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.

It's too difficult to describe in words alone, and there are variables such as power steering and air conditioning which will alter the routing. You need photos and diagrams, but the ones which are available are copyright material so can't be posted on FixYa.

I respectfully suggest that you buy a Haynes Manual from either Amazon, eBay or your local car parts store. It's not expensive and will pay for itself with the very first repair.

Hello! The ZETEC engine was used in the 1999 Ford Escort...I do not know what year your vehicle is, however the pin layouts are the same...

The Fuel Injector Fuse (30A) feeds the injectors via normally open contacts of the PCM Power Relay on a Red/White wire (which becomes Red at the injectors) on pin #12 of the Constant Control Module...
The wire colors of injector control leads (at the injectors) are..#3=Brown/Yellow...#1=Tan...#4=Brown/Light Blue...And #2=White

Wire colors at the PCM plug are...#3=Brown/White (pin 74)...#1=Yellow (pin 75...#4=Green/Orange (pin100)...and #2=Violet/Yellow (pin 103)...

Size restrictions on attachments do not allow me to send the entire PCM...aka...ECM pin layout to you...

Water pump on escort


If the engines are Zetec DOHC 16v, I would suggest that you source a new water pump for your engine. To change the water pump is not very easy for the average DIY. I would entrust the job to a vehcile technician and get the drive belts changed at the same time as the anti freeze would have contaminated your drive belts.
