How do you time a 1993 Ford Escort?

There is a timing mark on the crankshaft and one on the camshaft pulleys where the timing belt runs on. You have to align both of them and just put the timing belt on. If you are not familiar with the timing marks you can go to an auto parts and buy a service manual for your specific vehicle and it will show you all the information you need to know. At Auto Zone or Advance Auto Part locally they are under $20. Well worth the investment if you are going to do your own work. Unless you have taken the timing belt off or it has broken the timing should be right. This is the only way to adjust the timing.

Will you need a lift for 20 rims to fit a 1999 Ford Escort?

First off what you'll need is a new brain. After that, you'll need to find yourself a decent school loan and put yourself through college, get a decent job that makes you enough money where you wont be stuck with a 1999 Ford Escort as your only option for a vehicle. Believe me, a ford escort looks a lot better with regular or stock wheels on it, than any 20 inch wheels in the world. If you're wanting attention with 20" wheels, the only attention you'll get is negative attention, and you will look like a moron. 20" wheels belong on BMW's, Mercedes, and SUV's... your '99 Ford Escort probably has a retail value of about 800-1000 dollars. Never let your wheels be more valuable than your ride, holmes. and whatever you do to the car you drive in, always make sure it's classy. an Escort on 20's is just stupid.

When setting the timing on a 1998 ford escort 20 dohc how do you know if you have one of your cams 180deg off there is no timing marks and you know you use the straight bar to hold them in place?

It is impossible to get the cam 180 out if you use the right tool. The grooves are offset in the cams, so that it will be impossible to install the tool if the cam is 180 out, because the groove will be below the deck surface if it is not in the correct position.
