US BULLETIN No: 01-001/00 DATE: 2000
CAN BULLETIN No: N/A
APPLIES TO: 1989-1998 MPV AFFECTED VINs: All
SUBJECT: No Start, Rough Idle, Lack Of Power After Timing Belt Replacement
BULLETIN NOTES: Applicable to all 1989-98 V6 MPV.
DETAILS:
Some vehicles may exhibit a no start, rough idle and/or lack of power after a 60,000 mile timing belt replacement interval. These symptoms can be caused by a worn tensioner pulley bushing. As the bushing wears, the pulley becomes misaligned allowing the timing belt to jump or tear. For an effective repair, the tensioner pulley (with bushing), spacer, and timing belt must be replaced as a set.



Customers having this concern should have their vehicle repaired using the following procedure.

REPAIR PROCEDURE

  1. Verify customer concern.
  2. Replace timing belt, tensioner pulley and spacer per the Workshop Manual TIMING BELT REMOVAL / INSTALLATION.
  3. Verify repair.
