2000 Ford Contour 2.0L 4 cylinder
120,000 miles

How are you doing today? IS the engine on a 2000 Ford Contour interference or non Interference engine? I'm trying get the timing correct on my 2000 ford contour 2.0L. I had set the piston number 1 at TDC using the screw driver, and used the alignment bar behind the cams to hold it in place, when I was changing the belts. I rotated the crank twice, and recheck the timing mark. I had put everything together. when I tryied to start the car it rotated a little and it stopped. IS This engine an interference or non interference engine. IF its an interference engine I could have damaged a valve. IF its a non interference engine I can try resetting the timing tile I get it right. your advice is appreciated

This is not an interference engine as far as the piston making contact with the valves but I believe it is possible for the valves to contact each other if the cams are out of synch.

Did you remove the alignment pin before cranking the engine?

I removed the pin by the crank and bar from the cam

Remember, to set this correctly, the pulleys have to be loose when the bar is aligned and tightened after everything is set.

If you can rotate it by had with the plugs removed, there shouldn't be a problem as far as the timing is concerned. There may be another reason for the locking up.

Today, I took the timing belt off, and took out the timing belt tensioner. As soon as I screwed it out it fail apart. I replaced it with another tensioner.
