  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. On vehicles equipped with an air bag, wait at least 90 seconds before proceeding.
  2.  
  3. Remove the right side engine undercover. Disconnect the accelerator and throttle cables, as required.
  4.  
  5. Remove the drive belts, alternator and alternator bracket. Remove the air cleaner and air intake collector assemblies and spark plugs on the fuel injected engine.
  6.  
  7. Raise the engine and remove the right side engine mounting insulator assembly.
  8.  
  9. Remove the cylinder head cover. Set the engine to TDC on the compression stroke. Remove the crankshaft pulley using the proper removal tool.
  10.  
  11. Remove both timing belt covers. Remove the timing belt guide. Remove the timing belt and the No. 1 idler pulley. If using the old belt matchmark it in the direction of engine rotation. Matchmark the pulleys.
  12.  
  13. Remove the tension spring. Remove the No. 2 idler pulley. Remove the crankshaft pulley, camshaft pulley and oil pump pulley using the proper tools.
  14.  

To install:

  1. Inspect the belt for defects. Replace as required. Inspect the idler pulleys and springs. Replace defective components as required.
  2.  
  3. Align and install the oil pump pulley. Torque the retaining bolt to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  4.  
  5. To install the camshaft timing pulley, align the camshaft knock pin with the No. 1 bearing cap mark. Align the knock pin hole on the 3E-E mark side with the camshaft knock pin hole. Torque the retaining bolt to 37 ft. lbs. (51 Nm).
  6.  
  7. Install the crankshaft timing pulley and align the TDC marks on the oil pump body and the crankshaft timing pulley. Install the No. 1 idler pulley. Pry the idler pulley toward the left as far as it will go and temporarily tighten the retaining bolt.
  8.  
  9. Install the No. 2 idler pulley and torque the retaining bolt to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm). Install the timing belt. If reusing the old belt align it with the marks made during the removal procedure.
  10.  
  11. Inspect the valve timing and the belt tension by loosening the No. 1 idler pulley set bolt. Temporarily install the crankshaft pulley bolt and turn the crankshaft 2 complete revolutions in the clockwise direction.
  12.  
  13. Check that each pulley aligns with the proper markings. Torque the No. 1 idler pulley bolt to 13 ft. lbs. (17 Nm). Check for proper belt tension. The belt should deflect 1 / 4 in. (6mm) at 4 1 / 2 lbs. pressure. Install the belt guide.
  14.  
  15. Install the timing belt covers. Align and install the crankshaft pulley. Torque the retaining bolt to specifications.
  16.  
  17. Installation of the remaining components is the reverse of the removal procedure. Service components as required. Make all necessary engine adjustments and road test for proper operation.

  7. Remove cruise control actuator, if equipped.
  8.  
  9. For vehicle with distributor ignition, mark the vacuum lines and remove VSV assembly.
  10.  
  11. For vehicles with distributorless ignition, remove the ground strap.
  12.  
  13. Raise the engine enough to remove weight from the right side engine mount and remove the mount.
    NOTE
    Be careful not to damage vacuum or electrical connections when raising the engine.

  14.  
  15. Remove the spark plugs.
  16.  
  17. Remove the No. 2 timing belt cover.
  18.  
  19. Rotate the engine clockwise until the crankshaft pulley is aligned with the 0 mark on the No. 1 timing belt cover. Verify the hole (5E-FE) in the camshaft timing pulley is aligned with the timing mark on the No. 1 bearing cap. If not as specified, rotate the crankshaft an additional 360°.

  20.  
  21. For vehicles with A/C and/or power steering, remove the four bolts to the No. 2 crankshaft pulley. Remove the No. 2 crankshaft pulley.
  22.  
  23. Using tools SST 09213-14010 and SST 09330-00021 or equivalent, remove the No. 1 crankshaft pulley bolt.
  24.  
  25. Using tools SST 09950-50010 or equivalent (crankshaft puller), remove the No. 1 crankshaft pulley from the crankshaft.
  26.  
  27. Remove the No. 3 timing belt cover (plug).
  28.  
  29. Remove the No. 1 timing belt cover and timing belt guide.
  30.  
  31. Place matchmarks on the timing belt on both sides of the cam and crankshaft gear timing marks. Also place an arrow on the top surface of the belt to indicate the direction of travel.

  32.  
  33. Using pliers, remove the tension spring.
  34.  
  35. Loosen the No. 1 idler pulley bolt and push the pulley to the left as far as it will go, then temporarily tighten the bolt.
  36.  
  37. Remove the belt.
  38.  
  39. Using tool SST 09960-10010 or equivalent, remove the bolt and camshaft timing pulley.
  40.  
  41. Remove the crankshaft timing sprocket. If the timing pulley cannot be removed by hand, use a plastic faced hammer. Do not pry on the gear.
  42.  
  43. Remove the No. 1 and No. 2 idler pulleys.
  44.  

To install:

  1. Install the No. 1 idler pulley and spring to the engine. Do not tighten the bolts at this time.
  2.  
  3. Torque the No. 2 idler pulley bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (28 Nm).
  4.  
  5. Install the camshaft timing sprocket and torque the bolt to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm). Make sure to align the camshaft knock pin with the knock pin groove on the pulley side with the 5E-FE marking.
