Re: 1998 escort sputters with snap acceleration
Well, I found the problem after changing the plugs. It was the plug wires, specifically #4. When I changed the plugs, I visually inspected the wires, everything looked ok, no cracks, etc. I put everything together, stsrted it no problems. Took it out to the street, at the traffic lights, sputtering, way worse than before. Popped the hood, and at the plug boot arcing to the head. Replaced wires , runs like new, all faults have disappeared.
