I'm attempting to do a timing belt change on my 2004 Chevy Aveo. The problem is when I took off the old timing belt I forgot to loosen the tension using the water pump. When I tried to install the new...


Yes,there is a special wrench that fits the water pump. You have to loosen bolts on pump and put wrench on pump and turn pump to get belt on. Then tighten pump till marks line up on tensioner,then tighten the pump back down. Be sure to roll the engine around twice and recheck timing marks on crank and cams.

Did you remember to reconnect your Cam Position Sensor after putting it all back together? One tooth off shouldn't have bent a valve (but pressure checking cylinder will answer that). Did you check TDC once the belt is tight?

1.8 turbo 2001 jetta -- car turns over, serpentine belt rotates but the timing belt does not. timing belt, water pump,not sure what is going on


Here's a link on how to replace the timing chain. The only thing i can think of is to make sure the chain is properly tensioned and sitting right on the crank pulley since that's what drives it. Since it's not turning make sure your water pump is not seized, turn it by hand to make sure it's ok and also re-check the timing marks on your camshaft pulley. Be careful you don't want to bend any valves so make sure the camshaft timing marks are correct and make sure the number one cylinder is all the way up on the compression stroke. Anyways, here's a link with detailed instructions. Just copy and paste

My 1995 Volvo 850 will not start. I think it is the fuel pump. I tryed a procedure where I removed the fuel pump relay and jumpered the sockets for blades 85 and 15. there was no help in starting the car...


another way to test it
unplug any fuel line you can locate tell a friend to start key one turn only if the line squirts fuel then pump is working and it might need regulator
if not then pump is gone

Timing belt is missing teeth


The belt has stretched causing the belt to jump timing. When you have a belt to jump a gear or pulley it causes more force on the teeth, breaking them off. That's a lot of torque when an engine turns over and the belt is stretched. It doesn't take much for them to break off, you're lucky the belt didn't break apart, it could have been a bigger mess with valves and head problems. Some belts should be changed every 100,000 miles, some say less. Good Luck.

Could it be timing belt or fuel pump


you just answered your own question, turns over fast means no compression, from what you say the timing belt gave out

95 toyota camry died and turns over but wont crank


If your timing belt broke while driving, there WILL be engine damage. Valves will not be moving in response to your pistons continuing to move. I hope that it is not your timing belt. Check your ignition module, first, that's easier.

Hope this helps!

Car turns slowly but just wont start


Starter turning slowly sounds like:

- bad starter, or
- bad connection to starter, or
- bad connection(s) on starter relay, or
- low charge on battery, and
- and maybe some others... but these are most likely
