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.

They are on the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets

There's no way to set timing. Just align marks on camshaft and crankshaft during belt installation. There may be another problem if your car is still running rough.

The Crankshaft Position Sensor senses it's position from a toothed timing ring behind the Crankshaft pulley. The CKP is above and to the left of the crankshaft pulley.

you cannot fix the timing on your tbird as it is electronically controlled and does not have a distrubutor. have your camshaft or crankshaft sensors checked

how do i set the timing on a 1995 ford escort LX??

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.

The timing chain for a 1993 Ford escort is located on the front of the engine. It is under the timing chain cover.

As far as I know the Ford 4.9 L ( 300 cubic inch ) straight 6 cylinder doesn't have a timing chain or timing belt , it has gears on the camshaft and crankshaft that mesh

a92 ford exp. has no camshaft pos. sencor. it has a crankshaft pos. censor.

The cover on the passenger side of the motor has long lines on it, those are your timing marks. Hold the timing gun above them and look directly down to the crankshaft pully.

The camshaft position sensor on a 2001 Ford Escort is located on the passenger side of the motor. It is right on top of the motor to the left of the valve cover.

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.

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.

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?

The 4.9 liter / 300 cubic inch straight 6 cylinder engine has gears on the end of the camshaft and crankshaft that mesh ( no timing chain or timing belt )

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.

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

User Avatar

There is no suck thing as a timing sensor. The timing marks for a escort are not on the cams you must use a straight edge.

User Avatar

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
