timing belt tensioner

Hi, recently the timing belt for my car started making funny noises. i went to check the timing belt and its loosened. how do you readjust it exactly. do i have to remove the timing belt first or can i just adjust the tensioner from there?

Depends on the timing of the engine. If its jumped a tooth then yes remove the timing belt and reset. Either way youre going to do the initial tear down to check the timing and get access to things.

Reset tension and turn the crank some and recheck timing and tension once more. I suppose you have helms service manual no?

when it comes to reading everything and trying it im in the stupid end. if there is a step by step visual process i can probably do it. as for the manual, it confuses me. there are pictures but i learn easier watching how the process is done. but thanks ill try researching more before i actually start it.

timing isn't something you wanna mess with if you don't know what you're doing. bring the car to a professional.

Might as well throw in a full timing belt job while you're messing with the belt.

Yep suggest replacing the idle pulley assembly and bolts if you can seriously afford it.

You can't adjust the tensioner on a stock 5G H22. It has a hydraulic auto-tensioner.

The common fix is the 4G H23's manual tensioner.

I picked up the kaizenspeed tensioner, I'm about to have it installed with a full timing belt job and almost all seals and gaskets.

I've never heard anyone suggest replacing the idler pulley. I also don't claim to have vast mechanical background either, so could you please go into detail about this.

The KAIZENSPEED tensioner is becoming the new common fix. I'd definitely recommend it for people who are converting to a manual tensioner setup.

Yes while you need not replace anything but the tensioner mech itself when buying the kstuned tensioner. The old norm was an entire h23 swap which uses a different idler. Its just my .02 on handling a job that no one likes to do twice in a row. Cost vs probability of failure of continued use
