Try a cheap fix... buy a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze and put them in the tank either right away or at your next fill up of gas. it sounds like water in your gas.

How to change the drive belt


One assumes the reference here is to the timing belt running hidden under a cover on the passenger side of the engine and NOT one of the external belts that drive the alternator, AC pump and power steering pump.

The timing belt requires precision installation. Its typically a full day task for an experienced mechanic with air tools. Precision installation first requires precision removal and preparation. To access the timing belt remove the passenger front wheel and the center sections only of the wheel well liner that expose view to side of engine. Then loosen tensioner bolts on external belts and remove external belts from the center main drive sheave. They can hang on the remote drive sheaves if desired. Remove upper and lower external covers from timing belt. Using old cloth, wipe the back-wall of the timing enclosure clean of dust and check for oil or coolant leaks. Find yellow chalk or Yellow lumber marking crayon. Look very carefully with bright light for timing marks on anything that rotates and for corresponding mark. At TDC of cylinder 1 all observable marks should simultaneously align. Cylinder 1 is on the rear engine bank closest to passenger seat. Rotate engine manually with battery disconnected and ignition off until alignment of all marks observed. Only then do you release the tensioner and remove the old timing belt. While the timing belt is removed is an excellent time to replace the cooling water pump. There is no timing mark on the water pump, only on the sheaves that drive the camshafts and on the main drive sheave. Also no timing marks on the idler pulleys.

Once the new belt is installed with everything verified in proper alignment and new water pump installed too, the idler pulleys can be set and spring loaded. Then manually rotate the engine through one complete cycle until all marks aligned again. Check torque on all bolts, then start reassembly of timing belt shield first, then external belts and adjust tensioners. Reinstall center wheel well liner sections and then reinstall the wheel and torque the lug nuts.

Reconnect the battery and start the vehicle. If all properly aligned it will immediately start. If anything improperly aligned, you now have BIG problem and likely permanent engine damage. Alignment of the timing belt rollers and sheaves absolutely critical, one omission and the engine is toast. Do it right and enjoy another 60K miles before you have to change the Kia timing belt yet again.

I have an 04 kia sedona.wont start.recently had replaced timing belt complete tune up water pump serpentine belt and ignition coil.just for maintenance. It rode for about a month and then wouldn't...


recheck the timing belt to make sure it was done right,if the belt slips your engine will not start, maybe it was installed incorrectly.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

I have no clue on how to replace water pump on a 1995 chrysler cirrus 2.5L. I have to do this myself I dont have the money for a garage.


This is found on the autozone.com website.

2.5L Engine
See Figures 3 through 7
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Place a large drain pan under the radiator drain plug. Drain and properly contain the engine coolant.

This procedure requires removing the engine timing belt and the auto tensioner. To help assure proper alignment at assembly, it may be helpful to set the engine at TDC on No. 1 compression stroke. This should align all timing marks on the crankshaft sprocket and both camshaft sprockets.
  1. Remove the accessory drive belts and crankshaft damper.
  2. Remove the right engine mount. This requires safely supporting the engine with a floor jack and wood block so the mount can be removed.
  3. Remove the timing belt covers.
  4. Remove the timing belt and tensioner.

Fig. Fig. 7: Always keep the water pump's mounting bolts lined up with their correct mounting holes

  1. Remove the water pump mounting bolts.
  2. Separate the water pump from the water inlet pipe and remove the pump.

To install:
  1. Thoroughly clean all sealing surfaces. Inspect the pump for damage or cracks, signs of coolant leakage at the vent, and excessive looseness or rough turning bearings. Any problems require a new pump.
  2. Install a new O-ring on the water inlet pipe. Wet the O-ring with water to make installation easier. DO NOT use oil or grease on the O-ring.
  3. Install a new gasket on the water pump and fit the pump inlet opening over the water pipe. Press the assembly together to force the pipe into the water pump.
  4. Install the water pump-to-engine bolts and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  5. Install the timing belt and timing belt tensioner. Set the timing belt tension.
  6. Install the timing belt covers. Install the right engine mount. Remove the floor jack and engine block from underneath the engine.
  7. Install the crankshaft damper.
  8. Install the accessory drive belts and set to the proper tension.
  9. Connect the negative battery cable.
  10. Fill and bleed the engine cooling system.
  11. Start the engine and verify proper operation, with no leaks

Water pump and timing belt replacement


confirm you timing belt marking at the engine before you start the work. then dismantle all the belt one by one until you reach the timing cover. mark the timing mark again. then start dismantle the timing belt set. after all the belt are out, open the water pump and start to put back the new part by using reverse order from the opening list. make sure the timing marking are the same as you check at the first time. before you start the engine, make sure you turn the engine 2 or 3 round and make sure no part are hitting. good luck.

Replaced water pump on 1994 3.4L camaro, put wires back on coil and can't get my car to start. it turns but wont start, what do i do? is the wire formation wrong???


double check ignition wire placement. Make sure the coil didn't get disconnected somehow. Most likely you have the plug wires jacked up.

1995 camry has no ignition fire


T.E. Coil looks normal. Replaced cap & rotor while there, new plugs. No joy. Pulled back timing belt cover a bit for a look see and looked normal. Used probe to get T.D.C. on #1 and checked rotor position.....again looked like right position. Loosened distributor and rotated to extreme stop, down (advanced?). Nothing. Rotated to opposite and it fired. Didn't let it run (was like it was 180 off, or wires crossed) as I have been told this is an interference engine, just enough to confirm I'm not completely nuts, and fuel, compression, and spark will do something (thank God). Is it possible the timing belt has slipped a tooth? I have had them go, but always completely, not "slip". Then again, those were for the most part, Ford Escorts with 1.8\1.9 engines (ran a fleet of delivery cars in a past life) and they always let go completely. Of course, the acronym for planned obsolescence is F.O.R.D., but I digress....... Replace the belt? Thanks so much.
