WOW you work on engines not knowing what is there?
the engines are: 7 engines.!!!
1.3 L I4; 1.5 L I4; 1.6 L I4; 1.8 L I4; 2.0 L I4; 2.3 L I4; 1.4 L Diesel I4 ill guess, ( (die roll)
2.3 L below.

all answers, USA cars, this a USA forum. so.....
ever heard of the FSM the oem factory service manual?

is the chain making noises? if yes, the guide is bad, most chains fail due to that (as a true cause)
the FSM is here , just $4 to look , so ????

the clone is DIY, log in and read like we do.
google , bingo....

now the 2.3L (just the first half, ill let you pay $4 like we do)
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Remove engine assembly from vehicle.
  3. Remove oil pan.
  4. Remove cylinder head cover.
  5. Remove timing chain cover as follows:
    • Remove crankshaft pulley bolt. To lock crankshaft pulley, use special tool 09917-68221 (camshaft pulley holder).
    • Remove crankshaft pulley. To remove crankshaft pulley, use special tools 09944-36011 and 09926-58010 (steering wheel remover and bearing puller attachment).
    • Remove A/C compressor bracket.
    • Remove alternator belt idler pulley, water pump pulley and alternator belt tensioner.
    • Remove timing chain cover bolts and nut.
    • For reinstallation of timing chain, turn crankshaft so that timing marks on cylinder head and lower crankcase match with those on sprockets as shown in figure.
    • Remove second timing chain as follows:
      • Turn crankshaft to meet following conditions.
        • Key (I) on crankshaft is positioned as shown.
        • Arrow mark on idler sprocket (II) points upward.
        • Marks on sprockets (III) match with marks on cylinder head. Note that this step must be followed for reinstallation of timing chain.
      • Remove timing chain tensioner adjuster No.2 and gasket. To remove them, slacken second timing chain by turning intake camshaft counterclockwise a little while pushing back pad.
      • Remove intake and exhaust camshaft timing sprocket bolts. To remove them, fit a spanner to hexagonal part at the center of camshaft to hold it stationary.
      • Remove camshaft timing sprockets and second timing chain.
      • warning
      • After second timing chain is removed, never turn intake camshaft, exhaust camshaft and crankshaft independently more than such an extent as shown. If turned, interference may occur between piston and valves and valves themselves, and parts related to piston and valves may be damaged.

1998 lexus gs 300 oil leaking from timing belt area

style engines have timing chain covers that are sealed to the engine block using a gasket. With time this gasket can become weak allowing engine oil to leak. If after inspection this is the case with your engine, the only remedy is to disassemble and remove the timing chain cover to replace the gasket.
Top should read Timing chain style engines. hope this infor will be of use

I have a 2006 Suzuki GS500F and it is leaking oil from the bottom of the clutch side of the case. Is it a gasket, and if so how difficult is it to replace? Any feedback would be helpful, thank you.

It is most likely a gasket. I'm guessing the clutch plates might have been replaced and the old gasket has been reused. It's common for them to tear when you take the clutch cover off and unless you are very careful and use some kind of sealant where the tears happen it can cause leaks later.

The best way to fix it is to take the clutch cover off and clean all of the old gasket from the clutch cover and the engine side also. You might need to scrape parts of it off with something sharp. Razor blades work well. Just be very careful not to scratch the sealing surface of the cover or the engine side. Then fit a new gasket. They usually aren't too expensive but it does vary from model to model.

How do I change clutch cover gasket on my suzuki? do I need to use any sealants together with gasket, and do I need to use a torque wrench to do the bolts up to a certain pressure?

hi fairly easy job, drain engine oil,, undo all the fixing screws, remove cluth cover, +clean away old gasket, it is important you clean this to a high standard on both faces using a sharp object like chissel or gasket scraper, do not make deep markings in cases, when sattisfied replace gasket on a clean dry surface, do not use sealent as this will soften the gasket and in may push out, if you have damaged case surfaces then you may apply a small amount of sealent around the affected area, replace all screws and tighten aprox 6ftlbs however feel how tight they are on removal and retighten to same torque, regards paul

Water pump

Hello nedy...if you have the V6 engine, it will require the removal of the timing chain cover to access the water pump. The water pump is mounted to the engine block with 4 bolts. It is recommended that the bolts be replaced due to electrolysis (steel bolt in aluminum block) Replace all gaskets and o-ring seals as well.
While you are in there, you can inspect the timing chains, it has 3..and the chain tensioners. A Haynes repair manual would be helpful on this project and will have the correct torque specs.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate mr a fixya.

How to tight the chain

The drive chain for your motorcycle should have no more than a 1/2 of play in it. Place the chain with the motor shut off between your thumb and fore finger. if you can move it up or down anymore than a 1/2, then you'll need to tighten it. Adjust both sides of the chain tensioner equally, and you should be set.
