I cannot find the Cylinder block plug on Mitsubishi galant 2.4L

I am doing my first timing belt and I no idea where the plug is on the block to put my screw driver in it so I can hold the counterbalance shaft. The picture that I get from allldata is horrible and gives no written location as to where it is.

My 2005 lancer 2.4L SOHC cylinder block plug is located just under the exhaust maniflod on the engine block. Look under the front, centre of the car just behind the exhaust manifold at the same level as the oil pump pulley. It took me a long time to find it. I had to remove the entire plastic splash shield to find it and access it. I'm sure it will be in the same place on all the 2.5L regardless of what model you have. email me if you need more help. darret@shaw.ca.

There is a 14mm bolt that you have to remove just follow the side of the block where the balance shaft is located on the block. If you need any help just email back so that I can send you pdf version of the manual as fixya site doesn't allow us to do that.

Chevy cavalier 1998 2.2l Engines shake and when change to speed, it goes off


Carlos it sounds to me like your running with a dead cylinder. I want you to test for spark on all four of your plugs one at a time. You can buy a spark tester at most auto parts stores or just use a small diameter but long screw driver. With the engine off key off pull a plug wire off and insert the plug end of tester into the wire boot or stick the end of the screw driver in and attach the clip on tester to engine block or hold the shaft of the screw driver an 8th of an inch from the block an have a helper crank the motor ( be sure to keep all lose clothing and items away from moving parts) if you see spark jump the gap it's good. You can also remove the spark plug stick it back in the wire boot and holding the boot hold the threaded end of plug against the block. And watch the electrode for blue spark. I'm thinking you have a bad coil.

How do u change the timing belt on a 1990 4 cylinder honda accord?


Disconnect the wire harness at the distributor.Remove the spark plug closest to the drivers side front tire. Place the palm of your hand over the valve covers empty spark plug hole and have a helper crank the motor over until air pressure pushes past your the palm of your hand. Next, look at the cam shaft wheel and note the direction that the arrow is pointing, the arrow should be pointing straight up IN RELATION TO THE ENGINE not the earth. If it is not, you will need to manually rotate the engine till the cam wheel is infact pointing straight up. Next, Jack up the front of the car and support it with jack stand and remove the front drivers side tire.Next, support the weight of the engine with a floor jack remove the motor mount closest to the drivers side tire To remove it you will need a deep 17mm socket on a heavy duty breaker bar. Next, loosen and remove the power steering belt and alternator belts. To loosen and remove the belts you will need a 10mm wrench and a 12mm wrench. And also a 14mm or 15mm wrench. Next, use a 19mm socket AND an air powered IMPACT wrench to remove the bolt holding on the crank shaft pulley. Next, remove the crankshaft pulley. Next, use a 10mm wrench and/or 10mm socket and remove the bolts holding the plastic engine side cover. Next, loosen the 14mm or 15mm bolt which secures the 2 belt tension wheels. Next, LOOSEN the 10mm bolt that is on the balance shaft tensioner. The balance shaft is the cogged wheel with a small timing mark dot on the side of the wheel. Next, loosen the 10mm bolt on the timing belt tensioner. It's obvious what wheel is the timing belt tensioner. Next, remove the 12mm bolt on the back side of the block (near the balance shaft) a little bit of oil will drip out, this 12mm bolt will allow a long bolt to be inserted into a recessed channel of the balance shaft. This recessed channel is needed to lock the balance shaft in place. A bolt from the air conditioner works great for locking the balance shaft in place. You're basically just pushing the bolt in a hole to keep the balance shaft from spinning.890a27a.jpg Next, remove both the balance shaft belt and timing belt. Then reverse the procedure to complete the new belt installation. EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!! PLEASE NOTE, the oil pump wheel furthest to the left (closest to the radiator), has a timing mark on the flat face side of the wheel, that timing mark has to be pointing directly to the 9:o'clock position in relation to the engine. The cam wheel has an arrow on the side of one of the "spokes" ...make sure it is pointing straight up in relation to the engine...straight away from the crank shaft. Put the crank wheel on with the arrow pointing straight up to the center of the cam wheel.

Changed timing belt - won't start could i be 180


an easy way of checking if your timing is right, is to take off your rocker cover and turn the cam shaft until the cam lobes on no.1 cylinder are pointing straight up this means that the valves for no.1 are completely closed,now remove no. 1 spark plug put a long screw driver into the plug hole resting on the crown of the piston, now rotate the crank shaft and watch the screw driver rise to its highest point before its start to drop again, this called top dead centre ,now check your timing marks to see if they are alright or just refit belt using this method and u will be a 100%

Engine rotates but will not start


You will need someone to help you do this test: Pull ONE spark plug lead from the easiest spark plug to get to. With a screw driver insert the screw driver's shaft up into the sp lead boot. Hold the exposed metalic part of the screwdriver's shaft close to a chasis ground. ( don't be holding on in anyway to exposed metal shaft. Hold it by its insulating handle. Have someone turn the engine over for a few revolutions if you don't get a spark juping to ground then replace the plug lead.
Open the oil filler cap and look down with a flash light and turn the engine. You should see the valves or rockers moving. If you don't ether get tha spark from the first test nor themovement from the second test, your timing belt has failed. Not a fun job to change.

Hi, I need to replace the timing belt on my


The crankshaft pulley has a hole in it, just above the key. It should be straight up and lined up with the mark on the engine.
The cam pulley also has a hole, and it should be lined up with the little v in your camshaft cover. Put the belt on, line it up, and turn the engine over with a wrench or socket, 2 complete revolutions. Everything should be exactly the same place as when you lined it up. If not, you are out one cog, and will have to do it again.
Make sure the cam is on compression stroke when you line it up. Both valves on #1 cylinder should be fully up... in the closed position.

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.

Where to find timing tools for '87 alfa spider 2.0


You can do it the old fashioned way. The timing belt has to be off to do this. The top belt gear has a hash mark by the nut holding it in. It has to be top center. Then you have to take the first spark plug out and stick a long screw driver inside there. You will need two people to do the next step. You then, Turn the bottom gear clockwise until you can feel the first head come all the way up. The second person holding the screw driver will know when its all the way up. Then you stop. You then put the Timing belt back on. You cannot move the gears at all when you put the belt back on.
