You will find a yellow dipstick handle to the right of the motor, that's where you put in the trans. fluid. Behind that, almost at the engine firewall, you will find a two-and-a-half inch round cap which is slightly higher than the transmission. That is where you add brake fluid. Just open the cap... fill 'er up! Good luck! To fill the trans the proper way, you need to remove the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor). The dipstick tube will work as well but is not as effective when accurately filling the trans as it will give you inaccurate readings when you read the fluid level from the dipstick. It is located near the firewall on the lower part of the trans underneath the starter. It has one sensor clipped into it, and one ten millimeter (10mm) bolt holding it in. Use a long funnel or a funnel with a hose to fill the transmission.

Why would the parking brake light stay on all the time on a 2001 Ford Escort?

Try checking the switch in the hand lever itself. Sometimes it can get a piece of trash stuck in it.or it can be worn out. On a 93 escort the parking brake light also doubles as a low brake fluid warning light. It may be the same with a 2001. So you could have a leak somewhere.
