The thicker negative wire should go to the engine for a ground. You should be able to move the wire around to different points on the engine and you should find where it broke off of the end terminal.

Does the car seem to be "turning over" slower than normal?

The haynes book is not recommended since there are numerous mistakes and they still will not update. One of the biggest is the firing order.

The factory service manual is the only way to go.

Head bolts - 46 - 50.5 lbs (there is an order sequence for the bolts)

Intake & exhuast manifolds- 13.5 - 20 lbs

Flywheel - 41.5 - 47 lbs

Clutch cover - 13.5 - 20 lbs

SOURCE: Hi, I need to replace the timing belt on my

Here is the easy one. .When you are ready to do it.
1- Take out all Spark plugs so you can turn the crank shaft easily to allign Crank shaft mark hole with the 0 timing mark as well as the cam shaft mark with the V mark. This is to ensure you are at Top Dead Center.
2- Put in a screw driver at cylinder # 1 to make tuoch the top of the piston to make sure it is at the top of the compression. After confirmation pull out the screw driver.
3- Keep everything in the same place, so it make it easier for you to look for the valve position associated with Piston position....
4- Start to take out the old timing belt.
5- If you use any force to losen up the Crank shaft bolt, make sure allign the mark back to the ark before completely remove the crank shaft bolt so you don't miss the Top Dead Center mark later with the new time ming belt.
6- Put in the timing belt, make sure all mark are not moving.
7- Put back everything plus spark plugs.
8- You are done.
Good luck.

Water on spark plugs on starting is it a blown gasket


not necessarily
have a compression test done first to eliminate the gasket
other points are: - the inlet manifold v motors use a passage in the inlet manifold to cross water between the heads at the back
if your motor is a v motor (not included in the question ) then there could be a corrosion hole in the manifold letting water in to the combustion chamber
corrosion in the head that is allowing water to the inlet manifold --won't show up in a compression test as it will be on the inlet side of the valves
any problems such as a blown head gasket , cracked head or corrosion in the combustion chamber will result in overheating of the engine so the problem ( if the compression test is good ) will be corrosion in a part that is connected to the inlet manifold such as a EGR valve

1995 chevy blazer fouling on number 2 cylinder


with this issue , fouling can mean many things, i,ll assume, & i don,t like assuing at all, ? i,ll assume you mean missfiring inderperforming two different issues, two answers, (1) missfiring ,ok change all plugs and remove and overhaul number two injector, replace it,, (2) fouling,? under performing, this can have a few causes i,ll list all, pressure loss in cylinder due to either worn piston rings or valve seatings, or head gasket,?(a) piston rings, luckily this is probably not the problem as usually all 6 cylinders would be effected, (b) valve seatings , hope its not this as it,s a major opperation involving removing the cylinder head an totally reconditoning it, all valves cleaning and reseating, replacing vavle seals , new head gasket ,inlet manifold gaket , exhaust manifold gasket, a good mechanic can get away with changing only the head gasket, but that ain.t you,unfortunatly, so hope its (a) peter.

What's the difference between a blown head gasket and a blown intake gasket?


The head gasket goes between the block and the head, and seals the combustion process, and cooling water, and (if oil is pumped obove the heads to valve components) oil pressure.

Intake gaskets seal between the intake manifold and the head, and seal against intake vacuum, and in many cases, coolant.

A badly blown head gasket will so destroy compression in the cylinder that you can hear uneven cranking as that cylinder comes up on compression, kind of a “whir, whir, WHIR, whir, whir, WHIR, whir” with the capitalized whir being the engine spinning much faster due to no compression holding the starter back.

You will never be able to hear a problem with an intake manifold gasket until the engine actually starts to fire and/or run.

New head plugs and wires coil packs missing on #1 & #2 cyl


hi from uk i assume you have done all the above work correctly? and the leads from coils are correct firing order 1 3 4 2 ? CAMBELTtiming set correctly etc as you say this has happened since cyl head renewed and miss fire is on Nos 1+2 cyl's this normally suggest now after all work u have done and assume compressions are ok ? i had such a fault on a customers mini some years ago who had done exact type of job as you described this fault turned out to be the inlet manifold gasket had split between cyls inlet ports and resulted in missfire on 2 cyls adjoining on removal of manifold the gasket had been damaged whilst reassembling new gasket cured missfire which had caused weak mixtur on both cyls ie on induction more air being drawn via cracked gasket on each cyl and as your engine if injection same problem?? might be worth checking?? hope this throws some light on the problem?

Timing belt snapped


hi from uk the cambelt timing marks for accent 1.3/1.5 petrol are as follows= the cam cog has a hole drilling between the outer toothed and the central securing bolt this hole at TDC number 1 cyl is at top central and lines up with a V cut in the cyl head at rear of cog ? the crank cog at TDC number 1 cyl is a pop mark on both the cog and on thefront face of engine quite noticable ! these line up and are at approx 12 -30 pm when viewed fit new belt from crankcog in anticlockwise ie crank then cam then tensioner HOWEVER! if you are considering just replacing belt and tensioner ? be warned this engine is an interferance engine that is to say if belt fails whilst driving there may/will most probably be damage to the valves (bent) due to contact with pistons so would advise caution and suggest compression test all cyls after fitting new belt and tensioner and before rebuild completely once valves have bent they will not contact pistons again but you will have serious missfire/s and probably back fire up inlet manifold coupled with failing to start if engine is high milage ? consider removal of cyl head and check? de coke and replace damaged or best all valves then engine will have improved performance and more milesin future hope this helps

Just put new spark plugs in 97 buick lasabre. Car now starts and runs, but is blowing out white smoke. Is this blown head gaskets? Does it have anything to do with the fuel pump put on 3 weeks ago?


these cars have issues with coolent getting into the intake... headgaskets are not one of the issues . check plugs for coolent. upper plastic intake has coolent flow in to chambers if u will, and over time they get micro cracks and brittle ...lower intake manifold gaskets are plastic also. ..cyl. heads are cast iron not alluminum . lower intake manifold is alluminum and upper intake is plastic .. on my lesabre a plastic 90 degree elbow connected to the lower intake manifold to the heater hose housing. the belt tensioner is connected to this housing im refering to. not saying for sure, but if it is this is usually why...
