Having problems with your 1992 Ford Escort 4 Door ?
2002 Ford Escort intermittently will not start. Drove to a store, shut it off, got back in and it wouldn't turn over. Got a jump and it still wouldn't start. Put water in the battery, spilled a bit of water on the terminals. Then it started. Drove again, turned it off, again it wouldn't start. Got a jump, wouldn't turn over. Cleaned the battery terminals, it started. Drove home, shut it off, it wouldn't start. Got a jump, it started right away, let it run for 45 mins. Turned it off, once again w
Sounds like your battery terminals or cables are bad. is there any corrosion on the terminals? if so clean them with a wire brush. check to make sure that both ends of both wires are tight and not rusted or corroded.
The CCA;s(cold cranking amps) are too low on your battery. When this happens your car usually only starts when its cold. Recommend testing your battery and probably replacing it. Good luck, keep me posted.
