If the timing belt breaks, the valves get bent immediately.
Yes, valves can bend.
The Ford Motor Company made the Ford Escort zx2 2.0 motor, a "non interferance engine" meaning when the timing belt breaks, it will NOT damage your engine components. -Antwon00
No , according to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) the 1.9 liter four cylinder engine in a 1993 Ford Escort ( IS NOT AN INTERFERENCE ENGINE )
I believe the answer is no. I have a 1994 Escort LX with the 1.9 liter engine. I broke the timing belt, and there was no damage to the engine. Yes, it is no. I had the same experience last night and nothing happened to the engine. I have a 94 Escort LX with 1.9L engine too.
No, it is interference. Valves can bend if the timing belt breaks.No, it is interference. Valves can bend if the timing belt breaks.
There shouldn't be any damage to the motor. Older ones would bend the valves in the head, but that would be 1986 and earlier 1.8L. New timing belt, and should be alright.
Will anything happen to the motor if timing belt breaks on a 2001 ford ranger
I have a 1996 ford escort that will not start and it has a new starter on it and a new battery in it but it still will not start
how to install a timing belt of aford scort 1995 1.9 motor?
According to Gates ( they make timing belts etc. ) the 1.8 L and 1.9 L engines in a 1992 Ford Escort are NOT interference engines , so apparently no
The valves can be bent when the timing belt breaks.
It has no timing marks because the ignition timing is set by the computer and isn't adjustable.
No Not on the quest version of this motor.
no, it will spin free if the timing belt breaks
timing chain. the timing chain is ment to last as long as the motor does . does not require replacement unless it breaks and if it does i hope its not a interfearence motor
No it still turns motor over
I would say almost all 4 cylinder engines (especially older models) are interference type, meaning if you timing belt goes bad, your valves go bad too.
No it doesn't have an interference motor. This means if the timng belt breaks the valves won't go through the pistons.
yes if you neglect the timing belt its interference motor will bend up all the valves when it breaks only designed to go 60.000 miles they wont warranty it either
how do you align the crank pulley in reference to the cam pulley on a 2002 escort?
if it becomes misaligned, then yes it has the potential to do damage.
