I just got done doing this on mine! be aware though, mine dosen't have air conditioning! and it is a 97 jx! First, you have to loosen the power steering pump, it has a swing bolt on top and a short bolt located right behind the power steering pully. You will need a 3/8 socket wrench with a 12mm socket and fit it between the spaces on the pulley as the bolt is only accessed from the front of the pump. this bolt is just under the pulley shaft. You can see the bolt from under the car. My pump was set at the lowest point of swing and then had a belt put on (factory). I had to pry it off! I replaced it with the next size up so that putting on the new one would be no problem. The other belt is easier, you have to loosen the top swing bolt on the alternator and the bottom bolt, then just loosen the alternator and the belt will come off. NOTE: you need to use the 3/8 on this one too and the 12mm socket if you can, but be aware that the engine mount is right in front of the bottom bolt and gives you very little room for movement you will need to be on that bolt straight or you risk rounding off the bolt. these bolts seem pretty soft. well i because i didnt have this info, i found out the hard way!!!!!!!!!

check if you have fuel and spark it needs both to work

User Avatar

YES, as long as both engines are a 1.6L 8V then the ECM's are the same.

If they're both the 1.0 and either both automatic or both stick, it should. If one's an auto and other stick, it won't work because the crank shaft pilot holes are not the same size.

They are both a great phone, but I've had the sidekick 2008 and the sidekick lx, they are fun and I would definitely recommend the sidekick.

User Avatar

you probobly don't want to know... you have to remove the front differential! or you can pull the whole engine...both are equally daunting tasks.

Toyota Echos have a timing chain rather than a timing belt so there is no need to change it.

there are 2 systems. in 1995 , the car was sold with both r12 and r134, different major parts. so are not interchangeable. 95 and back, but 94 and back can be. but 96-98 is a family. and are compatible. hope that helps. http://www.kick-fix.com/air-conditioning.html I am pretty sure it will, I know a '96 sidekick or tracker will fit. Most of the sidekick tracker stuff works. Check out the x90 yahoo group, very helfpul there.

No, they both have about the same durability.

That is not true, there are 2 belts, one to power alt-water pump and one to power ac-power steering. They are both serpentine belts. There is no Serpentine belt on a 2.4 liter optima, there are 3 drive belts only

Yes, the 68 VW came with seat belts for both front and back sets. The front seats for the Beetle were 3 point retractable seat belts and lap belts in the rear.

No he is not. Knuckles is both Sonic`s friend and a rival.

Belts have been documented both for male and female clothing since the Bronze Age. Both sexes used them off and on, depending on the current fashion.

I have a '96 Ultra and I've changed both belts. I had to remove the bottom screw of the upper engine mount to change both the Supercharger and Accessory belts. Take the right front tire off for easier access. Remove the bolt, then get a star socket and remove the screw. There is a metal piece held in by the screw. With the screw missing you can now pull the belts through. You'll have to route the belts in front of the pulley that is behind the mount. I am a Do-It-Yourselfer. I've done this twice. And that's how I did it. Also, make sure you don't waste your money on cheap belts. Pay a little extra for good belts so you won't have to do this much.

I was looking at the 1999 Ford Escort scheduled maintenance guide and the Gates website ( they make timing belts etc . ) and both show to inspect the timing belt at 120,000 miles , replace if necessary ( that applies to both the 2.0 liter SOHC and DOHC engines )

No. Waluigi is just Wario's sidekick but both of them are Mario and Luigi's rivals

3 drive belts on both the 4 and 6 cyl. + timing belt on 3.3 v6

== == http://www.kick-fix.com what engine. there are 2 and both are different. but the answer is , adjust the idle bleed screw on the throttle body in both cases. but high idle , means something else is wrong. re post , what motor you have. 8v or 16v == == == == Try this web site, http://www.blaireau.com:8081/manuel/swift%20pdf/G13%20Engine%20Adjustments.pdf. It's for the 1993 suzuki swift but there is also specs on the sidekick as well. Otherwise your local library should have service manuals that you can make copies from. Other than that your local auto partsstore should have Chiltons brand manuals for sale. Hope this helps!!
