Supertine belt diagram Ford Escort ZX2 1999 Old brken off now replacing it with new but no picture or diagram showing how its to be installed properly.


If timing belt broke when the engine was running then a belt wont fix your problem as when the belt brakes the valves stop straight away and the crankshaft will still turn over at least 4to6 times adn in that time could AND would bend a couple of valves at least.if
not a lot more problems BUT if you still go ahead with fitting the belt then all the casings are marked to fit the belt and the keyway in crankshaft is always at 12 oclock to start with.. Ron

Need diagram for replacing scerpentine belt in 99 ford escort zx2


go to gates.com and click the link on the left that says Part Locator & Interchange, put in your car info then look down the page and click the camera next to the serpintine belt. These belts are not usually hard to change, the tensioner pulley should have a 3/8" square drive hole in it to release the tension, I always start at the crankshaft and loop around leaving the tensioner for last, hope this helps, let me know

Timing belt cracked Engine in 98 Ford Escort


You can go to a shop that do this kind of work and find out.
Mine broke the timing belt and damage the head. I had a used head put on
It is not very hard to find a ford escort engine.Replacing the engine with a used one would be the cheapest thing to do but change the timing belt right away,
You can do some research on line to find out how much a engine cost.
You can call around where you live.
