look at the gearbox under the car there should be a bolt on the side undo it whack the stuff in till it starts pourein out. Actually this is true on most cars, but the escort is different. The transmission uses Mercon Auto Trans. Fluid. You take the speedometer drive cable out of the top of the transmission. Add the fluid in through the opening where the VSS and speedometer drive gear went. The proper level is to the top of the drive gear.

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.
