SOURCE: 2004 jetta timing belt is missing teeth and jumped

For sure. Make sure you have the proper torquing sequence for your engine BEFORE you tear it apart. The head has to be taken off in the reverse sequence for torquing or you run a high risk of cracking the head and buying a new one. Hope thishelps.

SOURCE: cam position sensor fault indicated

engine managment light on in civic type r (2002). Diagnostic test showed cam sensors. I paid a lot for these to be changed but light is still on. Garage are now saying it is the crankshaft two belts that need replacing and this is an engine out job which will cost me a fortune. Is what the garage saying accurate?

SOURCE: new timing belt fitted 2000 miles ago

NO.a garage doesnt even have to ask you what "extras"you want(aux belt)although if they asked you would you have agreed as "most garages are a ripoff trying to fit items that are not required...."the majority are not cowboys but get tarred with the same brush.

SOURCE: i think my timing chain has jumped a tooth. Is

Depends on miles or how hard an engine has been run over a period of time . Chains and belts stretch and they can jump if they get loose enough and have enough strain on them

On my Honda 200x 1984 timing jumps one tooth after setting kicked first time ride jumped out.65.50 wisco big bore kit.12 tooth drive socket. Set tenchner til chain sound stops?,


2 questions come to mind has the new sprocket got the same pitch ( distance between teeth ) as the crank shaft sprocket as this will make the chain jump out after a few degrees of movement. A quick check is to wrap the chain around the sprocket and see if there are links that do not sit fully around the teeth. There are different pitches for teeth and chains ( BA-- AM and metric)

How much to repair timing chain?


The internal damage is always the main worry with a broken timing chain, bent or broken valves, damaged valve stems and seats, I have even seen broken rings and split pistons and snapped camshafts, if the chain has stretched and the timing has jumped a couple of teeth you may be lucky, but you shouldnt turn the engine over even by hand until you find out the root of the problem, any damage may be increased tenfold. Unfortunately the timing cover will have to be released to find out before you do anything.

What would make a 2002 2.2l cavalier turn over but wont start


If there is was no check engine light prior to the problem (which would normally indicate sensor problems), then I would suspect that the engine has jumped time. The 2.2L engines, although they have a timing chain and not a belt, had issues with the timing chain tensioner. This wars out, breaks, and allows the timing chain to jump across the gear teeth, putting the engine out of time. This will cause a no-start condition, and if bad enough, cause valve damage that will require the heads to be repaired. The easiest way to check for this problem is to perform a compression check of the cylinders. If the engine has jumped time, the compression in the cylinders will vary greatly from one cylinder to the next and will most likely be lower than normal.

if the car keeps jumping 2 or 3 teeth on the timing, it's possible that you need a new timing chain/belt and tensioner.

On 2002 ford explorer,4.6-v-8, when i was changing timing chain guides and adjusters the chains jumped teeth on the crankshaft. The manual says the left camshaft timing mark should be approx. @ 11:oo & the...


Look for some Youtube videos on this repair. If I remember correctly the links on this chain have different color metal for the spots that the cam tooth goes against. When each side is in the proper tooth the right and left colored links will be on the cam mark and the crank mark should be on the timing TDC mark. Sounds like the slack you describe is wrong and a tooth is off because the tensioner is allowing slack.. You need to slip a tooth one way or the other until the tensioner has room to be in a neutral position.

Timing chain jumped two teeth on renault traffic


Reset the cambelt in position and tension, then do a compression test before wasting money on sorting a new cambelt
it maybe cheaper to get a replacement engine than rework the head.
please ask a more direct question if you need more info

Timing is way off do timing belts jump a tooth and if so what are the marks


Both the 2.2 and the 2.4 engines use a chain, not a belt.
A chain could still be faulty, but I doubt it would jump teeth unless the tensioner failed to keep it tight.

Is there a way to check the timing chain without removing the cover ( this is quite a job) for a look at the timing marks


no way of doing so. need to remove cover. i have been doing this since 1996 and have never seen chain driven nissan jump timing. have seen some timing belt cars jump, but never chain driven engines. i think you have something else going on. i have done many and many timing chain jobs on frontiers and maximas, but not for a timing chain jumping issue. upper timing chain shoes wear out and engine gets noisy. i have to say i have seen some with the primary chain stretched a bit, but car still ran fine.

What happens when ur car jumps timing and what causes it?


A car with a timing belt will jump time for several reasons, the belt dries out and the teeth strip off the belt, the tensioner or guide wear and fail, the belt can stretch over the years causing it to jump the sprockets. A car with a timing chain can jump because many were made with cam gears that had plastic teeth and they wore out, or the gear was made out of a casting that wore out, or the chain stretched replacement cam gears were usually made out of steel.

1988 Ford F 250 5.8L EFI wont start


Since you are getting spark and fuel we know you are good there. Check the timing on the engine. Turn the engine from the front of the crankshaft with a socket and a large breaker bar until you reach top dead center of the intake stroke. Then remove the distributor cap and check to make sure the rotor is pointing to the # 1 cylinder. It almost sounds from your description of the sound the engine is making that the timing chain has jumped a few teeth on the gear. These factory gears have a nylon coating on the teeth and over time the nylon chips off the gear. When to much of this plastic gets chipped off the teeth it results in chain slack on the push side of the gear. When you shut the engine off it can jump a few teeth at the very last second before the engine stops rotating the crank and cause it to jump teeth. The engine probably has high mileage and might need the timing gears and chain replaced now. If you perform the visual check with the distributor I think you will find the chain has jumped a few teeth. If you need more help come back to this site and one of us will be glad to help. Good luck. Let me know what you discover.
