Either your idler pulley or tensioner pulley is warn out and causing the belt to not run true or there is something wrong with the belt itself. Does the bottom pulley feel smooth other then the grooves like nothing is down there causing the belt to jump off? And assuming you put the belt back on, you did put it on the way the diagram told you to right?

Vibrating after changing water pump and timing belt

did you put the pump on straight of the pullly or if it has the fan on it is it sitting flat , this would cause this because it is not balancing right when spinning something is off balance

1999 Kia Sportage 4Wd leaking antifreeze, timing belt loose, not turning cam shaft, but not broken. What is causing problem?

If you have antifreeze in ya timing belt cover it can only be one thing. Your water pump seal is going bad. You will not see it if it is not under pressure but it will leak. It's not a bad job to do if you know what ya doing but if you dont it can be a night mare. When you change your water pump change the timing baelt along with it because the antifreeze will rot the belt and it will break. Leaving you beside the road wait for a tow truck.

1987 Ford Econoline motorhome, sometimes key turns and nothing happens but starts fine with jump leads, keep on turning the key and eventually it will start. Can anyone shed any light please

Sure, CLEAN your battery cables - ESPECIALLY the bottoms. The bottoms are exposed to grease, road grime and when covered in "gunk" causes resistance. When you jump start or hit key multiple times, cables heat up and expand making better contact. Advise - clean ALL cable ends

I have a 94 jimmy that keeps loadingup the plugs and jumps timing but the timeing chain is not loose or strechedthe motor is strong but i cant keep it running

If you have a distributor cap with a rotor , it is possible that the gear on the bottom of the distributor is striped. It is driven off a similar gear on the cam shaft.

97 ford windstar, can not get the tentioin pully to lock down...we have belt on right, not sure what is needed to get pullly to adjust properlly on the peg to lock??

Usually a tension pulley does not lock down. They are spring or hydraulic loaded and are supposed to move with the action of the belt. If the tensioner arm is not putting the right amount of tension on the belt, it may be time to replace the tensioner itself
