first we need know if its the sohc or the dohc engine..
get the pullys lined up at the timing marks
timing marks on 2002 Mazda millennium 2.5 dohc
show me the timing marks 2004 pontiac 2.2 dohc
the ford escort zx2 2.0 dohc don't have one it's equipped with vct(variable valve timing) to replace it
left one is exhaust and right one intake, set to the cam timing marks, do not forget the crankshaft timing marks too, there are 2 of them also.
www.kiatechinfo.com Free website, has diagrams and repair info.
put cams dot to dot
I need diagrams for both the timing marks and timing diagram for 1999 Ford Taurus 3.0 Vin S DOHC
get a service manuel ..... the water pump is behind and run by the timing belt .... if you are not experianced at setting up the timing marks on a DOHC motor get help or take it to someone who is .........
According to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etc. ) both the SOHC and DOHC engines in a 1999 Ford Escort ARE INTERFERENCE ENGINES
For a 2003 Ford Escort ZX2 : The 2.0 litre DOHC four cylinder engine has a ( timing BELT ) According to the scheduled maintenance guide ( replace at 120,000 miles )
No , according to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) the 2.0 liter ( SOHC and DOHC ) engines that are used in a 1999 Ford Escort are NOT INTERFERENCE ENGINES
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 2.0 Liter DOHC with VIN # 3 has a timing belt and requires replacement at 120,000 miles. This is not an interference engine.
I was looking at the 1999 Ford Escort scheduled maintenance guide and the Gates website ( they make timing belts etc . ) and both show to inspect the timing belt at 120,000 miles , replace if necessary ( that applies to both the 2.0 liter SOHC and DOHC engines )
When you say 'Timing Marks', there are several places on this engine that has various marks in regards to the Harmonic Balance, Camshaft sprockets, crankshaft, and timing cover. If you are checking the timing, you will use the marks on the timing cover. If you are setting or replacing the timing belt, you will want to use the camshaft sprockets in relation to the crankshaft/harmonic Balance. On this year, the crankshaft key notch should be 12'oclock and the sprockets should have the timing marks 'E' for exhaust and 'I' for intake aligned facing with the 'E' at 3'oclock and the 'I' at 9'oclock. Hope this helps. AJ
First just let me clarify it is not a DOHC it is an SOHC. The timing marks are to be found on the Harmonic Balancer Cam Gear & Acc' Housing gear (Oil/Fuel pump) All three need to be in sink to get her to run. I would highly recommend a copy of the factory service manual. Best of luck!
I am not familiar with this engine in particular but most engines have the timing marks stamped into the block with a corresponding dot or arrow on the crankshaft damper which tells you where top dead center (TDC) is. After aligning these timing marks you would look at the camshaft sprocket(s). If it is a single overhead cam (SOHC) there will be markings similar to those for the crankshaft, one on the cylinder head and another on the camshaft sprocket. Or, if it is a dual overhead cam (DOHC) there is typically one arrow on each of the camshaft sprockets that you align to be pointing at one another.
According to the 1999 Ford Escort Scheduled Maintenance Guide : For the 2.0 liter SOHC and DOHC engines : ( INSPECT at 120,000 miles ) The Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) shows : ( INSPECT at 120,000 miles / REPLACE if necessary ) * the Gates website also shows that both the 2.0 liter DOHC and SOHC four cylinder engines in a 1999 Ford Escort are ( INTERFERENCE ENGINES )
To adjust the timing take off the timing cover,take off belt and then line up the marks on the timing gear.You will need a special tool to hold the gears if it is a DOHC(duel over head cam)
According to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) The 2.0 liter Dual Over Head Cam ( and the SOHC ) engines in a 1998 Ford Escort ARE INTERFERENCE ENGINES
There is no timing belt on a 3.0 DOHC. There are two timing chains which are inside the engine under the timing cover.
A Ford with a 2.0L 4 cylinder SOHC engine is NOT an interference engine
