Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2

1 Answer

Refilling transmission fluid - manual 5-speed.

We have a 2001 Ford Escort ZX2 and my boyfriend drained the transmission fluid instead of the oil when trying to change the oil. It's a manual, so we need to know what type of fluid to refill it with, and also how/where to refill it. Diagrams or pictures would be very helpful. Thank you.

Dextron mercron 3, automatic transmission fluid. Mostly standard on fords and others for both auto and manual trans. Underneath the air intake pipe, at the rear right hand side there is a 4 prong plug for the speed sensor. Its electronic so there wont be any cable, its a round sensor with a horizontal plug on the end of it. Take a flat head screwdriver and pry the 2 holding prongs off the wiring harnes. then get a #10 socket 1/4in drive with exstinsions works best take out the bolt going right with the rachet. once you get it out just pull and twist the sensor out. It seems to be easier with a hose at the end of the funnel to pour the fluid in. stick the hose where the speed sensor was. once its full just assemble it back the way it was.

Transmission fluid


Manual transmissions take a heavier gear oil instead of transmission fluid which is mainly used in automatic transmissions. Go to any auto parts store, ask someone to help you select the right one.

Is a 2000 ford escort manual compatable with a 2001 ford escort zx2


All ZX2 transmissions will work no matter what year. If you are trying to use a sedan transmission, it is possible with some modification. The sedan transmission has one threaded hole for the starter that will need to be drilled out. There are, I think, three bolt holes for the bell housing that won't line up but that isn't a problem. Otherwise, it fits just fine. The gearing is taller in the sedan and you'll notice the car won't accelerate as fast but your gas mileage should get better.

HOW OFTEN WOULD YOU NEED A OIL CHANGE ON A ASTRA 1.8 PETROL,KEEP GETTING A KNOCKING SOUND FROM ENGINE WHEN WE PUT CLUTCH DOWN ANY IDEAS CHEERS


change oil every 3K-5K miles. Check your transmission fluid. if it is dark instead of bright ready you need to flush and fill the transmission. That could help with the knocking. If it only happens when the clutch is depressed then that leads me to believe you have a possible transmission problem brewing.

If it is a manual transmission you will have to removed the speed sensor from the transmission. Fluid should be at or near the top of the gear on the sensor.

Manual Transmission fluid for Ford Escort ZX2


I know this sounds crazy according to Ford:

You can use-
Motorcraft MERCON Multi-Purpose (ATF) Transmission Fluid XT-2-QDX MERCON® Alternative Transaxle Fluid - SAE 75W90 Gear Oil F32Z-19C547-MA API GL-4
You are seeing that right, one instance they call for 75W90 and the other it is ATF. It is ok to run either, 75W90 will give you smoother shifts and less noise.

This transmission is filled through the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) hole.
