I have a 1990 escort lx so there shouldn't be any difference. If you look at the crankshaft or (dampner) pulley you should see a small groove in the front edge which almost looks like it's been notched with a hack saw. This mark should line up with the top dead center marking on the timing belt cover .then you need to set the camshaft marker which is a small point inside on of the holes on the camshaft timimg pulley. This point needs to line up with a small dimple or what looks like a punch marked on the head behind the pulley. Once these two marks are positioned correctly you should be ready to install the timimg belt. but be sure to check that your distributor rotor is set on the #1 position if not you will have to remove your distributor and rotate it a half turn and reinstall it.

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.

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.

Ford Escorts from 91 to present don't have timing marks because the timing is controlled by the engine computer.

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

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 timing marks for your 3.0 liter V-6 Ford Taurus can be found on the main pulley. The timing marks can also be found on the flywheel.

Ignition timing is not adjustable. Cam timing is adjustable by the "guess" method unless you are replacing the timing belt and using the timing marks on the belt drive cogs, in which case you need a repair manual that has detailed instructions.

To line up the timing belt marks for a 97 Ford Escort, the cam and crank sprockets should both be oriented with the timing mark on each sprocket in the 12 o'clock position. The tension should not be released on the belt. Once tension is applied to the belt, that should bring the cam slightly rearward to the position where it's supposed to be. Then check the timing by turning the engine clockwise for two turns.
