Broken timing belt

I have 1991 ford escort pony which had run out of gas but after adding gas and replacing the fuel filter I discovered the timing belt was broken. I was wondering how difficult is it to replace the timing belt on my 91 ford escort?

Its better to get a mechanic to do it then do it your self, if you do it yoursel u will have many more problems for the incorrect timing. find a low cost effective dealer and you will find that cheaper and quicker then doing it yourself.

Car stopped running changed spark plugs wires friend came by with a tester said fuel pump out changed getting lots of gas BUT STILL WONT RUN ROLLS OVER


Well, if it has spark, and fuel, then it is missing compression. Check the timing belt, it is probably broken.

First check to see if you are getting fuel.If no fuel in the carburator the replace fuel filter.If still no fuel replace the fuel pump.You can put a little bit of gas,about a table spoon fuel in the carb.if it runs then replace the fore mentioned.

Timing Belt Replacement+Diagram


No it will NOT bend valves on this particular engine, if it goes out of time. I would replace BOTH the timing belt and the drive belt at the same time, since both are very inexpensive, even from the Ford dealer. Line up both timing marks on both the cam and crank sprockets in the 12 o'clock position. The marks are very easy to see, once you remove the timing belt cover. Hope this helps.
