Timing marks do not line up after you rotate the engine. What they do is have an even number of teeth on the gears and an odd number of teeth on the belt. If they were both even, the belt would wear down quicker from the gear hitting on the same spot. When you rotate the engine over one time you will see the mark on the belt moves one tooth ahead. With each rotation it moves farther away.

using a timing light, watch the light on the timing mark and if it is all over the place and not steady on the mark then that indicates a worn shaft and bushes in the distributor
use carbon resistance plug leads that have thick insulation( (not el-cheapo leads ) modern plugs are designed to run carbon leads
run the fault codes as the problem may be in the air /fuel control sensors and not the distributor or crank. cam position sensors

02 ford escape V6 what is positions of the camshaft sprocket timing marks and the crankshaft keyway

The camshaft and Crank mark (key way) should be pointing at each other (directly aligned with each other).
ie. The Camshaft mark will be point directly downward toward the crank and the crank mark (key way) will be pointing directly upward toward the camshaft.

Sounds like it may be short of fluids. Also recheck all the small hose connections for leaks.

I'm russian. I've got Ford Escape XLT 2005 v6 3.0 and I can't find engine sequence/engine number/or product sequence number on the engine. Please, help me to find it.

we have the same problem here in spain with american built vehicles ,When i come to do the paperwork and their is no engine number and the spanish authorities insist on numbers on everything and three copies of it all with stamps on.So when i get a crysler gran voyager or ford mercury with no chassis number stamped in the actual chassis ,just a silly plate in the dash which means nothing here .I do a bit of doctoring before the vehicle goes for its mechanical inspection and they evan measure it for height and width and length and they look for the stamped chassis number which on all american vehicles i take to the test and they are always in the same place .Drivers side on top of suspension ,and engine number stamped on a nice area of the block,thats accessable ,if no engine number exists then use the last 6 numbers of the chassis number .----know what i mean
