Randomly changing parts is the hard and EXPENSIVE way to diagnose this problem.
This could be caused by the anti-theft system, it could be caused by shorted reference voltage circuits to your cam, crank, mass airflow, map or throttle position sensors. This could be caused by missing ignition voltage at the ignition coil. This could be caused by shorted control circuits between the powertrain control module and the ignition coil, etc., etc., etc.

The FIRST thing that should be done is to scan your powertrain control module (PCM) as well as your generic electronic module (GEM) and your instrument panel module (IPC) to see if there are any fault codes present. If there is a P1260 code for example, this would indicate that your antitheft system is the cause of the "no-spark" condition. In this case, you would diagnose your antitheft system, NOT your engine control system. Please note that MOST generic OBD code readers CANNOT do all of this.

Found these two fuses. Not only check the fuses, use a test light and check voltage on fuse circuit, one is hot all the time. The other goes hot with key on.
Ground wire is important, also, ground wire is usually black in color.

interesting challenge! if the axle nut is not rounded there are some powerful electric impact guns out there, the other side of the street, the transmission once unbolted and the axle pryed loose and there is enough room between sub frame and engine it will come out, automatic is easier but heavier... heat wrench would be nice (torch)

You can buy a recharge kit for like $30 with the gauge, follow directions. See if it helps most likely you have a leak that's a given but even a very very small leak take time to leak. So for $30 try it if it lasts fine sometimes its just an O- ring or the Schrader valve leaking (the valve you put the freon in thru) check for any oily areas yup that's the AC oil it will tell you sometimes you can't find with ***** eye use special glasses to see, you can find them at the parts store with dye in the 134a it stands out.
Hope I helped

Hi
Your alarm or engine immobiliser are usually wired into your ignition wire at the back of the dashboard you will probably need to find out where its been joined to your wiring loom a good starting point is to take your stereo headset out and have a look at the wiring behind it as usually alarm technicians go for the quickest route and you have an ignition cable that goes to your stereo
I hope this makes sense and helps you out. Nick

Hi
Check the gearbox mount.
If the mount in good condition then get a gearbox specialist to check the box.

ford escort/ focus engine 2.0 l spi sohc 1997-2004 has been identified as an intereference engine and that means very likely valve to piston damage
( auto data timing belt information )
note-- up to 2002 year Ford has not recommended a timing belt interval for changing
Ford has however recommended a replacement every 120.000 miles using the service history as a guide
however good professional trade practice recommends every 60.000 miles ( 100.00klms) and the replacement work should include replacement of the crank and cam shaft seals and idler pulleys involved ( the biggest destroyer of belts is oil)
recommended labor time is 2 hours
if the belt has broken then head removal and valve work will add up to 5 hours to that time

Yeah, Ford should be able to tell you or get it. Best to figure out why it broke.. When you tear it down.

2001 Ford Escort... | Answered on Oct 19, 2016


Well, you've replaced everything between except the wire. You need to verify if voltages are present either with a voltmeter or a test light. verify power on both sides of the fuse, then make sure the brake switch has and passes power. If the turn signals flash the brake light, then test the turn signal switch as well.
