Just to add to previous solution...

Assuming your head is straight & without defects, ensure you follow the correct tightening sequence diagram (see numbers) below:

Front of engine

i e
n 10 8 x
t h
a 4 6 a
k u
e 2 1 s
5 3
s s
i 7 9 i
d d
e e

1) Apply a small amount of engine oil to the thread section of the bolt and install so the chamfer of the washer faces upward.

2) In the proper tightening sequence (as shown above), torque bolts initially to 22 ft.lbs. (30Nm)

3) In the proper tightening sequence, now torque bolts to 45 ft.lbs. (61Nm)

4) In the proper tightening sequence, finally torque bolts to 68 ft.lbs. (92Nm)

Now you can Install the Camshaft sprocket and tighten it to 65 ft.lbs. (90Nm), while holding sprocket in place using the correct wrench.

Confirm proper timing mark alignment.

Sorry for the severe delay.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered question.
I do not know if you still need the answer, but I am going to answer it in case you still do.

Click on the following direct Link. It has the Timing Belt Diagrams with Marks for the Camshaft and Crankshaft that you will need. It also has numerous other helpful diagrams for use.

To answer your direct question: (See Diagram 96F14675 on the Link) The Belt Alignment and Align Mating Marks are the keys.
The Crankshaft "pulley" (actually the Sprocket) has the outer Flange (cover) which needs to be removed to see the Timing Mark.

Again my apologies...
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at!

Timing chain guide broke on a 2007 Chevy malibu Eco tech engine 4cylinder. I've had the head reworked, new timing chain kit, head bolts, etc. I just got the head on and set the timing. Now here's my...

First, are you rotating in the correct direction? Second, remember, timing chain tension is held tight by oil pressure on the rear timing chain guide. If the engine is not running, there is nothing there to keep it tight.

How to replace a cylinder head on 2001 Ford Expedition 4.6 L V8

Actually, rather than replace the head, you can fix the spark plug hole with a "Time-Sert":

One thing they talk about on the site, "Ford spark plug blow-out? Repair kit part number 5553 Ford Triton spark plug kit will repair blown out spark plug's in Ford heads."
Here's the page for Ford's repair kits:

I've used these for years, and they work great!
Much better than a Helicoil, as the Time-Sert retains full thread strength!

But....I would STILL recommend removing the head to do this repair, so as to avoid metal chips/shavings from falling into the cylinder, but you'll save the cost of a new head!

2005 subaru forester timing belt broke

Not good. Its very likely that you have bent some valves on one or both heads. Get a new belt and pulley kit, and install it. By hand, rotate the engine to ensure that NOTHING is jammed. Take the plugs out and do a compression test. If the readings are normal, put the plugs back and start. If not, pull nor or more heads, get them reconditioned nada install new head gaskets.

I have had issues with spark plugs blowing out of the head and i cant figure it out

thats an easy one. Who ever installed the plugs either tighten them too tight or cross thread them. That will cause them to come out from the compression of the piston
You will need to purchase a HELICOIL KIT to repair the plugs threaded hole
If its a cast iron head thge head wilol need to be removed
If aluminum head you can perform the installation right on the engine since aluminum is very soft and will exspell harmlessly through the engine
Read the instructions carefully if you do it yourself

Please help head gasket has gone on my hyundai tradjet gol gsket kit but no loosen tighten order for the head bolts and icould do with timing marks many thanks from andy

The gasket kit alone is not the answer to your problem. You don't need to worry about bolt tightening sequence, yet. Get the head off, take it to a machine shop, have it surfaced, check the valves, etc, for leaks while you have it off. Then attempt to put it back on. The tightening sequence is in the book you bought to work on the car. Then put the timing belt on, it has marks on it, the cams have marks, and the crank has marks, they all line up, If you don't see any marks on the belt, mark it before you take it off, with a white marker. Then the exhaust, intake, and air , then the water, power, alternator, ac, etc. Then you should be all set.

you will prob have to remove the head. It is only a common problem when the proper procedure is ignored. I have been doing this for 17 years and never had one break. When you remove these they need to be at a certain temp. (warm) before removal. Before removing the others, make sure you warm the engine up for about ten minutes, then let cool for 5 minutes. Then remove plugs.You may try to drill the ceramic out of the broken plug, then tap out.

Broke a spark plug off in the head of my 1.8L, 2002 Sentra

If you have the nerve you could try using a screw extractor

Get an old plug saw it off at the same point as the other one sheared aan use it for a dummy run

Take a drill and make a hole down the centre big enough for the screw extractor (They come in different sizes and a set is quite cheap)

See if you can obtain a reasonable grip with the screw extractor

Make sure you do not drill right down to the porcilain other wise on the real attempt you will end up with the broken bits in the piston bores.

If you go for it then coat the area around the broken plug top with grease to catch any swarf when you use the drill

Clean up the area and then apply some heat to the block area not the plug give it a few minutes and then try the extractor

If that does not work then it is a workshop job

Crankshaft pulley bolt broke. How do i get it out????

You will have to drill the bolt out completely. You could first try an extractor set, it will have to be drilled to the size on the extractor set, use a product called PB Blaster and let it soak for a few days reapplying every 12 hours or so. If it broke off you may not be able to get it out with an extractor set but use the biggest extractor that will fit. If you have the head of the bolt and any threads showing you will have to fid a HSS Drill bit a little smaller than the outer diameter of the threads. then carefully drill the bolt out, it will take forever so take your time, I have set up drills with blocks and bungee cords so it will drill itself without you being in atendance, but the drill has to be positioned precisely as to not damage the inside diameter of the threads for when you install the new bolt. I even went so far at times at home to install a video camera to a small tv inside the house so I could monitor if the drill had changed position. I recently had to do exhaust bolts (6) and a spark plug that had rusted and broken off inside the motor, just the threaded portion of the spark plug was all that was there.

Spark plug nut broke off and ceramic came completly out leaving threads and ring stuck in block plugs sets roughly 8 in into head. its is a 98 breeze 2.4 any ideas on getting it out

Yes.....use a good spiral extractor and lots of patience. DO NOT spray penetrating oil into spark plug hole. And don't run the engine to "get it hot" hoping the heat will help loosen it. It will NOT work. A quality reverse spiral extractor and a breaker bar WILL do the trick if patience is used.
