'99 ford escort radio changes modes then turns off
Recently, the radio has been difficult to adjust. Equalizing and alike. the controls don't stay where you pit them. I have to work with them for a while to get a good balance. Finally, they stay adjusted. Now, the radio won't stay on, the CD changes to tape and then the radio turns off by itself. What's up with that?

Its my belief that stereos in vehicles can become corrupted by maleware code. Do you play mp3, ipod, or burned cds in the stereo. I broke my factory stereo when I played a burned cd once. The market is ripe for virus and maleware protection for your car stereo so don't be surprised if you see virus protection and their virus creating friends on the scene soon. "Try reseting the stereo". You can also try to pull the ground to the car battery for 2 minutes but you will have to let the car idle for 10 minutes after you reconnect the post to set the idle correctly and let the car essentially reboot. Also jump starting a vehicle could cause malfunctions in the stereo if not breaking the electronics inside, very likely in the colder climates.

It depends on what is wrong with the clutch. Is it slipping, juddering or making gear selection difficult?
Not all Ford Escorts have self-adjusting clutches; some are manually adjusted and need attention from time-to-time and proper engagement can be prevented if the pedal has risen too high.
Even the automatic adjuster can cause problems sometimes as can the clutch cable.
Before starting the big job of dismantling the suspension and removing the gearbox it is as well to check what can be checked and be sure lots of work is really needed.
I don't see an SE and not sure what you mean by "disconnect" but you can disconnect it electrically at the instrument panel fuse panel by removing the 5A RADIO fuse and the 10A ROOM fuse or by disconnecting the connectors on the rear of the radio
the transmission may still be rescued I had this problem before find the band adjustment adjust it to 1/2 turn try to do this first, also these are notorious for the transmission transducer to leak internally pull the hose is it wet in there if it is replace it, try the simple approach to solve the fix before somone says its mechanical and internally damage
If you have rear rotors that look like a rotor mounted on top of a drum brake, you will have an emergency brake inside the drum portion. The rear brake rotors are not flat like the front rotors for this style.
The E brakes have brake shoes and they have "Star" wheels for adjustment just like the regular drum brake. You really need to take off the rear rotors to inspect the inner drum portion. If you do adjust the E brakes without looking at the drum part, chances are the drum is pitted and rusty and you will be lucky to stop once before the E brake linings are ground off.
The other type of E brake works off the Rotor pads. You will see the brake cable attached to a lever on each wheel. There will be an Equalizing cable connecting both rear wheels with an adjustment point joining the main cable. Although the 3 clicks moves the main cable, to have both rear brakes equally tight you need the Equalizing properly adjusted.
if you have a no spark scenario i would check your crank sensor located at the top left side of the harmonic balance pulley.the crankshaft (about 11'oclock) a 2 wire plug with a sensor on it check to see if it is damaged or unsecured. this sensor can cause no spark if not working correctly. This sensor is based of frequency not voltage testing is difficult, just make sure that there isnt too muck air gap. and that it is secured.Lastly may want to check timing possible that the belt has jumped some teeth and she has fallen out of timing. maybe a bad tensioner The coil will adapt i think up to 10 degree, ****** or advance. Good luck
