You need to realign the timings and refit the belt, a very complex operation. You will need a special camshaft alignment timing tool (No. T94P-6256-CH or equivalent) and a crankshaft Top Dead Center (TDC) timing peg tool (No. T97P-6000-A or equivalent).
This is the procedure from the manual:

Make sure the correct notch in the pulley is indexed to the lower cylinder block.
Position the crankshaft just prior to Top Dead Center (TDC).
If not already done, locate and remove the plug bolt by the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor (refer to the illustration) and install the TDC timing peg.
Rotate the crankshaft clockwise against the TDC peg.
Installation of the alignment tool into the exhaust camshaft may require the camshafts to be rotated clockwise.
Install the camshaft alignment tool on the back of the camshafts.
Install the timing belt and engage the timing belt tensioner tab into the upper timing cover backplate.
A 3/8 inch drive, 10mm, 2 inch torque adapter offset is required to tighten the tensioner bolt.
Using a 6mm Allen wrench, adjust the tensioner until the index marks are aligned and tighten the bolt to 17-20 ft. lbs. (22-28 Nm).
Rotate the crankshaft clockwise against the TDC alignment peg, then remove the camshaft alignment tool.
Remove the TDC peg tool and install the plug bolt.
Install the timing and valve covers.
Install the water pump pulley and the splash shield.
Install the spark plugs.
If the engine or the camshaft were not disturbed in any way, or the sprockets were not removed, perform the following procedure:
Install the timing belt and engage the timing belt tensioner tab into the upper timing cover backplate then use a 6mm Allen wrench to adjust the tensioner until the index marks are aligned and tighten the bolt to 17-20 ft. lbs. (22-28 Nm).
A 3/8 inch drive, 10mm, 2 inch torque adapter offset is required to tighten the tensioner bolt.
Rotate the crankshaft clockwise against the TDC alignment peg, then remove the camshaft alignment tool.
Remove the TDC peg tool and install the plug bolt then the timing and valve covers.

If the piston is hitting the valves would that be bent push rods


if your trying to get timing marks to line back up and the crankshaft stops turning, reverse direction of the crankshaft a little and then turn the camshaft a quarter turn.Repeat this process until timing marks are lined back up. not sure if this engine is an interference engine (valve bender) or not. Just dont force it past the stop or you could bend a valve for sure. after installing the timing belt, rotate the crankshaft two turns and recheck the timing marks on cam and crank. hope this helps, good luck.

Recently after replacing the timing belt on my '98 ford escort , it rough idling , any thoughts on what the problem could be? thank you


You have failed to get the Crankshaft and Overhead Camshaft pulleys in perfect alignment when the Belt was located and retensioned. Or the plug leads are on the wrong plug firing order.
You only have be 1 sprocket out on the Camshaft, or +/- degrees out on the Crankshaft, and it will sound like a sack of wrenches. There is also the liability, if it is too far out of Timing sync, there will be Piston on Valve contact. You are probably aware already, that both pulley and sprocket have timing marks, that are specifically marked, on the Engine block, and Cylinder head. Try this method again, without spark plugs in the engine, and be extra careful after positioning the NEW belt, not to let either crank pulley or camshaft sprocket move, when the tensioner is released GENTLY. If all looks OK, then rotate the engine BY HAND a couple of times, and check again to see if BOTH Timing marks are in sync. Then button up everything, replace the spark plugs, make sure the plug leads are on the correct plugs, and fire it up.

AS FAR AS A STEP-BY-STEP:
This type forum to answer that question would literally take dozens of pages. I would strongly suggest you purchase a Haynes or Chilton Manual available at most auto parts stores. You will need the Torque Specifications for each and every Bolt and Nut involved.
Let me know if this helped.

Timming belt replacement Ford 2001 dual cam


You have to leave all of the slack at the tensioner. Get the timing marks lined up on both of the cams and the crank. With the slack left at the tensioner, release the tensioner. It is okay if the marks move a little after this. Manually turn the engine crankshaft twice and then MAKE SURE THE MARKS LINE UP! If they do after two revolutions of the engine, you are good to go. This applies wether or not you are at DTC or not! Remember that!
Please remember to rate this solution.

Instruction on how to put timing belt on a 1991 ford escort


First put the car up on jackstands, remove the front left wheel. disconnect battery, take the drive belt off, remove the drive belt tensioner, put a floor jack under the engine with a block of wood or somthing to support it, remove the motor mount by taking the 3 bolts off of the body and the bolt out of the center of the mount. Remove the crankshaft pulley, this may require a pry bar. Take the bolts out of the front cover and remove it. Take the timing belt tensioner loose by loosening the 10mm bolt and rotating the tensioner with a hex key. remove the timing belt. I would also replace the tensioner while I was in there. Line the cam and crank up with the index marks, the cam has a pointer on the sprocket that lines up with a dimple behind the pulley. The crank has a keyway that lines up with a mark on the block. Install the timing belt and tension it making sure the marks do not move, then rotate the engine by hand 2 revolutions and make sure the marks line up again. After that reinstall everything in the order you removed it and fire it up. -Jared

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.

Changing timing belt


LINE THE POINT ON THE CAMSHAFT SPROCKET WITH THE DIMPLE IN THE HEAD, THEN THERE WILL BE A NOTCH IN THE CRANKSHAFT SPROCKET THAT LINES UP WITH THE NOTCH RIGHT ABOVE IT, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND IT! MAKE SURE IT IS THE SPROCKET AND NOT THE PULLEY CAUSE IF I REMEMBER RIGHT THEY AREN'T THE SAME.
