SOURCE: I have a creaking,clunking noise

Try looking at the sway bar link on each side. If they move easily by hand then they likely need to be replaced. You can do a sort of self test by rocking the car up and down at the front fender tire well. If you can hear it clicking when you rock it, it is likely that sway bar link. Good luck!

SOURCE: rear drum removal 1998 ford escort

Hi,
Removing the drums can be a little difficult if they are really worn and. have a large lip inside where the brake shoes have worn them down.
Anyway here goes, loosen wheel nut/s slightly, raise the car and make safe by using an axle stand or similar then lower it so the wheel is off the ground.
Remove all nut/s and take wheel to one side, you'll then see the whole of the drum, there should be 1 or 2 retaining Philips type screws between the locating holes for the wheel, these need to be removed possibly with an impact screwdriver if too tight.
Once screws are out release the hand brake, hopefully the drum will rotate, try waggling it from side to side along it circumference pulling the drum towards you, it may move a few mm then lock? try using a very heavy rubber mallet to thump the outside edge of the drum whilst turning it. This hopefully will loosen the brake shoes holding the drum on you may need to keep doing this for a good while.
If you have no success then try carefully doing the same with a copper/hide hammer. Still no joy then possibly the lip inside is too great meaning the drums maybe beyond their wear limit so a good belt with a heavy lump hammer is the only way.
I hope this helped? please press the Blue button if happy with my FREE Efforts, Thank You!

SOURCE: How do I replace the Fuel Filter on my 1996 Ford

Check this guido for Replace a Fuel Filter...

Parts:
1. Fuel Filter

Tools:
1. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
2. Hose Pincher
3. Flare Nut Wrench
4. Flat Head Screwdriver
5. Socket Set

Steps:
Step 1 Open the hood and locate the fuel filter. If the fuel filter is not in the engine compartment, follow the fuel line from the tank until the fuel filter is located.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

Step 2 If the fuel filter has a clear case, inspect the filter element for dirt.

Step 3 If the fuel filter case is not see-through, remove it from the fuel line. Drain the fuel from the filter into a container and inspect the condition of the fuel.
o Tip: Caution: Before removing fuel lines or fuel related parts, make sure that the fuel pressure is relieved from the vehicle fuel system. To relieve the pressure in fuel injected systems, remove the fuel pump fuse and run the engine.

Step 4 Install the new fuel filter making sure that the flow is in the correct direction. The arrow on the fuel filter is the direction of flow from the tank to the engine.

Step 5 Secure the lines back onto the fuel filter. If applicable, reinstall the fuel pump fuse.

Step 6 Start the engine and check for fuel leaks.

Step 7 Test drive the vehicle to check for a rough running engine, hesitation, or lack of power.


Hope helps (remember rated this).

Were is the fuel cut off switch for a 91 ford escort LX? its not in the truck and behind the passenger side


I read some solutions about the placement of this switch. Apparently the plastic panels are different on hatchbacks and wagons because the area is finished unlike the trunk.
There should be an access panel with a plastic "plate" attached to the Passengers side of the rear shock tower. Some designs do not have the "access plate" and require you to Pop the entire panel facia off to access the switch.
You may even find it behind the front Kick panels on either side. Try going to Autozone or Advance and ask for the switch. If you know what it looks like, it will be easier to find. Ask them what their books show for the location.
This switch is the most migratory item in a car. It is not just your Model because most Manufactuers can not commit to placing it in one area.
