OVERVIEW



Ford Escort Overview

The Ford ZX2 two-door coupe offers customers an entry-level priced coupe with a sporty appeal, a spirited ride and low operating costs. For 2000, ZX2 adds a performance S/R package and more options to allow customers to personalize their car.

An AM/FM stereo cassette, power mirrors, rear spoiler and rear window defroster all are now standard.

Safety

Placing a priority on safety, as with other Ford cars and light trucks, ZX2 has a new safety feature, "Belt-Minder," which reminds unbuckled drivers to buckle up by activating a warning light and sounding an intermittent tone during operation.

ZX2 also is equipped with a "glow-in-the-dark" trunk release lever to prevent trunk entrapment. Child safety seats are securely attached to the car’s package tray.

Other major safety features include dual air bags, dynamic side-impact protection and optional anti-lock brakes.

Powertrain

ZX2 is powered by a 2.0-liter DOHC Zetec engine with variable cam timing. The fuel-efficient engine is teamed with a choice of standard five-speed manual or optional four-speed automatic transmission. ZX2's engine delivers 130 horsepower at 5,750 rpm. The ZX2 powertrain is designed for low maintenance, with platinum-tipped spark plugs allowing a 100,000-mile tune-up interval under normal driving conditions with routine fluid and filter changes.

Customers can choose among three Option Groups, including a new S/R package:

S/R Package

* Performance clutch, exhaust, rear disc brakes and suspension parts
* Performance shifter/boot/knob
* Unique wheels/Z-rated tires (15-inch wheels; P205/55Z15 tires)
* Upgraded seats with ZX2 logo
* Perforated leather-wrapped steering wheel
* Fog lamps

Comfort Group

* Dual map lights
* Leather-wrapped steering wheel
* Speed control
* Tilt steering wheel

Power Group

* All-door remote keyless entry with anti-theft
* Power windows
* Power locks

Other options include leather sport bucket seats, a power-sliding moonroof and 14-inch chrome five-spoke wheels.

New exterior colors include Citrus Gold Clearcoat Metallic, Bright Atlantic Blue Clearcoat Metallic, Twilight Blue Clearcoat Metallic and, on the new S/R package, Zinc Yellow Clearcoat Metallic.

Manufacturing

ZX2 is built at Ford’s Hermosillo Assembly Plant in Mexico.

1998 ZX2\'s were the only year with factory installed mudflaps, and the rear bumper had embossed \"Escort ZX2\" on it (the easiest way to spot a \'98). A few other items unique to the 98 model: 100% Silver Chrome Reflectors in the Headlamps, Rubber gaskets surrounding the tail lamps, Small round hubcaps, Black side door guards, manual outside mirrors, am/fm radios w/o cassette, more sound deadining, defroster free rear windows. There were a total of four different wheel choices: 14\" steelies w/ a small center cap (base cool) 14\" steelies with a full plastic wheel cover (base hot, optional cool), 14\" 5 spoke alloys (optional on all but sport), 15\" alloy swirlies (sport package, optional on hot)

The base model 1998 ZX2 Cool had 14\" steel wheels with small round hubcaps, black side moulding trim, manual mirrors, no defroster wires in the rear window, black steering wheel, airbag, and column trim, am/fm radio only w/ a plastic cover over where the defroster button is. This is the most stripped ZX2 ever made. Under the hood, the 98\'s had an off white cam cover with most models having a black plastic bolt on spark plug cover that says \"Zetec\" and \"VCT\".

Seat trim on the Cool has either carpeted side lower cushion and no welting, and a flat top rear seat backrest, and the Hot/Sport has higher quality fabric on the lower cushion sides and welting around the edges (although is the same color/print as the std versions). 98\'s with optional remote locking came in 2 packages (one is drivers door only, the other is driver and passenger), option code 53A, 60A, 328A and 328B (see above). Also, on the early model 98\'s, the plastic trim panel below the rear window shelf is interior color instead of black, like on all later ZX2\'s. The 98\'s rear seat bottoms and backs fasten differently from the later ZX2\'s, so they\'re not directly interchangable. Also, most 98\'s rear seatback to trunk access release is a plastic button, where later models (mid 98 on) have a nylon pull strap. Another early model oddity: The first few months of production did not have the \"ZX2\" script on the top of the rear window.

The 1999 Ford ZX2 is again available in \"Cool\" or \"Hot\" editions, with a rear spoiler now available on the \"Cool\" series as an option. Cool model ZX2\'s now had body color side door guards, and a lower dash mounted remote trunk release button became standard. The small cap steelies were also dropped making the plastic full wheel covers the base fare. Air Cond; Rear Defroster, Power Mirrors, AM/FM stereo cassette, and both door remote keyless entry with panic alarm became standard on the \"Hot\".

