What else should I change when changing timing belt?

Always replace the idler pulleys, tensioner, and water pump when you replace the timing belt.
2. In most cases, the timing belt drives the water pump, so replacing the water pump at the same time is recommended.
3. This is also recommended by the manufacturer.

What kills the water pump in a car?

Corrosion is one of the main causes of water pump failure.
2. Corrosion often goes undetected until it’s too late.
3. Corrosion occurs when the fluid in the cooling system is not properly maintained, or when the fluid is replaced with a mix that includes tap water (distilled water should always be used when refilling cooling systems).

What happens when a Honda timing belt breaks?

The camshaft stopping causes all timing to be lost, which then causes the pistons to crash into the valves and damage both parts. Depending on the force of the collision, the cylinder walls could also be decimated. Essentially, the broken timing belt takes out this entire section of the engine.

How do you know if timing belt is going?

The most obvious sign that a belt needs to be replaced is a loss of power when accelerating.
2. Slippage is another sign that the belt needs to be replaced and is identified by a high-pitched, intermittent screeching sound from the engine.
3. Another sign that the belt needs to be replaced is slow pick-up at lower revs.
4. A rattling noise from the engine can also be a sign that the belt needs to be replaced, although this is more commonly associated with worn, stretched, or damaged pulleys.

Will a bad timing chain throw a code?

A worn or stretched timing chain can cause misfiring, cam timing problem codes, low power and poor running of the engine.
2. A weak timing chain tensioner can cause misfiring, cam timing problem codes, low power and poor running of the engine.
3. Worn timing chain guides can cause misfiring, cam timing problem codes, low power and poor running of the engine.
4. Most, if not all, of these problems will illuminate the Check Engine light.
