Red block engines before 1993 are non interface engines so no damage to the valves 4 cylinder engines 6 cylinder are interface engines .you must change the tension-er and get the correct belt .set the timing marks ,for your camshaft sprocket, and the timing marks for the intermediate shaft sprocket, and the timing marks for the crankshaft sprocket. now with the nail in the spring for your tension er fit your correct belt.your belt should have three marks on it .the double line is for your crankshaft line it up with the timing mark. a singe line should then line up with the timing mark for your camshaft. the next line will line up with the timing mark for your intermediate shaft.when they are all lined up .pull out the nail holding the spring for your tension-er then turn the crankshaft by putting the bolt in turn by hand .three complete turns to check everything is ok then refit everything.

If the belt keeps jumping, I would say you have a badly worn sprocket or the belt tensioner needs checking, it may need a new tensioner or your procedure for tightening it needs to be checked.
If no mark for the idler, then just put it at the 4 o'clock position, as you are facing it.

two things to check,,, there is a crank sensor at the back of the engineby the bulkhead,,at the top of the engine where the gearbox joins ,,,the sensors are known to be faulty if sometimes ,,, check the cable to the sensor,,if it is damaged replace the sensor,,,the other common problem is the fuel pump relay,,, behind the fusebox in the dash

SOURCE: 2001 volvo v70 2.4 non turbo timing belt allignment marks

Not sure if it is possible to have it run smoothly by being off a tooth.

The hash marks on the cam pulleys line up with the timing belt cover that goes over those pulleys. Should be two notches in the cover.

As for the lower marks...those aren't really visible till the lower aux. belt pulley is removed. Then you'll have a clear view of the line up marks. One on the inside and one on the outter area of the pulley itself.

When you put the t-belt on...it is a good idea to replace the tensioner as well.

Also when you have the new belt on...adjust the tensioner so that the handle looking thing is centered between the two notches that hold the tensioner in place to the block.

After putting all that together, its a good idea to rotate the timing belt two to four rotations till the marks all line up again. That will let you know if you are hitting the valves or not.

SOURCE: Timing marks set to get car back in timing so it can start

take out number one sparkplug, take the cam cover off. turn the engine of with a spanner on the bottom pulley. make sure number one piston is at TDC, now check to see if the inlet&outlet valves are close. and the piston is all the way at the top, do this with a long screwdriver to make sure it is.
if everything ok, then it will be a ignition problem.

Zx2 ran fine for a bit after timing belt change, now no start.


suspect the timing belt tension was to low and has jumped a few teeth initially(run rough) and then jumped further or stripped teeth(will not start at all).
check timing belt position setup....
if its 1-2 teeth out of timing you could put a new belt on with engine correctly setup.
.if its completely wrong the your engine will have internal damage(valves bent and pistons dented)

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.

I have a 1991 Lexus LS400, I will be driving it and it will up and die on me as though it is not getting any fuel, I've taken it to the shop and they are unable to find anything wrong, they said fuel pump...


Have the timing checked out. If it is off a couple of teeth, the engine should run, but will die when warmed up. Your 8 Cylinder uses a timing belt with a hydraulic belt tensioner. If the tensioner is leaking, or worn from old age, the belt may jump a couple of teeth. I believe your engine is an interference engine. If the belt has slipped, it is possible you may have bent valves, or worse.

Just wondering, when the engine dies on you while driving, does it start right back up, or does it start up only after cooling down?

I have a 2002 hyundai sonata 4 cylender, it stopped running on me. It was towed to a shop(not Hyundai) I've purchase a fuel pump(they discovered that it wasn't the fuel pump) I've purchased spark plugs...


if jump time that should be it timing marks and the tensioner are to lined up an also install new tensioner and recommend water pump if driven by the timing belt. if it has bent valves cause you jump time usually the car won't trun over at all.
