How to get to the piston

Big job and if you need to ask that question, I would doubt you have the tools and knowhow to accomplish, UNLESS you want a big learning experience with Clymer manual in hand.

If you want to look at the top of the piston for some reason, remove the air filter, plug leads and anything attached to the cylinder head. Undo the rocker cover bolts and remove. Remove the Timing Belt. Undo the cylinder head bolts and lift the head off.

If you need to replace a piston, it is much more work and starts with 'remove the engine'.

Why do you need to 'get to the piston'?

Free vehicle repair manuals

yes there is a seal on the cam shaft behind the water pump pully
undo that bolt
you have to undo the cam shaft to get to it .dont drop the lifters
19 nm for the can bearing bolts not overtighten the two rocker cover bolts you can crack the rocker cover or split the cam bearing those bolts tight into
many say not to use silicon but because of the age of the car you need to use the blue silicone on the half moon the rocker gasket and the cam seal ..there are no online repair manuals for the tm-tp magnas ..the rocker covers can warp but rare

Front Seat removal problem on a 2006 Pontiac Gran Prix. I have tried to run the seat all the way back but the front seat Bolt goes down into the floor but when you look UNDER the car there is No NUT there...

There should be some small plastic trim covers over the bolts on the very front of the rails. Remove those trim covers. The bolts will be underneath. If memory serves me you will need a torx socket to remove them. A T45 or T50 male torx socket comes to mind.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Where are the timing marks for a peugeot 1.9 td 306


Hope this is helpful, if you need more info get back to me.

1, park car, handbrake on
2, loosen drivers side front wheel bolts,
3, crawl under car use 22mm socket and breaker bar to loosen the crankshaft pulley bolt, it'll probably be quite tight, once undone nip it up again not to tight,
4, open bonnet,
5, jack drivers side of car up, put on axle stand
6, remove wheel
7, loosen and remove intercooler bolts, then intercooler
8, find 6mm allen key
9, behind the starter motor there is a hole in the gearbox housing, put the allen key in it, (may be easier to undo and remove the 3 starter motor bolts)
10, get a 22mm socket put it on the crankshaft pulley bolt, turn the crankshaft bolt clockwise whilst at the same time pushing the allen key into the hole (easier with an assistant but can be done solo) keep turning until the allen key drops into the hole(you'll understand when you do it, may have to turn the engine for quite some time reasonably slowly),
11, thats the engine now on it's timing marks,
12, now put a trolley jack and block of wood under the sump and jack it up until it takes the weight of the engine,
13, remove the left hand side engine mount, basically move the fuel primer to one side, remove the rubber bung if there, then carefully undo the 4 5/8 size bolts and remove the top half of the mount (careful engine doesn't suddenly slip of jack and trap your hand),
14, now remove the 10mm bolts holding the front cambelt cover on, then do the same for the rear cover, except there is one bolt at the back of the cover which is 11mm,
15, now looking at both of the exposed pulleys you will 2 timing holes with a threaded insert behind, on the cam pulley it's at about 4 o clock and i think 2 o clock on the fuel pump, now find the 2 short bolts from the intercooler, they are the right size to fit in the timing holes,
16, now under the arch, remove the crankshaft pulley bolt and pull of the pulley,
17, now remove the lower cambelt cover, all 10mm bolts,
18, now look at the new belt tensioner and you'll see a square hole in it, find the same hole on the car, a short 3/8 socket extension will fit in there and you can then use a ratchet to apply or release the tension,
19, undo but don't remove the two bolts holding the tensioner, now use your ratchet to push the tensioner towards the windowscreen, whilst holding it there use your other hand to release the belt from behind the tensioner,
20, with the belt now loose remove it from round the rest of the components,
21, now replace the waterpump,
22, now replace both the tensioner and idler pulley, to do this you'll need to remove the rest of the metal engine mount, the bolts are quite obvious,
23, replace the belt in the same manner you removed it,
to tension the new belt pull the ratchet towards you then tighten the tensioner bolts at the same time,
24, with the tensioner tightened push the belt in the middle between the two pulleys you should have about half an inch of deflection if correct (check the old belt before removing to give you an idea),
25, now remove the two timing pins in the pulleys and the allen key,
screw the crankshaft pulley bolt into it's hole (leave the pulley off) if you keep screwing it in then the engine will turnover,
26, turn the engine over by hand at least 8 times, then put the timing pins back in as you did at the start, if you've done it all right it'll turn over with no issues
27, recheck the tension again,
28, if alls well then refit the lower cambelt cover,
29, refit the crankshaft pulley,
30, refit everything you've removed, torque all required bolts correctly (except crankshaft pulley which is done last)
31, remove the allen key (2 intercooler bolts will have already been done when fitting the covers and intercooler,
32, turn the engine over again by hand to check there's no rubbing on the cam covers or any other issues,
33, if alls well then top up the engine coolant as you'll have lost alot when doing the waterpump, bleed it properly,
34, put the road wheel back on, lower the car to the ground then torque up the crankshaft pulley bolt,
35, job done start her up then tidy up

