Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Ford escort 1998 I changed teh timing belt at 150,000 mi. At 154,000 mi the timing belt jumped... why?
Is the belt shot?
Timing belts may stretch the first few hundred miles or so. Check for correct tension after the first 1000mi. Again you should change the belt tensioner. Consider a replacement water pump after 60-75k mi., since you are already paying labor costs to get to the water pump with the belt change.

This can be caused by not tensioning the belt corectly.When fitting a new belt you should allways replace the tensioner,and make sure the water pump pulley is in good working order.Its always wise to get your timming belt from the dealer.as others are nown to be faulty.Fit new belt follow manuel when doing so.good luck
