    Does this car have an interference motor?

    ford escort/ focus engine 2.0 l spi sohc 1997-2004 has been identified as an intereference engine and that means very likely valve to piston damage
    ( auto data timing belt information )
    note-- up to 2002 year Ford has not recommended a timing belt interval for changing
    Ford has however recommended a replacement every 120.000 miles using the service history as a guide
    however good professional trade practice recommends every 60.000 miles ( 100.00klms) and the replacement work should include replacement of the crank and cam shaft seals and idler pulleys involved ( the biggest destroyer of belts is oil)
    recommended labor time is 2 hours
    if the belt has broken then head removal and valve work will add up to 5 hours to that time

    2 litre ford timing belt diagram 2000 escort zx2 (dohc) .is belt failure always catastrophic

    This is a non-interference engine. Anyone saying anything different is using an old book. Some Ford dealers might even tell you it is interference. There are reliefs cut into the top of the pistons to clear the valves if the belt breaks. There is a how-to posted here and on Team ZX2 .com

    Serpentine belt replacement

    2.0L Engines
    See Figures 11, 12 and 13
    The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner.
    Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension.
    The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.
