I need to find settings for cam and crank to replace timing belt.
I just replaced the water pump and have to replace the timing belt. I marked the old one, but I want to replace it...Where do I need to set marks for replacement? I see 3r and 3l on the cams, but no mark on the crank?

www.cargurus.com > Questions > Dodge > Journey CarGurusJan 18, 2015 - I have went in and replaced the water pump and the timing belt. ...Align the crankshaft sprocket (10) with the TDC mark (9) on the oil pump cover. 2. ...and then just shut off and won't restart? try unplugging the cam ... The two timingmarks for the camshafts are lined up and the crank is lined up with TDC.
In general, backfiring indicates the cam, crank and ignition are out of time or out of phase. The timing marks on the crank and cam just line up the timing of the cam and crank. The alignment of the spark with them has to be phased at the right time too. Check the manual for how to set the distributor timing after an engine repair
line up the marks on crank shaft gear arrow to arrow, the front cam gear the mark goes to the middle on the rear cam gear the mark goes one notch below front gear mark they line up when the tension is put on belt.
One assumes the reference here is to the timing belt running hidden under a cover on the passenger side of the engine and NOT one of the external belts that drive the alternator, AC pump and power steering pump.
The timing belt requires precision installation. Its typically a full day task for an experienced mechanic with air tools. Precision installation first requires precision removal and preparation. To access the timing belt remove the passenger front wheel and the center sections only of the wheel well liner that expose view to side of engine. Then loosen tensioner bolts on external belts and remove external belts from the center main drive sheave. They can hang on the remote drive sheaves if desired. Remove upper and lower external covers from timing belt. Using old cloth, wipe the back-wall of the timing enclosure clean of dust and check for oil or coolant leaks. Find yellow chalk or Yellow lumber marking crayon. Look very carefully with bright light for timing marks on anything that rotates and for corresponding mark. At TDC of cylinder 1 all observable marks should simultaneously align. Cylinder 1 is on the rear engine bank closest to passenger seat. Rotate engine manually with battery disconnected and ignition off until alignment of all marks observed. Only then do you release the tensioner and remove the old timing belt. While the timing belt is removed is an excellent time to replace the cooling water pump. There is no timing mark on the water pump, only on the sheaves that drive the camshafts and on the main drive sheave. Also no timing marks on the idler pulleys.
Once the new belt is installed with everything verified in proper alignment and new water pump installed too, the idler pulleys can be set and spring loaded. Then manually rotate the engine through one complete cycle until all marks aligned again. Check torque on all bolts, then start reassembly of timing belt shield first, then external belts and adjust tensioners. Reinstall center wheel well liner sections and then reinstall the wheel and torque the lug nuts.
Reconnect the battery and start the vehicle. If all properly aligned it will immediately start. If anything improperly aligned, you now have BIG problem and likely permanent engine damage. Alignment of the timing belt rollers and sheaves absolutely critical, one omission and the engine is toast. Do it right and enjoy another 60K miles before you have to change the Kia timing belt yet again.
You can rotate the cam/crank into a positon that will not move as you remove the old belt, as long as the new belt places the cam/crank in same position as the old belt had them, it don't matter where the timing marks are. Leave your old belt on, rotate to a position that will not move or have tension on belt, (no matter the marks) and replace the belt. Make sure to recheck timing marks after new belt is installed by rotating the crank/cam back to timing marks, or just trust that the belt was replaced without the cam or crank rotated. Easy off, easy on, just make sure the cam/crank are still in time as the old belt had them located. NOTE: timing marks are there in case of a broke belt, or for a car that has jumped time. As long as cam and crank are held in same positon, and car was in time before the procedure, it don't matter where the timing marks are at during belt replacement.
you dont,make sure you have the proper replacemend belt at hand. get a very clean cloth and clean the front off gears and look for timing marks look very carefuly they are there, move the crank into position and line the marks on all gears with the marks on the back markings [clean both front and back of plates you will see both markings],reliese the tentioner and remove old belt,replace with new belt and after making sure everything is lined and i mean lined no room for a tooth out reliese tentioner,job done re check until happy replace everything and hope you are ok.adrian,,,ps water pump does not have a marking but should be replaced.
confirm you timing belt marking at the engine before you start the work. then dismantle all the belt one by one until you reach the timing cover. mark the timing mark again. then start dismantle the timing belt set. after all the belt are out, open the water pump and start to put back the new part by using reverse order from the opening list. make sure the timing marking are the same as you check at the first time. before you start the engine, make sure you turn the engine 2 or 3 round and make sure no part are hitting. good luck.
Your water pump is driven by your timing belt, can not be seen with out remove timing belt cover, to replace you will also have to remove timing belt, if timing belt has not been replace best to replace it now also, timing belt should be replace every 60,000 miles. make sure before removing timing belt that you mark where all pulley gear's are at, so when you install the timing belt back on there in the same place as before you move the timing belt, no need to mark water pump gear,good luck,hope this was very helpful.
Set your timing mark on outer cover to the flywheel timing mark on pulley(T mark), then take the covers off and look you will clearly see marks that line up on the cam pulley to block,crank gear to block, and water pump shaft to crank (separate belt replace both, and replace water pump in high mile cars. ) These marks will all line up when you rotate the motor to top dead center on the compression stroke..
timing marks are easy to see,(on the top of gears and line up with the metal indents above them) change the water pump it idles on it... you need a cam holder to hold your cam gears in place when changing they will spin when you take off the old belt... it is an easy timing belt for a *** V6...!
