Ford Escort ZX2

Can a code P1383 in a 99 ZX2 be for some reason other than incorrect timing?

I'm not sure what the person above is trying to say.

Camshaft Position Timing Over Retarded

This is almost always caused by a bad timing belt. It can also be caused by a bad camshaft sensor (usually sets a P0340 code so isn't likely), or improper oil weight. Anything over a 30 weight oil will cause VCT issues. Also, debris in the oil system will interfere with the VCT. The code can also be caused by a faulty VCT solenoid.

Incorrect timing can cause several problems. One of which is high idling. 5000 rpm sounds high though, there may be other problems as well.

These have a timing belt . They stretch out and yours is old . If you can not time it or it is mis firing for no other reason , then it is most likely bad .

the only timing marks are on the timing belt pulleys for installation of new timing belt other than that timing is not adjustable.

one mark is used for inductive timing with a special timing tool and the other is for a conventional timing light
