I'm trying to troubleshoot my parents 97 ford escort, it's a 2. At first every now and then it would bog when you started it up but would be fine while driving. Sometimes it would start up and idle fine. Seemed to be an intermitent problem while idle. Then about 2 weeks ago it had a loss of power when accelerating and as of 3 days ago it started bogging down while driving it till finaly 2 days ago it won't even start but it will crank. If you give it gas while cranking it sputters a bit but won't start.
