Look at the breather cover there is a little black plug that they have to remove when they check the air filter it should be plugged in and sometimes our friendly repair shops get in a bit of a hurry

1994 Ford Escort, auto trans, 83,000 mi, randomly won't shift from 1st to 2nd, randomly loses power at hwy speeds


It could be an internal problem with a pump, or it could be it needs to be serviced really bad. Most 'oil change' places can also do transmission services... I'd try that first, before paying a big repair bill to a shop. good luck.

My oil comes on when I down shift to come to a stop but goes off when foot on the gas. I also have a lifter making a noise 2001 ford escortzx2


check and change your oil, the light comes on when braking due to the sensor detecting a low amount, and goes off again when hitting the gas because the oil flows back towards the sensor,, check for the correct amount of oil in the system,, changing the oil and filter could clear the tapping lifter , if not a adjustment could repair it

Manual Transmission fluid for Ford Escort ZX2


I know this sounds crazy according to Ford:

You can use-
Motorcraft MERCON Multi-Purpose (ATF) Transmission Fluid XT-2-QDX MERCON® Alternative Transaxle Fluid - SAE 75W90 Gear Oil F32Z-19C547-MA API GL-4
You are seeing that right, one instance they call for 75W90 and the other it is ATF. It is ok to run either, 75W90 will give you smoother shifts and less noise.

This transmission is filled through the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) hole.

86 Mercury Lynx which is a rebadge Ford Escort


did you try shifting it manually by pulling the shift lever back to "1" then move up to "2" then finally "D"?

I think those old ATX transmissions had a governor that can be changed from the top of the trans without removing it. I think it is held in by a couple of bolts. Clean it with carb cleaner first. Easy repair.

Good luck and have fun. Report back findings and race rsults.
