SOURCE: how do you release the tensioner to fit new timing belt

First thing to do is remove the idler pulley, then remove the tensioner if it is still hard to remove the belt. It should slip on freely. If it has a mechanical tensioner, you will have to put it in a vise and gently compress the rod back into the tensioner. You will notice a small hole in the rod, and the housing of the tensioner. Take a thin metal paper clip, and inser the wire into the hole while it is compressed. Then remove from the vice. Install the tensioner, then the belt, and lastly the idler pully. Make sure the timing marks are lined up as this is an interferance motor. Remove the paper clip.

SOURCE: Timing Belt Tensioner bolt broken off.

if this happened you bent the valves in the engine and the cylinder head must be removed, here are full instructions for a timing belt replacement.

Required tools:
13mm open end wrench 10mm shallow and deep socket 8mm socket long flathead screwdriver 17mm deep socket T50 torx socket 1/4", 3/8ths and 1/2" ratchets and extensions E10 inverted torx sockets 6mm Allen wrench 15mm open end wrench 7mm socket 12mm open end wrench 14mm socket 12mm socket 8mm, 9mm and 10mm Allen head sockets 19mm socket pry bar needle nose pliers
If you are doing this because your timing belt broke you will also need to buy a complete cylinder head, head gasket set, and both idler pulleys. ALL DAEWOO MODELS WILL BREAK THE INTAKE AND EXHAUST VALVES WHEN THE TIMING BELT BREAKS.
Start by removing the air cleaner assembly from the throttle body, remove the air filter and housing jack up the vehicle and remove the wheel, remove the plastic shielding in front of the accessory drive belt assembly, remove the accessory drive belt, place a jack with a block of wood on top underneath the engine oil pan remove the front engine mount, remove the crank shaft pulley ( the 4 Allen head bolts only not the 17mm bolt in the center.) remove the metal plate behind the engine mount bracket on the engine, remove the plastic timing belt cover 3 clips on top 2 10mm bolts on bottom. Rotate the engine until the #1 cyl. is at Top Dead Center on the compression stroke or line up the crankshaft timing mark with the mark on the inner timing belt cover ( notch in cover with notch in pulley) on the camshaft pulleys -- ( intake cam line up the line on the pulley with the line on the inner cover)( exhaust cam line up the arrow on the pulley with the arrow on the inner cover) loosen the 13mm bolt in the belt tensioner and using the Allen wrench rotate the tab until there is slack in the belt. Remove the belt. At this time I would recommend you replace the water pump, both plastic idler pulleys as they tend to overheat and lockup, and the belt tensioner. Make sure all your marks are lined up, you may need a helper to hold the Exhaust Cam in place as it tends to move during belt installation. Put the timing belt underneath the crankshaft pulley, install the belt leaving the intake cam for last and NO BELT SLACK on the right side between the crank and the exhaust cam. Once the belt is installed rotate the crankshaft over 2 revolutions and make sure is rotates freely, and your timing marks are aligned perfectly if not the engine will not run properly, tension the belt as needed. Installation is the same as removal.

To clarify, on the DOHC engine, the intake cam gear has a line on it, and the exhaust cam gear has an arrow on it. These should be lined up with the corresponding line and arrow on the VALVE COVER, pointing straight up. I just went through this process over the weekend, and spent quite a bit of time looking for these marking as I had removed the valve cover. Once I found them, it was plain and simple.
In addition, be sure to not over tighten the belt when reinstalling. The tensioner has markings on it for "old" and "new". DO NOT adjust past "new", as the car will sound like a jet engine, and the belt will not last for very long.
One more item that you may as well replace while you are in there is the cam position sensor if you have not already, as there have been issues with them, and the timing housing has to be opened to get to it

SOURCE: i get a fault code 24 what is it telling me is wrong with my car and what does 24 mean in fault codes

P0024 B Camshaft Position - Timing Over-Advanced or System Performance (Bank 2)
It could be a bad cam sensor or maybe the timing chain or belt has jumped a tooth.

The timing chain tensioner is responsible for maintaining cam gear to crank gear syncronization. If the timing belt is loose due to a bad tensioner you could get all three codes and one for no crtk signal. Check belt for any play there should be none.

Airbag error 16

Flash code 16 can have several different possible causes.
It is for the Occupant Classification Sensor (OCS) system, as well as the passenger seat belt tension sensor..

Possible causes"
> OCS module internal fault
> OCS module calibration fault
> OCS module sensing element fault
> OCS module communications fault
> Front passenger belt tension sensor circuit fault
You need to pull Process Identifier (PID) codes to know which area to took for the fault.
Flash code 16 can be broken down into a smaller area of possibility with the PID code "B2290" and the symptom code (xx) following.
> B2290(24)
> B2290(25)
> B2290(26)
> B2290(27)
> B2290(29)
> B2290(31)
Getting a flash code 16 can also be a combination of faults that will show up as combinations of PID codes.

Very low miles 1995 Hyundai ELANTRA 1800 cc 16 dohc. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT frequently comes on. Stop engine, retart after light goes off...sometimes goes for hundred miles and three times new timing belt...

If the timing belt keeps breaking and bending valves, the timing belt and cylinder head repair is not being done correctly. It's as simple as that. Are you changing the tensioner and idler pullies when replacing the belt? Is it timed correctly? Was the timing belt tension adjusted properly? Were the cam journals checked for damage? If not, you are asking for another belt failure.

If you want to know why the check engine light is coming on, you will have to ask your engine computer. Every time the light comes on it is storing a fault code to tell you why. You must scan your engine control module to retrieve the fault code(s) so you can get it properly diagnosed and repaired.

I have changed the camshaft position senson several times on my 05 Neon and now replacing it doesnt do any good. im getting an intermittent camshaft positon circuit error. how do I test the wiring and what...

I never had a problem with the cam sensor in my neon, drove it for 10 years. However, the O2 Sensor fault tends to send a signal that a bad Cam sensor is present and if the timing belt is lose or jumps that will send a false code. The timing belt on these uses a spring tension device in the 2000 to 2003 and a hydraulic tension arm in the 2003 and later models. The hydraulic tension assembly tends to hang and allows the timing to be erratic. Not enough to throw it off all the time, apparently when the belt pops it comes free, but that is all it takes to through the cam timing off and that causes the computer to send a fault signal or random misfire signal. Look at the Timing belt after replacing the O2 sensor if the O2 replacement doesn't resolve the problem.

Lexus Is very particular on thier settings for the timing.It has to be on the mark, with no slack. They will run, But if the belt is not super tight it will throw timing faults. When I do timing jobs I use a pry bar and put as much pressure that I can on the belt tensioner.before I tighten it down. This assures me that the is no slack and actually stretches the belt. very little stretch, but it does. Since I started doing this I haven't had any problems with any timing jobs that I do.
Good luck

Change a water pump and timing belt on my 1994 Elantra after that iam getting rocky starts on mornings and the car is drinking plenty gas. The engine is 2.0 sound like the engine is missing you can hear it...

If your marks are aligned,which they sound like you got them close, Then you will need to apply pressure to the belt tensioner. The tensioners don't always put enough presussre to the belt, thus letting the cam and crank be out of sync, just a hair. But that hair is enough to cause your problems. When you get the tensioner set recheck your marks, they can not be off.

Severe whistling noise at idle,acceleration.

Have the codes read to see if they are related. Make sure the belt is the correct length. Inspect the pulleys and bearings for failure, also you can look at the entire system an see if there is an alignment issue.
