I can only suggest that you find a mechanic that knows what he/she is doing.
If the symptoms are repeatable, the fix should be relatively easy. The
information you have supplied is too sketchy to even consider a diagnostic
Hve the system scanned for memory and on demand codes... post the code
numbers and someone can help..... even "gerald" the odd time.
That may be... but our town is full of paupers that can ill afford upscale
vehicles like Escorts.... We have to settle for working on lesser vehicles
like Excursions and SDs and lowly Explorers with little more than moonrooves
and DVD players for options.
These cars had a concern with normal engine vibration feeding up through the
steering column causing the steering wheel to shake (violently) when idling in
Is that what yours is doing? It felt like the whole car was vibrating. The fix
widely but it usually consisted of replacing the engine and transmission mounts
updated parts and installing a weight to the exhaust system to cure it.
Although your car isn't under warranty, ask your Ford Dealer to look for a
Service Bulletin addressing this issue. Unfortunately, at 6 years old, if this
problem, the cost of the fix is on you. Most symptoms showed up early in the
life, but I can see how it might be a concern when the cars aged.This was an
problem with ZX2s with the DOHC (2.5L?) engine when they were new.
