Look in the engine compartment for a sticker which identifies the engine family it will either be on the under side of the hood or on the cross brace above the radiator, use this number to order parts.

It doesn't sound like a good idea. See a custom shop that could design and install it properly. You would need to know stress points and frame design. Putting something in improperly could be dangerous while giving you a false sense of security.

What tool would i need to remove cylinder head bolts on a 93 ford escort gt

A cylinder head removal tool is provided for removing the cylinder head from the engine block of an engine.The tool comprises an elongated bar made of tool steel with means for bolting the bar to the cylinder head and for mounting pusher bolts which can be tightened down onto exposed threaded ends of frozen studs holding the cylinder head. As the bolts are tightened down onto the studs the cylinder head is gradually lifted upward free from the studs.

Fiesta 1.3 1998. teperature gauge not working where is is sensor located on the engine

There is a connector/sensor with green or red ring in the heater pipe on the back.

Assuming all your other instruments are functioning ok, disconnect the sender wire and ground it against the cylinder head, (ignition on). If the gauge needle then moves, you should replace the sender unit.

How do you bleed the brakes on a 98 ford escort zx2?

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..
