There may be play in the alternator and when you installed new belt the circuit went open ! Check to see if you are getting 12 volts or more while running the engine ! If theres no voltage or its below 10 volts the car will not run ! Hope this helps !

98 ford escort sport makes a squeaking sound when running idle or when not accelarating the sounds comes from the passenger side of of the engine


Have you checked the belts attached to the alternator? A worn belt can squeak anytime, especially when wet and occasionally the bearings inside the pulleys squeak if not lubricated.

Timing belt cracked Engine in 98 Ford Escort


You can go to a shop that do this kind of work and find out.
Mine broke the timing belt and damage the head. I had a used head put on
It is not very hard to find a ford escort engine.Replacing the engine with a used one would be the cheapest thing to do but change the timing belt right away,
You can do some research on line to find out how much a engine cost.
You can call around where you live.
