Access the plug from behind the passenger side front wheel. Reach up toward the front of the vehicle and touch the bottom edge of the engine oil pan. Just run your hand back and forth on the rear-edge of the engine oil pan. You'll feel the 5/8" bolt.

That's the great thing about the Escort... you can change the oil without having to get under it. It only has to be jacked-up just enough to fit an oil drain pan underneath it. The oil filter can be easily reached from the top.

The drain pan is aluminimum and aluminimum is soft. BE SURE not to overtighten that drain plug!
