      The Dayco belt does not fit properly

        Comments about Dayco Timing Belt:

        This belt is too short to fit properly. The tensioner is at minimum and the tension on the belt once installed is excessive. After one week the timing cover shaft seal began to leak because of the excess tension.

        I took the belt back and sourced a Gates belt that fit as designed.

        Comments about Dayco Timing Belt:

        Tried to install two of these on my 2001 Voyager 2.4L almost impossible to get on. After finally wrestling this belt on after about a half hour. I noticed the timing mark were off. I dare not remove the belt so i buttoned things back up and needless to say the car ran terrible because timing was off. I did some research and purchased a Gates belt which by the way was cheaper. It fit perfect and slipped on with little effort. Listen, i love advance auto and they are my number one supplier of parts, but they need to find a better supplier for timing belts.....Uh maybe Gates!!!

        Comments about Dayco Timing Belt:

        I agree with the other poster who has problems getting this particular belt on. I've done 3 late 90s caravan 2.4 liter timing belts with THIS particular dayco belt. Each time was a struggle. On the last belt I did (about 2 years ago with this particular belt) , I noticed the timing marks at the cams were very close but not 100% and also the timing mark at the crank sprocket was not exactly on the trailing edge of the tooth. A one tooth change in every combination in both directions with each cam gear made obvious wrong timing. Needed the vehicle badly, so i put it together with the timing marks as best I could. It was very close by eye. If the crank sprocket trailing edge was dead on target, the cam gears would be off by the slightest amount. If the cam gears were on target, the crank tooth would be off by about one quarter tooth... specifically, the mark on the oil pump would not point to the trailing edge of the tooth, it would be almost 1/4 of the way into the tooth (the crank sprocket should be turned clockwise to line up). It ran seemingly ok. Loss of power or mileage was not obvious, but it irked me the past two years that it was so difficult to put on AND not have it 100% lined up. 40k miles later, just the other day I needed to replace the water pump so I checked the marks again with the old belt in place and saw that the timing marks were better (probably from whatever small stretch these things allow after 40k miles)but indeed still not 100%. I get a gates belt this time and the darn thing slipped right on. Couldn't believe how easily it fit. Took off the gates a couple of times and retried and it will go right back on. The timing marks absolutely lined up at the crank and cams. as a matter of fact, it appears that even the cam sprockets are better aligned than the old belt. These engines are stupid with the dohc timing marks. If you take a straight-edge or tape measure and line up the two OUTSIDE timing marks on the cam gears, the two inside ones are supposed to be slightly above the line as per pictures from the factory service manual. they don't talk about it, only to say that the inside marks should line up. Why don't they make it easy and make marks that line up with a straight edge all the way across all 4 timing marks on the cam gears? Anyhow, Gates brand belts are OEM specific (on the box), they slip right on and the timing marks are dead on. Maybe dayco has changed in the past 2 years, but the three daycos I got for these two caravan 2.4s were very difficult to put on and only with the last one did I notice the change in timing marks. Obviously the last one I did was slightly shorter than they're supposed to be, because a longer belt would be easier to put on and allow the crank to advance just that little bit to get the trailing edge of the tooth. Take note of your marks BEFORE you change it, make new white out marks if you have to, and make corresponding marks on your new dayco belt. Line yours up, put it on (if you can) and if the marks are different, get a gates and take the dayco back as a defect.

          Comments about Dayco Timing Belt:

          I bought this Dayco Timing belt for a 2002 PT Cruiser. The price was right, but you do get what you pay for. I fought with the first belt, on the 2.4L you start at the crank sprocket, weave the belt around the water pump, the idler pulley, intake and exhaust cam sprockets, then finally around the tensioner. The belt wouldn't go around the tensioner. No matter how many times I tried to adjust the slack in the pulley, it wouldn't slip around the lip, not one bit. So I go and buy another Dayco belt thinking maybe there is something wrong with the first one I bought. Same problem. I replaced the timing belt five years ago and it was a Gates timing belt from the dealership. No problems. So, I go buy another gates belt from the dealer, fifty dollars more, but I know what I'm getting. I begin installing the Gates belt and in five minutes I had the belt routed, the tensioner pulley bolt torqued and two full revolutions made and the marks checked. Done. Both Dayco belts are on their way back to the store. I have no problems with the Dayco Serp belts and I will continue to use them, but I will never buy another Dayco Timing Belt ever again.

          Dear Advanced:
          Having had a business several years ageo, the one belt that was totally unrealible was Dayco. Yes they are cheaper than Gates, however the Gates belts were much more forgiving. Mechanics knew that, but the white shirts don't. I'ts the ess with the lines through it that counts anymore.

                A:

                With reference to your inquiry on the Dayco Timing Belt - Part No. 95265, white burning smell associated with overheating very often indicates a breached head gasket and that's a very expensive repair because it tends to warp the head. It may be caused by the coolant leaks into your engine and/or oil leaks into your coolant. With oil in the coolant, it won't prevent overheating. While overheating, and with coolant in the oil, the engine will eventually quit completely. For further assistance, please feel free to call us at 1-877-238-2623 or visit your nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our representatives would be more than happy to assist you.

            • Q:

              the timing belt seems to be to tight or to small but is the right part according to the engine, has anyone else had trouble with this timing belt? I purchased the timing kit which didn't come with the timing belt so I just want to make sure its okay.
