there are two tensioners, the serpentine tensioner and the timing belt tensioner. the timing belt tensioner is behind the timing belt cover ;)
When you change the timing belt inspect the tenstioner. If it is not in perfect condition replace it.
The Pontiac Grand Prix has a Timing Chain with a spring loaded tensioner. The tensioner is know to wear, crack and then break. The timing chain and tensioner should be replaced at 100,000 miles. This is a pretty big job that can be done with the motor in the car. $$$ Ray
There is no timing ajustment, Its controled by ECM- Computer.
auto store usually special order for a timing belt tensioner or belt tensioner
your chain tensioner probley has broken apart and u might need a new one.
If the timing belt drives the water pump you should also replaced it at the same time. Also inspect the tensioner and replace as necessary.
AnswerThe timing is controled by the sensors and the computer, it can't be adjusted.You can if the timing belt is stretched! Replace your timing belt and the hydraulic tensioner and it should repair the bad timing.
On your top and bottom pulleys ,you have timing marks,they should line up when time is correct.
You don't. The timing belt should have a spring loaded tensioner which pulls on the belt to adjust tension.
The pin in the auto-tensioner slid right out with no resistance. I also measured the auto-tensioner piston runout at 0.17" with a caliper...right where it should be.
Ask for a Timing Belt Kit. This timing belt kit includes; 1 Timing Belt 1 Tensioner Pulley
The timing chain tensioner bolt sticks out the back left side of the cylinder head. Take the timing chain cover off on the left side of the motor too see the inside to the chain tensioner.
Should be 8 to 10 degrees before TDC
Yes, the BMW M20 engine uses a timing belt. It should be replaced (along with the tensioner) every 70000 kM.
if its 2002 /2003 with timing chain get the updated tensioner and new chain fitted before it jumps as these do at 50,000!
In order to change the timing belt in your PT Cruiser you will need the new tensioner and timing belt covers. Your dealership should have the parts you need
No, timing chain doesn't need replacing.
The 3.0 liter V6 engine in a 1990 Toyota pickup has a timing BELT
Idler and tensioner pulleys, cam and crank oil seals and pays to do water pump also if it is driven from the timing belt.
You should replace the water pump, tensioner, seals, and drive belts with the timing belt. It should be no more than 450 dollars.
There is no Timing Belt. It has a Timing Chain ,, inside the Engine.
The only way to know which style tensioner you have is to remove the crank pulley and timing cover and look.
