    As far as I know, the ZX2 comes with a 2.0L 4L, this is the procedure for the 2003 Ford Escort ZX2 2.0L MFI DOHC 4cyl...

    Remove passenger side tire, and plastic shield; remove lower covers under passenger side. Above power steering pump is
    smallest pulley. It is spring loaded tensioner for belt, put 13mm
    socket-rachet on it and turn bolt clockwise, thus relieving tension.

    Instal new belt in proper path and unload pulley again while slipping
    belt over this pulley. Takes some patience, once on you're done. Belt is easy to get to now, all auto
    adjusting.

    Inspection

    Inspect the drive belt for
    signs of glazing or cracking. A glazed belt will be perfectly smooth
    from slippage, while a good belt will have a slight texture of fabric
    visible. Cracks will usually start at the inner edge of the belt and run
    outward. All worn or damaged drive belts should be replaced
    immediately.





    Removal & Installation




    1. Raise and support the vehicle.


    2. Remove the side and lower splash shields as an assembly via the bolts.


    3. Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise and remove the drive belt.



    To install:





    1. Replace the drive belt and rotate the tensioner to its original position.


    2. Attach the splash shields

Water pump on a 2002 chrysler sebring and now am ready to put the timing belt on , when i took the old belt off both the cam gears turned slightly towards each other , please help , thank you


first up --is the timing belt going back in the same direction you took it off
if you don't know then get a new belt as an old belt running in the wrong direction to which it was running will fail very quickly and if that happens there is valve bending problems
next the timing marks face each other exactly( 9 and 3 oclock)

Need to change alternator


loosen tensioner bolt, but do not remove bolt. tensioner will drop down enough to get your belt back on. then lift tensioner back into position it was, re-tighten bolt. belt rides over top of of tensioner smooth pulley, note , sometimes the tensioner wears out and needs replaced, go to rockauto .com for best price. also, have the alternator bolts loosened when putting belt back on , this will help , but remember to re-tighten them after belt is on.

My belt slipped and i cant get it back on. do i need to loosen something or what?also the bottom right pulley is eating into the bracket what causes that?


hi this sounds like the actual bearings have gone in the pulley, hence the belt coming off, you will have to replace that pulley or what ever it is that the pulley is attached to ie power steering pump, water pump, etc, to put the belt back on after the repair has been done, you will need to loosen off one of the tensioner pulleys to put it back on...hope this helps

Putting the tension wheel back on


check to see if there is a square hole in the arm that supports the tension wheel. In most cases the wheel doesnot need to be removed to replace the belt. In your case you may need to replace the wheel on the arm and then relieve the tension on the arm while replacing the belt. I hope this helps.

You have to remove the engine covor. Then you have to remove the lifters off the camshaft. You then have to remove the Timing belt. The top gear on the timing belt has to be removed as well. then you pull the Seal out of the Camshaft. Then the Camshaft should come out. You put your new Camshaft in, then put the new seal on the camshaft. Then you put the gear back on. There is a hash mark inside of the gear, that needs to be top center. You then need to take the first spark plug out and put a screw driver in there. you then need to turn the bottom gear (where the timing belt goes) clockwise until you can feel the first cylinder come all the way up(you feel this with the screw driver). then you put the Timing Belt back on without moving any of the gears at all. The lifters have to be torqued on. They just cannot be put back on. There is a torque specification for those lifters, every vehicle is different. When you get those lifters back on, you put the lid to the engine back on. Then you are done. I hope this was helpful.
