Question about 1993 Eagle Talon

1 Answer

Timing belt stipped

I am concerned on the condition of the camshaft, if it it is damaged.

Timing belt 'A' was stripped from a 1.8L engine, 1993 Eagle Talon DL.

The overhead camshaft sprocket cannot be manually rotated, the timing belt 'A' has been removed, timing belt 'B' is undamaged.

The temperture for three days was below freezing, an average of about 20 degrees. The engine was started and ran for about 3 minutes at this temperture and then died, Timing belt 'A' was stipped, antifreeze was at a ratio of about 20% vrs water. I would like to know how to determine the condition of camshaft and any other parts that may be of concern, prior to installing a new timing belt.

About the easiest way, is to put all belts back on properly, and turn engine over before complete re-assembly and check for compression.
I'm not able at this time to confirm that the 1.8L is, or isn't an interference engine, but regardless, you need to do this to see if any damage occurred anyway. Double check your oil pump sprocket & silent shaft timing. It can be 180 degrees out & still run, but engine may have a vibration when running.

My 2002 Hyundai Sonata sgx won't start. Someone said it could be the timimgbelt and someone else said a fly wheel. It made it to the corner oneday then just died. Has gas in it...and anew battery..

If the flywheel failed you'd surely know it. There'd be pieces of car all over the road. As far as the timing belt is concerned, that's is a distinct possibility. If the car has more than 70K miles on it and the timing belt has never been changed, then in the case of a sudden no-start condition, the timing belt is always a real possibility.
There are a couple ways to check for a broken belt, but before I tell you them I must tell you this. The engine in your car is referred to as an INTERFERENCE engine. This means that if the timing belt breaks while the engine is running, the camshaft and crankshaft will be out of synchronization and the valves in the head will hit the pistons in the block and bend or break. Now, to check for a broken belt, the easiest way is just to crank the engine. If it seems to crank over much faster than it normally does, then there is a good change the belt is broken. If you cannot tell for sure, you may be able to see if the cams are turning by removing the oil filler cap and looking down into the valve cover. If you can see the camshaft when looking into the valve cover, crank the engine and see if the camshaft is turning. If not, you got a broken belt and a trashed motor. It will require, at a minimum, the head to be repaired and resurfaced, new head gasket and timing belt and tensioner. If you have the 2.7L engine, you should replace the water pump at this time as it is driven by the timing belt. There may be additional damage done to pistons depending on how fast the engine was turning when the belt broke.

How install camshaft?


There isn't enough information to give you a good answer.

Installing a camshaft requires that you follow the valve-timing procedure, that you properly install the camshaft seal, and that you install the bolts in the proper sequence and set to the proper torque, usually in steps as described in the service manual. You would be best to use a service manual for the details. You can get an aftermarket service manual for your car at virtually any auto parts store or off the internet.

As far as the stripped or damages "screw", it really depends on what you mean here. If it is one of the screws that holds the camshaft cover in place, it is probable not a big deal. If it is one of the camshaft bearing journal bolts - it is a big deal. In that case, it will depend on how it is damaged and how badly. If the threads are slightly damaged, running a tap (probably a bottoming tap) down the threads may be all you need. If the threads are stipped out, you may need to insert a heli-coil which might even require removing the head.

I hope it is something simple and inexpensive.

Setting the Camshaft (valve) timing is not terribly difficult, but it is very important that it be done correctly. If you do it wrong, you can destroy the engine next time you turn it over with the starter if the valves and pistons collide. I don't know whether you have an "interference" engine or not - you didn't say which engine you have, but almost all Honda engines are "interference" engines [meaning there is not room for the pistons to clear the valves if the valves are open at the wrong time] If you have never changed a timing belt or set the camshaft timing before on anything, get someone who has to help you or leave it to a professional mechanic.

PS- Never change the timing belt without changing the water pump as well, and replacing the timing belt tensioner. These are easy to change when the timing belt is removed and it is a lot of work to change the timing belt. If the timing belt tensioner fails it is just as catastophic as a timing belt failure on an interference engine.

Does my 2005 mazda mpv have a timimg belt or chain?


