Suspect the timing belt tension was to low and has jumped a few teeth initially(run rough) and then jumped further or stripped teeth(will not start at all).
check timing belt position setup....
if its 1-2 teeth out of timing you could put a new belt on with engine correctly setup.
.if its completely wrong the your engine will have internal damage(valves bent and pistons dented)

SOURCE: changed timing belt on my 99 ford escort zx2 car no

if you have a no spark scenario i would check your crank sensor located at the top left side of the harmonic balance pulley.the crankshaft (about 11'oclock) a 2 wire plug with a sensor on it check to see if it is damaged or unsecured. this sensor can cause no spark if not working correctly. This sensor is based of frequency not voltage testing is difficult, just make sure that there isnt too muck air gap. and that it is secured.Lastly may want to check timing possible that the belt has jumped some teeth and she has fallen out of timing. maybe a bad tensioner The coil will adapt i think up to 10 degree, ****** or advance. Good luck

SOURCE: zx2 ford escort pully tensioner

Use a 13 mm wrench and turn the tensioner bolt like you are trying to tighten it. This will swing the arm away from the belt and release tension. The tensioner is just above and between the a/c compressor pulley and the crank pulley.

    Change serpantine belt


    The easiest way to change a serpentine belt is to go and buy a serpentine belt tool (Around $15-$20 at the auto parts store.) It's a long, flat wrench with bits that will fit most belt tensioners. The idea is to move the belt tensioner down, to allow the belt to relax so you can pull it off.
    Once you have the belt off, follow the serpentine belt installation diagram on a sticker, located under the hood. Then, while pushing down on the belt tensioner, slip the belt on to the last pully and then slowly bring the tensioner back to tension. Double-check your belt routing with the belt diagram before starting your Grand Cherokee.

    I hope this helps! :)

    I need to replace the fan belt. Which pulleys does it go around?


    Hi there,

    My brother in law and I changed it without taking anything apart except the fan cover, what you'll need to do is gently use a crobar to release the tensioner pully directly below the alternator, and jam it a bit, then slowly release the old belt, if it's as worn as mine was you'll be fine. Then simply run the new belt starting from the bottom up. There's a great diagram on the weblink below.
