Do you mean the alternator, Power Steering, etc. belts external to the engine (Not including any timing belts if there are any)?

Only have to time if the timing belt or chain is changed do you have to time it.

How do i change a timing belt on a 2005 chrysler sebring 2.4L 4CYL DOHC


Timing belts are rather tricky to replace as they often require special tools to remove/tension the timing belt. Also, your car has an interference engine, meaning that if you make a mistake and accidentally move the cam/crankshaft relationship, you can damage the engine internally. Also, if the belt has broken or jumped time, simple replacement may not be adequate, as valve and/or piston damage may well have occurred. Since you are trying to do this yourself, you are obviously trying to do this "on the cheap". All well and good, but be advised that unless you want to do the job again in a few months, you should replace the water pump and the timing belt tensioner at the same time you replace the belt as they almost always fail shortly after belt replacement alone. You can get the step-by step procedures to do the job from the AUTOZONE website. You simple need to register an account to access the REPAIR HELP area. Once you select you car and engine (ensure VIN letter matches as there are two 2.4L DOHC engines that year), go to REPAIR HELP, then VEHICLE REPAIR GUIDES, THEN ENGINE MECHANICAL, THEN TIMING BELT. Read over the entire procedure area first,as they usually cover all engine types in the same procedure. That way you ensure you are only doing the steps pertinent to your vehicle.

Why is my new mechanic insisting that i change timing belt and tensioner at the same time. can some body tell me why


A tensioner will generally outlast only one timing belt, Longa, and it's a lot cheaper (for YOU) to change both at the same time than it is to open the engine twice - once for the belt, and again later for the tensioner.

How to change a timing belt with a 2.4ltr motor?


Lift the car on lift and remove right tire . Remove front engine mount on the timing cover. Remove timing cover. Align the top timing mark on camshaft to the mark on back cover. Crankshaft will align automatically. Lose the belt tensioner and remove the belt.
I will suggest to replace the water pump and the seal on the camshaft and crankshaft. Install the belt and turn by hand crankshaft twice. make sure the marks align again. Install the cover, mount,serpentine belt.refill coolant. Bleed the system and run the engine till warm and radiator fan start. Cool and check the coolant level again.
good luck

When shou;d the timing belt be replaced


The manufacturer recommends replacement of the timing belt at 105,000 miles.

Due to the high mileage interval and the large amount of labor involved, I highly recommend that when you replace the timing belt, also replace the timing belt component kit and the water pump.

The timing belt component kit consists of the timing belt idler and tensioner pullies. The water pump is also driven by the timing belt. The failure of any one of these components will cause you to have to perform (and/or pay for) the same labor all over again because they will cause the new timing belt to come off.

If you call a shop for an estimate of the cost for replacing your timing belt, make sure they include these items in the estimate. I have seen many shops that will quote you the price of replacing only the belt. This way they will look a lot cheaper than the honest shops that quote the entire job the first time. (Then when you are in the shop and they have your engine torn apart, they hit you with the rest of the story.)

ALSO NOTE: The parts stores and the automotive information system that I use professionally, do not list the 2.5L engine as an interference engine, But I can tell you from experience that they have been known to bend valves if the timing belt breaks or comes off while the engine is running. (that is what an interference engine does) Another HUGE reason to protect your investment by replacing all of the components listed above.

After how many miles should the timing belt be changed


The timing belt replacement interval for your 3.5L engine is every 120,000 miles. I would also replace the water pump, the tensioner and idler pullies, and the cam and crankshaft front seals at the same time. All of these components will also have 120,000 miles on them and they will not last another 120K. Failure of any of these components will result in the timing belt having to be replaced again and/or severe engine damage.

After replacing my timing belt on a 2001 civic 1.7 the engine is pinging.how do i adjust the timing


It sounds like the timing belt may be off a tooth. It is very common when replacing timing belt to not have all the slack on the same side as the tensioner.It is always recomended after setting tensioner to rotate the engine by hand two revolutions and recheck timing marks.

How do I repair a broken timing belt?


This is a questioin with a few diffferent answers, but I will try to include as much info as possible.....you did not state which make.model or engine type you have...so the first and main thing to work out is ---- is this engine an interference type ??? this is to work out if the timing belt broke, would the valves hit pistons......if yes, then you might be loking at an enigne overhaul and repair $$$$$$$$......but if not, you might get anway with just replacing the timing belt......

If just replacing timing belt...again you ned to make sure you have capable and comprehensive instructions to set the belt up properly...the reason it is called a timing belt, is that it goverbs the timing of the pistons (crankshaft) according to the valve opening (camshaft) and spark timing.....get this wrong and the engine will not start/run or be efficient as it once was.......

First things first......work out what engine you have, and if it is just a timing belt replacement...and then go from there

2002 Mazda Protege timing belt replaced and


Scan PCM for codes. Check that timing is correct again.These DOHC engines are easy to install a tooth out. Start from the top of engine when installing timing belt on this type of engine it's the easiest way to do it. If you took CRANKSHAFT pulley apart make sure the pick up ring behind isn't placed in backwards.
