We cannot stress this enough: Be careful! Make sure you know where the timing marks are on your engine, and that you have them set up properly with No. 1 cylinder at top dead center (TDC) on the compression stroke before attempting to replace the timing belt.

Why? 1) That interference engine thing again; and 2) Every camshaft and crankshaft on planet Earth is indexed to No. 1 TDC. If you try to remove and replace the timing belt with the engine in any other position, chances are good you'll throw things out of time. Then you'll get confused and have to pull off the valve cover as you try to determine when No. 1's valves are closed (which begins the compression stroke) in order to re-index the engine. Get your marks lined up right the first time.

    Of course, there are professional engine-support rigs available for purchase or rent. But as you can see in our photos, some lumber and an adjustable tiedown strap work just fine to support the powertrain while you remove that cumbersome motor mount. Once it's out of the way, though, you're almost home. Just remove the rest of the timing belt cover sections and turn your attention to the tensioner pulley mechanism



    This tensioner may be an automatic hydraulic type that you simply crank in one direction to remove the old timing belt. Or, you may have to loosen the tensioner pulley adjustment bolt to release the tension and the belt. Before proceeding, confirm which way the engine rotates during normal operation. (Pull the fuel pump relay or fuse first if you need to disconnect fuel lines the way we did. Don't ask how we found this out. We're still getting the gasoline smell out of our coveralls.) Knowing which way the engine turns is important for checking the new belt's alignment later; you don't want to be off by a tooth on one of the sprockets. The easiest way is to have a helper bump over the starter motor with the ignition key while you watch the engine. Of course, now you'll have to reset your timing marks by hand. Don't rotate the engine backward to the marks. Crank it around forward to maintain the correct tension and to keep the belt from jumping teeth.

    TDC? Now you can carefully slide the old timing belt off its sprockets and pulleys, while trying to keep the camshaft and crankshaft from spinning. With all the timing marks lined up, route the new belt around the largest diameters first, leaving the smallest pulley or sprocket for last. It's tricky to slip the new, stiffer belt over that last one, but you'll get it after a couple of different wiggling, jiggling attempts. Now, make sure the timing marks are still lined up.

    Warning: If you know you're working on an interference engine, do not rotate the camshaft or the crankshaft independently while the timing belt is off the engine. You could cause the pistons to hit the valves, or vice versa, and cause the same damage as if the timing belt had snapped with the engine running — bent valves!

    If you're working with a manual tensioner pulley setup, now is when you perform the factory procedure to tighten the new belt. A hydraulic tensioner takes care of this for you. Once the tension's set, place a socket on the big nut holding the front pulley on and use it to turn the engine over — two complete crankshaft revolutions in the direction of normal rotation. Line up all the timing marks again. Everything still on the money? Then you've finished replacing the timing belt — but you have another hour's work to reinstall the cam belt covers, any shrouding, and all the wires, engine accessories and hoses you moved or removed.

Where is the water pump


If you have the 5sfe 2.2 L engine, the water pump is in-line with the camshaft timing belt and is under a two piece plastic cover behind your alternator/powersteering/crankshaft pulley belts. Rule of thumb is to always change timing belt with the water pump. It's so much work to get to it, you might as well do both at the same time. You'll avoid having to go through all that twice if the belt slips or breaks later. Need advice on what to do exactly step by step? ask me directly. I'll tell you if I know.

Timing belt instalation 92 sunbird


Click on the following free direct LinkS. These are for your 1992 Pontiac Sunbird. They have both: the 2.0L 4-Cylinder and 3.1L V6 Engine Diagrams with the various engine options (AC/No AC etc.)
This First Link has the Belt Diagram/Front Engine Diagrams you will need to remove in order to gain access to the Timing Belt Cover, which also has to be removed so you can remove the Timing Belt.
http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/1992/make/pontiac/model/sunbird/1992_pontiac_sunbird_drive_belt_routing_diagram.htm
This Second Link are the Timing Belt Diagrams, complete with Instructional Diagrams.
http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/1992/make/pontiac/model/sunbird/1992_pontiac_sunbird_timing_belt_diagram_marks.htm

As far as a Step-by-Step procedure: It would literally take dozens of Pages using this type of forum. I strongly suggest for your sake: to purchase a Haynes or Chilton Manual, available at most auto parts stores for around $20-$25. These have every step-by-step procedure you will need; including the Torques Specifications for each and every Bolt and/or Nut you are removing or loosening.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

1992 lexus ls 400 timing belt


I have the same problem with my 94 LS, its getting fixed now. The camshaft sensor is telling the computer that the timing is off, meaning your timing belt is either jumping or missing teeth, or it may be going bad. It is a very big job, so I suggest replacing the belt, water pump, tensioner, and maybe the seals and pulleys as well. Are you at a lost of power, has you car ever cut off at a stop red light or when driving?

1992 Honda Prelude Timing Belt Diagram


There's no such thing as a timing belt diagram.

Do you mean to say the "Procedure" for changing a timing belt in a 92 Prelude?

By asking such a question I can only interpret it as a clear indication that you've never changed a timing belt before.

If this is true, then you don't want to start out or practice on your own car.

Get the car to a pro and have the job done right.

If not true (and you've changed timing belt's in the past)

Then give me the engine size and I'll post the:

"PROCEDURE" for changing the belt in a few hours.
