Hello,these fords have an emergency fuel shut off usually located in the
trunk on the drivers side quarter panel. Sometimes just a bump will
trigger them. Locate it and push the button in on the top.

I take it the water level in the expansion tank is ok. You could have a blocked core in the heater. Also the heater could be leaking. You could try flushing the cooling system and checking for leaks and blockages.

I would check that you are getting a live feed to your glow plugs terminals first, on cold starting, with a 12v test light.
Expensive to renew them, and then find it was the fuse or relay !
Best of luck !

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 model.it may inquire whether you have a/c, 4wd, etc. may need more oil, if so.
