I changed all 4 belts yesterday, Timing,alternator , compressor a/c orfan whatever. NOw it runs like ****, no power what so ever, runs always idlind at 1000 rpms. What happened. when I replaced timing belt I did NOT move anything,just put a new belt on. was I suppose to put the line on the belt to a certain spot? or just put belt on?


You think you didn't move anything...chances are something moved. Don't run the engine. Get a chilton or haynes manual and find the proper index locations for the pulleys and re-set the cam timing.Since the engine still runs, you may be able to ... 1987 Nissan Pickup

I have a 1991 G16a carby engine, and recently I changed the water pump, so I had to remove the timing belt. When I put everything back I set the timing at TDC on the crank pulley timing marks and had No1 cylinder correctly positioned on the combustion stroke. But now she runs great, then not, then ok, then bad. When it's bad it feels as though it's only running on 3 cylinders and yet all 4 are firing. Also, there is now a tappet rattle from the camshaft above No1 cylinder. Does the timing belt t

MY ACCORD HAS 119,000 MILES ON IT AND I HAD THIS WORK DONE ON THE CAR. 1. TUNE UP 2. RAIDIATOR FLUSH 3. TRANS SERVICE 4. BELTS CHANGED THE CAR RUNS GREAT BUT I AM BEING TOLD TO HAVE THE TIMING BELT CHANGED THAT'S FINE THIS WILL GET DONE BUT NOW THE MECHANIC TELLS ME THAT I SHOULD CHANGE THE WATER PUMP ALSO WITH OUT EVEN LOOKING AT THE CAR. IF I DO NOT CHANGE THE WATER PUMP IS THIS BAD FOR THE CAR IF IT'S RUNNING GOOD?


Well that is how I always sell a timing belt job also. The water pump is driven by the timing belt and it is very labor intensive to replace. I always replace the water pump also because you have to remove the timing belt to replace. I have had peopl ... 2004 Honda Accord

Changed timing belt on 2003 Kia Sorento 3.5 ,Timing marks are lined up.Engine starts up and runs smoothly BUT has no power..? If the timing was off by one tooth,Would the car start and run smoothly and still cause this problem? Ps,The belt did not brake,just was do to be changed.The car ran very well before...Thanks .Leland.


Being one tooth off on many engines will allow them to run well but lack power. In most cases you will find that the cam timing is retarded which changes the valve opening timing. When that happens, the engine will have gobs of low end power and will ... 2006 Kia Sorento

My 1985 Jetta with 1.8 gas engine quite suddenly started to run very rough with little power. I changed the fuel and air filters as well as the plugs,distributor cap and rotor and the wires. Any chance the timing belt slipped? The belt hasn't been changed in MANY miles and years. How do I check the timing to see if it is off? I can't find any timing references on-line.

Does the 2007 Malibu have a timing chain or belt? Also, what is the recommended service interval for changing plugs, 100,000 Miles? Getting ready to take a cross country trip in my friends car and he has lost the owner's manual. Car has 75,000 miles and I plan on changing the power belt, filters, oil, tanny fluid (never done), checking brake life and tire condition. Want to be sure we don't run into a problem with a timing belt issue. Thanks.


Your vehicle is equipped with a timing chain. There is no periodic maintenance schedule fr the timing chain.\015\012If your spark plugs have never been changed, now might be a perfect opportunity to change them. Ensure that you properly gap the ... 2007 Chevrolet Malibu SS Sedan New Cars

You obviously need to replace your TPS, and you may need a new belt tensioner as well. On these cars the timing belt setup is not about no 1 cylinder being top dead center. Here are the proper steps to do a timing belt on this vehicle:\015\012 ... 1996 Ford Escort 4 Door

We took our perfect running 2000 VW Jetta TDI to a local mechanic for a timing belt change, which we knew it was due for. Now, after the belt change, the car will suddenly quit running and acts like it has no power. It will usually start back up, but this happens intermittently and it doesn't make sense. No matter if you give it gas or not, it just stops. Any suggestions?


