Timing belt replacement

Well guys, I collected these parts: Timing belt, valve cover gasket, and the Kaizen Speed Tensioner.

My plan was to jack up the car, take off the wheel, remove the valve cover, then the upper timing belt cover, then from the top and from underneath the car I would like to remove the bottom timing cover I would use paint and mark the placement of all the gears. I take off the timing belt from the top and remove it all together. Take off the tensioner and put on the KS one. I was then going to put everything back together in reverse order. I've read other DIY but they are replacing the water pump and all the seals.

Am I missing anything?

Re: Timing belt replacement

I'd highly highlyyyy suggest you change all the oil seals and water pump while you have all that torn apart, as well as the tensioners. Cuz if they fail (they eventually WILL!!!) 500 miles after you do the job, your gonna be kicking yourself.


There's no need for the paint, unless you really wanna be sure of yourself. The crank will be self-explanatory when its @ TDC, the front BS gear and plate behind it have a line on each of them that you line up with each other, and the rear BS, you shove a long bolt/screwdriver thru an access hole that then goes thru a hole in the BS when its lined up.

Re: Timing belt replacement

Yeah man don't skimp on it. It's a PITA to get in there and change things in the first place, you may as well just do the complete job since you're gonna have it apart anyway.

Re: Timing belt replacement

If you're diving in, be sure to replace the water pump and the oil seals. Do the job right the first time, you won't regret it!

Re: Timing belt replacement

I have a Honda water pump with about ~13,000mi on it I'll give you for $10 if you're comfortable using it. I got it through NAPA thinking it would be some other manufacturer but it came in Honda packaging.

Re: Timing belt replacement

Hmmm I dunno about that cheap. Maybe if you don't go Honda parts. But I didn't do that so all my stuff was closer to $400. Hey it's the thought that counts, right?
