Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Yes I too am confused too ? the belts don´t just come off.!
Normally the either snap, or loose teeth, or the water pump bearings go.
Sounds like your timing belt tensioner pulley may be at fault, it is adjustable, and the locking bolts/nuts may have come loose.?
Hope this is of help.
Good Luck !
