99 ford escort 2.0 sohc I was driving it to college everything was fine until
I came to one of my many stops and my car felt like it was missing really bad out of the blue. When I would go to take off it would shake up to about 30 then it would rev kind of high then shift do the same thing all the way up to 60. When I come to a stop I would have to keep feathering the throttle or it would slowly stall. Things I have replaced the head burnt a valve, fuel filter, fuel pump, plug wires, timing belt(just the belt) and serpentine belt. I think maybe the timing has jumped
A compression test will tell you if it is just a case of jumped timing or something more like another burnt or bent valve. You didn't mention spark plugs, if your compression is good that might be your problem.
1 and 2 were a little white and 3 and 4 were black and I was getting a miss fire on 2&3
Spark plugs that is^
Ok so lean on 1 and 2 rich on 3 and 4, possible intake manifold leak. Still run the compression test.
