I changed my timing belt and I think I did it right but
i have a lifter type sound now since I changed it
it is not all the time but once I have made speed and I tap on the gas as I am driving their is a liter noise
is because the belt is new
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes

Hi there,

Changing the timing belt if done correctly will not induce any valve noise, I would re check the timing marks and if all is ok, I would think that you have a faulty valve lash adjuster, try an engine flush as this sometime helps with sticky lash adjusters.
