2002 jeep liberty motor-2.4 chain driven component below crankshaft need to find if position matters and how to time


no photos. so help will limited .
all cam timing matters.
"not sure what does", the cam, crank, sprocket or pin?
The 2.4L inline 4 engine, is a throw back old Dodge Neons
DOHC engine ,a twin cam head.
2002 is first year, Liberty in USA>
is this the 2.4L turbo engine, EDZ engine.??
KJ jeep it is.
be nice to say what job your working? HOw'd you get here?
if you buy the service manual from jeep
chapter 9s, covers this 2.4 total engine, in one chapter.
but this engine cams are Belt drive. NOT CHAIN.
first post that it really is, this engine? or the VIN, or photos.

so you must be confused on that is there.
the other engine, the 3.7L is a V6 engine vastly different than the 4 banger.
it has chains.
covered in chapter 9- page 71 +
this v6 has a counterbalancer too.
i recommend reading the FSM book on this engine , after counting cylinder, 4 or 6? and reading chapters 9 or 9s.

see KJ 2002 here
RTM read the manual
seen here

Diagram timing of v6 engine of liberty 2001 model


2001 , no such ani-mule !
"Introduced for the 2002 model year as a replacement for the Cherokee (XJ),"
you meant manufactures date not model and reg. date. sure.
2002 !
3.7L V6 (cop spark ) chain drive cams....
timing ( cam or spark?)
"Ignition timing is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). No adjustment is possible"
so Cam timing (alldata.com covers this in detail)
why not post the context, Im doing what.?
im doing a 60k belt swap
or it slipped. or think id did.
or just put in a new head or cam? see , context is 100% important.
im here, going to there.....
im on line, and it shows 4 engines, i think that is wrong, but...

you must be asking chain cam sprocket timing.
im at alldata.com (or FSM)
there are 37 install steps, im not sure what step you want me
to pluck out. but here is my guess. step 8 ,9,10
  1. Install both secondary chains onto the idler sprocket. Align two plated links on the secondary chains to be visible through the two lower openings on the idler sprocket (4 o'clock and 8 o'clock). Once the secondary timing chains are installed, position special tool 8429 to hold chains in place for installation.
  2. Align primary chain double plated links with the timing mark at 12 o'clock on the idler sprocket.
  3. Align the primary chain single plated link with the timing mark at 6 o'clock on the crankshaft sprocket.
step 12:
Install all chains, crankshaft sprocket, and idler sprocket as an assembly . After guiding both secondary chains through the block and cylinder head openings, affix chains with a elastic strap or equivalent. This will maintain tension on chains to aid in installation. Align the timing mark on the idler sprocket gear to the timing mark on the counterbalance shaft drive gear, then seat idler sprocket fully . Before installing idler sprocket bolt, lubricate washer with oil, and tighten idler sprocket assembly retaining bolt to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).

step 13:
  1. Align left camshaft sprocket "L" dot to plated link on chain.
  2. Align right camshaft sprocket "R" dot to plated link on chain.

step 15/16
  1. Remove Special Tool 8429, then attach both sprockets to camshafts. Remove excess oil from bolts, then Install sprocket bolts, but do not tighten at this time.
  2. Verify that all plated links are aligned with the marks on all sprockets and the "V6" marks on camshaft sprockets are at the 12 o'clock position.

do ask questions, or login to alldata.com or mitchels
or get a real FSM.
its nothing trivial.

in fact get the book before the job. so are perpared.

How do I put timing back after I changer the timing belt


Hi there, Yeah this is a bit tricky. First things first. what engine do you have in ? Double cams have unique marks. You will see the left cam sprocket should be aligned with "IN" on the intake side and "Exhaust" on the exhaust side. On the same sprocket is a indent line on the edge of the sprocket on the exhaust side. The sprocket on the right side "Exhaust side", should be aligned exactly as the left one. So you have both sprockets aligned with the "intake" facing the intake side and the exhaust facing the exhaust side. You will now notice that there is a line up indent on the outer ring of both sprockets. These should be exactly facing towards each other. Now caution is advised here, even before you start with this, you must move your crankshaft sprocket to the left just so that all pistons are half way up. This will make sure when you do turn the cam shafts that the valves don't interfere with any piston. Now adjust the cam shafts as described above and use inventful mind to lock both cam sprockets in line together. Make dead sure with use of a ruler, that the lines on both sprockets are definitely lined up. Now move your crankshaft sprocket to the right and line up the two markers on the outer side with the line directly above further away from the TDC marks, "Located to the left". So to the right of those TDC marks is a Forged out line. Line the two dots on the c-shaft up with this line. When done with this you may fit on the belt and make sure that the belt is fitted tightly on the exhaust side meaning pulled to near tension, then follow through to the left cam and then over the water pump. Fit on the tension-er. Here you get two different types of tension-ers. Automatic one is fitted under the intake side cam sprocket, it gets hold down with a bolt. the wire fitted with the tension-er loops over a bolt already fitted on the motor. Using a allen key turn the tension er so that the align plate with v-shaped indent is facing directly to the bottom loop of the wire. Then tighten the bolt hold down to lock the tension er in place. Lastly the ideal method before you fire up the engine is to remove the negative battery terminal and after you have fitted the external belt sprockets, on the crankshaft is to turn the engine clock wise and make sure that no valve is interfering with a piston. Turn until you can see the timing marks you just setup aligns back to normal. On the outer belt sprocket fitted on the c-shaft, there is a mark as well, this should also line up with the line further away to the right from the other marks to the left located on the belt cover. When you have spun the c-shaft clockwise, about eight times and all the marks align back to normal without any valve interfering with any piston, you may finish of the rest and fire up. Here your good to go. Good luck

1995 toyota camry leaking oil from behind the timing belt cover. Isn't this a major repair? Is the leak more than likely a camshaft seal?


If you haven't had the timing belt replace (60,000 miles is the suggested service intervale) this is an overlap of having the timing belt replaced.
If the timing belt is not due for replacement and its the cam shaft seal that is leaking. Its a pretty easy fix. Remove the top timing belt cover , and the crankshaft sensor wiring you may have to remove the front engine mount . Set #1 piston at TDC, Loosen tensioner w/ spring slip off belt. **Remove sprocket pull out old seal with a sharp pick. Greese and install new seal make sure its flush with its bore . Reistall sprocket. Slide belt over Cam sprocket tighten tensioner. Install cover and mount (if applicable) Check timing marks by turning crank two revolutions.
** If CamSprocket Bolt is difficult to remove then remove valve cover and use a 21mm wrench to hold the Camshaft while you crack off Cam Sprocket Bolt.
You will see the groves on the Camshaft where you can place a wrench to hold the shaft.
After you replaced the seal replace the valve cover gasket ONLY IF YOU HAD TO REMOVE THE COVER TO HOLD THE CAM WHILE REMOVING ITS BOLT.

This is about as major as it gets.

Need procedures on replacing the timing belt on a 2005 jeep liberty 2.4L engine.


first thing to do is disconnect the battery, then put a socket on the belt tensioner and rotate counter-clockwise to loosen and remove the belt. next locate the timing belt sprocket case (in front of the engine, top middle of engine) remove the screws holding the casing on. when you have it off you should see the 2 sprockets holding the timing belt, be careful to line up the 2 notches on the sprockets ( to do this you must turn the engine crank by hand using a wrench or ratchet) by this time you should see the bottom of the casing that houses the timing belt. remove the lower case and u should see the whole timing belt and set up. hop this helps you out.
