Timing belt

Well for all you who remember my older posts of help underhood noise, i finally found out the problem of what it was. its my timing belt tensioner. well i done some research and i found out that the automatic tensioners are known for failing prematurely. but i have also heard that the newer hydraulic tensioners are better and dont fail as easy. i was thinking about going to the manual conversion kit. if i get the manual conversion kit which i hear is from an h23a, i was going to replace the timing belt balancer and the timing belt itself. the belts i get will they have to be the ones for the h22a4 or the h23a? and would it be better to stay with the automatic tensioner or go to the manual conversion kit. thanks

Re: Timing belt

it will still be an h22 timing belt. and the manual swap is definitely the way to go

Re: Timing belt

I was going to get the conversion kit off this website Manual Tensioner Conversion Kit for H22A Series Engines :: Timing Belt Tensioner :: Belts :: Import Replacement Parts is there going to be any issues installing it or will it bolt up clean? has anyone ordered their conversion kit from here?

Re: Timing belt

That's where I got mine from, came with everything I needed.
Everything is pretty straightforward, and if you can find the writeup on doing the conversion that has pictures, that would probably help you the most. Also, download the manual that's available on this forum so you know all the torque specs for everything you take off and put on.

The only issue I ran into was a little pointless blockoff bracket the conversion kit comes with, and the timing belt itself. It's a very tight fit and if your experience ends up being similar, you're gonna have to work the hell out of it to get it on.

But you're exactly right-I had 2 NEW auto tensioners fail on me, so I'm absolutely an advocate of the conversion.

Mine was a complete bitch to get on as well after I did the conversion. I had to redo it a couple of times to get everything to line up perfectly.

Leave your Tbelt in the sun or over a heater duct so that when you go to put it on its a little easier to work with.

Do you mean the timing belt job? The first time I did mine it took a few hours, but now after replacing so many freakin auto-tensioners, I can do the whole thing in about 1hr with no instruction. If you haven't done if before and plan on keeping the car, I'd encourage you to do it.

This is the thread with pics I was talkin about;
http://www.preludepower.com/forums/s...d.php?t=229140

Read through that and see what you think.

Re: Timing belt

okay. I was going to try to do it but was not sure how it would go. Is there anything i could get/do to make the install easier? Any other tips or tricks besides keeping the belts warm so they are easier to stretch? Thanks i appreciate all the help :)

Re: Timing belt

In the DIY engine section of this forum it has a writeup, I think in addition to all the parts mentioned there (unless the PP writeup already covered it) is there is an adjuster bolt that needs to be replaced.

Other than that:
-timing belt
-timing belt tensioner (and all parts needed)
-balance shaft belt
-balance shaft tensioner (unless you want to reuse the old one)
-water pump


I'm in the same boat as you, and trying to work out all the parts I need to do the swap.

Re: Timing belt

It sucks and im hoping i can get it all fixed before it snaps or jumps timing, i will be in a world of hurt. It seems like a massive p.i.t.a and i dont really feel comfortable tearing into it since i have never done a timing belt on a vehicle before. but everywhere i have checked into was wanting like $312 and up for labor and i dont have the cash for that. good thing is since im going to school for my ase certification i can work on my car and have an instructor help when needed but not the whole time. i just wish i had a friend as a mechanic that owed me a favor lol

I'm in the same exact boat my friend.

I believe my auto tensioner is making noise and want to replace it before it snaps or jumps teeth. I have no money right now and I don't really know much about it or feel comfortable doing it myself, but I'm in automotive school and next session we cover timing belts, and hope I can do it then with all the proper tools, a lift, and an experienced instructor to help if I get in a snag.


Same boat lol.

Re: Timing belt

Yeah im not allowed to do anything to my vehicle unless i have done it in the class. i have the manual i downloaded it, and printed out the pages i needed and i have a general sense on how it should go. im trying to get some of the specialty tools to help the job go easier. i just hope that they will let me do it or i will have to wait till the snow melts and tackle it in my driveway lol

Re: Timing belt

It isn't really a problem of figuring it out. I pretty much have a handle on it, I just have a very limited budget and I am uncomfortable doing something new for the first time when its on MY car.

Plus before I came out here I had no mechanical knowledge, and very little mechanical experience. What I have done in school, I can do very well. I just haven't taken a single engine class yet.

I also have the same issue as the guy who posted above, I can't do it in school unless I've done it before, have instructions and oversight, etc.

well lets see i just started a few weeks ago. and i am pretty mechanically inclined its just that if i have not done something before im a little sketchy on it at first.

Re: Timing belt

Hmm...well I might as well bring up my thoughts, seeing as how someone else brought it up first.

I have no confidence in myself. Or at least not much. Which makes me second guess my decisions and abilities all the time.

