got a miss in my 96 1.9. at first it was just a hesitation at idle in drive but now it´s getting muchworse. it´s like turning the ig nition on and off at idle (in drive ) and moer like a regular miss during acceleration. changed the plugs and wires. any suggestions?

I´m not sure but was 96 affected in the ignition module recall?It sounds like a possibility.There´s also a large number of escorts that the contacts in the lock cylinder fail.theres also a big relay(maybe a fuse) that´s in the fuse box under the hood I think it´s labeled ecu it´s been a while since I was under the hood on a 2nd gen.But I do remember it´s labeled with the same amperage as the abs.I remember cause while I was on a tow one day one of my co workers used mine to try it in a customers car, it worked so he sold it and gave me the money thinking I could have the parts store run one to me, but I got back too late, and had to use the one from my abs to get the car home.I´m not sure I have always hated tracking electronic bugs.There´s one more thing that comes to mind and that is timing did it slip a tooth? it should be due for a new belt judging by the year Ford recommends replacement at 70,000 miles.Maybe someone else knows of something I haven´t mentioned or has had the same problem.Good luck.
