Download CAUTION: This application is an interference engine. Do not rotate camshaft or crankshaft when timing belt is removed, or engine damage may occur. TIMING BELT NOTE: On some models, engine is equipped with a timing belt and timing chain. Inspect timing chain when replacing timing belt. Removal 1. Remove all drive belts and drive pulleys from crankshaft and water pump. Remove generator bolt, if necessary. Remove crankshaft pulley and water pump pulley. 2. Remove timing belt covers and gaskets, noting bolt lengths and locations. DO NOT rotate engine counterclockwise, as viewed from timing belt side of engine. Remove timing belt tensioner pulley. 3. Rotate engine clockwise to align all timing marks so No. 1 cylinder is at TDC of compression stroke. See Fig. 1 . If reusing belt, place mark on timing belt to indicate direction of belt rotation. Remove timing belt. Inspection Check belt teeth for cracks, damage, and oil contamination. Inspect all sprockets for damage. Check tensioner pulley and idler pulley for grease leakage and worn bearings. Replace components if damaged. Installation 1. Ensure camshaft and crankshaft timing marks are still aligned.
