1999 ford contour with DOHC 2.0L motor. Need to find timing marks on crank and cams


It is only advised to do the timing belt with these special tools. For best results, I strongly suggest paying an experienced professional to do this procedure.
Turn crankshaft clockwise. #1 & #4 cylinders are at (general) TDC when the woodruff key is straight up.
I have to say, this is not a job for someone who is not fully prepared. The system will only vary the timing 2 deg and this IS an INTERFERENCE ENGINE. Meaning, there will be catastrophic engine failure if the marks are misaligned, if the belt breaks or if the removal and installation service procedures are not strictly adhered to.
So, here is enough information to get you in real trouble ( in my opinion).

What if my timing belt broke how do i get it back in to time 1999 ford contur


There are marks on the pulleys and engine to line everything up. I would check to see if the car has an interference engine, if the timing belt breaks, some of the valves will be left open and the pistons will come up and hit and bend the valves.

1999 ford contor timing belt broke when driving is motor freeruning or intererence motor


According to the Gates site (mfg. of belts and hoses) it is not an interference engine. I would check the compression when I replaced the timing belt as bent valves will show up on this test.

The timing belt on my '99 Contour just broke. I had it replaced along with the tensioner by a Ford dealer....but now the engine falters under moderate to hard acceleration. Prior to the timing belt...


let them re install it ,
I think it is one tooth backwards.
you need to do a timing test with a dynamo dyno lap top computer hooked up to the engine computer. the dealership for ford will do it let them know.

99 ford contour 2.0 dohc timing belt replacement... i have the alignment tool and blanking plug but which way are the cams turned to align?


Engine Timing Belt/Chain Illustration
Figure 1
fm1069500554000x.pngBefore installing tool. If the belt broke turn the engine so the #1 piston is half way up. This way you will not bend the valves while turning cams. If you feel that the cams are very hard to turn or stops turning then turn crank by hand to lower piston away from valve. Then turn the cams clockwise or counter clockwise slow one at a time too the proper slot position for the tool to fit. Once the cam marks are lined up bring the #1 piston to its TDC.

Replacing timing belt on a 1999 ford contour 2.0


moz-screenshot-6.jpgCAUTION The 2.0L engine is an interference motor. Extending thereplacement interval could lead to the belt breaking and severe andcostly engine damage. Care must be taken if rotating the crankshaft orcamshafts with the belt off, if resistance is felt, do not force themto turn.
