def looks like the chrysler 2.2 but it could be the 2.0 diesel as I've never seen one in the engine bay of an Escort to this date. :D

whats wrong with it? i bet that engine doesn't wind out to 7k rpm. but there has to be a somewhat good reason he put that engine into that car. (the only thing good on that car is the deck...hate to see a body in that bad of shape)

Diesel Escorts, particularly estates (wagons?) are common here and because of the extortionate price of petrol (gas?) are popular. Diesels were always thought of as sluggish and problematic but, I've been told by those who have them, are a different kettle of fish these days.

Guys, look at the rest of the engine bay... I don't think he meant to throw that pic on that page.. certainly not a 2nd gen pic.

Yep, thats a mopar. old carburated 2.2L. If you didn't expect them to be a race car the 2.2L actually had a great reputation for lasting 200,000miles. now the tranny was another story....

"On May-18-03 at 18:21:58 PDT, seller added the following information:
PLEASE NOTE... The picture of the engine listed on this auction is NOT CORRECT. It is actually a picture of a different vehicle, and I will post a new photo tomorrow. I apologize for the inconvenience. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me."

better question is, is that the new picture? :?
