First off I own a manual 99 ZX2 with 160,000 miles on it. As I was driving around today my engine died as I was getting ready to turn at an intersection. When I tried to restart it, it made a consistant crunchy sound. After pushing it out of the intersection into a gas station I was able to get a brother to help me tow it home. We took a closer look both seem to think it's the timing belt. I know it could be other things (like the starter) but I don't think so, this definitely sounds like it's turning the engine over but the engine is way out of sync. Now I've read online that the 2.0 Zetec engines are non-interference (thank the lord) but before I get too excited I wanted to confirm that with you pro's and also see if you have any advice as to replacing the timing belt. I've got the manual (just the one you get at autozone) for the Escorts but you guys may have some additional input. Anyways once again thanks in advance.
