Introduction to the Ford Escort and Mercury Tracer
The front-drive design features unitized construction and 4-wheel independent suspension. Models are available in 2-door, 4-door and station wagon body styles.
The transversely mounted four-cylinder engine drives the front wheels through a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transaxle by way of unequal length driveshafts. The rack-and-pinion steering gear is mounted behind the engine and is available with power assist. Brakes are discs at the front and drum-type at the rear with vacuum assist. Rear disc brakes are optional.
About this manual
The purpose of this manual is to help you get the best value from your vehicle. It can do so in several ways. It can help you decide what work must be done, even if you choose to have it done by a dealer service department or a repair shop; it provides information and procedures for routine maintenance and servicing; and it offers diagnostic and repair procedures to follow when trouble occurs.
We hope you use the manual to tackle the work yourself. For many simpler jobs, doing it yourself may be quicker than arranging an appointment to get the vehicle into a shop and making the trips to leave it and pick it up. More importantly, a lot of money can be saved by avoiding the expense the shop must pass on to you to cover its labor and overhead costs. An added benefit is the sense of satisfaction and accomplishment that you feel after doing the job yourself.
