check the fuse, it should be linked to other devices in the vehicle if you've noticed other components (radio, interior lights, etc.) not working. if the gauge is pegged in the super high or low position and the fuse is good, pull apart dash and check voltage reading at gauge wiring (you need voltage values from ford to determine if the gauge is out or if it is indeed telling you the right reading). If the gauge wiring checks out, the sender unit on your fuel pump went out and it is integral with the fuel pump itself. Ala, time to replace the fuel pump. Good luck.

The 1997 Ford Explorer fuel gauge can be stuck on fault because the fuel float is malfunctioning in the fuel tank. The fuel gauge fuse might be blown.

1997 escort tranny's are a breed of their own you must replace it with a 1997 transmission.

If your temperature gauge on the dash reads higher or lower than it should, the thermostat could be bad. If the stat is stuck open the engine won't warm up and if the stat is stuck shut the engine will be too hot. If you doubt it at all replace it. It does so much and costs so little.

No, the 94 escort is a 2nd generation and the 97 is a third generation. 1991-1996 is 2nd generation and 1997-2002 is a third generation.

No. The 97 is a third generation escort and the 96 is a second generation escort.
