Based on the mileage it is about time to change the timing belt. this should be done by a professional or someone with internal engine expertise. it is nothing like changing a fan belt.

I have to replace my water pump on a 1997 nissan terrano (pathfinder) 3.2 deisel turbo, does anyone have a diagram to help me before i start to pull it to pieces?


You really should have the repair manual to your Terrano(Pathfinder). I recently had to replace my water pump on my 89 Pathfinder, so I went on youtube and watched videos pertaining to the task and took their advise.
It is an easy job, however you should replace the timing belt and thermostat when you do the water pump, The tensioner should be replaced too. Their are certain orders and torch specs to loosen or tighten bolts so You really need the manual. Plus if yours is like mine if you dont get the timing on right then you risk messing up the motor. Hope this helped you out.

How big of a job is it to replace the cervitine belt on a 1996 olsmoile achivea 3.1 v6 engine


Shouldn't be too bad.
The serpentine belt has a spring loaded tensioner you have to move to make the belt loose. Make sure you have a sticker on the hood or engine that shows the layout of the belt, or draw a picture of it before you take it off.

Im replacing the water pump, timming belt on my 1996 audi a4 v6 2.8, they told me i need an idler roller and a tetioner roller, are those two the same thing? also what is a relay roller?


The idler pulley and the tensioner pulley are different. You will need special tools to do this job. I just completed doing the timing belt on my own 96 Audi A4 Quattro.Do you have a service manual for your car as this will help you alot. The tools you need are listed in the service manual with complete directions to complete the job. There are complete timing belt kits available that include the tools needed. The reason they recommend changing all the components is because it is often one of the components that fails that causes the timing belt to break.

If you have the 3.0 V6 there is a good chance you have bent valves too. I am in the process of fixing mine with the same problem. It's a big job.

Kia Rio died in traffic. Will not start.


Hello Kia Owner,
Regarding the shut down, when was the last time you changed the timing belt?? Did you know that the twin cam 1.5 lirte motor needs a new belt every 50,000 miles or 80,000 kms.
If the belt has failed it may still be in tact but with the cogs ripped off.
Your valves have collided with at least one piston but it is good you were only idling at the time.
The motor may be worth fixing. I just fixed mine myself. I had to lift the engine after removing the axles. I removed the old timing belt and removed and rebuilt the cylinder head(big job). Two exhaust valves were boken right off and lying inside one cylinder.
Most likely your timing belt failed as well.

Water pump mx6


Buy a service manual, I just finished working on mine, it's a big job. You need to remove pass front wheel, plastic cover behind it, 2 belts of the pass side of the motor, motor mount, crankshaft pulley, timing belt covers, timing belt/tensioner, at this point you might be able to get to the water pump. Now get ready for the fun part of putting it all back on without making a mistake and destroying your engine. You can not get this done without a service manual. I know what I'm doing, and I probably could not do this without a book.
