    Can i remove the timing chain tensioner from the top of the motor on a 2000 cavalier 2.2l or is that only with a dual cam?


    Hi Friend:

    Your Timing Chain Tensioner is located in the Lower Front of your engine.

    #1) you'll have to disconnect your negative Battery cable.

    #2) Remove the Top Engine cover to give you better access to the Front of Engine.

    #3) Then you'll need to remove your alternator and with wiring attached put it off to the Side you might have to tie it with a wire to secure it.

    #4) then you'll need to remove your Power Steering Leave the Lines on it and Put it to the sideas well , Tie off if necessary.

    #5) then Jack up the front of your car,make sure you Put Good Stands under the car to keep it secure.while you work under it.

    #6) then remove the TWO front Oil Pan Bolts Only the very 2-Front ones.

    #7) Then directly above the Oil pan front of the Engine you'll see your Crank Shaft Pulley Remove it, You will need a Puller to Remove it.then the Timing Chain Cover, There are Several bolts Holding it on to the front of the Engine.

    #8) Remove ALL the Bolts on Timing over, then Take cover Off,It could be a Little Stubborn ,if All bolts are out for sure, Take a Small plastic mallet and Tap the Cover Easily,until it comes off.

    #9) Now before you remove anything else there is a Timing Mark on the Cam Shaft and one on the Crank Shaft,NOTE: BESURE you line them marks up,The Cam Shaft Mark should be pointing Straight Down--And the Crankshaft Mark needs to be Pointing Straight up.and Lined up with the Top Timing Mark.If the are Not

    NOTE: Rotate the Engine by Hand Turning the Sprockets until they are LINED Up.

    Then Take off the Top Cam Shaft Mounting Bolts,then Pull Sproket and timing Chain at the Same Time.

    Then Loosen the Chain Tensioner Bolt with out taking it ALL the Way OUT. then remove your Chain Tensioner.

    If your this far i Recommend that you Replace The Timing Chain,Cam Sproket and Crankshaft Sproket as well.

    If not the Install your new Chain Tensioner,And Just Simply Reverse the Un-Install Directions.To Put All back Together.

    Do Replace the Timing Cover Seal. Using Proper Seal Remover and Installer.

    Also before you put your Timing cover back on CLEAN the Surfaces of the Engine and the Cover.And Use a Gasket Sealer and Mount to Block ==Lining Up ALL your Timing Cover Bolt Holes. Let it set a Short time a Few Minutes at Least. To prevent Slipping when installing your Timing Case Cover.

    1- Last Thing Torque your Timing Chain Tensioner at 89 Inch Pounds.Which rewuires a Torque Wrench.

    And Torque ALL your Timing Cover Bolts at 97 Inch Pounds.Do NOT Over Tighten You'll Strip them.

    MAKE Sure the Timing Marks are Still lined up.

    This will get your Timing Chain Tensioner Replaced. Thanks for using FixYa From: d_hubbs

    Changing water pump 2000 ford focus


    Changing a water pump is pretty basic. Since the coolant system is a closed system you only need to be concerned with that system. For instance you since you have to mess around with it anyway you might as well change the thermostat and flush the coolant system. Make sure your radiator hoses are in good shape and that's about it.
    If you have basic mechanical skills and tools you will have no problem replacing a water pump.


    As far as information with the actual replacement there are a number of experts here including myself that could explain how to do it.
    However no matter how good our explanations are it just can't compare to a good repair manual.
    A repair manual for your car at Auto Zone would likely cost between $12 and $15. It is a great investment if you are going to keep your car for any length of time. When you sell, it shows the buyer you took the time to maintain and repair it right.
    I personally like Haynes Manuals.
    I hope this helps.

    Water pump


    Hello nedy...if you have the V6 engine, it will require the removal of the timing chain cover to access the water pump. The water pump is mounted to the engine block with 4 bolts. It is recommended that the bolts be replaced due to electrolysis (steel bolt in aluminum block) Replace all gaskets and o-ring seals as well.
    While you are in there, you can inspect the timing chains, it has 3..and the chain tensioners. A Haynes repair manual would be helpful on this project and will have the correct torque specs.
    Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate mr a fixya.
