Re: can't find timing marls on 1993 trooper
That motor should be a 3.2 litre... 6VD1 there are timing marks for the cams and crankshaft... one is to the left of the left cam... the other is to the right of the right cam.... and the marks for the crankshaft pulley are at the 9 and 3 position on a clock.

www.cargurus.com > Questions > Dodge > Journey CarGurusJan 18, 2015 - I have went in and replaced the water pump and the timing belt. ...Align the crankshaft sprocket (10) with the TDC mark (9) on the oil pump cover. 2. ...and then just shut off and won't restart? try unplugging the cam ... The two timingmarks for the camshafts are lined up and the crank is lined up with TDC.
if flywheel is fitted in correct position the timing mark on the front top cambelt gear is at 12 O clock and with starter motor removed you will see 3 lines stamped in the interuptor ring that is bolted to the rear of the flywheel if manual on early builds, also there is a notch in flywheel which you can see if gearbox is out this goes at 6 O clock
there should be marks on crank pully and cam belt pully. rotate motor until crank pully timing mark is on zero.the cam belt pully should be lined up with its own mark.number one piston should be at the top of its stroke (top dead centre TDC) and number one valves should be shut. if the cam belt mark is not alined with its own mark remove the belt realine the marks and refit the belt
4JX1 diesel engine has a belt . 4JGE is a different engine completely. To change it set #1 on tdc fireing stroke using the mark on the back lip of the crank pulley (sit it at 12'oclock) and see the mark on the camshaft bearing matches the notch on the pulley .Ignore the marks on the lower belt pulley.
Tensioner and cover removal/replacement is standard and the chnage period is 60,000 miles.
It is important that you turn the engine in the correct direction. To achieve TDC firing stroke remove spark plugs insert a plasic straw into the number one spark plug hole and proceed to turn the engine over observe the straw keep turn ing the motor until the straw travels upward when it stops moving up stop turning, you will know you are at tdc by looking at the timing marks down on the crankshaft pulley the notch on the pulley should line up exactly to the number zero on the timing plate at the front lower part of the motor very close to the crankshaft pulley turn the motor over again and again until you line up the notch on pulley with the number zero you may need to clean the numbers off on the timing plate or front cover.
The number one piston is at TDC on the compression stroke when the notch in the crankshaft pulley is aligned with the 0 on the timing plate. and the rotor is pointing at the number one spark plug terminal in the distributor cap. You will probably have to pull the valve cover to find top dead center.
if its a 4JX1 diesel, yes it goes in 1 spot yet it can be bolted up in every location
put crank pulley timing mark to TDC can also check by removing cam belt top cover and check timing mark aligned up with mark at 12 O clock then flywheel has small notch in edge that must go at 6 O clock (facing down) look closely it is hard to see due to flywheel sunk into back of block.
