This is very common on the 1996 Ford Escort unfortunately. Basically the speedometer cable has to be re-greased or the speedometer has to be replaced with the older 80mph model. Both "fixes" require disassembly of the dash to get to the cable/speedometer. See the ford escort owners association for more details/instructions.

What kind of oil do you use in 1991 ford escort with manual transmission?

The manual transmission in an Escort is a Mazda built unit. Like most Mazda manual trannies, it uses Mercon or Dexron fluid, which is a very common, generic automatic transmission fluid. It's often sold as "multi purpose" atf.On most models, the fluid is added through the speedometer cable hole; the speedometer cable and gear have to be removed to fill it. You remove a single small bolt, and then you should be able to pull the cable and gear out of the top of the transmission. Often it is stuck.The speedometer gear can be used as a dipstick for the fluid level - it should touch but not completely cover the gear.

Sorry to burst your bubble but their is no speedometer cable on a escort, it utilizes a input and output speed sensor on the transmission, and the Drivers information center uses a tiny motor that receives a signal from the Ecm, it uses the output speed sensor from the transmission to give you a vehicle speed. They just dont build them like they used to.
