Very sensitive set up.There are special tools needed that make things much easier on the 3.0 liter.If you miss time it you can bend valves & due major damage to valves & heads.Best advise I can give from afar is get yourself a good haynes manual.They are not bad if you have done a few of them & have the special tools.hope this helps

I have a mazda millenia s millennium edition. One day I was driving and I heard a loud crack or pop. My car drove for a little longer then completely cut off and would stall trying to start. Long story...

Do you mean the timing belt or the serpentine drive belt that does your alternator, aircon pulley etc. If it is the timing belt then you have big trouble because it almost always results in engine damage. If its the second then its taken several parts with it and you need a knowledgeable person to assess the damage. Do not attempt to turn the engine over again until a full check is done. Go to bing or google images, type in your vehicle model, year etc and timing belt and see what pics pop up. It may give you some idea.

I just got my heads redone on my 1998 honda passport and timing belt as well ,but now my check engine light is on, it wasnt on before that why now ?

A sensor may still be disconnected from when the work was done or a vacuum line is still disconnected. Sometimes one is overlooked when everything is put back together. If your check engine light is on, it means the computer has set a trouble code. Get the code read (major auto parts stores will do it for free) and it should lead you to the trouble area.

Check for a broken timing belt....this would explain no spark because the rotor button turn by the camshaft and the crankshaft turns the camshaft via the timing belt.hope this helps,

Does the 4.2 engine have a belt or timing chain.

4.2 s4 engines don't have a timing belt,It is a chain.The engine is mounted backwards,so they used a chain.

When dose a timing belt need to be replaced on a 2003 express van?

This van has a timing chain, which should last for the life of the engine. The LS engines, which I'm guessing you have one of the 4.8,5.3,or 6.0L, use a high quality roller timing chain that is long-lasting, and won't give you issues. Also, having roller lifters, the camshaft puts less resistance on the timing chain, so the combination of a strong chain coupled with less resistance, makes for a reliable chain.

Just had water pump & timing belt done running

They don't have to be done together but it is a really good idea. Did you take it back to the person who did it?

What milage should you change the timing belt kia sportage

It's customary to change timing belt and water pump anywhere between 80K-120K miles.  I typically try to get them done on my vehicles before I reach 100K unless I'm having trouble before that.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for an honest rating.

well donna that depends on how the engine is taken care of. if you change engine oil and filters every 3000 miles and do regular tune ups your vehicle can potentially have no major engine componant failure for at least 150,000-200,000 miles. you have most likely either a 3.4 or a 3.8 V6 engine and for the most part those GM engines are very durable. Timing chain and gear issues are something no on can really predict but the better you take care of the vehicle the less likely you are to have to repair it. your vehicle is 12 years old and at an average of 15,000 -20,000 miles a year your vehicle is already at the threshold of it's max potential. so it could fail tommorow or never. the only way to determine the true condition of the componant is to look at it and this requires some work. hope this gives you some idea. please rate this.. thanks
