I have a potential client telling me that her 1997 ford escort has 2 not 1 but 2 timing belts. I have never heard of such a thing.


Hi, my name is Shaun. I'll try to help you out with your problem. As far as i know, the 1997 Escort was only available with the 2.0 SOHC engine ( in the USA, that is.) But even if it is DOHC, it would still have only one timing belt. Maybe you're client assumed since it's a DOHC it would have two timing belts or maybe they are confusing the serpentine belts for timing belts? Either way, you will only be dealing with ONE belt. hope this helps out. Have a great day!

How exactly should the intake cam be set and the exhaust cam be set on a ford 2.0 dohc with VCT.


There is a Camshaft Alignment Timing Tool that is made to hold the cams and another one to find TDC on the crank.

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

I'm trying to install a new timing belt for my 1999 ford escort zx2 with a vct motor. I aligned the camshafts, did a full rotation and they came out of alignment. How do you align the camshafts with the...


It is normal for the exhaust cam to be slightly off during a rotation because of the nature of the VCT mechanisim. It uses oil pressure to change the cam angle. Since there is no oil pressure with the engine off, it won't stop in the same place every time. Check the links below for more information:

My check engine light has been on \Replace cam sensor ?


The cam sensor and VCT sprocket is a fairly common problem on those cars and $1400 is a bit on the high side, but not terribly so. A new car might be in your future. If it runs ok, I would not worry about it though. The VCT adjusts timing for fuel efficiency and emmisions and won't hurt the car to drive. Though your fuel mileage and performance may suffer a bit.

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.
