Should I change the timing belt on my 05 aveo at 60000 miles like recommended?


Absolutely !! That motor is probably an interference motor, meaning the valves must be closed when the piston is up or they will interfere with each other and break something - or several somethings!! I have repaired cylinder heads from interference motors that had a timing belt break - it cost 3 times the rebuild cost due to the extensive damage done when the timing belt broke. It would be considerably cheaper to have the belt changed than to have the head repaired or replaced, as modern heads are thin walled - they will break before older heads would. It could also damage a piston and,as you have hypereutectic pistons balanced by weight ( must be within a couple grams of each other ) 1 piston cannot be changed - they ALL have to be changed, an expensive oops for sure!!!

My 04 chevy aveo just had the timing belt and water pump replaced, and then the mechanic said 2 of the 4 cylinders were bad and the vlaves were bent. does that happen?


I just wanna know how was it possible for him to know the (hidden under the cylinder head cover) valves were bent while only changing the timing belt and water pump ( both located at the side of the engine).

How to change water pump on 04 endeaver. It just started making noise on slow sharp turns. Fluid level is good and belt is not loose.


The noise could thn be coming from the power steering pump, its worth checking before you go for the water pump!

Changing a timing belt on 04 aveo


We've repaired 3 at our Chevy shop so far so you'll have to trust me when I say it's not for the faint of heart or for anyone without the special tools it takes to hold the cams in place. It is quite a job! Sorry!!

2004 aveo timing belt broke, all valves bent


just go to any junk yard and find a used deawoo lanos and pull the head if timing belt was not broke, if it looks good, its a exact fit 100%, no special tools needed, just normal wrench set and torqe wrench. after head is installed, get a gates timing belt only.

Tune up


At 60,000 you should have all the major things done if you haven't already:
oil change(every 3000)
air filter change(every 15,000)
coolant flush(every 30,000)
spark plugs and wires(every 30,000)
transmission fluid & filter change(every 30,000)
brakes (as needed)
PCV valve (every 20,000)

You can wait until about 75000 miles to do your timing belt.

Hope this helps
