Are all of the timing notches on the belt and pulleys lined up correctly?

It is possible to do serious damage to the engine by fitting the timing belt incorrectly.

Good advice!

Also, if you replaced the timing belt due to the old one breaking for you, then I'm afraid most modern cars will need to have the top lifted and rebuilt since the pistons collide with the valves causing serious damage.

A compression test will be informative if you suspect this.

    This engine the saturn series 4g37 is a. SOHC non-interference type head not much chance of doing damage to anything just have a new timing belt and timing belt tensioned put on by a professional. Shouldn't cost more than 400$ if you buy the parts to do unless they try to charge you more than the book time calls for. Make sure u get a trusted mechanic to do the job.

I put timi belt and sparkplug on 2005 Kia amanti and ran for 5 min started runnig roughy it to coils put to new coils on it it ran 5minute and died now it won't start


Check the timing. Before I put anything back together I always start the car and make sure everything is okay. After puting the belt on you always want to rotate the crank two full revolutions to double check your timing. This is of course assuming u did the timing belt because of maintenance and not because it broke.

I think it is i will probably have to pull the timing belt, it sounds like it probably skipped due to the serpentine belt cords wrapped around something under the timing belt cover, any other suggestions on alternate causes before I start pulling the brand new timing belt?12
