Ok, I will. Have you done a timing belt before?
This engine also has an extra belt for the balancer shafts.
When the word "CODE" is displayed, enter the customer's 5-digit code to restore radio operation.
Do you mean water pump?
Once its all apart the water pump is jut 4 bolts and its off
The front balancer shaft seal has popped out. look at the image of the front shaft. You take that pulley off and remove the old seal. Then install a new one.
Most people replace the water pump as long as the timing belts are off, but if ours isnt that old you can leave it alone
When you remove the timing cover you will see that the seals for the front balancer is no longer in the block, it has popped out and is spinning around with the front balacer shaft.
There is a huge opening where the seal should be and oil comes out rapidly.
The timing belt should be replaced because the oil will cause it to break before it should
Ok, you're welcome
