Timing belt

How hard is it to change the timing belt. I have a h22a1 and my water pump is leaking. I can't find a like any where and the dealer wants like 600 to change it.

Re: Timing belt

I have a empty shop bay that I can do it in I have a basic set of tools I just camt find a like to see how to do it and do I HAVE to change the tensioner? I don't want to screw up my engine it has 210000 miles on it and I want to keep driving it. I swaped and engine from a jetski does that count as experience ?

Timing Belt Write Up

Yes, you HAVE to change your auto-tensioner. Either to a new auto (not recommended) or to an H23 manual tensioner.

The auto-tensioners are known to fail, which generally causes a loose t-belt, skipped teeth and/or bent valves.

Since you haven't said whether you have a 4th or 5th gen, go to that respective gen's FAQ thread and d/l the online manual. It has absolutely everything you need.
But since you have an H22's which came with auto tensioners that are notorious for failing, its HIGHLY recommended that you convert to an H23's manual tensioner, BTW


BTW what kinda ski?? I'm having problems with my STX 1100 right now, pretty sure I burnt out the EMM. $600 to repair it, FML

Re: Timing belt

What would happen if I kept my tensioner that is on there now. I don't know what it is cause I do not want to tear in to the engine until I know what to do. It has not failed yet if it is a auto tesioner. But the engine has 209*** miles so i hope who had it before changed the tensioner.

If you keep your tensioner, (which is most likely still an auto tensioner), even if it's a replaced auto tensioner, it will still fail. And you will bend valves.

Happens all the time. Someone else just joined a forum and when he was told by members to replace the tensioner with a manual tensioner at the same time he was doing the timing belt, he did not listen. A week later the tensioner failed and he had to rebuild his head.

Up to you.

I understand you're probably trying to save money. But spend $100 now, and you'll avoid a costly mistake.

They may not. Depends on shop policies but many won't let you in the bays for insurance purposes.

Yes, that is the auto-tensioner. EVERY h22 (-a1, -a3. -a4, -a8, etc.) came with that tensioner and is known to be faulty.

That is why we swap that tensioner for the tensioner off of an h23. Because it is adjusted manually and not just by a spring keeping the tension.

Re: Timing belt

We all do the best we can to protect our vehicles and we all make sure to keep them maintained against all possible threats and dangers. However, it should not be surprising to learn that one of the greatest dangers to high mileage cars is also one of the least well known. While we expect and try to prevent cases of engine or transmission failure, the death of many older or high mileage cars is nothing other than a failure of the timing belt. However, in order to understand what makes the timing belt service so important and how we can prevent it from failing, we first need to learn a little bit about what it does and what we should expect from specific car models when it comes to life expectancy of the belt.
The timing belt serves a very important part when it comes to making your engine run. Namely, the timing belt is the belt that controls the camshafts in your engine and keeps the entire operation running smoothly. Note that timing belts are present in engines with overhead cams, and are essential to keep these cams turning at the right time in order to keep the engine running. Remember that a camshaft is the shaft that opens and loses the intake and exhaust valves in your engine, both letting air in to create combustion, and venting the exhaust that comes from those explosions. A timing belt must be properly calibrated in order to move in time with the motion of the pistons.

When it comes to engines, the two most important terms to remember when talking about timing belts are "interference" engines and "non-interference" engines. Interference engines have a very, very small amount of space between the valves and pistons, while non-interference engines tend to have a lot more room.

The different types of engines make a major difference when figuring out how bad a timing belt failure can be for your engine. In an interference engine, with little space between the valves and pistons, a slip or break in the belt can send a piston flying into an open valve. When this happens, it is similar to the engine self-destructing, as it will soon become nothing more than an unusable mess of metal. This is not to say, however, that a timing belt failure in a non-interference engine will not be damaging, as it can still cause a great deal of damage to many engine components. Generally speaking, however, a timing belt failure in a non-interference engine will not cripple the motor.

Regardless of what type of motor is present in your car, a failure in the timing belt will cause the engine to suddenly stop. This means that your car will suddenly stop running and you will not be able to get it started again. In all cases, this means calling a tow truck to come pick up your now non-running vehicle.

If all of this sounds like a nightmare, that's because it can really urn out to be one. Luckily though, timing belt failure is somewhat easy to prevent, and although it may not be the cheapest or easiest operation in the world, it is definitely a better option that purchasing either a new car or a new engine.

Of course, checking to see when your timing belt was last changed is not always the easiest task either a good auto repair shop help you to diagnose condition of your timing belt. If you have owned your car, and have ever had it replaced in the past, you should have the mileage written down as to when it was changed. If, though, you purchased your car used, there may be a sticker located under the hood of your car that gives the mileage of the last change. If you cannot find this sticker, than it may be better to have the belt changed, just to be on the safe side. If you have the owners manual for your vehicle, it should detail when the belt should be changed.

If you have trouble finding out when exactly the belt should be changed; you could consult either a local mechanic or contact a dealership for the exact number. A good general rule of thumb is that a timing belt should be changed every 60,000 to 75,000 miles, although some belts are designed to last up to 100,000 miles before requiring a change. Regardless though, it is best not to let a belt go more than 80,000 miles or so, even if the recommended change point is a lot higher. Changing your belt early is definitely a lot safer for your engine, and a little money out of pocket can save you a lot of money and a new car in the long run.

Remember, even though you may get your oil changed every 3,000 miles, and do all of your scheduled repair services, nothing can save you from a timing belt failure. Make sure to get your timing belt replaced regularly and by a certified mechanic. It can mean the different between a good running car and useless piece of metal.

I'm thinking about replacing my timing belts. Is it OK to go for five years. Anybody know for sure?
