Can I change the defective timing belt by myself. How to do it and what kind of tools that I need.


Changing a timing belt is somewhat advanced for a DIY.
You have to remove whats on the passenger side of the engine and then put it back in the right place. The timing belt has to be aligned with all of the pulleys.
If you want to tackle it, I would buy a book and read the process over first.

Tip

When should I change the timing belt on my car?


The philosophy "if ain't broke do not fix", doesn't work for the timing belt. If it broke, then can bend valves and put a hole in the piston. Normally the engine repair cost much more than a timing belt change. Worn timing chain/belt can cause engine to run rough, decrease the power, and fuel mileage, and even worse, the engine refuses to run at all. It is difficult to check the wear on a timing belt, because access difficulties, so plan to change the belt at recommended intervals. As a rule, most OEM recommend replacing OHC rubber timing belts at 60Kmiles, but there are exceptions. Porsche, Volvo recommends belt replacement at 50K up to 100K depending on engine models. Acura, Audi and Chrysler allow 90K between belt changes. Ford, Mercury and Toyota up to 100K, but not for all engines. Changes in belt materials have improved belt durability to 100K, where "long life" materials are used, as "highly-saturated-nitrile" (HSN).
Timing chains usually gives some warning signs before they fail (but not with belts). Noise from inside the timing chain cover indicates that it is overstretched. You can check the status of a timing chain by removing the distributor cap and turn the crank shaft pulley in one direction (VERY SLOWLY) until distributor rotor moves, mark with a chalk crank shaft pulley to engine. Now turn it in the opposite direction (VERY SLOWLY) until the distributor rotor starts to move the other way. If the crank pulley has to be turned more than half an inch to move rotor, the timing chain and sprockets, are worn up, and have to be replaced.
While changing the timing chain/belt, it is easily accessible for other jobs, such a water pump replacement, so it is a good idea to replace other belts, and the water pump. Make sure to send your car to professionals. It is not rare for people to have problems with engine after replacing the timing belt. In all my cars I do it by myself. It is not impossible, but you will spend more time than a professional. If you decide to do it by yourself, then get the Haynes Repair Manual (Based on a complete tear down and rebuilt), specific for your car. Go to the part Engine, and use the chapter Timing belt removal inspection, and Top Dead Center (TDC) location, and put the number one piston at TDC on the compression stroke. This can be found by putting the thumb over the spark plug hole and the pressure will push your finger upward till piston reaches the upper point. This can be done by inserting a long blunt object into the spark plug hole. Note the point where the object stops moving out this is the TDC.
YOU MUST ALIGN TIMING MARKS BEFORE REMOVING TIMING BELT.

Shop says my 2002 Honda CR-V needs to have a camshaft position sensor replaced. Can you tell me where it's located and if I can replace it myself? I have some knowledge from working on my own vehicles. ...


The TDC sensor (aka camshaft position sensor) is located under the same cover as the timing belt. Incidently, the water pump is also driven by the timing belt. The process for replacement of the TDC is not difficult, just involved. Here is a link that I hope you will find helpful; It gives step-by-step instructions with photos on how to change the TDC. This is for a civic, but the setup for the CR-V is essentially the same. If you have high mileage, you will also want to check the condition of the timing belt and water pump while you have everything apart. If you decide to replace the other parts as well, you will need the associated gaskets, timing belt, water pump and belt tensioner. http://www.civicforums.com/forums/7-honda-civic-diys-civic-tech-chat/323984-diy-tdc-sensor-cmp-sensor-replacement-w-pics.html?8caa1db9f40a1e09f200d7c940d8cc64
If your computer will not let you click on the link directly, you can copy and paste it to your address bar.

Good luck and God Bless.

I replaced water pump on v6 and now car wont start. Is it possible to installl the timing belt incorrectly because i didnt do it myself?


If someone who knows how to change a timing belt didnt do it, then it is most likely wrong. Timing belts are one of the more delicate things to change. it the gear/pully, location needs to be marked on the block with the #1 cylinder at TDC (top dead center) before removal or it will be installed wrong. I hope this help. Please rate this Thank You

How Do I Change the Timing Belt on my 2004 Accent?


The timing belt is inside the valve cover. You have to remove the the valve cover gasket. Underneath that you will find the valves, the head (the top of the engine block). There is a pulley that is used to tighten the timing belt. The pulley is attached to the piston and valve timing. This pulley is usually marked as to where it should be positioned in relationship the timing of the pistons and the cam shaft rotation. This is what is referred to as stting the timing in the engine, and the timing of the distributor. Since your belt is broken the engine has lost track of its timing, so you might have to refer to a manual on your model of car to set the timing. You will also need to replace the valve cover gasket when you put the valve cover back on.
