My car started acting up recently and thought i might be timing so i took off the valve cover. i saw that the timing belt had shifted partly off the cam gears to the drivers side. What would cause this and how do i fix it?

btw this is a recent swap and i did the timing belt myself

Also, make sure it is positioned correctly around the water pump, tensioner, and crank gear. Meaning that it's not slid or shifted off toward the drivers side of any of those either.

When you were installing the timing belt you may have accidently rotated the crank backwards which is counter-clockwise. This would cause your timing to be incorrect. It's a mistake thats not all that rare.

i dont remember them so its quite possible. Does anyone have an actual picture of them?

im gonna go get some actual picures of my car right now


When you remove the crank pulley, the front "disk" will come off easily. It is probably a little over 2" in diameter. You'd have to pull the timing belt pulley (the one with the teeth) to get the back one off. I don't see how your timing belt could be that far off the cam gears if both of these disks were installed.

Looks like it's off a tooth to me, that's just from my observation though... look close at that pic.

The gears look fine but from what I've seen you probably don't have the "disc" pointed out in the pic on the front side/outside, not having that could cause the belt to slide off like yours and having it installed backwards(the "flares" pointed toward the crank) will chew up the timing belt.

top dead center is at the single mark on the crank pulley right? if so this is what i got

here are the pics, the timing belt was really sawing thorugh that cover.
So i guess i will need to talk the belt all the way off and put on those two washers?
