Question about 2000 Ford Escort
Have replaced the Timing belt and water pump already because the car just cut off on me one day at an intersection. Now I have this problem of the car cutting off when I put ut in drive or reverse.
If the timing moved when installing timing belt it could be one notch off and cause that problem.

How long has it been since you had the belt replaced. Did you have a shop do it. Sounds like the timing belt might be off a tooth, can you take it back and have them recheck the timing?

The thermostat is the most likely problem and also the easiest/cheapest to replace. You could also start by checking the fuse for the electric engine fan, if it is good you could try to disconnect the fan and run 12v ( + and -) to it directly from the battery. It should turn on.