Mazda MPV 1999-06
Timing Belt


General Information

Interference Engines
Engines, chain- or belt-driven, can be classified as either free-running or interference, depending on what would happen if the piston-to-valve timing is disrupted. A free-running engine is designed with enough clearance between the pistons and valves to allow the crankshaft to rotate (pistons still moving) while the camshaft stays in one position (several valves fully open). If this condition occurs normally, no internal engine damage will result. In an interference engine, there is not enough clearance between the pistons and valves to allow the crankshaft to turn without the camshaft being in time.
An interference engine can suffer extensive internal damage if a timing belt fails. The piston design does not allow clearance for the valve to be fully open and the piston to be at the top of its stroke. If the belt fails, the piston will collide with the valve and will bend or break the valve, damage the piston, and/or bend a connecting rod. When this type of failure occurs, the engine will need to be replaced or disassembled for further internal inspection; either choice costing many times that of replacing the timing belt.


NOTE For manufacturer-s recommended service interval, refer to the maintenance interval chart located in this manual.
The average replacement interval for a timing belt is approximately 60,000 miles (96,000 km). If, however, the timing belt is inspected earlier or more frequently than suggested, and shows signs of wear or defects, the belt should be replaced at that time.

WARNING Never allow antifreeze, oil or solvents to come into with a timing belt. If this occurs immediately wash the solution from the timing belt. Also, never excessive bend or twist the timing belt; this can damage the belt so that its lifetime is severely shortened.

Fig. Never bend or twist a timing belt excessively, and do not allow solvents, antifreeze, gasoline, acid or oil to come into contact with the belt
Inspect both sides of the timing belt. Replace the belt with a new one if any of the following conditions exist:

Hardening of the rubber-back side is glossy without resilience and leaves no indentation when pressed with a fingernail Cracks on the rubber backing Cracks or peeling of the canvas backing Cracks on rib root Cracks on belt sides Missing teeth or chunks of teeth Abnormal wear of belt sides-the sides are normal if they are sharp, as if cut by a knife.

Fig. Worn teeth from excessive belt tension, camshaft or distributor not turning properly, or fluid leaking on the belt

If none of these conditions exist, the belt does not need replacement unless it is at the recommended interval. The belt MUST be replaced at the recommended interval.

WARNING On interference engines, it is very important to replace the timing belt at the recommended intervals, otherwise expensive engine damage will likely result if the belt fails.

My autoScanner is showing a code of P0014, protenting to timing and cam poistion. I have a 2002 Trailblazer.

DTC P0014
Circuit Description
The cam phasing system is a hydraulically actuated phase shifting mechanism. The powertrain control module (PCM) supplies the ignition positive driver and ground circuits. A pulse width modulated (PWM) driver controls the amount that the camshaft actuator solenoid assembly advances or retards the exhaust camshaft. The exhaust camshaft is commanded to a maximum ****** position of 25 degrees. When the exhaust camshaft is retarded at the maximum rate, the duty cycle of the signal is at 100 percent. The maximum advance rate has a 0 percent duty cycle. Other than when the camshaft is at full advance, a 50 percent duty cycle is used to maintain a steady ****** angle.

If the desired and actual cam phase angle error exceeds its tolerance value for a certain amount of time, then DTC P0014 will set.
On rare occasions, a rough idle may be encountered with a P0014 and/or P0017 DTC. Due to the rough idle, a P0106 DTC may be stored too. This concern may be due to debris in the camshaft actuator system, which may be caused by a missing camshaft actuator solenoid screen or a worn crankshaft thrust bearing. Typically, this is the result of a camshaft actuator solenoid concern. If this is due to a worn crankshaft thrust bearing, some customers may also comment on a drive belt noise.

If this concern is encountered, follow the SI diagnostics and repair as necessary. If the SI diagnostics do not isolate the cause of this concern, ensure that camshaft actuator solenoid screens 1, 2, and 3 are in place.

(1) Screen for Advance Pressure to Camshaft Actuator
(2) Screen for Pressurized Oil from Oil Pump
(3) Screen for ****** Pressure to Camshaft Actuator

If any of these screens are missing, replace the camshaft actuator solenoid, change the engine oil and filter, and evaluate the concern.

If all these screens are present, measure the crankshaft end play to determine if it is within the specification of 0.0044" - 0.0153" (0.112 - 0.388 mm). Typically, if excessive crankshaft end play is causing this concern, it will be obviously out of specification by .050" or more. If crankshaft end play is within specification, replace the camshaft actuator solenoid.

