Question about 1993 Honda Accord

2 Answers

My timing belt is on the front side and tight on the side that connects to the waterpump. Does that mean a new timing belt or tentioner? I found the problem by checking to see if the waterpump went bad because the started over heating I think it was the thermostat was causing it to over heat.

Hi, if the belt has broken. this means the valves are bent if this engine is an INTERFERANCE FIT ENGINE (meaning the valves stay held down by the CAMSHAFT and the PISTONS RAM into them). (normally only 3 valves BEND on a 4 cylinder engine). if the BELT KEEPS GOING AROUND out of 16 valves (TWIN CAMSHAFT maybe 15 valves BENT. take timing cover off and check if belt is loose and intacted. if this is an INTERFERANCE FIT ENGINE the HEAD will NEED to come OFF. i do'nt know if this engine is as above. there may be damage to the pistons as well. please check before you take the HEAD OFF. gerry

Check the belt for wear if nothing is present its normal it all depends on what stroke the engine is on. Thats why it has a tentioner. So the belt can free float. If you want to confirm this just turn the engine a little bit manually and you can watch the belt get tight and loose.

How do i tighten the timing belt on my 1989 pontiac


I assume you are replacing the belt and also the waterpump, the waterpump is what tightens the timing belt, it spins in the housing in an oval shaped housing and tightens or loosens the belt, you need to loosen the waterpump bolts and rotate the pump to tighten the timing belt, make sure theres a small amount of slack in the belt after you tighten it, you dont what the belt too tight, you should be able to grab belt and move in and out an inch. heres a diagram to make sure all timing marks are lined up. note if the timing belt is being replaced you really should install a new waterpump and check the timing pulleys. good day.

Timing belt gets loose after cranking or when given gas and also causes tentioner to depress so got new tentioner new belt and pully timing dead on and dont know whats causeing belt to get loose after...


with the belt off negative side of battery disconnected, check

all pulleys especially the ac compressor pulley, make sure they

turn easily and there is no binding, make sure there is no oil

residue or any other liquid on pulleys. make sure you have the

correct belt size for your car and that the belt layout is correct.
good luck!

How to change a water pump


First drain the coolant if possible (you will find a drain **** on the bottom drivers side of rad). Loosen the water pump pulley bolts while serpentine belt still attached (10mm X 4). Remove the serpentine belt, and plastic diagram bracket just above the waterpump. Remove the (8mm bolts X 5) holding the water pump to front engine housing. Note the little arrow or triangle at the top of waterpump when removing, it will help you to install new water pump in same location. Scrape off most of the old gasket material, use fine sand paper to clean engine surface as best as possible. Install new gasket to water pump, and align the holes (it only goes on one way, and maybe upside down if they don't line up). Locate arrow and reinstall, torque 5 bolts to 89 in/lbs tight but not too tight. Reinstall pulley, serpentine belt and bracket. Tighten the pulley bolts, refill coolant (close drain ****). Just above the waterpump there is a coolant hose with a little 7mm screw for a bleeder. Open the bleeder (engine off). Continue to fill rad with coolant until it comes out bleeder. Close bleeder and test run. Recheck the coolant level later when cooled.

How to adjust a tensioner on a 2001 chrysler voyager


You mean your belt tentioner, serpentine belt, it is not adjustable if your belt is coming off you have a bad tentioner, bad pulley or your power stering pump is leaken and your belt is soaked, if oilly firts found your leak (most common is a hose from reservoir to pump) then replace belt with a cheap belt (had lost of trouble with Life time or hi dollar belts), in the mean time also inspect your tentioner if ani play side ways replace it, also remove idle pulley and spun it close to your ear, if any noise replace it, you may get away with a single item changed, but for trouble free time, replace all items: belt tentioner ($38) idle pulley($25) serpentine belt ($25)

How do i time my Golf 1 correctly? it consumes a lot


its tricky enough if your not sure what your doing but ill run you through it. 1. remove top rocker cover and timing belt cover. 2 make up the position of the pully on the cam shaft at the top and the drive shaft at the bottom, this marks are you fail safe incase you cant time the engine. 3 remove the timing belt and pully tentioner, note if your going this far you are as well to replace the timing belt,tentioner and water pump. 4 On the cam shaft at the top if you force them to turn you will see a small indicator mark on the shaft this mark has to line up with the other indicator mark on the housing between the cam shaft and the cam shaft pully, once they line up your top end is timed, mark up the pully incase it moves. 5 on the drive shaft pully there is also markings that have to line up but you can also feel the position of the pully as you turn it, you will feel the piston been forced up and it is timed at top dead centre on cylinder one, which means the the piston has to be at the top just before the point of returning back down, using your feeling as a guide and the markings lined up you will have timing. also mark up this pully, your new marking should be very very close to the fail safe markings you put on at the start. when you have your marking replace the timing belt with the longest distance between pully contact going on first, try not disturb your timing or your hard work will have been for nothing, make sure the tentioner on the belt is tight but not to tight to the point where you ll stretch the belt or snap it, put everything back as you found it and crank the engine, job done, best of luck. hope this helps( rate me on my answer thanks )

Serpentine belt on 96 saturn sc loose what could it be


Hello there:
Normally a serpentine belt will stay on tight untill it begins to strech out after it streches out to far the tention idler pulley cannot keep the belt tension tight any longer thus resulting in a belt either coming off or other things happening So what i would do is to first remove the serpentine belt and ensure that the tention idler pulley is working good make sure it does not just move freely than get a new belt and install now you should be ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

The tension is set automatically with the belt tensioner. It looks like a pulley. You put a wrench or socket on the bolt in the center of the tensioner and apply pressure. It is spring loaded. As you apply the pressure it will release the tension on the belt for removal or installation.
