    hi from uk know the van here in uk but could you be a little bit more specific as to which lights do not work? and was this a sudden failure? or have you any history prior to this happening ? more info would help identify and advise on possible fault and remedy ?

How much oil will a ford escort van 1.8 diesel


if you have the owners manual-look in the index for oil capacity, or fluid capacities. that should inform you of the oil type and capacity (if you change the filter as well, it will prob. take another half-quart or so. the manual should inform you.
if no manual get on ford website, and search for escort 1.8L diesel van. precede with the year of model.it may inquire whether you have a/c, 4wd, etc. may need more oil, if so.
good luck!

Ford escort 55 van van starts after 3 or 4 atemps once warmed up starts 1st time?


You havent said which engine you have got so I presume it is the 1.8 diesel. Therefore, when you go to start it when it is cold, wait for the glow plug light to go off then wait approx another 15 seconds as the glow plugs continue to heat up after the light goes off before you try to start it.

Problem with my heater on my escort van


try putting a 12v feed to the heater fan, if it works, you have a problem with your wiring, if it doesnt work, your blower is faulty.

hope this helps.

Escort van 55 blower heater does not blow at all


I had this problem on my '98 Ford Escort ZX2.
It did not need a new blower but a $15 Blower Motor Resistor.  The wires and connectors rusted out.
