I assume you are changing the timing belt. I am a mechanic and although not familiar with your vehicle, you would usually locate the timing mark on the bottom pulley and line this up. Careful not to turn the engine over too hard as pistons can strike valves. then you should look for similar marks on the camshaft pulley[s], and line these up. Then fit belt. This has to be tensiond correctly which is important. Hope this helps. Mike the bike01.

Your engine is probably an EJ-DE twin cam 12 valve.

Generally Daihatsu belts have marks on them that line up with dimples on the sprockets for the intial phasing. You rotate the engine to top dead centre on No1 piston and install the belt from there. The cams should be not be putting any pressure on the intake and exhaust valves of No1 when phased correctly.

SOURCE: should O/D off always light or unlight?

The light should normally be "off", by pushing the small button on the transmission shifter. For power or passing at high speed, push the button again to light "O/D off", signifying that the overdrive is off. Overdrive (O/D) is normally for cruising at highway speeds to maximize gas mileage. Having it off increases the motor RPM's, increasing power, and decreasing mileage and gas efficiency.

For most purposes turn "on" overdrive, and the light on the dash should go out.

SOURCE: change the oil filter of a daihatsu copen

unless there is something unusual about it... the filter unscrews and you install a new one. you should put a drop of oil on your finger and rub it around the filter gasket before you screw it back on the motor. often you will need an oil filter wrench, abit of a misnomer as it is basically a band that goes around the oil filter with a handle. the newer style is a large socket piece that fits over the end of the oil filter and you turn with a rachet.

How often should we change fuel filter for Nissan Teana


hi Drkmaniir.
Changing out your car's fuel filter may not be at the top of your routine auto maintenance list like oil changes and tire rotations. Heck, you may not even know what a fuel filter is.
But mechanics say periodically replacing fuel filters is a good idea because it helps keep your fuel pump and engine running smoothly.
The fuel pump is designed to catch particles, debris or impurities in the gas tank before the fuel reaches the pump, to ensure only clean gasoline reaches your engine.
"They get overlooked a lot and then can go unchanged for quite awhile with no problem," says Frank Satriano, owner of Coachman Automotive in Clearwater, Florida. "Some cars have them in the gas tank and never get serviced, so it just depends on the car and what the manufacturer recommends."

It's important to note that many newer vehicles come with a non-serviceable filter located in the fuel tank, so you'll want to check your owner's manual to see whether it needs to be replaced.

Why you should replace your fuel filter

Like any filter, debris will clog it up over time. This causes the fuel pump to work harder, which can in turn lead to it breaking down. Engines can also be damaged from contaminated fuel.
"Today's vehicles are equipped with more state-of-the-art fuel injectors, which have very tight clearances," says Katy Kreitzer, service manager of Kreitzer's Automotive Service in Enola, Pennsylvania. "If debris enters the fuel injector, it can clog the fuel passages and damage the injector. This may also result in a dripping of fuel instead of a fine spray mist that is required for efficient combustion."
According to Ford Motor Co., you may want to think about changing the filter if the car is difficult to start, idles rough or stalls, has sluggish acceleration, decreased fuel economy or has a tank of bad gas.

"Thirty thousand miles is a good idea for a ballpark interval."Bob Waeiss, owner of Integrity Automotive in Carmel, Indiana, says the old best practice would be to replace the filter every 30,000 miles but that's no longer the norm, he says."As clean as most fuels are today, you could push that off to 60,000 or 90,000 miles," Waeiss says. "Replacing a fuel filter for the first time at or above 100,000 miles may cause a fuel pump failure. Not sure why, other than over time the filter becomes restricted and the pump has to work harder to push the fuel through the line. When a new filter is installed, the pump can't handle the free flow, and it stops pumping."

My 2007 Toyota Yaris is due for a 160,000km service. Does the fuel filter need to be done?


No. I do not think that you ever have to change the fuel filter. You probably just have a fuel screen inside the gas tank. I checked the manufacturers maintenance service schedule. It does not even mention the fuel filter at all.

Does the fuel filter on a 1998 Ford Escort ever need replacing? The owner's service manual doesn't require it.


The fuel filter does need to be changed, approximately every 30,000 miles / 24 months, whichever comes first.

I want to service my vehicle


If you want to do a full service:
Change oil and filter
Change fuel filter
New spark plugs
Check all fluids:
Transmission fluid
Brake fluid
Power steering fluid
Coolant (anti-freeze)
Rotate tires, and do a grease job, you will need a grease gun for that.
If you want just the minor
Change oil and filter
fuel filter, and spark plugs.

I dont have a problem per say but i went to get an oil change and they told me i need Transmission service $159.95 Coolant flush $89.95 Fuel induction service $99.95 and fuel filter $89.95 totaling in...


They are scamming you... never go there again... Not likely that you need those services on your 2007 Elantra.

Parts estimate:
Transmission service ~ $6
Coollant flush: $20 ~ $30
Fuel injection service $20
Fuel Filter: $13

Service estimate:
Transmission service $40
Coolant Flush $30
Injector service $50
Fuel Filter replace $20

Total Parts & Service = $209
However, you probably don't need all that...
Does your car have any particular problems?
Please comment ... Thanks..

Resently ran out of gas now cars running bad / 93 caprice


Change the fuel filter again and if you have fuel injectors, you need to get them sleaned....I believe some of those oil one stop service places will do it. If you have a carb, you need to blow it out....but change that filter....maybe even a few more times if you had that stuff come out the first time.
