    Thanks Bob. Yes I did mean ignition timing. Your response makes a lot of sense. The timing has been adjusted a few times now via repositioning of the distributor, however after everything is working fine, in a mater of a few days while driving the timing will go out. The engine was rebuilt with in the last two years, so I do not believe that it is a timing chain issue, I was thinking that maybe a tooth on the sprocket of the distributor shaft may have broken, but what you suggest is probably accurate.

Not sure what you mean. If you mean ignition timing, you'll need to have a look at the shaft on the distributor. You may need a new bearing or distributor. If the engine has over 100K...you may also have timing chain issues. If the engine has points, change them and use a new condenser.

How to replace a water pump in a 1990 acura integra


Your best bet is go to the local parts store and buy the Haynes Manual. It is an easy process but involves meticulous attention to detail concerning the timing belt and since the water pump is diven from the timing belt, it has to be handled carefully. Keep in mind that you might as well replace the timing belt since your going to be in there anyways. MikeyRiceBurner

HOW MUCH TO PAY FOR TIMING BELT CHANGE-HYUNDAI SONATA 2002


Hi if your made of money then you can go to the main dealer but if your local mechanic is reputable then he should be alot cheaper for the same job, also the timing belt is not usually covered under warrenty, but to comply with the warranty you must keep your car serviced and replacing the timing belt is part of a main service, Hope this helps
