Having problems with your 1998 Ford Escort ?
We just got a 1998 ford escort, automatic with 106,000 mi on it. two weeks passed and the check engine light came on. It was the tps, it was changed n no change. The car turns on after third try, jumps at 20mph, and once in a while turns off at a light.when you put foot on accelerator, the motor seems like it stays accelerated. throttle cable seems too loose but dont know how to tighten it.took apart throttle body cleaned it out, no change, dont know what else to do. can you help!
Did you reset the computer because if you don't the computer does'nt reconize the new sensor and it will run as if you did'nt even replace it.You can reset it with a scan tool,or take the ground cable off battery for 30 seconds or pull the ECM fuse then put it back.
