Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

Timing belt while changing timing belt the back bank sprocket moved forward 1/4 turn. I rotated it one complete turn and finished the job. Now the engine runs very rough and you can tell it is out of time. How can I get the timing back?

First of all did you do the belt as maintenance or did the belt brake and you replaced it? if the belt broke chances are yo have bent valves for the engine to run rough.

Timing Belt Service 2002 Kia Sedona 3.5 liter

Removal

1. Remove the engine cover

2. Remove the drive bell.

3. Remove the idler pulley, crankshaft pulley, power steering pulley and tensioner

pulley.

4. Remove the upper and lower timing belt cover.

5. Support the engine with garage jack or special tool, and then remove the engine

mounting insulator.

Caution: Take care not to deform the engine oil pan.

Image 1

6. Remove the auto tensioner.

Notice: Rotate the crankshaft clockwise and align the timing mark to get the No.1

cylinder's piston be in TðC position (compression stroke). At this time, the timing

marks of the camshaft sprocket and cylinder head cover should coincide with each

other.

Image 2

'. Remove the timing bell.

Notice: When re-using timing bell, make sure of marking the rotating direction on

the belt so as to install correctly.

Image 3

Installation

Method of installing timing bell and auto tensioner

Image 4

1. Install the idler pulley to the engine support lower bracket.

Image 5

2. Install the tensioner arm, shaft and plain washer to the cylinder block.

Tightening torque: 35 -55 Nm (350-550 kg-cm, 25.82 -40.57 ft. lbs.)

Image 6

3. Install the crankshaft sprocket.

Notice: Confirm if timing marks coincide with.

Image 7

Caution: Align the spacer with a pin, and assemble it exerting even force not to

deform the crankshaft sensing blade.

Image 8

4. Install the camshaft sprocket. Align it like initial state as shown.

Caution: When installing camshaft sprocket, tighten the bolt holding hexagonal

part of camshaft to prevent it from tuning.

5. Install the auto tensioner to the oil pump case.

Image 9

Caution: At this time the auto tensioner's set pin should be assembled completely.

Image 10

6. Align the timing marks of each sprocket and install the timing bell, maintaining the

proper belt tension between each shaft in this order. Crankshaft sprocket -> Idler

pulley -> Left bank exhaust camshaft sprocket -> Left bank intake camshaft sprocket

-> Water pump pulley -> Right bank intake camshaft sprocket -> Right bank exhaust

camshaft sprocket -> Tensioner pulley.

Caution:

1 As a result of this, position of No.1 cylinder comes to compression TDC.

2 As each camshaft sprocket tends to rotate by itself, pay attention not to injure

fingers or other bodily part. Especially be careful with the right bank.

3 In case the right bank camshaft sprocket rotates excessively, be cautious not to

rotate more than the initial stable position. Always align timing mark of rotating

sprocket by turning it reversely. In this case, pay attention not to rotate It

reversely from the initial position. (if. with one sprocket fixed at No.1

compression TDC position, the other sprocket is rotated one revolution

clockwise or counterclockwise, then the intake and exhaust valve might intetfere

each other)

7. After installing the timing bell, exert the reverse directed force to the right bank

exhaust camshaft sprocket to give tension on the belt. Holding this state, recheck it

each timing mark is correctly positioned.

S. With tensioner pulley slightly pushing the belt down, tighten the center bolt

slightly.

9. Pull out the auto tensioner set pin


How to adjust timing belt tension

1. Tension setting (While auto tensioner is not operating: And set pin being kept

installed.).

1) After rotating crankshaft 1/4 revolution reversely, rotate it clockwise to position

No.1 cylinder at TDC. Then, loosen the center bolt and give the belt 50 kg-cm of

tension with tensioner pulley socket (Two pins are attached) and torque wrench.

While maintaining this state, tighten the center bolt to the standard torque.

Center bolt standard torque 43 - 55 Nm (430 - 550 kg-cm, 31.72 - 40.57 ft. lbs.)

Image

2) Pull out the auto tensioner fixing pin.

2. How to check tension (While auto tensioner is operating: and fixing pin being

un-installed.)

1) After rotating crankshaft 2 revolutions clockwise to position No.1 cylinder at

TDC wait for about 5 minutes, and measure the amount of protruding of the auto

tensioner rod.

Caution: This is "leak down" time for the auto tensioner rod to protrude 1mm

when tension caused by rotation of the crankshaft has changed.

Image

2) Check if the amount of rod protruding is in the range of 3.8 -4.5 mm.

3. Recheck if each sprocket is within the specified range.

Notice: ¡fit is not within the specified range, repeat from procedure 6 as service

procedure of timing bell and auto tensioner installation method. Refer to Timing

Belt; Service and Repair.

REMOVAL

CAUTION: The following procedure can only be used when the camshaft sprockets HAVE NOT BEEN LOOSENED or removed from the camshafts. Refer to Camshaft Gear/Sprocket and Timing Components, if sprocket(s) or camshaft(s) have been loosened or removed.

