I have a prelude 4th gen from 1993 a h22a2 engine VTEC.
To make a long story short..
This Monday I parked my car at my local shop to get a timing belt changed and balance belt + water pump and all that stuff. I got it back in the evening and i felt like something was wrong, it was shaking a bit. I was to deliver it the day after because of the shaking. But when I turned it on in the morning it made some serious weird sounds ! :s I turned it off immediately.
I called my dad, he's got an auto trailer, so back to the shop with my car
Then today he opened it, and called me and he told me some bolt at the water pump was broke. I was like wtf!
Heres a picture on the water pump of what's gone wrong..
Sorry for the bad quality.. Taken with my phone
But as you see, my best guess of this happening is over torqued.. Though he told me he torqued it after specs.. I dont know if thats true
I cant find it in my manual, can anyone of you help me with this? How many kg / nm should this bolt be tightened with?
yea we do have American cars here in Denmark hehe
Its a 6.5l turbo diesel
Anyways I hope some of you guys can help me.
Kind regards Rasmus
