Question about 1998 Ford Escort
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.
