    The Timing Belt Could be Damaged or Off. Check this when you replace the Cover. If the Timing Belt is Off, Get a New one and Replace. You will need to have someone Reset the Timing But, I think that it is Probably OK. Please Rate my Solution, I need all the Help that I can Get! Thanks!

    I am in the process of replacing the Power Steering Pump on my 2006 Ford F-250 Lariat w/ 6.0L Diesel. Need solutions on how to fix it...

    I forgot to mention during our chat that to remove the serpentine belt, all you have to do is pull the tensioner back. The tensioner has a square hole in it. Use a 1/2" breaker bar and stick it into the hole and pull the tensioner back to release the tension while you slip the belt off of one of the pullies. You don't have to take the belt off of all of them...Just so you get it off of the power steering pump pully.

    What is a tensioner & how often do they break?

    Tensioners are a sort of pulley that spins on a bearing that puts pressure/tension on a belt. Tensioners are recommended to be replaced about 50-60 K miles when doing routine belt service like a timing belt or serpentine belt. If they are not replaced the bearings can wear out and lock the tensioner and possibly break it.

    How to replace a water pump

    Hi there,

    In removing the water pump, these tips would help you carry out the task:
    • Disconnect the car's negative battery cable.
    • Drain the engine coolant by opening the drain fitting at the bottom of the radiator with pliers and letting the coolant drain into a large container. Move the container to the drain plugs at the engine block and drain the rest of the coolant from there.
    • Remove the drive belts by loosening their tensioner lock nuts and adjuster bolts with a wrench and slipping the belts off the pulleys.
    • Remove the drive belt idler pulley bracket and the right side engine mount with its brackets--support the engine from above with a hoist or engine support fixture, remove the upper mount bracket and through-bolt with the wrench, raise the engine higher and remove the lower bracket and mount.
    • Remove the timing chain tensioner cover and the water pump cover from the timing chain cover.
    • Press the timing chain's piston inward. Insert an appropriate size pin into the tensioner hole to lock it in place. Rotate the crankshaft 20 degrees counterclockwise with a breaker bar and socket at the pulley to loosen the water pump sprocket chain.
    • Remove the pump's two mounting bolts with a wrench. insert two M8 bolts that are three to four inches long into the bolt holes and tighten them evenly until they force the pump out of the engine.
    • Clean off any corrosion and sealant using a rag with acetone or lacquer thinner. Clean and remove all traces of gasket material from the engine surface.
    For the installation:
    • Install new O-rings onto the replacement pump and apply a light coat of grease to the rings.
    • Attach the pump to the engine and tighten the bolts by hand first, using a small amount of RTV sealant on the bolt threads. Tighten the bolts in quarter-turn increments to between 61 and 86 foot-pounds.
    • Rotate the crankshaft 20 degrees clockwise with the breaker bar and socket to tighten the timing chain around the water pump sprocket.
    • Remove the pin from the timing chain tensioner. Clean off the water pump cover and tensioner cover, apply RTV sealant ot them and install them back on the timing chain cover.
    • Reinstall the right side engine mount with its bolts and brackets and then lower the engine off the hoist. Reinstall the drive belt idler pulley bracket.
    • Reinstall the drive belts--check the owner's manual for the routing path--and tighten them with the wrench on the bolts/nuts.
    • Refill the engine coolant at the radiator filler neck, using a fresh mixture of water and antifreeze if the old coolant is contaminated.
    • Reconnect the battery cable.
    Glad to be of help...

    How do i take the heads off of the motor and whats the specks to put a new one back on

