If the blots threads are gone then probably the threads in the hole it goes into are gone also. You need to get a thread tap to run into the hole to create new threads and then get a replacement bolt to install into the newly tapped threads. Good luck. You can buy a good tap and die set that will have the thread tappers you will need to so this.

Water pump on a 2002 chrysler sebring and now am ready to put the timing belt on , when i took the old belt off both the cam gears turned slightly towards each other , please help , thank you


first up --is the timing belt going back in the same direction you took it off
if you don't know then get a new belt as an old belt running in the wrong direction to which it was running will fail very quickly and if that happens there is valve bending problems
next the timing marks face each other exactly( 9 and 3 oclock)

1995 2.3L 4W ISUZU RODEO HOW DO YOU GET IT BACK IN TIME


Remove timing belt cover and the timing belt. Line up the cam gear timing mark with the mark that is behind it. Then, set the crankshaft pulley timing mark to zero degrees or whatever the book says. Then re-install the timing belt and re-torque the timing belt tensioner to the proper torque. Turn the engine one full turn, with a breaker bar and socket. Re-check the timing marks on the crankshaft and camshaft. Re-install the timing belt cover and everything else you took off to get to the belt. Be sure to torque the crankshaft pulley bolt to specs.

Volvo s80 t6 after putting my serpintine belt back on when i started the car a good size of the belt ripped of and wrapped around my harmonic balncer to the timming belt and shut my car right down


Did the piece of serpentine belt actually make contact with the timing belt ? The timing belt should have been behind the timing cover.
And does the engine crank normally ? Normal compression ?

3. After loosening it you can remove the old belt and place new belt.
4. Tighten the belt tensioner and put timing belt cover back.
Done.

How do I install the timing belt on my 89 mercury cougar?


1 Take the old belt off the sprockets once you have disconnected the battery cables and removed the drive belt.

2 Inspect the timing belt before you install it. Make sure the teeth are not cracked or torn off, look for thin spots and make sure the timing marks are readable.

3 Find the bolts that hold the timing belt tensioner in place. Loosen the bolts to allow the belt to connect to the sprockets.

4 Make sure you adjust the tension of the timing belt properly. You can find the exact amount of tension in the owner's manual.

5 Adjust the timing belt so that the timing marks line up with the cam and the crank. It is important to align all sprockets with the timing belt teeth. When complete you want a TDC setting of 1.

6 Use an open-end wrench to turn the engine over twice-make sure you rotate back to the zero degree mark.

7 Ease the timing covers back in place and tighten the bolts. Remember to reattach the battery cables before you try to start the engine.

How to put the timing belt back into my car a 1994 Murcury Tracer. The timing belt had came off the car and I had to go new timing belt to put back into the car and I have no idea how to put a timing belt...


if you have no idea then this is not something you are going to wanna attempt. It is a very delicate proccess. And if you get it wrong you will ruin your engine. By ruin i mean blow it up. The engine has to be exactly in time or it will ruin your valves

I've replace the head on my 94 eagle talon with a 2.0L engine and i'm having trouble getting the timing belt back on. Is there an easy way to put the timing belt back on


Did you compress the timing belt tensioner?

There should be a small hole in the upper part of the timing belt tensioner housing and also on the end of the timing belt tensioner plunger, and the plunger must be compressed back into the tensioner housing until you can place a small allen wrench or something similar through the holes in the tensioner housing and the plunger to hold the plunger down and from putting tension on the timing belt until the timing belt has been installed.

Once you are sure that the timing belt is installed properly then you can pull out what you have holding the tensioner plunger and allow the timing belt to be tensioned.

If you are unsure of the procedure to compress the tensioner, or of the condition of the timing belt tensioner, then just replace the tensioner, it will come already compressed with a pin through it holding the plunger, and do not remove the holding pin until the timing belt is properly installed with all of the timing marks in their correct places.

Timing belt


first of all did you do the belt as maintenance or did the belt brake and you replaced it? if the belt broke chances are yo have bent valves for the engine to run rough.

Timing Belt


It is semi difficult. The timing belt on the v 6 dohc is one of the longest timing belts you will ever see, It winds around one double set of cam pulleys, down around the crankshaft pulley through a belt tensioner, back up around the other set of double camshaft pulleys, then back down around the water pump pulley and finally back up to the camshaft pulleys where you started. It is of utmost importantce that all the timing marks are lined up properly and that the belt tensioner is properly set when you have the new belt on. If you have a lot of patience and some previous engine work under your belt it should be within your ability. You will be taking off all the timing covers on the front of the motor , the front drive pully off the crankshaft, all the accesory belts off, undue the alternator and shift it out of the way , the front motor mount comes off, the power steering belt tensioner has to come off, It is best to jack the car up on stands with support under the oil pan because of the released motor mount. take off the driver side wheel and wheelwell undercovers for access. Take pictures, label all wiring you disconnect, it is a good idea to replace the timing belt tensioner with the belt and maybe the water pump also to avoid going through this pain soon. Get a Chilton or Haynes manual for reference. In other words it is a *****!!!!! But If you tackle the job, get it back together and the car runs , you will be proud,
