    Timing belt changed, hydraulic tensioner now broken?

    First a disclaimer,. I'm not a car expert. So, I took the car in for a 120k and paid mint for a timing belt change, AC condenser repair, O2 sensor replacement, air flow mass sensor, and a tuneup. The car drove fine for a few days and then I.

    If you just had the belt changed rather than a full kit, which would include a new tensioner, then this could explain the breakage. It would be no ones fault, but the mechanic who carried out.

    timing belt?

    I have a 95 accord 2. 2liter with 150,000 miles. The car leaked all of it's oil onto the pavement (after parking the vehicle), and I had the car towed to a mechanic that said its sounds like a seal was blown and "let's change the timing belt and.

    The Timing Belt on a Honda is adjusted with an automatic tensioner. It is quite possible the job was not done correctly and the timing marks were not lined up properly, causing the timing to be.

    2001 VW Beetle 2.0 Timing Belt and Tensioner?

    I bought used a VW Beetle with 90,000 miles for 4500 dlls. Great aesthetic condition. Test drove it. Acceleration felt fine. Transmission shifts good, etc. Dealer gave me 2000 mile warranty on engine and tranny, so I thought it was a fair deal.

    The tensioner retains pressure on the belt at all times. Engine running or off. The tensioner is shot and I bet the belt is bad. Change both. The water pump is in proximity to the belt/tensioner.

    Fixing Misaligned Timing Belt?

    The timing belt on my car is off a tooth. How would i go about fixing this.

    Timing belts can't move so if it is out it has been set like that. If it did move off the tooth while running then the car would stop as the belt would be stripped. Remove the timing belt cover.

    Replacing timing belt?

    I have a 2000 Toyota Avalon. The manual says to replace the timing belt at 90,000 miles. Should I use a Toyota dealer or is this something most mechanics can handle. Should I have anything else done at the same time.

    You NEED to change the belt. It's not a suggestion. The car doesn't run badly when the belt gets old. You may or may not hear a noise at all in a quiet car like that. Your first indication of.

    Do I really need a new timing belt tensioner?

    I have a 2008 Suzuki Forenza with about 64,000 miles. Today I called the dealer to ask about the cost of replacing the timing belt and without even asking how many miles I had she told me that I would need a new tensioner for it. Is that normal.

    you can try to get it covered under warranty, but probably not. If the tensioner had failed, it would be covered, but since it is just time to replace it, probably not. and yes, it is a good.
