The one item determining if this can be repaired is the condition of the keyway on the crankshaft and pulley. (the slot where the locating key goes) If the slot is severely damaged on either the crank or pulley, you will need to replace the damaged item. (if it's the crankshaft, its a really big job.) If it's not terrible, you can file it back to shape with a small flat file and get a new woodruff key. Chances are the majority of the damage is at the pulley. That should be changed. Otherwise, putting it back on is just a matter of sliding it on and tightening it up. (if you do this with hand tools, bring it to a shop afterwards and ask them to put an air gun on there to finish tightening.) You can usually get another pulley from any scrapyard far cheaper than a new one from dealer.

Hi,

You need to inspect the entire Camshaft Sensor Circuit, right back to the PCM.

Finally, you should also inspect the entire CRANKSHAFT sensor circuit and wiring, right back to the PCM....as Crankshaft circuit failure can sometimes trigger this code.

My motor was knocking i parked it and it never started back up and the cam froze up its an 1995 eclips turbo wat do u think is wrong with it


Sounds like it ran out of oil or antifreeze leaked into the oil--either of which will damage the bearings, pistons, crankshaft, camshaft, etc.. It might be time to look for another engine as this one will require major repairs. It might even be worthwhile to seek another car if the expense is too great. Hope this helps somewhat!

I am planning to replace the timing belt on my daughter's 95 Corolla and was wondering what I need to align where before removing the belt eg How do I find TDC? Camshaft pulley and Crankshaft pulley...


TDC is top dead center/ remove spark plug on cylinder no. 1/ rotate the crankshaft pulley using a socket wrench and power handle and check if the piston on your cylinder no. 1 reach the top center that is TDC/ remove timing belt cover and locate a synchronized marking on your camshaft and crankshaft pulley/ remove old timing belt/ install a new one but make sure that the mark on your camshaft and crankshaft is perfectly synchronized before putting the cover/ manually rotate the crankshaft pulley again and see if it rotates 360 deg. freely then you can be sure you did the job correctly.

Is it hard to change the timing belt on a 95 eclipse


The passenger side engine mount and the front engine mount must be removed, engine must be on a jack. Remove the serpentine and alternator belts, power steering pump, and crankshaft pulley. Remove the timing belt cover, and then remove the 2 bolts for the automatic tensioner.

Now is also a good time to replace the idler pulleys if they seem worn out.

The automatic tensioner needs to be compressed with a c-clamp, and held in place with a thick pin. Install the timing belt with the crank pulley arrow lined up with the arrow on the block, and the camshaft gear marks lined up with a straight edge from the center of both camshaft gear bolts. Install the automatic tensioner and release the pin.

Now, recheck the timing marks to ensure they are perfect, if not take the tensioner back off and try again.

Once everything is perfect, put it all back together.
