Question about 1994 Ford Escort
You sure dont want to find out the hard way... there might be a slapping or growling noise from the front of the engine ... or it could skip a tooth ..in that case the engine will be out of time and wont run right .. unfortunatly i think your engine is what they call an interference type ... if the timing belt breaks the engine locks up .. it pretty much does a lot of serious damage to the valves and pistons when that happens .. my sisters escort locked up on the freeway and she skidded around in circles before she figured out to put the clutch in .. so you sure dont want to wait for the timing belt to break if you have an interference engine ... other engines are called "clearence engines" .. if the timing belt breaks on those then it just quits .. it doesnt do any other damage .. still you are taking a chance of being stuck somewhere you dont want to be .. you should follow the recommendations in your manual for changing the belt way before it breaks .. i think thats something like every 70,000 miles .. if you suspect the belt then have it checked or changed right away .. the repair is MUCH more expensive if you wait until the engine is damaged ..
