Unless something has bent this should not be an issue. The only other time I have run into something like this is when the tension is not correct on the belt. If that doesn't have the spring loaded tension pulley you will find an adjustment on the alternator bracket. If it does have a spring loaded system then you need to replace that spring in the tension arm.

Ok, i have a 2005 chevy aveo and i ould like to


NOW. These cars are notorious for timing belts snapping and GM has advised to replace at 60K. I have this car and it has an interference engine, meaning that if the belt snaps there is a good chance the engine's pistons will bend the intake/exhaust valves, meaning you would have to have the engine rebuilt if this happens.

I am about to have mine changed, along with the water pump and tensioner since the water pump should be replaced before 100,000 and involves the same labor. I've found that at a Chevy dealership the whole package ranges from $500-$800 depending on who you call.

Drive pulley spins and slides forward and back to motorwhich in turn throws belt off so what i need to know is how to replace drive pulley or if it is repairable with a lock key


Which pulley are you talking about? Is it the Idler Pulley that applies pressure to the belt? That is typically the pulley that goes bad first which can be replaced. The bearing will go bad and won't stay flat causing the belt to wander. If you get a new pulley or idler assembly replace the belt at the same time for peace of mind.

Timing belt Broke are valves worped?


Hello momma_green: My name is Roger and I will help you. The 2005 Chevy Aveo 1.6 engine is a interference motor. That means if the timing belt breaks.The valves will be bent. I have one in my shop now that the belt broke on it. Bent all 16 valves and damaged all 4 pistons. This is not a forgiving motor. I wish I could tell you good news but I cant. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Daewoo Leganza 2000 timing belt broke


Hi.
If the idler pulley, broke, with the car running, (I think is the most probable), There is no way to fix the car just replacing the timing belt and the idler pulley. This is an interference engine, that means if the timing belt or the idler pulley breaks, you need to replace the whole cylinder head, that's because the valves are bent. I just fix my daewoo, I tried first to just change the idler pulley and set up the time, but it did not work. I had to replace the whole head cylinder, timing belt and pulleys.

I got the information to set up the timing belt from a Library, The program is Mitchell on demand.

Thanks
