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.

04 mitsubishi galant won't start..started off


Sounds like your Timing Chain or Belt Are Damaged and Caused your Ignition Timing to Jump out of Time, Also check your Distributor Cap and rotor NOTE: if you have a Distributor ,Some are Distributorless. Pull your Spark Plugs out BEFORE you Do Locate #1 Plug its in Front of your Engine.And Trace the Wire to the Distributor Cap. If you have a 4 Cylinder #1 is in the First Plug in front of vehicle, if its a V-6 #1 Plug is on Left side first plug in Front. Depending on which engine you have will determine if your wires go into the Distributor cap Clockwise or Counter Clockwise. So BEST to Simply Mark them to get them back in same order.You'll need to Get the Enging to crank over and have a Buddy Put a Compression Gauge in #1 Cylinder and Bring it up to TDC (Top Dead Center) thats when the piston is up and gets the Gauge to Move up then your on the Compression Stroke, Then check distributor rotor to see if its pointed to where your #1 Spark Plug wire came off or at least close to it.Just hit the Ignition Switch off and on Until you have it showing compression on Gauge. JUST ON and OFF that Fast. If the Rotor is pointing To a different Spark Plug Wire in the Cap, Sounds like timing Jumped. Hope this will help you solve your problem or at least find it. If you don't have or not sure on How to do this i recommend you have a Qualified Mechanic Shop run the Tests. Thanks and Good Luck

I have a 1997 Mitsubishi Galant with rough idle and no power when accelerating. Replaced spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor, spark plug wires, MAF, both oxygen sensors, air filter and the engine still...


I am having the same issue on Mitsubishi Galant 02. Clattering on acceleration, herky jerky idle. Pulled a code multiple cylinder misfire. My mechanic's diagnosis is bad valve cover gasket causing oil to seap into the spark plugs and bad timing belt, which I have not replaced at 150k miles. I do however know my fuel injectors do need cleaning, he hasn't ruled that out either. Have you pulled any code on it? I have read on engine knock sensor going out on some of these also. Hope this helps some.

My Mitsubishi Galant ES 2005 has completed 95000 kms. What necessary service and maintenance are required now...??


Timing belt for sure if old. I'd change all belts. An engine flush and radiator flush would be a good idea. If you've never had a tune up you might do so. Change plugs and wires yourself. A transmission service if you haven't had one in recent years.

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.
