Timing Belts and Chains

Parent Category: Timing and Firing Orders
Timing belts and chains are used in an internal-combustion engine to synchronize the opening and closing of the engine’s valves. The belt also drives other components such as the pumps and alternator. The belt is made of fiberglass or Kevlar-reinforced rubber.
The timing belt is located behind the timing belt cover on the front of the engine. To get the cover off the top front motor mount must be removed to gain enough clearance to get it out.
The timing belt is located inside the timing belt cover at the fron of the engine.

If you mean timing chain and gears...Yes...they still install dot to dot. With the cam gear dot at 6 o'clock position and crank gear at 12 the engine is ready to fire on #6 cylinder. To bring it to #1 after installing the timing chain and gears, rotate the crank until they are both at the 12 o'clock...

Answer . According to the Owner's Manual, it should be changed at 90,000 miles. I am still trying to find out whether it is an interference or non-interference engine. If it is a non-interference engine, the timing belt breaking won't cause engine failure.
You can't. Theres is no distributer to adjust. The computer controls when, the best time, to send the spark. Answer by Tigercadd: The timing marks you will need are on the crank pulley, timing cover, and cam pulleys. The front exhaust cam is spring loaded and the timing procedure is...

If you have had the car from new and know its service history then 40,000 miles is the norm. But it may also depend on the engine type fitted, some don't need changing until you hit 70,000 miles. If you don't know the service history and the car has quite a high mileage, CHANGE IT! Far better to pay...

Your 2.4 liter - 4 cylinder - has a timing CHAIN
No it is a gear to gear timing system.
No, all Ford Escorts whether lx or zx2 are non-interference engines. Meaning that the valves won't go through the pistons if the timing belt breaks.
This is quest for a Manual. Local liberary/auto parts store
No, it will not damage the engine, it is not an interference engine. The valves have enough room for the cylinder to come up even if the valves are stuck in the lower position . I am repairing the timing belt myself and it's really not that hard . The first try getting the belt on there i got the...
I am going to assume you mean timing belt. The Fiero does not come with a belt If the chain fails, there is usually no internal damage other than the chain, but the engine must be removed to service, unless you like doing it the hard way.
Go to the parts store and get the belts then loosten the alternator, power steering pump and a/c compressor and remove the belts measuring them as they come off to see which belt goes where.

Only the 1999 Ford Taurus SHO has a timing belt. The engine is built by Yamaha and NO it is not an interference engine. Replace the belt at 100,000 miles. All other Ford Taurus's have timing chains.
The belt will wear out. If the engine is an Interference engine and the belt breaks you will have serious engine damage. if it is not an interference engine you will be stranded on the road and will pay a towing fee. Replace the belt as listed in the owner's manual.

The 2.5 liter V6 engine ( 60,000 miles ) The 4 cylinder engine ( 100,000 miles )
The normal assumption is that the race is local (say a local marathon), so: Between 1 o'clock and 3 o'clock is 2 hours and in that time the distance covered is 20-5 = 15 miles. So the average speed of the runner is 15 miles ÷ 2 hours = 7.5 mph. . ... that all depends upon when and where...

vectra b 2.0 dtl / dth, and the same for 2.2 do not require a timing belt change as they are chain driven , however the tensioner requires checking after 150,000
If you are still running the OEM belt,right now. Look in the maintenance schedule. For the 2004 V6 it is nine years or 90,000 miles. I is probably somewhat less for the 2000.
The price varies according to the section of the country you live in. Call a couple of local garages for quotes. GoodluckJoe I just replaced the water pump in my 1985 Grand Marquis for $45 from Federated. Be prepared for a decent amount of work. Good luck. Another I just checked, and a...
I am not sure what a "fan sannor" is. If you are talking about the sensor that controls the cooling fans, I believe it is threads into the lower radiator tank. Look for the wires.
