Often change timing belt


I don't know of an Eldorado that uses a belt. They use a timing chain.
Cars that use a belt will not run when the belt breaks.

My aunt has a 97 nissan pick up she said the engine light is on and the belts are noisy. do u think that a nissan with 87000 on it would have a problem with the timing belt or just needs new plugs?


The check engine light is warning the driver the computer has found a problem that will affect engine performance or emissions. The light would not come on for a problem with the timing belt or accessory belts.
87,000 miles is around the time most companies recommend replacing the timing belt.
You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed with troubleshooting the problem or problems.

What are causes of a bad timing belt in1996 hyundai elantra


Timing belts do wear out - they flex and bend literally millions of times while they last.
If you are having problems with timing belts wearing out before their rated lifespan, check the timing gears for misalignment, burrs, wear, or improper lubrication. Worn crank, camshaft or belt tensioner bearings may also cause problems with the belt. Also make sure the belt tensioner is working properly, with the rated amount of tensioning force.

Does My 93 Camry have a timing chain or Belt ? when to change it?


its timing belt. This car requires the timing belt to be serviced at every 60k miles. This engine is a non-interference motor, so the engine will not get damaged internally if belt breaks. But other parts externally can become damaged. Also at the same time the timing belt is changed, replace the water pump, idler and tensioner pulleys.

1995 Honda civic - Replaced a bad water pump, and the timing belt broke. replaced the timing belt, but the car don't start. Won't tun over. Help


Not at all unusual for the timing belt to break and cause major mechanical problems inside of your engine. A failed timing belt can totally destroy your engine due to the extremely close clearences. That's why the strongly recommend a preventative replacement of the timing belts in all Hondas and Toyotas at specified mileage frequencies between 70,000 and 120,000 miles. Change the timing belt before it destroys the engine. You may now be at a point where only the Honda Dealer or authorized garage may be able to help diagnose the problem.
