    SOURCE: where can i find the timing marks on 1998 ford escort zx2 ?

    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

    Hello, my name is Chris and I am having trouble figuring out what is wrong with my 2000 Ford escort zx2 s/r 2.0L DOHC. Recently my Check Engine Light came on and when I pulled the code from the computer it...


    That code is Camshaft Position Actuator Circuit (Bank 1).

    Depending on your troubleshooting skills, you will need to do pinout tests at the powertrain control module, variable cam timing vehicle harness, and variable cam timing solenoid.

    A troubleshooting flowchart can likely be obtained from a Mitchell's, Chilton's, or Motor's repair manual at your local library.

    I'm trying to install a new timing belt for my 1999 ford escort zx2 with a vct motor. I aligned the camshafts, did a full rotation and they came out of alignment. How do you align the camshafts with the...


    It is normal for the exhaust cam to be slightly off during a rotation because of the nature of the VCT mechanisim. It uses oil pressure to change the cam angle. Since there is no oil pressure with the engine off, it won't stop in the same place every time. Check the links below for more information:
