You don't need to remove the engine. The basic procedure to access the timing belt for the Hyndai Cars is:
Raise and support your car in jack stands. Remove the passenger side wheel, and the splash guard. You have to remove the accessory belts, water pump pulley, remove crank shaft pulley, and then remove the upper and lover timing belt covers. If you decide to do this job by yourself, you need a lot of information. Only a mistake and the valves might be bent. A good start point is Haynes Repair Manual specific for your car. You ca buy it on line, at farm & fleet store, or any car parts store. Hope this will help.

    It is a diesel 2.0L Santa Fe

  • global1207 Oct 10, 2010

    For a diesel 2.0L Santa Fe, you don't need to remove the engine too :
    Remove drive belts and drive pulleys from crank shaft and water pump. Remove the timing belt covers. To align the timing marks, rotate engine clockwise with No1 cylinder at TDC . Ensure camshaft sprocket timing marks align with upper surface of rocker cover. Hope this will help. A good rating would be appreciated.

How do i remove timing belt cover on 2000 toyota camry 4 cylinder 2.2 litre? i notice the securing bolts around the perimeter. do i access some of these from the wheel bay?

See here for info, p26 and 242.

This is for an earlier year model, but is for the 2.2L engine.

You will have to remove the crank pulley, timing belt covers and timing belt, for best access. Unless it is fairly new, I would replace the belt wile you are at it.

When should the timing belt be changed on 2011 vw crafter auto

Follow th emanufactors maintenance gulde that came with the car or:

It\'s easy to check the belt for signs of premature wear -- just locate it in the engine bay (usually under a plastic or metal shield that should be easy to remove) and check it for drying, fraying and discoloration.

The belt itself is inexpensive, probably costing less than $20 at an auto parts store. Your mechanic will probably charge several hundred dollars (or more) for a belt replacement service, though. Those hours spent dismantling and reassembling the engine bay add up quickly.

You can replace the timing belt yourself if you have access to the necessary equipment. In some cars, it\'s a straightforward procedure -- remove the engine covers and shrouds, line up the camshaft and crankshaft, slip off the old belt, and slip on the new one. Sometimes, though, it\'s a lot more complicated. For example, the timing belt might loop through a motor mount, in which case the mount would need to be removed to access the belt. You\'d need an engine hoist or stand to safely remove and replace the mount [source:Juran].

Keep in mind that an error in this job, such as improperly turning the engine by hand or failing to coordinate the shafts, will cause the same damage as a snapped belt. Make sure you understand the procedure before getting started.

Do I need to remove the crank pulley when replacing timing belt on a 1998 ford escort wagon and how do u remove the wheel well to gain access to the timing cover?

Yes, the crank pulley has to be removed to access the timing belt.
The plastic Wheelwell covers are held on with 10mm bolts, the actual metal wheelwell is welded to the subframe, firewall & core support and can't be removed.
To easily change the timing belt you have to put a floor jack under the oil pan (i recommend using a block of wood between the jack & oil pan to prevent damage), remove the Upper Motor Mount on the Right side of the car, and then use the jack to raise & lower the engine as needed to access each bolt.

How do you set the timming on a 2.3 when your putting the new timming belt on

The IGNITION timing on your Ranger is computer-controlled and is not adjustable.

Should the camshaft drive belt/timing belt jump timing by a tooth or two, the engine could still run; but very poorly. To visually check for correct timing of the crankshaft, auxiliary shaft, and the camshaft follow this procedure:
There is an access plug provided in the cam drive belt cover so that the camshaft timing cam be checked without moving the drive belt cover.
  1. Remove the access plug.
  2. Turn the crankshaft until the timing marks on the crankshaft indicate TDC.
  3. Make sure that the timing mark on the camshaft drive sprocket is aligned with the pointer on the inner belt cover.

Never turn the crankshaft of any of the overhead cam engines in the opposite direction of normal rotation. Backward rotation of the crankshaft may cause the timing belt to slip and alter the timing.

See Figures 1, 2 and 3

Fig. Fig. 3: Releasing the timing belt tensioner using a special tool

  1. Rotate the engine so that No. 1 cylinder is at TDC on the compression stroke. Check that the timing marks are aligned on the camshaft and crankshaft pulleys. An access plug is provided in the cam belt cover so that the camshaft timing can be checked without removal of the cover or any other parts. Set the crankshaft to TDC by aligning the timing mark on the crank pulley with the TDC mark on the belt cover. Look through the access hole in the belt cover to make sure that the timing mark on the cam drive sprocket is lined up with the pointer on the inner belt cover.

Always turn the engine in the normal direction of rotation. Backward rotation may cause the timing belt to jump time, due to the arrangement of the belt tensioner.
  1. Drain cooling system. Remove the upper radiator hose as necessary. Remove the fan blade and water pump pulley bolts.

How to take the timing chain off to replace the water pump

The best way to do this yourself is to get a HAYNES or other auto manual. This is a complicated procedure and if not performed EXACTLY, timing can thrown off, not to mention the fact that engine damage can occur.
Usually it is just a matter of aligning the timing marks on each cam (double overhead cams) AS WELL AS the crankshaft (bottom pulley) all at the exact marks to make sure the timing is not disturbed. These manuals would be worth their weight in gold to get the exact procedure done correctly. The manuals are only about 20-30 bucks, and contain a boatload of other useful info also.

General outline:
1-Tear down engine sufficiently to access removing the timing belt cover.
2-Remove timing belt cover.
3-Turn engine over slowly and manually (by hand) until you have reached the ALIGNED points described by the MANUAL.
4-Remove the timing belt TENSION ADJUSTER, then the timing belt.(It is CRITICAL that the timing is not disturbed at this point, until the timing belt is installed.

*Do not reinstall the old timing belt, use a NEW one.*

5-You now have access to the water pump/mounting bolts.
6-Replace the water pump.
7-Reinsure the timing marks proper positions as you install the NEW timing belt, taking into account the slack that the tension adjuster you also will install will remove.
8-Recheck your timing mark alignments by turning the engine by hand back and foth some.
9-Reinstall the timing belt cover.
10-Reinstall all the components that you had to tear down to gain access for this job.

If you double checked your timing calculations, and your water pump replacement, everything should be good to go.

It's a little time consuming, you will need a harmonic balacer puller/reinstaller tool, and air tools will knock it out much quicker. Your back might be aching a lil by the time this job is complete.

Reply back if you need more info.

Hope this helps.

Timing belt for a mitsubishi 2003

You need to get a manual. Try the Haynes manual for your car. Try autozone; generally available for around $20-$25. This is not the type of thing that can be covered here in enough detail to do you any good. You need pictures.
