The orifice tube is inside the line going to the evaporator you have to disconnect the lines to get to it you should change the accumulator tank because that's a very likely leak spot a/c systems never need freon unless there's a leak in the system and that tank is almost always responsible buy a can with dye in it to get the system charged enough to get the compressor to cycle the leak will show up wherever it is then repair and have the system evacuated with a vacuum pump do not skip this step you will have a bad result of blowing seals in the compressor or the orings on the lines plus you just spent $$to fix it do it right one time ok good luck stephen

SOURCE: cant remove the headlight assembly from a 1998

You have to basically remove the bumper cover in order to do this.
You will need a 10mm socket with a couple extensions and a phillips screwdriver.
First remove the plastic shield inside the wheel well using the phillips screwdriver.
There are 3 10mm bolts that have to be removed the attach the bumper cover to the fender. The first one is just inside the newly uncovered hole. For the other 2 you will need the extensions. They are located all the way back in the hole beside the headlight assembly. If you look in with a flashlight You will see 3 bolts down in there. One of them will have a 1/2 inch spacer on it. Do not worry about this bolt, it holds the header panel on. The other 2 bolts are the ones you need to remove. Once this is done, if you need to remove the bolts under the hood that hold the bumper cover on the header panel. You should now have adequate movement to move the bumper cover out of the way of the 3 10mm bolts on the headlight assembly that were blocked.

Does this car have an interference motor?


ford escort/ focus engine 2.0 l spi sohc 1997-2004 has been identified as an intereference engine and that means very likely valve to piston damage
( auto data timing belt information )
note-- up to 2002 year Ford has not recommended a timing belt interval for changing
Ford has however recommended a replacement every 120.000 miles using the service history as a guide
however good professional trade practice recommends every 60.000 miles ( 100.00klms) and the replacement work should include replacement of the crank and cam shaft seals and idler pulleys involved ( the biggest destroyer of belts is oil)
recommended labor time is 2 hours
if the belt has broken then head removal and valve work will add up to 5 hours to that time

2002 ford escort zx2 replaced fuel filter, air filter, plugs, and MAS...why won't it stay running?


it could be down to your spark plug leads take the leads out one by one and get somebody to hold the lead to the engine [to earth it] NOT WITH YOUR HAND with something thats not conductive like something plastic then try starting the engine to see if a spark jumps from the lead and repeat this please dont do this with your hand its very dangerous enouf voltage to knock you out!

A/C will not blow cool air. 2001 Ford Escort ZX2


You can buy a recharge kit for like $30 with the gauge, follow directions. See if it helps most likely you have a leak that's a given but even a very very small leak take time to leak. So for $30 try it if it lasts fine sometimes its just an O- ring or the Schrader valve leaking (the valve you put the freon in thru) check for any oily areas yup that's the AC oil it will tell you sometimes you can't find with ***** eye use special glasses to see, you can find them at the parts store with dye in the 134a it stands out.
Hope I helped

Yes, All the years of the ZX2 utilize the same engine. 1998-2003 are all the same except for ECU programing and the MAF wiring. You should not have a problem.
