A Honda is always worth servicing. The only time that you need to change the timing belt is if it breaks or the vehicle is almost at 200,000 miles on it. The blue smoke is a little worry some. But Honda's run forever and I feel like you should keep it

I have an 89 Toyota P/U 4cyl. w/air & power steering. I removed my harmonic balancer to repair/replace the front main seal. I replaced a new harmonic balancer and front main seal and a streaming o

Replacing the cam seal. You had to pull the timing belt. Because you had to remove the cam gear. This is where the problem is. Reset the timing and follow the manual to exact procedures. I recommend you replace all the timing components. Also, when you set the timing belt tensioner, Pry on it to get maximum tension. Before you put it together, turn the crank shaft two full turns (by hand/wrench/socket. Make sure it is on the marks. then reassemble.

Engine oil is dripping from the timing belt side of my 2000 accord after idling for about 5 minutes. Happened after cleaning the throttle body. Any help, ty

Cleaning your throttle body is irrelevent to the oil leak behind the timing cover. There are 5 seals that can leak behind the 2000 accord timing cover, the oil pump, crank seal, cam seal, and the 2 balancer seals. Most of the time its the front balancer seal that has popped out and will need to be replace and have and retaining kit install. Its actually very common on that engine. I highly recommend taking it to a professional to get repaired because timing the 2 balancer gears with the cam and crank is very tricky even for the mechanically inclined. Since the timing belt and the balancer belt has to come off and is probably soaked in oil, I recommend replacing those as well.

Timing chain gasket replacement

it is not a chain it is a belt. if you have oil comming out of the cover it is either a balance shaft seal cam or crank seal. the timing belt will need to come off to replace them. do your self and replace your water pump and timing belt while you have it apart. hope this helps mike

What else needs to be changed when doing a timing belt on a 1999 honda accord? and about how much should it cost?

Technically, nothing else needs to be changed when replacing a timing belt, however it is recommended or suggested to replace the timing belt tensioner and water pump while doing the belt. These items are only accessable when doing a timing belt. The cost should be under $100.00

I need to change the timing belt on my 93 940 volvo

This is definitely not ajob for the beginner. The cams will need to be locked down with a special tool. If they move at all, your timing will be way out and you will have some serious trouble on your hands. Either take it to a dealer or a shop that works on Volvo. Most shops will turn down a timing belt job on a Volvo. When replacing the timing belt, you also need to replace the water pump, front crank seal, both cam seals, and im not 100% sure but I think the 940 has a balance shaft belt that will need to be replaced. I may be wrong about the balance shaft belt. The total cost of this job will be from 800.00 to 950.00 depending on the shop

Water pump and beyond

well at 86,000 miles ive never replaced a tensioner or idler pully on a subaru maybe at 120,000 or more, it is more time to replace the crank seal and the cam seals and then the price of the pullys is about that 450.00 but dont think pullys were needed at this time, the timing belt is a no brainer got to replace, you dont know if coolant got to belt it could weaken. but the waterpump ,belt and seals and t-stant is all that should of been done,well now your good with pullys for100,000miles. good luck.

I was told by a consumer that there is an expensive maintance problem that you have to get done to kia serento ex every 60,000 miles is this true

Yes - that's the timing belt service. It's the most expensive of the service intervals, but it's not unique to the Sorrento. Most cars require it. It involves considerable external engine disassembly, and the installation of a new timing belt, timing tensioner, water pump, thermostat, various idler pulleys, cam and crank seals, accessory belts, all fluids, all filters, and spark plugs. In addition, there is usually a brake and suspension inspection and a tire rotation.

I have a ACURA 3.5 RL with only 138000 KM and wondering if I should replaced the timing belt and water pump

If you know that the timing belt has not been changed at the regular interval or ever been changed, then YES. Also change the water pump and timing belt tensioners.
Its normal to change every 80,000 - 100,000 km

Oil is spiling out from the side of the engine

you have a leaking seal. Possible valve cover, cam, crank, balancer seal. If its coming from within the timing cover, you will need a timing belt and cam,balancer, crank seal replacement. It's also recommended to replace the waterpump while performing this repair(if it hasnt been done recently).
