Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Before i changed my trans. fluid my car would not take 3rd and 4th gear the RPMs would go crazy and my speedometer wouldnt match with the rpms then when i changed my trans. fluid i crunk it up let it run and tried to drive it down the road but it wouldnt move or take any gear. i need help really bad!
Sounds like you have really screwed the pooch here. What I suspect you did was put the wrong transmission fluid in when you replaced the fluid. If you did use the right fluid, then I would suspect that there is not enough fluid in the transmission to make it work. Check if you used the right fluid and also check your trans fluid level.

THE GEAR LINKAGE WILL HAVE JUMPED OUT OF ALIGNMENT, ITS A 10mm af spanner to fix it you should see where it was originally placed by the marks on the selector rod linkage.it needs two person job one under the car with the spanner and one positioning the gear lever.

typical problem is the pump shaft and gear in the transmission,i cant remember if it can be changed with the transmission in it,its behind the pan on the drivers side,i pulled a transmission out of a 95 escort to fix the same problem a few years ago that had 150,000 miles on it and it drove to California and back with no problem
