yo!
try this:
http://www.autozone.com/servlet/UiB..._us/0900823d/80/13/c8/c5/0900823d8013c8c5.jsp
Figure 10; in pop-up diagram, look at upper right; appears there are (at least ) 2 off "generator" (alternator) - B/W cable & W/R cable...fusible Link symbol looks like an upright Coke can with 2 large dots, one each on top & bottom
also, Fig 13 for Fuel inject. (pump relay) fusible link
etc.


more info here:

1991–99 Escort/Tracer
scroll to CHASSIS ELECTRICAL
WIRING DIAGRAMS
Diagram 11; looks sim to above diagram(s)
good luck!

No you didn't miss anything . I needed the schematics for the fuseable links. I just can't find the problem. I tries to start so I had to rule out the timing belt. Everything turns over but no start. sounds like razors on glass . Not the noise you get with the starter going bad.

ok;

See if there is spark at any plug
The best way to perform this procedure is to use a spark tester (available at most automotive parts stores). Two types of spark testers are commonly available. The Neon Bulb type is connected to the spark plug wire and flashes with each ignition pulse. The Air Gap type must be adjusted to the individual spark plug gap specified for the engine. This type of tester allows the user to not only detect the presence of spark, but also the intensity (orange/yellow is weak, blue is strong).

Disconnect a spark plug wire at the spark plug end.
Connect the plug wire to the spark tester and ground the tester to an appropriate location on the engine.
Crank the engine and check for spark at the tester.
If spark exists at the tester, the ignition system is functioning properly.
If spark does not exist at the spark plug wire, remove the distributor cap and ensure the rotor is turning when the engine is cranked. IF NOT TURNING, TIMING BELT IS PROB broken.
If the rotor is turning, perform the spark test again using the ignition coil wire.
If spark does not exist at the ignition coil wire, test the ignition coil, and other distributor related components or wiring. Repair or replace components as necessary.

Since starter is turning, Right?...I figure timing belt.
Post again after checking for spark or cranking ngine and see if rotor in distr. is turning while cranking...don't crank too long to prevent engine damage.
