SOURCE: 95 geo prizm hamonic balancer belt pulley

Wow!!! I don't think I would put that much faith in gorilla glue. I had the same problem and had to replace the hb pully. My belt ended up slipping and jumped a few teeth causing the car to be badly out of time. Fix it before that happens.

SOURCE: how do you set timing on 91 geo prizm

line up the key on the crankshaft with the little arrow/ marker thing on the front of the engine, just above the crank pulley. Turn the camshaft so that both valves on #1 are in the closed position, or, up, all the way.line the mark on the camshaft with the little dent thing on the top of the camshaft seal cover. Put your belt on and be careful not to move the cam or crank. After you get it installed, turn the engine over with a socket 2 complete revolutions, until the marks are both up again. If they aren't still exactly lined up the way they were, you are out a cog, and will have to do it again. This needs to be exact. After you get it, install everything and adjust the distributor timing. Good luck.

Why is oil leaking out of timing cover?

Bad gasket. Sometimes the seals around the valve stems break down and end up clogging the return oil holes. When this happens you get a flood of oil on top where it seeks a way to get out.

each car and years have different ways.
and on FWD cars, it can be a small horror.

id never own one. i run jeeps. easy to fix. and parts cheap and profuse.

find your engines. then go to gates belt do com and look it up
and see last column, "interference'?
or join a toy forum and ask there, after finding the engine code.

toy engine, 4aFE, 7AFE or 4AG
open hood look
or use the GM RPO tag
or Use the VIN to find motor used.

Oil leak front engine timing chan

1995 Tracker would have a timing BELT. Normal oil leak points (in order) on a Suzuki G16 engine are the distributor base (rear of motor), valve cover (top of motor), front main seal (behind lower timing belt cog) cam seal (behind the upper timing belt cog) and rear main seal. (behind the flywheel). I'd suspect the front main seal or cam seal. I use foot power to help find oil leaks.

How do I replace the Timing Belt on my '91 Geo Prizm?

Remove all nessary parts to access cover. Remove cover. Line up the timing makrs before removing old belt if car is still in running condition. Loosen the belt tensioner and remove belt. Install in reverse order making sure to load tension back on belt at the tensioner.

How to change a timing cover seal on a 1992 Geo Prizm? Car is leaking oil bad out front of engine, I assume it is the timing cover seals.

This is the same as a Toyota Corolla. Plan on replacing the timing belt and all associated parts. The problem is either the Camshaft or Crankshaft seals. Timing cover seal does NOT keep oil in the engine. The oil getting on the timing belt WILL cause premature failure.
