Also, I change the car battery & change the circuit opening relay it clicks while I turn the ignition key & check all the fuses are still intact All around. I also Clean the distributor cap & plugs.

To: KHLow2008,
I check on the link you gave/type to me & it was legit to check it & experience it out. Also, when I totally took out the timing cover & check the top crank wheel above it didn't move nor rotate when I crank it to see movement? What do I do now? Do I open also to check the lower level of the belt below to see it the timing belt is warp out? & May I kindly know how to do the (TDC) for My Vehicle? Thank you.

When the top do not move while the crankshaft is being turned, the timing belt is bad. Push at the belt to check for deflection and if it has a lot of slack, the belt has stripped a few tooth.

You would need to remove the crank pulley and lower cover to replace the belt.

Diagram shows the timing marks.

To: KHLow2008,
If I don't have a Adjustable Wrench On Me?
Is it Possible to Turn the Gear Wheel on Top that Holds the Timing Belt With A Socket Wrench? To (TDC) it? With The Diagram You Send to Me?

Thank You!

Yes, you can use the bolt holding the cam sprocket to turn the camshaft. Turn the vrank away from TDC by about 20 degrees first and after getting the camshaft timing correct, turn the crank back to TDC.

Ok sorry about that. My minor mistake was I took out the belt already & didn't check the top cam if it was aligned? I only align the bottom part crankshaft cam with the marker without the belt attached. All the other parts have been detach, Did I make a Error?
