He is close. On the driver's side just under the valvecover and just above the exhaust manifold. There will be vacum hose connecting it to the intake.
My Ford Escort is blowing a significant amount of oil through the hose that goes from the valve cover to the air filter. When I put a new air filter in, after driving the car the air filter gets soaked with oil. When I drove a few miles with no air filter in, a huge puddle of oil accumulated into the air filter housing. Also, when I take off the valve cover cap the cap used to add oil while the engine is running, a lot of oil spits out of the hole, which didn't happen before.
Ford has used a variety of four cylinder engines over the years, ranging in displacement from 1. All of these engines are overhead cam engines, some with a single cam others with dual cams, and all have timing belts that need to be replaced at 60, miles up to or atmiles most and up. This is especially important on the interference engines to prevent expensive valve damage should the timing belt fail.
Q: I am the original owner of a Ford Escort Wagon 1. For about the last six months, the engine has been idling rough when in gear, and sometimes, when traveling at slow speeds 35 to 40 mphthe car has a jerky motion. This only happens about half the time. I replaced the plugs twice in the last 10, miles, changed the PCV valve and the gas filter.
