Sounds like metal tapping and really rough shakes when car is running. It died on me then cranked it up and it starting shaking and heard metal tapping. sounds like a baseball card in bicycle spoke

You may have a valve spring broken,or the timing has jumped,do not try and start it again,have the timing belt checked first cause it can bend a valve,if it hasn`t already.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you

Can you bend valves when belt brakes 2.5

Yes you can bend valves when the timing belt breaks. Without knowing the car call your dealer up and ask them if this is a problem for your year and make a model car. European and Japanese cars and also high performance cars are more likely to have this problem. But not all cars for instance most Ford escorts do not have valve interference problems. But if you replace the timing belt and the car Mises or backfires you probably have a bent valve. And you would need a valve job that this point. Good luck.

OK one guys says the 1.9 ford escort engine is an

94 1.9 is not an interference engine. If the timing belt breaks and the engine were to turn over it will not bend the valves. The older engines in the 1980's bent valves.

Ford escort 1998 timing belt break bend a bunch of valves

I agree with hotchevy.

This is catastrophic for the engine and there will be damage beyond the inevitable bent valves. This is the cost of poor preventative maintenance.
Rebuilding the engine will be expensive as will installing a replacement unit. Get some quotes but I suggest it's probably not worth it given the market value of the vehicle.

Supertine belt diagram Ford Escort ZX2 1999 Old brken off now replacing it with new but no picture or diagram showing how its to be installed properly.

If timing belt broke when the engine was running then a belt wont fix your problem as when the belt brakes the valves stop straight away and the crankshaft will still turn over at least 4to6 times adn in that time could AND would bend a couple of valves at least.if
not a lot more problems BUT if you still go ahead with fitting the belt then all the casings are marked to fit the belt and the keyway in crankshaft is always at 12 oclock to start with.. Ron

Timing Belt Replacement+Diagram

No it will NOT bend valves on this particular engine, if it goes out of time. I would replace BOTH the timing belt and the drive belt at the same time, since both are very inexpensive, even from the Ford dealer. Line up both timing marks on both the cam and crank sprockets in the 12 o'clock position. The marks are very easy to see, once you remove the timing belt cover. Hope this helps.
