Hello. The timing belt broke on my Ford Escort while the car was idling in my driveway. I'm told if my car has an interference engine type that the valves will have been damaged (making repair too exensive). Can anyone tell me if my engine is an interference type? If not, I can get it fixed for a reasonable price. Otherwise I will have to dump the car. Thanks. Pete

how do i time a 1992 ford escort gt

Engine Type L4, Engine Size 1.9L/116, manual tran, no mods.
When running at highway speeds, while accelerating to increase speed, engine cuts back as if governed, sometimes to the point of stalling, and degrades to 40 MPH and unable to speed up unless throttle is lighty touched. Codes pulled, P1443, P0420 and P1131, lack of Heated O2 switch 1, Evac vacuum system purge or VMV fault, cat system below treshold bank 1.

Recently fuel filter and fuel pump was changed along with the removal of approx. 2.5 cups of sugar. most vacuum lines replaced, new plugs and wires, properly gapped. No abnormal noises from engine (ticking, clanking, etc...) installed locking gas cap, when opened indicates negative air pressure inside fuel tank (air suction). Clean oil, air filter, good battery and charging system. Cooling system cleaned and parts replaced.

What could be causing this lack of power, what should I do to diagnose, and repair this problem.

it has a knocking sound when started for about 15-20 minutes then the sound goes away no dtc when scaned it sounds deep in engine when it knocks.

Checked spark and it's good. plug gap seems quite large. looks like .125.
All pulley's seem to spin OK.
Checked fuel pump fuse and looks OK.

What is the best way to get a torque converter replaced/repaired. Check engine light says 1744 code. Need to pass state inspection.

we replaced the thermostat because someone suggested this could be the problem, but it doesnt help. when you start it it revs high for a while, if not the whole time. and then after driving when you put it into park, reverse, or nuetral it starts to rev up really high and just keeps going up until you shut it off. but then other times its just fine and idles normal

We recently had the tie rods and ball joints replaced. it makes this creaky noise, like an old rocking chair, over bumps and while stopping-but not all of the time. also, while going any speed it makes a squeaky noise from the tire it sounds like, i dunno if something could be stuck in there somewhere or what this could be.
