Question about 1998 Ford Escort

2 Answers

I need to know the name of a part...

I'm replacing the timing belt on my ford escort zx2 1998 series because it has dry rot, but the wheel just above the water pump is busted and i need to know what it is so i can get it replaced or at least find it online to order it. It locked up and ruined the timing belt it's just a small part, if you look at the diagram on the 2.0L DOHC engine for the timing belt routing it's going to be the only one at the bottom with no teeth.

I have the same car with the same engine, I just got dont changing my belts and your water pump is on the serpintine belt. its one of your tensioners, its either the cam belt tensioner pulley or your serpentine belt tensioner pulley. I say this because you are talking about your timing belt. When you put the new one on, you cant move the top gear that is on the Cam, you cant move the bottom gear either, because if you do, your car is not going to start.

I think that would be the cam belt tensioner pulley.

I need the engine timing and the crank pulley torque specs.


Once you align the top and bottom timing marks, and install the belt and tight the belt tensioner, you are done, there is no distributor to adjust ignition timing, it is computer controlled. The torque for the crankshaft bolt is 80 foot pounds. Hope this helps, let me know.

How do i change the timing belt on a 1998 ford escort se?


http://www.ehow.com/how_4744187_change-timing-belt-ford-escort.html

Look at the link above. Do more research online. Consider buying the kit with the water pump and tensioner. Both should be changed the same time. You will need an electric or air impact wrench to remove the crankshaft pully bolt. Give yourself a full day to do it. It is alot of work but it can save you hundreds of dollars in labor.
Good Luck !

Water leak near front tyre on ford escort


Double check this by using a small container and catching some of what is dripping...If it is not green then it's your air conditioner condensation escaping as it's supposed to. If green then something important is leaking and you need to look further.

Do timing belts in 1994 Ford Escorts ever need replacing?


No they are not. The reason your manual does not saying anything about replacing the timing belt is because 9 times out of 10 most people do not know how to replace the timing belt and make sure that it is on properly and the timing is correct. Also the time belt should be changed around 115,000 miles. But it is never bad to go ahead and get it done if they already did it or are going to
