My list to tackle this for any car:
-----------------------------------------------
maint. manual (Haynes manual perhaps - $20 any auto parts store) - telling timing mark
alignment procedure & marks, including whether or not engine is an interference-running
engine (or not).
pulley puller(s) - several
serpentine belt removal kit - if needed, try Loan-a-tool program at Advance/Autozone
socket set - with extensions, U-joints, English/metric - extensive version
general tool kit - extensive version, including flashlight with spare batteries
lighting - I like (2) 120V utility lights on extension cords (one high & one low)
cardboard sheets (to lay upon while under car)
newspaper - to absorb any dripped fluids (there are always drips)
shade tree - so a multi-day project needn't be done in direct sunlight
tarp - to cover everything in case of rain
key to car - to lock toolboxes inside car trunk during lunch/overnight
cardboard trays - hold tools/parts in logical groups atop engine while job in progress
sheet(s)/cardboard sheet(s) -protect car upholstery in case you want to put something in the interior
paper towels (roll), rags
work-type clothing - something that can get dirty
trash bags (smaller shopping bag type) - for disposables/dirty parts

2005 Dodge Magnum - 3.5 litre - 128,000 miles - P0016. Scan tool identifies both cam and crank to be in sync, yet code returns after about 2 minutes of running.


I was going to say that the timing belt had failed, if this wasn't replaced do so, and also replace the water pump as if it fails it will jump the T. belt and bend the valves.

I need the diagram for a 2006 kia sorento timing chain markings, (the chain has no coloured links)


The Sorento has a timing BELT not a chain. Here is an image of the 3.5 litre engine & the timing marks. Note: special tools are required to hold the camshaft sprockets in place when belt is installed to prevent any movement....I hope this helps.

Diagram for volkwagon transporter 1997 2 litre 4 cylinder timing belt replacement


I found a 2.0L VW engine for a Cabrio. Not sure if this is the right one, but here goes:

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

NOTE: Do not turn the engine or camshaft with the timing belt
removed. The pistons will contact the valves and cause internal engine damage.

Gasoline Engines

Fig. 2: Remove the timing belt cover

Fig. 5: Loosen the tensioner bolt
91223p48.jpg







Fig. 6: Mark the belts direction of rotation
91223p52.jpg



  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:

  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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).
  9. Install the belt cover and accessory drive belts.
  10. If the belt is too tight, there will be a growling noise that rises and
    falls with engine speed.


Diesel Engines

Some special tools are required. A flat bar, VW tool no. 2065A, is used to
secure the camshaft in position. A pin, VW tool no. 2064, is used to fix the
pump position while the timing belt is removed. The camshaft and pump work
against spring pressure and will move out of position when the timing belt is
removed. It is not difficult to find substitutes but do not remove the timing
belt without these tools.
NOTE: Do not turn the engine or camshaft with the timing belt
removed. The pistons will contact the valves and cause internal engine damage.



  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the accessory drive belts,
    crankshaft pulley and the timing belt cover(s). Remove the camshaft cover and
    rubber plug at the back end of the camshaft.
  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 engine at TDC, insert the bar into the slot at the back of the
    camshaft. The bar rests on the cylinder head to will hold the camshaft in
    position.
  4. Insert the pin into the injection pump drive sprocket to hold the pump in
    position.
  5. Loosen the locknut on the tensioner pulley and turn the tensioner
    counterclockwise to relieve the tension on the timing belt. Slide the timing
    belt from the sprockets.
    To install:

  6. Install the new timing belt and adjust the tension so the belt can be
    twisted 45 degrees at a point between the camshaft and pump sprockets. Torque
    the tensioner nut to 33 ft. (45 Nm).
  7. Remove the holding tools.
  8. Turn the engine 2 full revolutions to return to TDC of No. 1 piston. Recheck
    belt tension and timing mark alignment, readjust as required.
  9. Install the belt cover and accessory drive belts.
  10. If the belt is too tight, there will be a growling noise that rises and
    falls with engine speed.

Do i need lock tool to change cam belt on a 03 grand vitara


I'd be first confirming whether you have a 1.6 litre Grand Vitara (petrol), or a 2 litre turbo diesel. The 2 litre petrol (straight 4 or V6) or 2.5 litre petrol engines are all chain drive.
If your engine is petrol then no lock tool is required (to hold the camshaft). Of course, there is a specific position that an engine should be rotated too before removing the belt from ANY engine.
If it's diesel, then although I'm unfamilar with that particular engine, the general requirement for diesel engines with high pressure injection pumps is "yes, you require a lock tool" to hold the injection pump pulley. As I think these are a common rail set-up, this requirement may not be necessary. Check with your Suzuki Dealer, or maybe someone else here will know more. A similar question may have already been asked and answered here too.

How to install timing belt on 1998 vw beetle 2


I assume you don't have a Bentley's factory manual and special tool to tighten the belt. I am strongly recommending you purchase either a disc format or hard copy of the factory manual and not generic Chiltons or Hayes because it is necessary for timing marks line up. If you cant buy one I know you can try your local public library for reference materials.

I need to replace the timing belt on my 98 dodge avenger


depending if its a 2.0 or a 2.5 really either or, i personally recommend taking it to a shop, you have to pull the motor to get to the timing belt on a 2.0 and just the same on a 2.5, that or tilt it on such an agle to access the timing belt and to be able to remove the proper bolts to access the belt, then after you get to the belt you have to have a special tool for the belt tentioner and align the top dead center with the new belt, in doing this you may have to have a camsaft turn in a way that when the tentioner is let off they all align with the new belt... it is a very agrivating process...

1997 dodge avenger 2.0, belt squealing


Hi

The Power Steering Belt tension requires adjustment, to give it more tension, to cure the slipping, resulting in the squealing, or perhaps renewal, due to cracking or excessive wear.

Your Power steering Belt, belt is your primary problem.

Good Luck !

A FixYa Would Be Nice, Thank´s......John.
