Hello, I have included a link to the full repair, it is an interference engine so, many times no valve damage but sometimes it happens, You need to fix pump and get belt on , in time and see what happens. Yes, the water pumps sounds to be at fault and can /will cause timing belt issues, Look at the repair I have included for marks and so on
thats the balancer belt, some do them, most dont, your using a timing cover bolt to help hold tensioner for balance belt
oh ,, you mean wher you remove a plug on block, then insert the bolt to assit in timing the balance shaft
yes, you will see a plug on side of block inline with the balance shaft
Please leave feedback for my service provided,The post will remain open after feedback for any followups, if needed. Thanks
timing is not adjustabel, so,, if all together, all went ok, then you could? have a slightly bent valve or you could? be off a tooth
the only way to be 100% is called a cylinder leak down test. This is where compressed air is put into each cylinder and listen for air at intake or exhaust, Other than the formal test? a compression test is a test as well or,, you put belt on, confirm and triple check timing and if all else ok? then likely a valve is bent
you can line up crank pully to the mark, then remove top cover to confirm cam line ups
unsure, 3 marks? where on engine cover? can you snap a pic and send to this post
I cant remember thus why a picture would help but usually the main larger mark is the TDC mark
crank tool? confused, you did the belt?
yes, I have those pics, I was wanting to see how your car looks
ok, just did not follow why you needed a tool if you did belt already, its all good
could but if ac off and runs ok then rule that out
sorry, ac off and still runs bad then not ac
