Where are the timing marks on a 2000 Escort ZX2 with a 2.0 Liter engine


There are no marks. You have to use a lock tool in the cams. Click on my profile and look at the how-to's I've written for instructions on replacing the timing belt on this car.

After changing a timing belt, I can't get the crankshaft to turn in order to set the timing marks.What may cause this ?


If your engine is equipped with interference valves. You probably are hitting the valves with the top of the piston. You have to make sure that crankshaft position is set first then cam gear.

Changed timing belt - won't start could i be 180


an easy way of checking if your timing is right, is to take off your rocker cover and turn the cam shaft until the cam lobes on no.1 cylinder are pointing straight up this means that the valves for no.1 are completely closed,now remove no. 1 spark plug put a long screw driver into the plug hole resting on the crown of the piston, now rotate the crank shaft and watch the screw driver rise to its highest point before its start to drop again, this called top dead centre ,now check your timing marks to see if they are alright or just refit belt using this method and u will be a 100%

I need the timing marks for a 2000 escort with sigle over head cam.


The timing marks are a arrow on your cam gear, and a dot on your cylinder head; align them.

Your crank gear has a tab, and the engine has a groove; align them.

After aligning the marks and putting your timing belt on, turn the engine 2 complete turns to insure the marks are still aligned; As long as the marks still align, you're done.

I hope this helps you, and if you need further assistance let me know.

2000 Ford Escort ZX2 hot, 2.0 Zetec eng.


a friend of mine set the crankshaft, it turns out that the key-way is on top and is the mark for the lower part. we looked in the haynes manual for the top cam-shaft's. we never had a cam-shaft alignment tool but found a scrap piece of metal that worked perfectly for the cam-shaft alignment. the timing belt is on one side of the engine and on the other side of the cam-shafts are slots where the cam-shaft alignment tool, you have a 25% chance of getting it right and we got lucky on the 1st try, thanx any way.

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.
