What is the posistion for the timing chain for a 1998 acura tl


Curtis: The Acura TL had two different engines in it. Neither used timing chains.
Settings for the timing belts are as follows: this is on the 2.5 liter.
Before you pull it apart, break the front crank pulley bolt loose.
Line up the white mark on the pulley with the pointer on lower cover.
Berfore you pull the crank pulley, break the cam bolt loose.
Recheck the crank pulley marks with pointer. Remove the obvious to gain access to the timing covers.
NOTE, if you look at the cam gear will have the word "up" should be on the up side. There should be notches cut on opposite sides of the gear which should line up perfectly with the timing cover... You should have a timing belt tensioner still in place before, when you do your initial check.
After you remove the crank pulley and the timing cover, the woodruff key should be at 12:00 PM
You will also see if you look closer, at the gear. a punch mark, above the woodruff kny. There is an arroe cast into the block. This assures you that you have maintained alignment.

On the 3.2 V-6 same scenario. Remove all the **** surrounding your access to the timing covers and belt. After getting the front crank bolt loose, realign the timing marks to bring it to TDC (Woodruff key @ 12:00 PM) In changing the timing belt on this engine, remove the belt tensioner and you should be able to install the belt without removing the gears.
The right (passengers side) cam gear has a notch cut in the outside edge of the gear. There should be an alignment mark just behind it if you have it set fairly close.The drivers side should be the same.On both engines, make sure when you install the belt, the drivers side is ligned up perfectly and the belt is tight between the left side of the sprocket and the crank gear. Run the belt over to the other cam, making sure the cam is still ligned up. the belt without the tensioner will be real sloppy. Get a small clamp you can place to hold the belt in place on the right cam until you have the tensioner in place.
In checking on both of these engines, they are not intereference fit motors, in short, they are not prone to bending valves. Good luck.

Can the axle be replaced without taking off tie rod


What is the issue with the tie rod. You can put it back. It won't change alignment.
Are you in the middle of this, and trying to remove as little as possible?
You have to break the suspension loose, to get the axle out.

How to change the back light


Open the rear door and look for 2 pop-off caps on the suspected tail light assembly covering philips screws. If you remove both screws, the tail lightassembly becomes quite loose.

The last step is to give a firm tug, directly backward. The whole assembly is held in place with three small plastic clips (round cone shaped devices pushed through holes in the rear body work with a rubber "washer" protecting the paint).

You have to pry them loose from their insertion mounts to remove the assembly. A firm tug works well, but don't pull to the side or you may break the clip (or clips), and then have to replace those too. Once you've pulled the assembly off, the lights are easily accessed and replaced.

To reassemble, simply reverse the process.

[Note: there is no cover for the bottom screw on the rear door hinge side. It is exposed. There are two possible bolts on the bottom side of the door; the one for the tail light assembly is the one you can remove with a philips head screw. It can be accessed by opening the door and fitting a screw driver through the opening behind the door.]

There all located below exhaust manafold on each side. They are a bear to chg. but can be done without engine removel.

How to replace water pump on 1995 dodge dakato 5.2 liter V8


When I do those I find it's easier to get some of the stuff out of the way. Fan shroud, Alternator, AC compressor(don't remove AC hoses just swing it over to the side) and the AC/alternator mount bracket. If you don't have the special hose clamp plyers they are worth buying. (those clamps are difficult with regular plyers) The fan clutch has a special wrench which is thinner. When you start the job break loose the fan clutch before you remove the belt. It keeps tension on the pulley. The nut is normal threading and usually comes loose with a sharp rap of the hammer on the fan clutch wrench.
Here is an illustration of the water pump bolts. I hope this helps you out. let me know how it goes.6f7219e.gif

Engine will randomly shut off while driving at various speeds, sometimes while idling. also security system often does not work, and sometimes activates itself and sounds alarm.


1993 Mitsubishi 3000 GT stalls for no good reason, you never really know for sure exactly when it’s going to happen. It might start up right away, or after a few cranks. It may be hard to start in the first place. This could be caused by a faulty ignition switch, and could be easily repaired.
.5- If the engine cranks but wont start, hold the key firmly pressed inward or frontward while trying to start.
1- If the engine starts: energetically jiggle the ignition key back and forth while the engine is running.
2- If the engine stalls at any time while doing this, then you may have a defective ignition switch.
2.5- Remove the Ignition key from the ignition.
3- Remove the four screws from underneath the steering column cover.
4- Hold the lower half of the cover with both hands and pull it apart from the upper half. You might have to use some force to overcome the locking tabs, you might have to tilt the steering wheel up or down to remove the covers.
5- Insert the ignition key back into the key cylinder (ignition switch)
6- Turn the key to the on position (don’t start the engine)
7- Move the key in and outward while observing the opposite side of the key cylinder
8- If the opposite end of the key cylinder moves even a little, while moving the key; then the wiring side of the ignition switch has popped out of the key cylinder and needs to be secured back into place. (You don’t have to replace the key cylinder)
9- Press the wiring end of the key cylinder inward and tie it down firmly with a strong nylon zip tie.
10- This should take care of the problem.
10.5- Remove the ignition key.
11- Reinstall the removed parts.

Don’t use a rubber band to tie down the loose ignition part; it will break-off when the ignition switch gets hot.
