The ticking sound is probably an out of adjustment valve.This can cause performance problems if it is severe enough. Go to for step by step instructions w/ detailed photographs for this repair. The timing belt is one of those type of things that works 100% or not at all. At 126,000 miles I recommend having the belt(s) replaced. It is fairly inexpensive to have done and will extend the life of your vehicle 2 fold. If you belt fails it will probably destroy your motor so it is money well spent. Good Luck!!!

SOURCE: 93 dodge spirit engine noise

Remove the drive belts, then spin each pulley by hand. You should find one that feels wobbly or rough. This is the component that is most likely causing your chirp. Usually it is either the water pump or an idler pulley. DO NOT run the engine with the belts removed- the engine will overheated and severely damaged!

What is the growling noise coming from my 94 civic motor

Water pump or pulley most likely.

Always replace water pump and pulleys when you do the timing belt.

Also you may have overtightened the belt.

NOTE, Kevlar belts will make a "whirring" noise for a few thousand miles after replacement, but not a growling.

I've got a BMW 1 series, it went into the garage for a new timer belt, the tensioner had snapped, when I got it back there is a ticking noise when first starting up and until the engine gets w

The timing belt is crucial. And a broken belt can cause bent valves and serious engine damage. Since you state that the belt tensioner was replaced, was the timing belt replaced as well? I assume you have a warranty, and I highly recommend you use it. A new noise coming from where a major repair was just completed is never a good sign.

Engine diagrams free

my guess, you changed it and guessed at the timing?
the G16 engines time to #4 firing. not #1. sorry, tis a fact
8v or 16v., they time different (tension steps are diffr)
how to do it and every way to undo , all the wrong ways.

Car wont start

sounds like the timing belt has gone would not keep trying to start engine if this is the case and it will cost you more to fix. it may have striped a cog on the belt or the adjuster has given up the goat. clicking and clunk is a most common sound of the belt going. if you have to have the belt changed and the engine runs and is ticking then the valves are bent and you will need to have the head changed or the valves replaced, as over time the valve can snap and then the engine is a gonner.

Im changing the timing belt what is the best to find tdc on the #4 cylinder is the #4 cylinder the closest to the fire wall?

you dont even need to know, for sure, not guessing...!!!
you align the marks by the book and it only goes one way.
#4. is firing and you dont need to know, unless its not.
if not the belt has slipped. or installed wrong.

see the 6 point test. (if 4 point fails)
first all 3 engines. for your year, its 2 .
8v or 16v.

the 6 point way is here (end). if at wits end, this solves them all.
the acid tests.

the 2 extra checks are KEYS.

I have a ACURA 3.5 RL with only 138000 KM and wondering if I should replaced the timing belt and water pump

If you know that the timing belt has not been changed at the regular interval or ever been changed, then YES. Also change the water pump and timing belt tensioners.
Its normal to change every 80,000 - 100,000 km
