Im replacing the timing belt on a 1995 Ford Escort 1.9L. How do I Set the timing on it?

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

Modern vehicles have their timing set by the PCM (computer), there is no adjustment.

It's controlled by the computer.

There are no timing marks. The timing is controlled by the PCM. Power control module. It is not possible to set the timing with a timing gun.

Follow the link below (related links) for a how-to.

you can't, it's all controlled electronically in the computer

May be computer controlled and not adjustable

It has no timing marks because the ignition timing is set by the computer and isn't adjustable.

you don't the computer sets it from the crank sensor

There is no provision for setting the ignition timing. The timing is set by the computer by way of engine sensors sending signals to it by such things as temperature, load, speed, and intake air.

If you mean ignition timing it will be 10 degrees BTC.

if the 99 ford escort is the 4-door version, the timing is set when installing the timing belt/set. Setting the timing is as simple as lining up the timing marks on the cam gear and the crank if the 99 ford escort is the 2-door version, the timing is also set when installing a new timing belt/set. The procedure for setting the timing on this engine requires locating top dead center (TDC) on cylinder number one and using a piece of flat steel to align the cams. Note: there are two different methods because Ford used different engines in the 2-door and the 4-door. The 2-door had a DOHC 2.0 installed while the 4-door had a SOHC installed

The timing on the 1.9L escorts are controlled by the onboard computer and CANNOT be adjusted.

i do mine at 15 thou and set timing at 12degrees BTDC

Computer controlled - not adjustable

The car has electornic ignition. There are no points. The timing is a coil packand set for life.

Go to in the knowledge base section there is a timing how to that will help...

In addition to the previous person not knowing how to spell correctly, his procedure for timing the 1998 ford escort is incorrect. The 2.0 found in the escort and the escort ZX2 does not have a distributor. Instead it uses a coil pack. To time the 2.0 engine found in the escort it is a matter of lining up a timing mark on the cam pulley and setting the crank at top dead center (TDC). On the escort ZX2 the timing is set by locating TDC on the crank and aligning the slots on the end of the intake and exhaust cams.

how do you set or check the timing on a 99 ford expedition?

There is no provision for setting the timing. It is controlled by the computer according to engine load, temperature, intake charge and mass air flow.

Probably computer controlled and not adjustable

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.
