97 escort 2.0 sohc..replaced the water pump,installed new timing belt, and found the tensioner was bad, allowing engine to jump time. I went through and put on tdc, aligned the marks and yet still no fire. I think the cam and the crank are 180 off from each other. Is there away I can assure that I am on the compression stroke and not the exhaust stroke, since both will push compression.
1997 Ford Escort LX sedan has a vibration/humming/pulsating coming from the driver's side front wheel that has gradually been worsening for probably the last 20,000 miles. New front tires 10,000 miles ago and tread wear is perfectly even. No play in the wheel whatsoever from side to side or up and down. All boots are intact. Any ideas? Thanks!

I am still driving my 1998 Ford Escort and overall very pleased but the last 5 years there has been a constant buzzing sound that only appears after 20 minutes of driving. Very loud, embarrassing and annoying. I haven't had it checked twice and know ones knows what it is. Afraid to have it looked at further for the labor/costs. The car is still running but the miles are piling up....looking forward to a new car soon. I have been told it could be an overworked bering....... ??
