Does the age of a person effect the reaction time
The easiest way to check timing gear (be it only gears, gears with chain or even sprockets with belt) is to open the distributor cap and place it out of the way so the distributor rotor can be seen. Next, using a socket on the crankshaft center bolt, rotate the engine in the direction it normally turns just about 30 degrees. Now mark with a crayon(or anything you have handy) the position of the distributor rotor to the base where the cap belongs and mark the crankshaft pully to engine block in an area easily visible. Finally, rotate the engine BACKWARDS very slowly until you see the distributor rotor begin to move...STOP right there. Now you'll look at the separation of the marks you made on the crank pully and block. If the distance is a lot (10 degrees or more) things are getting sloppy in there. At 25 deg or more, do a surgical/visual inspection, something's going to break.
if the timing belt breaks on a 1998 Ford Escort there will be no damage done to the engine. This is true for the 2-door and the 4-door versions even though they both have different engines. The only parts which may be damaged are the timing belt pulleys. These should be replaced when replacing the belt. The engines used in both versions of the 1998 escort are NON-INTERFERENCE engines. This means that when the belt breaks there is no way for the pistons to come in contact with the valves.
It certainly can be. If a piston touches an open valve, the results can be quite bad. In normal operation, the valves close whenever the piston is at the top of cycle. If the timing belt slips the valve might be in the way next time the piston comes up.
The answer above is incorrect for the Ford Escort zx2 2.0 model. The 2.0 model was made to be a "Non Interferance engine" which means, when the timing belt breaks it will not damage anything. The reason Ford did this, is because, the timing belt pullys are known for going out, and when they do, your belt breaks. My car's timing belt pullys went out, and my belt broke, and no damage. - Antwon00
Both answers above are correct there are two different engines fitted to the 98 ZX2
The double cam is a Non interferance engine and I believe it is rated at 130hp the single cam will be damaged and it is rated at 117hp
this above statment is wrong.. the zx2 came only in the 2.0 DOHC at 130hp there is no single cam zx2.. that would be the 1.9L from a regular escort... and also all escorts have had non- interference motors since '89
I put the correct answer for this question at the top
