Aloha dudes and duddettes,

My 92' Escort "fuel cutout" light is on and is making loud noise under the hood by the manifold area. I drove my car for about 3 minutes and the noise went away with the light. Every now and then the noise and light would go on and its so irritating..... what is the problem?

Thank for all your help....

Mahalo,
Scotty

what kind of noise is it..Is it a ticking..that would be detonation.

Did you turn the fuel cutout back on. Theres a switch in the trunk.

Aloha JohnScort,

Oh and just to mention when the noise and light didnt' go away and i'd just turn the engine off (turning the ignition off and taking the key out!!!) the escort would still kinda run... sounds like the gas was still trickling in or something....

The noise is like a harsh "soda cans thrashing like".... where is the switch in the trunk? i'l like to know... and is the noise and lights go away when i'm driving do i still have to turn the fuel cut back on?

Mahalo,
Scotty

Experiencing same problem: costly

1st post on the best forum in the world: Priceless


The soda cans thrashing noise coming from up front...been there done that. The part that really made me remember my broken starter was the "stops after 3 minutes." I have done all my work on my Escort ever since I bought it. But this was the second time I took it to the shop. The thrashing is the starter...atleast I believe it is. A new starter is about $70.00. It's not that bad, but it's not that easy to install...it's not a simple unbolt, remove, and bolt on.

The starter isn't really *THAT* bad. It's just up and above the transmission (and behind it a bit, if memory serves correctly)

It was one of the first things I removed when I had to do my clutch.

Quick Edit...

BTW, If the starter is still running, check the ignition switch and solenoid first. Those will be your best bet at an easier/cheaper repair.
