Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Trying to change belt. Bolt will not come loose. Afraid of stripping. Does this remove by cranking to the right instead of left as is most common? Used extreme pressure and it does not break loose.

Have added length to allen wrench to gain torque, applied lots of pressure with no luck.

Some nuts are left hand thread, and is depending on the direction of travel of the revolving part it is fitted to. The direction of travel will always tighten the nut. Spray with WD40 and try turning clockwise.

Timing belt replacement mazda 2 0


To start with this engine is an interference fit so ensure that the no 1 piston is on TDC and all the marks line up as you cannot move the crank or cam shaft after you take the belt off.. The m12 bolt Crank shaft bolt will be tensioned to 85 ft /lbs so I suggest a 1/2 inch impact gun will be what you need . It is a standard thread just very tight

Is the crank shaft pulley on a renault 1.5 megane left/ or right hand thread


They'd be right hand threads-regular threads-to loosen, turn counter clockwise. An air impact wrench is best for removing the crank bolt. Or a long breaker bar and socket on the bolt, if you can hold the crankshaft stable so it doesn't turn backward with pressure on the bolt. You can pull the starter off, and wedge a big screwdriver or prybar against the flywheel's ring gear teeth, then turn the bolt with the breaker bar.

What is the posistion for the timing chain for a 1998 acura tl


Curtis: The Acura TL had two different engines in it. Neither used timing chains.
Settings for the timing belts are as follows: this is on the 2.5 liter.
Before you pull it apart, break the front crank pulley bolt loose.
Line up the white mark on the pulley with the pointer on lower cover.
Berfore you pull the crank pulley, break the cam bolt loose.
Recheck the crank pulley marks with pointer. Remove the obvious to gain access to the timing covers.
NOTE, if you look at the cam gear will have the word "up" should be on the up side. There should be notches cut on opposite sides of the gear which should line up perfectly with the timing cover... You should have a timing belt tensioner still in place before, when you do your initial check.
After you remove the crank pulley and the timing cover, the woodruff key should be at 12:00 PM
You will also see if you look closer, at the gear. a punch mark, above the woodruff kny. There is an arroe cast into the block. This assures you that you have maintained alignment.

On the 3.2 V-6 same scenario. Remove all the **** surrounding your access to the timing covers and belt. After getting the front crank bolt loose, realign the timing marks to bring it to TDC (Woodruff key @ 12:00 PM) In changing the timing belt on this engine, remove the belt tensioner and you should be able to install the belt without removing the gears.
The right (passengers side) cam gear has a notch cut in the outside edge of the gear. There should be an alignment mark just behind it if you have it set fairly close.The drivers side should be the same.On both engines, make sure when you install the belt, the drivers side is ligned up perfectly and the belt is tight between the left side of the sprocket and the crank gear. Run the belt over to the other cam, making sure the cam is still ligned up. the belt without the tensioner will be real sloppy. Get a small clamp you can place to hold the belt in place on the right cam until you have the tensioner in place.
In checking on both of these engines, they are not intereference fit motors, in short, they are not prone to bending valves. Good luck.

How do you change the crank shaft pulley?


If you have the 3.5l engine, and you don't remove the right side engine cradle bolts, you will not have enough room and will strip out the bolt when you go to put it back in. There is only one belt. There is not a woodruff key on that engine, and the pulley can go back on any which way.

Trying to remove crankshaft hub in order to change timing belt. I'm thinking its reverse thread but it needs to be kept from turning the belt in the process. Any ideas? 94 Ford Ranger


Hi:
The bolt is a normal, right hand thread, and it is tough to keep the engine from turning while you brake it loose. There are several methods, but I have used a chain wrench on the hub, and I protect the hub with an old section of belt,

How do I loosen the bolt on crank shaft?


Hi Manuel

The bolt comes off, in an anti clockwise direction.

I normally put a socket on an extension bar, with metal tube, to extend the length, on to the crank pulley bolt.

Secure under the vehicle with wooden block, and spin he starter, this will loosen it off no problem.

But this procedure must be carried out, before the cam belt timing is disturbed.

Airgun can be used to replace the bolt.

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be Nice......Thank you ! John.

Timing belt


Remove one of the spark plugs, it doesn't matter which one. Make sure the piston is down. Use a screw driver or something in the hole to make sure the piston is in the "down" position. Get some rope that fits into the hole and stuff as much of it as you can into the hole. This rope is now a piston stop. Rotate the engine as you're trying to remove the balancer bolt and the crank should stop when the piston has wedged the rope against the head. At this point, you should be able to break the bolt loose. After the bolt is broken loose, rotate the engine clockwise again far enough to remove the rope. Don't worry, nothing will get hurt.
