I assume you replaced the timing belts. You need to double check the timing marks and make sure they are right on. You could be slightly off on the cam timing, or your counter balancer shaft (a separate belt)could be in the wrong position causing more vibration than it is canceling.

check the timing setting as it may be too far advanced ( set at 5 degrees advanced to start) check and adjust the fuel setting of the main jet as it may be too rich at idle.. You state that the flywheel was out of true and with the vibrations I suspect that the crank shaft may be bent. Something that would not normally be checked

2001 estima t idles rough when started


Hi, if it sounds like a tractor and is feeling rough and less powerful than normal, my guese is the timing chain guide (possibly top guide) has come loose. If you can get van over a pit, on jack stands or on hoist and while engine is running, the noise will be louder at front of engine by the timing chain housing, you could also feel the guides rattling, hence the tractor noise. As the engine is revved to higher RPM's the chain vibrates faster and the guide is forced off the chain so the noise lesson's. Parts are available, but before ordering parts you will have to disassemble timing chain housing and check the guide bolt thread on engine side are not threaded, otherwise re-threading the hole and finding the right bolts to fit guide plates can be a nightmare, but you can use helicoil, which expensive but effective. Check also the housing, it may have wear marks due to guides rubbing on it which is not a problem, but as oil circulates through it you wouldnt want it to leak out.
Hope this helps.

2000 Focus Seat Belt Retractor - Pleaes Help


I had the same issue with the rear seat belt. what my solution was taking the plastic cover off the top side that pulls the seat belt back in and notice that on these cars, they actually fold the seat belt at the very end to prevent tearing. therefore the seat belt was folded inside the re-tractor and got stuck. what i did for a solution was twisted the seat belt unfolding it by grabbing the other end behind the re-tractor and now it works. Try not to fully extend it next time...... if that doesn't work go to a junk yard 12 bucks replace the whole seat belt.

When pushing down the pedal, the gears and pto is grinding more and more as time goes by. I adjusted the clutch pedal , but no help. Can this problem be fixed by a shade tree mechanic or do I need to take...


I am not a diesel mechanic, a tractor mechanic, or a shade tree mechanic. But, it sounds to me like it is time for a new clutch pack. Anyone with reasonable knowledge of simple mechanics can do this job at a much cheaper price than a professional diesel or tractor mechanic, but it can be a heavy duty job. I would weigh the differences in downtime of my equipment and the ability of my shade tree mechanic.

Seat belt malfunction


There may be a small object like a coin in the re-tractor, pull the re-tractor and check, if nothing is found you will have to replace the belt assy, they are not repairable.

Seat belt in my tahoe is stuck it wont release how do i fix it?


Check down in the seat belt re-tractor, many times things like pennies get in there and jam it, remove the re-tractor and shake it, if nothing comes out you will have to replace the seat belt, of course I assume you are not talking about the buckle release button being stuck, if so you still will need to check it for foreign objects.
