Probably not but if may have damaged the timing belt and put the valve timing out and that would prevent the engine from starting

1998 kia sportage 4WD engine turns but wont turn over (dosent even try) it just makes a winding sound and leaking coolant around harmonic balancer?


Sounds like your water pump leaking and a broken timing belt. The water pump runs off the timing belt, and sounds like your water pump took out the belt. The winding noise you hear sounds like the engine crank turning but not the cam shaft, broken belt, no compression. Have someone watch the harmonic while you try to start it. If it's turning, that's your problem.

Sounds as though the key came out of the crank

You have to raise it up & support it with jack stands

The cams play no role at all here
The balancer is driven by the crankshaft

2001 Kia Optima Vibration.I took it to the shop, they replace the timing belt and balancer shaft belt and components and it still vibrates. What is the cause ? The vibration is so severe it rattles the car...


Hello
Have they replaced the harmonic balancer (vibration dampener) on the crankshaft. I wouldve also made sure that thier wasnt a motor or a transmission mount that was bad or even possibly a broken exhaust hanger allowing the exhaust to sit or rub on the chassis, hopefully they checked these things before installing a timing belt which usaually causes a noise rather then a vibration
Good luck

My balance shaft belt broke while I was driving. It stripped some of the teeth off the timing belt and Im pretty sure it jumped time. I need a diagram to show the timing marks and how to get it back in...


see diagrams from autozone.com. Cam sprocket has an "UP" label, but also 2 scribes on the sides to align to upper head surface. The critical part of the job is keeping tension on the side of the belt that is opposite from the tensioner as the tensioner is released onto the belt. The timing marks must be aligned when the job is done.

2bd7a51.jpg
4256a1c.gif To install:

  1. Install the camshaft timing sprocket so that the UP mark is up and the TDC marks are parallel to the cylinder head gasket surface. Install the key and tighten the bolt to 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
  2. Install the crankshaft sprocket so that the TDC mark aligns with the pointer on the oil pump. Install the spacers with their concave surfaces facing in. Install the key. If equipped, install the TDC sensor assembly back into position before installing the timing belt.
  3. Install and tension the timing belt. Use a 6 x 1.0 mm x 25 mm bolt threaded through the cam belt tensioner plate to temporarily hold the tensioner.
  4. Temporarily install the crankshaft pulley and rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise 5-6 turns to be sure the belt is properly seated.
  5. Set the No. 1 piston at TDC for its compression stroke.



WARNING If any binding is felt when adjusting the timing belt tension by turning the crankshaft, STOP turning the engine, because the pistons may be hitting the valves.

  1. Rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise so that the camshaft pulley moves only 3 teeth beyond its TDC mark.
  2. Loosen, then retighten the temporary cam belt tensioner bolt.
  3. If the rear balance shaft sprocket/gear case assembly was removed, perform the following:
    1. If the rear balance shaft was moved, rotate the balance shaft until the 6 x 1.0mm x 100 mm bolt can be installed into the maintenance hole to the scribed line.
    2. Align the notch of the balance shaft sprocket edge with the pointer on the gear case. Install the rear balance shaft sprocket/gear case assembly using a new O-ring coated with fresh engine oil. The balance shaft sprocket should be installed in the TDC position. The pointer on the gear should align with the pointer on the oil pump housing plate.
    3. Tighten the mounting bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).

  4. If the front balance shaft sprocket was removed, perform the following:
    1. Install a suitable and sturdy screw driver or drift through the maintenance hole in the shaft behind the sprocket to hold the front balance shaft.
    2. Install the front balance shaft sprocket and mounting nut. Torque the nut to 22 ft. lbs. (29 Nm).

  5. Make sure the balance shafts and crankshaft are in the TDC position.
  6. Remove the crankshaft pulley, and if removed, install the balance shaft belt drive sprocket.
  7. Install the balance shaft belt, making sure the balance shafts and sprockets are still in the TDC position.
  8. If removed, install the balance shaft belt tensioner and tension the balance shaft belt.
  9. Loosen, then retighten the tensioner adjusting nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  10. Remove the 6 x 1.0mm x 100mm rear balance shaft holding bolt.
  11. Temporarily install the crankshaft pulley and rotate the crankshaft 2 revolutions counterclockwise, stopping at TDC.



WARNING If any resistance is felt, stop immediately and determine the cause.

  1. Recheck that all of the TDC marks align for both the camshaft and balance shafts.
  2. Loosen, then retighten the tensioner adjusting nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  3. Remove the 6 x 1.0 mm x 25 mm bolt used to secure the camshaft timing belt tensioner.
  4. Remove the crankshaft pulley and install the lower cover.
  5. Install the crankshaft pulley, lubricate the bolt threads and both sides of the crankshaft pulley bolt with fresh engine oil and tighten the crankshaft pulley bolt to 181 ft. lbs. (245 Nm). Do Not use an impact wrench.

            1. Install the upper timing cover and the valve cover. Be sure the seals are properly seated.
            2. Install the side engine mount. Tighten the through-bolt to 47 ft. lbs. (64 Nm). Tighten the mount nut and bolt to 40 ft. lbs. (55 Nm) each.
            3. Remove the floor jack.
            4. Install and tension the alternator belt.
            5. Install the power steering pump and tension its belt.
            6. Install the splash shields.
            7. Reconnect the positive and negative battery cables. Enter the radio security code.
            8. Check engine operation.

            Balancer shaft came apart ???????? crankshaft pulley keeps throwing balancer car won't accelerate balencer shaft timing marks keep coming off on recheck of timing belt new tps ,converter howlled for test...


            Sounds like the harmonic balancer - that also serves as the timing on a non distributor car has stripped the threads out. This usually - not always but usually requires a new crank shaft. Might be cheaper to just get a used engine.
            take down the vin number and ask the local dealer if there have been any recalls or service bulletins

            hi the balance shaft has to set by removing the bolt in the engine block that is in line with the front of the balance shaft the get a 6mm bolt that is 100mm long slide it into the hole where you revoved the bolt turn the balance shaft keeping a slight pressure on the bolt until it locates the hole in the shaft and locks it up then if you look at the oil pump there is a mark on the top of the housing and the oil pumps shaft just line them up stick your belt on tension and remove the locking bolt yates210456
