    This is a very hard thing to describe but here it goes. On my H22a my timing belt seems to rattle around a lot at and above idle. When the car is off there is about a 1/2 inch of movement also the belt seems to be shifting to the right of the pulleys. The belt is fairly new and in good condition(no cracks or split that I can see) but I fear for my motor any suggestions? I hate to take it to the shop no one touches my baby thank you for your help.

    Yup sounds like the classic h22 tensioner issue.

    get a manual tensioner off a old H23A, gotta remove automatic tensioner, balancer belt adjuster, timing belt adjuster, timing belt, crank position sensor
