Certain cars DO use timing BELTS. You cannot determine the condition of the belt by looking at it. If you do know what brands the original equipment is (on belt, idler, tensioner pulleys) and the ones you have in your car are different than stock brand, it has been changed. Though you still don't know when.

How to know if timing belt on volvo t6 needs to be replaced if dealer stamps and bills don't show it. The 105 page was stamped.


The timing belt should have been replaced at the 105K service. Someone should look at the timing belt to determine the condition. However, if you have any doubts, you should replace it to be on the safe side. Also replace the mechanical tensioner.

Unknown millage on timing belt 152000


The interval for replacement is 60,000 miles on that model.
If you do not know the last time it was changed, it would be a good idea to do it so you do not risk getting stranded.

The engine is NOT an interference engine, so the engine will not be damaged if the belt breaks; you will just need a tow truck to get it somewhere to install a new belt.

You will need to replace the timing belt and the balance shaft belt (if applicable). Your car may not have a balance shaft belt. Mitsubishi did away with that belt, but I can't remember what year it started. At 60,000 miles. And again at every 60,000 miles. You should also replace the accy drive belts at that time. If you don't replace the timing belt and it breaks, severe engine damage WILL happen. Hope this helps. Good luck.

1994 ford escort wont stay in time


Is it getting the correct tension on the belt. Is the belt tension spring broke. Make sure you have the right belt. On the 1.9 engine they changed it in 1992 from a square tooth belt to a round tooth belt or the other way around. I'm not sure. Just make sure the teeth on the gears is the same as the belt. I know you said it was a 1994 but do you know if a previous owned changed the motor?

Replace the timing belt tensioner on a 1990 Nissan Sentra


The belt tensioner is located under the timing cover. It is 1 1/2 round and about 3/4 inch with a groove in the middle where a bolt is tightened. When you remove the timing cover you will see the timing belt, the camshaft sprocket and the crankshaft gear. The timing belt goes around these components.. The belt tensioner is loosened and the new timing belt is placed. The sproket also has to be replaced if it is broken. Be careful to notice the little marks that are aligned on the sproket and above the camshaft.. They can be small arrows that have to be aligned exactly the way you took them off. replace the belt and you tighten the tensioner so the belt fits snug and tighten the bolt in the middle of the belt tensioner. It is not too difficult, if you know something about mechanics. If you don't, you will be better of taking it to somebody who does know.
