SOURCE: Belt Tensioner located on 2000 ford Escort zx2

On the right side of the pulleys, there should be 3 top, middle, and bottom. The middle, smaller one, is the tensioner.

SOURCE: where can i find the timing marks on 1998 ford escort zx2 ?

Hello pamgolmon: My name is Roger and i will answer your question. The 2-0 dual cam engine is a interference engine. This means if the engine jumps time at the timing belt. It will bend the valves. As for the timing marks on the camshafts. Their are no marks to be located. To set the timing marks on this engine requires special tools. This makes it expensive for not only the do it yourself mechanic but also the repair shops also. If the valves were bent you must pull the head for the repairs also.
I know this is not the answer you were hoping for but it is the only answer to give. Please rate the quality of the answer as this way we know your answer was correct. Please just ask if you need further help. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

SOURCE: I have a 2000 ford focus 2.0 zetec dual overhead

all Zetec engines (2.0 DOHC) are NOT interference engines. There are deep reliefs cut into the top of the piston to clear the valves when they are fully extended. There will be no valve damage if the timing belt breaks on a Zetec engine.

This is a non-interference engine. Anyone saying anything different is using an old book. Some Ford dealers might even tell you it is interference. There are reliefs cut into the top of the pistons to clear the valves if the belt breaks. There is a how-to posted here and on Team ZX2 .com

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

bring #1 piston to top dead center(TDC). pull #1 spark plug to sit on top of the #1 piston by inserting long screwdriver into the hole. then check the cam to the other end of the motor. there slots on both cams that should be lined up together so that can lay the bar across the end of the head to be able to insert into the hole.
cam and crankshaft are lined up now to replace timing belt.
and Ztech motors are no real timing marks.

I have a 2000 ford escort zx2 that has a code of po340, i wanted to know what needs to fixed and a good repair shop in my area.


It needs a timing belt. It has either stretched or jumped time. You can try replacing the cam sensor first, but despite the description, it usually means it is out of time. You'll want to make sure the cam sensor is plugged in (on the front right of the engine head) and that the VCT solenoid is plugged in (sticks out of the top left of the valve cover) and have it scanned again to see if you got any new codes like P138x.

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.
