60000 miles is recommended. if it has oil on it then immediately and stop oil leak. 91 is a non interference engine which means if the belt goes it doesn't eat the valves.

Does this car have an interference motor?


ford escort/ focus engine 2.0 l spi sohc 1997-2004 has been identified as an intereference engine and that means very likely valve to piston damage
( auto data timing belt information )
note-- up to 2002 year Ford has not recommended a timing belt interval for changing
Ford has however recommended a replacement every 120.000 miles using the service history as a guide
however good professional trade practice recommends every 60.000 miles ( 100.00klms) and the replacement work should include replacement of the crank and cam shaft seals and idler pulleys involved ( the biggest destroyer of belts is oil)
recommended labor time is 2 hours
if the belt has broken then head removal and valve work will add up to 5 hours to that time

I have a ford escort Zx2 2000 and my water pump is leaking bad I have lost pressure when I hit my gas pedal inorder to replace my gas pump do I have to replace my timing belt as well?


If the water pump is leaking, it needs replacement. Timing belt is replaced at certain mileage intervals . You can have the belt inspected by a garage. The timing belt does not have to be changed to replace the water pump. If a timing belt is changed, then it is standard procedure to change the water pump, since the water pump is removed when replacing the timing belt.

Car cut off while driving...I've replaced serpintine belt, points and new gas...still will not start...


Hi, you may have a problem with your timing belt. This is a different belt than the serpentine belt that drives your engine accessories. The timing belt is located under a series of covers and connects your crankshaft and cam shaft(s) so that when your pistons come up and down, your intake and exhaust valves open at the appropriate times. You don't mention the mileage on your Escort, but typically the timing belt replacement interval is at 60,000 miles. Replacement of this belt, associated pulleys, and water pump is at least a $500 job at any service station.

Good luck.

At how many miles should i change my timing belt? 2002 ford escort 2.0 liter


According to the 1997-2002 Ford Escort Manual the average replacement interval is every 60,000 Miles (96,000 Kilometers). I unfortunately procrastinated and my timing belt snapped at 109,000 Miles and I had to go to the junk yard for a new engine. I had to replace a whole engine for not replacing a $15.00 belt.

When do i need to change my ford focus 18 tdci cam belt


It should be in your owners manual service intervals information,or i go by the 60k miles rule.Some cars now utilize a timing chain and gears like the Mazda 3,so it would be a good idea to call your local Ford dealer,and talk to the service department,as they can tell you the specifics as to whether your engine carries a belt or chain,and the service interval for timing belts.Timing chains generally don't wear out until around the 100k mark,but belts should be serviced at 60k miles as a general rule.
