I have a 2000 Ford Escort, 2 door, 2 wheel drive, manual transmission, 100,000 miles, 4 cylinder. Last night I was stopped at a red light and was on an incline, the light went green and I proceeded to try and move but the car would not go. I finally got it to drive but every time I go uphill the speed decreases about 15 mph. I was on the highway and couldnt go more than 65 on flat roads and the car just died. I tried starting but it was not possible. It sounds like its trying to start but it just doesnt. Any one have any suggestions as what it might be?
have the same problem?
