It’s no secret that properly functioning brakes are an integral part of staying safe in your vehicle. Ford Escort brake problems can put you at risk on the road. Pulsing in the brake pedal, increased stopping distance, brake noise, or an illuminated dashboard brake light should all be cause for concern. No matter what shape your Ford Escort is in, it will likely need brake repair at some point – and that’s totally normal! As your car ages, brake pads and other small parts will naturally wear out and need to be replaced. Climate and driving style can also accelerate the repair timeline.

Tire problems are another one you don't want to let linger. Safe vehicle operation is practically impossible without four well-maintained and reliable tires. We can easily swap out a flat tire on your 1996 Ford Escort, or if the damage isn’t severe, repair a Ford Escort tire with the appropriate plug and patch. More often than not, punctures in the tread area that are less than ¼ inch in diameter can be successfully repaired. If your tire can't be safely repaired, a technician can answer any questions you have when choosing a tire replacement that suits your vehicle and your budget. Tire damage can have a ripple effect on other parts of your car, so we might suggest an alignment or tire balancing service following a tire repair or replacement.

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care is a one-stop shop for 1996 Ford Escort drivetrain, engine, and transmission repair services, too. All of these systems contain hundreds of parts that work together to generate heat and energy to propel your car to move. Over time, all those constantly moving components can get worn down. If you notice delays when shifting gears, knocking noise from your engine, or a burning smell under the hood, this could indicate a problem with one of these vital systems in your Escort. When something feels off with your vehicle, head to Firestone Complete Auto Care. This could be a simple fix like a new spark plug, or you may need repairs to your fuel pump.
