Acura Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
How many teeth was the timing wrong by?
More than likely it has bent valves now.
Can you do a compression test on all cylinders please?
Ok, I would recheck your belt timing again.
Sounds like it has jumped again.
The jump might be occurring when the engine stops.
If you are really lucky, it doesn't bend valves.
Something in your setup is not right, if it keeps jumping teeth.
Ok, so if the timing is correct now, can we do a compression test?
You also may need to do a leakdown test to determine which cylinders are affected.
5 teeth on many engines would have bent valves, inlet or exhaust, sometimes both.
I will offer your question to another tech.
Somebody should be with you soon.
Hi Im David, you will not get any other suggestions form me until the compression is tested. this is mandatory.1. the car was running fine. you replaced the timing belt and hopefully the tensioners too, because if you didnt, then thats why you jumped time.2. the car isnt running fine anymore. because of something you did incorrectly.
i hope i didnt offend you with that tone, as you say. i am to the point and only here to help. i go about my assistance as i would go about troubleshooting the vehicle my self.
i will give you other possibilities if the compression is good.
wouldnt help you with answers??? with the information you provided it led to no conclusion it was the battery. knowing how to replace a timing belt would lead me to believe you would have an idea of a weak battery. good day
sorry we couldnt have been more help to you.
New expert here, do you need any help? Sounds like you got it figured out.
Yes that happens, still happens to me at work once in a while.
Especially when its the first time doing that particular repair.
Let me know if you have any more questions, I was a Honda tech for a while now work at Subaru.
