Question about 2002 Honda Civic
Hi, just to be sure, i would suggest you check your timing belt before you purchase this repair. i have prepared a step by step guide that will help you check this vital part. I have also include removal and installation instructions as well.
Check Your Timing Belt Step1 Check your owner's manual for the recommended mileage for replacing your timing belt. Replacement for a Honda Civic is 60,000 miles for 1980 to 1989 models; 90,000 for 1990 to 1996 models and 105,000 for 1997 to 2002 models. Step2 Locate the timing belt and examine it for breaks, damage, fraying, worn spots or looseness. Step3 Inspect the belt for cracked or missing teeth that may be the result of foreign material collecting between them. Step4 Determine if the timing belt damage is on both sides. Single-side damage may be caused by the timing belt's guide. Remove Your Timing Belt Step1 Disengage the negative battery cable. Step2 Rotate the crankshaft to line up the timing belt matchmarks. Position cylinder No. 1 at "Top Dead Center" (TDC) on the compression stroke. Step3 Access the cylinder head and timing belt covers by moving any components obstructing contact then take off both covers. Step4 Secure the timing belt's adjuster with a bolt from the lower timing belt cover placed on the adjuster's arm. Step5 Relax the nut for the timing belt and balancer shafts tensioner adjuster. Release the tension by pushing the balance belt tensioner away from the timing belt. Step6 Take out the balancer belt. Slip it from the pulleys without creasing or bending it. Avoid oil or coolant contact. Disconnect the crankshaft's balancer belt drive. Step7 Undo the timing belt adjuster's lockbolt and relax the nut. Release the timing belt tension by pushing on the adjuster. Secure the nut. Step8 Unfasten the timing belt as in the previous step. Replace the belt tensioners, if defective. Install Your Timing Belt Step1 Put in the timing belt tensioner lockbolt, the balancer belt pulley, adjuster lever and the adjusting nut and bolt and the tensioner springs. Step2 Secure the tensioner and balancer at their full deflection. Step3 Line up the crankshaft timing pointer with the flywheel and the camshaft pulley so the word "UP" is at the top and the edge marks line up with the head's surfaces. Step4 Place the timing belt over the pulleys and tensioners. Rotate the crankshaft to the left until the cam pulley has traveled three teeth. Line up the timing belt marks and hook up the balancer belt drive sprocket to the crankshaft. Next line up the front and rear balancer pulleys with the oil pump's body. Step5 Mount the balancer belt. Check that all engine alignment marks are accurate. Rotate the crankshaft one complete turn and secure. Release the bolt locking the tensioner. Step6 Insert the bottom timing belt cover. Be sure the rubber seals are in position. Place a new seal surrounding the adjusting nut. Put the key on the crankshaft and install the pulley. Lubricate the bolt threads and secure at 181 foot pounds (250 Nm). Insert the top cover and secure the bolt to 40 foot pounds (55 Nm). Step7 Reconnect the negative battery cable and any other items that you had to disconnect. Start the engine and look for leaks.
