All I find on this item is info about the law suit, what I would like to
know, would this item going bad result in an engine that dies and won't
restart? If there are no other ignition problems, would a defective TFI
module result in no spark. I think it's the item on the distributor, as
the only other item is a capacitor.
I think you have a 1.8. The 1.9 should be distributor-less ( starting date for
that is 1991 ). Also the 1.8 does not use a TFI ignition system, it's ignition
is called Electronic Spark Advance a very different system.
cant remember when, but i got a 93 taurus.. bought it new in 93.. i
received a lawsuit paper on a class action suit that covered just about
every ford vehicle that has a TFI on it.. it was a concent decre that
ford agreed to pay for the repairs.. being as mine never went bad i
think there was an extended warranty fot those that never needed the
repair.... call up your local for dealer and ask them to run the vin
number of your veh. i their computer to see if they have an extended
warranty on it.... if so that will save you pleanty...
and yes it gets hot and the engine looses ignition and it will not
I have a 1995 Escort with the 1.9L engine, and I have never heard of
this problem or experienced it myself. How about you check out the
fourms at http://www.feoa.net (Escort enthusiast site) and see if
anyone there has any knowledge of it.
