We really need to know which of the three possible engines you have, but here is a rough outline:

If you have a 1.9 or a 2.0 SPI engine (not a 2.0 ZETEc)Jack up the RF corner of the vehicle and remove the RF wheel. Remove the front motor mount located on the rightfender apron and support the engine by the oil pan using a floor jack with a block of wood(You will now be able to jackthe engine up and down as you need to). Remove the serpentine belt and if there is a belt tensioner in the way of the timing cover, remove it too. Remove the crankshaft pulley and remove the timing cover. Remove the old belt, and it is recommended that you replace the water pump at this time as well. Line up the crankshft timing mark(the keyway will be pointing straight up), and line up the camshaft timing mark(an arrow cut into one of thewindows of the gear lines up witha dot on the cylinder head). Install the new belt ad reaasemble in the reverse order as disassembly.

A 2.0 ZETEC engine requires special tools as there are no timing marks of woodruff keys for the camshafts.The valve cover has to come off, and a special alignment tool used to line up the cams.The crankshaft is lined up using a special tool inserted into the engine block through a holethat is exposed when a plug is removed.

It will cost approximately $500 to change the timing belt in your 2002 escort. The exact cost is dependent upon several factors.

Ignition timing is not adjustable. Cam timing is adjustable by the "guess" method unless you are replacing the timing belt and using the timing marks on the belt drive cogs, in which case you need a repair manual that has detailed instructions.

Where is the timing solenoid switch located on a 2000 ford escortIf you have an automatic transmission, the neutral safety switch is on the transmission. If its a manual (5 speed), It's under the clutch pedal at the floorboard.

There is no suck thing as a timing sensor. The timing marks for a escort are not on the cams you must use a straight edge.

No, there are no guides and the timing is done with a belt, not a chain.
