No they are not. The reason your manual does not saying anything about replacing the timing belt is because 9 times out of 10 most people do not know how to replace the timing belt and make sure that it is on properly and the timing is correct. Also the time belt should be changed around 115,000 miles. But it is never bad to go ahead and get it done if they already did it or are going to

1994 escort, average asking price with a years mot, max 650. I would say you would be better off replacing car.

No no, U JUST REMOVE THE SERVICE PAN FROM THE TRANSMISSION, this is under the car not inside. U will need to jack the car as high in the air as you can get it, use safety stands always, then just unbolt the many bolts that retain the pan onto the transmission case and have a drain pan ready, fluid will go everywhere, install new gasket and filter then add 3 quarts of type "F" trans fluid and idle the engine until the trans is very hot, at least 170 degrees's Fahrenheit, then check the fluid level and top it off to the full zone, DO NOT OVERFILL!

The front seal could be replaced, and not have a problem. If you have a shop other than a transmission shop do the repairs, make sure the torque converter hub is inspected to make certain its not scratched/scorn. If the trans shifts properly and the fluid is not burned or smells burned, this would be an easy repair. If the trans fluid smells burned, and hasn't been serviced regularly, the rebuild would be the way to go. Also, ask what the warranty for any and all repair are on your vehicle. Normal warranty is 1yr, 12.000 miles in the automotive business.
