I have a knocking in my 99 subaru Legacy L it has a 2.2 and all new parts in the timing chain area, what could it be? When purchased put all new parts, sprockets, pulley and tentioners and belt on new. It...

I think I would pull the timing covers back off and see if one of the pulleys etc. is loose. Did you put the proper tension on the timing belt? It is also easy to put that belt on one tooth off, the motor will still run and can produce the knocking noise, take care and good luck. ps I assume the oil level is good in the motor.

I changed my timing belt, water pump and I belive the harmonic tensioner when my rodeo turned 100k. A year later I heard a knocking noise coming from the area where the timing belt is located. The noise...

Yes its the correct name. Yes it should have been replaced..... but its up to the mechanics advice and the customer. its not normally replaced, but I replace all parts including the water pump, just as a matter off service, to avoid your exact problem.

Does My 93 Camry have a timing chain or Belt ? when to change it?

its timing belt. This car requires the timing belt to be serviced at every 60k miles. This engine is a non-interference motor, so the engine will not get damaged internally if belt breaks. But other parts externally can become damaged. Also at the same time the timing belt is changed, replace the water pump, idler and tensioner pulleys.

Loud knocking from engine, could it be a throw out bearing?

No. The throw out bearing is in a manual transmission. And it wouldn't be knocking, it would be screaming. The knocking, is, probably the timing belt tensioner. They get loud, especially on Rodeos and especially when they give out. Unless the engine is missing and skipping, I would suspect the tensioner. have you had the timing belt changed? Good thing. Get a new belt with the marks on it, and the tensioner, and a water pump. Change them all while you are in there. Trust me. I have 3 Rodeos. If you think it might be something else, a compression check might help, Or get a mechanic with a stethoscope to put his ear on it. Or get a piece of 1/2 dowel about 3 ft long, cup your hand over one end and put your ear in the cup and touch the other end, carefully to any part of the car while running, watch out for the fan and listen to the different parts. You'll here it and know where it is. Hope this helps.

How do i put the time on the timing belt?

Timing is not adjustable. If you need to replace the timing belt , let someone who knows how do it. Kia's are interference engines which means that if you do not do the belt exactly right , you will destroy your engine. Find a good mechanic , but avoid dealerships , they tend to way overcharge.

Timing belt is broken, how to tell damage w/o teardown

Compression test. Typically, when a timing belt breaks, some of the valves hit the piston on the compression stroke.
If you are very lucky, you might avoid rebuilding the head. However, odds are that this is what you are facing.

Good luck with it. I'll keep good thoughts for ya. Let me know what you find.

Knocking/pinging sound when stepping on the gas for power.

you will distroy the engine if you continue to let this noise happen.
the timing must be retarded to get the ping out if its that bad.
most of the time if its just a little bit though filling the tank with super unleaded will take out the noise.
the distributer must be loosend and turned in the correct way to ****** the timing and the idle must be put back up to compensate.
the distributer is the ignition timing.
the other thing that could have happend is the timing may have jumped time on the timing belt itself.this is a complely different timing.
this timing is valve timing.
the distributer is ignition timing.
when the distributer is turned you are changing the ignition timing .
you say in your text and i quote .

The service tech only adjusted the distributor fas far as he could to lower the idle.

a tech should never be turning the distributer to lower the idle nor should this be explained in any way to the customer.

if a tech says he dosent understand something stop them rightaway and get your car out of there or get someone else to talk to .
10 times out of 10 if the tech dosnet get it the car wont get it either.
have a competent service tech test and conferm the timing belt or chain timing .

keep me posted

thank you

Check engine and engine noise on 1995 Nissan altima

This car does not have a timing chain, it has a belt. The reason your knock sensor and O2 sensor is coming on is likely because your timing belt has stretched which caused it to jump time. Since the engine is not properly timed the fuel mixture is off and the engine is pinging/knocking and that is why the knock sensor is coming up. The sensors are doing their job and keeping the engine from blowing. You should put a timing belt on the car ASAP. I recommend changing the tensionors while you are at it.
