Asked by Sep 26, 2015 at 02:03 AM about the 2002 Ford Escort 2 Dr ZX2 Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Car is Ford Escort ZX2 2002 model. In short my car is not starting and
moving an inch, well it cranks the engine when I turned the keys but dies
immediately. If I pump the gas paddle immediately after the engine got
cranked the engine stays alive as long as I give acceleration and didn't
even stay for a sec time to shift the gear and move the car and also once I
release the gas paddle engine dies immediately.

Sounds like your fuel pump is not working correctly. You will need to check your pressure, make sure you change your fuel filter before you check the fuel pressure....

Joemom Thanks for your reply. Well I got panic yesterday and showed a mechanic and he said it is the issue with the gas pedal strings and he took off them as he found there is a slack in the strings. Do you think he is correct.
