How do I switch a crankshaft


Disconnect the battery. Remove the spark plugs. You will need to remove the engine and transmission from the vehicle (unless you have a lift, in which case you only need to remove the transmission.). Separate the engine and transmission. Remove the flex plate (flywheel). Remove the serpentine belt and crankshaft pulley. Remove the timing cover, timing chain, and crankshaft timing gear. Remove the oil pan. You may have to remove the oil pump for clearance. Remove the rod bearing caps. Keep them in proper sequence. Remove the main bearing caps. Keep them in proper sequence. Remove the crankshaft.

You will need new rod and main bearings to replace those already in the vehicle. You will need a new oil pan gasket and timing cover gasket set. Depending upon mileage and age, you may want to replace the timing gears, chain and guides. You must know all proper torque values for the crank and rod bearing caps, flex plate, and timing cover.

As you can well see, this is not a job for the auto DIY novice.

2004 Pilot timing belt replacement



(for the 105,000 mile timing belt service)

Part List :
-Timing belt: 14400-P8A-A02
-Adjuster automatic (hydraulic tensioner): 14520-P8E-A01
-Adjuster - timing belt: 14510-PGE-A01
-Idler pulley - timing belt: 14550-P8A-A01 (OR) 14550-PGE-A01 (there are 2 numbers listed)
-Alternator/Compressor belt: 38920-P8F-A02
-Power steering belt: 56992-P8A-A01
-O-RING (8.8X1.9): 91302-GE0-000
-Fender trip clips (X7): 91501-S04-003

Special Tools Needed:
Honda Crankshaft Pulley Removal Tool
3/4" breaker bar

Procedure:
-Remove tire and place the Pilot on a jack stand.

-Remove the clips holding the fender liner and lower splash shield in place (x7) and fold them out of the way.

-Make sure the #1 piston is on top dead center using the marks on the crank pulley and lower timing belt cover (19mm in the crank pulley).

-Remove the Alternator-Compressor belt (14mm boxend) & Power Steering belt. (2-12mm and 1-12mm tensioner bolt)

-Loosen the crank pulley. If you have an impact wrench or a long breaker bar it makes it easier to remove the bolt. You will also need a special tool crankshaft pulley holder (50mm) (19mm and special tool).

-Remove the side engine mount bracket (5-14mm bolts).

-Remove the crankshaft pulley.

-Remove the oil dipstick & tube (10mm).

-Remove the front & rear 'upper covers' of the timing belt housing, moving the wire harness out of the way first (5-10mm bolts for each cover).

-Remove the lower cover (7-10mm bolts).

-Remove the engine mount bracket that is bolted to the block (3-14mm bolts).

-Remove the hydraulic tensioner (2-10mm bolts).

-Remove the tensioner pulley (you will reuse the inner sleave) (14mm bolt).

-Remove the idler pulley bolt (14mm bolt with thread locker on it) (I used Loctite 242 during the reinstall because I had it on the shelf).

-Remove the timing belt.

-Before installing a new timing belt, make sure the pulleys, belt guide plate, upper & lower covers are clean and check to see if the crank and cams have rotated (mine did not move).

-The install is the reverse order of removal (make sure you torque everything correctly!)

-The removal of the lock pin in the hydraulic tensioner gave me a little trouble so I used pliers.

-Once the crank pulley is back on, check the lower timing mark (and the cam marks) before the top covers are installed.

Crankshaft Pulley 2001 Chevy Malibu coming out. Through Belt how do I get it back aligned?


Hi Crystal,
You will need to know if the crank shaft pulley is coming apart or missing the lock down nut. The ring on the outer edge of the pulley is held in place by molded rubber, I would think this will be your problem.

How to remove serpentene belt in a 2003 ford focus

Consulting your owner's manual should give you an idea of how to replace a belt depending on which belt it is that needs changing. Assuming it is the timing belt that needs to be changed it is a simple process to undertake, though if you are unsure of working on motor cars it may be better to take the vehicle to a garage for professionals to carry out the work.

Firstly check your owner's manual for the recommended mileage for replacing your timing belt. Replacement for a Ford Focus is at 120,000 miles. You need to locate the timing belt and examine it for breaks, damage, fraying, worn spots or looseness.

