Timing Belt and Tensioner REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 1984–87 Engines

  1. Turn the crankshaft pulley until it is at Top Dead Center.
  2. Remove the pulley belt, water pump pulley, crankshaft pulley, and timing gear cover. Mark the direction of timing belt rotation.
  3. Loosen, but do not remove, the tensioner adjusting bolt and pivot bolt.
  4. Slide the timing belt off of the camshaft timing gear and the crankshaft pulley gear and remove it from the engine.
  5. To remove the camshaft timing gear pulley, first remove the center bolt and then remove the pulley with a pulley remover or a brass hammer. This can be accomplished by simply removing the timing belt upper cover, loosening the tensioner bolts, and sliding the timing belt off of the gear to expose the gear for removal. NOTE: If you remove the timing gear with the timing belt cover in place, be sure not to let the woodruff key fall inside the timing cover when removing the gear from the camshaft. Inspect the timing belt. Replace if over 90,000 miles old, if oil soaked (find source of oil leak also), or if worn on leading edges of belt teeth.

    Fig. 3: Timing belt tension adjustment — 1984–87 engines 86833163.gif
    To install:
  6. Be sure to install the crankshaft pulley and the camshaft timing gear pulley in the top dead center position. Align the marks on the camshaft timing gear so they are parallel with the top of the cylinder head and the woodruff key is facing up. NOTE: When installing the timing belt, do not allow oil to come in contact with the belt. Oil will cause the rubber to swell. Be careful not to twist the belt unnecessarily or bend in a 90°angle, since it is made with fiberglass; nor should you use tools having sharp edges when installing or removing the belt. Be sure to install the belt with the arrow facing in the same direction it was facing during removal.
  7. After installing the belt, adjust the belt tension by first rotating the crankshaft counterclockwise 1/4 turn. Then, re-tighten the adjusting bolt and finally the tensioner pivot bolt.
  8. Replace the other components removed for belt access.
  9. Start the car, check timing and adjust if necessary WARNING
    Do not remove the adjusting or pivot bolts, only loosen them. When adjusting, do not use any force other than the adjuster spring. If the belt is too tight, it will result in a shortened belt life.

I tried to get my timing belt/water pumped changed at 96,000K's and my dealer told me the belt in our 2003 Civic is good for 7 years or 168,000K's. I didn't believe him, so I called another dealer out of town and they told me 7 years or 184,000K's.

SOURCE: 95 honda civic timing belt replacement process

If you have never changed a cambelt (timing belt) then it is not recommended that you attempt it. It is a job for a mechanic, as getting the cam timing wrong on reassembly is easy to do and can have disastrous consequences. It is easy enough once you know how, and if you are reasonably mechanically able, I'd suggest getting a repair manual for your vehicle that has a step by step procedure for timing belt replacement. Companies like Haynes produce very good repair manuals.

Need to know the steps on how to set the timming on a 1991 hona civic


FIRST:
Click on the following free direct Link. It has the Serpentine Belt Diagram and Tensioner location for your specific 1.5L or 1.6L Engine and options (AC/No AC etc.).
It also has the directional diagrams on how to rotate the Adjustment Bolts on both the Alternator and Power Steering to loosen the belts, inorder to both remove and reinstall the belts.

http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/1991/make/honda/model/civic/1991_honda_civic_drive_belt_routing_diagram.htm
SECOND:
Click on the following free direct Link. It has the Timing: Belt and Mark Diagrams for your 1991 Honda Civic. Plus additional Instructional and Directional Diagrams.
http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/1991/make/honda/model/civic/1991_honda_civic_timing_belt_diagram_marks.htm

I would also strongly suggest purchasing either a Haynes or Chilton Manual, available at most auto parts stores. It has specific information you will need incuding the Torque Specifications for each and every Bolt and Nut you will be removing. Cost is $20-$25 fo the manuals.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

When to change timing belt on 2004 honda civic


Honda reccomends timing belt change at 100k. Most Honda dealers like you to change the belt at 90,000 miles (90k). some auto repair places will want to change the belt at 60k but that is not necessary (Note: if in a severe cold or hot climate like florida or canada you would change the belt before 90k or if the belt is over 7 years old.. Good luck:

from 90,000 to 105,000 miles, also consider the water pump along with the belt.

Timming belt


Boy, you will get several different answers on this one. You manual will give you that info, but from my experience I would not go over 70,000. Ive seen them break at 40,000 and Ive see them still running at well over 100,000. So take your pick. I say 70.