    I don't recommend that unless you have a full set of tools and a lot pf patience and organizational skills. But here goes. Remove the coolant, drain the oil, disconnect the battery cable. remove the spark plug wires. Remove all cables and wires going to the intake. Remove the air cleaner and hoses connected to it. Remove all heater hoses and raciator hoses. Remove all the vacuum lines, remove the fuel lines,caution they are pressurized and may spray gas into the engine compartment. Remove the serpintene belt and alternator, air pump, and ac compressor. Remove timeing chain cover. Remove timing chain. Note where the timing marks are on the crankshaft and on the cam or cams if you have more than one cam. Remove the intake manifold, remove valve covers. If you have have push rods for the valves remove them. You will have to back off the pressure on the valve lifters to remove most of them. Remove the head bolts and lift the head free of the engine. Keep everything in perfect order. The water pump and timing chain often uses different length bolts that must be put back in the same holes. Also the push rods are supposed to be put back in the exact order as some may have worn more than others. To reinstall just clean all gasket surfaces on the head, engine block, intake and exhaust manifolds, valve covers, timing chain cover, thermostat cover, etc. I would go ahead and replace the timing belt or chain, depending on which engine you have. I would also go ahead and replace the spark plugs and wires too. Once everything is cleaned up, just reverse the order

    Timing chain is loose how do I replace or tighten

    You need to pull out the timing cover. 4-6 hours of work. Here is the step to remove the Cover, then you need to remove the Sprockets.
    1. Remove the oil pan.
    2. Remove the power steering belt if so equipped.
    3. Remove the air conditioning belt, compressor and bracket if so equipped.
    4. Remove the fan clutch (fluid coupling), with the fan and water pump pulley.
    5. Matchmark and remove the crankshaft pulley(s). This bolt will be very tight. Use the counter-holding bar, properly installed, to hold the crankshaft while loosening the bolt. Use the pulley extractor or gear puller to remove the pulley from the shaft.
    6. Remove the water bypass pipe.
    7. Remove the fan belt adjusting bar. If necessary, remove the lower power steering bracket for access.
    8. Disconnect the heater water outlet pipe.
    9. Unbolt the timing chain cover assembly. Be careful to loosen only the correct bolts.

    To install:
    1. Install new gaskets over the dowels on the timing chain cover. Slide the cover assembly over the dowels and pump spline. Insert the retaining bolts and tighten them. Tighten the 8mm bolts to 9 ft. lbs. (13 Nm) and the 10mm bolts to 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm).
    2. Temporarily install the adjusting bar to the alternator. Install the adjusting bar to the chain cover and tighten the bolts to 9 ft. lbs. (13 Nm).
    3. Install the heater water outlet pipe.
    4. Install the water bypass pipe.
    5. Install the crankshaft pulley and bolt. Use the counter-holding tool to hold the pulley and tighten the bolt to 116 ft. lbs. (157 Nm). If equipped with air conditioning, install the second crankshaft pulley.
    6. Install the water pump pulley and fluid coupling with the fan.
    7. Adjust the tension on the drive belts.
    8. Install the air conditioning compressor bracket, compressor and belt if they were removed.
    9. Install the power steering belt and adjust it.
    10. Attach the oil pan.
    11. Install the radiator.

    1996 toyota corolla needs a new tensioner on timing belt,how do i do this

    you will need to pull the timing belt covers off, in order to do this you will have to pull your drive belts, crank pulley, and anything esle in your way like maybe the water pump pulley. This job is an easy one for a experienced mechanic but for a beginner it could turn out to be a disaster. If you havent replaced the timing belt i would recommend doing this at the same time, they should be replaced about every 70,000 miles. You will have to make sure both the crankshaft and camshaft marks are aligned with the marks on the engine. If they are not aligned you will bend the valves in the head and this could be a costly repair.

    How to change timing belt

    This is how 2.8TD.Remove the belts (fan and power steering)with a 10mm socket un-screw the plastic cover. To remove the bottom pully their is 3 small screws inside the pully (10mm or 12mm) unscrew them and take off the pully. Do not try to remove the big nut. Remove the plastic cover. Their is a small hole in all the drive wheel's their is a treaded hole in the engine block behind each one and a mark on the crank shaft. Turn the engine until the mark on the crankshaft is at the top then push the bolts ( metric course tread 12 or 13 mm head 4 to 5 ins long) through the holes in the drive wheel's and try to screw them in if they dont line up first time turn the crankshaft 1 turn and try again. When they all line up screw in the bolds this keeps the timing in place. Release the tention pully (the one with no tracks on and pushing against the back of the belt) remove the old belt replace. To tighten the tention pully put a small socket bar in the square hole turn until the belt is tight hold the preasure on the socket bar ant tighten the locking screw. Remove the screws job done.
