SOURCE: noise in front end when steering wheel is turned

Try replacing the Sway bar bushings first, 10 to 1 they need it anyway, this should fix the creaking noise. If this dose not solve the problem then check the power stearing fluid & top off if needed, then right after you do this, start the van and have some one you trust turn the stearing wheel hard left and hard right for 2 min., and you get under the front of the van and look for a power steering fluid leak, if you find a leak replace leaking line or part. If this dose not solve the problem in some rare cases the power stearing box or pitmen arm is bad and you should not try to do this at home. seek a full auto shop.

SOURCE: horn wont work on my ford escort van t reg.any

Most fords have a horn relay under the hood in the fuse block. Fords do not have words on the cover, only numbers. You will need your glove box book to tell you what fuse and or realy it is.

SOURCE: how much oil will a ford escort van 1.8 diesel

if you have the owners manual-look in the index for oil capacity, or fluid capacities. that should inform you of the oil type and capacity (if you change the filter as well, it will prob. take another half-quart or so. the manual should inform you.
if no manual get on ford website, and search for escort 1.8L diesel van. precede with the year of may inquire whether you have a/c, 4wd, etc. may need more oil, if so.
good luck!

Hi my escort van 52 reg heater will only get slightly hot 1800

I'm not particularly familiar with that vehicle but all that I have seen also have a valve that opens and closes to allow or restrict the fluid flow to the heater core. It could be a problem if you haven't already eliminated it. The air defecting doors under the dash that direct air to the floor or to the defroster are also suspect.
