location C6 is CMP
It is a 1998 2 door ford escort zx2 but it is a 2.0L dohc zetec engine..I believe it was changed to this engine at some point before i bought it... it is slightly different and looks like this
sorry the image is not better
Ok well I couldnt seem to find the cmp where it said it was located but looks to be located as circled here.. under fuel rail.
Oh that would be awesome. I am pretty sure my engine has been replaced and that the 2.0L zetec that is in it is not original.
Thank you so much for your help. I am with out my usual mechanic and he assures me it should be an easy thing to change.
BTW here is a pic of what it looks like except mine has a cover over the spark plug wires on top of the engine
here is where it seems to be located. But if you can show me on here or a picture you send where its located I am pretty sure I can change it.
yes, please remove the puel pump relay and crank the engine untill it dies and runs out of fuel, doing this to relieve fuel pressure to avoid injury. the procedure out of the shop manual is below:
Disconnect the battery ground cable.
CAUTION: When installing fuel injector supply manifold, lubricate the injector O-rings lightly with engine oil XO-5W30-QSP or equivalent meeting Ford specification WSS-M2C153-G
this is the disconnect tool they are referring to, it is available at your local autoparts store if needed and shouldn't cost more than $10
Thank you it turns out it was not this but is the timing belt that has gone out.. Thank you for your assistance
This helped me replace the sensor...it was an easy in and out job but turns out thats not what is wrong with it. I will be going to a mechanic to get this fixed.
