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.

    96 2.4 timing marks are on the cam and crank sprockets and 2 different links of the timing chain. the tensioner is spring loaded. urs must have fallen apart and u didnt see the spring fall out. get a new one.

I need timing belt marks for new timing belt on a 1994 Toyota Camry LE 2.2L 4 cylinder


Firstly the no.1 piston should be at TDC (compression).

The upper camshaft sprocket has a smaller hole in the web. This should be lined up exactly with the TDC timing mark behind it on the cam bearing cap. In this position it will be vertically upwards.

At the same time the notch in the crankshaft pulley timing flange should be opposite the 0 degrees mark on the timing marks on the front of the lower belt cover.

How do i set the camshafts on my 06 kiario. the shop manual i have is a joke. it wont work.


Align the hole in the cam sprocket with the mark on the cylinder head. Align the "T" mark on the timing cover with the marks on the crankshaft pully. If you already have the belt off, you will have to put the cover and the pully back on temporarily to get the crank aligned.

Timing belt marks


The crank pulley should have a mark that is approx 12 o clock with an arrow on the block. Both cams should have marks,'I' for the rear cam and E for the front, and the dowel pins (in the end of each cam)AND the marks on the cam pullies will be 12 o clock with the back cover. Be SURE you TORQUE the crankshaft bolt to 120 ft lbs.

Timing marks


The timing marks are located on the front crankshaft pully, and under the cam shaft cover on the front of the front cam bearing cap and the cam shaft. On number one TDC all of these makes should be aligned,

Hi ive got a daewoo espero the cam belt has come off ive got a new one to put on but need the too time marking s to put the cam belt in right please can you help the model i have a put down isnt my car its...


Required tools: 13mm open end wrench 10mm shallow and deep socket 8mm socket long flathead screwdriver 17mm deep socket T50 torx socket 1/4", 3/8ths and 1/2" ratchets and extensions E10 inverted torx sockets 6mm allen wrench 15mm open end wrench 7mm socket 12mm open end wrench 14mm socket 12mm socket 8mm, 9mm and 10mm allen head sockets 19mm socket prybar needle nose pliers If you are doing this because your timing belt broke you will also need to buy a complete cylinder head, head gasket set, and both idler pullys. ALL DAEWOO MODELS WILL BREAK THE INTAKE AND EXHAUST VALVES WHEN THE TIMING BELT BREAKS. Start by removing the air cleaner assembly from the throttle body, remove the air filter and housing jack up the vehicle and remove the wheel, remove the plastic shielding in front of the accessory drive belt assembly, remove the accessory drive belt, place a jack with a block of wood on top underneath the engine oil pan remove the front engine mount, remove the crank shaft pully ( the 4 allen head bolts only not the 17mm bolt in the center.) remove the metal plate behind the engine mount bracket on the engine, remove the plastic timing belt cover 3 clips on top 2 10mm bolts on bottom. Rotate the engine until the #1 cyl. is at Top Dead Center on the compression stroke or line up the crankshaft timing mark with the mark on the inner timing belt cover ( notch in cover with notch in pully) on the camshaft pullys -- ( intake cam line up the line on the pully with the line on the inner cover)( exhaust cam line up the arrow on the pully with the arrow on the inner cover) loosen the 13mm bolt in the belt tensioner and using the allen wrench rotate the tab until there is slack in the belt. Remove the belt. At this time I would reccomend you replace the water pump, both plastic idler pullys as they tend to overheat and lockup, and the belt tensioner. Make sure all your marks are lined up, you may need a helper to hold the Exhause Cam in place as it tends to move during belt installation. Put the timing belt underneath the crankshaft pully, install the belt leaving the intake cam for last and NO BELT SLACK on the right side between the crank and the exhaust cam. Once the belt is installed rotate the crankshaft over 2 revolutions and make sure is rotates freely, and your timing marks are aligned perfectly if not the engine will not run properly, tension the belt as needed. Installation is the same as removal. To clarify, on the DOHC engine, the intake cam gear has a line on it, and the exhaust cam gear has an arrow on it. These should be lined up with the corresponsing line and arrow on the VALVE COVER, pointing straight up. I just went through this process over the weekend, and spent quite a bit of time looking for these marking as I had removed the valve cover. Once I found them, it was plain and simple. In addition, be sure to not over tighten the belt when reinstalling. The tensioner has markings on it for "old" and "new". DO NOT adjust past "new", as the car will sound like a jet engine, and the belt will not last for very long. One more item that you may as well replace while you are in there is the cam position sensor if you have not already, as there have been issues with them, and the timing housing has to be opened to get to it
