SOURCE: Does a 1993 BMW 318i have a timing belt or a timing chain?

Hi some of them have a belt but yours being the M43 engine is a chain, the only thing to listen for with them is chain slap or an rattling around the chain area, a bit of research on the M43 engine also shows that the chain should be changed after 100000 miles as they become weak, Just joined here and found this unsolved i know its a bit late but hope the extra info helps

Remove the cam cover, remove the spark plugs, turn the engine to number 1 TDC, put a pencil in spark plug hole number one and twist the crank back and forth and make doubly sure you are at TDC. Now loosen the four bolts at the front of each cam sprocket, check TDC again with the pencil and rocking the crank, now take the pencil and lay it across the flats at the back of each cam. Twist the cams very carefully so that the pencil sits flat on each cam square. Snug up the sprocket bolts and use the pencil to check TDC again! Now check the cams again. Repeat the procedure until you have the cams flat and the engine at TDC.

With the #1 Piston at TDC there is a mark that you can see through the access hole on the transmission. The cam lobes should both be pointing up on #1 Cylinder. The slot on the right or back side of the cam should be level with the top of the valve cover gasket mating surface on the head. There is a tool to make sure that this is in place, but it is not necessary. There is also a mark for the injection pump that should be lined up with the gasket mating surface. There is also a tool that fits this (I use an 11mm craftsman 1/4 inch drive socket in the holes)

I bought one of my VW pickups cheap because a repair shop didn't line it up correctly and the engine would not run properly.

The directions should be pretty good in the haynes manual.

What are the timing marks for a 2004 bmw x5 3.0 liter engine?


The timing marks for the cam chain are just basic set up. You will need factory special tools to lock crank and other shafts in place to do this correctly.

Bmw m42 engine. The sprockets on the camshafts must be refitted, which way do the arrows point


You must use a special tool which bolts onto the cylinder head. It is designed to hold the camshafts in the proper position. It goes over the flats on the camshafts to hold the camshafts in the correct position. This tool can be rented. Look on EBay or check with your local Snap On Tools, Mac Tools, or Matco Tools dealers to rent one. See the link below for photos of properly aligned timing marks for your engine.

Where does the timing mark on the timing cover line up on a 1997 Buick lesabre 3.8 liter?


Look on your VECI label under the hood (Vehicle Emission Control Information) for the base timing spec. When you shine a timing light down there on it with engine running at idle, the mark should be on the correct position on the scale-whether at 8 degrees Before Top Dead Center, or 10 degrees BTDC, whatever the VECI label says.

Can u help me with a timing setting on my 97 toyota camary le 2.2ll or some kind of mark to guide me on?


Hi,
Are you looking for ignition timing or valve timing marks?
The ignition timing is set at 10 degrees BTC. the marks are at the front of the engine and the degrees are scaled onto a raised molding on the plastic timing belt cover. There is a line marked on the pulley. Paint with correcting fluid the 10 degree mark and the pulley mark. Correct timing is 10 degrees BTC.
Before setting, open the diagnostic connector in the engine compartment and using a short piece of electrical wire and bridge between "T" and 'E' If this is not done the timing will not be corrected.
If you've replaced the timing belt and you're looking for the timing marks, the mark for the crank shaft is a raised casting forming a small pointer for the crank shaft which aligns with a groove in the crank timing gear....When looking from above at the relevant section of the engine, it will appear on your right hand side just above the crankshaft timing gear.
The marks for the cams are holes drilled through each and these should be aligned with punch marks on the cylinder head. The best way of doing this job is by using a mirror and illuminating between the cam gears and the cylinder head.
Hope this helps

I need the timing marks for a 1991 bmw 740 il. Do you have a picture?


Hi,

This type of engine does not have timing marks to set ignition timing, this is electronically set by the DME ( Digital Motor Electronics) which can only be set by BMW specialist and there OEM test equipment.

Hope this helps.

Fig. 4: Timing belt arrangement engine

BMW recommends that the timing belt be changed every second Inspection ii, or every 4 years on cars that have low mileage. Most of the rest of the industry has timing belt changing intervals ranging from 40,000 miles to 60,000 miles. It is better to change the belt at a lower mileage than at a higher number.
The timing belt must be replaced every time the belt tensioner is loosened. Do not reinstall a used belt. Reusing a timing belt, even one with low mileage, is not worth the chance of having a belt break and damaging the engine.

Good luck.
