Question about 2000 Ford Escort

1 Answer

Starter "clicks" but will not start.. Had starter tested, it's fine

The serpentine belt broke on my 2000 ford escort ZX2. We replaced the belt, and then car wouldn't start. Starter would click, but nothing else. Had the starter tested, it's fine. Any suggestions to what else it could be?

The belt which you have recently fitted is over tight which is not allowing the motor to run so try to fit a belt by making it somewat loose which will make the motor run

2000 ford escort zx2 quit running on the wife this morning still has electric\r\npower starter sounds like it turns but it will not start dont sound like ti turns motor over never heard of a start problem...


Pull the upper timing belt cover, just some 8mm bolts, and verify the if the engine is turning or not. If the timing belt breaks it will sound like the engine is spinning faster with the starter than normal. The great thing is that these engines are non interference and will not suffer valve damage if the belt breaks. If the engine is not turning with the starter then you have a bad solenoid in the starter and it will have to be replaced. You can check my profile for information on how to do the timing belt yourself if it comes to that.

Serpentine belt replacement


2.0L Engines
See Figures 11, 12 and 13
The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner.
Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension.
The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.
