I should be good with timing belt and Water pump ?

I would also replace the tentioner pulley as well as the idler, just to make sure you have no trouble. Oreilly's has a timing belt kit that comes with everything you need and it is made by Gates.

Let me ask you something , I'm thinking the belt broke or jumped timing . I can check that before I start right ? Because if the timing marks are on then it must be something else

That is correct.

When I rotate the crank neither of the cam sprockets are moving with it

The the timing belt has broken, or the teeth have stripped of. The timing belt will need to be replaced.

Thanks . Another guy also told me this engine was an interference

Not this year. The valves should not hit the pistons on this engine.

I am so sorry. When I looked up the information the other night I some how looked up a passport with the 3.2. The 3.2 is a non interference engine. The 3.5 IS an interference engine.

Dang thanks ok . So you think it's going to need valve work as well

More then likely. Pull the valve cover off and check your valve lash. If the valve lash is good, then the valves are not bent. If the valve lash is to big, then the valves are.

Ok

I put the timing belt on and checked compression . All 6 cylinders have zero compression

Did you check the valve lash?

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
