No, the balancer belt just spins to cancel annoying or sometimes harmful vibration. It should not affect anything unless it breaks and a piece of it gets underneath the timing belt. In this case it could throw the cam and crankshaft timing off, and possibly damage the valves. Remove the valve cover and look for excessive clearance on the valves. If things are not right up top you will have to run a compression test or dig down to the bottom and check the timing marks. If the valves are bent you will have to pull the head to replace them.
You should buy all new belts for the car and consider replacing the water pump at the same time.You will have to take off the power steering belt, the alternator belt, the upper belt cover, support the motor, take off the motor mount, jack up the right front corner of the car, take off the front right tire, take off the engine plastic under cover, line up the TDC timing mark, Take off the front wheel ,take off the plastic splash cover, take off the lower pulleys, take off the lower engine cover, observe the timing marks/arrows and highlight with paint,take off the timing belt, now you can take the head off to replace the valves,take off the counter balancer belt , water pump belt, and now you can unbolt the water pump, scrape the gasket, and replace it. Now the good news, if you have tools,a compressor, an air gun(for lower pulley bolt), patience , and four to eight hours to kill, you can actually save money and do it your self.

What is the fuel pump pressure for a 1990 geo storm 2+2


storm what engine? 4xe1 or 4xf1 SOHC or DOHC (twin cam)?
its really an Isuzu Impulse in snack skins (badges)
does test fuel run engine? that is step 2.
if the cam timing belt slips, the DOHC goes boom.
the SOHC engine belt slip,cause no starts, due to huge
compression drop, and fails the test fuel tests.

SOHC, keyon, 30-46PSI
same for both. engines
but as all mPI engines it drop running at idle.
and rises at WOT> (FPR actions most work right running) ask
but its no running
ever do a 60,000 interval tuneup with a new cam belt.
no?

How to adjust valve lash on a 1990 Geo Storm


its an Isuzu engine.
there are 3 engines.
4XE1, SOHC 1.6L (base)12valves
4XE1, DOHC , 1.6L same as above but now with 16valves.
4XE1, DOHC, 1.8L bends valves if belt snaps...
note the bad idea of ISUZU calling all 3 engine same name.
a horrid idea.
which one? the second was in USA and Canada only.
the second one was offered as the GSI. is yours that?

so I will attempt to guess for you, its the base engine.
(odds of coin toss)
toss #2, USA, SOHC
guess 3: did a new belt and want to do lash next. Cam belt>
No job stated so i guess 3 times.
Just lash.
SOHC 1.6L only (FSM book quote)
Check the valve lash between the rocker arm and valve stem on both the intake and exhaust valves on the number 1 cylinder, the intake valve(s) on the number 2 cylinder and the exhaust valve on the number 3 cylinder. If the valve lash on the intake valves is not 0.006 in. (0.15mm), adjust the valve lash. If the valve lash on the exhaust valve is not 0.010 in. (0.25mm), adjust the valve lash.

1.6L twin cam has shims.
1.8L has HLA , no lash to set.

HLA= Hydraulic Lash adjusters.

I posted this before, search for it. Im only doing 1 engine.

I was driving home all of the sudden my car went off so I pulled over checked the engine and I saw that the timed belt was ripped off, I replaced it set it up but still wont start should I looked for some...


Do a compression check on the motor. If it seems to be turning over faster than it did before the timing belt break, you may have bent your valves in the machine head. With out fixing the valves and restoring compression the motor will not run.

I need to find a timing belt diagram for a 1994 mitsubishi galant


Your car will have the 2.4L SOHC engine in it (AKA 4G64). This manual will show you how to replace the timing belt (and more). Timing belt procedures start on page 33.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/4570538/Mitsubishi-4G63-4G64-Engine

(P.S. this manual also includes the 4G63 engine, you can identify your engine by looking at the procedures for the Single OverHead Cam[or SOHC])
