Get a Haynes or a Chilton manual, it'll tell you exactly how to do this. $15 to $20 at your FLAPS (Friendly Local Auto Parts Store).

I have a 1998 ford escort 1.6 16v zetec but cant set my timing how do i do it? help please! asap!


you can't set timing on that engine. No distributor. Timing is controlled by computer. If it is throwing a timing retarded code, then your timing belt needs replaced because your cam to crank timing is off.

Ford escort 1998 timing belt break bend a bunch of valves


I agree with hotchevy.

This is catastrophic for the engine and there will be damage beyond the inevitable bent valves. This is the cost of poor preventative maintenance.
Rebuilding the engine will be expensive as will installing a replacement unit. Get some quotes but I suggest it's probably not worth it given the market value of the vehicle.

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
