Welcome to AF!

You can get a Haynes repair book at most larger parts houses. Most libraries have the Chilton repair manuals. The Haynes book is very good. They are about $16.

If you want a repair manual you can buy a Haynes at most Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts stores for around $20. I'd also suggest checking out eBay, I've seen used ones sell on eBay for $5. or less before. Chilton's also makes a repair manual for '91-up Escorts, it's a little bit more expensive, but well worth the extra few dollars it costs. I've used both Chilton's and Hanyes, my preference is Chilton's, because they give more details and list more specifications.

Not necessarily the most convenient, but I think Ford themselves used to have downloadable owners manuals on one of their websites

Gave in to the experts along with a hefty price tag. Oh well it's hot

Use factory service manuals are often available cheaply on eBay. Ones on CD are even cheaper. Cheaper than a crappy new Haynes or Chilton manuals.

Get a CD on ebay. They are the best.

I have both the printed version and the version on CD, and I personally use the printed version much more, but one also needs to take into account that I'm an old fart.
