alright, so i know there are many things wrong with my escort, but hey, i spent 80 bucks on it, and my families known all of the owners ..... anyway, when i shift it into first gear, it sort of squeeks, almost like a chirp, and it also does it going into third sometimes, its been wanting new shift linkage bushings since my brother drove it, maybe 2 years ago, and im not sure whats causing the squeek, should i do bushings immediatly?
thank you for your help!

Does it happen when you let the clutch out, push it in, or just when moving the shifter?

only when i move the shifter ........ it worries me cus i dont know exactly whats going on, and i dont know the seriousness of it, also, ive noticed that something sounds like its like klanking and rolling, sort of metal on metal sounding when i take my foot off the gas in third but it only makes that noise for like 2 seconds before it stops

hard to say without inspecting it.

are there any shops/dealers in your area that do free courtesy inspections that you can trust?

you could let them find out what it is with just a visual inspection and then opt to have them fix some things or do it yourself.
