Snapped Cam Belt
Posted 30 July 2011 - 11:04 PM
the cam belt snapped today on my '97 1.4i escort,i was at the time just pulling into a space in a car park so at max was only doing 5mph.
there was no noise,bangs or rattles it just died,as if it had ran out of fuel,or stalled.
however i did try and turn it over and try to start it before i knew it was the belt,it turned over fine still with no noises.
in your vast wisdom is the outcome looking very hopefull,or is escort doomed?
any advice welcome as im not mechanically minded.
