If you go to rockauto.com and look at the engine section for a 2020 Escape, it shows replacement parts for a timing belt. So why that video/cartoon shows a chain, in reality it’s a belt.
I'll be honest: up until this point, I hadn't watched the video; the webpage showed an icon with the video, but when I clicked on the icon, nothing happened; there was an issue watching the video, so I skipped it.Look more carefully at the text within the video. It specifically says timing chain so there must be more than one version of the engine out there.
I'm curious if anyone else has experience with driving the 3 cylinder engines. I've always thought 3 cylinders were a little weird and would be prone to vibration. Of course with the deactivation on one cylinder it would almost be like a parallel twin.The Ford 3 cylinders arent bad form my experience. I test drove a manual Fiesta with the 1.0 ecoboost and it was quite a potent little three pot.
