Can u show me how to install a serpin belt on a 1998 ford escort


Here's a website with your diagram and instructions. The serpentine belt is also called a drive belt.
Go to 2carpros.com. Click on INFORMATION on the right side. Scroll down to serpentine and timing belt diagrams. Then enter your car's description. The serpentine belt diagram is below the timing belt information.

IS CHANGING THE SERPENTINE BELT SCHEDULED MAINTAINENCE FOR MY 97 ESCORT? IF SO WHAT ELSE HAS TO BE REPLACED AT THAT TIME?


replacing this belt is just insurance that it won't break on you later, depending on how many miles you had driven it so far...it's advise to change the TENSIONER also, this keeps the belt correctly adjusted, check also the IDLER pulleys for bearing type noise and repl as needed...........The other BELT you should maintain is the TIMING BELT for the engine, service it around every 60K and also when doing that repl the waterpump and nec. pulleys.....These Escorts are generally low maint vehicle, and affordable to run....hope this helps you...GL

Serpentine belt replacement


2.0L Engines
See Figures 11, 12 and 13
The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner.
Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension.
The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.
