It may either be the PCV Valve or a vacuum hose leak. My problem was the vacuum hose. You will have to know if you have a 1.8 or a 1.9 engine when you order the PCV valve. It is a really cheap part ($2 or so).

It depends on what is wrong with the clutch. Is it slipping, juddering or making gear selection difficult?
Not all Ford Escorts have self-adjusting clutches; some are manually adjusted and need attention from time-to-time and proper engagement can be prevented if the pedal has risen too high.
Even the automatic adjuster can cause problems sometimes as can the clutch cable.
Before starting the big job of dismantling the suspension and removing the gearbox it is as well to check what can be checked and be sure lots of work is really needed.
hi from the uk from the symptoms you describe ? there is a judder as you take up drive in 1st gear ? may i suggest that this fault is not uncommon on this model and the fault is the engine mounting that is the one at the front of engine directly behind the radiator as you stand at front of car this mounting has a metallastic rubber which has probably parted from the metal fixing plate this results in the engine tilts back and lifts as you take up drive in 1st gear from standstill ? but once moving all other gearchanges seem ok ?? you can check mounting by slightly raising the engine at rear with a jack you will see mounting part from rubber this mounting is easy diy and the mount costs £15 approx here in uk and takes 1/2 hour to replace have done many of these in past if you req instruction on best/easiest way to do job? by all means get in touch ? hope this helps/inspires you ? best wishes from n/west uk
Sounds like a weak battery,
have the battery tested, if it gives out a low voltage or other faulty behaviour the computer will not run right, making the guages mess up and the engine run badly.
Replace it if it is "weak" when tested.
should solve your problem!
