Assuming you mean that you have to press the brake hard to get the vehicle to shift. Most newer vehicles have a safety switch that prevents the vehicle from getting "bumped" out of park. You have to press on the brake to get these vehicles to shift. A switch is connected to the brake pedal, and the switch sends current to a little relay allowing you to shift the gear. If the switch is adjusted wrong or if the master cylinder is adjusted wrong, you will have to work hard to get the pedal down far enough to activate the switch. It's usually a minor adjustment and shouldn't cost much. Many shops will do it for free, just to get you thinking highly of them.
The engine may vibrate causing the front bumper pab=nel to rattle.
I have a 95 escort , 1.9 liter engine . The car runs fine, goes in reverse fine and into first fine, BUT will not shift into second. I changed the fluid and filter. There were no shavings on the magnets or in the bottom of the pan. The fluid was clean and did not smell burnt.
There is no switch which will keep it from shifting. Instead, the clutch is not releasing the power of the engine from the transmission. Bleed the clutch.

There are a few reasons why a Ford Escort LX will not go into reverse. One of the reasons could be low transmission fluid. Another reason could be a bad transmission.
yes it is possible
Yes, the tps signal is sent to your ecu. the ecu decides when to activate your transmission shift solenoids. if the tps is sending the wrong signal, then the ecu is giving the signal at the wrong time causing a hard shift.
Loosen the clamp bolts on the cable. If it is shifting down to a lower gear when the throttle is at max it is all right. If it is shifting down too early, lengthen the cable adjustment. If it is shifting down too late or not at all shorten the cable adjustment.
on gear box to side near filler plug or on top of gear box
This is because of rabbits communicating.
Our 1993 Ford would not randomly (or so we thought) shift into overdrive. We eventually figured out this happened when the headlights / parking lights were on. We then traced it to a bad ground in the parking lights circuit. We fixed the ground and the shifting issue was fixed. No joke.
its a shift light for a manual trans. means opimum rpm for shifting to higher gear
Could it be the clutch? Or cable?
I think you mean the shifting pattern? 1st gear- far left and up 2nd gear- far left and down 3rd gear- middle and up 4th gear- middle and down 5th gear- far right and up reverse gear- far right and down.
Try changing your PCV valve it messes with the idle control. and shifting prob is likely in tranny and may not be related at all. try PCV valve and have your tranny serviced.
I have a 1992 Escort, and it starts doing that right around the time it needs its 30,000 mile check-up.
it may be the slave cylinder or clutch master cylinder
Low refrigerant causing compressor not to start?
You will need to remove the inside door panel of your 1999 Ford Escort. Loosen the retaining clips on the window. Remove the window from the window track. Reverse the process to install the new window.
If this is the European Escort This engine is classed as an interference engine. In the event of belt failiure the valves meet the pistons causing the valves to bend and possibly other engine damage.
Bring to a transmission shop
remove two screws, remove tail light, remove bulb. reinstallation is the reverse of removal.
The rear brake pads on your 1993 Ford Escort can be changed by removing the brake pad Springs and break caliper. The brake pads will come off. Reverse the process to install the new brake pads.
NO. An 86 Escort is a 1st generation Escort and a 93 Escort is a 2nd generation.
Fully inspect your tires. A piece of one (or more of) your tires may be tearing off.
