SOURCE: changing a timing belt

timing is no easy task it has to be perfect ! off one way or the other could result in damaging the valve's so if your going to do this yourself takeyour time check and recheck your marks. most auto zones & advance auto's can print you a diagram.if not then they will sell a hanes repair manual.this would be your best way to go they are about $15 also always remember not to over tighten the timing belt. hope this helps thanks for choosing FixYa.

SOURCE: timing belt 2005 4 cylinder camry

Hello, A 2005 Camry with a 2.4 4 cylinder engine has a timing CHAIN not belt. I don't think that there is a routine maintenance schedule for this. If there is no audible noise coming from the chain area, you probably have nothing to worry about.
I hope this helps

dont worry about that you will have to turn the motor over 40 to 50 time before those timing belt marks line up again if your pulley marks line up correctly thats all you have to worry about

SOURCE: does 98 toyota camry have timing belt or chain?

Both the 4 and 6 cyl. engines in this car have belts. The 4's don't last as long because they lack a tensioner and get noisy. Toyotas for the most part do not get hurt when the belt breaks. non interference engines...nice huh?

SOURCE: concern with the timing belt 1997 toyota avalon xls

The maintenance interval is 60,000 miles, but they usally last quite a bit longer before they fail.
This is a non-interference motor , meaning the valves will not hit the pistons if the belt brakes.

2002 Mazda timing belt busted cames are not aligned how to align them to get back time

First off, we need to know the model Mazda you are referring to and the engine size installed. Also, many of these engines are known as interference engines. That means is the timing belt breaks and the cams get out of sync with the crankshaft, valves can and will be bent or broken, resulting in additional repair parts and costs.

My timing belt break on my toyota 5L engine and i would like to know how to time it back

How to time it back? I am pretty sure your engine is an interference engine. You may want to call toyota and find out. If your belt broke and your truck was moving you more than likely have engine damage (bent valves or worse).

Timing belts break over 100.000 mile I hope people change there oil. At3000 miles

That's not true for all Toyotas, almost all with timing belts but not the later V8 engines that have timing belts, these are interference engines so if the belt breaks there is going to be engine damage.

I was driving my 1991 honda accord an timing belt broke iam woorried that it might have damaged engine what should i look for i was going to replace belt an try to get back running any advice thanks

Honda engines are what they call interference engines. This means when a timing belt breaks, the pistons hit the valves and bend them. You will need to remove the cylinder head and get the bent valves replaced if you want it to run correctly. Impossible to know how many valves are bent, depends on how fast the engine was turning when the belt broke.

Very low miles 1995 Hyundai ELANTRA 1800 cc 16 dohc. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT frequently comes on. Stop engine, retart after light goes off...sometimes goes for hundred miles and three times new timing belt...

If the timing belt keeps breaking and bending valves, the timing belt and cylinder head repair is not being done correctly. It's as simple as that. Are you changing the tensioner and idler pullies when replacing the belt? Is it timed correctly? Was the timing belt tension adjusted properly? Were the cam journals checked for damage? If not, you are asking for another belt failure.

If you want to know why the check engine light is coming on, you will have to ask your engine computer. Every time the light comes on it is storing a fault code to tell you why. You must scan your engine control module to retrieve the fault code(s) so you can get it properly diagnosed and repaired.
