Is the 2.0 motor in the 99 escort the same basic motor as the 2.0 used in the focus? Thanks

uses the earlier Zetec "Silvertop" engine.
The differences are solid lifters as opposed to hydraulic, revised cambelt routing, shorter pistons and a few other things.

Another difference, at least in the US (and probably Canada), is that the only '99 Escort to get the Zetec engine was the ZX2 Sport Coupe. The rest of the '99 Escort models got the SPI 8 valve engine.
