Well id suggest firstly draining the tank of as much fuel as possible, for safety and weight. secondly the tank doesnt have to be fully dropped there is enough room to be able to replace the sensor therefor you can leave the filler neck and tubes connected. undo the tank supports on one side and gain access that way.

its probably the gauge in the tank if they put the pump in and not moved the wiring when fitting it get court on the float so does not move, had this before, but if it been like this for a year i would remove the gauge as its not been moving about to keep the resistance board clean so would need to be cleaned up, oil spray and a cotton bud should clean it up ok with out damaging the board.

There is a pin inside my coolant sensor for my 2001 ford escort zx2.what is that pin for? and how do i install my new sensor?


The later models of the ZX2 used a push in sensor with a retaining pin. You remove that pin and pull the sensor out. So far I haven't found a part store that carries that type and have had to get the sensor from the dealer.

Instructions for replacing fuel pump in a 2001 ford Escort ZX2


Remove the rear seat, remove the 4 screws holding the metal cover, and you'll see the top of the fuel tank. The pump module is held in place by a locking ring that can be removed by use of a brass punch and hammer. If the ring is rusted, it'll get damaged during removal and will need replaced. You can get a new ring from Ford. Once the ring is removed, you can pull the pump module out. Remove the small screws from the top of the module and you can pull the top off of the basket to gain access to the fuel pump. Replace the pump and get new fuel pump strainers.

Ford escort 1998 timing belt break bend a bunch of valves


I agree with hotchevy.

This is catastrophic for the engine and there will be damage beyond the inevitable bent valves. This is the cost of poor preventative maintenance.
Rebuilding the engine will be expensive as will installing a replacement unit. Get some quotes but I suggest it's probably not worth it given the market value of the vehicle.

Serpentine belt installation on an 1998 ford ZX2 escort


If there is no diagram on the underside of your hood, or around the engine compartment, just wrap it around the crankshaft, and work your way around the pulleys, going flats to flats, ribs to ribs. There may be a couple of combinations, but you'll get it.

Yes, All the years of the ZX2 utilize the same engine. 1998-2003 are all the same except for ECU programing and the MAF wiring. You should not have a problem.
