Any ideas? weaponxboy November 8, 2012 I have the same car you have in this video, can I get the water pump off without taking off the timing belt? 2006 briansmobile1 November 8, 2012 Just be careful and don’t be excessively rough with it and you’ll be fine. Parvez Ahmed November 8, 2012 hi mate, i have a 2003 mitshubishi mirage 1.5L. i need to do my timing belt soon as it has 103000kms on it. i have seen this video many times just becuase left side as in the timing belt side of this car exactly same as my car. but i am just scared cuz never done it. my neighbor got the same car as mine and he did his car but next day he couldnt start the car cuz he messed up with the camshaft sensor he said. is there any chance but anybody would do? thanks in advance briansmobile1 November 8, 2012 Welcome- good luck. I will say that I use a torque wrench on head bolts and on CV axles with hub bearings. I don’t use it on most smaller and less critical components. joerios2486 November 8, 2012 Lol ill take that as a no then. I’m in the middle of doing mine and I don’t have a torque wrench. Thanks for the reply. briansmobile1 November 8, 2012 German spec even- guedandtight. joerios2486 November 8, 2012 Did you torque everything down to spec? briansmobile1 November 8, 2012 You can put the belt on and THEN the tensioner. I usually just make sure I’ve got all the slack gathered at the tensioner and then twist the belt onto the T. pulley.and slide it on. firetheposer November 8, 2012 How do you install the tensioner for the timing belt after putting the new belt on? briansmobile1 November 8, 2012 It’s a crank angle sensor component and the belt rides on it to keep it centered on the drive gear. Without it your engine runs in “limp mode” meaning bad performance and gas mileage. shad0w4life2 November 8, 2012 Update/Questions: First off thanks a lot for this video! So I broke the pins on the “exciter ring” ..took out the nubs and put everything back in for now(check engine) question: what does it do, is it a secondary crank position sensor? I’m going to have to try and drive without it until replacement is in…4th time taking my engine apart yay!Also Have noise like a belt rubbing as well, too tight on the timing pully maybe? It looks even on the sprocket while running.Again thanks shad0w4life2 November 9, 2012 Ok so this was due to a bolt sticking out a bit on PS pump……my stupidity and wanted to see if I had to take engine apart again heh now just a slight tick. shad0w4life2 November 9, 2012 awesome…so if i get a “saw” sound is that one of my marks being a hair off :| id think it wouldnt be so extreme of a sound though I checked the marks and rotated the engine a few times to make sure they ended back at start briansmobile1 November 9, 2012 Check out my video on how to get it on a Honda on my channel. Otherwise some can be done by using a breaker bar, impact socket, and cranking the starter over. shad0w4life2 November 9, 2012 You need to show me how the hell you got the crank pully nut off….that SOB is on there and I’m scared to use the cam bolt to stop engine from turning. 1thisbeme23 November 9, 2012 Do u have any idea where the tensioner belt is on an evo8? To loosen the belt. briansmobile1 November 9, 2012 Yes. Don’t fear the reaper… or the HB. bmjones66 November 9, 2012 is it necessary to remove the harmonic balancer when doing a timing belt change? I will be changing my timing belt soon on my 03 Lancer and that is the only thing that is scaring me! shark70007000 November 9, 2012 That wire is the only one with no change when you turn the key on. That relay seems not to do anything, but when swapped with other relay by glove box, or relay next to it, no change. I have tested all the relays, they all work fine. Do you have any idea what I need to check or do next? shark70007000 November 9, 2012 My son’s car, 2001 Mirage with 1.8, but looks like your 2.0, so I hope the parts I ordered are the correct parts. The timing belt went out @ idle speed. I changed the exhaust valves, all were bent, and put everything together. Timing marks line up perfect, but there is no power to the fuel pump. Relays are all good, pump is good, can’t find any fuse for it. From all my troubleshooting, it seems to come down to one small black/blue tracer wire @ relay near stereo. briansmobile1 November 9, 2012 It’s wise to do so. Many times I replace the pump out of habit/prudence and discover signs of failure once I take the old pump off and look at it. allysaautonomy November 9, 2012 Do you usually have to replace the water pump when you replace the timing belt? briansmobile1 November 9, 2012 I don’t know.
