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.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your kindness!"
Looking from the front of the car, start at the thermostat housing (where the top radiator hose goes) and go down from there. Located right next to the exhaust mannifold you'll see the hose going to the PCV valve.
