Why doesn't My truck start after changing the Timing belt on My 1999 Ford Ranger?


you need to pull the timing back apart pull the number one spark plug and role the motor over by hand to top dead center on the compression stroke the the mark for the crank should be lined up or almost lined up line it up perfect on its mark then set the cam to its mark install belt role over by hand 2to4 full rotation marks should line up perfect . install crank pulley fire it up for a split second shut it off and put it all back together

Need to time the engine ..trying to put new timing belt on it accidentally moved the top sprocket a bit and lost original timing not starting now...worked perfect before need to know how to put it


you will need to pull the distributor cap off and pull the #1 plug out and timing covers need to come off leave the harmonic balance on or take it off an put it on temporally so you can line up timing marks. with the #1 cylinder at top dead center and the rotor pointing to #1 plug put air into the cylinder to see if it holds compression if it does your in the right postion. Next trun the crank until the cylinder is at the top of the stroke power stroke, next make sure the harmonic balancer marks are lined up next look at the two timing gears I believe they are supposed to point towards each other if not move the one you think is wrong one tooth in the direction oppisite of the way it slipped if it is not lined up you will not have compression pull valve covers off so you can see the valves both the valves should be fully closed on the # 1 plug if it is your timing should be right if one is slightly open then tuen it till the #1 valve is closed and the gear marks line up then slide the belt back on once you are sure you have it set correctly put it all back together to set the timing with the light look at the hood and under the hood it will tell you how to set the timing and how many degrees they very from engine to engine where it was manufactured for and you need to follow the emmison sticker timing proceedure, if you need more information let me know.

Need to set timing marks on a 1986 plymouth reliant


To save some time I'll guess and say it's the SOHC.
1). Make sure the #1 piston is on the compression stroke @ Top Dead Center. You can find the compression stroke by pulling the #1 spark plug and putting your finger over the hole, while a friend bumps the engine. When you feel air come out of the plug hole, your on the compression stroke. Then point the rotor to #1 on the cap, by turning the crankshaft by hand. Then do the timing marks.........
2). The camshaft gear: There should be four large holes and one small hole, the small hole should face perfectly straight up. You can use 2 of the larger holes, one on the left and one on the right from the camshaft attaching bolt, to help line it up correctly. By looking through them, horizontally line them up with the head.
3). The crankshaft gear and the intermediate shaft gear should have a dimple on one of their teeth. Face them to each other.
4). Make sure nothing moves, when installing the belt.
5). Fire it up, before you put everything back together. When it fires, let it run for about 30 seconds to let the belt align itself. Then check all your marks again, to make sure nothing moved.
6). Put it back together.
7). I sincerely hope that this information helped you to get r dun. Best wishes and God Bless.

How to replace timing belt on 1997 kia sportage


you have 2 sprokets to worry about the top two and crank gear, the crank gear has knocht on it and index on block ( towards back of gear visible from top) place on tdc mark ( top dead center), install the timing belt on this gear first then secure it with a piece of hose or anything that fits in between housing and belt to secure belt from moving from gear) then align the right side sproket on "E" for exhaust cam at top marks on cover and sprocket, then install belt over that sprocket, finally align left side sprocket "I" for intake to the top mark and install belt not too tight or it will make noise just make sure it is firm. now to double check from left to right with you standing in front of vehicle you should have left cam sprocket with "I" for intake to the top and right sproket with "E" for exhaust to the top. having bottom gear on tdc (top dead center mark) and all marks lined up with belt installed and proper tension secured, turn engine over twice and make sure marks meet in the same place then put everything back together. ( recommend you replace both idler and tension pulleys and check water pump, replace if needed or you'll be back.- this procedure goes the same to spectra, sephia, sportage, you will not damage the engine on these vehicles if belt goes out except rio. if timing belt goes out on the rio it will need an engine, if lucky just head. recommended replacement on all is every 60k miles) goo luck tightening the power steering drive belt when you put everything back together, just use a long bar to pry and good leverage. and a second hand comes in handy.
