Belt getting into timing cover

Please take a look if you have a moment... seems like my crank pulley is too far in. The timing cover looks like it's seated. I was taking a look to check an oil leak. It's tearing up my accessory belt in no time. What could be causing this?

Re: Belt getting into timing cover

To me it looks like your cover is not on correctly and sticking out causing the belt to rub against it. I doubt your crank pulley is the culprit.

^^ this

Did you recently do a t-belt change? As in is this happening since you recently worked on the car...

You say you were looking for a leak, as if it wasn't you who recently did some work, right?

It seems a belt rubbing the timing cover is not uncommon for the Honda car. But it certainly wasn't built that way. Something has changed. Either the cover warped from heat or something isn't seated properly.

Looking at the photo me thinks it's #2.



Look at the arrows in the photo. It appears the cover was not fastened properly.

Try popping that spot on all the way with a screwdriver handle or something blunt. You'll likely have to remove the wheel for best results.

Re: Belt getting into timing cover

You are correct sir. Thanks for the reply.

I pulled the thing the rest of the way apart, and it does appear that the retainer was left off. The timing cover pretty much came off in two pieces.

I recently bought the car after a timing belt change. A few of the timing cover bolts were very loose too.

Unfortunately everything was also dry behind the timing cover, so I think it's likely burning oil and not leaking.

Re: Belt getting into timing cover

It's supposed to be dry behind the cover...that's a good thing.

Do you have puddles under the car?

Yes, there were some leaks but I think it was all the power steering pump. I was hoping to find a front mainseal out since I can remedy that a lot easier than a rebuild. The car is not smoking so much that I would be losing as much oil as I am.

Re: Belt getting into timing cover

Try conventional oil if you're using synthetic.

High mileage products like max life or defy.
