I put the eng. back together, now I need to know how to set the timing. On a Ford Contour 1997 2.0 lt.

If its ignition timming then its not adjustable and all done through the PCM.
You do need to have you cams and crank timming done correctly when you installed the belt. If I remember right there are cam holding tools as there are no marks on the cam gears. Maybe the factory's way of making poeple take their vehicles to the dealer instead of buying an expensive tool.

Replace timing belt on Volvo S60

There is no room for error...... Zero clearance. If off one tooth it can and will bend valves. if you are one that just feels the need to get alittle dirty or just can't pay for the service, then get out your Haynes out and turn to .....Tune up, and look at replacing timming belt. Get a cam gear tool that locks them into place so as that they will not move when u have them lined up. make sure they are lined up with marks as said in book. then make sure crank as well as all marks are lined up acordingly. make sure belt marks are lined up with everything. i would reccomend using a volvo belt though cause it will have all the marks on it.However other company's make good quality belts also at a fraction of the price. So it is really up to you.
Good thing when doing timming belt is to also change out your timming belt tensioner. YES do this it will save you a engine in the long run. it is a moving part that will go bad, it will freeze up and snap timming belt. rip out teeth in thebelt and bend valves. So as a gen rule...When you change timming belt, Change belt tensioner at same time since you cant just change tensioner without changing or getting timming belt off. Remember to use your HAYNES. It is your friend and will save you money in the long run. Good luck... Hope this helps you.

Starting the car

If it is a 4cyl, check the timming belt. I dont know how many miles are on yours. If over 100k miles, id purchase a timming belt and open her up and check it out. A jumped belt will make a engine rotate with a drag due to compression and valve timming. Good luck...98contourSVT
