Where do you put in transmission fluid and brake fluid in a 2001 Ford Escort ZX2?

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.

You don't. It has a sealed transmission. If you think something is wrong with tranny you should take it to someone. Hopefully you don't need a new transmission.
