In 1998 they offered 2 engines both were 2.0L 4cylinders but one was a DOHC the 8th vin # is a 3 if you have this engine it is completely different but if you have a 1997 or 1998 2.0L SOHC vin # should be a P then they are the same engine, you should replace the water pump when replacing the timing belt, most belt failures are because of the water pump failing.if you need the procedure or timing mark positions let me know and i will get them to you but i will need your e-mail to send them to fixya dosent have enough space to load the images.

I have a 98 ford escort 2 liter it was running great while driving it just died the engine turns has spark fuel but will not fire


did you check your timing belt? Remove the top half of the timing cover. Spin the motor over with the starter see if the camshaft turns. No turn need belt. Leave comment.

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.

Do timing belts in 1994 Ford Escorts ever need replacing?


No they are not. The reason your manual does not saying anything about replacing the timing belt is because 9 times out of 10 most people do not know how to replace the timing belt and make sure that it is on properly and the timing is correct. Also the time belt should be changed around 115,000 miles. But it is never bad to go ahead and get it done if they already did it or are going to
