Locate timing belt and water pump on a 94 geo prism

old post,
the prizm is a toyota.
they had 3 engines.
see this page, for links to all you need to know.

your engine sides sideways. FWD car.
this fact makes service hard. unlike RWD cars. and trucks.
the crank pulley and pump are on the right side (drivers perceptive)
seen left, facing engine bay.

see the top of engine, that is the valve cover
look to the left
see that wider part, that is the cam cog and belt side.

what you really need are all the instructions on how to do this
and not mess it up;.
the steps are covered, fully
just log in , and read engine chapter under timing belt service.
its like 50 steps.

see links and facts above.
the first step is to find out what engine is in your car.
4A or 7A

When should i replace the timing belt 2006 kia optima

Most manufacturers say 100,000 miles. It is something that should be done before then, I believe; because engine damage can result from the belt breaking, and it will leave you stranded. The timing belt is not something you should attempt, unless you have engine mechanical experience. If you don't, I recommend that you get it done at a shop as soon as you can afford it. $700 is a lot of money, but a possible engine replacement and a tow is a lot more!

2000 Windstar 3.8L,, If the timing belt goes, is it no clearance between the valves and pistons?

No there is no clearance, so you will bend your valves which will cost you much more to replace than a $20 timing belt plus labor.

May have broken timing belt, car ran yesterday but won't start today.Is the audi v8 a clearance motor or not

According to the Gates Timing belt guide your engine is not an interference type engine, it is a clearance type as u say.. Just replace the belt, this engine requires special camshaft holding fixtures to replace the belt or there make shift equivalent.

I have a 1991 geo prizm engine type L4,vin engine code 6 single overhead came. I am going to change the plugs and wires i just had a timing belt changed would it throw the belt off & does the spark...

No, it should make a difference if you replace the plugs and wires when it comes to your timing belt. It will not effect the timing belt at all.
