Do you have the 2.4 Quad 4 engine? This makes a difference. Let me know so I can give you the proper sequence.

Where is timing belt located on my 2002 Pontiac Grand Am


nowhere. it has a timing chain that should last forever as long as you keep your oil in good shape. doesn't matter if you have a 4 cylinder or a v6, they both use chains.

I need to locate my water pump on my 96, pontiac grand am 2.4 cyl...


If I remember correctly, that is a chain driven water pump. You'll have to take the timing cover off and remove the timing chain to get to the pump. I've done the timing on a Quad4 engine before and I think I would rater set fire to the car than to do that again.

Need timing marks for a 1996 pontiac grand am se 2.4 DOHC


YOU WILL SEE A HOLE IN THE CAM GEAR THAT A 3/8 BOLT WILL FIT INTO. PUT A BOLT INTO THE HOLES OF BOTH CAM GEARS. THEN LINE UP THE CRANK PULLEY KEYWAY AT ABOUT 12 O'CLOCK WITH THE MARK ON THE ENGINE BLOCK.

MAKE SURE TO COMPRESS THE CHAIN TENSIONER AND RELEASE IT WHEN THE CHAIN IS IN POSITION.

Just alot of problems


I suggest you go to a mechanic that knows what they're doing. You could have a gasket that needs to be replaced. I have a 2000 grand am and the water pump went. I went back to my mechanic three times because my car was still overheating and leaking. They finally figured out I needed a gasket replaced. I also had the timing chain replaced because my car was shaking they found that the piece that holds the timing chain was broke so they had to replace that too. My car doen't shake anymore. Maybe something is busted that controls your timing chain. Hope all this info helps.
