1997 Ford Escort died on Freeway
117,000 Miles, 4-cylinder, Automatic, 2-Wheel drive, Subtle (clicking/Rattling sounds) : like something you would hear out of an air-conditioner.
I was driving in the fast lane on the freeway when I heard this subtle clicking/rattling sound. At first I thought nothing of it then, about 60 seconds later all my service lights came on simultaenously and my gas pedal no longer worked.
I pulled off to the shoulder, put it in park, put my hazards on, and took out the key. Car wouldn't start up, or sound like it was trying to start. It was completely dead.
Triple A, takes it to the Firestone shop off the next exit. At the end of the day they call and say they can't figure out what was wrong with it. Now I guess I am left to taking it to a ford dealership and seeing if they can figure it out.
