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 transmission dip stick, or how can i check the fluid level


if this car is AUTO the dipstick will be on the same side as the gearbox underneath the hood. clearly marked with a red (i think) coloured plastic handle you check the level with the engine running and in park. if MANUAL gearbox then look down the front of the gearbox and about half way up theres a hexagon drive level plug - 8mm allen key hex i think - remove this and fill till oil runs out with engine off.

Where do you add transmission fluid on a manual transmission


For a manual transmission you need to use gear lube not transmission fluid. There is a plug, it should be about 2/3 of the way up on the side of the transmission. The plugs vary, it may be square, hex or recessed

Replacing transmission fluid in standard


The manual transmission in the Ford Escort uses transmission fluid, it is checked and filled in the same hole. That hole is where the speedometer cable is hooked up to the transmission. Remove the speedometer cable, set aside, then remove the locking bolt that holds the speedometer drive unit in place. Pull up on the drive unit and it will come out, look on the side of the drive unit and you will see the level indicator line for full and add. Fill as needed and reinstall the drive unit and cable. Hope this helps, let me know.

Thx ahead for the 2 people who responded before to this ? Anyways my standard transmission slips 25% of the time only on 3rd gear. I do have 5 gears. Its been like this for 7months and never got worse or...


that is very difficult. it could be that you need to change your filter and fluid. but, it could be that you do need to replace or rebuild your transmission. if you go to your local autozone, they can help you out with everything you need.

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:
