Disconnect the battery and chock the wheels so that the car cannot roll.Remove all obstructions to the timing belt cover.Use a large wrench on the crankshaft pulley to align the mark on the crankshaft pulley with the 0 on the timing scale molded into the engine block.Remove the timing belt cover bolts and pull the cover off.Check the timing belt tensioner bearings. Check the camshaft and crankshaft seals. Make sure that all timing marks are properly aligned, then loosen the timing belt tensioner and remove the timing belt.Put the new belt in place.Apply a new gasket to the timing belt cover and replace it.

Where is the timing belt and how do you fix the timing?


Well Melissa the timing belt is on the front of the engine behind the timing belt cover ! If you look where the alternator is you will see the serpentine belt, It turns the alternator an power steering pump an water pump . This serpentine belt has a spring loaded tensioner to keep it tight . This belt has to come off as well as the alternator an the timing cover to get at the timing belt ! The crankshaft has marks on it as does the cam shaft sprocket , these marks have to be at a certain spot it to be in time ! Did your timing belt wear out ?

Does a V6 engine have to replace the timing belt


Yes, timing belts should be replaced at about 60,000 miles. Some engines will be damaged if the timing belt breaks. Here is a link with more information.

How do i set the timing belt on a 1997 cadillac catera?the betl did not break but how do i make sure the belt did not move a couple of teeth.


Hi, there should be marks on the belt itslf that align with hatch marks on the timing gears. Below are the instructions for installation. From these, you should be able to verify that the belt is in time. There are also some diagrams here: http://www.2carpros.com/diagrams/cadillac/catera/1997


To install:
  1. Install the timing belt.
    1. Start at the crankshaft pulley.
    2. Install the timing belt with a double dash (TDC) mark on the belt aligned with the marks on the oil pump and belt drive gear.
    3. Pinch the belt with special tool J 42069-30 to prevent the splines from jumping.

  2. Route the timing belt through the idler pulley for camshafts 3 & 4 then route the timing belt through the camshaft gears 3 & 4.
    1. Ensure the dash marks on the timing belt align with marks on the camshaft gears and the notches on the rear timing belt cover.
    2. If necessary, loosen timing belt idler pulley or move the cam gears slightly, with J 42069-1 and 2 still in place, until the timing belt can be installed.
    3. Tighten the idler pulley locking bolt until snug. The idler pulley bolt will be tightened to specifications after the final adjustments are made.




NOTE Timing belt deflection between the camshaft gears number 4 and the idler pulley for camshafts 3 & 4, must be no more than 0.4 inch (1 CM.).

  1. If necessary, adjust the timing belt deflection by turning the timing bolt idler pulley eccentric, for camshafts 3 & 4, counter-clockwise with the special tool J 42069-40, or equivalent.

  1. Route the timing belt through the timing belt idler pulley for camshafts 1 & 2 then route the timing belt through camshaft gears 1 & 2.
    1. Ensure the dash marks on the timing belt align with the marks on the camshaft gears and the notches on the rear timing belt cover.
    2. If necessary, loosen the timing belt idler pulley or move the cam gear slightly, with J 42069-1 and 2 still in place, until the timing belt can be installed.
    3. Apply sufficient tension to the timing belt to prevent it from slipping off the gears by turning the timing belt idler pulley eccentric for camshafts 1 & 2 counter-clockwise with special tool J 42069-40 or equivalent.
    4. Tighten the idler pulley locking bolt until snug. Idler pulley bolt will be tightened to specifications after final adjustments are made.

  2. Route the timing belt through the timing belt tensioner.
  3. Apply initial tension to the timing belt by turning tensioner eccentric counter-clockwise, with a 5 mm hex wrench, until marks are set.
    1. Tighten the belt tensioner-locking nut to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).

  4. Adjust the timing belt.
    1. The timing belt must be properly adjusted or engine damage may occur. Do not continue with the engine assembly procedure until the timing belt is properly adjusted.

  5. Install the timing belt cover. Tighten the timing belt cover bolts to 71 inch lbs. (8 Nm).
  6. Install the power steering pump pulley and bolts. Install the water pump pulley and bolts.
    1. Tighten the power steering pump pulley bolts and the water pump pulley bolts after the serpentine drive belt is installed.

Fixing the timing belt


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the accessory drive belts, crankshaft pulley and the timing belt cover(s).
  2. Temporarily reinstall the crankshaft pulley bolt and turn the crankshaft to TDC of No. 1 piston. The mark on the camshaft sprocket should be aligned with the mark on the inner timing belt cover or the edge of the cylinder head.
  3. With the distributor cap removed, the rotor should be pointing toward the No. 1 mark on the rim of the distributor housing. On 8 valve engines, the notch on the crankshaft pulley should align with the dot on the intermediate shaft sprocket.
  4. Loosen the locknut on the tensioner pulley and turn the tensioner counterclockwise to relieve the tension on the timing belt.
  5. Slide the timing belt from the sprockets.

To install:
  1. Check the alignment of the timing marks. On 16 valve engines, the mark on the tooth should align with the mark on the rear belt cover.
  2. Install the new timing belt and tension the belt so it can be twisted 90 ° at the middle of it's longest section, between the camshaft and intermediate sprockets.
  3. Recheck the alignment of the timing marks and, if correct, turn the engine 2 full revolutions to return to TDC of No. 1 piston. Recheck belt tension and timing marks. Readjust as required. Torque the tensioner nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  4. Install the belt cover and accessory drive belts.
  5. If the belt is too tight, there will be a growling noise that rises and falls with engine speed.

Cost of fixing daewoo leguenza


what is the labor rate where u live, here it is $135.00 US per hour, the water pump is driven off the camshaft timing belt, a new timing blet idler pulley is also a must, so you will need a new timing belt also, it can't be used over
Water pump cost $80.00
Timing belt $20.00
Idler pulley for timing belt $35.00
Coolant $20.00
Labor 4 hours
so here in my area this would be $600.00 job
