Only way to check yours LT 55 timing belts is to open the engine cover inside the cab,remove timing belt covers-because they are two-one is on a front of the engine another is for injector pump at the back of the engine.Just take a look at the timing belts.There is manufacturer mark.They must be brand new.If it is necessary just turn the engine even you can start.

How do i change a alternator for a escort van 1.8 diesel van

This is for a 1999 1.8 Diesel 55 Escort Van.

You have to remove a few parts but its not a major dilema. Almost all work needs to be carried out from under the van, so it needs jacking up.

1. Disconnect battery. Loosen bolts on FR wheel, jack up high and take wheel off. MAKE SURE HANDBRAKE IS ON AND WORKING!!!

2. Inside the wheel arch is a cover that goes over the alternator, three bolts to remove.

3. From under the van you will see a tension wheel keeping the belt tight. It requires a star shaped fitting to loosen, if you dont have one you can use a small ratchet piece that grips it.

4. Once belt is loose remove the two nuts holding the tension wheel in place. Keep to one side and remember how it goes back.

5. You now have access to the three bolts holding the alternator in place. Its tight and a little tricky but persevere and they will come out.

6. Wiggle the old unit out, unbolt the two wires on the alternator, bolt back onto the new unit.

7. Do the rest in reverse. When putting tension back on the belt do not over tighten, belt should just feel firm.

Remember to connect the battery again! And use a volt meter to test battery. You should get around 14v with engine running.

In addition to the blue smoke

A Honda is always worth servicing. The only time that you need to change the timing belt is if it breaks or the vehicle is almost at 200,000 miles on it. The blue smoke is a little worry some. But Honda's run forever and I feel like you should keep it
