SOURCE: Timing Chain and Valves

I think it's an interference engine but you can check quite easily at this point if the valves are bent. Pull all the spark plugs out, turn the crank so that all the pistons are 1/2 way down their bore, get a piece of fuel line that is just the right size to thread into the plug holes or a special fitting for this purpose, and blow into each cylinder after you have turned the cams in succession so that the valves should be closed at the hole you are blowing into. If a valve is bent, you won't have any trouble blowing into the cylinder. If it's good, you won't be able to blow very well at all.

SOURCE: does a 2002 Aerio have a timing chain or a belt?

Also known as a Liana in some markets, this may have either a "G" series or a "J" series motor in it. This can be checked by finding the engine number - either G16B123456 or J18A123456. The G series is belt driven, while the J series is chain driven (2 chains).

SOURCE: timing chain was replaced on 99 model v6 suzuki

It may have stretched, but you would have known if it had stretched more than the tensioner could make adjustment for at the time the front cover was off. When you say "left bank", are you meaning the LH bank when you look into the engine bay (which is actually the RH bank), or do you mean the LH bank as in the LH side of the car? As it sounds like only the main chain was replaced initially, my thinking is that the 2 other chains and tensioners also have some wear. The RH tensioner is the only one you could possibly get an extra click out of the ratchet without pulling the entire front cover off again. You do have to remove the RH rocker cover, and with a fabricated "hook" pull the tensioner block upwards. Listen for a click (or clicks) and make sure there is no slack on the top of the chain between the sprockets. This tensioner can be starved of presurised oil if the engine is sludgy, and doing the above doesn't solve the blockage but will quieten that particular problem. Anything else will require the timing cover to come off again.

SOURCE: im looking or timing marks for 2,5 v 6 double

There is a huge service procedure for this job. It won't fit on this website given the allowable display area. If you'd like, you can either post an email address or drop me a note at: daves944 at yahoo dot ca, and I will send you a pdf of the whole thing when I get a chance later today.

SOURCE: need to know timing chain

Go to Auto Zone and get a repare manual to see how it is installed. Chances are, if that timing chain broke, the crank could've kept spinning, making the pistons hit the valves then bending them. This would happen if your engine is an interfearance-motor, an interfearance-motor is were the valves are really close to the pistons, this is done so the motor gets more horse-power. The timing chain keeps the cam and the crank shaft in time with eachother so the pistons don't hit the valves. Alot of compact cars and import cars and trucks of the 90s and up have these kind of motors in them. Therefore, you may have to get a valve job done by taking the heads off and bringing them in to some kind of repair shop.

Replace timing chains on 04 suzuki vitara j20 engine and now it sound like a diesel. What's wrong?

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Have you replaced the tensioner as well? If not, I strongly suggest that you replace the tensioner. It must be done during the timing chain replacement. Once replaced you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Have a 2001 GR Vitara with rattly engine noise. Seems to go OK. Mileage 89000km..Thought it may be Timing chain..any ideas

well without hearing it its difficult to say but a new timing chain adjuster will help ,if it is the timing chain then just a new adjuster will cure it but it could be the cam followers its difficult to point you in the right direction without hearing it myself then i could tell you exactly ,ask a local mechanic for his opinion first before you start playing with it though
