise, or anything. Now it cranks but will not fire. I had the car towed home and tried to start it again today but it still will not fire.
I bought this car on Sunday so I wasn't sure if maybe the fuel gauge wasn't working and I had run out of gas, but adding more gas didnt' fix the problem either.
Any thoughts? Thanks.
have the same problem?
