I was reading through the forums a while back and I remember someone said that they found a k&n filter that fit the 2nd gen 'scorts but was from a van. Can someone help me out and point me to the link?
In my area they did not list one for the LX Escort at any of the stores I went to. If they have the listed one for the LX get it. If not, one from a '99 or same bodystyle Dodge Caravan will fit (1996 to 2002 I think). You'll need one for the 3.0L engine out of the Caravan. It's just a tad narrow than stock paper element for the Escort, but it fits. You just have to be careful not to knock it in when you put the cover back on. To be accurate, johnscort on ERDT has the actual LX K&N filter in his car. PM him and ask him what the K&N part number is. I have the '99 Caravan filter in my car with no probs :wink:
