SOURCE: replaced alternator on 1997 ford escort and battery indicator lig

Battery light is on and battery is not holding the charge because you have at lest one cell damaged
because of accidental short-circuits between the battery terminal. So most probably you need to get new one (in Sears starts from $49,99) For fuses location follow this link please
Good Luck

SOURCE: changing the water pump on a ford escort 1997

2.0L Engine
SOHC ENGINE
See Figure 8

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise the car and support it with safety stands.
CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  1. Drain and recycle the engine coolant.
  2. Remove the timing belt.
  3. Unfasten the timing belt tensioner bolt and remove the tensioner.
  4. Disconnect the lower radiator hose from the water pump.
  5. Lower the car and disconnect the heater hose from the water pump.
  6. Unfasten the three bolts and one stud from the water pump.
  7. Remove the water pump.

GAS GETTING INTO CRANKCASE,HITS BUT WON"T START.


Have you checked compression? Ford 2.0L engines are bad about dropping exhaust valve seats. Also are you sure your valve timing is correct? Possible timing belt problem.

Cant find tdc markings on escort 1997 1.8


Click on the following free, direct LinkS. It has all the Timing Belt Diagrams you will need, complete with Instructional and Directional Diagrams to set your Timing.
To my knowledge the 1997 Ford Escort only had a 2.0L not a 1.8L.
The 1996 had available the 1.8L and 1.9L. I could be mistaken - my apology.
In any case:
The 1st Link is for the 1996 Ford Escort 1.8L
The 2nd Link is for the 1997 Ford Escort 2.0L
Compare/use.

Let me know if this helped or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!
