How do I change timing chain on Toyota corolla 1.6 4 cylinder. How do I find top dead center for cylinder number one

Basically, #1 piston should be all the way up, with the intake valve past opening and now closed and the exhaust valve just about to start opening. Buy a cheap shop manual to insure you get this correct or you will be very sorry.

How do you set the timing on 06 dakota 3.7 lit.

Are we talking cam timing or ignition timing? Cam timing you will have to line the dots up on the cam and crank gears when installing the timing chain. Ignition timing is controlled by the computer for the most part, you just have to make sure that the rotor of the distributor is lined up with the number 1 spark plug wire on the distributor cap when the engine is at Top Dead Center (TDC) of the compression stroke of the number 1 cylinder.

Im replacing the timing chaine and I need to know what the timing specs are.

You don't need to know timing specs unless your installing a high performance cam and you have an adjustable timing chain set. You didn't spec the moter and there's more than one that comes in your car 3.9, 4.0,4.7, 5.2, 5.9. Tell what motor your working on and what kind of timing componants your trying to install. and I'll help you more. Stock or replacement stock you just line upp the marks. tell the engine I'll tell you where the marks are. If in doubt the intake valve opens between10 and 3 degrees before top dead center about on any engine some racing engines open the intake as much as 23 degrees before TDC but they don't idel smooth and their drivers don't care either.
