1996 Acura TL Repair Question
I have a 2.5 that's running ruff changed timing belt and plugs
Here are the marks. Remember to turn the crankshaft counterclockwise 2 complete turns and verify markings are correct.
Thanks very much I will try turning the crankshaft 2 times
My cam shaft marks do not match the corners off the head does it matter if the word up , up or down
Yes it matters and it is a must to get it in position, being a 5 cylinder engine.
Ok thanks again
When installin the belt, some compendsation must be made for the camshaft sprocket as the belt is loose and when adjusted, the tension would change the camshaft and crankshaft positions so you should turn the camshaft at least 1/2 a notch counterclockwise to enable you to install the belt.
Thanks . I think that it may have bent valve ,did everything you said and it still has a bad skip or rough idle
Check the valve clearances and engine compression. If any valve clearance is excessively large, you might have bent a valve. Did you turn the camshaft excessive at any one time when timing belt was off?
Were spark wires checked? Are the spark plugs gapped corectly?
Good morning I turned the cam shaft it was a little stubborn but it did turn , changed the plugs gap them .044 the wires I haven't changed yet planning to this morning and the compression
Thanks a lot you have been very helpful
You're welcome. Hope it is nothing serious.
