TIMING BELT

1999 Honda Accord

Engine Mechanical problem

I am wanting to change the timing belt on my 99 accord. Its a 2.3 liter v- tech 4 cylinder. It looks like its on the right side of the engine with just the motor mount in its way. But when I follow the bottom hose it goes to the left side. Is the timing belt and water pump together?

The water pump is located under the timing belt covers. This is not like the old water pump that you may be thinking of that has the hose connected to it. The water pump on your vehicle moves the coolant around inside the engine block.

The timing belt should be on the right side as you face the vehicle. In general the replacement is rather easy but you must follow the right procedures and the one big stumbling block is the removal of the bolt on the crankshaft fly wheel.
