For sure your cv joint is bad, and that can get expensive, myhas that problem right now, was quoted at least $500 to fix because it messes with the alignment and tire wear and other wear. expensive. I now have a 90 , with a dead battery at the moment. The grinding noise could be a wheel bearing. also replaced those before.
check your fuse. i had the same problem. that might be it. I doubt a fuse, the clicking is probably the horn relay that you hear. Fair chance the horn or connection at the horn is the problem. The clicking noise is the relay, and since it is clicking I doubt that your switch is bad, so check the fuse and also check the horn (hook it to the battery).
This is because of rabbits communicating.
If a 1995 Escort is accelerating without the driver touching the gas pedal, there is a problem with the throttle position sensor. This sensor controls when the car needs to be given more gas or less gas depending on the position of the accelerator.
If its making a horrible grinding noise, it could be the bearing!
FIRST CHECK THE BATTERY IF GOOD]> THEN STARTER MOST LIKELY IS BAD ?
I was having the same problem with my daughter's escort. I replaced the cam position sensor and the problem stopped. Advanced Auto Parts will check the computer to find out the problem for free.

your battery is flat Could be that your starter is dead. The clicking is the starter solenoid. That's a good thing that it is at least clicking. Replace the starter.
My girlfriend's 1995 Escort made a funny knocking/grinding/chirping noise from the back part of the engine. The motor mounts were loose and the problem was solved after they were tightened.
the valve cover gasket!
Sounds like the horn is not making a ground. Did you do anything with the horn? What else didnt work before you replaced the fuse? I have the same problem. Prior to replacing the fuse and getting the clicking back, the horn stuck and ran continuously, which popped the fuse. Another question: where is the actual horn located on a '98 Escort? Thanks. Same problem here. My horn button clicks, but I have constant 12VDC at the horn terminal. The horn itself is behind passenger side headlight, above bumber bracket. Can you say "scraped knuckles?"
odds are its the flasher, its a small silver can somewhere under the dash, its the thing making the clicking sound when they did work
my 1997 ford escort wagon 2.0 i put a transmission in it it changes low second but not drive what is the problem
ran in to same problem with 93 escort. went to ford escort owners association (feoa.net). my problem turned out to be a vacuum leak. the forums will help narrow down problem. there is also a way to check and find out error codes on the site.
If your car is stalling while it is idling you could have a vacuum leak in one of your hoses. I had that problem on my 2000 escort ZX2.
Replace the switch or bypass it.
Could be a fuse , a sensor , or some other problem
The problem may be with your starter and not with the clutch.
A 1989 Ford Escort would not be getting fuel if the fuel pump has failed or the filter is clogged. A local mechanic or dealership can diagnose and repair the problem.
A problem with the Anti-lock Brake System has been detected . It could be a fuse , a sensor , or some other problem
The fuel filter probably needs to be replaced. It could be stalling because of a major vacuum leak. Check the PCV valve and all the hoses.
The 1996 Ford Escort had a self-adjusting system. If pushing on the pedal will not solve the problem, you are most likely going to need to change the ratchet system in the pedal.
NO. An 86 Escort is a 1st generation Escort and a 93 Escort is a 2nd generation.
Problem with the electrical system. More than likely alternator is bad.
Escort can be used as a verb and a noun. Verb: Will you escort me to the party? Noun: Will you be my escort?
