You need to remove the cowl under the wheel,and drill the bolts out with a thin bit,then use an easyout to remove the 2 bolts.the barrel will then fall out.....how on earth did you get a bit of wood into the barrel?????

I WANT TO CHANGE THE KEY BARRELS OF MY 1996 ESCORT MK6 18 DESIEL. IF POSSIBLE I DO NOT WANT TO USE FORD'S KEY BARRELS BECAUSE THEY WEAR ALOT. CAN I FIT ANOTHER BRAND THAT ARE MORE DURABLE?


There are a couple different brand names of aftermarket key lock cylinders. LOCKSMART has one for auto transmission and for manual transmission. Part Number LC65620 For the auto, Part Number LC65580 for manual. These are available through Autozone and O'Reilly's. BORG WARNER has makes these also The part numbers are the same. (These are avilable through O'Reilly's and Advance Auto. It may be helpful to let you know that these are probably all manufactured by the same manufacturer that makes the MOTORCRAFT (Ford) cylinders. They just sell to different distributors, who put their names on them.

Note that these are the part numbers for the key and tumbler assembly only. The complete ignition switch assembly ( tumbler, barrel, switch ) is also available through these same suppliers.

Cant find tdc markings on escort 1997 1.8


Click on the following free, direct LinkS. It has all the Timing Belt Diagrams you will need, complete with Instructional and Directional Diagrams to set your Timing.
To my knowledge the 1997 Ford Escort only had a 2.0L not a 1.8L.
The 1996 had available the 1.8L and 1.9L. I could be mistaken - my apology.
In any case:
The 1st Link is for the 1996 Ford Escort 1.8L
The 2nd Link is for the 1997 Ford Escort 2.0L
Compare/use.

Let me know if this helped or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

1994 Ford Escort, will not start. i have replaced the starter, starter relay, and battery. the car still will not start. please help.


hi,
set the parking brake and make sure its in neutral then
try to bypass the ignition switch by jumping the starter relay under the hood. take the small wire off the relay and use a 2 foot piece of wire to go from the positive battery terminal to the terminal on the starter relay you just unplugged. if it turns over and if its a manual transmission the clutch pedal interlock switch may be busted, on the clutch pedal theres a small switch that senses the pedal is to the floor and it wont start. you can try to bypass that with a simple jumper wire. lastly if neither of those do it then you may have to drop the steering column and put a new ignition switch in it.

Replace the automatic shifter cable


I had a similiar problem on my 1996 Escort wagon. The shifter was stuck in park. There is a lil plastic circle to the right of the shifer. Get a small screwdriver and pry off the cap. Then insert a small screwdriver into the hole to see if you can release the mechanism. (by pressing down) If it is frozen like mine was, just remove the 2 screws on the shifter handle one on the side and the other on the side facing the radio. Then remove the 6 screws on the console. Remove the console, in 2 pieces...piece by the parking break first then the larger part that sets over the PRNDL if the lever is frozen and rusted like mine was get some penatrant like WD-40 or liquid wrench....squirt it into the base of the shifter and try to work the mechanism forward and reverse...Note: there is a safety mechanism that holds the shifter in position but will release when you step on the brake pedal. Hope this info helps.

2000 ford escort want start. checked fuses and battery . try to turn over but want what can i check. it was running went in house and came back out would not start


Hi

Get a jump start, with good set of leads.

If no joy , follow the Positive lead from the battery to the starter motor, and give it a tap with a small hammer or big spanner, while someone turns the ignition key.

Good Luck !

Remember to give me a FixYa rating....Thanks...John.

Brake Rotor Replacement Ford Escort 1997


The rotor is not held on by the big nut, it slides on and off, only the wheel holds it on, the clearance between the rotor and the front hub which the large nut holds on is very small, rust forms and the rotor gets stuck, use a hammer or a large piece of wood if you plan to reuse the rotor and hit it from side to side, spray penetrating oil to loosen the rust, it is a bugger but it will come loose, then make sure to wire brush all the rust off or wheel retention may be compromised.

Key stuck in ignition


Take the steering column cover off and tap/hit the ignition barrel with suitable tool (small hammer)while twisting on key.It may be enough to loosen it so key comes out.You will have to remove steering column cover to swap with replacment barrel anyway .Get someone to turn steering wheel while tapping/hitting barrel as it could be the steering column lock pin thats jamming.good luck.
