Having problems with your 1989 Ford Escort ?
1989 ford escort turns over but wont start
\015 Battery was dead so i charged it halfway when i tried to start car i heard a pop saw a spark from battery then battery when completely dead. Fully charged battery put it back into car not it turns over strong but wont start\015
I d check for a bad fuse, ecm, or fuel pump. clean cables, make sure the wire to the air flow sensor or air cleaner box didn't get unplugged. do you hear the fuel pump run when you turn on the ignition?
If all you did was this...and and put a new battery in and still wont start...if you have went thru your plugs..wires..distributor..ignition coil...made sure your getting spark..if not..check your relays and fuses..preferebly one that deals with spark and timing for injectors..if everything is fine to that point...then try a crankshaft position sensor...it tells the pcm timing for fuel injectors and fire to the ignition coil...hopefully this helps.
