Removal for 1.6L engines :


REMOVAL 1. Disconnect negative battery cable.
2. Loosen power steering lock bolts and nuts accordingly and remove tension from power steering (P/S) and/or air conditioning(A/C) compressor drive belt.
3. Remove P/S and/or A/C drive belt.
4. Loosen generator mounting bolts and adjusting bolt.
5. Remove generator bolts.
6. Remove water pump pulley.
7. Remove crankshaft pulley.
8. Remove upper and lower timing belt covers.
9. Turn crankshaft so that timing mark ontiming belt pulley is aligned with timing mark on engine.
10. Check that "I" mark on intake camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on seal plate and "E" mark on exhaust camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on seal plate.


Do not move camshaft or crankshaft once timing marks have been correctly positioned.
11. Loosen tensioner pulley lock bolt.
12. Protect timing belt with a rag.
13. Remove tensioner pulley.
14. Remove timing belt.


Mark the direction of timing belt rotation (on the timing belt) for proper reinstallation.
INSTALLATION 1. Install tensioner pulley.


Replace tensioner spring whenever timing belt is replaced.
2. Pull tensioner pulley to its furthest point and tighten lock bolt.
3. Check that timing mark on timing belt pulley is aligned with timing mark on engine.
4. Check that "I" mark on intake camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on seal plate and "E" mark on exhaust camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on seal plate.


If existing timing belt is being reused install belt in proper rotation direction marked prior to removal.
5. Install timing belt onto timing belt pulley first, then idler pulley, exhaust camshaft pulley, intake camshaft pulley, and tensioner pulley in that order.
6. Check that there is no looseness in the belt between idler pulley and exhaust camshaft pulley or between intake and exhaust camshaft pulleys.
7. Loosen tensioner pulley lock bolt and allow tensioner spring to apply tension to timing belt.


Do not add additional tension.
8. Tighten tensioner pulley lock bolt to specified torque.
Tightening torque:28~38 lb-ft (38~51 N·m, 3.9~5.2 kg-m)
9. Rotate crankshaft two full revolutions (clockwise only) and align timing mark on timing belt pulley with timing mark on engine block.
10. Check that "I" mark on intake camshaft pulley and "E" mark on exhaust camshaft pulley are aligned with marks on seal plate.
11. If they are not aligned, remove timing belt and start process from tensioner&;nbsp;installation.
12. Measure timing belt deflection by applying moderate pressure midway between camshaft pulleys If deflection is not correct, repeat from tensioner installation.
Deflection pressure:22 Ib. (98 N, 10 kg)Deflection:0.39~0.50 in. (11~13 mm)
13. Install lower and upper timing belt covers in that order.
Tightening torque:5.8~8.0 Ib-ft (7.9~10.7 N·m, 0.8~1.1 kg-m)
14. Install timing belt guide plate and crankshaft pulley.
Tightening torque:9.0~12.6 lb-ft (12.3~17.2 N·m, 1.3~1.8 kg-m)
15. Install water pump pulley.
Tightening torque:9.0~12.6 lb-ft (12.3~17.2 N·m, 1.3~1.8 kg-m)
16. Install generator belt and adjust the tension.


17. Install P/S and/or A/C drive belt and adjust the tension.
18. Connect negative battery cable.
INSPECTION

Never forcefully twist, turn inside out or bend timing belt. Do not allow oil or grease to come in contact with timing belt.
1. Replace timing belt if it is contaminated with oil or grease.
2. Check timing belt for uneven wear, fraying, peeling, cracking and hardening. Replace timing belt as necessary.


3. Bend timing belt into a "U" shape as shown in figure. Distance "A" must be at least 1.0 in (25 mm).
4. Inspect both idler pulley and tensioner pulley for uneven wear and smooth bearing operation.


5. Inspect camshaft pulleys and timing belt pulley for broken teeth or damage.




Replace any component that shows damage, excessive wear, or that appears prone to a possible failure

Question

I just recently bought a 2005 rio manual with a 12.6L engine, and 100,000 miles on it. Engine light cam on code read "cam shaft position sensor". Changed that only to find out the timing was off. Belt looks intact, but the pulleys are not aligned. It still runs, but sounds like crap. I am changing the belt soon. Question is; Need I worry about the valves and heads now? Or should they be ok at this point?

Welcome to the forum.

The camshaft position sensor error code most often indicates a slipped timing belt, and not a bad sensor.

It would be worth trying a new belt and re-aligning the timing, but there is of course the risk with these engines of pistons impacting the valves.
You might be lucky that the timing is not that far out, so worth a try.

Help

I managed to finally remove covers, and replaced water pump..WHEW!! Not a car person so this was a big deal for me. I lined up Idle and Engine pulleys. I went to line up timing belt pulley and it will not turn full 360 deg. It get's to either immediately to Right or Left of Mark and then stops. I had a mechanic look at it, and he managed to turn it all the way around. He put belt on, we turned it 3 times completely around, and everything was lined up. When I went to start the engine, as soon as I turned the key an awful "CLANK" came from the engine. I turned it off. Pulleys only made half a turn. Now the timing belt pulley will not turn again...Any idea what is going on??? The mechanic has no clue either.

It sounds like you attempted to start it with the valve timing incorrect, and that clunk sound you heard was the pistons hitting the valves, and unfortunately that's all it takes to destroy the engine.
It looks like time for a replacement engine.

02 Rio timing belt change

I have an 02 Rio. Got lucky and my first belt lasted until 70k, Now approaching 120K, getting ready to do it myself this time. I did my 04 Sedona, so it can't be any harder than that one can it? lol
