1991 Ford Escort Cuts out on corners

5 posts in this topic

Ok Ford guys here ya go. My wagon will cut out and die when under 1/2 tank of fuel on I believe left hand turns, but not right hand turns. Obviously something with fuel pickup, any ideas? 1.9 L Manual

Man, this is an easy one, but I can not put my finger on what it is. It was a very common concern.

I would say fuel pump at this point, but could be wrong.

jasper, I will look this up tomorrow, but I remember something about a bad fuel pump ground. Or like shack said a bad fuel pump. Most likely the pick up hose in the tank is sucking air.

I don't rember specifically what years had this problem but it might be worth pulling the back seat (5 second job) to see what kind of shape the wiring harness to the pump is in. Back in the day I gutted a few escort interiors to replace them. They would rub through under the seat and burn up. This problem would cause all kinds of symptoms.

I kind of like the idea of pulling the pump ( if I remember right there is an access under the seat) to see if there is a visible defect in one of the components.

Airjer may have you on track, doing a few quick checks, it looks like this is one of those that had the recall done under the rear seat for the fuel pump, it adds a bulk of wires in a tight spot, and when people sit in the back seat the wires get pinched and rub.

Although if that isnt it, I would pull the fuel pump out and take a good look at the rubber hoses on it. Electrical wiring shouldnt change with less then a half tank, it should act up even with a full tank. I am still thinking it is going to be something inside the tank on the pump, or the pump itself! You can access it from under the rear seat!

    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
