Is it possible that is good? Yes there is a chance. Either way the only way to know is, to replace the belt and check if it starts.

you need to pull the timing covers to see if it has a broken timing belt and find out for sure if it is an interferance engine, could be a good deal if it just needs T-belt.

1999 escort zx2 timing belt broke


The ZX2 Zetec is a non-interference engine. This means the valves are not capable of touching the pistons at any time. If your belt breaks, there will not be any valve damage. There are reliefs cut into the top of the pistons that allow clearance for the valves if the belt breaks. Most engines are interference and will cause several hundred or even thousands of dollars of damage when a timing belt breaks. Most shop manuals list the ZX2 as interference but it is not. Many people seek out this how-to because a mechanic has informed them that they have valve damage and quoted a repair price over $1000.
