On console shifters, the linkage from the brake pedal gets cokes and coffee spilled on it and woh't move. TAke the console out and clean the linkage.

Sounds like your neutral safety switch. When you depress your brake, a cylinder in the shifter mechanism releases and allows the gear change. I would bring it to a mechanic, and get it inspected.

No. The 97 is a third generation escort and the 96 is a second generation escort.

On front of the radiator.

could be jammed you can remove the plastic around the shifter by taking off the panel covers by your heater blower with the small clips then you can pop off the cover around the shifter sometimes things can get stuck try shifting it without the covers on if that doesn't do it you may need to replace the whole thing... can help you out!

your syncros might be worn or the shifter might need a new plasice ball on the end or the whole shifter needs rebuilt

the shifter is all in one. you have to replace the whole shifter. the nob is attached
