If you are talking about the serpentine belt (the one that moves alternator etc.) ou need to put the belt in tension by undoing the bolt that holds the main pulley and moving the pulley arm, if the arm does not move use a rubber hammer.
If you are talking about the cam belt, the job is more complicate, you need to remove several parts to access to bel tensioner, then you push in the tensioner to release cam belt, refit the belt and assemble the whole thing back.

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)

if the car keeps jumping 2 or 3 teeth on the timing, it's possible that you need a new timing chain/belt and tensioner.

Timing is way off do timing belts jump a tooth and if so what are the marks


Both the 2.2 and the 2.4 engines use a chain, not a belt.
A chain could still be faulty, but I doubt it would jump teeth unless the tensioner failed to keep it tight.

The timing belt keeps jumping and bending the vaules


If your timing belt keeps skipping teeth then you may need a new belt, a new automatic tensioner, or need to align the pulleys correctly before putting the belt on.

Timing belt is missing teeth


The belt has stretched causing the belt to jump timing. When you have a belt to jump a gear or pulley it causes more force on the teeth, breaking them off. That's a lot of torque when an engine turns over and the belt is stretched. It doesn't take much for them to break off, you're lucky the belt didn't break apart, it could have been a bigger mess with valves and head problems. Some belts should be changed every 100,000 miles, some say less. Good Luck.

1992 lexus ls 400 timing belt


I have the same problem with my 94 LS, its getting fixed now. The camshaft sensor is telling the computer that the timing is off, meaning your timing belt is either jumping or missing teeth, or it may be going bad. It is a very big job, so I suggest replacing the belt, water pump, tensioner, and maybe the seals and pulleys as well. Are you at a lost of power, has you car ever cut off at a stop red light or when driving?

Is it getting the correct tension on the belt. Is the belt tension spring broke. Make sure you have the right belt. On the 1.9 engine they changed it in 1992 from a square tooth belt to a round tooth belt or the other way around. I'm not sure. Just make sure the teeth on the gears is the same as the belt. I know you said it was a 1994 but do you know if a previous owned changed the motor?
