SOURCE: Brake Rotor Replacement Ford Escort 1997

The rotor is not held on by the big nut, it slides on and off, only the wheel holds it on, the clearance between the rotor and the front hub which the large nut holds on is very small, rust forms and the rotor gets stuck, use a hammer or a large piece of wood if you plan to reuse the rotor and hit it from side to side, spray penetrating oil to loosen the rust, it is a bugger but it will come loose, then make sure to wire brush all the rust off or wheel retention may be compromised.

SOURCE: Replacing dashboard clock. How do I remove the

You shouldn't have to remove the dash to replace a clock, the dash basically does not come out. It would take you 2 days to do it. The clock itself should pop out of its spot and be serviceable.

SOURCE: changing the water pump on a ford escort 1997

2.0L Engine
SOHC ENGINE
See Figure 8

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise the car and support it with safety stands.
CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  1. Drain and recycle the engine coolant.
  2. Remove the timing belt.
  3. Unfasten the timing belt tensioner bolt and remove the tensioner.
  4. Disconnect the lower radiator hose from the water pump.
  5. Lower the car and disconnect the heater hose from the water pump.
  6. Unfasten the three bolts and one stud from the water pump.
  7. Remove the water pump.

WARNING Do not use any abrasive grinding discs to remove gasket material. Use a plastic manual gasket scraper to remove the gasket residue. Be careful not to scratch or gouge the aluminum sealing surfaces when cleaning them.

Have a 1997 ford escort 2.0l No sound when I engage the starter, it happened about 6 months ago. But started working again. Not sure if it's starter or solenoid, or both??


I would check all the cables and connections on the battery and the starter for corrosion or looseness. The solenoid is mounted on the starter. I would have the starter tested, most parts stores can test the starter and solenoid for you for free. I would also check to see if you are getting power from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid when the key is turned to the starting postion.
