Hey fellow aveo owners,
I'm in the process of replacing my timing belt and had a couple questions that I couldn't find answers to anywhere else online. I have just removed the harmonic balancer bolt, taken off the pulley, and reinserted the bolt in order to manually turn the crankshaft to check timing. My problem is that the crankshaft only turns clockwise about 20% of the way before it gets stuck, and won't turn any further. From the point it gets stuck, it can turn clockwise another 20% before getting stuck again.
I was wondering if you guys had any tips about what might be causing it to stick. Did I mess something up in the crank/camshaft system? Has anyone experienced this problem before? I appreciate any feedback