How do you replace a timing belt on a 2000 ford focus 2.0 liter sohc

Removing The Old Timing Belt Remove the negative battery cable in all models.
  • Detach the passenger inner splash-shield and wheel cover, the accessory drive and timing belts, the tensioner and the crankshaft pulley.
  • Remove the spark plugs, catalytic converter and idler pulley in 2000 and older Ford Focuses. These models also require the crankshaft be turned to "Top Dead Center" (TOC) and a crankshaft timing peg be inserted. Turn the shaft to the right against the timing peg.
  • Undo the retaining fasteners and lift the timing belt cover off the engine. Align the crank and camshaft timing marks. Older models call for undoing the water pump pulley and valve cover before locking the camshaft in place.
  • Release the tensioner's bolt. Turn the arm to the right 14 degrees and place a 1/8 inch drill bit in the opening. This secures the belt tensioner in place.
  • Take the timing belt off.
  • Installing Your New Timing Belt
  • Replace the timing belt counterclockwise motion beginning at the crankshaft.
  • Unlock the tensioner. Recheck the timing marks by turning the crankshaft two rotations to the right.
  • Tauten the tensioner's pulley bolt to 15 to 22 foot pounds (20 to 30 Nm) in 2003 and younger models and to 17 to 20 foot pounds (22 to 28 Nm) in older Focuses. Remove the crankshaft timing peg. Reconnect the crankshaft pulley and secure to 81 to 96 foot pounds (110 to 130 Nm) and 81 to 89 foot pounds (110 to 120 Nm) respectively.
  • Replace the splash shield, front wheel, timing belt cover, accessory drive belt and tensioner and any other items that were disconnected.
  • Hook up the negative battery cable. Start the engine and check that the timing belt is functioning properly.

    I need to replace plugs and wire on a 1999 sportage. Where are they in the engine?

    javlinenterp , Hi mate, I have just replaced mine today in my 2000 Sportage 2 liter DOHC Sportage. It is not difficult, just time consumeing. Remove the main breather pipe and throttle cables etc, then undo the 6 bolts holding the black plastic cover in the middle of the rocker cover. Then undo the 2 bolts secureing each of the 2 spark coils and pull up the plug connerctors. The plugs are about 8 inches down inside the head. Take them out and put in the new ones, Job done. Cheers Jay Ar, Carnarvon West Aust.

    Can water pump be removed and re-installed W/O removing any pulleys on a 1988 Samari Suzuki.

    No. As both the water pump pump pulley and crankshaft pulley both partially cover the timing belt cover, they have to be removed to get the timing belt cover and the timing belt off. The only bolt you DON'T need to undo (unless you want to change the front crankshaft oil seal), is the centre bolt holding the crankshaft timing belt sprocket on. Only the surrounding 4 or 5 bolts need to be removed so the crankshaft pulley can be removed.
