2000 Ford Escort zx2 runs rough and stalls in reverse


The Ford Escort ZX2, the 2.0 liter is a interference engine,The valve and the piston kissed each other as they met with a broken timing belt,Just to let you know a cam position sensor does not create rough idle, it can stall the engine at a stop sign,but the solution is a valve job, and who ever put the timing belt on after the job should have done a cylinder effeciency test.

Might purchase 2002 Saturn SL2 95,000 miles. Should timing chain, serpentine belt & water pump be replaced? Estimate on cost?


The timing chain should be fine and as a rule will last the life of the engine. I've seen several of these engines with over 250k on them and they are still running fine. If the serpentine belt is original yet then I would certainly change that, odds are however that it has been replaced at least once by now. Take a good look at it and check for cracks, fraying, etc. If in doubt then I would replace it. As for the water pump I wouldn't necessarily replace it unless you think it may be seeping coolant or the bearing is rough or loose when you turn it by hand. They aren't very expensive or hard to replace however so it's pretty much a judgement call on your part.

Recently I had my 2000 gmc 2500 6.0 liter truck start running rough. I changed the spark plugs, checked the coil packs and replaced the fuel pumpand fuel filter. Still no change....Any suggestions?


ROUGH IDLING CAN BE CAUSE BY MANY THINGS.I AM LOOKING AT LEAKING VACUUM HOSES OR INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKET LEAK.DIRTY FUEL INJECTORS AND WORN ENGINE VALVES WILL CAUSE ROUGH IDLING.ALSO LOW IDLE SPEED CAUSE ENGINE TO RUN ROUGH.

Check engine light is on: engine idles rough


IT SOUNDS LIKE THE IAC (IDLE AIR CONTROL) MOTOR IS BAD OR GOING BAD, BUT THE QUICK SOLUTION IS GO TO ANY AUTO ZONE,OR ADVANCE AUTO PARTS STORE, AND THEY WILL CHECK IT FOR FREE,& TELL YOU WHAT SIGNAL CODE MADE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COME ON, I WOULD DO THAT JUST TO BE FOR SURE, BECAUSE THERE ARE A FEW OTHER THINGS THAT CAN CAUSE IT AS WELL,SUCH AS MAF SENSOR DIRTY,OXY SENSOR GETTING A BAD READING,ETC.

Timing belt on my 2002 hyundai accent 1.6 liter 4cyl


DID THE BELT BREAK AND THEN IT WAS CHANGED. If so then you may have bent valve. IF NOT then vehicle may be timed wrong. Here is a diagram of your timing marks, http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/tec_info/2002/hyundai/accent/2002_hyundai_accent_timing_belt_diagram_marks.htm contact if you need more help.