CAUTION: The 3.2/3.5L are NOT freewheeling engines. Therefore, care should be taken not to rotate the camshafts or crankshaft with the timing belt removed.

  1. Disconnect negative cable from remote jumper terminal.
  2. Remove upper radiator crossmember.
  3. Disconnect fan module electrical connector.
  4. Remove cooling fan module and accessory drive belts.
  5. Remove crankshaft damper and front timing belt covers.
  6. Mark belt running direction, if timing belt is to be reused.
CAUTION: When aligning timing marks, always rotate engine by turning the crankshaft. Failure to do so will result in valve and/or piston damage.

f90f2f1.gif Fig. 94

  1. Rotate engine clockwise until crankshaft mark aligns with the TDC mark on oil pump housing and the camshaft sprocket timing marks are between the marks on the rear covers (Fig. 94).
CAUTION: Align the camshaft sprockets between the marks on rear belt covers before timing belt removal or damage to valve and/or pistons could occur.

  1. Using a ink or paint marker; mark the exact position of the camshaft sprocket timing mark relative to the two timing marks on the rear timing cover.
NOTE: When timing belt tensioner is removed from engine, always store in the vertical (plunger facing upward) position

09766f9.gif Fig. 95

  1. Remove the timing belt tensioner (Fig. 95) and remove timing belt.
TIMING BELT TENSIONER

  1. When tensioner is removed from the engine it is necessary to compress the plunger into the tensioner body.
CAUTION: Compress the tensioner slowly, as damage to tensioner could result.

c719a3d.gif Fig. 96

  1. Place the tensioner into a vise and SLOWLY compress the plunger (Fig. 96). Total bleed down of tensioner should take about 5 minutes.
CAUTION: Index the tensioner in the vise the same way it is installed on the engine. This is to ensure proper pin orientation when tensioner is installed on the engine.

  1. When plunger is compressed into the tensioner body install a pin through the body and plunger to retain plunger in place until tensioner is installed.
NOTE: When timing belt tensioner is removed from engine, always store in the vertical (plunger facing upward) position.

INSTALLATION

CAUTION: This procedure can only be used when the camshaft sprockets HAVE NOT BEEN LOOSENED or removed from the camshafts.

CAUTION: If camshafts have moved from the timing marks, always rotate camshaft towards the direction nearest to the timing marks (DO NOT TURN CAMSHAFTS A FULL REVOLUTION OR DAMAGE to valves and/or pistons could result).

a7cd673.gif
Fig. 97

  1. Align the crankshaft sprocket with the TDC mark on oil pump cover (Fig. 97).
  2. Align the camshaft sprockets (to reference mark made upon removal) between the marks on the rear covers (Fig. 94).
  3. Install the timing belt starting at the crankshaft sprocket going in a counterclockwise direction (Fig. 97). Install the belt around the last sprocket. Maintain tension on the belt as it is positioned around the tensioner pulley.
  4. Holding the tensioner pulley against the belt, Install the tensioner into the housing and tighten to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.) . Each camshaft sprocket mark should still fall between the cover marks.
  5. When tensioner is in place pull retaining pin to allow the tensioner to extend to the pulley bracket.
  6. Rotate crankshaft sprocket 2 revolutions and check the timing marks on the camshafts and crankshaft. The marks should line up within their respective locations (Fig. 97). If marks do not line up, repeat procedure.
  7. Install timing belt covers and crankshaft damper.
  8. Install accessory drive belts and cooling fan module.
  9. Install upper radiator crossmember.
  10. Connect negative cable to remote jumper terminal.
  11. Start engine and allow to idle for approximately 1 minute. If a noise is present from the timing belt/tensioner, air has possibly entered the tensioner.
    1. To remove air from tensioner; using a DRB III, operate the engine at speed of 1600-2000 RPM for 10 minutes. This will purge air from tensioner.
NOTE: If air is present, the timing belt tensioner will be soft and may generate noise. This noise should disappear after no more than 15 minutes of engine running time.

How two set timeing? how do u line the spurkets up to put it in time?


Align the mark on the crank sprocket with the edge of the intermediate pulley, and the cam sprocket mark with the top right edge of the valve cover. Be aware that as you tension the belt that the cam sprocket will move a few degrees, so allow for this when setting them up! It's tricky so be sure they are aligned properly by rotating the engine through 2 complete revolutions by hand and recheck the alignment. More than 1 sprocket tooth off and engine will run poorly and have little power... Hope this helps...;-)

Belt tensioner


Take all the slack out of the long side of the belt and I like to use a pry bar to push against the tensioner and it'll take the rest of the slack out. Rotate the engine by hand twice forward and once backwards and double check to make sure your timing marks are still lined up. If so, you're good. If not loosen the belt again, but this time move the cam sprocket 1 tooth advance and do the same thing over again. This should be right on the money after you rotate the engine twice forward and once in backwards.
