Best Answer

Dipstick WILL be on the right hand side of the engine back near the firewall. You may have to push some wires or hoses out of the way but it IS there, it will have a yellow or red top. Just look until you find it or you will burn the tranny.

Where does the gear oil go into for a 1995 ford escort?

Both the automatic and stick shift take Mercon ATF. The automatic is filled by putting a funnel on the dipstick stem. The stick shift you have to remove the VSS and speedometer drive gear on the top of the tranny. This gear has been known to break and fall down into the case jamming the shift rods. No more 5 speed. If this happens the transmission has to come out to remove it. It will be expensive. So, if someone else is doing the work and that will save you $1400.
