Timing Belts and Chains

Timing belts and chains are used in an internal-combustion engine to synchronize the opening and closing of the engine’s valves. The belt also drives other components such as the pumps and alternator. The belt is made of fiberglass or Kevlar-reinforced rubber.

First put the #1 piston all the way up in the cyl.Make sure your crank shaft timing mark is lined up.There's another timing mark on the left side as you look at the crank shaft on the other gear(intermeteate gear).It too must be lined up. Put your cam gears timing marks together with all the valves closed on #1 cyl.

What is the Timing?

Asked by Wiki User

In a four-stroke overhead-cam engine, the timing chain connects the crankshaft to the camshaft. The camshaft opens and closes the valves in the cylinders and turns at half the speed of the crankshaft. Many engines now have a cog-belt instead of a chain.

How many times can you have breast augmentation?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

There doesn't appear to be any clear answer to this question. The only thing that everyone agrees on is that implants don't last forever. Some people recommend for safety having breast augmentation redone in as little as 5 years. Others think that 10 years should be sufficient if there are no known complications.

Where are the timing marks on a 92 Geo Storm?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

On the 1.8 DOHC GSi model the cam shaft timing sprockets have little marks along the edge of them. The two marks MUST be lined up closest to each other. The marks are very small and you may want to use your fingernail to find them. On the 1.6 SOHC model, the camshaft timing sprocket has the same type mark, but it must be at the 9 O'clock position. It should be EXACTLY on the top plan of the cylinderhead mating surface with the valve cover. On all Storm engines, the lower crankshaft timing sprocket has a small notch. That MUST be at the 12 O'clock position. It will line up with a small little triangle on the oil pump housing.

When do you know is time to replace the alternator?

Asked by Wiki User

The alternator should only have to be replaced if it has either failed to provide sufficient current to keep the battery charged and the car's electrical system supplied, or it has suffered mechanical damage like a worn bearing or damaged casing. Replacement for age alone is not necessary.

What signs are there for a blown valve gasket?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Valves have seals instead of gaskets and if one was bad you would have oil on the spark plug for that cylinder if you were to take it out and inspect it. A bad valve cover gasket would leak oil on the outside of the engine. a bad head gasket would put oil and/or pressure into the coolant system, coolant into the combustion chamber causing white smoke, or coolant into the oil.

signs of a blown head gasket can be:- coolant leaking outside of engine from head/block area,coolant in engine oil, oil in radiator,over heating of engine.loss of pwer.loss of coolant from coolant resevoir, smell of coolant while driving, and not being able to tell where it is coming from

Do Jeeps have timing belts or timing chains?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The only Jeep engine that has a timing belt is the 2.4 Liter (DOHC) Vin#1 engine. All other Jeep engines have a timing chain. The belt should be changed at 120,000 miles under normal conditions and 90,000 miles under severe conditions. As this is an Interference engine and serious damage will occur if the belt breaks, I would use the severe schedule and change it at 90,000 miles. If the belt breaks it can cost you plenty.

How do you replace a timing belt on a 1991 Ford Ranger 2.3?

you should have a tensioner assembly you can loosen up to get the belt off easier, and to slip the new one on. there should also be a schematic on the frame of your truck right where you lift the hood from. this will tell you the proper route to take with your new belt ;)

How do you replace the timing belt in a 1994 Chevy lumina 3.1L van?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

<< palmboy 051605>>

Well, ...

For a 1994 Lumina APV (3.8L), simply rotate the tensioner using a long adjustable or simlilar wrench (for torque) or tratchet/socket counter-clockwise. The tensioner is pulley-like mechanism between the power steering pump and the water pump. Once rotated, there will be slack in the belt to remove it from the remaining components.

Use the diagram (sticker) inside the hood cabin (near radiator) as a reference for routing the replacement belt. Position belt and rotate tensioner to provide slack for final belt placement (over alternator pulley) and release tensioner.

This is probably a similar procedure for your 1993 APV.

What are the timing marks on a single cam 1988 Chevy Nova 4 cylinder?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

This is not an easy job. The belt runs around the passenger side engine mount. Now would also be a good time to change the water pump since it is also buried behind the covers. It's actually standard procedure at Toyota repair shops to do this. To change the belt, you need to disconnect the battery, remove all the belts that run the alternator, a/c, etc. Then put a jack under the engine and remove the passenger side engine mount. You will have to jack up the engine an inch or two to get at the 4 bolts that hold the crank pulley in place. The plastic covers come off next if there is nothing else in the way. This gives you access to the belt. Move the idler pulley out of the way (you will have to loosen the bolt a bit then tighten again when it's out of the way) and you can remove the belt. If you're going to replace the water pump, do it now (scrape off all of the old gasket or you'll have leaks). Make sure you do not move the cam or crank pulleys or they will get out of alignment and you'll have an even bigger mess on your hands. Put on your new belt, loosen the idler pulley bolt and it should spring out and put the belt under tension. The rest is simply reassembling everything else in the opposite order it came off. I didn't write all the little details, but this will give you a pretty good idea of what you're in for. It's almost an all day job, so make sure to give yourself a lot of time to tackle this.
