Answers :

If this happened you bent the valves in the engine and the cylinder head must be removed, here are full instructions for a timing belt replacement.
\015\012
\015\012Required tools:
\015\01213mm open end wrench 10mm shallow and deep socket 8mm socket long flathead screwdriver 17mm deep socket T50 torx socket 1/4", 3/8ths and 1/2" ratchets and extensions E10 inverted torx sockets 6mm Allen wrench 15mm open end wrench 7mm socket 12mm open end wrench 14mm socket 12mm socket 8mm, 9mm and 10mm Allen head sockets 19mm socket pry bar needle nose pliers
\015\012If you are doing this because your timing belt broke you will also need to buy a complete cylinder head, head gasket set, and both idler pulleys. ALL DAEWOO MODELS WILL BREAK THE INTAKE AND EXHAUST VALVES WHEN THE TIMING BELT BREAKS.
\015\012Start by removing the air cleaner assembly from the throttle body, remove the air filter and housing jack up the vehicle and remove the wheel, remove the plastic shielding in front of the accessory drive belt assembly, remove the accessory drive belt, place a jack with a block of wood on top underneath the engine oil pan remove the front engine mount, remove the crank shaft pulley ( the 4 Allen head bolts only not the 17mm bolt in the center.) remove the metal plate behind the engine mount bracket on the engine, remove the plastic timing belt cover 3 clips on top 2 10mm bolts on bottom. Rotate the engine until the #1 cyl. is at Top Dead Center on the compression stroke or line up the crankshaft timing mark with the mark on the inner timing belt cover ( notch in cover with notch in pulley) on the camshaft pulleys -- ( intake cam line up the line on the pulley with the line on the inner cover)( exhaust cam line up the arrow on the pulley with the arrow on the inner cover) loosen the 13mm bolt in the belt tensioner and using the Allen wrench rotate the tab until there is slack in the belt. Remove the belt. At this time I would recommend you replace the water pump, both plastic idler pulleys as they tend to overheat and lockup, and the belt tensioner. Make sure all your marks are lined up, you may need a helper to hold the Exhaust Cam in place as it tends to move during belt installation. Put the timing belt underneath the crankshaft pulley, install the belt leaving the intake cam for last and NO BELT SLACK on the right side between the crank and the exhaust cam. Once the belt is installed rotate the crankshaft over 2 revolutions and make sure is rotates freely, and your timing marks are aligned perfectly if not the engine will not run properly, tension the belt as needed. Installation is the same as removal.

\015\012To clarify, on the DOHC engine, the intake cam gear has a line on it, and the exhaust cam gear has an arrow on it. These should be lined up with the corresponding line and arrow on the VALVE COVER, pointing straight up. I just went through this process over the weekend, and spent quite a bit of time looking for these marking as I had removed the valve cover. Once I found them, it was plain and simple.
\015\012In addition, be sure to not over tighten the belt when reinstalling. The tensioner has markings on it for "old" and "new". DO NOT adjust past "new", as the car will sound like a jet engine, and the belt will not last for very long.
\015\012One more item that you may as well replace while you are in there is the cam position sensor if you have not already, as there have been issues with them, and the timing housing has to be opened to get to it

You may have a serious problem (timing belt tensioner). This tensioner keeps the belt 'taut' so it won't jump time. Daewoo engines are 'interferrence' engines (this means if the valve timing is 'off' (out of syncronization) you can damage/bend the valves in the head -- valve timing (timing belt ensures this). The solution is to take the vehicle into the shop and have it diagnosed to be sure/to know if any damage has occured -- if none, replace the tensioner... it's pretty simple to do, if you have the service manual.

Timing Tensioner Hi Again, Well I found out it's not a rod bearing going out, the timing tensioner bolt broke. Now my problem is, how do i get the rest of the bolt out? I bought a new tensioner and bolt to replace it, also a new water pump and timing belt. My husband drilled the old bolt and used an easy out, but the old bolt isn't budging, he sprayed it with ez blaster to try and loosen it but that didn't work either, sooo anyone got any other suggestions? Thanks a bunch for any help.


It has been necessary to heat(hot) the old stud in order to free it, try a bolt extractor rather than an easy out worse case scenario would be to drill out the bolt to almost the diameter of the hole, if you damage the threads you may have to chase n ... 1994 Dodge Caravan

Hi I have a Audi A4 which the tensioner bolt broke and this made the timing belt become loose, replaced with new tensioner and set the timing up, car wont start, removed the rocker head cover and all the input valves are down does this mean that the valves are all damaged, the car is 20 valve 1.8.


If the intake valves are down you will have to remove the head and replace the valves. A compression test will confirm the issue. If the fact that the motor turns over to fast is not enough to convince you. Some motors are designed not to bend the va ... Audi A4

2000 NB 1.8 L Turbo Had the timing belt, waterpump and tensioner replaced New in Dec 05. 91,000 k Was told today that the belt is cracking and waterpump is leaking. 157,000k. How long do waterpumps last, I bought a one with an steel impeller. Could belt be broken down by coolant? Should I bring it back to VW and get them to fix it? I did not see the old components when they replaced them, could they have not changed them? I don't know what to do as I cannot afford a new car and don't want this

Tensioner When my 2001 Audi A4 Quattro had 70k I had the timing chain tensioner replaced. Shortly after I had the timing belt replaced. I recently got a letter stating there was a class action lawsuit and I may be entitled to a refund for timing belt and timing belt tensioner problems. My question is...what is a camshaft tensioner? I have read online and cannot determine if this is related to the timing belt and if I should try to get this reimbursed also? Thanks! Jenny

My o6 Corvette's crank pulley has moved forward. I was told the pin may have come loose or the bolt may be broken. A lot of Vette's have had this problem can I drive the car until it's fixed there is no noise and the only reason I noticed it was because the belts were riding forward on the tensioner pulley. Can I just have it tightened or will I need to get a new bolt and pulley.


The balance is bad it's self, no pin no broken bolt. I wouldn't drive on it. The belts will have lots of extra wear and may brake. This is not a job that can be done in your drive way. The craddle needs to come down to move the steering rack to b ... 2006 Chevrolet Corvette

It doesn't happen everytime but the first time I start my Honda Pilot in the morning it makes a squealing noise. It's a one time squeal and stops. Had the alternator belt replaced and 3 days later the tensioner(?) bolt sheered off. That was replaced and now 3 days later I started it up and it made the same noise.


The noise is the alternator belt, what maybe going on is you need an alternator. it could be that there is a bearing that is ceasing up when it cools down and when you start it up it takes a m ... 2009 Honda Pilot
