Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Kia Optima 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 102000 miles
I replaced the crankshaft sensor on my friend's car and when I did, I noticed the timing belt had teeth missing off of it. The belt was really loose and pulled right off. Got the new sensor in but now can't get the new belt on. The engine is still in time, I just need to know how to release the tensioner to get the new timing belt on.
Unfortunately my friend removed the timing belt before I had a chance to line up the timing marks but I am sure the cam and crank sprcokets have not moved.
Also, the oil pump sprocket may have turned. Could that be a problem when I do get the new belt on?
