There is NO 1 particular screw.. Theres 4.. One on each wheel cylinder on the rear.. and one on each caliper on the front.. If ya dont know this.. then ya probably need to let a shop do it.. Ya have to start at the fartherest point away from the master cylinder. and work from farther.. to closer.. Its not easy if ya never done it..

Did u bleed slave cylinder? If not you must bleed just like you would bleed breaks.... you need to make sure you fill the master cylinder resvr too before attempting to bleed. If r his doesn't work post back with update.

I've been working on my 2001 Ford escort zx2. I dont know alot about cars so my neighbor was helping me. i was removing my radiator to do some work on my thermostat (tapping out one of the stripped screws)...


Buy a Haynes manual for $15 for starters. Remember that coolant systems also have tranny cooling functions too. They needed to install them because the trans are getting cheaper and cheaper (this ain't the old days) and keeping the fluid cool is important. I've worked on a 97-98, but they aren't that far apart despite the P-engine vs. DOHC. You might even have the ever present Check the Haynes (or Mitchell or AllData - the Ford Dealer will probably print you a page or two for free on this so you can see how things are looped) - and you can get things put back together. You didn't say auto or 5 speed, but I suggest you check out the MANY devoted forums to Escorts and Ford Focus. Your answers likely lay there as well.

I bled the brakes on a 1998 ford escort zx2 but still cant get a full peddle


A bad master cylinder can cause this as well and improper bleeding. A leaking wheel cylinder or a bad rubber brake hose can cause this as well. Are you using a vacuum bleeder?

I need to bleed my brakes on a 1999 ford escot zx2 where is the bleeder at


Its not really a bleed/ What you need is someone in the car pressing on the barkes pumping the brakes then holding them down tighten the calipers and do it over and over till you get the pad on the rotor and it usually takes 3-4 times for the brake pad to set itself/ Please ratemy repsonse thank you very much

Brake lights


I have a 98 and had the same problem just today, I found the problem by looking up where the pedal goes to and you will see two switches that the pedal hits when released, its the switch on the left side of the car, you will notice two (well one is prolly missing since the lights wont go off) blueish rubber pads on the brake pedal that hit the switches. since the one that goes to the switch to turn the lights off is gone go out and buy a small plastic body push screw to insert in the hole the old pad was in. there ya go all fixed
