Take a piece of tin foil and fold it twice. Put it behind your top idler pulley and then bolt it down. it will create just enough torque to keep the belt from walking off. I had the same problem!

Good luck and by the way.. Screw that *** who wants money to help people.

2002 trooper starts,sputters some,backfires thru breather then dies


ok what engine is there,? gas or diesel, ill guess, gas.
that symptoms Gob smacks me as, timing errors.
is the cam belt ignore for 6 years. (6x 10k per year, is 60k mile)
that is all part of a tuneup, or doing necessary service on the engine.
the belt slipped,
if you had check spark timing ,it be way off, and that belt caused that.

gen 2, trooper have this line up,
3.2 L 6VD1 SOHC V6
3.2 L 6VD1 DOHC V6
3.5 L 6VE1 DOHC V6
3.0 L 4JX1 TD I4
3.1 L 4JG2 TD I4


i ask every time, and not one ever can figure out whats under the hood. sadly.

the last 2 are diesel...

if you disclose engine that tells the spert, what EFI system is there.

Timing belt trying to walk off the gears


There should be a round sleeve that fits on the crank pulley once the timing belt is installed. It looks like a big metal washer. If all the other pulleys are ok and nothing out of line it should not walk off.

Do Subaru Legacy 1991, have cam belts that need reg replacing


yes they have a timing belt and should be changed every 60k. now honestly everyone is different but ill tell ya what subaru are the easiest and simplist to work on almost nothing to them and they run forever.but that is my opinion.ah prices all pending where you live but i wouldn't charge more then $300-350 to change one.it is about 3 hours to change for sohc and 4 for dohc estimate about $80-100 for most shops now a days.The belt runs about $50-60 bucks but sometimes pending mileage i would change out the belt tensioner they run about 100 buck so be prepared. but youll prolly never have to change it again though.like i said they last for ever!!!

It is common practice to replace belts that are 3 years or older depending on the type belt it is. The stretch and break over time with heat and cooling that goes on. Some mechanics are not trained in the proper maintainance of belts and hoses You should be having the timing belt change to. I believe if it is the ribbed type belt it is supposed to be replaced at 60 thousand miles. If you don't and the belt fails it's a $3000.00 repair minimum so $200.00 IN maintiance is in my opinion worth it. And belts can just fail even new ones. However you could also have a Tensioner pulley bearing going out causing the problem so I suggest you try a different shop. Hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya.

51 plate 1.8 16v petrol, aux belt shredded and wrapped itself under cam belt for second time in 3 years ! EVERY VALVE BENT


you need to have the timing gears changed and have the mechanic check end play on the crank shaft and the end play on the cam and check the tensioner pulley for wear. If these are ok then you will need to see if it's a bad belt, Never use after market parts for timing belts use factory parts so it will last longer. This is a common thing for a mechanic to forget to check when replacing the timing belt. Hope this helps and thanks for using Fix-ya.

Glow plug error


When was the last time you had your timing belt replaced. Did you do it yourself.

I had mine changed last year and I have known for an entire year that the timing was off slightly. The check engine light WOULD NOT turn off not matter what I did and it kept reading a bad glow plug.

I finally fixed the timing (the camshaft sprocket was off only one tooth) this past Sunday and the check engine light finally turned off all by itself!

Not sure if this fixes your issue, but, it fixed mine.

By the way, if you need the tool kit for fixing your TDI's timing, by it from dieselvw.com. This guy sells a 3 piece kit for $49 where other websites sell a two piece kit for $125 or MORE! I used the kit and it worked flawlessly and the extra piece (the tensioner wrench was handy!).
