confused Escort 1.8 turbo diesel injection timeing

After getting my 1997 escort back after it had had repairs compleated from an accident the engine would not iddle smoothly and vibrated. I returned it to the pannel shop who on sent me to the local Ford Agent.They carried out various checks but told me they could find nothing wrong. The next time I used the car I noticed the cold idle up was not working so back it went to the garage who fitted a new wax thermostat . Although the cold start now works the engine idles worse. After some investergation I find they altered the injection timeing.
Can anyone tell me what the timeing should be and how to check it?
Thanking you.
Regards Ivan.

Re: Escort 1.8 turbo diesel injection timeing

well first of all what the hell is a 1.8 diesel escort? the only diesel escorts i know of are 2.0 including my own so how did you acquire or think you acquired this? as for the timing diesels always idle ruff and i had to do alot of work on mine just to get it running. i have a 2.0L diesel wagon 86 is the year. all the information i have says that the diesel was only manufactured for two years and that was 85-87. unless you live outside the states or have done a major engine swap and i dunno why you would how... well explain it to me. how did you get this vehicle. my idling speed is about 750-800 rpm.

My Escort diesel is a Europen decent and I am in New Zealand . The only ones imported are the 1.8 model which were manufactured from 1990/2000

confused Re: Escort 1.8 turbo diesel injection timeing

I seem to have the same problem. I own a Ford Mondeo 1998 1.8TD"fully inported"(this motor is exactly the same as the Ford Escort 1.8TD). My camshaft snapped and due to the lack of spares the entire cylinder head had to be replaced. Now after searching the entire country for spares and going throug a GTREAT deal of trouble the motor was repaired but now it emmits huge clouds of thick black smoke (I was informed it's the injector timing/pump timing)and has almost no power and does not want to start using the starter motor(push start only). Now there is no-one in this country (South Africa) that has the technical knowhow on how to set the pump timing or the valve timing because the pump is electronicaly controlled.The Ford agent refferd me to Diesel/Electric workshop but they just said they DON'T have a clue where to beging or what to do. Now I sit with a car and NO-one to set the timing that just cost me alot of money to repair.

hello to all, I have just replaced the camshaft and a No3 bearing cap and two valves in an Escort 1.8 Diesel non turbo, but the the pump timing/Camshaft timing etc would be the same, look closely at the camshaft sprocket and the diesel pump sprocket, there you will see a small round hole(8mm or so) in both. if you insert a suitable drill bit or bolt through that hole it should line up with an identicle sized hole in the pump/rear plate and cylinder head, these two should both be aligned together, if not then your pump timing is incorrect.

Re: Escort 1.8 turbo diesel injection timeing

Hiya

My friend and I have changed the cam belt & fuel belt on my 1998 Ford Escort.

We also had to replace the timing cogs that keep the cam belt and fuel pump in line.

All went back on ok and we lined up the crank shaft and the cam shaft - finally lining up the fuel pump using a pin.

For some reason the idling is way off and the engine runs lumpy as hell.

I suggested that we just *guess* the timing which was a bit better but even so the power is down and engine is still idling badly.

There is another problem of the immobiliser light flashing when the engine is running - not sure if that requires a reset?

Any ideas on the timing and the light?

Thanks

Re: Escort 1.8 turbo diesel injection timeing

As honda_hornet is suggesting.......I have already heard that a similar alignment exists.
Can anyone tell me what are the disadvantages of installing a Turbo on an Escort 1.8Diesel apart from higher fuel consumption?

Dear 1.8d turbo Escort owners.After putting one of the first queries about the timing of the injector on line I have managed to find out enough information to set up my Escort better . I have found out that the idle up /cold start device alters the timing and can be adjusted at the pump .
"HAYNES" publish a work shop manual on the diesel Escort 1990-2000 . It is "Ford Escort and Orion " 1990 to 2000 (H to X registration) Diesel. Haynes book # 4081 ISBN 1 84425 081 4 . This book may be bought direct from haynes on www.haynes.co.uk.
On page 4A.4 fuel and exhaust systems in section 5 Idle speed check and adjustment turbo models , there is a step by step way of setting up this control .
After going through this procedure it bought my Escort back to life and now goes like it when I bought it.
Hope this will be of some use to some of you .
Regards
