Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2
I am changing the timing belt. the last one broke. i have the crank at tdc and using a bar for cam alignment. but, do i need to do something special with the vct (maybe pre-load it)?
Ok, i changed my timing belt,and water pump and the code on the computer read crank pos.sensor. i need to know why it came on. i changed the sensor,and the 02 sensor,and the car will run for a min,but then dies do you know why

First pull the timing belt tensioner then slip the belt off the cam gears. You then need to find TDC (Top dead center). 3 ways to find TDC 1) There are marks on the crank pulley align them for TDC. 2) Remove timing cover and use crank gear mark seen in link below 3) Put the dip stick in cylinder 1 and turn engine until dip stick stops going up. After finding TDC align cam gear marks seen in link below. Now make sure both cam and crank stay in position and slip timing belt back on (you can move the cam gear to get the belt on but make sure the marks are aligned after the belt is on). Last tighten the belt tensioner, I usually use my finger or an extension to get some more tension on the belt. You might have to remove engine mount bracket makes life much easier as the front cover section is TIGHT !!!. Turn engine a few times to make sure you have compression and engine turns without getting stuck. See link below good luck.
