This is really hard for me to explain, however I'll give it a try. First you need to remove the plastic cover on the passenger side of engine. Next you will need to set the bottom crank pulley on "0". Then make sure your cam is lined up with the mark on the timing plate behind the cam,(there is a small mark) put it on dead center. Next you will need to loosen the tensioner for the timing belt. Remove the belt and replace it with the new one. Then you are ready to begin putting your car back together. Hope this helps.AnswerThe tensioner for the timing belt on these cars is the water pump.
the first thing you should do is go to just about any auto parts store and spend 25 bucks on a haynes repair manual for your car, the after freading up on how hard its going to be then you will want to fallow the instructions carefully, and you will need to have a machanicail back ground or know someone who does that can help, because theres alot more invovled than juat taking off plastic covers, it's a very exstinsive job.
After you have released the tension from the belt, remove the 2 obvious bolts that hold it to the engine block.
there is a sticker on your strut tower...my 88 is 8 degrees
Front of engine (behind serpentine belt).
if its a 4 cylinder, its located inside the timing case.
You don't- it's controlled by the PCM. If is has a 2.5 engine you cann't adjust the timing
Check autozone.com it tells a bit about it. some engines you have to remove the timing belt so its not a very east job.
Mine did this and I found out it was the timing belt that needed to be changed.
behind timing cover on front of engine if its a 2.0 ltr ohc
On The Crankshaft It Has A Magnet & On The Timing Cover It Has A Pick Up Coil, This Sends The Control Box Under The Coils Information As When To Fire That Coil. The Timing Is Done By The Computer.
if im not mistaken..it is behind the timing cover..it runs off the timing belt You are correct. It is the belt tensioner for your timing belt and a pain to release to release the tension and also not the easiest to replace.
go to autozone.com current vehicle choose car repair info vehicle repair guides it may be in there.
Timing belt replacement is a pretty big job. I'd go to the parts store and pick up a Chilton or Haynes manual.
you have to remove the timing chain in order to remove the cam covers
The 2.0l VIN K is a free spinning or non interferience engine.

After looking at the Gates website ( they make timing belts etc. ) I found ( 3 ) 1989 Pontiac models that were available with a 2.0 L engine The Grand Am , Lemans , and Sunbird and NO , IT IS NOT AN INTERFERENCE ENGINE
there should be markings on your timing cover that range from 0 to 16, the flywheel mark needs to be in the center at 8. then the cam pulley mark needs to line up with the groove on the backing plate.

You don't. It has no distributor. The only thing to make sure of is that the timing chain is installed correctly....(if you've removed it) and that the plug wires are routed correctly. If it's running poorly you'll have to look at other reasons besides the timing.
How do you set distubitor timing on pontiac 455?
You have to remove everything in the timing belt region including a timing belt, gears and plastic protection.
Marks are grooves that are cast into the camshaft sprocket and rear cover. crankshaft pulley has notch must be aligned with 10 degree btbc mark (metal plate with #'s) before timing belt is removed
No you do not have to remove the timing chain. Look on the PASSENGER SIDE, FRONT ENGINE AREA, MOUNTED REAR OF WATER PUMP.
The 2008 Pontiac G6 has a timing chain that normally requires no maintenance.
