You can go to on the internet to

have the model number of your mower handy, you will need it and you can d/l the belt diagram. ts4500 is not the model number. model number is 3 digits then a period, then more numbers. good luck

Wondering if possible bad drive pulley

Belt coming off or slipping?

Pulleys are made of steel, belts are made of a reinforced rubber compound. In a fight guess who wins? :>)

Check the belt, spray it with Drive Belt Conditioner. Make sure the tension is correct.

but waterpumps can be easy to hard.
some engines real hard, timing belt off, or worse.

ill pick one at random for you, dice rolled.
bam. lets go
usa car
usa (so can you, so can Anyone with 15 bucks)
i click year, and camry.
i then click engine cooling.
it says:>>>>

  1. Drain the engine coolant.
  2. Disconnect the lower radiator hose at the water inlet.
  3. Disconnect the timing belt from the water pump pulley.
  4. Remove the bolt holding the inlet pipe to the alternator belt adjusting bar and then remove the inlet pipe and O-ring.
  5. Remove the water inlet and thermostat.

Where is crank sensor on mitsubishi colt

Nick, this is mostly an educated guess, Mitsubishi made so many engines, dependent and model and geography. But, MOST are located on the front of the engine(where the belt is) under or near the water pump. Access is from beneath the car. The other location, although unlikely, would be on the bell housing next to the engine. Helpful Hint>>>Sometimes and in some models, low battery voltage or a weak starter can trigger a Crankshaft Position Sensor code. before replacing any parts, recharge or replaced battery.

Need To no what size bearing puller I need to use to replace my right hand side bearing for a 2001 grand vitra 2.5litre and how to do it .

no end of car stated, now that makes this impossible
but ill guess front. and guess 2 , 4wd ,?????????
and at what step in process you got stuck>????

all that , just all that..
all that is in the FSM, ever heard off a factory service manual.
or this.
$4 bucks to look.
before buying $500 suzuki tools, be it known , generic tools work.

the wheel bearing
ill paste some clues.
I have a printed FSM. (and all above)
here is the factory page

the bearing are never replaced in this car, you replace the whole hub.
that is how its done. if you want to break the rules.
then you get to work blind, what bearings are there, , its not publish.
then you get to find that out, and then find a shop to presses them in
and after all that ,its 5x the cost of a hub.

see end of this page for GV front hubs

see the list of complex options there. see that.?
2wd, 4wd,?
my guess is yours is 4wd, guess 2.
and uses photo 10 there.

see grapic 10 ,see part id 11?
you pull that off with any slide (slam) hammer made.
then remove the looking ring with special tool used by suzuki
since 1989
then the hub falls off. or if in salt belt,(wiki that)you again
use the slide hammer and bam its off

Pit fall 1,
if you fail to set the nut ring 11 to 156 (or to spec) foot/pounds torque
the bearing will fail in 1000 miles.
see TIMKEN bearing tests proof of that fact, it is a fact.
for all CRUSH bearings.....

How to set the timing 98 Isuzu Amigo 2.2

i feel the pain of owning any ISUZU.
(suzuki, Daewoo,yugo, etc)
1994 the Amigo was dropped from sales in the USA>
so you are non USA> (a key factor) and on engine.
2.2-liter petrol (X22XE)
or the Europe sold
2.2-liter diesel (X22DTH)

perlexing how 2.2. means nothing.?

so out comes my wild dice and roll>>>>>>>> drum roll......

guess 2 is cam. timing. not diesel pump time or spark.
is this engine Interference type, (always check that first)
  • 2.2L Diesel Interference
  • 2.2L Gasoline Interference
them means never crank the motor, until 100% sure cam is timed right or you will bend over the valves ( that is why I say 1st) see>?
or worse , !
Gas &cam , change timing belt, (not stated, and is key)
ok, we go
spark 2.2L USA> (no diesel here, )
These engines are equipped with a Distributorless Ignition System (DIS). No adjustment is possible.

The chapter on timing belt :.
there are 22 steps
ill presume you have all 22 and just need the marks photos.
and that you have a cam locking tool. ???? seen in step 12.
and step 15? the super secret, 4mm tension step for tooth? offset???
ok here is the drawing 1 or 2.
did i guess right>???

Free belt diagrams

which engine, WE CANT GUESS THAT < EVER !
ever google, ?
ever look at PONTIAC ACTUAL>>

3.8L or 5.3L
yours fell off?
the sticker near radiator for belt direction missing.
the operators guide fails to show it so is FSM only coverage.
i guess GM belts last for ever. or owners never change them.

id bet if you GOOGLE your engine, it would show vast hits.
I bet.

Golf GT TDI 140 2007 replaced cam belt in 2009/45k miles , now 92k miles and 4 years on ,can i get another year out of it ?

You probably can get another year out of it, but the consequences of it failing mean you probably need a new engine. I'd be safe and get it replaced. Better spend little money now rather than A LOT if you guess wrong. Hope this helps.

Power steering not working tried adding power steering fluid didn't work.

The Pontiac power steering pump run off a shaft driven and not belt driven. This means that when the steering system is stressed instead of the belt slipping it puts a lot of stress on that shaft and could cause that to break. If nothing seems to effect the power steering I would have to guess that this is what happened and the power steering pump will have to be replaced.