Also new for 1999 on all ZX2\'s is new seat fabric with a ZX2 script embroidered on the optional Sport Package seats. Leather seats became an option on \"Hot\" models. Black Satin Metallic, Light Pine Green Metallic, and Lt. Denim Blue Metallic are replaced by a Black Clearcoat, Burnt Orange Metallic, Tropic Green Metallic, and Graphite Blue Metallic. A leather-wrapped steering wheel is added to the optional Sport Package. The engine cam cover went through a transformation in 1999. The first 99\'s had the 98\'s off white cam cover w/ plastic plugs inserted into the threaded holes that would normally attach the spark plug cover. Then, the new design cover came out, with exposed plug wires and \"Ford\" and \"VCT\" cast in raised lettering. The first ones were also painted off white, but then changed to satin black, which remained the same until the end (except for the 2000 S/R which used blue paint on the same design valve cover).

1999 Grouped Option Packages:
Comfort Group: Speed Control, Tilt steering column, Dual map lights.
Power Group: Power locks, Power side windows.
Sport Group: 15-inch aluminum wheels, Rear spoiler, Fog lamps, Bright exhaust tip, All-cloth seats with rear integrated head restraints, Leather-wrapped steering wheel, Sport badge on rear.

1999 Other Tidbits:
The rear bumper says only \"ZX2\" now, with a small \"Escort\" emblem under the left tail lamp (except the s/r). The 99\'s started getting a little lighter because trim and bracketry originally used were being omitted (shift tunnel support, extra clips on interior trim). The fuel pump rollover shutoff switch was moved from the trunk to the drivers side lower kick panel. Under the hood, 1999 midyear saw the change to a 6 wire MAF sensor, a different CCRM (to change the polarity of the cooling fan actuation) and a black valve cover w/ a \"VCT\" logo. S/R\'s were produced in June 1999, with about 20 or so getting a factory sunroof and power windows/cruise.

ZX2\'s now came in 2 flavors - Standard and S/R - the Cool, Hot, and Sport models were dropped. The Escort emblem on the rear of the car was also deleted, and fog lamps were not an option on the Non-S/R models (2000 S/R\'s had fog lamps as standard equipment). There was three wheel choices for 2000 - the 15\" swirlies, a chrome plated 14\" 5 spoke alloy, and the 2000 S/R only 15\" alloy \"Sunflower\" wheels (Borrowed from the 1999 Tracer, w/ Ford Emblems added). The standard ZX2 interiors were pretty much the same as the 1999\'s, except the Med. Graphite color was dropped as well as the Sport Pkg style seats. The S/R got its own specific charcoal fabric and print design, complete with the ZX2 logo embriodery and the integral rear headrests. The full wheel cover 14\" steelies and the 5 spoke 14\" silver alloys are history. Starting w/ model year 2000, there is an Emergency Trunk release handle inside the trunk and a \"Belt Minder\" safety feature.

Regarding the 2000 S/R, they were limited to a 2000 unit combined International production run (USA and Canada) with black and bright red added as color choices besides zinc yellow. New multi hole 15\" alloys replaced the 7 spoke units. Other changes made since the 99 S/R was the change from a Roush Intake to a blue Iceman Intake, blue paint on the valve cover, new pcm calibrations (both a green state XHG3 and a federal code CWQ3), a perforated leather steering wheel cover, ZX2 logo floor mats, a leather shift knob w/ shift pattern replaced the carbon/leather knob, red outside door emblems that said \"ZX2 S/R\" (the trunk emblem was red on yellow and black cars, silver on red cars), the sport model\'s fog lights and rear spoiler, and the rest of the urethane suspension parts from the 99\'s \"trunk kit\" were factory installed. There are reports that a few 2000 S/R\'s went out the door missing some of the correct parts, so there are those out there that left Ford w/o the correct clutches, urethane, or intake, etc.

2001 Models:
Little change occured in 2001 over the 2000 model. The S/R was dropped, and a little shuffling of colors and option packages.

2001 Optional Equipment
PowerGroup: Power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry. Requires air conditioning.
Comfort Group: Cruise control, tilt leather-wrapped steering wheel, map lights.
4-speed automatic transmission
Antilock brakes,
Air conditioning,

2002 Models:
Besides the addition of the fog lamps on the Premium package, a fuel cap indicator lamp and a functioning upshift lamp on the dash, I know of little else that is different from the 2001.