If the crankshaft end play is obviously out of specification, inspect the engine block for damage due to contact with the crankshaft.

If there is no engine block damage present, disassemble the engine and inspect the following components for damage due to thrust bearing debris in the engine oil: all bearings, all journals, all valvetrain components, all timing components, and the crankshaft

Ensure idler pulley is clean and rotates smoothly. 2.Install No. 1 idler pulley and tension spring (if removed). Pry No. 1 idler pulley away from timing belt area as far as possible. Temporarily tighten No. 1 idler pulley bolt. Ensure idler pulley is clean and rotates smoothly. 3.Using crankshaft pulley bolt, rotate crankshaft so timing mark on crankshaft sprocket aligns with timing mark on oil pump housing. See. This will position keyway in crankshaft sprocket at 12 o'clock position.

CAUTION:If reusing timing belt, ensure reference marks on timing belt align with reference marks placed on crankshaft and camshaft sprockets. Ensure timing belt is installed in original direction of rotation.
4.Ensure all sprockets and idler pulleys are clean. Install timing belt on crankshaft sprocket, oil pump sprocket, No. 1 idler pulley, and then No. 2 idler pulley in sequence. 5.Install timing belt guide with cupped side away from crankshaft sprocket and flat side toward timing belt. Install No. 1 timing belt cover and new gasket. 6.Align crankshaft pulley key groove with key in crankshaft. Install crankshaft pulley. Install and tighten crankshaft pulley bolt to specification. 7.Rotate crankshaft clockwise so cylinder No. 1 is at TDC on compression stroke. Ensure timing mark on crankshaft pulley aligns with "0" mark on No. 1 timing belt cover. If reusing timing belt, ensure reference mark on timing belt aligns with upper edge of No. 1 timing belt cover. 8.Rotate camshaft, and align hole in camshaft sprocket with alignment mark on camshaft bearing cap. See Fig. 2 . Install timing belt on camshaft sprocket. If reusing timing belt, ensure reference mark on timing belt aligns with the reference mark on camshaft sprocket. Ensure tension exists on timing belt between the crankshaft and camshaft sprockets.
CAUTION:DO NOT rotate crankshaft counterclockwise, as viewed from timing belt end of engine.
9.Loosen No. 1 idler pulley bolt 1/2 turn. Rotate crankshaft pulley 2 full revolutions clockwise from TDC to TDC. 10.Ensure timing mark on crankshaft pulley aligns with "0" mark on No. 1 timing belt cover, and hole in camshaft sprocket aligns with alignment mark on camshaft bearing cap. See Fig. 2 . If timing marks are not aligned, remove timing belt and reinstall. 11.Rotate crankshaft clockwise 1 and 7/8 revolutions and align crankshaft pulley "0" mark with 45-degree Before Top Dead Center (BTDC) mark on No. 1 timing belt cover. See Fig. 5 . 12.Tighten No. 1 idler pulley bolt to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS . Install No. 2 timing belt cover and gaskets. Install and tighten spark plugs to specification. 13.To install remaining components, reverse removal procedure.

Cam timing

Firstly with this engine being identified as an interference engine, I will not accept any responsibility if your engine gets damaged. You are free to take or leave this advice and the responsibility will be entirely yours.

Engine codes: D2H, D6A, D6B, D6D, DDZ, DKZ, DFZ.
Covering years 1989 to 1997.

  • Turn the crankshaft in a clockwise direction to about 10.00 o'clock on the mark on the camshaft sprocket. Good tip here, apply tippex to the sprocket mark.
  • Now slowly continue to turn the crankshaft and with the timing pin feel for the locating hole behind the camshaft sprocket.
  • You will find the camshaft location hole at about 8.00 o'clock.
  • When you have located the the locating hole behind the camshaft sprocket, insert the timing pin.
  • Now insert the timing pin in the crankshaft pulley.
  • You will find the crankshaft pulley location hole behind the sprocket at about 10.30 o'clock.
  • When both timing pins are in their locating holes, the top and bottom of the engine is in-line.
  • This information is only to set the engine up and not to change the timing belt.
  • I would advise that on these engines you change the timing belts at 60,000 miles or every 3 years which ever comes first. If for any reason the timing belt gets contaminated, change the timing belt.
Take care.
