    The Acclaim was available with a choice of several engines. The base engine was a 2.5 L TBI I4 engine producing 100 hp. The optional 141 hp, 3.0 L V6 with MPFI was made by Mitsubishi. Also available in 1989 through 1992 was a turbocharged I4 engine producing 150 hp. In 1993, 1994 and 1995, a flexible-fuel Acclaim was offered, powered by a 107 hp multipoint fuel injected version of the 2.5 L engine specially modified to run on fuel containing up to 85% methanol.Which one is yours?

The keyway and or the dot on the crank should be line at 12 oclock. You will see a point on the oil pump housing to go by. On the camshaft the pointer will be at 12 oclock also. Use the O on the camshaft to the top at mark. Be sure to look at the dist. roter to make sure that it is pointing at the #1 spark plug wire. I could get 180 out of time. If you do it right it should start up right away. then you can use a timing light to finish it.
Good Luck jerry1938@hotmail.com

Timing marks for cams


On the gears at the end of the cams usually. Turn them until they're aligned and put the chain back on per manufacturer specs.

The cam snapped in half. on my 1994 ply. acclaim. and there is only fifty lb's of compression in #1 cylinder, and a major leak in cylinder # 2.


With the cam in 2 pieces it is a sure bet that the half that is not moving will have bent valves from the piston hitting them. It likes a head off for valve replacement

How to change a timing belt toyota vigo engine d4d 2kd


There should be a mark on the cam gear(s) as well as the lower gear driven by the crank indicating TDC(top dead center), with transmission in neutral use a socket wrench with some leverage to turn the crankshaft pulley in the same direction it would turn while running. once the crank is at TDC the cam gears need to align to thier markings, likley at 12 o'clock position. if there is no marks on the bottom gear, unbent a wire coat hanger and remove the spark plug from #1 cylinder and loosly drop the hanger in, make sure nothing falls into the cylinder or any binding occurs in the cylinder. while rotating the crank you can see the wire go up and down as the piston moves, lift the wire a bit every so often to avoid it binding and be sure wire is straight and long enough to always stick up out of the cylinder enough to grab it. when its at its highest point of the compression stroke and just about to go down again, your at TDC and check the cam gear alignment. you should be able to tell the compression stoke from the exhast stroke because you must have it pretty close to start at all, if the cam gear alignment is off by half a rotation, then its the exaust stroke and keep turning. dual cams can be tricky since retentioning the belt will move at least one the gears you just aligned, but you can see how much they move and compensate so once the belt is tight everything is aligned.

I replaced both belts and set the number plug in the up position and adjusted cams and the car would not start. What's I'm doing wrong?


Don't know what size engine ,so assuming it's a six cylinder, 2 belts. There are two up positions on a cylinder. compression stroke and exhaust stroke. you could have the cam/s off 180 degrees.

Changed the water pump on my 1997 passport & now the timing is off.


I assume you are talking about valve timing not igntion timing. If that is the case your water pump maybe run by the timing belt. If it is you would need to completely disassemble the timing cover and set the number one cylinder to TDC (top dead center) on the Compression stroke not the exhaust stroke. Once you do that line the timing marks up on cam gears with marks on the side of the head. Then install a new timing belt and tensioner. It is a good idea to always change the pump and belt together. I would suggest buying a manual for your specific vehicle for specific torque specs and exact locations of components and procedures.

Jumped timing?


It really does sound like the timing went out of whack. The timing belt should be replaced periodically, according to your owner's manual. It may have worn and stretched just enough to slip over a cog a bit. Remove the timing belt covers and check the alignment of your cam and crank. There should be subtle marks on the cogs and the rear cover or casting. The compression will be good during a cranking test, but will not be ok during a running compression check. Replace the timing belt and check the pulleys. If your timing belt did not slip, the timing chain tensioner or guide shoes may be worn and will require replacement.

Timing belt


set the timing marks on the crankshaft and the cam marks head to head the marks should be with the cylinder number 1 an tdc top dead center on the compression stroke then adjust the cam so the marks are aligned remember the number 1 piston has to be @ tdc and the crank and cam marks are lined up ok bye for now good luck with it
