This car uses the speed sensor (speedometer gear) as a 'dipstick' -- it's not a dipstick in the normal sense. here are the instructions for checking your fluid:

HOW TO REPLACE A SHIFTER CABLE ON A 1997 FORD ESCORT LX?


Is this an automatic? or standard transmission? If standard, you may be talking about the clutch cable? Usually, the transmissions are controlled by Linkage between the transmission and the shift lever. Better detail if you are DIY is a repair manual. you will want one next time. Your library may have one, you auto parts store, or try filepeep.com if they have it, or try manualslib.com

Where to find the auto transmission fluid drain plug on a 1997 ford escort?


Hi, there is no drain plug. You must remove the pan to drain the fluid unless you want to sure a pump through the dipstick pipe. You should probably take the pan off anyway to check for metal shavings and to replace the filter. The filter usually comes with a new pan gasket. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Where is the automatic transmission dipstick located on a 89 ford escort and why does the gear shift act in its starting, whether or not? ( moving it)


Dip stick comes out of dip stick tube coming from transmission (side of trans) Look real hard on the side of the transmission behind the engine you will see it.

The second issue sounds like a neutral safety switch.
