If your trying to change your timing belt you need to put a jack underneath your oil pan and another jack under your transmission. Put a thick piece of wood inbetween jack and oilpan like plywood or 2x4. This will keep you from crushing your oil pan. Remove motor mount bolts in front, back, and left side of engine. (The motor mount bolt next to timing belt cover.) Now you can jack up the jack under your oil pan almost all the way and you should get the clearance you need to get thoose long timing belt cover bolts out and move to the next phase of the job.

It's as simple as unbolting it. If you don't have the strength, get a mechanic.

I cant get off the timing belt cover on a daewoo leganza dohc 2000 do i have to take the pully off. the metal peace behind the motor mount is preventing from coming off


thats correct the engine mount bracket needs to come off also if you need to remove rear timming belt cover to replace say the water pump or do some other repair, 3 torque head bolts are very tight and loctited in usually use correct torque socket and breaker bar to crack, its a bit of a tight squease also.

I have a 87 ford tmpo thatt wont start. i have spark and fuel. the water pump belt broke and my son could not get it started ever since. the compression on the plugs is low at 35psi i am trying to...


That has a timing chain not a timing belt.

I am betting that the vehicle was severely overheated when the water pump belt broke causing the loss of compression. If you pull the valve cover and the camshaft is moving than the timing chain is not the problem. It would be highly unlikely for a timing chain to slip and/or keep turning the cam if it did slip.

It is almost impossible to do the timing chain cover with the motor in the car. You will need to remove the sway bar mounts from the sub frame and the bracket that protects the fuel pressure regulator. You will than be able to get the motor low enough to remove the crank pulley.

Change front main seal , leaking oil around timing chain cover. could be seal around harmonica balancer.


yes, I just changed one of these recently. Had to take both front and bottom off engine. Very difficult repair, as there are no good jack points for the engine when you have all the motor mounts off.
Here is procedure I would recommend.
Remove starter and engine to transmission brackets front and back.
Remove transmission starter gear cover.
drain oil and remove oil pan.
put a block under the crankshaft and jack to release weight on motor mount.
remove front motor mount (by serpentine belt)
remove belt.
remove compressor and bracket.
remove crank pulley and vib damper.
remove timing cover. mark timing belt with direction of travel
loosen tensioner gear.
remove timing belt.
remove crankshaft timing gear and key.
remove seal and oil pump housing.
clean gasket surfaces.
replace seal and reverse procedure.

If you have questions, let me know.

WHERE IS THE WATER PUMP LOCATED ON 1994 HONDA ACCORD EX?


On the driver's side of the motor you can find the water pump almost directly below the side motor mount. All you will see is a small nipple that is actually a "weep hole" opening that will leak to let you know the water pump is bad. To remove it you need to be ready to remove your crank pulley, timing belt cover, the motor mount and your valve cover to get the top timing cover off. It is best to change your timing belt at the same time. Your supposed to do both at about 125k miles.
