Tip Timing belt removal
Tech1
1.
Disconnect negative battery cable. Remove air cleaner assembly. Remove upper fan shroud. Relieve tension on serpentine drive belt tensioner and remove serpentine drive belt.
Remove 4 cooling fan assembly mounting nuts and remove cooling fan assembly. Remove cooling fan drive pulley. Remove serpentine drive belt idler pulley assembly. Remove serpentine
drive belt tensioner assembly.
3. On Rodeo, remove power steering pump with hoses attached, and set aside. On all models, using Crankshaft Holder (J-8614-01) or equivalent, hold crankshaft from turning and remove crankshaft
pulley bolt. Remove crankshaft pulley.
Disconnect harness connector from right side timing belt cover (if equipped). Remove timing belt covers in this order: right, left, then lower. Remove fan bracket (if equipped).
On all models, rotate crankshaft to align timing marks. See Fig. 1 and Fig. 2
are aligned, No. 2 piston will be at TDC.
If reusing timing belt, mark belt with arrow to indicate original rotation direction. Also place mating marks on timing belt and camshaft sprockets for reassembly reference. Remove timing belt
tensioner, and set aside with push rod facing up. Remove timing belt.

Tip: Timing belt installation.
Tip: Conflicting info, proceed with caution.
Tech1
NOTE: This information outlines the proper steps to index the camshafts with
the crankshaft. In the event that camshaft timing has been disrupted, due to timing belt breakage or camshafts/crankshaft being rotated without a
timing belt, this is important prior to timing belt installation. Due to the gear-ration used by each camshaft pulley to drive the camshafts, engine
timing cannot be indexed conventionally.
To compress tensioner pusher, place in soft-jawed vice. Slowly compress tensioner pusher pin until it lines up with the two small holes in tensioner pusher housing. Insert a straightened heavy duty paper clip
through holes in housing. This will hold the pin in it's compressed position.
IMPORTANT: In the following procedure, the references to 9 or 12 O'clock positions
are based on deck plane of the cylinder deck-to-cylinder head mating
surface (as viewed from the front of the engine), and NOT relative to the
shop floor.

Please show step by step video on setting timming, after broken timming belt. I have set timming belt time after time and it runs only on high rpm, s with a bad miss and willnot stay on when foot is off accellarator. And also has low compestion on right side. PLEASE HELP.

If you've properly set the timing belt, and properly tensioned it, and are still having problems, it isn't the timing belt. I don't have access to a vehicle specific video on replacing the timing belt. I gave you what we have access to.
