1999 Ford Escort QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My clutch pedal has to go very close to the floor to shift
Manual transmission...Number 2 cylinder isn't firing. Timing belt was replaced prior to the problem with the #2 cylinder. It idles horribly and dies if foot isn't on gas. It happens everytime I drive it. Doesn't run very fast even with gas petal to the floor.
It improved once when I cleaned the engine....it ran fine for 15 minutes but that's it. The other two times were random and lasted for about 5 minutes.
Transmission started refusing to shift into High gear most of the time and it blew 2 quarts fluid out under the hood, but yesterday it shifted into high
My transmission suddenly started refusing to go into high gear. Automatic. When I stopped, it had lost 2 quarts of fluid, blown out under the hood, no leaks visible. The check engine light is always on since I bought it 4 months ago. 197,000 miles.
With a quick drive, dealer said tranny was shot. Should it be checked for something else before buying a new transmission? I have read about stopped up filters, etc. When it is supposed to shift to high gear, the engine rpm just revs, but it doesn't shift. This has all happened within a week. The fluid was clear before the loss of fluid, and full.
How do you fix the leak from the sael connecting transmission to the engine and what exactly would be wrong?
This car is my dad's and he asked me to look into the problem. He said he's changed the "brain," so that shouldn't be the problem. His son drove it to work a few weeks ago, but when he got home and parked the car wouldn't start again and hasn't started since. Thank you for any help you can provide.

Do I need to change the entire strut component or can I just change the shock component
then rev it also now the transmission is acting like its going out but not its really herky jerky but only at slow speeds I almost think it could be electrical
