Re: Where to put the timing marks on a 96' nissan 2.4...
The timing chain tensioner is hydraulic and either out of adjustment or defective. You need to remove the timing chain cover and reset the mechanical correlation between the crankshaft and the camshafts. also the other ignition time marks are on the crankshaft harmonic balancer and the cam cover. Do not crank the engine with the timing out of sequence or you'll destroy the engine.

Hi,just inline the crankshaft to the top dead centre marks,then check that the camshaft marks line up,if they dont line up then turn the crankshaft pully again untill the camshaft marks line up,slacken the timeing belt pully adjuster take belt off and replace with new one,tighten the pully adjuster back up,now put a spanner on the crakshaft pully and turn clockwise untill the top dead centre marks and the camshaft marks inline if they dont then slacken the ajusting pully inline marks again and try again,if marks do inline ok then you are ready to start the car.
hope this helps good luck.
it 1-6-2-4-3-5 rotor turn counter clock ward if you pull the cap off you see the rotor line up the timing mark on the crankshaft pulley to the pointer on the belt cover the zero mark is the farthest one to the left when facing the front of the engine.if i'm right the color is yellow.
Timing marks are always on the harmonic balancer,that;s what the pullys blot to that drive your belts.Once you've found said marks by turning the crankshaft pullys by hand,using the belt to do so,scribe said proper timing mark with a white paint pen.Match that mark with the tab on the engine block at the harmonic balancer.Pacience my friend.
start by removing top front camshaft cover ,revealing camshaft sprockets. now jack veihcul up and place on stands. remove left hand front wheel (cam belt side) . remove power sterring belt and alternater belt.looking at crankshaft pully and using an 18mm socket and bar rotate pully until all three marks line up. crank on 1st timing mark and and cam marks facing each other when all three line up you can then remove crankshaft pully , you will need an impact wrench that can torque up to 300lbs .when pully has been removed you can then remove the lower belt cover you will then see the belt tensioner and unbolt and remove , now place a jack with protection under sump and remove bolts on engine mount, when you have separted the 2 halves of the engine mount you can remove the belt and install new belt , k,series cam holder tool is use full for re-alineing cam marks camshaft marks facing each other and crank line up with raised mark on engine block,it is then a case of putting every thing back inthe same order it came off.there are 2 type of cam belt tensioner you can email me and i will tell you how to do each type. firstname.lastname@example.org.
It sounds like timing issues or the spark plug sequence is incorrect. To check the timing, remove the number one spark plug. Place a long screwdriver into the spark plug hole. Rotate the engine by using a ratchet and socket on the crankshaft pully nut (clockwise) and watch the screwdriver. When the timing marks in the crankshaft pully are aligned with "O" or "TDC" (top dead center) the screwdriver should be all the way out of the hole, just inside about 1 or 2 inches. If you rotate the crankshaft just a bit the screwdriver will start to go down, back the pully up to the 0 or TDC mark and the screwdriver will go back up. The is the properly timed engine. Sometimes the engine will skip a couple of teeth due to a worn timing belt. Replace the timing belt and re-time the engine. Good luck, Jim
There are two. One is at the very center top of the head. It is a little arrow. The other is to the right hand side. Also a little arrow type mark.The Crankshaft mark is on the gear and another arrow mark on the engine.
You are quite right, there are no timing marks on the camshaft pulleys. One of the marks on the crankshaft pulley, the one that is furthest counter-clockwise, lines up with a raised mark on the oil pan,at about 5 O-Clock as viewed from the front. The special tool to position the camshafts is a straight bar that aligns the slots on the rear of the camshafts. These are supposed to be aligned before the belt is removed. If the engine is turned without the belt installed, some of the valves can be damaged. Hope this helps.
