SOURCE: where are the timing chain marks ona 2000 pontiac grand am

On a 2.4, there are no timing marks...There are holes in the cam gears that need to be aligned with corresponding holes in the head.
Though it's not terribly difficult to do, it must be done precisely according to instructions or valves will hit the pistons and destroy the engine. You can find instructions for this procedure in haynes and other vehicle service manuals. (too long to write out here).
Remember...this is an exact install...you cannot just get close!!!
Good luck! Post back if you need further specific instructions with any part of the job.

SOURCE: need timing marks for a 1996 pontiac grand am se 2.4 DOHC

YOU WILL SEE A HOLE IN THE CAM GEAR THAT A 3/8 BOLT WILL FIT INTO. PUT A BOLT INTO THE HOLES OF BOTH CAM GEARS. THEN LINE UP THE CRANK PULLEY KEYWAY AT ABOUT 12 O'CLOCK WITH THE MARK ON THE ENGINE BLOCK.

MAKE SURE TO COMPRESS THE CHAIN TENSIONER AND RELEASE IT WHEN THE CHAIN IS IN POSITION.

SOURCE: Replace timing belt on 99 Pontiac Grand Am 2.4 L

This engine is chain drive. You shouldn't need to replace it unless it has a problem. Do you have a problem with it?

SOURCE: where is the timing belt in a pontiac grand am

Routine inspection of the belt may reveal cracks in the belt ribs. These cracks will not impair the belt performance. The belt should be replaced if the belt slip occurs if a section of the belt ribs are missing. A single serpentine drive belt is used to drive all engine accessories. All belt driven accessories are rigidly mounted with the belt tension maintained by a spring loaded tensioner. The indicator on the movable portion of the tensioner must be within the limits of the marks of the stationary portion of the tensioner. Any reading outside of these limits indicates either a defective belt or tensioner.

Fig. To remove the belt, use a 3/8 inch breaker bar in order to rotate the drive belt tensioner in a counterclockwise motion

Good luck.

Does the crankshaft have timing marks on it


The crankshaft doesn't. But the gear that goes on it does. It is a small triangle or a dot.

Timing marks


There should be a dot stamped in one off the teeth. If this is a used gear, you might need to clean it a little to find the dot.

Timing chain setting for 89 Firebird


Yes, there are two timing marks, one on the crank gear, and one on the cam gear. The crank gear mark needs to be at the top, and the cam gear mark needs to be at the bottom (lined up w. one another).
