The fuel filter is located on the drivers side of the firewall underneath the brake master cylinder. It is easiest to get to it from underneath the car.

Does the fuel filter on a 1998 Ford Escort ever need replacing? The owner's service manual doesn't require it.

The fuel filter does need to be changed, approximately every 30,000 miles / 24 months, whichever comes first.

1998 ford escort SE sometimes like it dosen't want to move, has enough fulid, the most of the time its ok. every tells me the transmissiom is on its way out. Please let me know your advise.

If it slipping in just certain gears i would say the bands are bad but usally it in older cars the torqu converters go out from moisture and stress. if the torque converter is going out it will act like you have to give it alought of throttle to get little to no movement but ones moving will drive just will seem to slip all the time till it goes out.

Where to find the auto transmission fluid drain plug on a 1997 ford escort?

Hi, there is no drain plug. You must remove the pan to drain the fluid unless you want to sure a pump through the dipstick pipe. You should probably take the pan off anyway to check for metal shavings and to replace the filter. The filter usually comes with a new pan gasket. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

hate to say it but your mechanic needs a review, the codes should have been checked before any work was carried out. most mechanics these days have code readers and don't charge just to have a look, shop around.
