Use an impact with sufficient air pressure. If it's still hard, replace all of the belts to increase resistance. If that doesn't work, put a wedge in one of the timing pulleys, making sure not to risk damage (wood would be safer than metal).

You could try putting air into a cylinder, with the adapter
for a compression or leak down gauge,doubt it will work

Make a tool to hold the crank damper with damaging it
or rent one

2004 Pilot timing belt replacement



(for the 105,000 mile timing belt service)

Part List :
-Timing belt: 14400-P8A-A02
-Adjuster automatic (hydraulic tensioner): 14520-P8E-A01
-Adjuster - timing belt: 14510-PGE-A01
-Idler pulley - timing belt: 14550-P8A-A01 (OR) 14550-PGE-A01 (there are 2 numbers listed)
-Alternator/Compressor belt: 38920-P8F-A02
-Power steering belt: 56992-P8A-A01
-O-RING (8.8X1.9): 91302-GE0-000
-Fender trip clips (X7): 91501-S04-003

Special Tools Needed:
Honda Crankshaft Pulley Removal Tool
3/4" breaker bar

Procedure:
-Remove tire and place the Pilot on a jack stand.

-Remove the clips holding the fender liner and lower splash shield in place (x7) and fold them out of the way.

-Make sure the #1 piston is on top dead center using the marks on the crank pulley and lower timing belt cover (19mm in the crank pulley).

-Remove the Alternator-Compressor belt (14mm boxend) & Power Steering belt. (2-12mm and 1-12mm tensioner bolt)

-Loosen the crank pulley. If you have an impact wrench or a long breaker bar it makes it easier to remove the bolt. You will also need a special tool crankshaft pulley holder (50mm) (19mm and special tool).

-Remove the side engine mount bracket (5-14mm bolts).

-Remove the crankshaft pulley.

-Remove the oil dipstick & tube (10mm).

-Remove the front & rear 'upper covers' of the timing belt housing, moving the wire harness out of the way first (5-10mm bolts for each cover).

-Remove the lower cover (7-10mm bolts).

-Remove the engine mount bracket that is bolted to the block (3-14mm bolts).

-Remove the hydraulic tensioner (2-10mm bolts).

-Remove the tensioner pulley (you will reuse the inner sleave) (14mm bolt).

-Remove the idler pulley bolt (14mm bolt with thread locker on it) (I used Loctite 242 during the reinstall because I had it on the shelf).

-Remove the timing belt.

-Before installing a new timing belt, make sure the pulleys, belt guide plate, upper & lower covers are clean and check to see if the crank and cams have rotated (mine did not move).

-The install is the reverse order of removal (make sure you torque everything correctly!)

-The removal of the lock pin in the hydraulic tensioner gave me a little trouble so I used pliers.

-Once the crank pulley is back on, check the lower timing mark (and the cam marks) before the top covers are installed.

How do i remove the timing belt pulley on a mazda 323 200e 8v FE engine please


The timing belt pulley is held on by the Centre crankshaft bolt and slides on with a key way. You may need to use a puller if it is stuck tight.

My wife has a 06 sorento 3.5. The crankshaft bolt broke and I got it out replaced the harmonic balancer, the crank sprocket and the bolt. When I was putting on the new timing belt I rotated the motor by...


I would check the Crankshaft Position Sensor. If any of the blades on the crankshaft sproket were bent the will nick the sensor and throw everything out of wack. Its worth your time to buy a pair of camshaft lock tools. They hold the cams in place while you remove the belt. Also search youtube for sorento 3.5 timing belt. There is a mechanic that reallly knows his stuff and can show you a couple of tricks to make the job a lot easier. Good Luck. Oh and, good job on the crank bolt! Not an easy fix my friend.

How to locate camshaft and crankshaft sensor on a 2.7 motor of a hyndaui sonata 2005


Not a do-it-yourself job, unless you got some time and are pretty confident.

You'll have to dismount the engine from the motor mount on the passenger side. (17mm bolts and nuts)

You'll have to move the power steering lines out of your way.

Remove the crankshaft pulley. (21mm or 22mm Bolt, and some 10mm bolts)

Remove the timing covers (10mm bolts)

Place the engine on TDC for cylinder 1. There are timing marks on the crank you can use. (make sure the ones on the camshafts are on the timing marks as well

Remove the timing belt tensioner

Remove the timing belt

Remove the metal blade and crankshaft position sensor from next to the crankshaft (10mm bolts for the sensor, metal blade just slides over the crankshaft) Replace both of them.

Now, make sure you index the crank pulley correctly, make sure you get the cams and the crank on the timing marks before you put the belt back on. Make sure you rotate the engine by hand for 2 turns of the crank shaft and ensure that the crank and the cams are still on the timing marks.

