The Ford Escort timing belts are designed to require replacement approximately every 60, to 70, miles. If the belt breaks before being replaced, it can create timing problems and cause the engine to seize up. You can replace the timing belt in about 6 to 8 hours and keep the engine running properly while saving yourself the time and expense of having to take your vehicle into the shop to have the work done. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery of the Ford Escort with an open-end wrench and move the cable out of the way.
