Question about 1999 Ford Escort

My 1999 Ford ZX2 won't turn over

My car has a long history, 1999 Ford Escort ZX2, 167,000 miles.
She has been sitting for a while and needs work; we replaced the battery and starter, and while before I know the starter was fried because of the sound it was making. Now, the sound… sometimes it makes the “locked up sound”, then it makes the “cranking” sound, and then it did start once: so… I had an 82 Chevette that had a flywheel that “didn’t connect” whatever that means and made a horrible sound when I started it sometimes and it reminds me of this- could this be the same thing- or am I dealing with something worse? Like I said… She kick starts just fine… J
Thanks for your help...

Sounds like the battery is way under power,or the starter motor is the wrong one count the number of teeth on the pinion 9 or 11.put battery on a trickle charge for at least a week to de sulphate the plates or a nice new one and put that on charge as well as often batterys are on the shelf for a long while and need a recharge ,but only a slow charger no booster as this can buckle the plates

Does this car have an interference motor?


ford escort/ focus engine 2.0 l spi sohc 1997-2004 has been identified as an intereference engine and that means very likely valve to piston damage
( auto data timing belt information )
note-- up to 2002 year Ford has not recommended a timing belt interval for changing
Ford has however recommended a replacement every 120.000 miles using the service history as a guide
however good professional trade practice recommends every 60.000 miles ( 100.00klms) and the replacement work should include replacement of the crank and cam shaft seals and idler pulleys involved ( the biggest destroyer of belts is oil)
recommended labor time is 2 hours
if the belt has broken then head removal and valve work will add up to 5 hours to that time

1999 ford escort zx2 cranks but won't start


As with any no-start issue, you will need to figure out if you have a problem with fuel pressure to the injectors, or spark to the plugs.
I would also check the computer for trouble codes.
Let me know what you find out.