Put it all back together.

That is a very quick overview of the highlights of the job.

Car died while driving wont start again just wants to backfire


check for timing issue,( belt, chain ) DO NOT sit and crank on motor as if it is the timing belt you can and will cause severe internal valve damage. Backfire is common cause for improper timing. If you turn motor over do it by hand with socket on the crank bolt,you can turn but if you feel resistance other than compression then the piston is hitting valves, its best to do this with spark plugs removed. remove timing belt cover and check idlers,tensioners, sliders for damage or wear.

How do you remove and install a water pump on a 1995 Nissan pathfinder?


big job you will have to remove the timing belt to do it so you might as well change it since you will have it off,but i don' t recommend just any body do it as you will need metric bolt puller set to remove the crank pulley,but mostly you remove the radiator shroud and everything in the way of the plastic belt covers as they have to come off to access belt and water pump.its about four hour job with professional tools.

Need to change timming belt 1997 geo tracker


TIMING BELT CHANGE You should have some mechanical skills before attempting any engine maintenance! These are basic instructions, and you must knoe what you removed, when, and what order so you can reinstall them in order. First, you have to remove everything in the way! You need to remove the Fan, clutch, and shroud, pump pully & drive belts. Next, you need to remove the Crank Pully:

1. Crank Pully Bolt 2. Crank Pully 3. Center Bolt 4. 5mm Hex drive (used to remove pully bolts) Once the fan stuff, and pully(s) are removed, then you need to remove the Timing Belt cover:

Once the cover is removed, you will need to loosen the adjusting nut and pully bolt on the Belt Tensioner:
A. Adjust Nut B. Pully Bolt C. TENSIONER PULLY Once the the Adjust Nut, and Pully bolt are loose, move the pully as far towards the water pump as possible.
Then, you can slip the timing belt from the sprockets. Check the tensioner for roughness and excess play! DO NOT MOVE THE CAM OR CRANK SPROCKETS! IF you do, then you will have to line up the Crank and Cam for piston number one at Top Dead Center before placing the new timing belt on! Note the timing marks on the crank and camshaft sprockets. IF YOU MUST! Allign the Cam and Crank at piston#1, Top Dead Center before removing the belt. Each sprocket has a small hole, with a line through it, and there is a small groove or "V" it alligns with on the engine. Now, once the timing belt is off, look at your new timing belt. Older belts use the Squared off teeth, while new ones have the rounded teeth. Make sure you have the correct belt for your sprockets! Never reinstall a belt that is in questionable condition. BELT WEAR CONDITIONS
If there are Arrows on the belt, they must be pointing to the RIGHT when you put the new belt on the sprockets. If there isn't one, then paint one on, and place the belt back on the sprockets. The arrow will indicate to a mechanic, this is the way the belt must be put back on (if they replace any cam or crank oil seals). Slip the new belt onto the Crank sprocket. While maintaining tension on the side of the belt opposite the tensioner, slip the belt onto the Camshaft sprocket. Releace the Tensioner adjusting nut to allow spring tension against the belt. Temporarily reinstall the crank pully, taking care to align the notch in the pully with the raised area on the sprocket. Rotate the crank clockwise two complete revolutions. Recheck the alignment of the of the valve timing marks. If they do not align properly, loosen the tensioner, slip the belt off the crank pully, align the timing marks, reinstall the belt, and check alignment again. Tighten the tensioner nut, then the bolt. Reinstall all parts removed, in the opposite order, of course. Start the engine and allow to reach normal operating temp, then road test. THEORETICALLY, you should simply be able to replace the belt with the new one, and go, as long as you did not move any of the sprockets when removing or installing the belt. Most people do it this way, and do not test for alignment before replacing everything. When the belt wears, timing will be off, very little, and this is why you check alignment. The belt may have slipped a tooth, making the timing off. This is why the Cam and Crank sprockets must both align properly. An experienced person will do just that: Replace the belt, and go. It really isn't all that hard. It helps to have a second person around with some experience also.

TIMING CHAIN


I would recommend buying a shop manual from any auto store.

If you are asking than chances are you do not have the required tools to remove the crankshaft bolt.

Remove the valve cover and verify engine is TDC
Remove all accessory belts
Remove the engine mount on the side of your accessory belts
Remove upper and lower timing chaing covers
Using a 24" 1/2" extension along with a breaker bar and crank shaft holder remove the crankshaft bolt
Remove the timing chain tensioner and remove the timing chain
It is a good idea to replace the water pump and all oil seals while doing this job.

Align all marks (balance shaft, crank, cram, and water pump if it has one) and install in reverse order.

By hand this should take 2-3 hours with the right tools
With air tools this should take 1 hour for the average joe or at least it only takes me 45 min to an hour.
