Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2

1 Answer

Engine swap with two Ford Escorts.

I have two ford escorts that i want to do an engine swap with. The problem is, one is a wagon SE, the other is a zx2.

The zx2 has a blown motor. The timing belt snapped and the pistons are now a part of the cylinder head. So my father who has the wagon, said I could have the motor out of it. His has a automatic, and mine has a standard.

My question is, will the 2.0 spi 2000 fit where a zetec DOHC sat, and will the transmission link up?

WHER IS THE SECRET KEY OF GAS PUMP?


If you mean the fuel pump re-set button, Fords used to put them in the trunk area, maybe behind a trim or moulding piece. If it's not there, you may have to check with the dealer, or someone familiar with later Escorts. Good luck.

Does the 2001 escort zx2 have timing belt or timing chain


yes they have a timing belt

if you need it changed I seriously suggest that you take it to a reputable mechanic, especially if it's already broken. If the intake and exhaust valves are not in the right position when the piston is TDC, it will cause extensive damage.

Brake light switch for 1998 ford escort station wagon


Common problem with these cars are that the rubber piece that "gaps" your brakepedal from the micro-switch keeps breaking (they usually have a replacement rubber piece connected on the brake pedal beside it). If your brake lights won't go off because of this, either change-out this rubber gap piece - or, you can just change the gap with a wrench, and not even use the rubber gap piece (this is what I ended up doing on a couple of my escorts).

My 1997 ford escort won't start. The engine cranks!


Your issue is your cylinder head is dead, and most likely has caused damage to the piston on the dead cylinder. A compression test will show you have a dead cylinder. You should have no less than 100 psi compression on any cylinder. I have personally seen this issue on escorts over 50 times.

have you noticed anything else stop working on the car/van ie heating cigaretter lighter etc, if so it could be the fuse box, ford escorts are renowned for the fuse boxes to go. also another suggestion is to check all of the earth straps, mine used to cut out when i used to turn right because of a dodgy earth, then the fuse box packed in

Gas


Check the rubber air intake hose from the air cleaner box to the engine,(take it off) it may be cracked, when the engine moves the crack opens and all that extra air chokes out the engine, saw this allot on escorts in my 20 years as Ford dealer Tech.
