    cant find timing chain marks

  • Anonymous Mar 22, 2014

    My car is loud and the check engine light keeps coming on. I was told by a mechanic that it has a leaking head gasket, but he never works on head gaskets, just replaces the engine. I was told that there are places that repair leaking head gaskets. I would like to know how much it will cost to repair it, as opposed to getting another engine.

The cam cover has to be removed and a special locking tool locks the two cams at the end. There is also another tool to lock the crank which is at the front of the engine near the gearbox, there is a bolt that has to be removed first.

Cam timing for ford focus 2004 duratec 1.6


Are you needing the twin independent variable cam timing info or is this a cam replacement initial cam timing setting? the variable valve timing itself is dependent upon the part design, and is usually controlled by oil flow (causing the timing to change hydraulically and seems transparent to the driver). However, when replacing the cam, the timing is more of a position issue using the marks on the engine and camshafts to make sure the shafts are in the proper position.
If this is for a replacement, use the marks on the block ensuring the current valve position is the proper in relation to piston position (otherwise your pistons will punch the valves and blow the head)

There are no timing marks. Special tools are required to lock the cams and crankshaft in place while the belt is reinstalled.
