SOURCE: Mercedes-benz 1995 320c engine breakdown

This engine is timed at t.d.c.. With the crank at 0 degrees you will start with your intake cam. this cam is hollow and advances( it actually moves to the right after 2500 rpm ) because it has a distributerless ign.. The timing marks for the cams are holes in the back of the gear flange where you can put a small 3 or 4mm. punch through the back of the flange resting the punch on the top of the head. the hole will be to your right on the intake and to your left on the exhaust( outside towards the manifold) When you get the intake cam timed hold the cam and turn the gear to the left as far as you can( if you look at the top of the advancer you can see the mechanism resting against the housing) If you do not the cam will over advance and hit a piston. Time the exhaust cam and put in your tensioner( I always reset the tensioner by knocking out the insert and starting it at the first detent( replace if possible). turn the engine around by hand and double check your marks you may have to move one of your cams a tooth to the left or right. Good luck

SOURCE: mercedes e230 1998. cold starting.

Mercedes has a cold start valve to spray extra fuel to assist the ignition when the temperature is cold. This is the problem with the cold start valve is not opened when it needed. There are 2 possible causes: 1- The valve is bad. 2- The coolant temperature sensor is bad.
The valve part is expensive and labor is not cheap. The first economic way to address is to replace the coolant temperature sensor. This sensor gives a different resistance reading as temperature changed. When it is bad, it give an erratic reading at cold temperature so the ECM could not recognize to give a signal to open the Cold start valve.

If that motor doesn't have hydraulic lifters, try loosening your rocker shafts. It will clatter, but it will run. That's what I had to do on my old slant 6.

How to get the timing right on an ford escort zx2 1998 my timing belt broke and it out of time and i need help to get it back into time with the 2 cames


On the zx2 the cam shafts over the valves have to be viseversa the nuges sould look different on both like one nuge sould be up one and directly across from it should be down make sure when you looking at the front of the engine that there is groves on the right of cam shafts, you should be able to fit a flat bar an a flat piece of metal in there to keep it aligened as you put the belt on as you look at the bottom gear behind the passanger tire there is a incrament on it that mark should be at 12 o clock using the gasket from the oil pan as the starting point sence the oil pan is at a angle make sure the incrament on the gear is at a 90 degree angle from the gasket on the oil pan put the belt on with out any thing moveing its easier to put the timeing belt on with it being on the bottom gear first and then puting it on the top two with out moving the cams or the bottom gear once on remove the metal piece holding the shafts in place and put every thing back together .
Note: if you have issues with the timing belt walking off the gears, then you may have a worn or tapered lower timinggear. The early engines had a two-piece design that was prone to this type of failure.

Focus timing belt replacement.


This is a very very easy timing belt setup. first off you have to remove the valve cover. Then you have to remove the serp belt. Then remove anything thats in your way of the front cover. after you remove the crank pulley re-install the crank bolt. DO NOT LOSEN THE BOLT FOR THE TENSIONER!!!! now spin the crankshaft until the sproket aligns with the timing mark. now at this point the two camshafts should be aligned. now there is a special tool from ford that holds the cam shafts in place. all it is is a 1/4" peice of metal that goes on the left side of the cam shafts to hold them into place. if you mark the cams you wont need the tool. or if you can find something to fit in the left side of the cams that will work too. anyways after that its just the same steps in reverse. very easy to do.

1997AudiA6Quatro2.8L-aligning cam and crankshaft for timing belt


You must find the cam lock bar and crank lock pin to do this job properly, otherwise you can bend some valves and that becomes expensive..the front crank damper has a mark to line up with a mark on the timing cover for #1 TDC, but the cam lock bar is what aligns the cams into position. The crank lock pin is helpful but not 100% necessary...

Timing marks


this is an easy one to time. the timing mark for the crank is 0 degrees-do not attempt to tum crank if cam timing is out. there is no distributor on this engine-it is advanced with your intake camshaft. The intake camshaft is the only tricky part to time. Be very careful because at 2500 rpm this cam actually moves forward via cam advance solenoid. It will hit your crank if not timed properly! so with your crank at o degrees-camshafts out of head if you need to turn engine to line up crank-on the exhaust cam(your left)behind the gear(on flange) there will be a hole big enough to put a small punch in that will line up with the top of the deck surface on the outer side(to the left). Now on your intake cam(your right) it will be just the opposite. the hole on the back side of the gear flange will line up on the right with the to p the deck surface. once in line hold intake cam and turn the gear(advancer) all the way to the right)-very important. You will have to start with you intake(put chain on) then line up your exhaust and install timing chain tensioner. always turn engine 360 degrees and recheck before you proceed. At least your at top dead center and you can visually see the lobes on both cams mostly straight up. hope I have been helpful.
