The cam seal only has one job, to stop oil from leaking out. If they are not wet with oil they are probably working.

Your timing belt was not properly installed. It's probably off by a tooth or two.

The timing is computer controlled, there is no adjustments. I know this is a little late, but timing could be off because the timing belt is not properly aligned. If the timing belt is installed incorrectly the timing will never be right.

Very unlikely, but if the mechanic didn't tighten the AC drive belt properly then that could easily be the problem. Your dealership should check that easily and for free.

In this case your car will give black smoke and it wont have much power to it and you have to get the timing belt taken off and set it up to its right place then put the belt back on it. Rememer your engine will be bit loud voice wise and if the belt was not installed properly.

93 civic has a timing belt... if its dual overhead cams, it is nessecary to find the timing marks.. set them properly to their marks as well as the crankshaft. once these are properly set slip your timing belt on and then find the mark for your idler pulley.. reinstall everything and drive away

There is no timing belt on any S10 or Sonama or Blazers or Jimmys, No matter if you got a 2.2 or 4.3 even some of the older s10s that had a 2.8 in them never had a belt. Its a timing chain.

Timing marks on the gears are aligned with marks on the belt.

There are no timing marks on a 1.5DCI Clio 51Reg. Instead, a timing pin kit needs to be used to properly set the belt on this engine.

Separate issue, if you need too set the timing following a timing belt change or belt slippage then you have to set the mechnical timing of the motor. Go buy a Chilton or Haynes manual which will tell you where the marks are and you can properly set the timing before starting the motor.