Disengage the negative battery cable in all models. Detach the passenger inner splash-shield and wheel cover, the accessory drive and timing belts, the tensioner and the crankshaft pulley. Remove the spark plugs, catalytic converter and idler pulley in 2000 and older Ford Focuses. Undo the retaining fasteners and lift the timing belt cover off the engine. Align the crank and camshaft timing marks. Older models call for undoing the water pump pulley and valve cover before locking the camshaft in place. Release the tensioner's bolt. Turn the arm to the right 14 degrees and place a 1/8 inch drill bit in the opening. This secures the belt tensioner in place; you can now take the belt off.

Once you have fitted the new belt you can re-assemble the parts which have been removed in the reverse order.

Hope helps.

Where us my 1996 chevy v6 C1500 pickup timing chain located. I need the area and schematics; as i dont know where to start /


the timing chain on the 4.3 is on the front of the engine. you will need to remove the water pump and the crank pulley to access the timing chain cover. You can see the cover if you look behind and above the crank pulley. the cover will be held on by about 15-20 bolts.

make sure you line up the timing mark on the cam gear with the timing mark on the crank gear. there will be a dot on each. when the are lined up the dot on the crank pulley will be at 12 oclock and the dot on the cam gear will be at six oclock.

you will need a puller to remove the crank pulley and the crank gear. Other than that its just nuts and bolts.

    Replacing timing belt


    a 2003 chevy silverado has a timing chain. In order to change this, you will have to remove the fan and clutch, the water pump, both serpentine belts, and the crankshaft pulley. You cannot reuse the bolt for the crank pulley, so you will have to buy a new one. You will also have to replace the gaskts for the timing chain. Anyways, once those are off, you remove the cover for the timing chain, and you will be able to unbolt and remove the timing chain and sprockets. Note where everything is, so you can return it to the exact same place. Once that is done, put everything back like you saw it when you took it apart, and you should be good to go. Remember to get new gaskets for the water pump, (you should replace the thermostat while you're in there as well) and make sure your belts are in good shape. Also check your idler pulleys and tensioners to make sure they're not worn out. Good luck, and enjoy your time under the hood.

    How do i reset the timing belt on a 2002 dodge interpid 3.5 v6


    1. Remove the passenger headlight and disconnect the negative terminal of the battery
    2. Drain the radiator.
    3. Remove the driver’s side headlight
    4. Remove the upper radiator cowl. (That’s the big metal piece running across the front of the car. don't forget the hood latch.)
    5. Disconnect the small hose on the driver's side, top of the radiator. 
    6. Remove the four bolts holding the fans to the radiator.
    7. The fans can be removed by pushing them towards the passenger side, raising the driver’s side above the lower radiator hose, then coming back towards the drivers side.
    8. Loosen both belt tensioners and remove the belts. The bolt going through the pulley locks the tensioner in place.  Loosen it and then back off the tensioner bolt.
    9. Using the Chrysler Harmonic Balancer Removal Tool (Available at AutoZone), remove the harmonic balancer.
    10. Remove the serpentine belt tensioner completely.
    11. Remove the bolts on the aluminum timing belt cover on the driver's side.
    12. Remove the bolts on the stamped steel timing belt cover.  (Do not scrape the gasket material off, it is reusable.)
    13. Using the crank bolt and an 18mm socket, rotate the crank to TDC.  There’s an arrow on the pulley and TDC marked on the block.
    14. If the car is in time, the slot in each cam should line up between the two dots on the block at 12 o'clock.  If not, rotate the crank once and check again.
    15. If the marks do not line up, some adjustment of the cams will be needed before placing the new belt on.
    16. Loosen the timing belt tensioner out slowly.  Complete removal is not necessary.
    17. Pull the old belt off.  If the crank are in time, they will not rotate.  TDC (and 6-7 o'clock) is a natural resting place.  If they are out of time, have someone hold the cams with a breaker bar (not a ratchet) and socket before removing the timing belt, then SLOWLY rotate them to TDC.
    18. The passenger’s side cam should be set a little to the right of the two dots.  This allows the cam to time properly when tightening the tensioner.
    19. Install the new timing belt by starting at the crank, then up over the driver’s side cam, under the water pump, and over the passenger’s side cam.  
    20. Slowly tighten the tensioner back up and watch the timing of the passenger's side cam.  You may have to back it off and adjust the cam to allow for the rotation while tightening the tensioner.
    21. Reinstall the covers, then the crank pulley. The crank pulley bolt can be used to draw the crank pulley back onto the crank shaft.
    22. The rest is putting everything back on in the reverse order.
     
    NOTE: Depending on mileage, I suggest replacing the water pump while you're in there.  It's fairly cheap and will save you a lot of time and trouble if it were to go out later; cause you'd get to do this all again!