When I took my 2000 VW Jetta VR6 into the shop to get something fixed, I mentioned I wanted my timing belt replaced as well (It was due.), the mechanic said that they don't have a belt, and that the have a chain on them, and they should last the life ... 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

Changed the head gasket and timing belt on a 96 with 2.5 l doc. now it wont start. seems to be a timing issue, I can't see my timing mark with the timing light. Re aligned timing belt three times and am sure it's correct, still doesn't run. compression is between 170 to 182 psi. Cams are in the correct places, all the marks are lined up correctly. I Have fuel, and good spark. Resistence checked out on the crank and camshaft position sensors. I got continuity from them where the wiring ha


Remember that on a car's engine, the cams spin once for every revolution of the crank. It's possible that when you reassembled it, you put the distributor on 360 degrees out of phase. If you did so, the plugs would be firing on the exhaust stroke of ... Subaru Legacy

It is a 2.4. the timing belt was changed in July 2008, along with a valve job. the problem now is while driving the car the motor stopped running and wouldn't start but just whined. could the problem be a timing belt or the fuel pump. I understand that if the timing belt breaks, it could cause damage to the valves. etc so that means a head job again. please help me with some kinf of answers as I don't want to be taken by the mechanic as I live near tijuana mexico and the car is at there garage h

Changed the timing belt and camshaft sensor on a 2005 pt crusier pretty sure its timed correctly because the car seems to run fine and revs high with no problems although it still throws P0016 code even after replaced and erased (in garage analysis) when driven the car wants to die out,stutter,run bad...(road test analysis) I am hoping its not yet outta time which may be the case but not indicating such as 1 tooth,2 tooth,3 tooth off in garage analysis as it runs smooth... or am i missing some

Just changed waterpump in our 1997 Elantra, has 147,400 miles also changed timing belt and thermostat and thermostat housing gasket where heater hoses are. New antifreeze, was running engine and checking the heat to make sure thermostat was working. Then we noticed a water leak, so we changed the thermo gasket and housing gaskets again. Again we were running the engine while we were installing the antifreeze again. While running the engine after a few minutes we noticed again water was leaking,

I had the same problems exactly and I replaced the crank sensor, it is still acting like it wants to cut off. Like you said it runs great at night. I was told that it was the computer. I have not replaced it yet, because I really don't think that the ... 1996 Chrysler Cirrus

Timing belt while changing timing belt the back bank sprocket moved forward 1/4 turn. I rotated it one complete turn and finished the job. Now the engine runs very rough and you can tell it is out of time. How can I get the timing back?


First of all did you do the belt as maintenance or did the belt brake and you replaced it? if the belt broke chances are yo have bent valves for the engine to run rough. ... 1996 Pontiac Grand Prix

Tech says serpentine belt needed to be replaced. after changing the belt 2 more times, still cannot use air conditioner or defrost due to loud squealing from belt and it pulls power down from alternator. tension adjusted several times. upon starting the motor, it still squeals for a bit before it quits. I have been told it is probably the compressor going out but if this is the case, why is the thing squealing upon start up when the compressor is not running. what is going on with this?

3.5l engine, car shakes runs ruff, changed plugs,shaking lessened and car runs slightly better. took to auto zone had tested code P0344 possible problems cam sensor defective, timingbelt/out of trime, cylinder misfire...also another code said cylnder 5 missfire, also code P0340 cam sensor or timing whats the chance of it ust being the coil for #5, how involved is timing belt replacement or atleast setting the timing correct?


The chances are good for the number 5 coil needing replacement, but before i did anything else i would change that cam sensor, that could be causing your problem all the way around.. hope this helps... setting timing is a big drawn out job, i dont th ... 2003 Chrysler Concorde

1992 Plymouth Acclaim: 136,000 klms. Changed head gasket, timing belt, plugs, rotor cap/button, wires, air cleaner, & set timing. Now running rough (ran good since head gasket & timing belt replacement) It sounds like its ''wet'' and smoke coming out of the tailpipe. Would there be a sensor or something else? There is that little plate between the distributor and the cap which looks good... Thanks,


Depends what color smoke is coming out the tailpipe.wehite smoke and steam coming out of the pipe is going tobe water in combustion mixture,ie cylinders.if it belching black smoke and running rough its a fuel delivery problem,(too much fuel in air/fu ... 1992 Plymouth Acclaim

My belt in my sons cadillac was not working so we went to auto zone who changed the belt for us he started the car and it ran good for 5 seconds and it stop so he tought it might be the tensioner so we bought that and changed it again it work foir five seconds and stopped but this time a smoked a bit. Why can we get this belt to stay tight and keep running.


I would assume that the belt is the correct one for the engine that you have. The tensioner may be adjusted. If you installed the belt with the tensioner at the same position, you may need to adjust it. For an accurate measurement you will need a ... Cadillac Eldorado

In the fuel tank a tube with a filter on sits in a resovoir, not pressurised, how does it get to the filter at the front of the car?
