You think you didn't move anything...chances are something moved. Don't run the engine. Get a chilton or haynes manual and find the proper index locations for the pulleys and re-set the cam timing.
Since the engine still runs, you may be able to find the index marks because you have to be fairly close in order for it to run. Even a 1/16" variation will throw off the phasing between the cam and crank enough to make it run poorly. On most injected engines it will also change when the injectors fire as well. On many engines, being off can cause the valves to strike the pistons, then you'd need to replace the valves....that's why I mentioned not running it...no idea how close you are to doing that.
Marking on the belt shouldn't make a difference if you have the cam and crank positioned correctly but they may use it as a measurement for setup. I've never seen that but it's possible. (I don't have book on yours)

I have an 89 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder and I need to know what belt this is.


your photo is not good so I will give a generic answer
it is the drive belt for the accessories on the engine ( water pump, alternator .ac compressor ,power steering pump
if it "V" shaped it is a V belt
if it is many grooved it is a serpentine belt
the difference is that "V" belts only flex around a pulley where serpentine (grooved ) belts have the grooves around some grooved pulleys and the back runs around flat pulleys
it is not a timing belt

What is the growling noise coming from my 94 civic motor


Water pump or pulley most likely.

Always replace water pump and pulleys when you do the timing belt.

Also you may have overtightened the belt.

NOTE, Kevlar belts will make a "whirring" noise for a few thousand miles after replacement, but not a growling.

Directions on how to change the timing chain on a chevy malibu v6 3.1


This is a challenging project. All of the belts must be removed first. The alternator, AC compressor and power steering pump need to be moved out of the way first. Then remover the front engine covers which would expose the the timing belt and sprockets. Take care in removing the old timing belt. Replace everything in the reverse order. Good luck.

WHERE IS THE TIMING BELT LOCATED ON MY 1998 VW PASSAT?


Timing belt is hidden under all accessories (alternator, A/C compressor, Power Steering pump, etc.) It is a difficult repair, on many VW models it requires removal of the whole 'front clip' which involves fenders, grill and radiator. Expect $600 -$800 cost. Usually the water pump should also be changed with timing belt - just because to tear engine down that far, it is a preventative step to save future problems.

I have a high pitched noise which appears to be coming from front right engine compartment (as you are looking at the engine) which sounds kind of like a belt that is squealing. It is intermittent. Just...


Could be several things. WHICH ENGINE?.. 4 cylinder (has three belts, power steering/water pump, alternator & A/C compressor, one tensioner pully A/C compressor), The V6 2.7 (has only one belt, 1 Idler pully and 1 tensioner pully), the V6 3.5 has two belts - A/C/alternator, and power steering - there are two tensioner pullys). Noises can be caused by the belt(s) themselves, pullys, bearings, pully bearings, water pump shaft bearings (or belts/pullys rubbing up against something). Let's not forget that there is also belt(s) behind the Timing Belt cover as well as pullys and bearings associated with the timing system. You could start by removing one accy drive belt at a time (alternator, water pump, compressor, power steering, etc) to see whether or not the noise goes away in each case. If after each case, you discover the noise is still there, it's probably behind the timing belt cover (idler/tensioner pully, water pump shaft bearing, crankshaft bearing, etc.). Good Luck

Alternator


Odds are the alternator must always be removed to change a timing belt. The alternator is either up top or hidden own under the bottom. Either way if you think about it man it has to be pretty easy to find it has the belt connected to it.
