Easiest way to check a timing belt without looking too hard: Does the engine spin over faster than normal with little or no compression? If so, belt has gone away. Dont guess when replacing it. Get a manual!!!

I have a 92 pontiac sunbird le 4cyl 207000 miles and driving home today the abs light in the dash just started flashing any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.


When your abs light comes on it means that something is wrong with you ABS system. Sometimes the abs sensor get durty and can make the ABS light come on in the dash.

Timing belt instalation 92 sunbird


Click on the following free direct LinkS. These are for your 1992 Pontiac Sunbird. They have both: the 2.0L 4-Cylinder and 3.1L V6 Engine Diagrams with the various engine options (AC/No AC etc.)
This First Link has the Belt Diagram/Front Engine Diagrams you will need to remove in order to gain access to the Timing Belt Cover, which also has to be removed so you can remove the Timing Belt.

This Second Link are the Timing Belt Diagrams, complete with Instructional Diagrams.

As far as a Step-by-Step procedure: It would literally take dozens of Pages using this type of forum. I strongly suggest for your sake: to purchase a Haynes or Chilton Manual, available at most auto parts stores for around $20-$25. These have every step-by-step procedure you will need; including the Torques Specifications for each and every Bolt and/or Nut you are removing or loosening.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

My 92 pontiac sunbird engine sound like it is missing. I changed the spark plugs and wires. It sounds better but still misses. What should I do.


I had the same problem with my 92 sunbird. after a long time of fooling around, we finally figured out it was the ignition module, it the part that is responsible for firing the spark plugs, mine was only running 2 of the four cylinders.

thers a oil psi senser that wont let the fuel pump run at low psi when the car worms the psi gos down ,the fuel rely only runs the pump for about five sec as a primer then the oil psi senser takes over thirs a plug righi behind the oil fliter for the senser ,un plug it and put ajumper wire across it as a test ,you may need a oil pump
