Watrpump replacment

the water pump is located on the side of the engine block where the cam belt is .its a straightforward job but again its a physically hard job as the cam belt and auxiliary belt need to be removed .and you will loose all your coolant .then the timing will need to be set up .when your car is due for a cam belt { its always worth replacing the water pump on any car }as its such a pain trying to change the pump again ..if you are thinking of doing this yourself ..I would think again is beyond the scope of a DIY mechanic from the point of view you will nned a ramp and even if you a good home mechanic I doubt that you will have a 2 post ramp!

Noise from engine front end

it is always good practice to replace idler pulleys , seals , hydraulic adjuster when replacing a timing belt as the everything is worn out as well
It is now possible that the idler bearings for the belt are failing
If the pulleys , crank and cam seals and hydraulic adjuster were all not replaced with the belt then they job will have to be done soon

Need to do timeing belt and the best way

Easiest way to do a timing belt for a 3000gt is to loosen the engine mount right by the timing assembly. Jack up that side of the motor to change the belt. You will need a new tensioner as well. I'm not sure if you've done timing belts before but make sure you mark the top dead centers on the belt. On dual overheads on our cars, it is a good idea to make 2 wedges out of wood that wedge into the pair of cam gears to keep them from moving before you remove the old belt. Also when installing the belt I found the paperclips (the ones you use for a large amount of paper usually with a black clip with 2 silver side clips) to be useful to keep the belt on the cams while moving on to the next cam. This keeps the belt in place. It's kinda hard to explain through words but I hope this helped. =)

Oil change and cam belt/timing chain change for volkswagen golf 1.9cc tdi 130 bhp, 1992 model

support engine. remove coolant reservoir. remove serpentine belt. remove serpentine belt tensioner. remove bolts from mount. carefully raise engine up and move mount out of the way.(hard to explain and this is hard to do you have to have the engine in the perfect position and whatnot) remove the top plastic cover. with 19mm socket rotate engine clockwise until hole in cam lines up with hole in head. insert vw special tool to hold cam. remove the 4 6mm bolts on crank pulley. remove plastic covers. with white paint, mark belt to cam and belt to crank. loosen tensioner. remove belt. transfer marks to new belt. strongly suggest replacing water pump. reinstall t-belt. put the tensioner somewhat tight. rotate the engine fully twice. loosen tensioner bolt and adjust to perfect tension using needle and v-groove on adjuster. install is reverse of removal.

I have a ACURA 3.5 RL with only 138000 KM and wondering if I should replaced the timing belt and water pump

If you know that the timing belt has not been changed at the regular interval or ever been changed, then YES. Also change the water pump and timing belt tensioners.
Its normal to change every 80,000 - 100,000 km

Do I have to change my timing belt when I replace the water pump on my 98 Ponitac Grand am 2.4 Liter Twin Cam Engine

If the belt hasn't been changed in a while, it's a good idea to do it while you're in there -- it'll save a lot of labor later -- check owner's manual for belt change interval.

No 8 volt supply from pcm

You likely already checked this but how about a broken timing belt. If the cams aren't turning the cam sensor isn't working and the pcm won't fire the plugs.

The for Pinto 2ltr is a walk in the park compared to the modern engine.

Its not a real hard job get a manual first . make sure every thing is lined up correctly draw a pic where all the marks are.

replace the idler and tentioner as well Gates do a good kit.
Check to see if the cam and crank seals are leaking do them at the same time. Dont break the idler bolt.
