It can not be set, It is preajusted buy the timeing belt marks on the engine when the belt is installed, If the timeing is off the belt will have to be replace, If not it could damage the engine,If it breaks, Then you will have a real costly bill.

SOURCE: need to know how to time a 2.0 l dohc ford engine

With the rocker cover removed , if you look at the back of the camshafts you will see each one has an off centre slot. The way to get them correctly lined up is so each slot runs parallel with the face of the cylinder head. There is a special tool to lock the 2 cams together which is simply nothing more than a flat piece of steel. If you can not borrow this 'tool' the other way is to make sure each cam lobe on no4 cylinder is facing down  and pointing in on the valve tappets.

honestly you just need to buy a chilton or haines. there is a lot more to this than just a couple of instructions. you need a timing gun, tools, and to know where everything is. its easy but you need to see the instructions.

Cant get timing marks to aline what are the timing marks on a 1.6 daul over head cam engine

very old post , and no year car. stated. 1990 to 1993 range.
ILL GUESS< 92, cam.
here is your answer, (the path to it ,too)
this car (sheep skinned) is a really and ISUZU.
for sure the engine. (with long ago lost support by ISUZU in USA)
Geo IS GM, and they may (?) have parts. but support is very poor there on GEO.s
i'd start here.

also , you can buy and old FSM for your car on ebay if patient.
or login to and look there.
1.6L DOHC engine.
I responded because you are one of the only folks posting here
that knows whats under their hood. of the 3 types.
1.6 L SOHC 4XE1 I4
1.6 L DOHC 4XE1 I4
1.8 L DOHC 4XF1 I4

You, engine is a 4xe1 (isuzu sady don't change the engine name with the DOHC up grade , making parts hard to find and books.
Suzuki did the same silly thing too...
as you might guess, the DOHC is timed quite different.
right now im online at alldata.
and you are at step 11. the cam belt
staring at 3 big cam cogs.
here is the drawing. (1 of 2, the 2nd is belt routing)
step 7
Align the crankshaft pulley to TDC
then 11

i feel sorry for any ISUZU owner or GEO's of any kind.
sorry so late.

and last
the best place to look first (no FSM)
is here

see discount to alldata.

2010 suzuki sx4 no spark on coil

first check all fuses !!!!
Problem with 1996 Suzuki Swift????????????????????? 2010 suzuki sx4 no spark on coil????????????????
SX4? (J20 suzuki engine?)
Japanese automaker Suzuki and Italian automaker FIAT
8 different engines used (world-wide), so post engine option.
usa 3: 2010
on all coils?, (you posted 1996 and 2010 at same time)
and swift and SX4 at same time. my guess, is you piggybacked on the swift post with SX4 question, instead of starting a fresh new post?
The SX4 has, COPS are all 4 dead?
it has 4 coils, called COPS. or PACK WITH COILS INSIDE,

IN 2010 we had these optios, which one is yours?
yours is not diesel, as you stated spark. so... down to 2 engine.s
the 2010 model year, SX4 five-door hatchback is available with a 1.6 L DOHC VVT engine, 2.0 L DOHC VVT engine and 2.0 L DDiS diesel engine (16 valve, 135 PS (99 kW; 133 hp) with 320 N·m (240 lb·ft) torque) on the AWD version.
aka: J20A or J20B engines. the B has VVT cam.
my guess? is it's a Suzuki engine in a fiat body?
