If it is a 1.9,, then you point the arrow on the cam pulley up, at the dot on the head, and the crank pulley notch up, at the matching notch above it, and put on the belt. The tensioner is a bit of a hassle.

Where are timing marks for 2.0engineon a ford escort?

I am not familiar with this engine in particular but most engines have the timing marks stamped into the block with a corresponding dot or arrow on the crankshaft damper which tells you where top dead center (TDC) is. After aligning these timing marks you would look at the camshaft sprocket(s). If it is a single overhead cam (SOHC) there will be markings similar to those for the crankshaft, one on the cylinder head and another on the camshaft sprocket. Or, if it is a dual overhead cam (DOHC) there is typically one arrow on each of the camshaft sprockets that you align to be pointing at one another.

What causes the engine on a 1988 Ford Escort 1.6 diesel to lock up when turned by hand after you have done everything the manual says when putting on a timing belt?

It is just a guess, but I wonder if you have either the crankshaft or camshaft 180 degrees off. A piston is hitting a valve. There shouldn't be anything in the process of a timing belt to cause this.

How do you change timing belt in a 2000 ford escort?

You have to take the accessory belt (serpentine) off, then take the left motor mount off while supporting the bottom of the engine. Take the timing cover off and then release the tensioner on the belt to take it off. You line up the timing marks at the crankshaft and the camshaft, put the belt on. Tighten the tensioner, then rotate the crankshaft on the engine at least 2 full turns, then check the timing marks to see if they are still lined up.

What special tools are needed to replace a timing belt on a 2000 ford escort ZX2?

camshaft timing peg and a crankshaft alignment tool... I'm half way through doing mine and realizing you need to take the camshaft pulley off to get to the bottom gear for the timing belt, I'm still stuck on how to get it off, it says to use a strap wrench so I'm guessing for to hold the pulley while you remove the bolt... anyone ever acomplished this?

Where can you find the timinig marks on a 1998 Ford Escort?

There are no timing marks. The ignition timing is controlled by the ECU. There is a ring behind the crankshaft pulley that has one tooth missing. When that missed tooth goes past the Crankshaft Positon Sensor it creates an electrical pulse. This is sent to the Power Contol Module which determines the timing. Timing can't be set.

How do you use a timing gun on a 1998 ford escort?

You plug the gun into the no. 1 cylinder on the coil pack. Start the car and aim it at the crankshaft pully. You won't be able to tell if it is in time or not because there is no mark on the crank pulley. Since the 98 ford escort has it's timing automatically adjusted by the computer there is no way or need to set it.

Does a 4.9 liter straight 6 have a timing chain?

No , the Ford 4.9 liter / 300 cubic inch straight six cylinder engine has a gear on the end of the crankshaft that meshes with a gear on the end of the camshaft , so it does not use a timing chain or timing belt
