How to Install Timing Belt?


Installing a timing belt is no easy task, in my truck it is an 8 hour job with my mechanic. I would suggest that you take a drive over to your local auto parts or an Auto Zone and ask for the correct belt and tools to change it. They can give you some advice and guidance on changing it as well. I must tell you though that it will depend on the type of car or truck you own. In mine they need to take out the whole top part of my engine, so like I said, it is not an easy task. You can find more information here:

To install a timing belt requires a lot of time and patience. The timing belt in most cars is located behind the water pump on the front of the engine. You have to take a lot of parts off to get to it. To insure you are placing the timing belt back on the proper way check out some books on your make and model car that give step by step directions on placement. As each car is different and the timing belt is different in each car.
