Refer to the owners manual to determine how often the timing belt should be changed. Do not exceed that interval, since doing so can cause serious damage to the engine. Don't wait for the belt to be "bad", just change it when you hit the number of miles specified.

Do you mean a bad timing chain ? The 2.3 liter four cylinder engine in a 2005 Ford Escape has a timing CHAIN instead of a timing belt

the ZETEC engine used in the 1999 ZX2 is a non-interference engine. This means that the pistons will not contact the valves when the timing belt breaks. Because of this, the valves will not be bad if the timing belt breaks

When a timing belt is going bad it can make a high-pitched screeching sound. It can sound like a high-pitch whirring noise. Not all timing belts make a noise when they are worn or going bad.

A Saturn 3.0 timing belt noise can indicate that the belt is becoming worn down. It can also indicate a bad gear.

the timing belt can cause a water pump to go bad if the belt is on too tight, because that will put stress on the bearings making it wear out rather quickly.

The belt could be wearing but not show any problems. When the belt stretches the timing will jump and the engine will run rough. If the belt breaks then the engine wont run at all.

If you think it is going bad STOP DRIVING and get it changed immediately. If the timing belt/chain goes while you are motoring it will ruin the engine.

It has a timing belt. Make sure that you replace it ever 60,000 miles. If it snaps on you, that is bad news!

AnswerThe timing is controled by the sensors and the computer, it can't be adjusted.You can if the timing belt is stretched! Replace your timing belt and the hydraulic tensioner and it should repair the bad timing.

No start, no compression.
