Do you have a spark ? if not then check the crank angle sensor is not damaged as it often gets whacked when the belts get broken - run a fault code check if not sure as that will tell you straight away

You should check the compression. its the easiest way to make sure you didn't bend valves. alot of times when the 'B' belt breaks, it gets sandwiched between the 'A' belt and crank sprocket, causing it to jump time.

97 Honda civic won't start. Has had timing belt and pulley replaced along with rotor button

Did the timing belt break? Are you 100% that it is "in time" correctly? Does it spin over effortlessly? If so,do a compression check,and make sure you dont have any bent/broken valves,or blown head gasket.

Do i have 2 remove the timing belt on a 4g63 sohc to replace the water pump

I'm not familiar with the exact model, but I have never seen an engine design that would require you to remove the timing belt to replace the water pump. Most manufacturers recommend that the timing belt and the water pump be changed at the same time. They have similar failure times, and it's just easier to get to both at the same time.
You should probably take it to a shop and have both changed at the same time if you can afford it. I would not recommend you attempt to change the timing belt yourself, unless you really know what you are doing.

I suspect the water pump needs replacement, since there is liquid like fluid below engine. what are the steps one must take, to replace the water pump. Why is it not simple to do? Looks like alot of...

1.3L & 1.6L Engines
  1. Remove the timing belt cover, timing belt, tensioner, plate and spring.
  2. Remove the water pump mounting bolts.
  3. Remove the one (1.6L MFI engines) or two (1.3L and 1.6L TFI engines) small rubber seals from between the water pump and the oil pump, and the water pump and the cylinder head.
  4. If necessary for clearance, remove the oil level dipstick tube retaining bolt from the engine block and the alternator adjusting brace.

Do NOT use a prybar between the water pump housing and the engine block to separate the two components; this can cause scratches and/or gouges, which can prevent proper sealing.

  1. Pull the water pump off of the engine block. If the water pump is difficult to remove from the engine block, use a soft-faced mallet to tap the water pump housing until it loosens.

Do not disassemble the water pump; if the water pump is damaged or defective, the entire unit is replaced.

  1. Thoroughly clean the water pump gasket mating surfaces of old gasket material and corrosion.

The drive belt can be used to hold the fan stable while loosening the mounting fasteners

Loosen the fan bolts, then either remove the drive belt before the fan and shroud ...

... or wait to remove the belt, along with the water pump pulley

Once the cooling fan and shroud are removed, access can be gained to many of the engine components, including the water pump

To install:

  1. Along with a new gasket, install the water pump on the engine block. Tighten the water pump mounting bolts to 88-115 inch lbs. (10-13 Nm).
  2. On 1.3L and TFI 1.6L engines, install two new rubber seals: one between the water pump and oil pump, and the other between the water pump and the cylinder head. The MFI 1.6L engines only use one rubber seal, located between the water and oil pumps.

Be sure to install the two rubber seals between the water pump, oil pump and cylinder head before installing the timing belt cover-1.3L and 1.6L TFI engines

The 1.6L MFI engine uses only one rubber seal between the oil pump and water pump

  1. If removed, install the alternator adjusting brace and the oil level dipstick retaining

What steps do I take to change the water pump on a 2200 engine. and where is it located?

The water pump on the 5sfe 2.2L engine is in-line with the timing belt. Facing the car from the front, this is located on the right hand side under a two-piece plastic cover. You will be removing the engine support to access the water pump, so be sure to support the engine. Also replace your timing belt along with your water pump. If you need step-by-step, let me know. I will tell you how.

That car has the 4G64 engine in it. The manual below covers both the 4G63(DOHC) and 4G64(SOHC), but it should definitely help you get that timing set. Timing belt removal procedures start on page 33.

(P.S. this manual also includes the 4G63 engine, you can identify your engine by looking at the procedures for the Single OverHead Cam[or SOHC])

Change water pump in 1996 Isuzu Oasis

The Isuzu has a timing pump driven water pump, so if the timing belt is due to be replaced, both jobs are normally done at the same time along with replacing the timing belt tensioner pulley. It'a an "interference" type engine that bends the valves if the belt breaks and ruins the engine. The reason the shops want $700 is because they're doing a complete timing belt replacement to get to the water pump.
