How can I check to see if the timing belt is bad on a 2004 Toyota Sequoia? I drove it at lunch time and when I went to leave work it wouldn't start. Checked the battery and charged it, tried to

agree that starter is bad. to know if timing belt is starting to get bad is just look at the belt. if it is getting bad, there will be small cracks on the inside of the belt.

I have a 99 chrysler 300m that does not start, it sounds like it's out of gas but there is gas in there.. The diagnostic says the cam & the crankshaft sensors are bad but they have been replaced 2...

I am not saying that this is your problem for sure, but have you had your water pump and timing belt replaced lately?? I had the same car and it would crank and crank but would not start. I replaced both my cam and crank sensors also. Eventually I tore into it and found out that my timing belt had broke.

What happened to mine is the water pump (inside the timing cover powered by the timing belt) leaked and the coolant messed up my timing belt and the timing belt finally snapped.

I replaced water pump and timing belt and luckly the car did not have any bent valves. Just to help out I would not try and crank the car anymore until you know for sure that your timing belt is intact. If it is bad and you go in to replace it I would do the water pump while you are in there. It will save you trouble and is a really easy job.

Good luck and I hope the best for you!!

How do you know when a belt itensioner is bad

The drive belt tensioner or the timing belt tensioner both have an internal bearing. When that bearing starts to go bad it will get noisy and the noise will get louder and louder as time goes on, until you replace it. Good luck :O)

Timing belt keeps jumping tim 3 times know reset runs good for awhile

You have a bad timing belt tensioner. Stop driving it because you are probably due for a new timing belt also if the tensioner is bad. If the timing belt breaks while you are driving it, serious damage may occur like a valve punching through a piston, bent valve, damaged cam, serious stuff can happen if the timing belt breaks.

I am unable to replace my timing belt on my 2001 PT Cruiser I have 120,000 miles on my car.....Can it make it to 122,000??? I am trying to get the money together as we speak........Do you know???

some people dont bother to change the belt at all(NOT RECCOMMENDED) so, as long as you dont redline it in every gear,it could go on for a lot longer(i hope...)

I turned to go into the Bank and my escort stalled and I tried to start it but it just turns over, had the fuel pump tested it's not that, help I need my car and know one really know's whats wrong.

Have you had your timing belt replaced, open oil cap and look in there while some one cranks engine, if you don't see ant thing turning bad timing belt, also check for spark at spark plug wire, could be a bad crankshaft sensor.

When should timing belt be changed on hyundai accent, also what are indications that it is going bad

Hyundai recommends changing the timing belt every 60K miles. As far as symptoms go, a timing belt won't give a lot of warming prior to breaking but a few would be extremely rough idling and misfiring. You should know that a broken timing belt often will do damage to the engine. I hope you find this answers your question. All the best!

Do timing belts in 1994 Ford Escorts ever need replacing?

No they are not. The reason your manual does not saying anything about replacing the timing belt is because 9 times out of 10 most people do not know how to replace the timing belt and make sure that it is on properly and the timing is correct. Also the time belt should be changed around 115,000 miles. But it is never bad to go ahead and get it done if they already did it or are going to

Timing Belt

the bad news is that you have what is called an "interferance" engine, that means, when the timing belt breaks or slips the pistons go crashing into the valves, you are going to have to pull the head and check for damage before putting a new belt on it, as for the timing itself, there should be small marks on the pulleys and block to align the timing.
