I am new to this Forum .It looks like a good one to me !I was driving down the road at 65 miles per and my timing belt broke(120,000 miles) on original belt. Is that about how long those belts usually last ? Also, How hard is it to change this belt .Any advice would be appreciated.It dont look that hard to get at so I was going to take a stab at it tonight.Thanks in advance for any help.This is my 1992 ranger 2wd.
Well, mine's been timing for almost 19 years, guess I'd better change it. Figure it will be dry-rotted..
And, I don't want to walk home or pay some repair place a zillion to fix it when I don't get to choose when, where, and who does it. But, I figure I have gotten my use out of it.. tom
It's not how hard you work, it's how much you get done. Simplificate and add lightness
Could someone please explain or point me to a URL that explains the details of changing this timing belt? I've got a 1997 with a 2.3L 4cyl that's got about 125000 miles. I don't want to be stranded beside the road.
[font=century gothic][color=darkblue]No Email Addresses In Posts![/b])]mail 92 mustang with the 2.3. Bought the car with the timing belt already removed. I need to know where the timing marks are supposed to be. PLEASE!!??
I have a manuel on the 1979-1990 2.3,so if anyone needs referance to the timing belt change please email me at jasper002002(No Email Addresses In Posts!).I will scan the pages and send them to you via email,the book is pretty good about explaining that dept.The good thing is that like someone mentioned earlier,it is a non interference motor so you dont have to worry about getting the timing wrong and bending valves.Good luck and happy to help out in any way i can guys!
