Question about Cars & Trucks
I just recently replaced a timing belt with new and all that comes in kit, water pump seals a pulleys, etc... when I tore into it I found old timing belt to be shredded and the timing was lost and had to be reset... so after replacing everything I reset timing the best I could figure out using diagrams and instruction found on youtube, auto md, and other various sites, after timing was reset I manually turned engine over by hand to check timing, I did this about 10 times just to be sure, it always checked out fine so I reassembled and tried to start but engine only turns and will not fire...any suggestions????
Have you checked for spark , gas etc , try the obd codes as will not always bring up the cel

Depending on your vehicle there is a good chance that your engine is an interference engine, or and engine that does not have enough room for the piston to be at the top of the cylinder and the valve to be open at the same time. When this happens the valve gets bent and will no longer close. You need to do a compression check and see if you are low on compression on one or more of your cylinders.

SOURCE: I usually answer questions, but
Pretty sure they are standard right hand threads. All that I've worked on are. One thing to try, is to hold extra tension on the tensioner, while you try to loosen the big hex nut. (I'm assuming you have this setup.) There is a tool that fits in an air hammer that is designed to do this, but that's not much help unless you have air. There are also manual wrenches that you can hit with a hammer that are designed to loosen the fan, and these were in fact the original dealership shop tools, until someone invented the air hammer variety. You may want to try autozone, or oreilly, and see if they rent those. If this doesn't help, please get back to me , and we'll figure something else out!

It is common practice to replace the water pump when replacing the water pump also. If the timing belt has recently been replaced than it would not be necessary to replace it again. If the belt is original than it makes perfect sense to replace it when the water pump is replaced as the timing belt will need to be removed in order to replace the water pump. There is no additional labor coast just the additional parts cost of the timing belt.
When it is done you shouldn't have to worry about it for the next 100,000 miles or so.
If you don't replace it when you have the water pump replaced than down the road when the timing belt is due for service you will have to pay for all the labor costs again to replace the water pump.
