Normally it is the preventive care than to wait for a failure as it can be too dangerous or damaging for the engine while it is running.

So do not wait for symtoms but if the car has crossed over 60000 miles,it is time to change.

My front crank seal is leaking can it harm my timing belt


Dear Calvin,

Just Have Your Front Crank Seal Replaced. The Water Pump Does not Need To Be Replaced At This Time. Try Taking It To Two More Mechanics. See what They Say. And Decide On A Fix.

Hope This Helps,

1999 ford expedition - needs a timing belt, but mechanics keep telling me that it has a chain and not a belt. I just need it done and want to know stuff like - how much time it takes, how much it cost's,...


No engine used in the Expedition has a timing belt, they all have timing chains, timing chains never have to be replaced unless they fail or the engine is being rebuilt. On this engine replacing the timing chains for each of the two camshafts (2) cost about $500.00

How to know if timing belt on volvo t6 needs to be replaced if dealer stamps and bills don't show it. The 105 page was stamped.


The timing belt should have been replaced at the 105K service. Someone should look at the timing belt to determine the condition. However, if you have any doubts, you should replace it to be on the safe side. Also replace the mechanical tensioner.

My saturn needs a new timing belt. does it have


I believe by 2000 interference motors are no longer, but anytime you drop a timing belt when the engine is running at 2,500 RPM's that is hard on the valve train.
I would replace the belt and try it out.
Let me know if you need the procedure, and how it goes.

It is a right hand thread and you usually need an impact gun. Take the fan out of the way, to give you more room, I have found that helps.

Replace the timing belt tensioner on a 1990 Nissan Sentra


The belt tensioner is located under the timing cover. It is 1 1/2 round and about 3/4 inch with a groove in the middle where a bolt is tightened. When you remove the timing cover you will see the timing belt, the camshaft sprocket and the crankshaft gear. The timing belt goes around these components.. The belt tensioner is loosened and the new timing belt is placed. The sproket also has to be replaced if it is broken. Be careful to notice the little marks that are aligned on the sproket and above the camshaft.. They can be small arrows that have to be aligned exactly the way you took them off. replace the belt and you tighten the tensioner so the belt fits snug and tighten the bolt in the middle of the belt tensioner. It is not too difficult, if you know something about mechanics. If you don't, you will be better of taking it to somebody who does know.
