1999 Escort problem
Hey guy's, my turn for some help. Wifes Escort broke down recently. I replaced fuel pump and filter, then the fuel pressure regulator. This did not fix it. After more trouble-shooting, Pulled spark plug wires one at a time and #2 did not make any difference. Replaced fuel rail with injectors (used),and that seemed to fix it. It is giving trouble again. Pull the wires and makes a difference in running on all cylinders. The car idles slightly rough, but on accelleration it bucks really bad. I disconnected the MAF and it did not make any difference in the way it ran.
So any advice? Does it sound like the MAF? What are the symptoms if it is the TPS or MAF malfunction?
Thanks in advance!
Forgot to add... it did this about a week ago for a few minutes, then cleared up. Tonight it messed up for about the last 10 miles of a 15 mile trip. Also, is there a way to test the Maf or TPS?
