Only worry about what is happenng on no1 piston. with the piston on top dead center and the valves in the overlap position ie a small movement either way shows inlet opening or closing with the the exhaust operating the opposite direction means that you have timed the motor correctly. all the rest will fall into line

SOURCE: car will not start

Well, since you had the heads off, the valve timing comes to mind...

Do you have compression now?

If not - rings,

If compression good, then did late spark burn exhaust valves and you are now chasing your real problem?

Subarus tend to block their radiators. Often there is only 10% or less flow. The radiator needs to be taken out and have a radiator shop strip and rod out the core tubes or fit a new or recored radiator.

I'm losing power and showing low oil pressure. If I stomp on her she runs ok until I come out of third gear. Takes a long time to get from 50 to 70 and it feels like the truck is giving me everything she...


Check compression in each cylinder., sounds as if it might be piston rings.oil thins as it warms so the drop in pressure seems to point to loss of compression .i take it it doesn't blow smoke out of exhaust?

Hi. I can give you a simple, but time consuming test to do to check your intermittent compression problem. New hydraulic lifters cause a lot of problems until its settled. Remove the camshafts and the hydraulic lifters. Take each hydraulic lifter and put it in a vice(becarefull not to damage them) and squeeze out all the oil in the lifters. Then put them back and replace camshaft and allign timing marks. Check compression ratio. What happens sometimes is that the oil pressure is too high(stuck oil pressure release valve or cold thick oil) and this causes the oil pressure to put so much pressure on the hydraulic lifters, that it slightly forces the valve open. That will cause your low compression as well as backfire through the intake.

How to remove timing belt/head for gasket replacement on 1992 ford laser 1.6


Is this an over head cam? Must be if it has a timing belt. OK, Pull everything off that is in the way, take fotos if you have to remember where everything went, air filter, intake, dist? anything, everything. Fan in the way? Timing cover, Expose the belt, highlight the timing marks on the cam and the crank, put the mark on the belt as well, Pull off rocker cover, Look underneath cam for head bolts, If the cam has to come off, Mark it with a white pen or a junk yard marker, Do not let it move from its position, Pull the cam, pull the head bolts, pull the head off. Check it for flat, see if it got hot and warped. If it did, you will need to get it planed. You might as well get it checked out while you got it off. Get a new gasket on there, no adhesive, no silicone, no glue, dry. You are supposed to use new bolts, but we'll let it slide. They cost about $50. Torque it down according to spec and pattern, Put the cam back on, align the marks, put the belt on, It should line up with the mark, or better yet, it has to. Set the tension on the belt, put the covers back on, you could crank the engine over by hand to make sure it is OK, then put it all back together, to make it easy to spin by hand, pull the spark plugs out. Get all the fan, air filter, intake, wires, cables, etc back on there, check the foto, fire it up. Hope this helps.

I have a 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5L that is leaking oil into the spark plug tubes; can these seals be replaced or does the valve cover have to be replaced?


Yes, you need a Rocker cover (valve cover) Gasket kit. Remove the valve cover, remove all old O-rings and cover gasket, clean grooves and mating surfaces without gouging or scratching them, put the new gaskets on as per factory recommendations, tighten to the proper torque and you're done. The spark plug holes in the cover are part of the valve cover gasket kit. Any Napa, Car Quest, Pep Boys, Auto Zone will have it.

Blown head gasket


please read all before starting not to bad to change did you check compression if your sure that's what it is its about 4hr job.start by putting #1 tdc intake side.note where vacuum hoses are can mark with gray or yellow perm marker remove breather all plug wires exhaust manifold then intake manifold remember what bolts in and whats nutted on.remove break booster cross vacuum hose and egr control valve on left rear of intake side remove vale cover ((you'll have to get something to hold tension on timing chain so not to let tentioner come out inside timing chain cover when removing came gear)) remove head bolts only in off order so not to put tension in one area. do not remove cam shaft bolts and do not turn cam shaft at all after timing gear is removed take off head and check piston walls for wear replace gasket and put back in GOOD LUCK

Replacing head gasket on my 94 cavalier I have removed the alternator, intake and exhaust are loose; question is how do I keep from throwing the timing off when I pull the head?


there is not a way to not affect the valve timing, the cam belt must be replaced in a repair like this, when u put it back together you must reset and confirm all the valve timing marks are in correct alignment, just no way way around this, if the cam is timed right the engines ignition timing is correct as well and will require no adjustment. this answer applies to all engine that use a cam drive belt.

I replaced the head gaskets and put back together set the timing manually with compression stroke at #1 cylinder car wont start and blows air out of intake connection to air filter? what did I screw up?...


Serious trouble. Distribution belt problem.
Valves opening at wrong interval.
You forgot to line up the timer marks.

Read a basic book next time.
Did you knock the cylinderhead of by leaving one bolt behind and turning it off or did you forget that one to.
Tightening fromm the middle towards the end.
Head always to be regrinded until mininimum because of warp?
Nice to grind in valve seats in as well then. And a few other things.
