You need to remove plug on side of engine behind exhaust manifold for you to time the oil pump with a small screwdriver insert screwdriver through the plug hole while turning the oil pump gear screwdriver should go in when the counter balance is underneath the screwdriver will then go in now your pump should be timed,need to do this asap to prevent engine damage

I am afraid not. The water from the radiator never goes into the engine. Radiator is just there to keep the engine temperature Normal. That is to say that it keeps in cool because engines get very hot while driving the car. If you take out the water, it would overhead quickly and would eventually halt the engine. As for the vibration from engine, it because the supports of the engine aren't bolted together snuggly. So when you accelerate, the engine vibrates hard and then also shake up the supports and cause noise.

The items to check are
Waste gate on the turbo Please email me the turbo model # Example: G3

EGR valve (stuck open or not moving freely) / need to remove carbon in EGR valve (if equipped in emission state / country) Clean EGR passage tube.
REMOVE ALL CARBON with WD-40 or PB Blaster

Check for vacuum leaks.
YOU MUST replace EGR base mount gasket.

Inspect timing belt tensioner.
Jumped timing / belt Check for burn / loose rubber particle on the bottom of the timing belt cover. Recheck timing marks / dots and make sure it's line up correctly.
You should change the water pump and T-belt at the same time. Check the service record for the last water pump change. Spin the water pump and check for free movement and leak.
====
After everything are check out then open the valve cover to do a valve adjustment. You should do valve adjustment every year or 12-18,000 miles.

Monitor for oil leaks from rear main seal,front seal and valmustgo_24.jpgmustgo_2.gifve cover.

Check for white smoke at the tailpipe after 10-15 minutes of warm up time to rule out head gasket damage.
check for cross mix of oil and coolant.
TDI should go well over 200,000 miles before major over-haul.

2003 kia rio- water pumps


I would follow the mechanics recommedations. I think he's taliking about the cam and crankshaft seals. Yes the water pump should be replaced as well. The pump that sprays windshield washer fluid onto the windshield is called the windshield washer pump. The water pump is on the engine and pumps water (coolant/antifreeze) through the engine to the radiator and heater core.

There are Two Balance Shafts on the 2.4. Did your mechanic also change the balance shaft belt when he changed the timing belt? If he didn't, you'll want to do that. Since you mentioned the old belt was missing teeth, those loose teeth flying around could have damaged the crank position sensor and sensor blade (tone wheel). Also, the front balance shaft (on the side of the engine nearest the radiator), has THREE different positions when the timing mark is lined up - here's the glitch - ONLY ONE of them is the correct one - this is probably where your vibration is.

Rattling sound inside engine on acceleration


possibly the bearings in the water pump,but that should have been replaced when the timing belt was done,because of the work involved

Rattling only when accelerating


the Timing Belt could be a tooth or 2 off or the distributor could be off in angle, you probably will have to have the timing set with a timing light, that will cause pinging and lack of power. most times its juts needing the timing set correctly, it could be just a few degrees out.

Why does my car vibrate and noisy at red light and stop sign


My rio kia bought on from uyi technical dealer in benin city, edo state of nigeria only 4 months ago is vibrating with noise while driving. The noise is noticed by other road users even in motion, making a very loud noise or sound that is highly embarrassing. The dealer mechanics have checked more than twice yet no result, instead the hub bearing is observed; tyres are turn over yet the noise persists.

What do think is resolution to the problem? pls help me. Vinson- kvinson3000@yahoo.com

Do I change water pump when having timing belt changed


I would go to auto zone and get a diagram and the timing belt and do it yourself and the water pump (no it does not have to be changed everytime the timing belt is changed but if the car has over 60,000miles then it is best to change them both) it is not that hard especially if the car is not out of time just make sure you disconnect the negative side of the battery
