It does sound like the eng. is locked up. You might try removing the starter and check to see if the engine will turn over with the starter off. I have seen the starter drive get stuck. Just reinstall the starter if the crank turns and it should be OK. It worked for me...

Fig. Fig. 4: Proper camshaft sprocket alignment for timing belt installation

  1. Install the crankshaft sprocket. Set the crankshaft sprocket to Top Dead Center (TDC) by aligning the notch on the sprocket with the arrow on the oil pump housing.
  2. Set the camshafts to align the timing marks on the sprockets.
  3. Move the crankshaft to 1 / 2 notch before TDC.
  4. Install the timing belt starting at the crankshaft, then around the water pump sprocket, idler pulley, camshaft sprockets, and then around the tensioner pulley.
  5. Move the crankshaft sprocket to TDC to take up the belt slack.
  6. Install the tensioner to the engine block, but do not tighten.
  7. Using a torque wrench on the tensioner pulley apply 250 inch lbs. (28 Nm) of tighten to the tensioner pulley.
  8. With torque being applied to the tensioner pulley, move the tensioner up against the tensioner pulley bracket and tighten the fasteners to 275 inch lbs. (31 Nm).
  9. Remove the tensioner plunger pin. The tension is correct when the plunger pin can be removed and replaced easily.
  10. Rotate the crankshaft 2 revolutions and recheck the timing marks. Wait several minutes and then recheck that the plunger pin can easily be removed and installed.
  11. Reinstall the front timing belt cover(s).
  12. Reinstall the engine mount bracket.
  13. Reinstall the right engine mount.
  14. Remove the floor jack from under the vehicle.
  15. Install the crankshaft damper and tighten to 105 ft. lbs. (142 Nm).
  16. Install the accessory drive belts and adjust to the proper tension.
  17. Install the right inner splash shield.
  18. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  19. Check for leaks and proper engine operation.

Battery and brake light on.steering difficult


Sounds like your serpentine belt broke, if you look under the hood and it broke it won't be there,it runs the alternator pulley (battery light), power steering pump pulley (difficult steering), a/c compressor pulley, it is driven by the crankshaft pulley and around a tensioner pulley. You can pick one up anywhere for around 20 bucks and all you need to install it is a I believe a 14mm or 15mm socket or wrench to move the tensioner, the belt routing is usually pictured under the hood somewhere.

4cyl 2000 honda accord engine stalls while idling, recently died and will only start for short periods... possible problems/solutions?


check for spark and fuel after it dies.

If there is spark but no fuel, then the fuel pump may be bad or a clogged fuel filter.

If there is fuel but not spark, then the ignition control module or the ignition coil could be bad.

Also, check that the timing belt is timing the engine correctly.

Need 2 replace fan belt for mazda 323f 1998


The belt runs on a number of pulleys. One of which is the bottom one, called the crankshaft pulley. This is the one rotating when engine runs, driving the other pulleys with the belt. The crankshaft pulley is not adjustable, so you need to follow the path of the belt around the other pulleys. One of these will be attached to some accessory like an alternator or a water or steering pump. If there is no independent tensioner pulley, one of these accessories will have some sort of tensioning device. Could be a slotted bracket, or a long tensioner bolt that moves the accessory up or down, thereby tightening or loosening the belt tension. When you see which one it is, loosen attaching bolts for that one, and adjust accordingly. TT
