SOURCE: Does a 1993 BMW 318i have a timing belt or a timing chain?

Hi some of them have a belt but yours being the M43 engine is a chain, the only thing to listen for with them is chain slap or an rattling around the chain area, a bit of research on the M43 engine also shows that the chain should be changed after 100000 miles as they become weak, Just joined here and found this unsolved i know its a bit late but hope the extra info helps

SOURCE: how do i tension the

to do it correctly you need a tension gauge, however it is possible without. make sure your timing marks are correct,flywheel locked and camshaft locking tool in place. slacken camshaft sprocket bolt and turn clockwise to stop. fit timing belt in an anticlockwise direction starting at the crankshaft, ensure belt is taught on the non tensioned side between sprockets. turn tensioner pully anticlockwise, untill you can turn belt 90 degrees with finger and thumb pressure. tighten tensioner. tighten camshaft sproket bolt to 63nm. Remove all locking tools. turn engine 2 revolutions from the crankshaft pulley by hand. DO NOT START AT THIS STAGE!!!!!!!! refit all locking tools, if at any stage the engine locks or the tools will not refit, you have done something wrong. Go back to stage one. Check belt tension finger and thumb method, retension as required. turn again by hand. re fit all components and start. If you have whining noises the tension is too tight. Flapping or banging noises too loose. This is not a fool proof method and you have to be aware of the failings of fitting timing belts without the correct tools etc. ENGINE DAMAGE WILL OCCUR IF FITTED INCORRECTLY. A good garage should charge no more than 2.5 hours for this work to be carried out, with a warranty. Hope this helps

How to set timing when you relesh tensioner and it changes the alignment postion of pullies 2000 ford ranger 2.5 l


Here is the trick. Align marks. Put the timing belt on the crank shaft pulley first, and after on the overhead cam pulley. Release tensioner and rotate the crank shaft till the timing belt makes two full circles. Try to align marks, you will be at least one tooth off. Align the crank shaft on the mark, and find out how many teeth you are off at the cam shaft pulley. Count the teeth. Remove the timing belt from cam shaft pulley only. Move cam shaft pulley in reverse according to the number of teeth you counted. Make sure the crank shaft pulley is on the mark. Mount the belt at cam shaft pulley.Rotate the belt two circles and check the marks. Repeate this procedure til after releasing the tensioner, and rotating the timing belt two full circles, the mars will be align.

BMW recommends that the timing belt be changed every second Inspection ii, or every 4 years on cars that have low mileage. Most of the rest of the industry has timing belt changing intervals ranging from 40,000 miles to 60,000 miles. It is better to change the belt at a lower mileage than at a higher number.
The timing belt must be replaced every time the belt tensioner is loosened. Do not reinstall a used belt. Reusing a timing belt, even one with low mileage, is not worth the chance of having a belt break and damaging the engine.

Good luck.

Hi i am struggling to install bmw 316 fanbelt?


it is hard to change a fan belt, coz you need to take off the radiator first to have a better view on the belt. then take off the fan it self then you need to loose all the belt tensioners there's 3 of them.

Fan belt broken


879cd4b.gifthe tesioners (a/c and alternator) are where you will release the tension on the belts. usually the will be a 16mm hex that you can turn and hold to release the spring pressure from the belt.

Fan belt broke cambelt!


Hi
Yes, very true, I should have thought that it would have been sensible procedure, to renew a contaminated fan belt.

I also believe that the cam belt cover should have been removed, to inspect the cam belt, for oil contamination at that time too.
As an oil saturated cam belt would be more consistent to a failure, than a fan belt snapping and getting behind the cover, causing cam belt failure !

You have to seek an appointment with the Dealer Manager, and voice you dissatisfaction with there service, and that the resulting costs would not have been necessary, had my first 2 options above been carried out.
As usual, this smell of shoddy main Dealer Servicing.

By the way, what have they told you the estimated damage is to the engine ?
Normally it would only be a couple of bent valves, requiring, the cylinder head removal, fit new valves, cam belt, fan belt,etc, and reassemble, change oil & filter, & test coolant strength.

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be apreciated please !

John.
