Question about 2003 Ford Focus
Replaced the Timming belt.2001 Dual cam focus Z Tech 2.0 L Set to TDC as per manual. Compression test good. Started car RPM keep going up run around 2200. Retarded the Timing back center of dead center . Problem remains
Need advice. Thanks Vili
Your valve tiiming is way off. you didnt work counterclockwise installing the belt keeping it under tension. and pay close attention to cam positions the half moons face up pic here
now for the correct position of crank pulley
here is the full way to do it just make sure you start at crankshaft working counterclockwise keeping tension on belt as much as possible and when finished always turn engine 2 revolutions with a wrench on crankshaft bolt and double check the alignment before putting back together. but here is the link
