Trying to replace broken timing belt. Trying to set #1 cyl. to TDC manually. no compression reading on 1 &4, readings on 2 & 3. What could cause this?? HELP!!


Hole in the piston crown is the worst Charles, but let's not be pessimistic :>(

More likely valves open. At TDC firing stroke both inlet and exhaust valves should be closed. The flat, low part of the cam should be on the followers. So 1 and 4 have valves open, 2 and 3 are closed. If you turn the cam 180 degrees, you should have compression on 1 and 4 and no compression on 2 and 3.

The other thing though, is that when the timing belt breaks, the valves are often in the wrong place at the wrong time and can often meet the piston head on. This can bend the valves. or damage the piston. The normal advice is to remove the cylinder head to check, and then service the valves whilst you have it apart.

A job like this, you need a workshop manual.

Put on a new timing belt now it wont start


I need some clarification. Did you replace the belt because it broke? If so you may need to replace the head. The problem is if the belt breaks when your moving it usually damages the head and thus needs to be replaced.

I changed the water pump on a 2003 galant and now it wont start I took timing belt off did i mess up the timing


If you have already turned it over you may need to give it a compression check to make sure you did not bend your valves. Set your timing mark to top dead center and take off your upper belt cover. Check the cam mark to the timing mark (TDC) on the lower cover. That will tell you if the belt is on correctly. If the timing marks check out you may have just flooded the motor . New plugs will assist in starting the motor if they are just WET fouled.

I need to know how to set the timing belt on a 1995 nissan 3.0 4x4 kingcab truck


I'm going to copy the procedure from Autozone.com below. I've never seen such a complicated way of getting the tension right, but better to follow their instructions, I guess. Note that they ask you to loosen the rocker shafts, but they never tell you to put them back. I will add that.

c42df83.gif
To install:

6. Remove both cylinder head covers and loosen all rocker arm shaft retaining bolts.

The rocker arm shaft bolts MUST be loosened so that the correct belt tension can be obtained.
  1. Install the tensioner and the return spring. Using a hexagon wrench, turn the tensioner clockwise, then temporarily tighten the locknut.
  2. Make sure that the timing belt is clean and free from oil or water, before installation.
  3. Install the timing belt. Align the white lines on the belt with the punchmarks on the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets. Be sure to have the arrow on the timing belt pointing toward the front belt covers.
A good way (although rather tedious) to check for proper timing belt installation is to count the number of belt teeth between the timing marks. There are 133 teeth on the belt; there should be 40 teeth between the timing marks on the left and right-side camshaft sprockets, and 43 teeth between the timing marks on the left-side camshaft sprocket and the crankshaft sprocket.
  1. While keeping the tensioner steady, loosen the locknut with a hexagon wrench.
  2. Turn the tension approximately 70-80 degrees clockwise with the wrench, then tighten the locknut.
  3. Turn the crankshaft in a clockwise direction several times, then slowly set the No. 1 piston to TDC of the compression stroke.
  4. Apply 22 lbs. (10 kg) of pressure (push it in) to the center span of the timing belt between the right-side camshaft sprocket and the tensioner pulley, then loosen the tensioner locknut.
  5. Using a 0.0138 in. (0.35mm) feeler gauge (the actual width of the blade must be 1/2 in. or 12.7mm thick), positioned as shown in the illustration, slowly turn the crankshaft clockwise. The timing belt should move approximately 2 1/2 teeth. Tighten the tensioner locknut, then turn the crankshaft slightly and remove the feeler gauge.
  6. Slowly rotate the crankshaft clockwise several more times , then set the No. 1 piston to TDC of the compression stroke; recheck all alignment marks.
  7. Install the upper and lower timing belt covers.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable.

When installing the rocker arm shafts, be certain that they are installed in their original positions.
  1. Make sure the camshaft knock pin is at the top of the camshaft and that the lobe is not in the lifted position. If servicing the left-side cylinder head, set the No. 1 piston at TDC of its compression stroke, then tighten the rocker shaft bolts for cylinder No. 2, 4 and 6 cylinders. If servicing the right-side cylinder head, set the No. 4 piston at TDC of its compression stroke and tighten the rocker shaft bolts for cylinder No. 1, 3 and 5 cylinder rocker shaft bolts. Tighten all bolts gradually, in two or three stages, to 13-16 ft. lbs. (18-22 Nm).
  2. Install the cylinder head cover(s).

Can you tell me or send me a diagram how to line up my timeing belt on a Geo Tracker


Unfortunately there is more to it. You have to put the #1 Cylinder to Top Dead Center on the compression stroke. You need to make sure the valves are set so the number one set of valves are on the compression stroke. Then you need to align the timing marks on the timing gears correctly and get the timing belt on. If the original belt broke while the engine was running you want to make sure and get that head checked and verified as good. If any of this does not make sense you need to get the Haynes or Chilton's repair manual on your vehicle so you have step by step instructions for doing these steps.

I have a 91 300zx non turbo won't start


Are you sure the new belt didn't jump time? How was the belt tensioner when you replaced yhe belt? Did your water pump leak onto or into your crank sensor?Are you sure you have proper fuel pressure?When you replaced the timing belt, did you make sure to find top dead center on cylinder 1 ? Just lining up the timing marks may not have worked if this is indeed what you did.If you had the crankshaft rotated 180 degrees, your motor would be trying to fire on the exhaust stroke, instead of the compression stroke. To find T.D.C. disconnect your battery,rotate your crankshaft until the piston that is marked #1 in your firing order is at the top of its stroke, this can be accomplished by carefully inserting a wooden or plastic dowel into the sparkplug hole of cylinder#1. The dowel will rise with the piston and at the point where it starts to fall will be T.D.C. Now your timing marks should line up,and you will then be on the compression stroke. good luck! hope this helps

How do i set the timing after replacing the cambelt.


Put the engine at TDC compression stroke , Thats when the valves are both closed on No 1 cyl and the piston is on its compression stroke .then align all cam and crank marks. set dizzy on No 1 cylinder (rotor pointing at #1 plug wire) . rotate engine 2 revolutions and recheck all marks. Fire away

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
