Hello timing takes some experience from what your explaining sounds like your on the wrong compression stroke what you need to do is pull #1 spark plug while someone clicks not start put your thumb over until you feel compression push off then get a screw driver put into the cylinder you want to see were the pistons at you want it almost at the top now go to your timing mark at your crank pulley your pointer should be turned to tdc re align your camshaft marks reinstall belt turn motor by hand or click turn recheck lineup of marks if okay reinstall plug try to start goodluck

94 pathfinder v6 auto 4x4 .engine died nuw wont start ,turns over and tries to fire,maybe the timing belt broke?if so would the valve train be damaged Thanks Barry


This vehicle has an interference engine (v6-VG30E), If the timing belt ran or snapped while running, its very possible the engine is severely damaged. Hopefully this helps!!

How hard is it to change a cambelt on a bmw 320i e30?


You said E30, 320i correct? Your engine is a 2.0L 4 Cylinder engine? If so it does not have a timing belt, it has a chain, upper and lower gears and two chain slides. To change the timing chain and slide set is not easy if you have never done one, neither is the belt on the 6 cylinder engines. I recommend a reputable BMW shop.

Broken Timing belt


this is an interference motor, if cranked the valves will come into contact with the piston and cause major damage. Its very possible that valves may have bent(worst case). Have the belt replaced and engine pressure tested. Hopefully its not the worst case.

I need the piston firing order for a VG30E or a VG30ode


My sincere apologies for the extremely delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions.

I have only been a free contributor to this site for the past 4-months.

I do not know if you still need this information, but I am going ahead and answering it anyway.


1. Non Turbo =VG30E. Turbo = VG30ET. In any case the Engine Cylinder numbers, Firing Order, and Distributor Connections are the same.

For the 3.0L:
Firing Order:
1-2-3-4-5-6
Cylinders:
(back of engine)
5--------6
3--------4
1--------2
(front of engine)
Distributor:
....(back)
.6......5......4
.|.......|........|
V......V......V
|..................|
|..................|
^.......^.......^
.|........|........|
1.......2.......3
....(front)

2. I am not sure what what "cam adjustments" you were looking for. I am sure you probably have taken care of that or found what you were looking for. However, in most cases the person is really asking about the Timing issue.

Click on the following Link for the Timing Belt/Chain Diagrams.

Again, my sincerest apologies:
