Timing Belts and Chains

Parent Category: Timing and Firing Orders
Timing belts and chains are used in an internal-combustion engine to synchronize the opening and closing of the engine’s valves. The belt also drives other components such as the pumps and alternator. The belt is made of fiberglass or Kevlar-reinforced rubber.

If you pay over 600$ you ripping yourself off. I own an autmotive shop in Livermore, CA and I just did a timing belt on my Sonata.
My experience with timing belts in general has been to have them replaced after 75,000 miles. I've had one break on a 1971 Pinto which luckily didn't cause any valve damage, but did require it to be towed home. I had the belt replaced on my '96 Prism LSI by a mechanic - It hasn't run right since, so...
The 1993 Mitsubishi Eclipse with the 1.8 liter engine is not on thelist of cars with interference engines. The 1989-1998 2.0 GalantEclipse cars were built with interference engines.
According to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etc . ) it IS NOT an interference engine , so no
It depends on the engine , some engines require a timing BELT or belts , some engines that I can think of have 1 , 2 , or 3 timing CHAINS
Too long to tell, better check here:
4 cylinders are so called interference engines. It means if your timing belt breaks your engine is basically done. And you will have to have major overhaul.
Answer . \nIf it had a timing belt, you would replace it at 90,000 miles. But this engine has a timing chain and does not have a belt.
yes , go to the computer on your local library on all data you will get all the inf. with graphics for hands on for diy
Timing is controlled by the computer, adjustment is not possible.
That ACTUALLY means that you probably didn't need to replace the timing chain in the first place. If you did it yourself, did you replace the tensioning rails? Check to see if they're worn. Note that one of the tensioning rails connects to a piston actuated tensioner assembly; if it isn't...
When you turn it over it will have an uneven speed. It'll go ur, ur whirr ur ur whirr whirr. Another way to tell if it is broken is to take the oil filler cap off and look in there with a lilght while someone turns the engine over. If the belt is broken you won't see the valve train turning. If you...

The timing is nonadjustable. Try changing the plugs and wires. Also you may have the new belt mis-aligned by one or two teeth!! The car will run but have a rough idle. Buy a Service Manual for the alignment procedure.
?If a timing belt or chain breaks while the engine is running the engine will be severely damaged and some of the valves will probably bend and damage the pistons. A timing best needs to be replaced BEFORE it reaches the end of its life and breaks. Car manuals make this clear.
Connect a timing light, loosen the bolt on the distributor and turn it. If you have a model that is contolled by the EMM, you can only adjust the clearance of the cam and crank positions sensors. The rest is controlled by the computer and is determined by the software. Note that adjusting the...
the water pump is located next to the throttle body. there is no reason to set the timing.
307 2.0Ltr. recommended intervals are. replace at 96,000 miles under normal driving conditions. or. replace at 80,000 miles under adverse driving conditions.

It has a timing belt, and the water pump is driven by the same belt. Replace the water pump at the same time you replace the belt. This is an interference engine and as such if the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. Replace the belt and pump at 102,000 miles.
Every 4 years, or 40,000 miles, which ever come first.
No , it has a timing belt . Recommended to change every 90,000 miles . Also , it is an interference engine
By changing those parameters in the engine ECM.
The governed speed is programmed into the motor's ECM, and requires reprogramming by a technician with the appropriate NexIQ box. If you're in a country where the speed settings are mandated under law, you'll find this a bit difficult to accomplish.

Yes , it's an interference engine , according to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etc. )
Every 90k miles just like a timing belt. You can go over but it will stretch and jump teethes screwing up your timing.
The timing belt itself can not hit the valve unless you put it inside the intake manifold. If the belt breaks on a 2.0L it will almost always bend valves. The 2.4L and 2.5L very seldom bend valves.
Answer . These have a timing belt . They stretch out and yours is old . If you can not time it or it is mis firing for no other reason , then it is most likely bad .
On a 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer ( yes ) Both the 4.2 litre six cylinder engine and the 5.3 litre V8 engine have a timing CHAIN
80,000K miles would be safe or 10 years, I assume
Some are, some aren't. We need to know which specific engine you are talking about.
Answer . I just had my timing belt changed for $350. This included replacing the water pump. \n. \nSimce the water pump costs about $40 and requires the same labor as a timing belt change, it's wll worth haveing done at the same time. My Miata is a 2000 SE, the cost should be close as the work is...

According to my Honda service guy, the 2007 Honda Civic timing belt does not have to be changed till 105,000 miles
If you're referring to cam timing you don't. That's set when the belt is installed by matching up timing marks on the cam drive wheels and the crankshaft. If any of those marks is off even by a single notch in the belt the engine won't run correctly. If you're referring to ignition timing, you...

Look at the inside and top of the plastic timing cover that goes over the top of the engine where spark plugs are. (This is the backside if you have the face of timing belt exposed). There should be two notches on the underside of the top of plastic cover. Line up the raised line on each cam with...

chains do not wear out as fast as belts. they also give you more accurate timing because they don't stretch as much as a belt will.
It does not have a belt, it has a chain.
Yes. The timing chain is INSIDE the engine and is constantly bathed in oil. Under normal conditions it should last as long as the rest of the engine.
If you're referring to auxiliary (12v) power there are two. One in the front storage compartment below the dash and another in the center console. Both are switched but can easily be modified to become unswitched if you need power with the key off. If you're referring to an auxiliary audio port the...
