Hi
Check the gearbox mount.
If the mount in good condition then get a gearbox specialist to check the box.

SOURCE: My 98 Escort ZX2 manual transmisson seems to shift gear hard!

Clutch may be smooth but this is a sign of the clutch needing replaced. Some of these models have a linkage adjustment under the hood. Others are hydrallic and need fluid. Look under the hood where the steering is and see which you have and address accordingly. Good luck. Check on costs of clutch replacement.

Titans are known for weak rear ends. Contact an independent shop that rebuilds truck transmissions; look in the Yellow Pages.have them rebuild it; it'll be done right. Trade the truck for a Toyota Tundra, Tacoma, Ford or Chevy.

Does this car have an interference motor?


ford escort/ focus engine 2.0 l spi sohc 1997-2004 has been identified as an intereference engine and that means very likely valve to piston damage
( auto data timing belt information )
note-- up to 2002 year Ford has not recommended a timing belt interval for changing
Ford has however recommended a replacement every 120.000 miles using the service history as a guide
however good professional trade practice recommends every 60.000 miles ( 100.00klms) and the replacement work should include replacement of the crank and cam shaft seals and idler pulleys involved ( the biggest destroyer of belts is oil)
recommended labor time is 2 hours
if the belt has broken then head removal and valve work will add up to 5 hours to that time

I have a 2001 ford escort zx2 and it seems as if the front wheels wobble at speed at or under 30 mph. The faster you go the wobble disappears. Is this the wheel bearing, loose lug nuts, or u-joint?


If the wobble is very noticeable at low speed I would first suspect the tyre or tyres. Start by changing each front tyre with the spare and see if that affects the symptoms.
I am assuming that you have checked that the wheel nuts are not loose?
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

I can't find the timing marks on cam gear s the gears are diffrent this is on a 2001 escort dohc


They don't have marks on the gears. You have to remove the valve cover and put a flat bar through the back ends of the cam shaft to lock them in place in the correct time.

Timing belt broke at hiway speed Is the motor shot ? 1998 Ford Escort


Maybe not. Not all engine have an interference problem. Many wil be fine after the belt is replaced and the valve train is retimed. Was there a lot of noise? If the engine just stopped without much fanfare you are Ok. Check with your mechanic or dealer to be specific.

The thermostat goes up to max when you are going about 63 miles per hour and above.water pump and all other items have been checked and are ok.,it only happens when you are on gas. The engine sensor and...


It sounds like you have a partial blockage in the cooliing system if it stayes at regular operating temperature at lower speeds. Placing it in first or second gear and driving at hiway speed RPM's will cause the the same temperature problem if this is the case.
