Question about 1997 Honda Accord
When the engine is running you can here the belt slapping aganist timing belt casing took casing off and there is two springs one on each side and belt tightener but the tightener will only loosen and will not tighten any more dose this mean that the tightener is at its capacity or does it mean that it ceased and whst could i do to fix this problem.
If the Tensioner is at its max travel, and won't go any further it is either siezed or simply at its capacity. As far as which one it is, I'm afraid there is little way to tell without actually being there looking at it.
However! I must stress to you that dealing with the timing belt and/or tensioner should be done by a Qualified Honda Technician. It is possible to seriously damage your engine's internal components if a miscalulation or mis-step is performed while uninstalling or reinstalling the timing belt.
