SOURCE: clutch

some of these are difficult to do where an autoadjuster is used,quicker and easier to use an official ford garage who have a big book with all the times in it and often you are only charged for the time charged in the book but watch out for the golden egg,this is where you are charged for lots of parts that didnt need changing just to make up for an awkard job thats un-economic for the dealer so extra parts are fitted that didnt need changing just to make up for the shortfall in labour charge.

SOURCE: heater blows cold air in my escort van

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.

SOURCE: escort van 55 blower heater does not blow at all

I had this problem on my '98 Ford Escort ZX2.
It did not need a new blower but a $15 Blower Motor Resistor.  The wires and connectors rusted out.

When i drive my car there is a very loud klanking sound coming from my rear end it starts at about 20 miles mph and gets worse as i speed up, what could be the problem?


It could be a number of items.

1. The rear suspension components.
The noise may be emanating from a failed shock absorber.
There could also be a number of failed rubber bushes in one or more rear suspension components that is allowing metal to metal contact.

2. If an exhaust hangar on the exhaust system has broken the exhaust system will swing and bang against the underside of the vehicle.

You need to get the car on a hoist with the rear wheels removed to inspect all items and identify the likely source of the noise.

Driving over bumps or on a rough road rattleing sounds from outside almost like a chain rattle


Hi, your exhaust system is loose. Take your vehicle to a local exhaust repair shop and have them inspect your exhaust. Most cars/vans today use rubber "hangers" to suspend the exhaust from the frame of the vehicle. Over time these "hangers" corrode and break. If it is just a bad hanger, your in luck, they only cost between $5-$10 each.
