    Ford Escorts don't use a 1.4L (1.8, 1.9L) in the US, what kind of car is this? in any event is there a hole in the pan? maybe the trans locked up, that happens.

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

1998 ford escort will not start no spark at spark plug 1998 ford escort


hi you dont say which engine you have so will asume you have the twin cam zetec engine as it is the most prolific first you need to check your cambelt is ok as cambelt failures are all too common on this engine ,as you open the bonnet the upper cam cover is on the left held by two small bolts either 10 or 8 mm cant recall which undo these and remove cover and check condition of your belt
does it look loose are there any missing teeth off the belt if everything is ok here check the plug wires for resistance with a test meter set on ohms check either end with the probes for any high resistance change them if they do good luck

I'm trying to install a new timing belt for my 1999 ford escort zx2 with a vct motor. I aligned the camshafts, did a full rotation and they came out of alignment. How do you align the camshafts with the...


It is normal for the exhaust cam to be slightly off during a rotation because of the nature of the VCT mechanisim. It uses oil pressure to change the cam angle. Since there is no oil pressure with the engine off, it won't stop in the same place every time. Check the links below for more information:

Smoke is coming from the carburater when itry to start it, a puff of smoke comes from the carb, and theengine just turns


this sounds like the cam belt may have broken if the engine wont run at all, if it still runs then im thinking its a head gasket blowen or an inlet valve is not seating right (ie: bent or badly pitted) and its venting the inlet manifold so your seeing a puff of partly undurnt fule or smoke! check with a compreshion tester all the cylinders they should have at least 150,,180 psi if very low then tip in a small drop of engine oil and retest,, if one or more cylinders are still low (ie: both next to each other) its a head gasket blown also look behind the frount cam belt cover to check if the cam shaft is turning around if its not the belt has broken,, and you may well need a recon cylinder head as it would have bent some of the valves in the head,,,,normaly if the cam drive belt has broken the motor just locks up, but if it did not lock up it will spin over very fast and would not even try to fire up,, its about 5 to 8 hours work changing the head gasket and fitting a "new cam belt",,

Were can i find a diagram for the timing to fix my 1994 ford escort


The best place is the library, check out a chiltons/moter or haynes repair manual. Any of these will have all the info you need for the job.
A couple of things you should know about the older escorts, in many
cases the timing belt breaks becouse the water pump siezed.
Make sure to check it while your in there.Another bad thing that can happen when the belt breaks. Your cam shaft and crank shaft are spinning out of sync. This can couse bent valves and other nasty things, to happen. This happens most often when the belt breaks at
high rpm. Hope this helps Good luck

Cylinder head ford zetec escort p reg


Stage 1 = 15Nm
Stage 2 = 40Nm
Stage 3 = Plus 90 degrees or quarter of a turn. Good tip is to mark all the bolts after initial torque setting with tip-ex , i.e. all to the front of the car. When you finish they should all point towards the timing belt.
This is also a good way to make sure you don't miss one or tighten one twice if you are distracted since it is not a torque setting. New bolts should be used by the way as they are stretch bolts. Timing of cams - remove cam cover and you will see a slot on the end of the cams. Opposite end from belt. You need to slip a piece of 5mm flat bar or a long 5mm allen key into then so that the bar rests on the face of the head. Engine should be a tdc.
