Is there a mileage guideline for changing a timing belt in a 1994 Escort with a 1.9 liter engine. I would like to change the belt myself but am just a do it yourselfer not a professional, is this recomended or should i leave it for a professional. Also is there any internet sites that will show a step by step procedure on how to do this.
Thanks in advance.

I believe they fail at about 60,000 miles or so. It's a belt, not a chain, so it's easy--just pull the old one off, and put the new one on.

I would agree w/a 60 k mileage service.
I would also caution that, if Ford has not changed since the 80's , in the design of Escorts , the timing belt R&R was a 6 hr job. I found the first one I did (an 86) was easier than some because it had a standard shift (which helps when torquing the crankshaft pulley bolt on re-assembly). I also learned that a crude sounding method was being adopted by independant garages here in Maine, the crank bolt could be accessed by boring a hole thru the uni body in the R/F wheel well area. the stamped steel wrench Ford charged ab't 20 dollars for never served well in my career. I did like the weird 10mm wrech they sold to acess the Water pump bolts ( Water Pump tensions the belt, and , it is advisable to "thow one on" whilst in the neighborhood of the timing belt...
Seems my love of owning another Escort faded after working on them for the public, but now I am trying to resurrect a 1989 !
CIAO, and any ??? , just holler! Can be reached @ kent_alan@ hotmail.com
