Is it manual? There was a trick we used to do with the older ford sierra gear box when they did the same, put auto trans oil in it.

Where is the oil pump on 1999 ford escort z2

oil pumps are located inside the engine, at the bottom. if your oil pump is gone, generally the engine as a whole is also shot. however you can buy a new one and pay someone to partially take the engine apart and replace it. however i would look around for a used engine with much lower mileage, and swap that into your car. that way everything inside the engine is newer, and all the parts have worn in and aged together. also you can buy an entire rebuilt engine and swap that in. a rebuilt engine is going to be 2 thousand anyway with at least 500 labor. for 1 thousand you can generally get someone to install a used engine.

you should not need a diagram. most gasket kits have the correct torque and order of torque for your fitting procedures. if unsure, put everything of in a line, then reverse to put it on . cheers goodluck

1999 ford escort speedometer works but the odometer doesnt how do i fix it and where is it located thankyou ricky

The odometer has nylon gears. I guess your gears could have stripped out. You can find a cluster with similar miles to yours and put that in. You can try replacing the wheel but if the gears in the drive part are busted, they won't drive a new wheel. If the gears on the odometer are busted then it won't work at all.

Ford escort 1.8 td

Remove the hose at the intake on the turbo and see that it turns freely with no sideways movement. If that checks out ok, then see that the air filter is clean. At the air filter also check the intake is free of any debre. Most times if a turbo is not working propperly oil will leak causing the car to smoke. Frankster016
