    This engine doesn't have a timing belt, it has a chain and gears for the balance shaft. What exactly is the problem?

When I start my 2001 hyundai elantra my engine vibrates I turned it off restarted and it did it again I put my hood up everything seem to run right except for one of my belts pop ac belt maybe start...

It sounds like the idle speed is set too low, and it is taking the PCM a few moments to figure the correct setting. If the engine is new, or new to the vehicle, perhaps the engine idle speed setting is incorrectly set too low.

cam sensor fail can be crank sensor fail engine will run with cam sensor fail but crank it will not fire. also recheck the timing belt settings you fit the timing belt and run engine till warm then recheck the belt adjustment to make sure its in line and at recommended tightness.

Just replaced blown head gasket now the car takes a long time to start and when it does it runs very ruff at idle but at 1500 rpm it levels out

did you have the heads milled or just throw a set of gaskets on it?You did put new spark plugs in it rite?

Engine noise after timing belt change 2004 gx470

Is that the noise you mean? Rough and loud? Yeah, it makes you wonder if the timing is off by a tooth or two, doesn't it?
There may be a viewing/access plug on the camshaft sprocket cover to see the cam sprocket timing mark, when the crankshaft is turned to TDC, or 0 degrees. If no plug or access to see the cam sprocket, it might be wise to re-check the timing. Is there any difficulty in starting the engine? Or does it seem to run warmer than normal? Was the belt tension set correctly? Just a few things to consider, good luck.

2003 Audi A4 Cabriolet Engine turns over but will not start

First determine if the engine timing belt is still good.

Pop off the clips holding the black plastic cover over the timing belt...and pull away so you can see the belt.( The end away from the transmission.)

Have someone watch the belt as you crank the motor.

Belt should smoothly run while cranking.

If have a broken set of teeth on the belt.

Need to set the timing on a 1990 maxima

im not sure about your car but some cars are interference engines,meaning if the timing belt breaks the valves will hit the pistons and it will bend the valves and the car will not run again just by putting a new belt on it,,hopefully thats not the case but alot of import cars are interference engines,,good luck

Yes, it is a interference engine. If you used the wrong procedure to align components before installing the timing belt, sometimes you can redo the correct procedure and fixed it. Good luck.
