You have to remove the engine covor. Then you have to remove the lifters off the camshaft. You then have to remove the Timing belt. The top gear on the timing belt has to be removed as well. then you pull the Seal out of the Camshaft. Then the Camshaft should come out. You put your new Camshaft in, then put the new seal on the camshaft. Then you put the gear back on. There is a hash mark inside of the gear, that needs to be top center. You then need to take the first spark plug out and put a screw driver in there. you then need to turn the bottom gear (where the timing belt goes) clockwise until you can feel the first cylinder come all the way up(you feel this with the screw driver). then you put the Timing Belt back on without moving any of the gears at all. The lifters have to be torqued on. They just cannot be put back on. There is a torque specification for those lifters, every vehicle is different. When you get those lifters back on, you put the lid to the engine back on. Then you are done. I hope this was helpful.

Timing adjustment for a 1987 buck century estate wagon 3.8 liter v-6


On older vehicles... loosen the bolt holding the distributer and turn a little clockwise or counter clockwise. If you have a timing light plug it into the spark plug wire of the #1 cylinder and look for the timing marks on the front of the harmonic balancer. But you could just wing it without a light.

Ok we changed the ignition module in our 1987 buick century, 2.5 liter and now when you start the car it just dies continuiously but once we get it started it will go but acts like it wants to die at stop...


Did you replace the crank sensor that is bolted to the back of the module? Is it possible that you got two of the plug wires switched. Or maybe 1 of the two coils is bad.

1987 Buick Century Limited V-6 engine w/ac. Engine cranks but won't start. Instrument panel light shows "Service Engine Soon". Also light shows "Oil Choke". And light shows picture of battery.


I took my car to my mechanic. He did a diagnostic circuit test on the engine and then replaced the distributer ignition module and camshaft and crankshaft position sensors.
