Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2
My wife has a 2001 Escort ZX2 it wont go into overdrive.I ran a check on it it says solenoid a needs replaced.But I spoke to the Ford delership And they said something about the throttle valve . What should I do?
the thermostat is on the front right side just below the air tube (which you have to remove) in a black hard plastic case. It is a PAIN IN THE ARSE to get to, it will have 2 sensors sticking out of it, on on the bottom, one on the side.

the diagram is located in the engine compartment under the hood.
Clean off the surfaces and it is one of the stickers there.

cam shaft timing marks on back of cams ,two slots ,use a flat piece of metal to align .remove no1 spark plug and drop long thin screwdriver down it to bring piston just below tdc,then align cams so both cams are on the rock (valves closed) with knob on back cam aligning with pick up sensor left side between lobes.then bring piston up to tdc and fit belt.turn engine over twice with socket on bottom pulley to make sure no valves clear pistons.Remember to remove flat edge from back of cams i didnt last time and bent my home made tool

All of Ford's belt driven engines are non-interference with the exception of the 3.0L villager which was really a nissan.
