1999 ford contour with DOHC 2.0L motor. Need to find timing marks on crank and cams


It is only advised to do the timing belt with these special tools. For best results, I strongly suggest paying an experienced professional to do this procedure.
Turn crankshaft clockwise. #1 & #4 cylinders are at (general) TDC when the woodruff key is straight up.
I have to say, this is not a job for someone who is not fully prepared. The system will only vary the timing 2 deg and this IS an INTERFERENCE ENGINE. Meaning, there will be catastrophic engine failure if the marks are misaligned, if the belt breaks or if the removal and installation service procedures are not strictly adhered to.
So, here is enough information to get you in real trouble ( in my opinion).

In replacing a water pump in a 1997 ford coutour, the book i have says to remove the timing belt, 1. i cant find any cam marks to keep things aligned 2. any good ideas on how to loosen the crank pulley...


they dont have marks, we at the dealership use a special tool. you can make your own marks. if you reuse the timing belt make sure that you mark the direction, crank pully bolt you can get a chain wrench from auto zone that will wrap around the pulley and lock down to hold it. i have used this when an impact wasnt handy.

How to align cams on a 95 ford contour 2.0 dohc?


In order to time this engine you've got to align the cams with the respective markings on the new belt, this also pertains to the crankshaft pulley. If there are no markings on the belt, the camshaft markings will have a demarkation on the head two which each cam must be aligned. From here I cannot tell you where thes marks are but they are usually at 12:00 or 3:00 plus when you get near the alignment point the cams will feel almost like they are freewheeling for about 3/4- 1 inch in either direction.The crankshaft has to be at TDC or topdead center. this is easily accomplised with a 12 inch ruler laid across the front of the pulley with the long side facing up. This way you can center the mounting bolt and the timing mark at the same time, assuring you of exact center alignment. That's about all I can offer. Thank you, Dana. P.S. please do not turn the engine over with the key until you are certain that all three marks are dead on target. You may however turn it over by hand using a socket of the correct size going clockwise on the crankshaft.

if you look real close and you might have to clean the gears real good but you should find a small dot on both the cam and crank gears.
