When the crankshaft gets worn out, the engine will make lots of very loud knocking and or squealing noises. The engine may also lock up tight and not turn over. Damaged crankshafts are usually the result of not changing the oil often enough or not having enough oil in the engine. Crankshafts just dont wear out on their own.

If the timing belt was broken, obviously the engine would not run. If you crank the engine and the distributor does not turn, that would be a good sign.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TURN THE ENGINE OVER IF YOU SUSPECT A BROKEN TIMING BELT !!!!!! If you have, you already have more problems than a broken timing belt. Remove the upper timing belt cover and physically look at the timing belt.

Anyplace that sells batteries can tell you the correct size you need.

One way would be to take the VIN number to a Ford dealer, they would be able to tell.
