SOURCE: need to change timing belt in 93 ford festiva but

Changing the timing belt is something that usually needs done if it has not been changed and the car has over $100,000 miles. Most Festivas last for a lot longer than that. Mine is going on well over 200,000! All you need is the Festiva shop manual which you can find on eBay for about $10 to $30, if you hunt around and wait for a bargain. The manual fully explains every step and makes it easy if you are mechanically inclined. If you are new to auto repair, make sure you have someone who knows what they are doing check it for you, so that the repair will be safe and last. If you have a large library near you, its possible to find a Chiltons or other brand of repair manual that covers your Festiva timing belt repair procedure.

SETTING THE TIMING/93 SC400


Setting the cam timing in the SC400 incorrectly can result in valve damage and possible piston damage. If you already have it apart it may be too late. The engine has to be at TDC for the crankshaft before removal of the timing belts. Rolling the cams independent of crankshaft will cause an open valve to contact the piston.(very expensive)

The cambelt it just came lose and the car switch itself off,so i want to replece the tensioner and the combelt,it is nesessarly to replece the velve


It does depend on your engine design. Essentially if there is limited clearance (interference fit) between your piston head and valve then damage is likely otherwise you may be fortunate enough to replace the belt and be on your way. Important not to try to turn the engine over without at belt or the belt not installed correctly as this could cause damage.

I have a '93 Acclaim with the Mitsubishi 3.0L V6. The car has 115,000 miles on it. The original timing belt (and water pump) were replaced at 60,000 miles. A repair shop just told me the engine was...


GOOD IF YOU COULD FIX IT YOUR SELF.OR TAKE IT TO ANOTHER MECHANIC.IF YOU COULD FIX TIMING BELT THEN DO A COMPRESSION AND A CYLINDER LEAK DOWN TEST AT EACH CYLINER WITH CLOSED VALVES.VALVE COVERS NEEDS TO BE OFF BEFORE YOU CAN SEE VALVE CLOSED POSITION.IF AIR BLEEDS MORE THAN 40% YOU HAVE BENT VALVES YOU WILL HEAR AIR GUSH AT INTAKE OR OUT EXHAUST PIPES.YOU KNOW VALVES BEEN.I REMEMBER I HAD 1977 CHEVY MONZA TIMING BELT BROKE.BY GOOD LUCK AND GODS WILL DIDNT DAMAGE VALVES NOR PISTONS PUT NEW TIMING BELT ON ENGINE RAN FINE.WHEN MY TIMING BELT BROKE ALL MY PISTONS WAS MIDWAY OF THE ENGINE.THAT SAVE MY VALVES AND PISTON. LIKE I SAY DO BOTH TEST FIRST THEN YOU WILL KNOW IF ENGINE DAMAGED.

A broken timming belt on a ford focus 16v, will there be damage done to the head and valves?


Highly probable
A broken timing belt will result in the pistons hitting the valves this can either bend or break the valves causing damage to the head and possibly to the pistons as well.

Timing belt on 2001 pt cruiser went


Have you installed a new timing belt? If yes then you must do a compression test on each cylinder to verify no piston/valve damage. Your motor is not a freewheeling one. Damage is most likely to occur if your belt has failed.

Does a broken timing belt permanently damage a Mercury Tracer


depends on the Engine in the car.

1.9L SOHC (SEFI on Valve Cover)engine, no, they are non-interferance engines, put a new timing belt on it and go.

1.8 DOHC engine, yes, it will destroy the valves, head, pistons, and if really bad, the block too. These engines are interferance engines, where the valves just barely miss the piston as it comes up, and when the belt breaks it will hit the valves and destroy the engine.
