Check the belt tensioner-it may need replaced if it keeps the belt too loose.

I have a mitsubishi space wagon (not galant but the space wagon didnt come up as an option)1997cc, 1993 automatic petrol. It has had a new radiator, new thermostat and new head gasket fitted but is still...


It sounds like the water pump belt under the timing belt is broken or the pump is not circulating the anti freeze the way it is supposed to.Did you replace the water pump, water pump belt, and timing belt when you replaced the head gasket? If a vehicle is over 100,000 miles it is recommended to replace the water pump while doing the timing belt just because the pump is such a pain to get to under the timing belt.

1994 accura integra how do you replace water pump without replacing timing belt


Hi:
Sorry, but the timing belt must come off to remove the water pump, because that is what spins the water pump.

Common sense says to replace the timing belt and tensioner when the water pump gets changed, and change the waterpump when you change the timing belt...

How to replace timing belt


Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

To replace a timing belt is a big job and should be done by someone who is familiar with that type of work. The entire front of the engine has to come apart so you can get the front timing belt cover off. Once you have the top and lower from timing belt cover off, the belt is now exposed to be replaced. Before removing the belt, make you sure you line up the cams and crank so your at TDC and the marks all line up. Then remove the belt and then you can remove the water pump.

Thanks Jay!

Loud squeeking coming from the belt area


you'll have to the belt if the belt is old.
also, a temporary solution i learned that gets rid of some of the noise is to slowly pour a pitcher of water on the belt while the car is on.

A constant squeeking noise coming from under the hood.


Hello there.An easy way to see if its the belt is to spray a little water on the belt and if it clears up the belt is harden which usually happens in extreme heat.If you could find some belt dressing they call it if the water test does prove to stop noise will work or replacing the belt will cure the problem.Hope this helps you and have a great day..
