The 2.4 is a pain. you need to lay a straight edge across all 4 marks on the cam gears,,,the crank has a notch that lines up with a triangle on the oil pump

Timing belt re-install and engine hard stops when rotating by hand even when timing marks lined up.

That hard stop is the valves hitting the head of the piston, you most likely have bent a valve, you have the valve timing wrong.

Cant get breaks on my 2002 blazer ather break lane breaks

After you fix a brake line, you need to bleed the line. There is air in the line that needs to be bleed out of the line. Make sure the vehicle is not running, totally shut off. First - find which tire the brake line goes to that you just fixed. Two - then have someone in the vehicle pumping the brake three times, then on the third time, have them hold the brake to floor. Three - open the bleeder valve on the brake caliper of the tire that the brake line goes to.(Note - You need the tire off the vehicle to do this.) Four - once the the bleeder valve is opened, and all the brake fluid, and air comes out, close the bleeder valve and repeat the whole process several more time. Each time you bleed the brake line you are releasing the air in the line, and creating pressure with just fluid in the line. Usually three to four tries of bleeding the line will solve the air in the brake line problem and your brake pedal will become hard.

99 chevy vorte marks wont line up

if you lined up marks on cam and crank gears when you installed timing chain and you used the original timing cover and timing mark tab and did not turn engine before checking the marks the balancer is spun and needs to be replkaced if the engine has been turned it may be 180 degrees out of time you will need to turn engine at least two full revolutions and recheck maybe upto 4 times if it still does not line up with all original parts no chrome timing covers or timing tabs the balancer is bad and needs replaced

Im trying to get the timing marks aligned and dont know where to align them to. Its my neighbors car and he doesnt have a service manual. Someone else tried replacing the timing belt for him and didnt...

with the timing belt on the vehicle install the botton piece of the timing cover with crank pulley. line up the notch on the crank pulley with 0 on the timing cover for top dead center on the crank. then there is a small sight hole in the spokes on the camshaft timing gear. with the belt off the timing gear line up that sight hole with a notch behind the gear on the cylinder head. you will only be able to see the notch through the sight hole with a mirror. once these are lined up slide the belt back on the timing gear and recheck afterward. this the procedure for all 5s-fe motors

Chances are your cam sprocket is off one tooth, bring the engine to Top dead center #1 cylinder firing stroke lining up the flywheel timing pointer notch to the timing marked zero. remove the timing belt cover to check that the timing marks line up if not remove tensioner and reset the sprocket so it lines up then reinstall tensioner recheck.

Timing belt changed

it doesn't sound like your timing is lined up properly, it sounds like your timing is out. i recommend you check your timing to your cam and crank to ensure they are lined up

2000 Chevy Silverado Z71 hard to start

Pull the vac line off the regulator right after you stop the engine. See if there is gas in the vac line if so the regulator is bad. If no gas is present it could be the check valve in the fuel pump letting the gas pressure leak down. Get a set of gauges and hook up to the fuel lines and check for pressure loss. You will have some loss but should hold steady for several hours. Another thing to try is turn the key on and off several times before trying to start this will charge the lines if this works every time you are losing fuel pressure. If you still have trouble when doing this I would look somewhere else besides the fuel system

Removing fuel filter

it takes a special tool to disconnect these lines. go to your local auto parts store and ask for the fuel line disconnect tool.once you have the tool put it on the fuel filter prong that the fuel line is connected to and slide the tool up into the gas line, at the same time pull the line away from filter. you may half to try this several times.also when the tool slides up into the line twist the line and push in and out. in short thare is a spring up in that line that gets stiff and corroted so moving the line around while the tool is in place helps free up this sprind.also spray a little lubracant in the ends of the lines before beginning.
