I have to change a timing belt and alternator belt on a 1994 toyota paseo tomorrow and I don't know the first thing about timing an engine. Can you please help me. I also don't know where to get a diagram. And I'm trying to do this as inexpensively as possible.

Re: changing a timing belt
Timing is no easy task it has to be perfect ! off one way or the other could result in damaging the valve's so if your going to do this yourself takeyour time check and recheck your marks. most auto zones & advance auto's can print you a diagram.if not then they will sell a hanes repair manual.this would be your best way to go they are about $15 also always remember not to over tighten the timing belt. hope this helps thanks for choosing FixYa.

If you are using a voltage meter when the car is running check the volts coming off of the alternator they should be reading between 13.5 and 14.5. This will tell you if the alternator is doing its job. If not check the belt tension on the alternator
First of all, bring your number one piston to top. Number one is the first one from the right (passenger side). There is a mark for this on the front of the belt cover. The timing mark on the crankshaft pulley should be aligned with 0. There will be two horizontal pit marks on one camshaft sprocket and one (a little bigger) on the other camshaft sprocket. These should fit together. Now the timing mark on the face of the timing belt sprocket should be a couple of degrees to the right of straight up. There will be a 5E on the timing belt sprocket. This 5E is what needs to be just to the right of straight up. Tighten everything down and your engine should start.
the valve timming is off . or the valves are stuck open because of engine damage . this is a crash motor . if the timming belt broke while driving the motor is junk or at best needs major work to repair . you can get a belt diagrm on line or at a locl parts stor . or your libary . good luck on this one
i had the same problem the thing is that in the base of the A/C compressor the screw had a washer on both sides i remove them and problem solve ;-)
forgive me if i misspelled something i am from Puerto Rico ;)
GOOD EVENING, TWO THINGS WHY; AND EASY TO LOOK AND FIX. LOOK AT THE BATTERY COLD CRANKING AMPS. MAKE SURE ITS THE RIGHT ONE FOR TOYOTA PASEO. IS SHOULD BE 550CCA. IF THE BATTERY IS GOOD. HAVE THE ALTERNATOR CHECK. EITHER THE ALTERNATOR IS OVERCHARGING OR NOT CHARGING AT ALL.
