Hello and good day to you:
Your Starter for this Year Escort should be located As you are facing the engine from the front of the car. The starter is on the back side of the engine below the fuel intake assemblies.
You will need to Jack the car up to get to the starter motor lower bolt, and is accessible from beneath the vehicle....there are two..2..mounting bolts that are accessible from the top.
The Starter is a large cylinder type...it may look 1/2 Black, and 1/2 Silver. The Starter solenoid is a cylinder type...black in color...and will sit on top of the Starter.
The starting system is composed of a permanent magnet gear-reduction starter motor, solenoid, battery, ignition switch, manual lever position or clutch engage switch and connecting wires.
Vehicles equipped with an automatic transaxle have a manual lever position switch in the starter control circuit, which prevents operation of the starter unless the shift lever is in Neutral or Park. The circuit on vehicles with a manual transaxle prevents operation of the starter motor unless the clutch pedal is depressed.
Hope this Helps, and good luck....any further help please give us a yell.
