Have taken off water pumped might have knocked a 91 mazda protege out of time ,how do i find engine marks to reset the timming


Hello- Yes, you have to remove the timing belt in order to remove the water pump. If the belt was just placed back on the pulley without setting the timing marks, then the engine is out of time. There were two engine types that your Mazda could have been equiped with; a single overhead cam or a double overhead cam (you did not mention which). In any case, do not try to start the engine anymore, you could damage the valves due to piston to valve clearence caused by the engine to be out of time. Comment back with the engine type and/or if more assistance is needed.

Hello, does my 2001 Hyundai Accent have a dual overhead gasket or a single over head?


There is no such thing as a dual overhead gasket or a single overhead gasket.... there is, however, the existance of a dual overhead 'cam' and a single overhead 'cam'...

Please restate your question

I have found the crankshaft marks but I cannot find marks to align the to over head cams on my car, the dohc are run from 1 wheel. I am trying to re-align the timing belt as i think they have gone off.


if it's a dual overhead cam then each head has two cams and two pully's, a single overhead cam engine has one cam and one pulley on each head. if the belt has more than 60,000 miles on it you should replace it. you need to find out if the engine is an interference engine or not to determine the level of damage caused if the belt has jumped or slipped. your overhead cam timing marks are usually on the cam faces and the backing plate behind the cam or sometimes there's two marks on the cam that you align with the surface of the head behind them. the first thing you need is a diagram of the belt routing and mark positions because timing marks are very important especially on an interference engine. starting or cranking an interference engine with the timing marks misaligned can bend all your valves or even punch holes in your pistons! so proper alignment is crucial, good luck.

Trying to locate engine number to determine 16 0r 32 cam


Unfortunately, your question is very vague and hard to understand.

16 or 32 cam?
Usually your engine will have twin cams, or single cam.
Overhead cam(s) or not. You could determine if your engine
is a 4 or a 6 cylinder, and then you will generally find out how
many valves the engine has.

If you are in a 4 cylinder car, you probably have 16 valves if you have a twin cam engine.
If you have a single cam, 4 cylinder engine, then you will usually have only 8 valves.

The only way that you could end up with 32 valves, is if you have a dual overhead cam, v-6 engine.
Each head will have two cams, and each cylinder will have 4 valves then.

I hope that this is what you were trying to ask. :)

Out of time dont start


If you are sure that the engine is out of timing, better not try to start it until timing is fixed. Most overhead cam engines will bend or crack the valves/lifters if the timing chain has jumped a few teeth.

How can i tell if my 1994 nissan maxima is single or dual cam?


Pretty easy to tell even without taking the valve cover off.
If it is a dual cam, then the spark plugs are lined up right down the middle, between the 2 cams.
Which is optimal.
If it is a single cam, the plugs have to be off to one side, on an angle.
Which is not as good.
