SOURCE: top end cam and crank chains are off!

I can help you with this.You have to start all over again.There should be three chains all together. Two short ones and one long one.The two short ones are for the cams. We are going to start with those two first.The 90 degrees they are talking about the timing mark on the gears on the cams should be 90 degrees from the flat surface of the cylinder head.The easiest way to do is find the marks on the gears and then find the links on the chains that are different color line those up with the timing marks on the gears. There should be 12 links one color link to the other. Set those and put the tensioners on little tricky on those. When you are going to set the big chain the cams are going to move some don't worry about as long as those color links stay on the timing marks. They will move a little and it looks like they are off but they are not. Once you do that the long chain also has different color links also align those with the timing marks on the cam sprokets and crank gear.Install your tensioner for the long chain. You have to collapse the tensioner all the way in and install collapse. Once in with a screw driver pry in against the tensioner to realease it. If you fail to do this you will hear chain hitting the metal cover when you start it. Once you have this together you can turn the engine in the direction that it normally runs manually and it shouldbe free. Keep in mind that once you turn the engine you will never get those timing marks to align the way they were it still ok. Hopefully this will help. I have built a lot of these engines for my customers.

What is the correct timing chain installation on 2000 grand cherokee 4.0 engine

the timing marks are to line up and face each other
then fin the chain
then turn the crank until the crank sprocket is facing down timing mark is facing down
the cam mark should be in the 2 oclock position
there should be 15 links between marks
form your description that is what you have done so the problem is not in the timing chain installation
back firing is normally from a valve still open when the spark occurs so check firing order or the distributor installation is not 180 degrees out

Just anted to confirm that my 2005 buick rendezvous has a non interference engine as i need to replace the timing belt/chain and was concerned with driving it

you need to say what engine it has ( 4,v6,v8)
a qualified mechanic always treats an engine as intereference fit regardless because either engine can have valve damage when the failure occurs
If you have not broken a belt or chain and you set the timing marks up properly before removing the belt or chain and do not turn crank or cam/s after the belt/chain is removed there will be no damage done
that only occurs when the crank is or cam/s are turned without the connection to each other

Cx 7 mazda cel codes P0011 and P0016

Causes may include:
  • Timing chain stretched, or timing belt skipped a tooth due to wear
  • Misalignment of timing belt/chain
  • Tone ring on crankshaft slipped/broken
  • Tone ring on camshaft slipped/broken
  • Bad crank sensor
  • Bad cam sensor
  • Damaged wiring to crank/cam sensor
  • Timing belt/chain tensioner damaged
  1. First, visually inspect the cam and crank sensors and their harnesses for damage. If you notice broken/frayed wires, repair and recheck.
  2. If you have access to a scope, check the cam and crank patterns. If a pattern is missing, suspect a bad sensor or a slipping tone ring. Remove the cam gear and the crankshaft harmonic balancer and inspect the tone rings for proper alignment and make sure they're not loose or damaged or that they haven't sheared the key that aligns them. If they are properly installed, replace the sensor.
  3. If the signal appears normal, then check the timing chain/belt for proper alignment. If it's misaligned, check for a damaged tensioner that may have allowed the chain/belt to slip a tooth or several teeth. Also check that the belt/chain isn't stretched. Repair and recheck

I need a picture of the timing marks for Jeep 4.0

Timing the Cam to the Crank

There are several ways to time the cam to the crank. Be sure to check the manual before you install the timing chain or belt.

  • Some timing sprockets are properly timed when the marks face each other.
  • On others, there must be a certain number of chain links between the marks.
  • Sometimes chains have colored links that must be aligned with the marks on the sprockets.
  • Some overhead cams have a mark on the cam gear that lines up with a mark on the cylinder head when the timing mark on the damper is at the TDC mark.
Align the timing marks for the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets before removing the timing belt or chain.

If the old parts are available, carefully compare the new gears or sprockets with the old ones. Check the keyway and timing marks just in case there might have been an error made in manufacturing. Sprockets are sometimes stamped backward. Its much better to find the problem during assembly, rather than waiting until problems show up after reassembly and reinstallation.

Maintaining Valve Timing

During a valve job, it is essential to keep the timing chain or belt in place to maintain correct valve timing. Position the number one cylinder at TDC. Some overhead cam engines use a single long chain for a cam drive. The chain can be wedged against its guides with a tapered block of wood.
the chain tensioner on some ohc engines must be wedged to keep the chain in position during cylinder head removal. courtesy of nissan motors.

Some engines have a lower and upper chain. These engines do not require special attention to wedging the chain. Be sure to look for hidden head bolts and check the repair manual before removing the OHC head.

Need timing chain marks for 02 dodge 4.7

There are no " Marks" to line up. There is a h whole set of alignments you have to do.
The engine needs to be at TDC. there are colored links on both the secondary timing chains that align with A. the holes on the Idler sprocket, 4 O'clock & 8 O'clock. and B. with the cam sprockets having the V8 at the top of both cams the colored chain link aligns with the R or L of the corresponding Right or Left cam. This all needs to be done in proper order at maintain proper valve timing. failure to do so will end up with possible valve to piston damage. It is better to get the book on the truck for $25.00 rather than do hundreds in damage. You can even get DIY subscriptions online delivered right to your computer instantly for about $20.00
Sorry I type way too slow and would take me all night to tell you exactly how to do it.
But if you are engine savvy and have good knowledge as to slack on the timing chain goes on the return side of the chain to cam from crank, (tensioner side) reset your tensioner & pin before you install the chain tensioner. you can do it.

We are installing a timing chain in our 1995 Jeep cherokee sundown edition for the first time can you please send me the timing gear specs the motor is a 4.0 with air. thank you

By :"specs" I assume you need install position? To index the gears, whne you take it apart, turn the crank pulley 'till the timing mark aligns with the "0" on the timing scale. Don't turn the crankshaft again. When you are ready to install the chain, locate the mark on the crank gear and align the mark on the cam gear so they point to each other. The mark on the crank gear should be at 12 o'clock and the cam gear mark at 6 o'clock. Make sure when you put the cam gear on the cam that the location pin fits into the gear to position it correctly. Jeep recommends that after putting the chain and gears on, you rotate the engine by hand and place the crank mark at 6 o'clock and the cam gear at 3 o'clock, then count the number of pins in the chain (pins, not links) between those two points. There should be 15 pins. If you are rebuilding the engine and have the cylinder removed, it's a good time to check the front crank pulley (some have the outer ring move on the rubber). Put a piece of flat steel across #1 cylinder with a bolt through the steel extending into the bore center. Turn the engine by hand 'till the piston contacts the bolt. Make a mark on the pulley and turn the engine in the opposite direction till contact is again made. Your timing mark on the pulley should be exactly between the two marks you made. If not, make a new mark at that point and use that as your actual TDC reference. If it is radically off, replace the pulley.
When setting up cam position I always use a degree wheel. If you are installing an aftermarket cam
its important to do that. If you're just replacing a stock chain, You will be fine with the method I've outlined.

Point tha chain timer altima 94

if you mean the timing chain then on your crank gear and your cam gear there will be a mark on each sometimes they look like a dot the dots need to look like this for perfect timing ( . . ) this will be there closest position. Your crank turns once all the way around (360 degree) and your cam gear will do two complete revolutions to the one of the crank gear. so when you set your marks as above when you turn the crank one half turn the mark on the crank gear will be at the bottom and at the same time your cam gear will have made one complete revolution, so when you turn the crank another half turn your cam would have turned again a complete revolution and the two marks should be at their closet point again.
