Having problems with your 1999 Ford Escort ?
99 ford escort se gets no power and stutters.
\015 When i start my car it will start fine. but when i press the gas to go must of the time it stutters and doesnt want to go. I can push the gas pedal down all the way and go nowhere sometimes. Also if i am driving on the interstate when i get up to about 50 to 55 mph the car will **** pretty hard sometimes. I have replaced the fuel filter and that did not help. Any information on what it could be would be helpful.\015\012\015
When was the last time the timing belt was replaced on it? The cam timing may be retarded back from belt stretch creating this problem. Another thing to check out is if your catalytic converter may be partially plugged up.
Try looking into a vacuum leak. I had a 99 Escort ZX2 that had a bad PCV valve hose and it was doing the same thing. Replaced hose for $20 and ran perfect.
