Will a 2001 escort 2.0 liter zetec engine work in a 1996 ford contour that has a 2.0 liter zetec engine and if so, what needs to be changed.
I have a 1996 Escort 1.9 Liter. I just took it in to have the trans fluid changed and after I picked it up I drove home about 4 miles from the shop with no problems. The next day I am going up a hill and it slips out of gear for about 3 seconds and the engine reves. After 3 seconds it went back into gear. I have never had ... Read More
i have a 1996 ford escort that just went out on me. When i was driving it, the highest speed was 40 then after awhile, it died on me...so i had it towed and now all it does is make a whining noise when i turn the key and doesn't try to start....any suggetions?

Can someone advise of a code reader that is available within ... Read More
I didn't like the 'passive' rear wheel steering that was built into the rear suspension of the 1991-1996? generation of Escorts. The rear end would step out at different times, and this is not a great thing in a front wheel drive car. Maybe I just wasn't used to it (and I had owned high powered rear wheel drive vehicles - 5.0 Mustang, etc.), but this led to me wrecking the ... Read More
I own a 1997 Ford Escort Wagon LX, which I purchased in 1996. It's my first wagon and I love it. Unfortunately, for a family of 4 (which includes two carseats) there isn't much elbow room, especially with talk of more children in the near future. We are looking into purchasing either a minivan or conversion van. So if anyone in Michigan wants to buy a great wagon please contact Sheri ... Read More
