Most likely. timing belts are a notoriously hard (and usually expensive) fix. you may have to hit a garage for that one. make sure of that knock as well

I have to change the waterpump on a Diahatsu Sirion 1.3 2007 model. Are there any hidden problems I might encounter, or is there any special attention I need to know about? Any special tools needed?

its not that difficult just remember to loosen the pulley bolts before removing the fan belt. The belt helps to keep the pulley from turning making it easier to loosen the pulley bolts

Is replacement of 2007 Daihatsu Sirion 1.3 fanbelt a relatively simple task or is it for a professional mechanic only?

DO IT YOURSELF... It IS fiddly but perfectly do-able.. easiest way to do it is to remove plastic 'dirt shield' from driver's side inner wing (next to drive shaft and brake line) obviously wheel removed, or rotated is ok.. removal of modern plastic 'tat' is simple (area of cylinder head) allowing as much finger access as possible..not much room down the side of these puppies!! Next you need to de-tension the 'serpentine' belt BUT I WOULD RECOMEND DRAWING BELT & PULLEY SET UP FIRST or taking several photos.. as a reminder of if belt goes over or under (makes sense when you see it) Use blunt engineer's screwdriver (or any blunt long driver, rod, etc) to help push and pull old and new belt about.. REMEMBER TO RE-TENSION THE TENSIONING PULLEY...BUT DONT OVER DO IT!! THE BELT WILL TIGHTEN EVEN MORE AFTER SHORT RUN IN.. ALLOW SLIGHT DEFLECTION.. 6 to 10mm should do... cleanliness is the key really, as with all engine jobs(!) Allow 2hrs to do... if you've never done before... ok?

I've 1995 eagle talon esi non turbo 2.0 dohe I was driveing it and it stooped running it will turn over but won't start what can Ido

check the timming belt. it sounds like you have broken the timming belt remove the belt cover and make sure that the camshafts are turning when you are cranking the engine, if the belt has broken you will most likly have to remove the cylinder head and replace all the valves, when this engine brakes the timming belt the valves will hit the top of the pistons and bend the valves...good luck

I have a noise or nock in front of the engine that gets quite at approximatly 3000 rpms

Could be timing chain hitting the cover. You might consider removing the drive belts and running the engine for 30 seconds to see if the noise goes away. After starting the engine once with the drive belts off, I would then listen to the timing cover using a stethascope or long screw driver against your ear. Be careful around the crankshaft pulley during these tests...I hope this helps.

Replace timing belt on Volvo S60

There is no room for error...... Zero clearance. If off one tooth it can and will bend valves. if you are one that just feels the need to get alittle dirty or just can't pay for the service, then get out your Haynes out and turn to .....Tune up, and look at replacing timming belt. Get a cam gear tool that locks them into place so as that they will not move when u have them lined up. make sure they are lined up with marks as said in book. then make sure crank as well as all marks are lined up acordingly. make sure belt marks are lined up with everything. i would reccomend using a volvo belt though cause it will have all the marks on it.However other company's make good quality belts also at a fraction of the price. So it is really up to you.
Good thing when doing timming belt is to also change out your timming belt tensioner. YES do this it will save you a engine in the long run. it is a moving part that will go bad, it will freeze up and snap timming belt. rip out teeth in thebelt and bend valves. So as a gen rule...When you change timming belt, Change belt tensioner at same time since you cant just change tensioner without changing or getting timming belt off. Remember to use your HAYNES. It is your friend and will save you money in the long run. Good luck... Hope this helps you.

Motor was running smooth new cambelt service ect,adjusted timming because could hear pinning on accelaration switched car off for one hour, while looking for an electrical fault on aircon turned aircon...

if you turned the motor backwards and then tried to start belt could have jumped this is a interferance motor which means the valves overlap the pistons ! you could have bent the valves.take it back to the person who did your timing belt

Your engine is probably an EJ-DE twin cam 12 valve.

Generally Daihatsu belts have marks on them that line up with dimples on the sprockets for the intial phasing. You rotate the engine to top dead centre on No1 piston and install the belt from there. The cams should be not be putting any pressure on the intake and exhaust valves of No1 when phased correctly.
