Hello jeff1234, the instructions you need are below. If you need more help along the way let me know.


  1. Remove the engine cover.
  2. Remove the drive belt.
Remove the idler pulley, crankshaft pulley, power steering pulley and tensioner pulley.

  1. Remove the upper and lower timing belt cover.
  2. Support the engine with garage jack or special tool, and then remove the engine mounting insulator. CAUTION: Take care not to deform the engine oil pan.
  1. Remove the auto tensioner. NOTE: Rotate the crankshaft clockwise and align the timing mark to get the No. 1 cylinder's piston be in TDC position (compression stroke). At this time, the timing marks of the camshaft sprocket and cylinder head cover should coincide with each other.

Remove the timing belt. NOTE: When re-using timing belt, make sure of marking the rotating direction on the belt so as to install correctly.
