If the timing moved when installing timing belt it could be one notch off and cause that problem.

SOURCE: 2000 ford escort zx2 had timing belt and water

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?

SOURCE: Car all of a sudden started overheating. Already

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.

2000 Ford Escort zx2 runs rough and stalls in reverse


The Ford Escort ZX2, the 2.0 liter is a interference engine,The valve and the piston kissed each other as they met with a broken timing belt,Just to let you know a cam position sensor does not create rough idle, it can stall the engine at a stop sign,but the solution is a valve job, and who ever put the timing belt on after the job should have done a cylinder effeciency test.

Check your shifter linkage at the transmission, sounds like a broken or missing bushing once you see the connections there the problem should be visible. Hope this helps, let me know.

2000 escortzx2 wont go into reverse but goes into drive


In an automatic transmission, if you lose reverse, it uually means it's replace or rebuild transmission time. You can check the fluid to see if it is up there but I'm betting your tranny going bad.

Good Luck
