Question about Ford Escort
My escort has been sitting for about 10 months. something is keeping the wheels from turning, can we try giving it a tug to knock it loose? I'm giving it to someone and need to get it out of my driveway onto a flatbed
From sitting the brakes have probably rusted a little (lot) to the rotors One of my cars did this and I dragged it down the driveway until it finally gave way. I can't recommend that but you can disasemble the brakes and see if you can get the calipers moving and the pads loose.

the throttle valve is stuck in the valve body. it is the valve connected to the cable that goes to the throttle body. changing fluid and using an additive for this symtom and a long drive to heat it up good to lossen it will help it. if you do the fluid change and drop the pan locate it by following that cable from throttle to transmission's side and see if you can move it free.
good luck man

Testimonial: "Great answer thanks a lot!"
You're going to have to jostle that wheel pretty roughly from my experience...
If it's an Automatic Make sure you are truly in park or neutral before removing the key.
If it's a manual you might have to rack the release button harder then usual. My 90 can get finicky in the cold sometimes.

power steering pumps is running low on power steering fluid. That leak is probably power steering fluid. Hopefully this helps
