Attach the spark lead to the number one spark plug.
If the timing light is a powered type then
Attach the power leads of the timing light to the battery - red lead to the + terminal on the battery and the black lead to the - terminal on the battery.

Loosen the distributor so you can adjust the timing, start the engine and press the timing light trigger and aim the timing light on the timing marks on the crankshaft pulley. Adjust the distributor to the recommended timing mark for your engine.
Turn off the engine, remove the timing gun and tighten the lock on the distributor.

2000 nissan frontier 3.3 v6 , put new fuel pump in , new distrubutor, new spark plugs, won't start ?


You seem to of covered most bases but are all of the things (air/ gas/ spark getting to the engine at the right time in the right amounts. FUEL PRESSURE? FUEL INJECTORS FIRING AT THE RIGHT TIME? SPARKING ? AT THE RIGHT TIME? PROPER AIR INTAKE (EMISSIONS?) You have may have to look into cam & crank sensors.

Crank but no start after timing and water pump strong gas smell from plenum on right side i believe


double check your timing setup again. http://ww2.justanswer.com/uploads/KALAMYKID/2011-01-31_054854_timing_marks.jpg

They have to be dead on. it sounds to me that its putting in fuel after the spark.which also makes me think timing. Putting the belt on counterclockwise is important too.

Maybe have someone crank it with a plug out and see if the plug sparks when the piston is right past TDC. Unplug the fuel injector or unscrew it and hang it in an empty bottle to make sure its spraying fuel at the right time.

One of those is out of sync from what youre describing.

Why is my 1990 grand am 3.2 v6 sputtering and back firing after I changed timing chain


you must of not put the chain on right. to set it right you must have the number one pistion at the top of cylinder on compression stroke. then line up your timeing marks on the cam shaft then put on the chain.

I just put a timimg chain an water pump in a 2001 chrysler sebring 2.7 liter engine an it will back firer at start up an not run .no matter how many times i check timing marks everytime it seems to no


I just recently experienced the same problem. The timing is 180 degrees out. Unfortunately the only way to correct it is to take the engine apart again. Set the right hand camshaft to TDC by using the marks on the timing gear for that bank. The left will follow to the degree it can although you will have to manually hold the cam in position when you put the timing gear back on. Now you can remove the timing chain. The crank TDC indicator may not be right on but it will be close. Rotate the crank CW one revolution to the point the TDC marks are lined up. Now install the timing chain according to the instructions. The timing gears on the camshafts will only go on one way as the bolt holes are slightly off the extreme diameter of the gear. If you put the chain back on making sure that all the marks are proper, she'll fire on the second cylinder up. Not a fun job I know, but when everything works right, you do get a sense of satisfaction.

When setting the timing marks together distributor always points to #6 not #1 put new timing chain & gears in but cant get it timed right 5.2


Is it possible to turn the distributor shaft 180 degrees and reinstall the dist ?
I am assuming you have spark at the plugs, just not at the right time ?
If the distributor has not been moved, and the rotor points to the wrong wire, you could have put the cam gear in upside down ?

Installed timing belt and put everyting back but know my toyota runs rough, Have cheaked many times if timing was wrong. but its is, what can it be ???


You need to verify that the cams are timed, Yous ay you checked timing, do you mean cam timing or ignition timing. the ignition timing is based on the left cam, if the right cam is off, the ign timing will be ok. if you ck compression on left side, and its different (lower)on the right side the cam timing is off. this is assuming you have put evrerything back in correctly.

Need to time the engine ..trying to put new timing belt on it accidentally moved the top sprocket a bit and lost original timing not starting now...worked perfect before need to know how to put it


you will need to pull the distributor cap off and pull the #1 plug out and timing covers need to come off leave the harmonic balance on or take it off an put it on temporally so you can line up timing marks. with the #1 cylinder at top dead center and the rotor pointing to #1 plug put air into the cylinder to see if it holds compression if it does your in the right postion. Next trun the crank until the cylinder is at the top of the stroke power stroke, next make sure the harmonic balancer marks are lined up next look at the two timing gears I believe they are supposed to point towards each other if not move the one you think is wrong one tooth in the direction oppisite of the way it slipped if it is not lined up you will not have compression pull valve covers off so you can see the valves both the valves should be fully closed on the # 1 plug if it is your timing should be right if one is slightly open then tuen it till the #1 valve is closed and the gear marks line up then slide the belt back on once you are sure you have it set correctly put it all back together to set the timing with the light look at the hood and under the hood it will tell you how to set the timing and how many degrees they very from engine to engine where it was manufactured for and you need to follow the emmison sticker timing proceedure, if you need more information let me know.
