    Your fan belt or your timing belt?

  • Jaymes Nelson May 11, 2010

    This really depends on the motor, but most Saturns either have an auto tensioner, or an adjustable tensioner. I'd need you to look at the pulleys and look for a spring type auto tensioner.

Put a wrench on the center bolt ofthe tensioner pulley. With one hand, rotate the wrench to move the tensioner pulley. With the other hand, remove the belt from another pulley. Carefully release the tensioner pulley and work the belt off the rest of the pulleys. Folly a similar procedure to install the new belt.

2002 Mitsubishi Galant - When I should change the Timing belt ?


Timing belts should be changed at around 60,000 miles on engines with timing belts-especially on 'interference engines', which are engines that, when the belt breaks while the engine is running, will at least damage the valves and sometimes even pistons. You do not say what engine or model car your Mitsubishi engine is, but most Mitsubishi engines are interference engines. Better safe than sorry.

I have 140K on by 2002 S60 what service should I complete. Did big service at 75K, timing belt never changed. What do you recommend?


You should have changed the Timing Belt at 60K niles, by not changing the Timing Belt you are taking a serious gamble on the Belt breaking on you at anytime, leaving you stranded and costing you thousands of dollars in engine repairs. If your car runs fine, No Check Engine Lights, I would just do your regular engine oil changes, flush Radiator, Change Transmission Fluid and Filter, but change the Timing Belt ASAP.

Does my Civic have a timing chain or a timing belt


It has a timing belt. Recommended to be replace every 105,000 miles, timing belt also run's your water pump good idea to also replace, your engine is also an INTERFERENCE ENGINE which will damage your cylinder head valve's if timing belt goes bad. Hope this was very helpful.

200,000-300,000 miles if you keep up with oil changes and belt changes especially the timing belt this is usually the most important belt if it brakes you'll need a new engine. Change this belt around 80-100,000 miles.

Does the nissan quest 1999 timing belt needs to be


The Quest has a non interference engine meaning that should the belt break the engine would just die without breaking anything. Nissan recommends 105K for changing but that depends on the way the vehicle was driven (driving habits), road conditions etc. If driving on roads for e.g. that are hilly, it labors the engine more thus shortens the lifespan of the belt according to mfg.

Unknown millage on timing belt 152000


The interval for replacement is 60,000 miles on that model.
If you do not know the last time it was changed, it would be a good idea to do it so you do not risk getting stranded.

The engine is NOT an interference engine, so the engine will not be damaged if the belt breaks; you will just need a tow truck to get it somewhere to install a new belt.

Fig. 4: Timing belt arrangement engine

BMW recommends that the timing belt be changed every second Inspection ii, or every 4 years on cars that have low mileage. Most of the rest of the industry has timing belt changing intervals ranging from 40,000 miles to 60,000 miles. It is better to change the belt at a lower mileage than at a higher number.
The timing belt must be replaced every time the belt tensioner is loosened. Do not reinstall a used belt. Reusing a timing belt, even one with low mileage, is not worth the chance of having a belt break and damaging the engine.

Good luck.

Timing Belt


IT should have been changed when the engine was rebuilt. You change them out every 105,000 miles so I would call the place that rebuilt your engine and ask them if they replaced the timing belt or look on your receipt. But when you rebuild a engine the timing belt should ALWAYS be replaced. If this helped please rate.
