  • Timing Belt and Tune-up. What else should I replace?

    About to change my timing belt, along with my 3 belts. What is standard to change with the timing belt? I'm looking for things that are common to change with the timing belt. Perhaps the tensioner stud or tensioner? I myself do not know. I did a quick search on z31.com with no big results.

    I also believe I am running a little rich. Perhaps someone would recommend changing something in there that might fix the problem while I am in there. I think I read somewhere in one of the searches that the CHTS in there around the timing belt, and I have been told this is a possible culprit of running rich. I personally have always thought it was on the outside of the engine, however, since I've never dealt with it, I don't know. Would you recomend I replace the CHTS while I'm at it?

    What are other common parts to replace in 120,000 tune up?

        ^2nd that.
        Just stand back and throw money.
        Performance costs money.
        Reliable performance costs more.

          it's outside the performance forums list, perhaps it should be called the Repair / Noob forum? We don't need to be too 1337, but Z31.com is a board also perfect for this type of question.

          I agree with the above posted list plus perhaps buying a new crank sprocket if yours won't come off easily.
