In Topic: ESCORT ZETEC PROBLEMS

when was the last cambelt change done if it wasn't tightened correctley it could easily jump a tooth, could you wip the covers of to check the timing marks


yeah i will then do you think that it could be the ht leads/plugs if they line up ? there is no smoke when it gets up to the area of the rev range that has the problems so hopefully the timing will be slightly out, thanks for your advice

get the timing checked to make sure it hasn't slipped a tooth as its getting close to cambelt renewall time,it could also be a high voltage breakdown (arching between plug connector and insulator)check for black marks to indicate any burning


Thanks for that i done the cambelt myself last time but f**k doing it again will let a garage do it this time! do you suggest maybe replacing the ht leads?? and plugs or something else? again regards for any info
