I have a 99 mazda truck with the 2.3 change timing belt and will not start. All timing marks are inline. Is it possible to be 180 degrees off on the cam?? please help


I am showing a 2.5 engine in a Mazda truck, but its generally the same as a 2.3.
Its not supposed to be an interference engine, so no damage should have occured when the belt broke. Its possible the cam gear is 180 degrees off, but if the marks are lined up by the book it should be correct. Its very possible the marks are a few teeth off since the cam gear can move when the tensioner is released.
Checking compression on all 4 cylinders will tell you if the valves are in the right place.

When setting the timing marks together distributor always points to #6 not #1 put new timing chain & gears in but cant get it timed right 5.2


Is it possible to turn the distributor shaft 180 degrees and reinstall the dist ?
I am assuming you have spark at the plugs, just not at the right time ?
If the distributor has not been moved, and the rotor points to the wrong wire, you could have put the cam gear in upside down ?

When timing a 2000 2.4 dohc chain .I know to line the 1/8 holes on cams. Do i need to turn crank two rounds to get on a compression stroke. What i did was replace waterpump and chain move so when i tried...


you replaced the lifters? why? the engine is out of time, the cam position determines if its on compression stroke or not. you may have bent valves, if not you are lucky. the cams have pins to hold them in time and then the chain is installed with crank on #1 tdc (keyway up). if all is lined up correctly and it doesnt have compression, you have bent the valves. Water pump replacement is not a job for a DIY.

I am trying to replace my timing belt on my 1992 Toyota Corolla [1.6 liter engine], but I cant figure out how to remove the gears the belt was on ,we already removed the belt because it broke .please give...


Why remove the gears? No need to. Just be sure they are clean of any belt residue. The gears are locked in the correct position for the shafts.
You need to rotate the gears to position the shafts (Crank and Cam) to the correct position before installing the belt. Follow the instructions that should have come with the belt. Usually need to line up some marks on the gears to marks on the engine case for the valve timing to work right.
Pull the spark plugs so you can turn the crankshaft easier (BY HAND ONLY) Mark the wires to reinstall correctly. I did this a long time ago. Seem to remember pointing the mark on one gear to the mark on the other gear. Use a straight edge to line up the two. Dont take this as gospel.
Good luck.

I have a 2000 Mazda 626 4cyl 2.0 liter DOHC engine replacing the timing belt, what are the correct timing marks position on both cam shafts with #1 piston at TDC


I cant find a picture to show you, but if you rotate the engine until #1 is at TDC there should be a timing mark on the crankshaft gear that lines up with a pointer and the cams should have marks that line up also. Most of the time there is a molded line in the cam gear and it lines up with a molded slot in the plate behind the gear at the 12 O'clock position.

I CANT GET IT TO START GOT SPARK GOT PETROL I,AM NOT SURE ABOUTTHE TIMING BELT AND THE MARKS ON THE CAMS IF I LINE UP THE MARKS ON THE CAM THEN MY ROTOR DONT LINE UP WITH MY DIST ON NO 1


You don't say what car or how many cylinders, so lets try a generic fix. With the tappet cover off, turn the engine until the valves on #1 cylinder rock. At this point the timing mark on your pulley should line up with the timing mark on the casing, if they do not your cam timing is out. Note that when these marks line up, your distributor should be pointing 180 deg. from the #1 plug lead position. You need to turn the crankshaft 360 deg. to get #1 TDC.

I recently removed both my cams on my engine, but the front exhaust cam has a gear like sprocket on the right side of the cam, that the positioning sensor reads. my problem is that i accidently moved that...


hi, normally the camshafts have a timing GROOVE at the back. if you select a suitable length of flat bar and place into the GROOVE. you will also need to TIME UP the CRANKSHAFT and INJECTION PUMP. these can MOVE and DAMAGE WILL OCCUR.

the camshafts are marked IN and EX

p.s. you did not give a YEAR or PETROL / DIESEL or TYPE. gerry

Timing settings


you should have timing marks that are lined up on your engine. You have your crank to line up at a certain point as well as the two cams. I don't know off the top of my head where these might be for this car but you can find it in a Haynes or Chilton manual if you so desire to also learn more about your overall car and take care of this or i can find these specs and send them your way. Up to you?
