Setting timing marks


no start is a whole other matter. (double posted)
my guess (???) you put i a new cam belt to this DOHC engine?
1: new belt
2: timed it right.
3: turn engine by hand , to feel the valves not hit piston tops.? spark plugs out.
4: did a 4 cyl, leak down test with the guage. to see if valve are ALREADY bent, this step saves making them worse. if already damaged, or if the cam is wrong now.
(bravery starts here)
5: you crank it over, and checked for spark, ok got spark x4 and is timed right, (will be wrong, if cam is wrong, for sure, big hint here.)
6: got spark ?, good compression?, and now we try test fuel.
I spray test fuel into the plenum (if not flooding already)
yes, runs for 3 seconds, (good engine is good, but no fueling)
no, engine is bad. spark is timed wrong, or cam timed wrong.

just 6 steps.... if you do them you can save this motor. or at the least
prevent cascade damage.

the goal here is to get it to run on test fuel, , we can fix fueling issues
now.. as the engine is good. a major goal of many.

My Mazda 626 is a 2001 LX 4cyl my problem is that the engine turns but won't start it sounds like it wants to start at times but doesent,I've already chekd for spark has good spark I've checks...


and engine needs fuel, spark and air to run. If you are sure you have fuel and spark, the timing is the last thing to check. Your engine is provided with external alignment marks. take out all of your plugs, and by hand, turn your engine over until you see your harmonic balancer (pulley your belt is on at the bottom of the engine/crank) alignment marks meet with the marks on the engine block. Next you need to look at your cam gears. You might have to pull a plastic cover, or the valve cover off to see the cam gears. The cam gears have alignment marks as well. If all marks line up together at the same time, timing is not the issue. the timing belt is an iffy design. The timing belt tensioner could be warn out and only show signs or being warn out every now and then. your tensioner could have loosened up, caused your belt to jump, and clamp back again.

1999 camry wont start after timing belt change.


4cyl or V6??? make sure all timing marks are aligned!!If ok, try cranking the engine a few time. Disconnect neg battery cable, remove any sparkplug and inspect it for Fuel (spark plug should smell like bet wet and smell like fuel). If ok, please respond with engine type for more info.

Van quit unexpectedly while driving it- it appears it is spark or electrical-changed ignigition coil- not it- is there a safety shutoff ???? any ideas?????????


No shut offs, these are none for fuel pumps,depending on the engine it may be a bad timing belt, the belt may have poped or jumped, start by checking the fuel preasure,if there preasure about 50-60 psi them the next step would be the belt, a compression test on the cylinder should tell you or removing the cover and checking the timing marks. i would say its one of the two a fuelpump or the timing belt, i checked and the 96 caravan does have a timing belt in the 4 and 6 cylinder engines. hope this helps.

I have a no start situation after replacing the water pump and timing belt. The marks on the camshaft pulley and the crank pulley are right on. When I put a timing light on the timing marks they are right...


I have a funny feeling that you have the belt on wrong. I know, you said the marks line up, but a compression check is easy and just confirms everything. Failing that, could you have the plug wires on wrong...I'm wondering if spark is occurring on the compression stroke or the exhaust stroke, and all this could come back to if the cambelt is on right as well.

Bottom line; if you have spark, fuel and COMPRESSION, it'll run.

only two things, either something got left unplugged or the wrong timing marks were used. what daigram did you use for the alignment of the marks? sometimes they do have different marks for other reasons. let me know.

Can any body help put cambelt back together


You need to rotate the cam until timing marks on the sprocket are in line with the head, then make sure crank shaft timing mark is lined up. Install the belt. Might have to loosen the timing belt tensioner. Put timing belt tensioner back on, rotate the crank shaft with a wrench first to make sure there's no interference. Next, check compression.
