If you are only removing the timing belt cover 1st remove the negative battery cable from the battery, next remove the drive belt (alternator belt) and belt tensioner next remove the three nuts and three bolts from the timing belt cover then remove the cover, you mite have to finesse the cover a little to get it off from behind the crank pulley but it will come out .

Oil leaking onto my timing belt on a 99 ford escort lx 2.0 sohc small knocking from engine head was replaced and all gaskets misfire happens and then it shutsoff or sputter


if you have oil leaking that severe, chances are that one of your spark plug holes have oil in them causing your misfire..in that case it would sound that you need to replace your valve cover gasket
to check pull one by one you ignition wire up from valve cover and check for oil in hole and on boot

hope this helps

How to tighten up my timing belt on 1989 Ford Escort LX? because it make's a sqeaking noise.


Timing belts don't squeak unless they are worn out or one of the belts idler pulleys is bad or the tensioner is bad. You never adjust the timing belt unless it is new. PERIOD.

did you check your timing belt? Remove the top half of the timing cover. Spin the motor over with the starter see if the camshaft turns. No turn need belt. Leave comment.

My escort gti 98 is making a noise like a dry bearing round the top cams, only when engine is hot. help!!


Remove valve cover and to see if it look oily if it does more then likely that's not the noise. I would remove the upper timing belt cover and check the timing belt idler pulley bearing.

Installed a new timing belt. Old timing belt broke


not timed right. You have to remove the plug, and insert a straw through the spark plug hole so that you can see when the piston is all the way up
