If it is pinging under load, your timing is not correct. It may be that the cam timing is not correct (belt installed incorrectly) or the ignition timing is off. (distriutor not timed properly) If you did not loosen or remove the distributor, I would re-check the cam timing first.

Please reset the base ignition timing following instruction below. If this does not resolve ping, take the car on a trip to clear out any carbon buildup on pistons (100+ miles). If car still pings, try premium fuel.

1988-95 Fuel Injected Prelude and 1990-95 Accord
The ignition timing on these cars is controlled by the engine computer. It should not be necessary to routinely reset the timing during other maintenance work. On the Accord V-6, the timing is not adjustable. However, ignition timing can be checked using this procedure.

  1. Remove the rubber cap from the timing window on the engine (except on 1994-95 Accords).
  2. Start the engine and allow it to warm up. The engine is fully warmed when the cooling fans come on at least once. Switch the ignition OFF .
  3. Locate the service check connector and, if applicable, remove the cap. On 1988-91 Preludes, the cap is yellow and the connector is located next to the vacuum control box in the engine compartment. On 1992-95 Preludes, the service connector is located under the middle of the dash. On 1990-93 Accords, the connector is blue and is located behind the right front kick panel, under the dashboard. On 1994-95 Accords, the service connector is located behind the glove box. Use a jumper wire to connect the two terminals of the service connector.

  1. Following the manufacturers instructions, connect a timing light to the engine. The positive and negative leads connect to their corresponding battery terminals and the spark plug lead to No. 1 spark plug wire.
  2. Make sure that all wires are clear of the cooling fan and hot exhaust manifolds.
  3. Set the parking brake and block the front wheels. Start the engine. Check that the idle speed is set to specifications.
  4. Point the timing light at the timing marks. On all models except 1994-95 Accords, the marks are on the flywheel. On the 1994-95 Accords, the timing marks are on the crankshaft pulley. When the engine is idling, the red mark must align with the pointer. Some timing marks are indicated by 3 lines; the center one must be aligned with the pointer.

Your camshaft timing is most likely off. I would start there. Make sure your gears are pointing each other. It needs to be right on. If you are off one tooth it will run really bad

Renault Megane 2000 Model Classic 16 Valve Rxe, engine ping after cambelt has been replaced. No power on the engine


pinging in the engine is detonation caused fro wrong air fuel mixture for the accelerator opening and engine load. It is controlled by knock sensors that adjust the mixture in the CPU .IT has nothing to do with valve timing but may be affected by ignition timing . I would be having a compression test done to check for bent valves ( bent during the belt replacement). Have the cam timing re checked as it may be still out a bit.

I have a 2002 Kia sportage 2wd the timing belt broke I replaced it my self. Engine started no knocks or anything but the timing belt creeps backward on the cams and rub the wall of the cover. What did I do...


A pulley or the tensioner isnt straight. Maybe why the old one broke?? you want to replace anything the belt touches while you have it apart. pulleys, tensioner, water pump.

Pinging noise from the the engine


Pinging is a sign of low octane fuel in the tank or the engine may have jumped time if the vehicle has high mileage, I believe the Lincoln has a timing chain rather then a timing belt, the chain is much stronger and lasts at least double to triple the amount of mileage a belt lasts.
Have a shop run a timing strobe on the crank to see where your timing marks are in respect to the factory requirements, if the car is timed properly and there isn't anything wrong with the gas in the tank(try adding an octane booster to see if that helps allieviate the ping) then test the computer system for any possible codes, perhaps the 02 sensor is bad or the I.A.C.(Idle Air Control Motor) is defective causing the engine to run too lean and ping, a code stored in the computers memory will reveal this.

Honda died while on freeway


so you checked under the timing belt cover and found that your timing belt broke. you have an interference engine which means when the timing belt broke the pistons most likely hit against the valves which now means you most likely wil need valve/head replaced and t-belt replaced.

1994 Pathfinder,A/C belt broke;replaced it, but it will not start


A broken A/C belt should not have caused your engine to stall. It is possible that the timing belt failed, I hope not because it will probably need a valve job if it broke under power.
