Customer Question
02 diamante 3.5 engine...

02 diamante 3.5 engine. Changed timing belt. Now when I turn crank by hand. It stops about at the 8 o'clock position. Cam marks was lined up. So I don't know.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the timing belt? Have you ever had to change it before?

150 on old belt. I've done this on my VW. First time on this car.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Diamante yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've removed the belts reset timing marks and still hits right at the same point.
