How to remove starter on 97 ford escort?

There are 3 bolts. 1 on the top and 2 on the bottom. Take them out and take loose the battery cable and the solenoid wire. You will have to take the battery and tray out to get it out the top. Steering rack keeps you from taking it out the bottom.

Where are the timing marks on a 1990 ford escort gt?

The cover on the passenger side of the motor has long lines on it, those are your timing marks. Hold the timing gun above them and look directly down to the crankshaft pully.

Clean it out!! water will not hurt an alternator but Antifreeze will breakdown the varnish on the Stator windings! Oils is bad but Antifreeze is worse.

Where is the starter located on an '89 Ford Escort GT?

My guess is that it is on right top side of trammy, but not shure, kinda dark right now, if wrong i will repost when light=) it is below the engine and has three bolts. Be carefull though I had an 87 escort back in 1990 and when I had to change the starter the bolts would not turn, eventually the head snapped right off - had a similar problem with a probe. The starter has a strong twisting force and it probably really jams the bolts in after years.

What could cause a 1994 Ford Escort to stall at red lights and stop signs when stopping from normal speed?

Hey Rich==The idle speed solonoid is pprobably to blame. Take it off of the throtle body and clean it with carb cleaner. Also clean th inside of the throtle body where the throtle plate is as a carbon ring forms there. Goodluck Joe I had a similar problem and the PCV tube was punctured. $20 part at a ford dealer and you can replace it yourself. I too had this problem and the PCV tube was cracked and collapsed. Replaced and all was well. I also had this problem, with my 1996 wagon.. problem was a cinked PCV hose, was very cheap, and easy to replace. Fixed the problem ;)

Timing marks of a 1.9 escort 94?

If you are talking about ignition timing there are no marks. The timing is controlled by the computer according to various parmeters of sensors. If you are talking about valve timing the camshaft mark is on the head and the crankshaft mark is on the oil pump housing.

How do you change a headlight on 1997 ford escort wagon?

I have a 96, but i assume that they are quite similar...

The Bulb: if you look at the back of the headlight in the middle there is a black node with wires out the back of it twist it and it should come loose, pull it out and there is the light. Pull the wires and the black sleeve then put the new one in the way you took it out.

The Lens: It has been a while since i replaced my so bare with me. Unfortuanately the lamp is one piece (really bad design). Take the blub out. I cannot remember exactly all the screws to remove but i will go through the general process. Remove the grille (pretty easy) it is just held on with some clips a flathead and some gental persuation will get that off. Remove screws that hold it on. What I'm having problems remembering is if you have to take the blinker off (which it held on by visible screws) You will just have to play by ear. After those screws are out, it should pull right out and replace it with the new one. Don't forget to adjust them!

You need a diagram on how to put back together a motor on a Toyota pickup Can you help?

You can buy a Haynes repair manual at just about any parts store. It may take alot of flipping pages back and forth, but it works. That is how I fixed my 87 pickup.

Can a 91 Escort GT engine 1.8 be replaced with a 91 Escort wagon 1.9 without changing the motor mounts?

It is very likely. If no one tells you yes or no just look at the motor mounts and if they match up then you should be ok. Sorry I can't give you a yes or no answer

although a 91 escort 1.9l engine will bolt into stock location on 91 gt motor mounts, none of the wiring is the same you will have to extract all wiring from donor non gt model

not only is this true, butthe 1.9 is a ford enginethe 1.8 is a Mazda engine manufactured for fordneed i say more?

Where is the neutral safety switch located on a 1993 Ford Escort LX?

Actually it is located below the clutch pedal. There are two screws that hold it in place. It is also used to adjust the height of the pedal. The clutch pedal ignition switch is located above the clutch pedal. It does not have a "neutral safety" swith. It uses a TR(Trasmission Range) sensor that tells the PCM what gear you have selected, so it can properly shift the 4EAT transmission, and also operates the back up lights. The TR sensor is located on top of the transmission, and is fairly easy to access. It it is a standard like mine, it does have a neutral safety switch, without it, you cant start your car, it is located at the top of your clutch pedal inside the car.

How do you loosen the power steering pulley so you can replace the alternator fan belt in a Ford Escort 1994 GT?

For each accessory there will be a locking bolt and a pivot bolt or nut. After they are loosened move the component as needed to tighten or loosen the belt. Many accessories have a square hole designed to accept a 1/2 inch square drive breaker bar. the bar can be used to lever the accessory and tighten the drivebelt ( fan belt ) Others have a cast lug, use an wrench for the same effect, but careful of those knuckles!

How do you take out and install an ignition switch in a 1989 Ford Crown Victoria?

I am assuming your talking about the key w/tumbler and not the switch that is mounted on the column under the dash (wires attached). With this is mind you remove the cover around the bottom of column should be a few Philips head screws in the bottom (note there are deep holes you wont see them per say. Once you have done this and exposed the bottom place your key in the column and turn to run position there will be a pin hole under the key area depress this with a small punch or something similar and remove. If you have lost your key and this is why you are doing this job it just got a bit more tougher. you will need to carefully drill that pin out to remove the lock cylinder. Fords require the key to easily do this job. be very care not to destroy the soft aluminum around where pin is or you wont be able to hold the lock in place. .

How do you change a timing belt on a 1994 Ford Escort and do you need any special tools?

This is a job that is best left up to the experts. Special tools are required and severe damage can be done to the engine if the repair is not done correctly. The fact that you ask the question, shows that you do not have the skill level and knowledge to do this job. Take it to an expert.
