Question about 1995 Ford Escort

1 Answer

Alternator dead possibly- ford escort 91

Just had an extensive tune-up, everything replaced, cooling system, timing belt, radiator, serpentine belt all wires and plugs etc...

so the deal is that the engine is not turning over. i do hear a humming. when i turn the key over, lights work etc..

battery is 3 years old.

i can only imagine it is the alternator...what do you think?

Definately the Alternator. a New Battery could not Hurt. May not have enough Crank amps left to Kick it on over.

How to put a serpentine belt on a ford zx2 4 cylinder


The serpentine drive belt on a Ford Escort ZX2 snakes its way from the crankshaft pulley out to the engine accessory pulleys and the serpentine belt tensioner. The serpentine belt system's design employs only one belt, held taught with the automatic belt tensioner, eliminating the need for the multiple belt system used on earlier model year Escorts. When the belt begins cracking, fraying or losing ribs, it's time to replace it. If you have entry-level auto-repair skill, you can change a belt on a Ford Zx2 in about 45 minutes. http://www.lightdeal.co.uk

Serpentine belt has some cracks


any cracked belt should be replaced. the timing belt drives the cam shaft while the serpentine drives the power steering pump, alternator, water pump, air conditioner compressor, etc. if it breaks in the middle of nowhere, car will get hot real fast and become very hard to steer as you try and find somewhere to pull over. it will also be in the night and adverse weather. so replace it now when it is convenient.

I have a 91 pontiac 6000, I replaced the alternator and now I cant put the belt back on, I need a diagram of it


Hi,

you need a Belt Tensioner Serpentine Tool, to lift the Arm and replace the Belt,
disconnect negative Battery Cable, first!

connect Serpentine Belt, starting at bottom crankshaft, work belt, up the belt rotates toward, Radiator , so the Belt, goes under the Water Pump, and under the Belt Tensioner.
