Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2
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.
