  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the transaxle assembly.
  4. If the clutch assembly is to be reused, matchmark the pressure plate and the flywheel so they can be assembled in the same position.
  5. Install flywheel holding tool T84P-6375-A or equivalent, in a transaxle mounting hole on the engine and engage the tooth of the holding tool into the flywheel ring gear.

  1. Loosen the pressure plate-to-flywheel retaining bolts one turn at a time, in a crisscross pattern, until the spring tension is relieved, to prevent pressure plate cover distortion.
  2. Support the pressure plate and unfasten the retaining bolts. Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc from the flywheel.

If the flywheel shows any signs of overheating (blue discoloration) or if it is badly grooved or scored, it should be refaced or replaced.
  1. Inspect the flywheel, clutch disc, pressure plate, release bearing, pilot bearing and the clutch fork for wear. Replace parts as needed.

To install:
  1. If removed, install a new pilot bearing using a suitable installation tool.
  2. If removed, install the flywheel. Make sure the flywheel and crankshaft flange mating surfaces are clean. Tighten the flywheel retaining bolts to 71-76 ft. lbs. (96-103 Nm) on the 1.8L engine or 54-67 ft. lbs. (73-91 Nm) on the 1.9L engine.
  3. Clean the pressure plate and flywheel surfaces thoroughly. Position the clutch disc and pressure plate into the installed position and support them with a dummy shaft or clutch aligning tool. If the clutch assembly is being reused, align the matchmarks that were made during the removal procedure.
  4. Install the pressure plate-to-flywheel retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts in the correct sequence to 13-20 ft. lbs. (18-26 Nm). Remove the alignment tool.

  2. Install the transaxle assembly.
  3. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Bleed the hydraulic clutch system, if needed.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Road test the vehicle and check the clutch for proper operation.

1999 ford escort 1300cc manual.. cloggs, jumps, backfires


All of these problems point to a fuel delivery problem.
The fact that a fuel treatment helped, leads me to believe its a dirty fuel system. Also, the cold start problem is an enrichment problem, as there has to be a richer mixture to fire when its cold than hot.
First thing to check is the fuel filter that may be located in the fuel tank.

Does the 1994 Ford escort use a hydraulic clutch?


Hi,

No your escort has a clutch cable, it is on the year change point between shapes but if it is the older shape then you have what is called a ratchet and pawl mechinism for self adjustment of the cable, these are however prone to failure and not the easiest job to change. If you have a later shape escort then your clutch cable is adjust by means of a 6mm allen head type screw on the clutch pedal.

Hope this helps
