You must have misaligned the timing marks, you need to go back and check and double check your work.
Please be careful, if you have set the timing out too far you run the risk of a valve coming into contact with a piston crown and thats not good for either.

Sounds like you have done it wrong and crunched the valves ,did you turn engine over by hand after fitting the new belt before attempting to start the engine

Zx2 ran fine for a bit after timing belt change, now no start.


suspect the timing belt tension was to low and has jumped a few teeth initially(run rough) and then jumped further or stripped teeth(will not start at all).
check timing belt position setup....
if its 1-2 teeth out of timing you could put a new belt on with engine correctly setup.
.if its completely wrong the your engine will have internal damage(valves bent and pistons dented)

When do i replace the timing belt on my seat inca van 2004


Those belts are usually supposed to be changed every 60,000 miles. Behind the timing belt cover is your water pump. They can make noise when going out, but usually a timing belt makes no noise, just breaks. If you ever have to change the water pump, it is always suggested to change the timing belt as well. VS. If your timing belt gets stretched, it will make a bit of a noise, but your car will start running poorly at the same time. Hope I was helpful

Went to start my car this morning been running fine and it will crank but wont start the maintance required flashes 10 times then goes off it is a 2004 honda accord lx


Timing belt ever been changed? Sure does sound like the problem. An old belt will snap on a cold start. Might want to look to see if the belt is tight and in place. These belts break regularly on Hondas with over 70,000 miles on them. Timing Belt change interval is 50,000.
