Getting to timing chain without tearing down engine 2000 dodge intrepid


I assume you're talking about the 2.7L V6. As you're probably aware (having had it apart before), the timing is properly set by aligning the colored links on the primary timing chain with the marks on the crank sprocket and cam sprockets. The only way I know of to see all these at the same time is to remove the timing cover, and you have to tear the engine apart to remove the timing cover.

Radio station wont change and seat heaters not working


Are you talking about the radio selector on the steering wheel? If so the only thing you can do without tearing apart the steering wheel (which isn't for the faint of heart) is cycle that button several times, to clean the internal contacts of the switch. As for the seats check all the fuse panel locations for a blown fuse. If the seat htr fuse is good, then you need to check power at the heat switch on the seat. If there is power and ground at the switch then assume the worst for the heater.

2003 Galant 4cyl .. After not knowing Car timing belt was what broke ..Car was attempted to turn on various times... How will I know if I have to re-built the engine ?


The Galant has an interference engine, when the timing belt breaks the valves stop and the pistons strike them. At the least you need a new head. There is really no way to tell how much damage was done without tearing the engine apart.

2008 Ford fusion, the airbag light will not go off what would most likely be the problem there is know other problem at this time. The car still rum find. I need a starting point.


There are many things to check, like tearing the dash apart, tearing the steering wheel apart. The best place to start is to have the codes read. This will give you a starting point and avoid unnecessary work.

2003 gmc 2500 hd has spark has 60lbs fuel pressure has compression tried starting fluid won't start


Hi, at this point, I usually see if I can check valve timing without tearing the engine apart. Unfortunately, with a pushrod gasoline engine, which I'm thinking you have, the timing marks are just above the crankshaft. This requires removal of the crank pulley and damper to access the timing cover. :o(
It may be easier but not as definitive to pull off the bank 1 valve cover to see how late after #1 TDC (exhaust stroke) the intake valve is opening. If it's not opening right after TDC, the cylinder will not take a fuel/air charge. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

My timing belt has just snapped on my mitsubishi car how would i go about replacing it?


Hi there. If your timing belt snapped well the car was idled up at road speed there is a good chance it did serious damage to valves or pistons. I cant gurantee it but unfourtiantly there is no good way to tell without pulling the motor apart and checking the valves and pistons, etc. If the car was just idling when it broke, you may be all right but once again no way to be sure without tearing it down and having it checked. If you decide its worth trying to replace the belt you would want to get a shop manual such as haynes or chiltons for the procedure because this is a big job. More than likely the easiest way involves pulling the engine.

You are going to have to tear it apart, chances are something in the operating mechanism is broken and until that is fixed you are stuck.
