Re: In search of help, 5th gen no start after timing belt replacement.

I'll check it today after I get off work. Its 6 a.m. here in ohio. Another possiblity from what I read is the ecu malfunctioning. Is there a way to test it?

I'll have to check when I get off of work. After some research online I found it can also lead me in the direction of a bad ecu or a sensor gone bad in the distributor?

From parts stores? Its Denso and I believe that's the original manufacturer of the crank position sensor for our cars.

Re: In search of help, 5th gen no start after timing belt replacement.

You're not running the correct crank gear and balance shaft gear for the crank position sensor to get a magnetic reading.

Re: In search of help, 5th gen no start after timing belt replacement.

I'll have to double check the gears to make sure. I've read that people have left the balance shaft gear off so does the gear matter still for that? And what's the difference between gears?

Re: In search of help, 5th gen no start after timing belt replacement.

Yes even if you're not running a balance shaft belt - you need that crank gear in place. The crank position sensor reads off of the crank gears for both the timing belt and balance belt. So there is a magnetic sensor facing each gear.

The improper gears do not have the correctly spaced "spokes" that the sensor looks for to get its reading. If I come across the incorrect gears Friday, i'll remove the lower timing cover of the motor I have on a stand and show for comparison.

Re: In search of help, 5th gen no start after timing belt replacement.

Okay thank you I will look to make sure of the gears when you send the pictures. Are there any markings like "P13" that would indicate it is from my a4?

Re: In search of help, 5th gen no start after timing belt replacement.

I see what you're saying. The crank gear for the timing belt had the flange on the back for the camshaft sensor, and the balance shaft gear has more spokes on it than an OBD1 gear. I have the correct crank gear on but not the correct balance shaft gear.

Thankfully the balance shaft belt is very simple to remove and swap that gear. Be sure everything is set to TDC!


That should resolve your starting issues. - just realized my inbox was full.

Re: In search of help, 5th gen no start after timing belt replacement.

Yesterday I got them swapper out and it runs great. Fixed my ball joint and drove it down the road. Thank you all for helping me with everything. I have only two issues now, it doesn't go into vtec and my coolant temperature sensor broke off in the head. I tried everything to remove but there still part of the sensor left in the threads. Any ideas?

Re: In search of help, 5th gen no start after timing belt replacement.

If you still have a Sears store, they used to carry "drill outs" where the drill bit actually bit into the broken screw and you drilled in reverse.

Another option is to drill the hole a bit oversize and insert a "heli-coil' from Fastenal and that will act as new threads for your next sensor.
Kinda pricey so those are a last resort, but there are thousands of hot rods out there with those keeping parts clamped together when threads got stripped.

Re: In search of help, 5th gen no start after timing belt replacement.

I got the sensor in thankfully, now I have bigger issues.. I'm burning oil. When I accelerate it throws out a decent amount of blue smoke. It's not always constant, but it definitely does. Could it be valve seals, oils rings, or PCV? I just replaced the pcv yo see if it helped. Are they supposed to rattle? My old one did but it seemed clogged. I thought it was bad and it was only a 5 dollar part. The new one still rattles though.. checked compression and my numbers were 149, 155, 160, 155. Dry test. Didn't do a wet test yet.

Re: In search of help, 5th gen no start after timing belt replacement.

Hope its "only" valve seals since you have to tear whole engine apart if its piston rings and its really expensive (that means full rebuild and its wise to new valve seals then also anyway)

No oil leaks?
