Do I need to remove the crank pulley when replacing timing belt on a 1998 ford escort wagon and how do u remove the wheel well to gain access to the timing cover?


Yes, the crank pulley has to be removed to access the timing belt.
The plastic Wheelwell covers are held on with 10mm bolts, the actual metal wheelwell is welded to the subframe, firewall & core support and can't be removed.
To easily change the timing belt you have to put a floor jack under the oil pan (i recommend using a block of wood between the jack & oil pan to prevent damage), remove the Upper Motor Mount on the Right side of the car, and then use the jack to raise & lower the engine as needed to access each bolt.

I recently had timing belt and water pump changed on my 1988 944 with 1985 engine. Engine now has no oil pressure and engine rattles like crazy. Mechanic is lost on this one. Any help?


The crankshaft pulley bolt is loose. The crank bolt was removed to do the timing belt and was not tightened enough when the pulley was replaced. It must be very, very tight because it clamps the impeller of the oil pump inside the front cover of the engine. The impeller is not keyed to the crank and it relies solely on the clamping pressure of the bolt.

Focus Sport Underdrive Crank Pulley Installation This How-To Library article is for the FocusSport crank pulley, which as indicated on the FocusSport product information page, includes a 6061 aluminum lightweight crank underdrive pulley and a new Goodyear Gatorback accessory belt. The FocusSport crank pulley underdrives your accessories by 23%. This, in turn, decreases the drag on the engine, unleashing power that you never knew you had. And since the FocusSport (7.6 ounces) crank underdrive pulley is lighter than OEM (3 lbs. 4 ounces) crank pulley, you'll benefit from the weight reduction of rotating mass; resulting in a more responsive engine. FocusSport crank underdrive pulleys come in a red anodized finish. (Product description taken directly from the FocusSport product page...)

  1. Remove the plastic splash guard inside the right front fender well.
    • There are two 10mm bolts holding it to the fender.
    • After removing the bolts, it should pop right out.

  2. Remove right front wheel.

  3. Remove the bolt on the crank pulley
    • Use an impact wrench if you have access to one.
    • This bolt is a regular right-hand thread.

  4. Install the new pulley on the crank.
    • There is a keyway on the crank that the pulley must fit over.
    • Push it firmly into place by hand first, to avoid binding when you torque it.

  5. Torque the bolt to 85-91 lb-ft.

Can water pump be removed and re-installed W/O removing any pulleys on a 1988 Samari Suzuki.


No. As both the water pump pump pulley and crankshaft pulley both partially cover the timing belt cover, they have to be removed to get the timing belt cover and the timing belt off. The only bolt you DON'T need to undo (unless you want to change the front crankshaft oil seal), is the centre bolt holding the crankshaft timing belt sprocket on. Only the surrounding 4 or 5 bolts need to be removed so the crankshaft pulley can be removed.

99 ford ranger timing belt 2.5


sorry mate, you will have to remove the crankshaft pulley to be able to remove the cover to gain access to the belt.
If you can't gain access to the pulley bolt or bolts, you will have to remove the radiator, remember to save the coolant if you don't want to spend money on new.

1.If it is an automatic vehicle, remove the starter and block the engine at the ring gear while someone loosen the bolts. If it is a petrol engine, shift it into 3rd gear and hold the brakes while someone loosen the bolt or bolts.
2.Remove the pulley, if it does not move off easily you will need a puller to remove it, do not hit the pulley you will distort it or brake it.
3.Remove the covers and use a tippex pen to make reference marks on the pulleys and the block and head, even if you know how to set up the timing it is good practice to do so, if you get stuck you will be able to use the marks to line up the toothed pulleys to the marks.
4.Now remove the belt and the tensioner pulley ALWAYS REPLACE THE TENTIONER PULLEY the bearings will not last another belt service.
5.Pull the tensioner pulley against its spring and lock it up, this makes belt installment easier.

Install new belt and if possible replace crank and cam seals, its only good practice
