SOURCE: 1989 ford escort cabriolet gearbox oil

is it manual tranny? if so u do so under the car by removing the fill up plug which is located on the side of the tranny on driver side of the car if i remember. The plug under the tranny is to drain it.

If u drain it, when u fill it back up, u do so until oil slightly spills out by way of that side plug.

Yes, All the years of the ZX2 utilize the same engine. 1998-2003 are all the same except for ECU programing and the MAF wiring. You should not have a problem.

SOURCE: how do I change my oil on my 98 ford escort zx2

Try this.

On level ground, jack up the front of the car and support it with axle stands.

Get an open container that will take more than 5 ltrs.

Under the engine block you will find the sump.

On the sump you should find a 13mm nut, this is the drain plug.

Undo the drain plug and have the empty container directly below the sump plug.

Retain the sump plug and clean it with a rag.

When the oil has drained out of the sump, put back the plug making sure the washer is in good condition and the plug is tight.

Now unscrew the oil filter having the old oil container below the filter housing to catch any oil.

Wipe around the the filter housing to remove any and all old oil.

Now offer up the new oil filter but do not tighten.

If the new filter fits the oil filter housing, then remove it and lightly oil the rubber seal on the filter with clean oil.

Now refit the filter and tighten it up. Not too tight, you can do this by hand but get it as tight as you can.

Now lower the car to to the ground.

At the top of the engine you will find an oil filler cap. Undo this cap.

Now put in the new oil to just below the full mark on the dip stick. Let the oil drain through the engine to the sump for a couple of minutes before checking the oil level.

If the level is between 1/2 and full, replace the filler cap and start the engine.

Now look at the oil filter and the sump plug for any leaks. Also check around the oil filler cap for oil leaks and spillage.

With the engine turned off. Clean any oil spillages and tighten up the oil filter, sump and oil filler cap as required.

Now leave the oil to drain back to the sump for a few minutes.

Check the oil level and top up as required.

I find that it is best to top the oil up to just below the Max mark.

This should solve the problem.

Trying to find the correct replacment oil level indicator (dip stick)for 2002 Ford Escort SE number on the old one is F7CE-6750-AD and it is 25" . I went through Ford dealer and the one I was given is way...


It's going to be hard to get the right one, as you well know, what you could try, is do a oil change with oil filter, get an after market dip stick, after replacing oil and filter, start engine, turn it off, insert dip stick, and mark it with a file where the oil level is, that will be your new full line.

You don't fix a bad oil pump you replace it. It's inside the oil pan on the bottom of the engine. Make sure you have the slot alligned with the matching pin before you bolt it in place.

I'm looking for instructions for changing the headlight bulb on a 2002 ford escort. I need to know how to gain access to the bulb so I can change it.


pop your hood and disconnect the wire that is plugged to the back of the head light. You then can twist the bulb and it should come out. Be careful when installing the new bulb not to touch it with your fingers. The oil in our skin wil cause the new bulb to burn out a few seconds after installation.
