How to set timing on 97 toyota corolla 1.6l i have set harmonic balence at 0 degrees and aligned knock pin hole with cam shaft notch still wont start


Camshaft gear pin hole aligns with a notch in the camshaft bearing cap, exactly behind the gear. You do not mention if you checked the marks on both cams, before going into the timing belt. they do not move, unless you removed one or both of the cams.

Is it possible that the error codes I am getting are caused because I messed up the timing when the camshaft moved during timing chain installation?


cam shaft moving... i wouldn't think the shaft moving would do it, nothing was running, but your timing is more then likely off if you didnt time it to factory settings if you have ..then
the codes bank 1 and 2 could be pointing to your O2 sensors EGR is very much aprt of the O2's and it's function.

Remove the Camshaft timing gear (VVTI)


I am not sure how it can be out of time when the dots * to * line up exactly on both the front and rear cam. I just dont understand how one is supposed to get the service bolt in the rear cam since it is on the bottom of the exhaust gear.

You can rotate the cam/crank into a positon that will not move as you remove the old belt, as long as the new belt places the cam/crank in same position as the old belt had them, it don't matter where the timing marks are. Leave your old belt on, rotate to a position that will not move or have tension on belt, (no matter the marks) and replace the belt. Make sure to recheck timing marks after new belt is installed by rotating the crank/cam back to timing marks, or just trust that the belt was replaced without the cam or crank rotated. Easy off, easy on, just make sure the cam/crank are still in time as the old belt had them located. NOTE: timing marks are there in case of a broke belt, or for a car that has jumped time. As long as cam and crank are held in same positon, and car was in time before the procedure, it don't matter where the timing marks are at during belt replacement.

Bmw316 will crank but not start code reader saying camshaft sensor


make shore that your timing is 100% use correct cam locks(can be obtained from tool supplier) and crank lock pin (7mm Drill bit will work )There is a hole on the back of the engine(under the starter motor) usually has a plastic plug in it pull the plug out and turn motor over until fly wheal locks up make shore piston 1 is at tdc also make shore that the vibration damper (front pulley is not damaged or that the tooth gear on the pulley has moved

I recently removed both my cams on my engine, but the front exhaust cam has a gear like sprocket on the right side of the cam, that the positioning sensor reads. my problem is that i accidently moved that...


hi, normally the camshafts have a timing GROOVE at the back. if you select a suitable length of flat bar and place into the GROOVE. you will also need to TIME UP the CRANKSHAFT and INJECTION PUMP. these can MOVE and DAMAGE WILL OCCUR.

the camshafts are marked IN and EX

p.s. you did not give a YEAR or PETROL / DIESEL or TYPE. gerry

Need timing marks for 2002 ford explorer 4.0 engine. trying 2 check timing chain. any one know specs


There are no marks on this one. There is a special tool set to align camshafts ($900). The best you can do is to bring #1 cyl to TDC compression with both cam(valve) covers off. #5 cyl should have lobes at equal opening, exhaust just closing and intake just opening.. #1 cyl cam lobes should each be diametrically opposed to the positions of #5. If cams need to be moved, there is no registration of gear onto cam. Just loosen bolt holding gear and move cam. Retighten bolt. Roll thru 2 crank revolutions and check cam timing again.Simple.

Timing my 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GST


the timing marks on your crank and cam crank need to be one on top of the other if you understand what i mean. anyway if this is done correctly, your cam should make two revolutions to one of the crank thus after one full revolution of the crankshat gear your camshaft gear should do 2 revolutions and you timing marks should be next to one another

Replacing timing gear on 300 6 cylinder and noticed that the camshaft moves in and out about a quarter inch.


End play is pretty much normal on most cams. If yours has a thrust plate holding it into the block, check it for wear (though it won't account for 1/4") On racemobiles & some GM engines a thrust button is used on the end which rides against timing cover to lessen movement. BUT, I would not worry about it! More important is that you index the gears properly. TIP: oil the chain before closing it up... it helps to avoid dry start up wear. The cam gears/chain see the oil last out of everything in the engine.
