Question about 1995 Honda Civic
I was woundering how would a first timer change a cam belt on a 1500cc sohc v-tec does the belt its self have to be lined up to any thang??or do the cams have to line up with the cranck cause i've relased the tentioner and i didint really mark it to well and i allso was turning on the crank trying to get the big pully off
You MUST time the cams within a couple teeth or you may cause the valves to hit the top of the pistons when the engine turns. If you don't have a repair manual for your car go get one now so you have the directions in front of you. In the meantime, turn your cams so all valves are closed, then turn your crankshaft until you can see the timing mark. Ultimately the belt itself lines up to nothing, but the cams must have all the valves closed when the piston is rising on the compression stroke, and keep them closed until after the spark plug fires. So the crankshaft and the cams must be timed precisely.
