SOURCE: Do timing belts in 1994 Ford Escorts ever need replacing?

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

SOURCE: Ford Escort transmission question

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.

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.

96 escort 1.9 manual jerking while accelerating 96 escort 1.9 manual


best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph

1994 Ford Escort jerks into 2nd gear.


Make sure you're replacing your transmission oil about every 30,000 miles, or as directed in your owners manual service section.
If your gears are slipping, it could be as simple as low fluid or old fluid no longer providing the correct lubrication between your gears.
The issue could also be that your gears have worn down and the metal parts aren't fitting together correctly anymore. This will cause a jump in gear shifting and can only be remedied by rebuilding the shaved down gears in the transmission. Typically, this issue can be identified by pulling out your transmission dipstick and inspecting for evidence of small metal shavings in the fluid.

Good luck!

Smoke comes out of the tailpipe when first


60,000 miles or so depending on the engine but if its blue smoke which it means its oil burning its sounds like valve guide seals.
