There is an access plug in the upper portion of the timing cover so that the timing belt can be checked without removing entire cover. Check out this guide to help see how to change the belt with the timing marks

Please run down this guide and report back.

I work for a car dealership, so I have the mechanics there do the maintenance on my car. I told one of the mechanics that I thought it was time for my timingbelt/water pump to be changed. He later reported that after looking up the info on my car, that it has TWO timing belts or something to that effect. I've been trying to find out on the internet if this is true, but can't find anything on it. HELP!

Hi Carididdy,

Yes, there are indeed 2 belts, main timing and balancer belt.

Item 35 is balancer belt and 24 is the timing belt.

Have to measure the auto tensioner rod protrusion between auto tensioner housing and the point where it contacts the tensioner arm. The protrusion should be.150 -.177". Is this what you are talking about?

The issue is the time belt broke off, the protrusion of auto tensioner is fully deployed, since tensioner pulley bracket released at time of breakage. (Know I have to reload the auto tensioner). Is this the spec. Measurement that should be in place if I was to rebuild to OEM Specs.

Thanks

Timing marks below are for the 2.4L engine. Let me know if your engine size is different.

I am hoping you can help me figure out how to line up the timing marks on my Galant. On the upper pulley, there is a notch on one of the teeth and a circle on one of the spokes. I have a Haynes manual, but the manual does not seem specific and is very confusing. The manual also states there is a timing mark for the upper pulley on the engine case. I cannot find one in the same area the manual says on my vehicle, but I see a mark on the valve cover. Is the mark on the valve cover the correct one?

For the lower pulley, can you please advise where the timing marks are?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Timing belts wear from use and time. The only other thing that can cause it to break is if something locked up.
