  1. Position the LH timing chain on the camshaft sprocket with the two copper (marked) chain links and the camshaft sprocket timing mark aligned.
  1. Position the RH (outer) timing chain on the crankshaft sprocket, aligning the copper (marked) link with the timing mark on the sprocket.
  1. Position the RH timing chain on the camshaft sprocket. Make sure the two copper (marked) links align with the camshaft sprocket timing mark.
  1. NOTE: LH shown; RH similar.
    Position the tensioner arms and tensioners, and install the bolts.

When is the timing chain of a 2007 1.5 4x4 daihatsu terios changed?

Timing chains do not need changed until they break or get so loose that they jump a tooth on the chain. But if you have a timing belt instead of a timing chain, it does need to be changed before it breaks. Replace the timing belt every 60,000 miles. Severe engine damage will occur if you do not replace the timing belt every 60,000 miles.

  • Push back plunger into tensioner body and hold it at the position by inserting stopper into body.
  • Install timing chain tensioner adjuster No.2 with new gasket. Tighten the timing chain tensioner adjuster No. 2 bolts to 8 ft. lbs. (11 Nm) and No. 2 nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  • Pull out stopper from timing chain tensioner adjuster No.2.
  • Turn crankshaft two rotations clockwise then align timing mark on crankshaft and timing mark on cylinder block.
  • Check that timing marks of cylinder head and cylinder block are in match with match marks on sprockets respectively.
  • Apply oil to timing chains, tensioner, tensioner adjusters, sprockets, and guides.
  • Install timing chain cover. Reverse removal sequence to install timing chain cover noting the following points:
    • Apply sealant "A" and "B" to area as shown.
      • "A": Sealant 99000-31250

      • "h": 0.16 inches (4mm)
    • Apply engine oil to oil seal lip, then install timing chain cover. Tighten bolts and nut to 8 ft. lbs. (11 Nm).
      NOTE Before installing timing chain cover, check that pin is securely fitted.
    • Before installing timing chain cover, check that pin is securely fitted.
  • Install alternator belt idler pulley. Tighten nut to 30.5 ft. lbs. (42 Nm).
  • Install alternator belt tensioner. Tighten bolts to 18.5 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  • Install water pump pulley.

did that cover it, surely not.
but if you get the FSM and read it or log in , you will not miss the photos and the complex sealing bs on this motor.

Replacing a daihatsu terios timing belt

the procedure of aligning all the timing marks before removing the belt will be the same . The necessity of not moving crank and cams without the belt being connected is still relevant. How ever there are some differences as to tensioning the belt and timing balance shafts . The biggest killer of rubber belts is oil so the oil seals (Cams shaft/ crank shaft should be also replaced and hydraulic tensioner if you have one). Idler pulleys do as much work as the belt so replacing them to replace the bearings is also a good move. . To come up to speed as to the differences a workshop manual for your vehicle is strongly recommended.
