Dying engine?

My early 90 mod escort 1,4i Manual seems to have some engine problems, when the engine is cold, I start it up and it`ll run fine, but as i start driving and for some reason needs to stop, it sometimes dies on me as I release he gas, and push the clutch.,? and other times when the engine is hot it has a tendensy of leveling the idle at about 2000rpm..?

Is this a common problem with this car/engine?
anybody got an Idea what cauces it, and how i can fix it?
Please help.


thanks!

Hi Escort 1,4

As you have put 1,4i then I am assuming it is fuel injected and petrol. If so it could be a sensor causing trouble maybe throttle position sensor. I'll see if I can find out more .

Could do with a few more people on here with some ideas on some of these prob's.

Couple of things that can cause stalling on the 1.4 PTE, firstly the inlet manifold gaskets tend to go in the area of No1 cylinder, secondly the oil seperator valve goes wonky, both cause excess air to enter the system and throw the fuelling out. When the engine's hunting, if you give the valve a belt (it's located at the rear of the engine top left, round black thing) and the idle then settles, it's more than likely the valve's to blame.

Further to my reply above, I've since found out that it's actually the earlier CFi engine that you have, and not the PTE (EFI) that I was referring to. Problems with idle on the CFi are either the Idle Tracking Switch in the stepper motor, the TPS, or the VSS.
