Best Answer

The only way the answer below could be more wrong is if he told you that you needed rocks to set the timing and to remove the bolts with a cutting torch. I'm not sure where he got his information, but I had to leave this answer up so that everyone else that knows anything about a ZX2 can get a good laugh. Anyway, I put a link in the 'related links' section that shows exactly how to set the timing on the ZX2. The ZX2 does not have a timing belt driven water pump and is not a 'V-tech' engine as he stated. It is a serpentine driven water pump and is a 'Zetec' engine.

----------------------------------------

An Escort water pump is located under the timing cover and is driven by the timing belt. Jack up the right front corner of the vehicle, remove the following: RF wheel, front motor mount, serpentine belt, belt tensioner crankshaft pulley, timing cover, and timing belt, to gain access to and replace the water pump. It is recommennded that you install a new timing belt when you replace the water pump.

2001 ZX2 is equipped with AA 2.0L DOHC V-Tech engine. The water pump is on the front (rt side of car) of the engine block, visible with the hood up. NAPA autoparts replacement instructions are to loosen the belt drive pulley from the pump BEFORE removing the serpentine belt. Once the four bolts are loosde, take the belt off (good time to replace?) remove bolts and old water pump (four more bolts)- it will be tight, but it comes out- clean gasaket area and install new gaaket and pump in reverse order. That includes putting the pulley on and hand tightening the bolts, put on the belt, finish tightening the bolts to the pulley. Don't forget the antifreeze..
