You're timing marks must be off. If the marks on the gears aren't perfectly aligned, it just won't run right. Take off the cover and make sure that when #1 cylinder is at top dead center, the marks are perfect.

My 1995 subaru legacy wont idle after changeing timeing belt


If the vehicle was idling proper before timing belt replacement, it is possible the valve timing is not correct due to belt not being installed/lined up properly. If belt was changed because it was broken, chances are there is valve damage internal to the engine causing this issue

Sounds like you have one or both of the belts off by a tooth. Did u use cam locks to hold the camshafts in place. If it is a zero tolerance engine you may have messed a few things up.

Can a timing belt keep your windows from working properly


Make sure the alternator is good. Not enough power will cause assesories not to work properly. But as far as timing belt if its idling to low it will make windows roll up slower. But timing belt its self should not cause any problems with electrical stuff

A loud noise around the area of the timing belt cover at regular idle. Disappears when driving, then reappears when at idle again.


Dear SIr,
As you saying noise wont come in driving and only comes in idle , it means noise will not come if RPM is high by norma in idle l, try this one start the car don't drive it just raise RPM(rotation per minute of only engine not vehicle speed) in neutral gear , if noise disappear that mean it a problem of drive belt . If drive belt is got less tension then also it can occur or belt is damage, replace belt problem will solve, (for reference drive belt it drive alternator,powersteering pump,A/C compressor that is made by rubber).Thanks if any problem ask me.
Yogesh.

It would not run good at all if it was the timing belt. In fact it probably wouldn't even start at all. It sounds more like loose bolts on the starter or the tension pully that keeps the serpentine belt tight. That one has to be replaced.

Car is making loud noise & wont idle


your timing marks must be off for the car not to idle. the timing belt is too tight, that is where the noise is coming from. rule of thumb is you should be able to twist the timing belt to just under 90 degrees on the longest section after the tensioner has tensioned and nut on pully it tightened. tensioners usually tension more than they need to.

check timing it should be 5 b tdc 600 idle speed . this is for manual or automatic . check fuel pressure it should be 38 psi. when check timing idle speed should be at 600-800 rpms.your timing has to be checked using a scanner only. not adjustable with timing light.
