Question about Ford Escort
What is the differential and does it need flushed?
The differential is inside and part of the transaxle. A transaxle has both the transmission and the differential together as a single unit. On rear wheel drive cars, the differential would be in the rear end- the large center case on the rear axle. With front wheel drive, the differential is incorporated within the transaxle. It is used to keep the front drive wheels turning properly during steering turns.
The differential uses the same oil or fluid as in the transmission/transaxle case-it is all the same piece, not serviced or flushed separately from the transmission, or transaxle as front wheel drive cars are called.

Battery light is on and battery is not holding the charge because you have at lest one cell damaged
because of accidental short-circuits between the battery terminal. So most probably you need to get new one (in Sears starts from $49,99) For fuses location follow this link please

Hi Janabona To diagnose this problem I would need much more information from you. Firstly, has the problem gotton worse over a period of time or did the problem appear quickly - say after a particular fuel stop? Is the problem the same during cold, warm-up and normal engine temperture? Has the problem occurred immediately after a service or repair? With this additional information I'm confident that I can point you in the right direction in terms of the problem. Dave

See Figure 8

WARNING Do not use any abrasive grinding discs to remove gasket material. Use a plastic manual gasket scraper to remove the gasket residue. Be careful not to scratch or gouge the aluminum sealing surfaces when cleaning them.
