you can't set timing on that engine. No distributor. Timing is controlled by computer. If it is throwing a timing retarded code, then your timing belt needs replaced because your cam to crank timing is off.

I HAVE A 1998 FORD ESCORT 1.6 LX ESTATE WITH A 16V ZETEC ENGINE. THE CAMBELT HAS ONLY DONE 33 THOUSAND MILES BUT HAS BEEN ON FOR 5 YEARS. DO I HAVE TO CHANGE IT SOON.


I would wait for the milage recommendation. (Unless of course you have an oil or coolant leak that is getting on your timing belt) When you do replace it though, have the tensioner and idler pulleys replaced also. The whole deal can be had as a kit.

My escort zx2 died while doing 60. It will turn over but wont start and makes a grinding noise while turning over. Any ideas? Also is the zetec engine an interference or non?


HI Firstly, the zetec engine IS an interference engine unfortunately.
One way to check if cambelt has gone is undo the oil filler cap and have a friend crank the enginewhile u look down the filler hole if you do not see a camshaft moving ( rotating ) the cambelt
has gone.
I hope i have been of some help with this problem hope it dos`nt cost to much to fix

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
