    for the ignition timing?

    what are you trying to do. there are no "marks" if you are replacing the timing belt, you need special tools and you need to know what you are doing.

SOURCE: need to install a timing belt on a 2002 ford focus

No marks to align camshafts, set crankshaft at TDC, align camshaft as shown, to align, lobs on cylinder #1 have to be pointing out at 45 deg, on the other end of camshaft's will be a slot on each one insert some thing through both as shown, to hold camshaft's in place.

I took the timing belt off and didn't mark it i need a diagram on how to set the marking.


Here are some assistance for you I hope. Remove Your Timing Belt
  • 1

    Disengage the negative battery cable in all models.

  • 2

    Detach the passenger inner splash-shield and wheel cover, the accessory drive and timing belts, the tensioner and the crankshaft pulley.

  • 3

    Remove the spark plugs, catalytic converter and idler pulley in 2000 and older Ford Focuses. These models also require the crankshaft be turned to "Top Dead Center" (TOC) and a crankshaft timing peg be inserted. Turn the shaft to the right against the timing peg.

  • 4

    Undo the retaining fasteners and lift the timing belt cover off the engine. Align the crank and camshaft timing marks. Older models call for undoing the water pump pulley and valve cover before locking the camshaft in place.

  • 5

    Release the tensioner's bolt. Turn the arm to the right 14 degrees and place a 1/8 inch drill bit in the opening. This secures the belt tensioner in place.

  • 6

    Take the timing belt off.

Install Your Timing Belt
  • 1

    Replace the timing belt counterclockwise motion beginning at the crankshaft.

  • 2

    Unlock the tensioner. Recheck the timing marks by turning the crankshaft two rotations to the right.

  • 3

    Tauten the tensioner's pulley bolt to 15 to 22 foot pounds (20 to 30 Nm) in 2003 and younger models and to 17 to 20 foot pounds (22 to 28 Nm) in older Focuses. Remove the crankshaft timing peg. Reconnect the crankshaft pulley and secure to 81 to 96 foot pounds (110 to 130 Nm) and 81 to 89 foot pounds (110 to 120 Nm) respectively.

  • 4

    Replace the splash shield, front wheel, timing belt cover, accessory drive belt and tensioner and any other items that were disconnected.

  • 5

    Hook up the negative battery cable. Start the engine and check that the timing belt is functioning properly

Timing belt slipped on 2003 1.6 focus need the timing marks


there are no timing marks as such on the focus mate you have to lock the cams with a setting bar (to do this you need to remove the rocker cover and lock the cams with a locking bar)
the crank is locked up by removing a plug behind the oil pump on the back of the engine (the crank needs to be at top dead center on number 1 cylinder and this can be done by removing number 1 spark plug and using a long piece of welding wire or screwdriver, place in to the cylinder and turn over until the piston is at the top)
with the cams locked and the crank locked your engine will be timed up
please let me know if this has been of any help
cheers

Setting the timing


hope this helps- sounds like someone replaced your timing belt and when they replaced it, they were off by one a tooth or peg on the belt- buy a Haynes manual from Advance Auto parts or go to Advance Auto Parts and look for an OPENED 2003 Ford Focus Haynes. Read the part about installation of timing belts. You DO NOT have to remove the timing belt, just make certain it is correctly lined up with the proper marks. If you are a decent mechanic, you can do this yourself. Unlike cars in the 70's you cannot adjust the timing on today's Vehicles

Crankcase capacity for 2003 ford focus 2.0 liter split port engine


Hi,

To my knowledge, a 2003 Ford Focus 2.0 SPi engine would need 4 quarts of engine oil (roughly 3.78 liters). Incidentally, the Ford/Cosworth Zeta/Zetec engine would be needing 4.25 quarts (~4 liters).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
