if its anything like the old school engines, you would have to put them on at the same time. both gears and chain together
First of all, It has a timing chain not a timing belt. No need to change the timing chain and gears. They will last the life of the engine.
To change a Vauxhall Corsa timing change you need to first remove the rocker cover, the alternator tensioner, heat shield, water pump, engine mount, and crankshaft pulley. Now that you have found the timing change, unscrew the timing chain guides, remove old chain, and replace with new chain.
To change the timing chain on a Toyota motor, you need to first get a new timing chain. From there, take the old one off. You may have to remove things in the engine to do this. Put the new one on, looping it around.
There is no set mileage to change the timing chain. Chains will usually last the life of the engine. The usual symptoms of a chain going bad are that the engine rattles when you first start it (chain flapping around) and lacks power(slack chain causing camshaft timing to drift around unpredictably). Replacing a chain can cost from $500-$700 so just rest easy, and unless you hear it or notice poor performance it is fine.
You do not need to change a timing chain as a general maintenance item, unlike a timing belt. Generally timing chains are only changed on very high-mileage motors if they are being rebuilt or refreshed. In most cases by the time the engine is due for a timing chain change, it could use a rebuild anyway. B. Some cars have timing belts. Timing belts and chains need to be replaced at the first sign of damage. If the chains are not replaced, the engine will come to a grinding halt and suffer severe damage.
Normally a worn timing chain becomes noisy. That is the first sign of trouble ahead. It is very rare for timing chain to fail as they are designed to last the life of the engine. But, it is possible.
First off, you do not have to remove the engine from any vehicle I know of to replace a timing belt. Secondly, your vehicle has a chain, and not a belt.
The Taurus / Sables are equipped with a timing chain. No scheduled replacement is necessary. The only 3.0 Ford Taurus that had a belt was the SHO model, which had a Yamaha built 3.0 V6. You do not need to change a timing chain as a general maintenance item, unlike a timing belt. Generally timing chains are only changed on very high-mileage motors if they are being rebuilt or refreshed. In most cases by the time the engine is due for a timing chain change, it could use a rebuild anyway. Some cars have timing belts. Timing belts and chains need to be replaced at the first sign of damage. If the chains are not replaced, the engine will come to a grinding halt and suffer severe damage. Chain The 3.0 liter engine codes (1)or (u) and 3.8 liter engine code (4) engines use a timing chain.The Taurus SHO engines code(y) and code (p) use a timing belt.The engine code is the 8th digit in your serial number,count from front of the number. Replacement of timing chains is not a regular maintenance operation. If there is no specific problem, leave it be. Your Taurus has a timing chain and so do all others except the Taurus SHO. Never, as it does not have a belt, it has a chain. The 3.0 liter - OHV - Vulcan V6 engine has a timing CHAIN It has a timing chain. If you have a 4 cylinder engine, or a 3.8l V-6, you have a timing chain. If you have a 3.0 or 3.2L V-6 also called a SHO engine, you have a timing belt.
To replace timing chain on a 3.1 Chevy Lumina engine, you need to first make sure that your motor or engine is turned off. Then you need to remove the chain and replace it.
It has a timing chain. The timing chain is on the front of the engine. But before messing with it ,I would have the timing check first. You may have something else wrong,like a sensor or a vaccum leak.
First off, its a chain, NOT a belt, and you DONT change it unless it breaks. You can SET the timing, but you dont have to change the chain. You need a timing light to re-set it if its off. Its like a strobe light.
the first question is what caused the hole? did the timing chain break and hit the cover, second is it a 2.4 liter engine?
First off the 4.7L uses a timing chain, not a belt. Second, it could bend valves if the chain breaks.
You need to remove the housing on the "front" of the engine (as differentiated from the traditional rear of the engine). Once you have the front of the engine open and the pan off, the timing chain, camshafts and crankshaft should be exposed. Turn the crankshaft to #1TDC and put a small drill bit or other small rod into the alignment holes on the camshaft sprockets to keep them in place. Remove the timing chain tensioner rails, making sure that you retract the tensioner first (piston on a spring) then remove the bolts from the crankshaft and camshafts. Once you get to that point, the chain and sprockets should all come off. Reassemble in the reverse order, but use new tensioner rails, sprocket and timing chain. Additional information: If the engine has been properly maintained, the timing chain shouldn't need replacing until you rebuild the engine. A timing chain isn't like a timing belt; chains last a lot longer.
That year did not have a timing belt. It has a timing chain and gears. If the timing chain broke then yes . It will just quit running and will not start. You need to check the fuel pressure FIRST and then make sure the engine is firing next. I don't think the timing chain went out. it is not a common problem with that year. It would help if WE new the engine size too. I would check things out real close before putting a timing chain in it. There is a lot of things that could just shut the engine off with out the check engine light coming on.
As far as I know all the engine sizes used in a Ford Windstar since the first model year ( 1995 ) have used a timing CHAIN
The Mazda 6, First and Second Gen, have a timing chain.
First and foremost this engine does not have a timing belt. It acutally has a timing chain which does not need to be replaced unless there are issues with the vehicle holding time.
My first thought would be that the timing chain is not installed correctly. It is very hard to get the marks lined up correctly.
The four-cylinder has a timing chain that should last the life of the engine. The V-6 has a timing belt that must be replaced every 110,000 miles or 10 years whichever comes first.
Most of the time when the timing belt fails on these vehicles it damages the engine. With todays dealership prices it is cheaper just to replace the engine assembly than repair the existing.
yes it does it needs to have the dot on each sprocket facing each other so the timing is set
The first model year for the Saturn Ion was 2003. It uses a GM Ecotec engine that has a chain cam drive just like the original S series Saturns produced until 2002.
Could be a broken timing chain. Could be a cooked Engine Control Module. I'd guess the timing chain first. ECMs usually give some warning.
You can change a timing belt on a 2007 kia spectra by first making sure that the engine is turned off. Pop open the hood and locate the timing belt, and remove the belt carefully.
