Engine Mechanical problem
1993 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 118000 miles
Hi, the water pump leaks so I follow Haynes repair manual to replace the pump and might as well the timing belt. I'm not sure if skipping these two steps, disconnect battery and put transmission into neutral, can cause trouble i'm facing. Yes, the mark on camshaft and crankshaft were aligned, TDC.
when I put back the belt and manualy rotate crankshaft two complet rounds and get stuck so I turn back counter clockwise. The belt came off and now the real problem starts. With the valve cover and distributor cover off, I can see which one is at TDC. After hook the belt up, I can only turn half revolution, 180 deg. And it is stuck. With battery removed and put in neutral, the problem is still there.
with the camshaft belt removed, I turn camshaft for the next firing order and try to turn crankshaf but still stuck. I repeat this process until camshaft has been turn more than one revloution. It is STUCK.
please help to reindex the engine or get the timing back.
