  • Ford Model: escort 5dr 1.6i lx 1996

Posted 24 March 2009 - 01:30 PM

Hello all im new to this forum, i own a 1996 1.6i petrol escort lx and and it burns alot of fuel more than it should anyway, also when i run the engine on cold the engine cuts out a couple of times but when it warms up it runs fine but hesitates on ecceleration a little. Could this be worn fuel injectors or some kind of sensor. Can anyone please help.

Have something to contribute?

i would have your sensors checked out mate. usually costs around 20 (for me in the past anyhow!) because it sounds like your oxygen sensor (which is usually screwed into the downpipe on the exhaust) i have had a similar problem a year or so ago.

Hi thanks for your reply, regarding the sensor do you mean that long thin thing with a wire coming off it just below the manifold, i would put a Q mark at the end but cant work this Russian keyboard lol. Ive just bought the car last week and in general it runs fine, so you had the same symtoms with your car and if it is this sensor how much roughly would this part cost and do Ford only make these parts.
