Default 92 civic timing belt/water pump change: Intital

Hey hows it going with everybody?
So I want to change my timing belt (water pump if neccessary even though its highly recommended). There is no telling when it was last changed. I had it going on 2 yrs and really dont think its been changed "in God knows how long". Really nervous cause im not sure what to expect better yet go about doing it I only watched my GrandDad change one. I have a book but its not that much helpful as far as images and explaination. Im sure someone has done this and so im looking for assistance as well as an estimate on cost and other recommendations to make sure 5th with abot 266k+ mi runs like money to be worth something to sell oneday Holla at a saint.

1992-95 Engines

Disconnect the negative battery cable. Slightly raise and support the driver's side of the vehicle, remove the driver's side wheel. Remove the driver's side wheel well splash shield.
Remove the air conditioning compressor adjust pulley with bracket and the belt (if equipped with air conditioning).
Remove the side engine mount bracket. Loosen the alternator adjust bolt and through-bolt then remove the belt.
Remove the engine support bolts and nuts, then remove the side mount rubber.
Unfasten the crankshaft pulley bolt and remove the crankshaft pulley.
Remove the timing belt upper cover and lower cover.
Mark the rotation of the timing belt (for easy installation). Loosen the adjusting bolt, then remove the timing belt.

Inspect the timing belt. Replace it if it has been in service longer than 90,000 miles, if it is oil soaked (find and correct the source of the oil leak), or if it is worn on the leading edges of the belt teeth.

To install:
Double check the position of the engine. The timing pointer must be aligned with the mark on the flywheel; the cam pulley must be set so the small dot or the word UP is vertical and the marks on the edges of the pulley are aligned with the surface of the head.
Install the belt on the pulleys.
Be sure to adjust the timing belt as follows:

The tensioner is spring-loaded to apply proper tension to the timing belt automatically after making the following adjustment. Be sure to always adjust the timing belt tension with the engine cold.

After installing the timing belt, adjust the belt tension by first rotating the crankshaft counterclockwise 1/4 turn or three teeth on the camshaft pulley (this will put tension on the timing belt). Then, re-tighten the adjusting bolt and finally the tensioner pivot bolt. After adjustments are complete, be sure to re-tighten the crankshaft pulley bolt to specifications.
Start the car and check for smooth operation.

Do not remove the adjusting or pivot bolts, only loosen them. When adjusting, do not use any force other than the adjuster spring. If the belt is too tight, it will result in a shortened belt life.

Its not as hard as it seems. I would say the hardest part is getting the crank pulley bolt off, and doing the timing afterwards.


Get the correct manual for your car from any auto parts store, thatll really help. Also, you can get the crank pulley bolt removal tool from Pep Boys. They rent it for $40 deposit, and you get it all back when you return it.
