Question about 1998 Ford Escort
They are ahrd to remove. spray wth penetrating oilf or a week. then use a small slide hammer. screw a screw in the center to pull on. Took me 4 hours. Also, a hot air gun to heat the aluminum case helps. Must be hot like a craft heat tool from Joanne Fabrics. $35 or rent a heat tool for paint. no flame type, just hot air.

Hello pamgolmon: My name is Roger and i will answer your question. The 2-0 dual cam engine is a interference engine. This means if the engine jumps time at the timing belt. It will bend the valves. As for the timing marks on the camshafts. Their are no marks to be located. To set the timing marks on this engine requires special tools. This makes it expensive for not only the do it yourself mechanic but also the repair shops also. If the valves were bent you must pull the head for the repairs also.
I know this is not the answer you were hoping for but it is the only answer to give. Please rate the quality of the answer as this way we know your answer was correct. Please just ask if you need further help. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
