You sould replace the belt along with the timing belt. If it gets caught in the timing belt you will have MAJOR EGINE DAMAGE!

you should be able to turn it by hand or with a socket and ratchet broken crank means broken car if you broke crank which is rare you would not have a running engine sounds more like stretched timing chain if it feels sloppy

My acura is making loud banging noise from front when idling. sounds like a missing spark plug but all spark plugs are fine. what could it be?


Can be a lot of things.

Could be a bad rod or rod barring.

Could be a clearance issue in a rebuilt engine.

I wouldn't run it until you Take it to a shop for diagnostic.

99 trooper 3.5 v6 , believe balancer pulley sheared the key.pulley is wobbling and motor knocking like rod knock.is this a zero tolerance engine and are they known for this problem.sounds like motor is out...


IT is a zero tolerance engine which means that if you break a timing belt there will be valve damage. Check the harmonic balancer and if there is a rubber insert between the pulley and the crank shaft hub then replace the harmonic balancer as this rubber has failed and the pulley will fall off. If the key has sheared as you suspect there would be no engine noise as the engine would not be running. Fix the balancer first then check for the noise as it may be just the balancer

I think you had better have a local shop inspect this for a failed engine connecting rod.

Hyundai Balance Shaft Bearing making noise?


Possible. It's hard to give you an accurate cause, since I'm not able
to hear the sound. Most of the time, when you hear a slight wrapping
sound, it's a rod bearing,or crank bearing. When the rod bearing goes,
you'll know it,since it will knock like an SOB.

4.3 vortec engine , engine noise, knocking or tapping on top of engine, not when cold , but starts noise when it heats up, and gets louder as it gets hotter and hotter!!! Sounds like noise is in the center...


The knocking or ticking is going to determine if it is in the top end, lifters, push-rod or rocker arm issue or the bottom end that would include pistons or bearings.
If it is a ticking noise, it will more than likely be a valve train issue.
If a knocking noise, piston or crankshaft related problem.

Attached is a web site that you can listen to a piston slap which is a known issue for your 4.3.
Listen to the noise and see if it sounds similar to your problem. A piston slap will generally sound as though it is coming from the central area of the engine.
Listen to the recording and let me know.

Mazda MPV V6 engine noise


My strong guess without looking at it would be a cracked exhaust manifold, when it gets hot the metal expands an it doesn't leak.

Engine knocking on a 1995 mitsubishi montero


I use 6 to 6.5 litres in my 2800 (non-turbo) engine. Six litres is safe.

The loud noise: Careful please. I have had a big-end (the bottom of a connecting rod) come off while driving - Of course you loose one cyllinder's power and the noise is very bad. Also damages the crank shaft. If the noise does not go away by adjusting the oil level, have the engine checked immediately.
