Default Timing belt kit and water pump

Does anyone live close enough to me to wanna help me out? I have no problems just doing simple bolt on procedures, but I dont want to take a chance at messing up on the timing belt. First time I have changed it.

so i had mentioned in a different thread that i already had a mechanic do this for me while i was at work. had him advance my timing along with the new belt and pump. is it normal for it to kinda be noisy at first? i have driven the car maybe 100 miles since the change

No.. Check if your crank pulley is wobbling. If your mechanic didn't torque the crank bolt it will damage your crank and eventually your motor will fail. Maybe your timing belt is touch the timing cover?

i'll check that out. it should be the last time i have a mechanic do any labor on my car other than dyno tuning.

pschmidt - i dont really know how to describe the noise. probably like supra said, the belt touching or rubbing against something.

ok, the sound has been confirmed as a whirring noise. a friend mentioned maybe the timing belt was too tight and making a bearing noisy