2003 models
lots of changes - new front bumper and grill is the obvious one, interior colors are the same but the seat fabric is new, the inside door pillar molding is changed, and a cd player is offered. New 5 spoke 15\" wheels are used on all models, and the rear seatback is reinforced (read: heavier).

2003 Ford ZX2: Prices & Equipment

The 2003 is the most changed ZX2 cosmetically since 1997. Besides the obvious front bumper/grille and alloy wheel change (no more swirlies), the interior recieved new fabrics, some of the trim parts were remolded (door pillar area), and a metra style climate cluster was incorporated on the models w/ the in dash CD player (a first for the ZX2). Smaller changes made were reinforcements to the folding rear seatbacks.

1998 ZX2's were the only year with factory installed mudflaps, and the rear bumper had embossed "Escort ZX2" on it (the easiest way to spot a '98 ). A few other items unique to the 98 model: 100% Silver Chrome Reflectors in the Headlamps, Rubber gaskets surrounding the tail lamps, Small round hubcaps, Black side door guards, manual outside mirrors, am/fm radios w/o cassette, more sound deadining, defroster free rear windows. There were a total of four different wheel choices: 14\" steelies w/ a small center cap (base cool) 14\" steelies with a full plastic wheel cover (base hot, optional cool), 14\" 5 spoke alloys (optional on all but sport), 15\" alloy swirlies (sport package, optional on hot)

The base model 1998 ZX2 Cool had 14" steel wheels with small round hubcaps, black side moulding trim, manual mirrors, no defroster wires in the rear window, black steering wheel, airbag, and column trim, am/fm radio only w/ a plastic cover over where the defroster button is. This is the most stripped ZX2 ever made. Under the hood, the 98's had an off white cam cover with most models having a black plastic bolt on spark plug cover that says "Zetec" and "VCT".

Mine is a '98 and does not have mudflaps; also it has power mirrors and a cassette player and a rear defrost (those must have been the only options put on the car). Just saying these things mentioned were optional.

The 1998 model year had a running change in Fall 1997, a few months after the spring 97 intro. Ford changed some standard features and options for the 'cool' model. The 14" baby hubcaps and black side trim were dropped in the fall in favor of full hubaps and body color trim, for example. Also, ATX and keyless entry was added as option for 'cool' models. Yes, the early 'cool' ZX2's were MTX only.

I have two separate 1998 brochures, with the spring 1997 intro and the fall running changes. Another oddity is a chrome version of the ZX2 wheel cover.

[2002 Models:
Besides the addition of the fog lamps on the Premium package, a fuel cap indicator lamp and a functioning upshift lamp on the dash, I know of little else that is different from the 2001.

My 2002 ZX2 had a upshift symbol but it never lit up.

I sent Jimmy a CD with all the factory spec books for all the years , magazine articles for the S/R , SVT, Fusion and anything ZX2 . Also all the paper work from Ford on the ZX2 starting in ' 96-'97 . I have all the color chip sheets for all the years . That is what was posted on the old site , I still have everything , probably need to get it all back up .

A neighbor has a 2003 in grey, and I see a few red or copper 03's sometimes on way to work.

In looking at a year 2000 vs. a 2001 ZX2 brochure, there is not much different. Mineral Grey was dropped and Citrus Gold was replaced by Sunray Gold. Also, the power group is standard.

Then for 2002 and 03, there are three trims, standard, deluxe, and premium.

I'm doing a motor swap in my ZX2. I ended up with a motor from a auto car and will be putting it in a manual.

So is there anyone out there that can tell me if there is any difference between the two motors? Like do I need to swap the cams or intake or injectors, or......????.



Thanks in advance,
John Mullins

Guys,
Thanks for the info. Indeed the flywheel sensor is different. The manual type protrudes further into the bellhousing, the auto version is virtually flush. I guess the flywheel sensor is the crank position sensor?? I can't find any other sensor, if that's incorrect I may need some more help.

Of all the things I was thinking about, a flywheel/crank position sensor wasn't even on the list. AND it would have been a royal bi**h after it was in the car. Apparently it changes from inside the clutch housing. I would have been a sick puppy.

Thanks again for the info, well done,

Oldnotdead :beernana:

02-12-2009, 08:47 AM
yeah that's correct... it determines the crank position with the flywheel...

and yes in fact it's just a housing..

oldn0tded
02-12-2009, 04:05 PM
"yes in fact it's just a housing"

Yeah, right again. Once I actually got in there to do the switch I saw that the sensor itself is identical, it's just in a different mount. Good save guys, thanks again.

This just proves these message boards are the ticket for getting info.

I foun dthe answer to this. No. S/R package in 200 required AC option.
