This is an interference engine. In most cases the head as well and the pistons will be damaged.
According to Gates ( they manufacture timing belts etc. ) No , it is not an interference engine
No, this is an interference engine. You will have severe engine damage if the belt breaks.
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
The 1999 Ford Ranger 3.0L V6 engine has a no-interference design. This means that?æ there is enough clearance between the piston and the valves. Therefore, when the timing belt fails, no damage will occur to the engine.
The timing belt is located behind the timing belt cover on the front of the engine. To get the cover off the top front motor mount must be removed to gain enough clearance to get it out.
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.
A broken timing belt on a Ford ZX2 will not damage the engine. The 2.0 ZETEC engine used in the ZX2 is a non-interference engine which means the pistons will not come into contact with the valves should the belt break. Because of this the valves will not be damaged and no engine damage will occur.
Yes. It is a non interference engine. It will not suffer valve damage if the timing belt breaks.
If this is the European Escort This engine is classed as an interference engine. In the event of belt failiure the valves meet the pistons causing the valves to bend and possibly other engine damage.
If you're concerned a out bent valves after the timing belt snaps at speed the answer is yes it does have a clearance engine and you should have no trouble replacing the timing belt and continuing on your way.. I mean other then the lack of space to work to replace the belt its a straight forward fix...
According to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) (Yes ) both the DOHC and SOHC 2.0 liter four cylinder engines in a 1999 Ford Escort ( ARE INTERFERENCE ENGINES )
The timing chain for a 1993 Ford escort is located on the front of the engine. It is under the timing chain cover.
No the engine will not be damaged. It happened to me, when i asked the mechanic why it didn't damage the engine he said it was because of the way Ford designed the engine.
Well I really have no idea what a ldv is, but if your timing belt breaks and your engine is an interference engine there will be damage. If it is not an interference engine there will be no damage.
Yes. The Zetec dohc engine is a " free wheeling" engine. No damage will result from timing belt breakage. Just replace belt and your good. That should be done by someone familiar with setting up timing.
If the timing belt on a 1.6 Astra breaks, it can damage the engine. It is more likely to damage the engine if it is a timing chain, though. A timing chain is made of metal and a timing belt is made of a heavy duty rubber.
The timing belt is located inside the timing belt cover at the fron of the engine.
If the timing belt breaks the engine will just stop.No other damage will happen,there is clearance between the valves and the pistons.This happened to me. And I just rebuilt my 93 Geo convertible it had over 255,000 mi. It is a great little engine
Yes, this is an interference engine. The belt must be replaced every 60,000 miles. If the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur.
if it becomes misaligned, then yes it has the potential to do damage.
It can. If one of the valves was in the combustion chamber at the time and the piston came up, it could damage the valve train and the top of the piston.
I know of no 1997 Ford Escort equipped with a 1.4 L engine sold in the U.S. The 1997 Ford Escort with a timing chain is the 2.0 L engine. All 1997 Ford Escorts 2.0 L sold in the U.S. are non-interferance engines. No engine damage occurs when the belt breaks. If you have a 1.4 L Ford Escort, I suggest you cantact your local Ford dealer.
yes this is an interference engine damage to valves will occur if the timing belt breaks and the engine is turned
Chances are, Yes. They're running a no-clearance engine which means that if the timing gets screwed up too much, The pistons will smash into valves and essentially screw all of the assembly up.
Yes...Well it is an interference engine, not zero clearance. Which means when the timing belt breaks the pistons with "interfere" with the valves.
