What I did was change my crank seal so I had to take my belt off the crank gear, so I DID AND I put the belt back on and it would not crank I like to know if you can sent me a diagram of the timing belt set up.

line up the marks on crank shaft gear arrow to arrow, the front cam gear the mark goes to the middle on the rear cam gear the mark goes one notch below front gear mark they line up when the tension is put on belt.
First pull the timing belt tensioner then slip the belt off the cam gears. You then need to find TDC (Top dead center). 3 ways to find TDC 1) There are marks on the crank pulley align them for TDC. 2) Remove timing cover and use crank gear mark seen in link below 3) Put the dip stick in cylinder 1 and turn engine until dip stick stops going up. After finding TDC align cam gear marks seen in link below. Now make sure both cam and crank stay in position and slip timing belt back on (you can move the cam gear to get the belt on but make sure the marks are aligned after the belt is on). Last tighten the belt tensioner, I usually use my finger or an extension to get some more tension on the belt. You might have to remove engine mount bracket makes life much easier as the front cover section is TIGHT !!!. Turn engine a few times to make sure you have compression and engine turns without getting stuck. See link below good luck.
Hello I am a Guru from Fixya,I will answer your question,You have three seal behind the timing cover you have 2 cam seal that could be leaking and a crank seal.You replace them seals and I am sure you will stop your oil leak.It is a pretty good job to get into.You have to take the motor mount off out of the way ,take the cover off out of the way,take the timing belt off out of the way and make sure you have all your timing marks alined before taking the timing belt off,You have to take both timing gears off out of the way and then you can see the camshaft seal to replace and then take the timing gear off the crank and then you can see the seal on the crank to replace and then put it all back togeather. and your oil leak is cured.
This sounds like the crank seal, the engine doesnt have to be removed, in order to get to seal is like replacing the ttiming belt, and once in the timing belt i would replace the crank and cam seals, also do the timing belt, and maybe the waterpump, you will need to remove the crank pulley and then the timing covers then align timing marks for timing belt before ou remove it, with timing belt off the crank pulley then slides off the crankshaft and the seal is behind it, the cam shaft gear unbolts and the seal is behind the gear, once the gears are off then you will be able to remove the seals from the engine,heres a few diagrams to help. good luck and i hope this is helpful,
yes, I just changed one of these recently. Had to take both front and bottom off engine. Very difficult repair, as there are no good jack points for the engine when you have all the motor mounts off.
Here is procedure I would recommend.
Remove starter and engine to transmission brackets front and back.
Remove transmission starter gear cover.
drain oil and remove oil pan.
put a block under the crankshaft and jack to release weight on motor mount.
remove front motor mount (by serpentine belt)
remove compressor and bracket.
remove crank pulley and vib damper.
remove timing cover. mark timing belt with direction of travel
loosen tensioner gear.
remove timing belt.
remove crankshaft timing gear and key.
remove seal and oil pump housing.
clean gasket surfaces.
replace seal and reverse procedure.
Sorry, can not fine a timing diagram, both cam's should read (up) at 45 deg., both timing mark's should meet at center, looking at motor, the right gear at timing mark st 9 o'clock, and left gear timing mark at 3 o'clock, the crank gear timing mark at about 1 o'clock, alidn mark on crank gear, with mark on housing, I hope this helps you, also the timing belt part number is Gates # T265.
you will need a impactgun or a way to hold pulley and then get bolt loose. before you take the belt off, turn the crank until the cam is lined up. there is a small hole on the cam gear, this will be at 12'oclock and a mark is directly behind it.(look through the hole to see mark) then look where the crank gear is, there will be a mark to line it up at TDC. to do th ebest job, replace the cam and crank seals, water pump and reseal the oil pump. replace the tensioner pulley.be sure to tension the belt correctly.
If you aren't a pretty good shade tree mechanic I don't recommend you try it. You need a seal removal tool and if you have to be very careful not to scratch the crankshaft when removing the seal. If you have had the head replaced lately I can tell you that you may have the head gasket on wrong causing the pressure to build up at the crank seal! You have to remove the timing belt and belt gear to get to the seal.
just get a new timing belt the marks will be on it point the arrows toward the front of the truck and line the marks on the cams and crank with the lines on the belt there will be a dimple on the cams and crank those are the timing marks good luck
Timing belt has marks on it that refer to the cam marks and the crank gear. Looking at the engine from the front, the timing belt should drape over the two cam gears, with 40 cogs between them on the belt. The timing belt should have 42 or 43? cogs between the driver cam mark and the mark on the crank gear. The way i've installed mine is to put the belt on the driver side cam and crank, and then put it on the passenger side cam. You'll need to lock the tensioner clockwise about 70-80 degrees to get enough clearance to install the belt.
