Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Older escorts were interference engines .. so when the belt broke you broke a lot more parts (very expensive) .. but yours is a clearance engine .. so when the belt breaks it just quits .. still its a good idea to change the belt well before failure .. that would be 60,000 to a max of 120,000 .. so you really need one now .. its a bit of work but you can change it yourself. you do need a little information .. here is a very good article on this that should help a lot ..
it would take a mechanic just a few hours but if you have no expenience expect a whole day. make sure you have eveything you need .. gaskets pullys tensioner, metric tools .. you can likely get a kit with everything you need . sure saves a lot of you can do it ...
