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
It has a timing belt
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.
Loosen the tensioner bolt, let the spring loaded tensioner contact the belt. Then tight the tensioner bolt.
The correct belt tension will be maintained by the belt tensioner. The tension is not adjustable on this car.
This car will use a timing belt.
You don't. The timing belt should have a spring loaded tensioner which pulls on the belt to adjust tension.

if the timing belt breaks then yes it will throw the timing off.
Use a 1/2 or 3/8 breaker bar to relieve tension on belt tensioner to remove and replace belt - the automatic belt tensioner is the only adjustment
Timing BELT ( 1.8 and 1.9 liter four cylinder engines )
It will cost approximately $500 to change the timing belt in your 2002 escort. The exact cost is dependent upon several factors.
On top of the engine there is a serpentine belt (5 grooves). The tension is autmatically set by the belt tensioner. It is an arm with a pulley on the end of it. The other end has a 3/8 inch connector for a ratchet. Put a ratchet on the end of it and pull it towards you. This should relieve the tension enough to take the belt off the pulleys.
Not clear as to what your referring to...exactly. Are you talking about the timing belt/camshaft belt ? Also, what Year is the escort ? -javman01 Yes
No, there are no guides and the timing is done with a belt, not a chain.
Yes. its on the timing belt and therfore difficult to change.
