Not to bad a job, the manuals make it sound worse than it is, remove radiator ( better than damaging it ),all the pulleys have timing marks on them that align with marks on heads also the new belt will have marks on also ,which also lineup with marks on the pulleys, if needed this is a good time to replace the camshaft seals ,if the water pump needs replacing then yes its agood time to do it ..

2000 Subaru Outback wont start.. no fuel.


Are your injectors firing into the engine? You can buy a test kit to double check that. Is there spark at the plugs?

I had the same problem sorta with my civic it turns out after doing timing belt water pump, and many gaskets i had a huge vaccum leak.

Also check your fuel lines to see if they are loosing pressure somewhere

When my serpentine belt broke three times the problem was diagnosed as the power steering pump. Why wasn't this diagnosed when the tensioner was replaced. I am now replacing the power steering pump and...


That is a valid question, but you should ask the shop that worked on it. Also do you know that the power steering pump will cure the problem? This remains to be seen....You can check one thing though...Look at the belt/pulley arrangement from the side. any pulley that is not exactly in line with all others, and any wobbling pulley is suspect. Serpentine belts are far less forgiving of these items than were "v" belts.
Good luck
