Escort Van? Never saw one. Best thing to do is get on www.partsamerica.com and type in your vehicle info. Choose the clutch section and you will see cable or hydraulic. I've never seen it with both listed.

No your escort has a clutch cable, it is on the year change point between shapes but if it is the older shape then you have what is called a ratchet and pawl mechinism for self adjustment of the cable, these are however prone to failure and not the easiest job to change. If you have a later shape escort then your clutch cable is adjust by means of a 6mm allen head type screw on the clutch pedal.
if its a cable clutch,could be its stretched and you can adjust it.if its a hydraulic type it warns you when it starts to slip to replace it asap.would you believe ford do use both,depends on the factory where it was built.
Hi! There may be a possibility the cable has snapped, however Ford used a ratchet and pawl set up on the Escort which is made of plastic! when it reaches its full tension (Self Adjusting) it can break leaving you with a baggy soppy floppy clutch pedal. So a clutch replacement is NOT required! If the cable has broken you should be able to see from under the Bonnet/hood as it is situated on top of the gearbox Bell housing. Again a Clutch is NOT needed. Hope this sorts it? Press the Blue Button please to appraise my FREE! Effort. Thank You! Paul 'W' U.K.
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.
Same symptoms on my espace, but the cause was first cable adjustment
(easy, but get your local garage to do it if you are not confident),
then subsequently a bent clutch pedal. The design of these components
is so BAD that you are likely to encounter deformation in the pedal or
the pedal box before the clutch itself fails. These problems can be
solved by a good garage, and still probably cheaper than prematurely
replacing the clutch.
