I'd like to replace these belts on my civic but it looks like the drivers side engine mount must be removed to accomplish this.  Can you recommend any shortcuts or hints on doing this job?   Thanks, Jim

97 Honda civic won't start. Has had timing belt and pulley replaced along with rotor button

Did the timing belt break? Are you 100% that it is "in time" correctly? Does it spin over effortlessly? If so,do a compression check,and make sure you dont have any bent/broken valves,or blown head gasket.

Does 1997 honda civic have freewheeling timing belt? If timing belt breaks what damage can be caused?

According to Gates belts, your engine is not freewheeling but interference. If belt breaks
damage is extensive so if it needs changing better do it. Honda usually offers a package
deal where they change the timing belt, water pump and all accessory belts.

Thought there were separate accessory belts for each
device, alternator, ps pump, a/c compressor, etc. plus
your timing belt. If that needs replacement, Honda will
usually replace the water pump and the accessory belts
with a package deal. If you feel the car is wort it, it's
money well spent.

How to remove water pump form honda civic 1994 ex

The water pump is located underneath the timing belt cover, on the drivers side of the engine. To swap the water pump, you need to remove the timing belt cover, timing belt, and the timing belt tensioner. I usually tell people that this can be done in a day, but sometimes not ! Also, all of the other drive belts , such as Air conditioning and the alternator belt all need removed too.

Belt diagram 1997 toyota corolla? alternator belt replacement?

The 97 Corolla has three accessory belts. The alternator belt is the one you see when you look down on the passenger side standing near the front of the engine compartment. If fits over the alternator and the engine pulley. The belt beneath it is the a/c belt (if the car has a/c). It fits over the engine pulley and the a/c compressor. The power steering belt is toward the rear of the engine compartment, on the same side. It fits around the engine pulley and the power steering pump.

Replacing the alternator belt is not too difficult. Standing in front of the car and facing towards the rear, loosen the locking bolt under the right side of the alternator. Then loosen the alternator hinge bolt on top of the alternator. Now you are ready to loosen the alternator belt tensioner adjustment bolt, accessed under the alternator from the front. Turn the tensioner until the old belt is loose enough to remove, then turn it further so that the new belt will go on easily. Replace the belt and re-tension until you have about 1/4 in. to 1/8 in. of play in the belt, tighten the lock bolt and the hinge bolt, and run the engine. If the belt squeals it means you need more tension, but do not overtension. Recheck it after a few days.

I have a 1997 Honda Civic with the vtec engine. I

If the engine calls for a 5w 30 weight motor oil,then stick with it,and use a blend,or full synthetic oil,castrol is the best,and use this fuel treatment,if you want to see a difference in fuel usage ,LUCAS fuel treatment,use it with as less as possible,fuel.It will work better,to clean the fuel system,and the injectors.Make sure the battery is real good,and check the alternator at the battery with engine running,it should read,13.65 volts,to 14.25 volts,with everything on,anything less,is not enough,replace the alternator.If the charging system,battery included,is not up to par,then the alternator works hard all the time trying to charge the battery up to full ,and it never does,because of ,either the battery is not in good shape,or the alternator is charging too little,and when the alternator engages,it pulls down on the engine,therefore using fuel more.
