Your vehicle has a timing chain and does not need to be changed on a timeline. I have also never seem one go bad. The alternator belt and air conditioning belt do need to be replaced when they start to have visible cracks.

You can rotate the cam/crank into a positon that will not move as you remove the old belt, as long as the new belt places the cam/crank in same position as the old belt had them, it don't matter where the timing marks are. Leave your old belt on, rotate to a position that will not move or have tension on belt, (no matter the marks) and replace the belt. Make sure to recheck timing marks after new belt is installed by rotating the crank/cam back to timing marks, or just trust that the belt was replaced without the cam or crank rotated. Easy off, easy on, just make sure the cam/crank are still in time as the old belt had them located. NOTE: timing marks are there in case of a broke belt, or for a car that has jumped time. As long as cam and crank are held in same positon, and car was in time before the procedure, it don't matter where the timing marks are at during belt replacement.

How to replace a broken timing belt for a 1998 daewoo lanos?? Would there be any head damage?


yes it is quite possible that valves are bent if the cam belt broke or teeth stripped off of old belt, which unfortuneately means removing the cylinder head and getting it repaired (valves replaced and possibly guides) see some of my other posts for cam belt timming marks locations etc...
depending what motor is in your vehicle twin cam or single?

There usually not hard to replace. Take off belt, disconnect connector and there should be a nut hold a wire on, take that off then it should only be 2 or 3 bolts holding it in place.

Camry timing belt


Both the 2.2 Liter 4 cylinder and the 3.0 Liter V6 have a cam belt that must be replaced every 60,000 miles. The cam belt also drives the water pump and for this reason I recommend you replace the cam belt at 120,000 miles when you replace the cam belt the second time. Neither engine is an interference engine.

Manual for time belt replacemant Isuzu Trooper 1999, 3l disel engine


4JX1 diesel engine has a belt . 4JGE is a different engine completely. To change it set #1 on tdc fireing stroke using the mark on the back lip of the crank pulley (sit it at 12'oclock) and see the mark on the camshaft bearing matches the notch on the pulley .Ignore the marks on the lower belt pulley.
Tensioner and cover removal/replacement is standard and the chnage period is 60,000 miles.
