We know that high standards of quality and care can make the best auto repair shops stand out from the rest. You can trust your 1997 Ford Escort to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We’re experts in top-to-bottom repair services like tire and alignment repairs, brake work, and even engine and drivetrain services. Read on to learn about each service.

Brake repair is one of the most important repairs you can invest in for one very simple reason: you rely on your brakes to safely bring your vehicle to a stop. 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. Driving habits and climate can also affect when you might need brake repair.

Much like brake problems, you don’t want to ignore issues with your tires. Safe vehicle operation is practically impossible without four well-maintained and reliable tires. If you have a flat tire on your 1997 Ford Escort, we can change it for you. In some cases, our technicians may be able to perform a simple patch and plug repair on your Ford Escort tire. Tread-area punctures less than ¼ inch in diameter can often be repaired. If the type of tire damage won’t allow for a safe repair, 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.

At your local Firestone Complete Auto Care, we can also take care of your 1997  Ford Escort engine, drivetrain, and transmission repairs. 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 this happens, you may hear engine knocking noises, feel a delay in transmission shifting, or even smell a burning odor from under your Escort’s hood. With these symptoms, it’s best to bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care to diagnose the problem. In these cases, the repair could range from something minor, like a new spark plug, to a more significant repair, like a fuel pump fix.

How Much Does Ford Escort Repair Cost?

A few different aspects can influence repair costs for your 1997 Ford Escort, like which repairs are needed, prices of appropriate replacement parts, the amount of labor necessary to get the job done, and your locale. Labor costs and tax rates can be pretty different from state to state. They're updated regularly!

We know that getting affordable Ford Escort repairs is important to you. We understand, too, that you don’t want just anyone doing repair work on your Ford. You want the right person, because a tool is only as good as the hands behind it. When you bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, your car is in the capable hands of a trained technician. Our technicians know how to repair common 1997 Ford Escort problems, and we stand by our work with our one-of-a-kind Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.