Am I good at mechanic work? Dunno, I do extremely well in school, on the deans list every session, have recomendations from teachers, have a few certifications and have no trouble getting A's in class, getting all my assignments done, and am always ahead of the class when it comes to understanding how things work mechanically, like a transaxle for example.

Do I still doubt that I'm good enough or mechanically inclined/skilled? Pretty much every day. But thats most likely just me.

Can I do an engine overhaul? Tranmission rebuild? I'm sure I could, but doing it for the first time, especially when its on my car where I only have enough money for one shot at it, makes me very nervous. I'm also a little neurotic and want to make sure I have EVERY single part I need before starting it, and that I know EXACTLY what to do before I start. I can wing it sure, and jump in feet first before I completely understand it, but MY car is a different story.

The point of going to school and joining this forum is to learn. You gotta start somewhere. My dad had me convinced I had blinker fluid til I was 16, I've never gone to automotive school or taken an auto class for that matter, and now I'm in a position to help those who also have not, not give them **** for looking for help. If you have enough common sense to ask for help, you have the capacity to learn it.


Leading on from what I said before, if this is a car you're planning on keeping for awhile, it will save you hundreds of dollars to learn to do this. That kit from Import Replacement Parts comes with everything you need, you'll still use an H22 timing belt, and you'll want to order the crankshaft pulley removal tool (the hexagonal-shaped thing) because it will make your work SOOO much easier. Online it's about $40 shipped, at NAPA it's $50.

If you decide to tackle the job yourself, be sure to reference the maintenance manual that's available for download on this site (among other places), and follow those instructions. I made the mistake of trying to cut a corner and all it did was frustrate me- the step that instructs you to loosen the driver's side motor mount, I ignored because I didn't want to move the cruise control unit outta the way. In doing this, I deprived myself of the room I needed to easily fit the pulley tool between the pulley and the fender well and didn't realize for about half an hour that loosening the motor mount would help this.

When you get to the point where you're aligning all the timing marks, this is the most tedious step, and is MUCH easier if you have a friend helping you- one of you can be turning the crank while the other is looking through the little window on the front of the transmission that lets you see the flywheel timing mark. Whoever is looking for the timing mark has it easy cuz all they gotta do is say which way and how far to turn the crank. Whoever is turning the crank will realize that a 1/4 inch turn is equivalent to about 3 inches of turn on the flywheel, so you gotta make micro turns when you're getting the timing mark close.

I'd be happy to post more if you end up with more questions.

Re: Timing belt

Thats why were going to school to learn about it all. no one is born with this knowledge. so you have to start somewhere. i have found out a lot about replacing things by just trying to tear into it without having better knowledge about what i was doing and i ended making it worse than it was before. Thats why i am asking a lot about this to make sure i can get it done right the first time through. i have a good sense about it but when i have not done something to a vehicle before and no one else i know has done this kinda work im kinda left in the dark and get a little nervous since i know i barely have to money to try to fix it once and if i screw up it puts me in an even worse position than before. And yeah i know about the crankshaft pulley holder tool. i want to get this other tool that i seen it holds the cam gears together so they dont move around while the timing belt is off. not too sure what its called but i have done a lot of research about it and feel kinda confident tearing into it myself, as long as i have the repair manual pages next to me lol

Re: Timing belt

^^^ Yup, thats what makes me nervous. (lindso's post)


Its not so much doing the timing belt or understanding it, that I get, but there is little odds and ends to the job that I don't want to get into it and then realize I need a part or special tool. I like to have all my eggs in a basket before I jump in, especially when its my car.

Also I have no one here at school trustworthy to help me, like with aligning the flywheel timing marks. Which is also a problem.

well i did feel comfortable with replacing it until i seen this lol does it explain how to set the timing in the repair manual? if not i will have to wait longer to have my mechanic tear into it

Re: Timing belt

Of course it does.

Wait, don't you go to an automotive school? They should have alldata or mitchell shouldn't they? I know mine does, thats where I get all my procedures from.

Re: Timing belt

As far as I know, you don't. I'm pretty sure its just for making sure everything is at TDC before you remove the belt.

If your school has a mitchell subscription, go to OnDemand5.com: online auto repair, estimating, and service information and click login now. As long as you are on the schools computer network it should automatically log you in.

What school do you go to btw?

On the front of your transaxle where it mates with the block is a black rubber insert. Its got a funny shape to it.

Basically you pull it out so you can see the timing marks on the outer edge of the flywheel. There is a pointer in there and you line up the pointer with the timing marks on the flywheel and that will tell you when you are at TDC. There are also marks on the cam gears. The cams and crank need to be lined up/in time with each other before putting everything back together.

Re: Timing belt

Okay what im thinking is when you rotate the crankshaft to tdc for the first piston wont that set the mark on the flywheel at tdc
