Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

Sounds like the timing belt was not installed correctly. Probably off by more than 3 tooth from the cam gear... I've had similar problems before...

Timing chain installation


1996-1999 Toyota Corolla valve timing:
It is very easy to install the timing belt on 1997 Toyota Corolla. Do the following:
- Mark the numbers 1,2 and 3 on the spark plug wires with permanent marker or nail polish and remain the 4th one unmarked. This is necessary so that you can easily remember the spark plug wires order later on their original position.
- Remove the spark plugs so that the engine can easily be rotated.
- Rotate the crankshaft clockwise to align the v- groove mark on the crankshaft pulley with the 0 mark on the timing belt cover. If these marks are aligned the piston is always on the Top Dead Position (TDC).
25502648-okm0ksuj3f3lm2ubjq0dkjux-5-0.jpg

- To replace the timing belt remove the crankshaft pulley, upper and lower timing covers.
- Temporarily screw in the crankshaft bolt in its place to rotate the crankshaft with the spanner and align the v- groove of lower crankshaft gear with the index mark on the oil pump cover as shown in the following diagram.
- Inspect the cam shaft mark through the small hole on the cam shaft sprocket. The punch mark should be exactly behind the hole on the cam shaft sprocket as shown in the following diagram.


25502648-okm0ksuj3f3lm2ubjq0dkjux-5-2.jpg
- Loosen the timing bearing bolt, press the bearing forcefully against the spring with some suitable tool and lock it there temporarily.
- Remove the timing belt.
- Remove the timing bearing.
- Replace the new timing belt and bearing with the original.
- Install in the reverse order of dis-assembly.
NOTE: NEVER PUT EXTRA FORCE ON TIMING BEARING TO ADJUST THE TIMING BELT TENSION. JUST LOOSEN THE TIMING BEARING BOLT AND THE SPRING ATTACHED TO IT WILL PULL THE BEARING IT SELF WITH THE PRESET TENSION TO ADJUST THE TIMING BELT.
Thank you for visiting Fixya.

Need instructions to replace timing belt on a 1995 diesel ford courier


Hi,
REMOVAL
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove accessory drive belt.
Remove the timing belt cover.
Align the timing mark on the camshaft sprocket with the timing mark on the cylinder head.
Confirm that the timing mark on the crankshaft sprocket is aligned with the timing mark on the oil pump housing.
Loosen the belt tensioner attaching bolt.
Pry the tensioner away from the timing belt and tighten the attaching bolt.
Remove the spark plugs.
Remove the RH engine mount and raise the vehicle.
Remove the splash shield.
Remove the crankshaft damper.
Remove the timing belt.

6_13_2012_3_43_16_pm.gif



INSTALLATION


Note: Do not mix 1/2 round and trapazoidal belt tooth profiles. This can cause premature belt wear, also the belt is meant to run in a dry environment. For maximum belt life, no oil or belt dressing compound should be applied to the timing belt.
Install the timing belt over the sprockets in a counterclockwise direction starting at the crankshaft. Keep the belt span from the crankshaft to the camshaft tight while installing over the remaining sprocket.
Loosen the belt tensioner attaching bolt, allowing the tensioner to snap against the belt.
CAUTION: Do not rotate crankshaft with the spark plugs installed .


Note: Do not turn the engine counterclockwise to line up the timing marks. After rotation, recheck camshaft timing marks for alignment. This will verify that the belt has not skipped a tooth during rotation.
Rotate the crankshaft clockwise two complete revolutions (720 degrees) stopping at top dead center. This will allow the tensioner spring to load the timing belt.
Tighten the belt tensioner attaching bolt to 23-30 Nm (17-22 lb-ft) .
Install the crankshaft damper.
Install the splash shield.
Lower the vehicle.
Install the RH engine mount.
Install the spark plugs.
Install the timing belt cover.
Install the accessory drive belt automatic tensioner.
Install the accessory drive belt.
Connect the negative battery cable.


Thank you.

    1. Position the crankshaft just prior to Top Dead Center (TDC).
    2. If not already done, locate and remove the plug bolt by the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor (refer to the illustration) and install the TDC timing peg.
    3. Rotate the crankshaft clockwise against the TDC peg. NOTE: Installation of the alignment tool into the exhaust camshaft may require the camshafts to be rotated clockwise.
    4. Install the camshaft alignment tool on the back of the camshafts.

Installed new head gasket, new timing belt, two new valves. drove 5 miles engine stalled. no spark or injector pulse. installed new crank sensor, cam sensor, coilpack, new ECM still wont start


It soundslike your timing belt may have a problem. It may have failed prematurely, thetensioner may have failed, the tensioner pulley or idler pulley may have wornout, or the timing may be incorrectly set. No spark can usually be guaranteed acrank sensor fault, cam sensor fault, or timing fault. If the timing checksout, maybe you got a bad crank sensor or cam sensor, but I am 98% sure it'srelated to timing.

Actually the car was running fine before I change tensioner. I change the tensioner and guide because the tensioner and timing guild make niose when first 10 minute started. But after change tensioner...


Ohhhhhh, sometimes folks get in a hurry changing belts and disconnect the crank sensor. Its sow by the crankshaft pully. It's a plug that came apart.

98Eclipse 2.0 nonTurbo 5speed 180,000 miles ,code PO301


The po301 is a misfire code. The backfire can be caused by a excessive amount of fuel, bad valve timing etc.
My guess is you have damage to an exhaust valve that may have occurred when you had the timing belt problem.A compression test will indicate if you have a leaking exhaust valve.The reason for the backfire is the exhaust valve is still partially open when the spark plug fires.
