SOURCE: how do you align the camshaft & crankshaft timing marks 1.9

This is the same as a Ford Escort 1.9, the #1 cylinder should be all the way up. To confirm- the crak shift mark should be on zero which is Crank Shift Center- THe camshift sproket should align with the headmark. Make sure both marks don't move. Align the belt- not too tight , not to loose

SOURCE: TIMING MARKS CAMBELT REPLACEMENT FOR CL-T CHARADE, PLEASE

Hi Cas,

1) timing belt - see the small dot on tooted crank (small) pulley and match this with a notch ^ on engine body. Align the 'F' on overhead camshaft front pulley with lower crank shaft (small pullet). You should also alight the top pulley with a ^ on right side of big pulley when facing engine from front

In case of diesel pump:
2) cam belt - alight the dot mark on small camshaft pulley with notch ^ on tappet cover. Move and hold pump pulley and alight it with dot on this pulley to dot mark on plate to which pump is bolted.

Regards,

Gulfraz, Karachi, Pakistan

Electrical failure of instruments (temp & fuel gauges, speedometer & rev counter) on 52reg ford focus. All fuses intact. What's the problem?


Check the temp sensor wire that goes to the engine. They will short out to engine and make the dash do strange things.

Hi I have a 2001 1.6 petrol focus with 49.000 on the clock, can you please talk me through the cambelt change, many thanks.


is that 49,000 ks, you should be good for another thirty or so, do please purchase a manual for this, it requires the front of the engine to be dissaembled, line up the timing marks on #i cyl before dissassembly, then loosten the tensioner, remove belt, repalce anything that seems questionable at this time, there is too much involved to just say do it, i trust that you can , if you have problms i am always on line

How to change my cambelt, and where to buy


ok its not a cam belt its a timing belt its on the passanger side in a front wheel drive car you can get one at any auto parts store but when you go to replace it mark the pullys with a paint marker so you know they are lined up when you replace it otherwise tou pistons will come up and hit your valves distroying your heads and ruening your motor

Change cambelt


assuming that you are asking about the timing belt?. if you are not mechcanically inclined, you might not want to tackle this one yourself. if you don't do exactly what needs to be done you will be doing damage and costing yourself a whole lot more than you would have "if" it would have been done by a professional.

It could be an engine mapping problem. There should be a fault code generated by this incident.Take your car to a ford dealer to have it checked out. No engine = difficult steering and next to no brakes, not nice.
