Be careful doing this. you have to line up the gears rightit is not a job for a novice but check out aboutauto.com and they will have data on how to do this job. if your vehicle has a lot a miles on it you should also change the front engine seals at the same time. also youtube might have a vedeo on this

96 2.0 jetta timming belt diagrham


I found this diagrham, by what I read, be very careful NOT to rotate any pulleys when the belt is off and put little arrows on the pulleys and belt in the same spots and flowing in the same direction to aid yourself when it is being replaced.

I'm ok at working on cars i was wondering if i can pull out a water pump in my wife subaru forester or is it to much and do i take it in


sorry didnt see the bit at the top, depending on how good you are with cars it can be relativley easy its on the front of the engine you may have to move a few things to get to it im not that educated on suburu forresters so im not to sure, but it should jus be a few bolts and a belt you have to remove to get it off, if that helps at all

I need a diagram of the timming belt.It would line up correctly.


You need to offset (back it up counterclockwise) the cam gear on the right (passenger) side of the engine by "one tooth" before engaging the belt tensioner. I've personally been through this issue several times. Once you have it offset, engage you belt tensioner, and you gears will align properly.

I hope this information helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

Replace timing belt on Volvo S60


There is no room for error...... Zero clearance. If off one tooth it can and will bend valves. if you are one that just feels the need to get alittle dirty or just can't pay for the service, then get out your Haynes out and turn to .....Tune up, and look at replacing timming belt. Get a cam gear tool that locks them into place so as that they will not move when u have them lined up. make sure they are lined up with marks as said in book. then make sure crank as well as all marks are lined up acordingly. make sure belt marks are lined up with everything. i would reccomend using a volvo belt though cause it will have all the marks on it.However other company's make good quality belts also at a fraction of the price. So it is really up to you.
Good thing when doing timming belt is to also change out your timming belt tensioner. YES do this it will save you a engine in the long run. it is a moving part that will go bad, it will freeze up and snap timming belt. rip out teeth in thebelt and bend valves. So as a gen rule...When you change timming belt, Change belt tensioner at same time since you cant just change tensioner without changing or getting timming belt off. Remember to use your HAYNES. It is your friend and will save you money in the long run. Good luck... Hope this helps you.

2001 Toyota camry 2.2 L 4 cyl engine timming belt replacement


The 2001 Camry 2.2 has a timing belt.
Recommended change interval is 90,000 miles.
There is no good reason for putting the replacement off, as the belt may be stretched slightly when it nears the rec replace interval, and your mileage may suffer because the engine is not in proper "time".
If the belt jumps time or breaks, it will NOT damage the valves.
