I replaced a broken timing belt on my wifes 90 Loyale Christmas day 2011. I installed new tensioners and idler pulley plus the belts...PMI I believe the name on the kit.
Today the belt broke again. The first time the idle pulley broke and the ball bearings went ballistice underneath the belt housing and shreaded the belt. Understandable. Todays broken belt and pullys
don't indicate what the cause is. Just a broken belt. The pullys are all ok, no excess loosness nor binding.
So are there any recommendations for timing belt kits? I will try a different brand. I will change everything
again. Also last year I didn't change the H2O pump. I usually use AISIN pumps, but I always bought pumps for Loyales with Air Conditioning......this car does not have AC, I have read that the pumps can be different. Anyone know which pump to get. Long winded but almost done.
NO oil on belt that broke, no rocks or sticks, no water or any wetness at all. Just a bad belt??? 13months 10days old........less that 7,000miles on the belt.
OK, I'm done
