Question about 1999 Ford Escort
The timing belt broke in my car. My father in law has always fixed all of my cars for the past 10+ years. He put a new belt in and replaced a pulley, but now the car is out of time and he is having trouble putting it right.He says that he needs the sequence can any one help?
If you look on the right side of the cams (the side that doesn't have the timing belt on it) you will see at the end of the cams there are slots. When you have the crankshaft turned to TDC and you are on the compression cycle you will see the slots on the cams should line up. If you can get a piece of metal (that's the shape of a ruler) that's 5mm thick, you can slide it into the cam slots to line can cams up for compression TDC. If the cam slots line up, but are below the engine head, you are in the exhaust cycle and need to rotate the camshaft 360 degrees to get to the compression cycle. The cam slots should then be above the engine head so you can fit the metal 5mm alignment tool.
