Honda Trouble?

In this article, via video, I will show you how to perform a complete timing belt and water pump, including the tensioner pulley and camshaft and crankshaft seals on a 2002 Honda Civic EX with the 1.7L I4 engine.

This video is approximately 29 minutes long. It was made possible with a donated timing belt component parts kit from GMB corporation, a major Japanese parts and component manufacturer with an international presence. The kit included a Mitsuboshi timing belt (Mitsuboshi is the OE (original manufacturer) for that part), with the remaining parts being GMB.
