Don't leave your clutch depressed when sitting at stoplights. You'd rather deal with the noise and see the amount of stress this puts on your clutch/pressure plate. Leave the clutch engaged in nuetral when you're at a stop.[/quote]FordBoy4ever said:mine just started doing that to and i noticed that when i depress the clutch it goes away
Escorts use electric fans, not belt driven fans. I also have to say replace the belts, they're 10 bucks. Mine were squeaking like crazy, had them changed and no more squeaking...although my car did bounce and jerk uncontrollably..turned out my intake tube was torn. 8O95EsortSittinLo said:fan belt?!? :?
Id be freaking greatful because i would get insurance money up the wazoo when he hit me and i would get some of the dents removed from my car. and given thats would be a good defensive driving stratagie (sp?) but its at your expense when you have to pay for the worn out parts to be replaced. i keep it in neutral and watch the lights going the other way and when they turn yellow i pop it into gear most of the time....Electronikal said:and anyways....you should leave your clutch engaged and your gear in 1st whenever you are waiting on a redlight...you'll be greatfull one of these days when a fat ass truck coming from behind ya and unable to brake fast enough cauz there is ice all over the place ...you will have to react quickly and if you have this discusting habit of picking your nose while waiting on a redlight..well....you'll be even more greatfull!!!
