20 Most Recent 1994 Ford Escort Questions & Answers

Depends on what you are trying to do and the model you are doing it to.

I have worked on a few ******* around that vintage but I don't remember any particular problems removing the front subframe. All ******* of each age share the same basic construction and layout but details differ depending on model, making a repair manual desirable though not necessary. I found most tasks fairly intuitive.

I suggest you take another look, using a strong light and a mirror if necessary.

I assume this is a manual tranny? In most there are centering springs that help you go from gear to gear and find neutral without a problem. I've seen them broken or just weakened but considering they are buried inside the transmission housing, you might want to just live with it until the time for synchros or other work is needed.
Novice? Heck, most of us started as novices but some decent tools, an after-market service manual from Chilton or Haynes, knuckles that don't bleed easy, an anal attitude toward cleanliness relative to the innards of machinery, and a few choice words not meant for childrens' ears, will make you a practiced shade-tree mechanic. (Maybe starting with 'magictouch' will help too ;-)  )

Did you replace the right upper motor mount?

Boot solenoid needs checking, the unit is usually found in the boot lid . It may have become unplugged or the wiring could have broken or worn through. Check the wiring where it should be taped securely to the boot hinges. If you put a meter across on resistance and get a zero reading then the solenoid has failed and needs replacing.

Start with checking the brake light switch.
follow the brake pedal up the metal arm until you see a little switch pressed against the metal arm.
When the brakes are pressed, the switch button extends and unlocks the shift lever and turns on the brake lights.
It is common for a little plastic piece to deteriorate and break away, causing the brake lights to stay on and can damage the shift lock solenoid.
Attached is a photo of the brake switch where it contacts the pedal arm.

There is a little snap cover beside the shifter. You can pry it open with a little flathead screwdriver and insert a thin object inside to release the shift lock and get out of gear until you find the fix.

Most times cleaning the inside of the throttle body clears this up. Check for vacuum leaks also.

The unit is in the side pan. The entire trans must be removed before the cover can be removed. There is no switch on this vehicle.
