Confirm that the timing mark on the crankshaft pulley aligns with the TDC mark on the front cover (arrows)

A sticker located on the timing cover identifies the timing marks and also shows the 0 degree mark on the crankshaft pulley

Replaced engine & battery, security system locked us out


sounds like the immobiliser, like you did,nt connect the immobiliser block,a cable with 3 wires,look carefully you may not have noticed & plugged it in. all the leads connected to the battery may not be correct. car thinks it,s being stolen.with fords you need to use the original key(red dot on it)to activate security settings,good luck leave key out of ignition,that may work

Someone tried breaking into our ford escort xr3i cabriolet and the drivers door lock has been broken. It opens from the inside, but we cannot unlock the car from the drivers door, nor open i he drivers...


remove door trim first,then with window up look on back of door lock and you will see u shaped piece of sprung steel that on the back of lock holding it too door skin ,big screwdriver and slide this backwards and door lock is loose .Unclip the plastic bits that sort of clip to the bars that operate the lock and open door .door lock will now drop out.Lock only type,if you have combined lock and handle then normally their are two 10mm headed bolts on inside of door same sort of procedure with the plastic clips but unbolt the handle .1992 doesnt have a factory immobiliser so best advice is big round steering lock over wheel,or a padlock and chain around seat support then on steering wheel .This will put most kids off but being an older car without the immobiliser its a prime target for a get you home car by a couple of drunks .Another trick is a push button start mounted under dash or a coil cut off switch.A friend of mine used to take the rotor arm out,all very well but when its pouring with rain and electrics got wet ,but thats another story.

Changing timing belt


LINE THE POINT ON THE CAMSHAFT SPROCKET WITH THE DIMPLE IN THE HEAD, THEN THERE WILL BE A NOTCH IN THE CRANKSHAFT SPROCKET THAT LINES UP WITH THE NOTCH RIGHT ABOVE IT, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND IT! MAKE SURE IT IS THE SPROCKET AND NOT THE PULLEY CAUSE IF I REMEMBER RIGHT THEY AREN'T THE SAME.
