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.
I'd bet that the clutch is dragging, not releasing fully.
Is it a manual or automatic gearbox? Both the automatic and the manual require Dexron/Mercon.
You can get them on e bay.
Should be a plug at the side of the manual transmission - fill oil to this level
could be the clutch cable is broke/stretched or the cable is not disengaging the throw out bearing from the pressure plate.
its a shift light for a manual trans. means opimum rpm for shifting to higher gear
The gear shouldn't cost over about $20, and the labor shouldn't be more than about $50-70.
on gear box to side near filler plug or on top of gear box
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.
It tells the transmission what gear it is in
I think you mean the shifting pattern? 1st gear- far left and up 2nd gear- far left and down 3rd gear- middle and up 4th gear- middle and down 5th gear- far right and up reverse gear- far right and down.
To repair a transmission that is stuck in gear on a 1989 Ford Escort 1.9L CFI, it will be necessary to drop the transmission out of the vehicle. It will probably have to be overhauled by replacing a belt or fixing the linkage, that is causing it to be stuck in gear.
this uses ford transmission fluid NOT gear oil in the manual transmission. Filler is on the top of the Transmission and is NOT meant to be changed for the life of the Car. I currently have several of these and even at 350,000 have not changed the fluid.
The automatic dipstick is located in a tube close to the brake/clutch mastet cylinder. The manual has no dipstick. You have to take the speed sensor and speedometer gear out of the top of the engine. Fluid level should be to the bottom of the gear.
98 ford escord transmissiom dose not shift the last gear.
I had a 1991 Ford Mustang 5.0 L - LX - automatic , and it had 2.73 's
It is important to have the right fluid in a car to help it run smoothly. For a 1992 Ford Ranger with a Manual Transmission the best gear oil is Mercon V.
The neutral safety switch on a 1997 Ford Escort is located inside the steering column. It prevents the engine from being started while in gear.

its a shift light. it measn your at the ideal rpm to shift into a higher gear. only manual trannys have this so im to assume your driving a stick shift.
they are gear to gear driven.
The gear box ( manual transmission ) is bolted to the rear of the engine
forget to tell, the car as an automatic transmission
