Check for spark at spark plug first. remove a plug and leave the wire on, hold it against block. crank engine & see if plug sparks. also, listen for air pressure in spark plug hole. report back.

Timing belt failure is catastrophic on zero clearance engines. I would check the crank shaft sensor to see if it failed. To check the valves you need a cylinder leak down test kit.

Timming belt?


It is possible but stop trying to crank it. It could cause more damage than what is already done. If it is the timing belt it could bend the valves and all kind of bad stuff. Better call the tow truck and take it to the shop.

How do you replace a timing belt on a 2000 ford focus 2.0 liter sohc


Removing The Old Timing Belt Remove the negative battery cable in all models.
  • Detach the passenger inner splash-shield and wheel cover, the accessory drive and timing belts, the tensioner and the crankshaft pulley.
  • Remove the spark plugs, catalytic converter and idler pulley in 2000 and older Ford Focuses. These models also require the crankshaft be turned to "Top Dead Center" (TOC) and a crankshaft timing peg be inserted. Turn the shaft to the right against the timing peg.
  • Undo the retaining fasteners and lift the timing belt cover off the engine. Align the crank and camshaft timing marks. Older models call for undoing the water pump pulley and valve cover before locking the camshaft in place.
  • Release the tensioner's bolt. Turn the arm to the right 14 degrees and place a 1/8 inch drill bit in the opening. This secures the belt tensioner in place.
  • Take the timing belt off.
  • Installing Your New Timing Belt
  • Replace the timing belt counterclockwise motion beginning at the crankshaft.
  • Unlock the tensioner. Recheck the timing marks by turning the crankshaft two rotations to the right.
  • Tauten the tensioner's pulley bolt to 15 to 22 foot pounds (20 to 30 Nm) in 2003 and younger models and to 17 to 20 foot pounds (22 to 28 Nm) in older Focuses. Remove the crankshaft timing peg. Reconnect the crankshaft pulley and secure to 81 to 96 foot pounds (110 to 130 Nm) and 81 to 89 foot pounds (110 to 120 Nm) respectively.
  • Replace the splash shield, front wheel, timing belt cover, accessory drive belt and tensioner and any other items that were disconnected.
  • Hook up the negative battery cable. Start the engine and check that the timing belt is functioning properly.

    My belt tore, and my engine wont start now?


    I think the crank sensor is on a bracket next to the crank pulley. Did the belt break a wire to the sensor or break the sensor when it came off.
