The question you ask is tooinvolved for a proper answer. You need to go to a car parts store, and get arepair manual for your car.They cost about $16.00Or, go to a Public Library.
Support engine from top with hoist or underneath the oil pan using a jack and large flat block of wood. Remove Power Steering pump and reservoir and set it aside. Adjust alternator to slack and remove alternator belt. Remove passenger side motor mount from frame and from motor. Remove timing cover. Remove old belt (loosening tensioner if necessary) and clean timing gears thoroughly. Recommend replacing tensioner. Be careful when removing or installing the tensioner because it threads into a weak part of the oil pump cover. Set crank gear to the 12:00 mark on the oil pump cover, and cam gear mark to 9:00 (level with cylinder head) with dowel at 12:00. Install new belt and make sure the slack is taken up in the side towards the firewall. Using an Allen wrench apply tension to the belt and temporarily tighten the tensioner. Do not get the belt too tight but no slack either. Turn the motor over several times forward and back to check for interference and for slack in the belt. If you feel interference aside from the normal valve spring force you have either put the belt on wrong or have bent valve(s). If there is slack in the belt, loosen the tensioner and take up the slack again. When you are ready put blue threadlocker on the tensioner bolt and tighten it to just under spec. Be careful not to apply diagonal force on your torque wrench or you will break the oil pump.
At this point you can remove the spark plugs, coil primary wire, and ECM relay, and do a compression check to ensure that you do not have bent valves. If the result of the compression check is good put it all back together. Tighten bolts to the specification listed in the manual. Use red loctite on the crankshaft bolt, they have been known to come out randomly without it. Be prepared for the motor mount through bolt to fail. GM doesnt have it anymore and is listed as a 10.9. I replaced mine with a grade 8.8 and it worked fine. Replace the power steering pump, reservoir, and all belts, lower the motor, and start er up. If there is excessive noise from the timing belt area you have tensioned the belt too much which will shorten its life, or else the tensioner bearing is bad and must be replaced. Otherwise you are done, check the timing and enjoy.
By the way replacing your camshaft and crankshaft seal(s) is economical to do at this point. Don't gouge the shafts when doing it, just poke something into the seal diagonally to get ahold of it and pull it out. MAke sure the seal spring came out with it. To get to the seals the cam and crank gears have to be removed. The cam gear just has a few bolts on the face. The crank gear should slide right off the crankshaft. If it doesn't come off peacefully, don't bother with it unless you are ready to buy a new gear. The reason is that the lip around the back of the gear is easily damaged and without it the timing belt will get shredded or ride off the gear. To get mine off I had to wedge it off with two screwdrivers in the back, and use a propane torch and kroil to heat the gear up and work it off the shaft. Use a good anti-seize or oil when you reinstall the gear onto the shaft.
Also economical to do is replace the water pump. It bolts right into the block. With the water pump you might as well replace your thermostat and heater/radiator hoses too. Don't forget the throttle body heater hoses and the o-ring at the thermostat inlet pipe.

I think that after you put on the timing belt alighned properly,that your distrib. makes up the diff. when you adjust it. Jim
Some engines available in your car don't have a timing belt. If yours does, get a manual from DISCOUNTAUTOREPAIRMANUALS.COM.
You ask a professional for help.

The 1991 Lexus ls400 has a timing belt.
Every 60,000 miles Here is how to replace the timing belt http://www.racecaddy.com/mx5/tech/timing-belt-mx5.html Good luck
Yes, A 1991 civic uses a timing belt, not a timing chain.
The timing belt on a 1991 Plymouth Acclaim is replaced by removing the engine accessories, removing the timing cover, and taking pressure off the idler pulley. The belt can then be slipped off the sprockets, a new belt put in place, and the tension restored.
The grand am does not have a timing belt it has a timing chain.
No Belt=It has a Timing Chain.=
every 60 k miles
The water pump is driven by the timing belt under the timing cover. It would be no more labor to replace the timing belt at the same time.They will only last about 90k and you could do both at the same time.To replace the water pump you have to take the timing belt off and drain the cooling system.Then, the new water pump is bolted on and the standard procedure is to replace the timing belt at that time.
I believe you need to replace a timing belt. Cause it uses timing chain which doesn't required to change as timing belt.
loosen the three bolts on the distributor and turn it, that will change your timing. Timing belt change intervel is 100,000km or 5years.
In order to replace your timing belt on your 1994 Avenger, you will need to first drain your cooling system. Remove the timing belt and mounting bolts and replace with your new belt.

Timing chains, no belt.
The Ram does not have a timing belt.
If your timing belt has cracks in it both inside and out, replace it!
it has a timing chain. IT HAS A BELT !!
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.
