I'm changing the timing belt on my 2011 Honda Odyssey. Step 1 in the manual I'm using (Chilton's online) says:
"Turn the crankshaft pulley so its white mark on the crankshaft pulley lines up with the pointer."
"Check that the No. 1 piston top dead center (TDC) mark on the front camshaft pulley and the pointer on the front upper cover are aligned."
My problem is that these two are not lining up at the same time.
How should I proceed? It has been running well except for a loud noise for the first few minutes when the engine is cold. I believe this is a bad timing belt tensioner. (Which is why I'm doing this job)
