Your timing belt is advanced by one tooth. Sorry to say, you have to take it back apart.

Make sure all connections with sensors are hooked up and all ground wires are on or could be not timed correctly

2000 Ford Escort zx2 runs rough and stalls in reverse

The Ford Escort ZX2, the 2.0 liter is a interference engine,The valve and the piston kissed each other as they met with a broken timing belt,Just to let you know a cam position sensor does not create rough idle, it can stall the engine at a stop sign,but the solution is a valve job, and who ever put the timing belt on after the job should have done a cylinder effeciency test.

Just had the water pump timing belt and tension wheel it stalls and dies when trying to stop or slowing down to will roughly idle in park...if it dies it starts right back

sounds like the timing is one(maybe two) teeth out of time on the timing belt. the computer is trying to advance or ****** the timing to compensate for the misaligned camshaft spockets.

Truck struggles to start, then runs fine until I come to a stoplight. Take foot off of accelerator & shift into neutral. Truck will not idle; cuts off & will immediately restart but not idle.

It sounds like your balance belt might be broken. I have a 1991 Mighty Max that experienced the same problem. My water pump started leaking and as I was replacing it, I discovered the balance belt was also broken after removing many parts on the front of the engine in getting to the water pump. It's a small rubber belt that turns opposite of the crankshaft to keep the engine from shaking at idle. My engine is still torn down, as I don't know how to replace the balance belt. Sure could use some advice on this repair.

2000 ford escort zx2 had timing belt and water pump and vacum hose repaired/replaced now car stalls once in awhile at intersection. sounds good when starts but does not idle properly.

How long has it been since you had the belt replaced. Did you have a shop do it. Sounds like the timing belt might be off a tooth, can you take it back and have them recheck the timing?

Car stalled

these vehicles overheat real fast when u noticed the water pump leak yu should have replaced it now i think that you have over heated the head and the heads have to be removed , check for cracks and most probably you will end up doing a valve job and replacement of the head gasket, water pump and the timing belt. sorry not very cheap at all
