SOURCE: 1998 ford escort wagon brake lights out. bulbs and fuses changed.

have you tested the brake light switch? it is located at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to, it is very common for the wires to that switch to break inside the plastic insulation, the switch testing goes like this, there should be 12 volts present at both sides of the switch with the brake pedal depressed and one side without the pedal depressed.

SOURCE: Replacing transmission fluid in standard

The manual transmission in the Ford Escort uses transmission fluid, it is checked and filled in the same hole. That hole is where the speedometer cable is hooked up to the transmission. Remove the speedometer cable, set aside, then remove the locking bolt that holds the speedometer drive unit in place. Pull up on the drive unit and it will come out, look on the side of the drive unit and you will see the level indicator line for full and add. Fill as needed and reinstall the drive unit and cable. Hope this helps, let me know.

SOURCE: Brake light switch for 1998 ford escort station

Common problem with these cars are that the rubber piece that "gaps" your brakepedal from the micro-switch keeps breaking (they usually have a replacement rubber piece connected on the brake pedal beside it). If your brake lights won't go off because of this, either change-out this rubber gap piece - or, you can just change the gap with a wrench, and not even use the rubber gap piece (this is what I ended up doing on a couple of my escorts).

Need electrical wiring diagramignition 1995 ford escort wagon


I wasn't sure what part of the ignition you wanted? Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. The diagram is for ignition switch. The top wires are voltage to ignition switch. The bottom wires are voltage from ignition switch.

1995 Ford Escort LX Wagon 1.9 Liter. 173K Loud Vibration


Is the engine running on all four cylinders, no missfire? If so, check the engine and transmission mounts, there are four, one at the top right hand side, one at the top of transmission on the left hand side, and one on front of transmission bell housing, and one in the rear transmission bell housing, any of them that are bad can cause this vibration. Hope this helps, let me know.

Can not find blower motor relay on 1997 escort lx


I have bypassed this same issue when we had our Escort wagon! I tried a new blower motor relay and no luck, from my research this is a common problem, i opted to go for the aftermarket fan relay from Advanced auto, it worked perfectly! anyhow the relay is behind the driver's side headlight underneath the black box Good luck!

98 escort key stuck in ignition


http://i48.tinypic.com/2qatvz8.jpg

a EAST fix, I removed the plastic around the steering wheel (3 bolts under the steering wheel) and I manually pulled the lever toward you to remove the key. THEN I used a zip tie to hold it back so my key can come out from now on... saved you $300 for a new tumbler

EASY fix and cost $.05cents.

This was done on my 2001 ford escort and it should work with other fords, like the focus model.

It sounds like your clutch is slipping. Does it do it more when the wagon is loaded or going uphill?
Most likely needs a new clutch.
