Before we go assuming it is the timing, let's check a few other things...

Car wont start

sounds like the timing belt has gone would not keep trying to start engine if this is the case and it will cost you more to fix. it may have striped a cog on the belt or the adjuster has given up the goat. clicking and clunk is a most common sound of the belt going. if you have to have the belt changed and the engine runs and is ticking then the valves are bent and you will need to have the head changed or the valves replaced, as over time the valve can snap and then the engine is a gonner.

2001 jeep cherokee 4.0l won't start; good crank and fuel; stopped suddenly on road; no trouble before stop. scanner codes arePO303, PO432, PO456; 106,000 miles; has been good running car.

303 is a misfire on the number 3 cylinder, 432 is a bad catalytic converter or O2 sensor, 456 is a minor evaporator leak (Most likely the gas cap wasn't screwed on tight). Do a compression check on the motor. Most likely you'll find zero compression or low compression on 1 or more of the cylinders. I suspect your timing belt broke. Unfortunately this means you be replacing the timing belt but you will also have to have the head fixed and replace all of the valves. If the vehicle has a Distributor and not a coil pack you can remove the distributor cap and crank the motor over, if the rotor doesn't turn it is you timing belt, if it does the timing belt is good. Some vehicle also have a plastic cover over the front timing belt pulley that can be removed to check the belt. You maybe able to remove this and check it that way.

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

My 1999 mercury mystique shut off when i come to a complete stop

It may be the timing on the vehicle! I was having the same problem, and now I am replacing the timing belt and serpentine belt. I pray that it is the problem and that it fixes what was going on. My car basically stalled when I came to a stop or slowing down fast. Eventually, when I came to a stop got out, and when I got back in, it wouldn't start. So, I may be wrong but I am hoping I am right because of the time and effort that I have put in this vehicle.

Timing belt broken

this is an interference (valves hit the pistons) engine and will cause engine damage if the belt brakes, the best thing to do is put the belt on and see if it starts, I have seen some dodge the bullet on occasion. In most cases u will hear nothing, the engine will just stop running.
