Best Answer

89 escort should have a Ford 1.9l overhead cam engine these timing belts have a tensioner/idler pulley that can be relieved using a special tool or 1/2 inch wrench/breaker bar

warning: if your timing belt broke while engine running its possible for a valve to contact a piston causing severe internal engine damage. cross your fingers!! get a haynes or chilton manual and set your camshaft to crankshaft timing

How do you line up timing belt marks for 97 ford escort?

To line up the timing belt marks for a 97 Ford Escort, the cam and crank sprockets should both be oriented with the timing mark on each sprocket in the 12 o'clock position. The tension should not be released on the belt. Once tension is applied to the belt, that should bring the cam slightly rearward to the position where it's supposed to be. Then check the timing by turning the engine clockwise for two turns.
