Looking to purchase a 2003 EX300 with 110,000 miles. The timing belt has not been replaced. What should I do?


Negotiate a price based on having to have the timing belt replaced. Call around you area for estimates to get an idea of the cost. You can probably expect anywhere from $600 to $1000. This option would allow ou to have the work done by a shop that you are familiar with and allow for a warranty on the timing belt. If the seller decides to replace the belt you never know what they had installed or by whom. Warranties typical don't transfer with the sale of an automobile so this might not be a desirable option. I am deffinetely playing devils advocate with the last scenario. The owner could have a quality belt installed by a reputable shop that may cover the work knowing that the car is for sale. The fact is that at some point it needs to be done and wether or not the seller does it does really change anything. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Timing belt diagram for isuzu rodeo 2004 3.2 lite


Here's what pictures I have but as far as installing the belt it is VERY detailed. Not only are you lining makes up on your pully's you also need to put the belt on in a certain way. I don't know if you have the new belt but if you look at it you will see a couple of solid white lines and a doted line as well. These need to be put in a certain place as well. Not only do you line up your pully's you line up the belt as well. If you need step by step instructions, email me at csautomotivecars@att.net and I will send you the instructions and procedures and no there won't be a charge. Don't mind helping but remind me of the make, model, year and engine size of your vehicle if you do write. I hope this helps.

Timing belt broke . installed new one ,now auto back fire's. won't start


Did you get it timed correctly? You don't just replace them like a fan belt, there is a procedure and marks that you line up. Your engine may be a non-interference or interference which means that if your timing belt breaks your pistons may hit your valves and cause major engine damage. Non-interference means that when the belt breaks it won't interfere and cause damage. Interference means that it will. I don't know what engine you have in your car but if you call a dealer and tell them what engine you have in your car they should be able to tell you if it is a non-interference or interference engine.

Installing water pomp


Your water pump is operated y the timing belt, so therefore you have to remove the timing belt to replace the water pump and then retime the motor. If you don"t know how to time the motor you would be better off to take it to a mechanic.

Which direction does the timing belt installs?


You know, I replaced alot of these and seen that on the directions. And yet they do not put a mark on the new belt. I have looked these things over and found know way to tell. So I just put them on. I have never had one come back. May I also recommend that since your already in there, that you replace all the timing components and the water pump too, if it's in there.You don' want to go back in a couple of months from now.
