SOURCE: need marks for timimg belt

On the crankshaft gear there is a VERY small dimple that aligns with a mark on the motor. The mark on the motor (a small triangle) is at roughly 11 o'clock. After you line these timing marks up look at the camshaft gear and you will see that on one of the spokes there is a hole. You need to use a mirror to line this hole up with the dimple on the cover that is behind the camshaft gear. (It is at roughly 1 o'clock) If this hole is 180 degrees from where it should be you need to rotate the motor 1 more revolution at the crankshaft and it should now be lined up, or close. Once lined up I like to take a silver (metallic) Sharpie and make my own mark on the camshaft gear and on the backing plate that is behind it. You can make this mark where ever it is convenient for you. As long as you know where your marks line up, that is all that matters. This way I don't have to use the mirror as often.

  • Step 5 Once you have your timing marks aligned you need to locate the tensioner. The tensioner obviously keeps the appropriate amount of tension on the timing belt.

    SOURCE: Turn off check engine light 1992 mercedes benz

    The check engine light is on for a reason. You need to pull the error codes, and resolve all of the issues indicated. Then the light will go off.

    If a condition were to happen, and be intermittent, the light would go out....But your description appears to have a fault condition detected. It is better and less expensive to fix the issue(s).

    Replacing timing belt; need timing belt markings for 2000 mazda protege

    If it has the twin camshafts, then you need to align the bottom crankshaft pulley marking (there's only one marking at top dead centre). Then you'll need to align the two camshaft pulleys. You need to use the first two sets of markings and then double check the markings on the camshafts themselves, within the valve cover area. Always double check the crank shaft sensor is aligned properly on re-assembly as misalignment will result in a non-start and you might doubt your own work. Don't worry about timing belt failure or misalignment on the twin cam engine as this is a "safe-engine" and will not result in any damage.

    There really are a lot of steps to go through. But its all straight forward no special tools, though you may need an assistant, and you will have to remove the timing chain and mark everything. It would be best to get a workshop manual.

    Information on codes p0016 and p0017; causes and how to fix them.

    crankshaft/camshaft position correlation error. Can be caused by slipped timing belt or either sensor manfunction. First thing to do is check connectors on both sensors. If good, then you should check the valve timing by inspecting the camshaft sprocket alignment with timing marks. If you need instructions, please let us know.

    Timing marks

    this is an easy one to time. the timing mark for the crank is 0 degrees-do not attempt to tum crank if cam timing is out. there is no distributor on this engine-it is advanced with your intake camshaft. The intake camshaft is the only tricky part to time. Be very careful because at 2500 rpm this cam actually moves forward via cam advance solenoid. It will hit your crank if not timed properly! so with your crank at o degrees-camshafts out of head if you need to turn engine to line up crank-on the exhaust cam(your left)behind the gear(on flange) there will be a hole big enough to put a small punch in that will line up with the top of the deck surface on the outer side(to the left). Now on your intake cam(your right) it will be just the opposite. the hole on the back side of the gear flange will line up on the right with the to p the deck surface. once in line hold intake cam and turn the gear(advancer) all the way to the right)-very important. You will have to start with you intake(put chain on) then line up your exhaust and install timing chain tensioner. always turn engine 360 degrees and recheck before you proceed. At least your at top dead center and you can visually see the lobes on both cams mostly straight up. hope I have been helpful.

    I need a 1992 mercedes 400 se sparkplug wiring diagram

    most older mercedes benz firing orders are written on valve cover. I beleive it will tell you on one of the rear intake manifold runners. the way a benz engine cylinders are marked they read-1 2 3 4 on the l(passanger side) and 5 6 7 8 on the r(drivers side) unstead of 1 3 5 7 and 2 4 6 8. maybe this will help you good luck getting the plug sires back into the plastic troughs.
