I have this '87 Ford Escort Wagon. Nearly every day to work and every
day coming home it will momentarily stall out after I have traveled
around five miles. (The symptoms- as it is stalling for about 2-3
secs., I will be pressing on the gas pedal but it will just act as if
someone turned off the key,slows down and then after about 2-3 secs.
it will 'take' and be on it's merry way). Then the rest of the trip to
work and home will be fine. I have had it in to the Ford dealer twice
but they could not find anything; and as a matter of fact they said it
runs like a top. (I am not sure how well they tested it). In any case
does this appear to be an automatic choke problem? (I am not the
brightest star when it comes to mechanics so go easy). It recently had
a fuel filter replaced but this problem has been going on for about a
thanks in adv.
