Good Afternoon, I'm thinking you have a good excuse if you ever get caught speeding, however I don't believe it would hold up. The good news it is not hard to remedy your situation, it can either be the vehicle speed sensor, which I am doubting because the last couple escorts I worked on in the past few months ended up being the speedometer unit itself. What I would recommend is going to your local salvage yard and tell them the year make and model of your car and the miles (be sure to get something close if not just a hair over) the trim panel comes off from around the intrument cluster and then the cluster itself is held in by 4 screws. remove the 4 screws tilt the column down so it is easier to remove the electrical plug in and then plug in the new one, take it down the road before you put it back together at least have it in place to make sure you did not get a bad one and verify your other gauges are working right too especially the temperature gauge (they are common to go bad as well). Hope this helps, and if you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

Both turn signals on my 1998 Ford Escort zx2 don't flash.


The 98 Escort is actually a Mazda 323 with Ford trim. It uses a solid state flasher relay for both turn signals and hazard lights.
The relay is behind the speedometer. My guess is the relay has died.
You can look it up online or check with your local auto parts store to get a visual.

I need to adjust my clutch on a 1998 ford zx2


Your vehicle has a hydraulic clutch, and there really is no "adjustment." Verify fluid level in the clutch fluid reservoir, and consider replacing clutch plates if you are experiencing slipping.

I have a 1998 ford escort zx2 and the back left


If you can still find a replacement left light lens of your 1998 ford escort zx2, you can replace it, of course. Just
take off the mounting screw of the lens, and take off the
defective lens. Then, you can mount the replacement.

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.
