Timing marks on 1.6 dual over head cam

the geo storm, 1.6 DOHC
the FSM cover it, so does
hint 2, its an Isuzu engine.
its really (makes information easier to find )
4XE1-UW a DOHC 16-valve engine with 130 hp (97 kW)
he DOHC engine was used in the 1990-1991 Isuzu Impulse XS, in the 1990-1991 Isuzu Stylus XS, in the 1990-1991 Geo Storm GSi, and the M100 Lotus Elan.
all that off the wiki,,
all cars rare here.....

1st google hit

This engine is interference type
so when timed, with a new belt
roll engine by hand, with spark plugs out.? do pistons hit valves.
yes, stop, the cam is timed wrong.
no, do a compression test on #1, if pass, do all 4. 150psi min.w.o.t.
wide open throttle
a better test, is a leak down test. x4. by hand.
these acts of kindness to the engine, saves most engines.

if the leak down fails, the timing is wrong, or the valves are already
dont use a fleabay china belt, bet a GATES belt. (they last)
setting the tension is very important to a full life .

How do I fix the door/lock of my 1991 Acura Integra? I can only open the driver side door from the outside

There are only 2 places that you have the problem on the inside door handle. one is at the handle,and the little plastic holder that holds the rod to the handle broke, or the plastic clip the the door lock mechanism broke. the first can be removed without taking the door apart. the inside door handle has a screw holding it in place. you can remove the handle and see if its broken. the second requires you to remove the door panel, to replace the clip that hold the rod to the lock. I door handle in the car is a dealer item only(sorry to tell you that), the clip for the lock, you can get at the auto parts store. hope this helps

How to remove a dash from a 91 chevrolet pickup truck

remove all the screws from around the dash then lower tilt wheel if it has one. pull the insert dash tword you and reach in behind it and undo the clip that holds the speedometer cable in place .. this is a snap just pull the clip forward and the speedometer cable will come free.. when putting back just push it in and it will snap in place. Also there is a wire cluster you will have to release on the back of this dash which is held in with a plastic clip which you will be able to see after getting the speedometer cable loose... just release the clip and pull the wires out from behind the dash .. thanks and holler if you need more.

Gas throttle not working. Found loose part that connects pedal to

Turn car off, push the round throttle under the hood all the way open. Route cable on top and put in the hole, release throttle. That should be about it.

if the performance is the same but no kick when the revs start to rise, it could be the internals of the turbo are worn out, have you had abnormal whistling from the turbo which indicate worn bearings, turbo's last around 100,000 miles before having to be rebuilt, the turbine wears out eventualy as well as the bearings

1991 Lotus Elan SE Turbo problems

Lucasia, please know that if you purchase this car, you will have more fun than you know. Things that you need to know before buying one can be found here:

This will help you immensely. Although this car is fun, it can be quite expensive to repair. There are lots of parts that cross-reference to American cars. You can find a cross-reference list here:

There are others as well.

Also, if you don't mind working on cars yourself, you can save tons of money! I know I have.

If you decide to buy, ENJOY ENJOY ENJOY! Not only will it be fun to drive, it is a rare car as well - 3855 built - another 800 were built later and those are considered the S2 version (if i remember correctly).
