1. REPLACE TIMING BELT
(a) Remove the timing belt. (See pages EM 11 to 13)
(b) Install the timing belt. (See pages EM-15 to 17)
2. INSPECT V-RIBBED TYPE DRIVE BELT (ALTERNATOR) AND CONVENTIONAL TYPE DRIVE BELTS (PS PUMP AND A/C COMPRESSOR)
(a) Visually check the belt for separation of the adhesive rubber above and below the core, core separation from the belt side, severed core, separation of the rib from the adhesive rubber, cracking or separation of the ribs, torn or worn ribs or cracks in the inner ridges of the ribs. Conventional type only^ Check that the belt does not touch the bottom of the pulley groove.
If necessary, replace the drive belt.
(b) Using a belt tension gauge, check the drive belt tension.
Belt tension gauge:
Drive belt tension:
V-ribbed type Used belt 135 ± 20 lb
Conventional type Used belt 80 ± 20 lb
If necessary, adjust the drive belt tension.
e "New belt" refers to a belt which has been used less than 5 minutes on a running engine, e "Used belt" refers to a belt which has been used on a running engine for 5 minutes or more. • After replacing the drive belt, check that it fits properly in the ribbed grooves, especially in the places difficult to see.
e After installing a new belt, run the engine for about 5 minutes and then recheck the tension.

(b) Remove the spark plugs.
(c) Check the gap on the new plugs.
Recommended spark plugs:
NOTE: If adjusting the gap of a new plug, bend only the base of the ground electrode. Do not touch the tip. Never attempt to adjust the gap on a used plug.
4. INSPECT AIR FILTER
(a) Visually check that the air cleaner element is not ex-r cessively dirty, damaged or oily.
(b) Clean the element with compressed air.
First blow from the back side thoroughly. Then blow off the front side of the element.
5. REPLACE AIR FILTER
Replace the air cleaner element with a new one.
6. REPLACE ENGINE OIL AND OIL FILTER (See page LU-3)
Engine oil grade:
API grade SF or SF/CC, multigrade viscosity and fuel-efficient oil
Engine oil capacity (Drain and refill with oil filter change): 5.1 liters (5.4 US qts, 4.5 Imp. qts)
REPLACE ENGINE COOLANT
(a) Drain the coolant from the radiator and engine drain cocks. (Engine drain is at right rear of engine block.)
(b) Close the drain cocks.
(c) Fill system with coolant.
Coolant capacity (w/ heater or air conditioner): M/T 8.0 liters (8.5 US qts, 7.0 Imp. qts) A/T 7.9 liters (8.3 US qts, 7.0 Imp. qts)
Use a good brand of ethylene^glycol base coolant, mixed according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Air should flow through freely and no charcoal should come out. maoc»*
8. INSPECT CHARCOAL CANISTER
(a) Disconnect the hoses to the charcoal canister located near the rear exhaust manifold. Label the hoses for correct installation.
(b) Plug pipe A with your finger and blow compressed air (3 kg/cm2, 43 psi or 294 kPa) through pipe B (fuel tank side).
• Check that air comes out of the bottom pipe C without resistance.
• Check th8t no activated charcoal comes out. If necessary, replace the charcoal canister. NOTE: Do not attempt to wash the charcoal.
(c) Connect the hoses to the charcoal canister.
9. REPLACE GASKET IN FUEL FILLER CAP
(a) Remove the old gasket (O-ring) from the fuel fil cap. Do not damage the cap.
(b) Install the new gasket by hand.
(c) Inspect the cap for damage or cracks.
(d) Install the cap and check the torque limiter.
