1998 ford escort and there's coolant that is found under the front of the car after it has not been running for a while what could this be from?
Climb under the vehicle and try to find out where it's leaking from. Look closely at the water pump and try to see if there is a trace of antifreeze from the water pump pulley. If that's it, replace the water pump. If that's not it, you may find that it's as simple as a leaky radiator or radiator hose.

What would cause a 1996 Ford Escort LX manual to not start while in gear but not go into gear after the car has been started?
The first half i can answer, the car wont start due to a thing called a neutral safety switch, car will not start unless it is in neutral or park, this is done as a safety fea…ture so the car wont leap ahead or reverse when started The switch you are looking for is down behind the clutch petal and this electrical part costs about 50 Dollars you may have to remove the drivers seat to repair this conponet

The answer below has been given by a whiney scared idiot who would like to scare someone from ever working on their car. Working on cars is not rocket science. And front brake…s are easy, and it is simple to DO IT RIGHT. First of all, on a 1998 Ford Escort, the front brakes are disk brakes. Just go to any car parts store like Pep Boys or Auto Zone and purchase a repair manual. The employees there will help you find the right one for your car. Follow all the safety precautions, by all the right tools (fairly inexpensive, and not that many) and check out the pictures that accompany the instructions. You will save yourself up to a thousand dollars over the life of your car. Good luck! .....and don't listen to the negative fuddy duddies that give bad advice. They should be banned from this site. I have NEVER read a manual or asked anyone how to replace the brakes on any vehcile in the over 20 years of working on vehicles. If you have to get your brakes worked on, and you have no knowledge of vehicle brakes, have someone you know, who knows HOW TO DO IT RIGHT, show you. or Take it to a shop. The most prominent weapon in use in America today is the Automobile. Playing with it, is like playing with a loaded 357 magnum with the hammer cocked.

1998 Ford Taurus you have a power steering leak and it it looks like it is under the car about where the front seats areWhat should you look for in that area?
Passenger side or drivers side? Most likely it is in the high pressure hose from the pump to the steering sector spraying on the firewall and dripping down. Park it whe…re you will work on it. Fill it up, crank it up, get someone to steer back and forth slowly while you look for the leak with a good flashlight and maybe even a mirror inspection tool. Look fer it!
