I have a 2001 Dodge Durango my sprockets dots are where they are supposed to be but the white dots on my chain or not do the white dots on the chain matter


I Assume you have a 4.7 liter V8, have you taken the chains or gears off yet, if so, did you line everything up before disassembly and lock the gears with a locking fixture and chock the chains in the guides? yes, all the dots and marks matter. it is an interference engine which means if the cams are out of time with the crankshaft, severe valvetrain/piston damage can result when started. get out the manual and go over all the marks and be absolutely sure everything is exactly lined up before trying to start. turn the engine over by hand at least 2 full revolutions to check for interference , then recheck all timing marks again. before cranking with the starter motor. timing is critical on the 4.7, if its off, bad thing can happen, please take your time and be careful

1999 lexus LX470 does the timing mark on the left bank line up with the single dot or the double dot if i line up with the double dot (as per manual) the pully for the timing belt points down 180 degr


looking from the front of the engine , the pulley mark on the LH cam pulley lines (12o'clock) up with the centre of the 2 notches and the RH lines up (12 o'clock) with the single notch. On the crank one mark will be lined up with a single notch at about the 1 o'clock position and another at the 3 o'clock position lined up with a series of dots. Ensure that you have the piston on TDC no1 first and align the crank marks first.

Exhaust camshaft gear and Intake gears have dots on them, chain has colored links. Align colored links to dots or count 14 links from ex cam dot to intake dot. Make sure that the mark on the cambelt side is set first on ex side. Small hole on ex cam gear (cambelt) side to line up with mark on head.

How to set the time belt?


4 Cylinder diesel(4JX1) :
1 - Timing mark
2 - Cam pulley
3 - HP Oil pump pulley
4 - Tensioner pulley


suzman_0.jpg

6 Cylinder petrol:
Align crank(C) timing notch mark (1) to oil pump mark.
Align cam pulley(L+R) marks(3) to cylinder head marks
The cam belt has 3 marks, 2 lines and one mark that is actually a row of dots. Align the dots to the crank pulley groove mark(2) and align the other 2 lines to the cam pulley marks. Using a clothes peg to hold the belt to the cam pulleys works wonders to keep it in place while fitting. Please note the arrows on the belt and have them point in the direction of rotation - right to left side of engine
W - water pump pulley
I - Idler pulley
T - Tensioner pulley.

If for some reason you need to realign the cams on each bank :
Standing in front of the car and starting from YOUR left , looking at the cams you should see RE, RI, LI, LE on each of the camshafts.(R for right bank, L for left bank, I for intake and E for exhaust) Right bank camshafts are marked with one dot, left bank with 2 dots on the shaft itself. To align the camshafts to each other each cam shaft gear has a mark on it. Draw an imaginary line between the centre of the camshaft and the centre of the pulley. The alignment mark should be between the two along this imaginary line. The result will be that RI an RE will be at the top of each gear. The same with the left bank.

I am looking for a diagram on a 02 toyota highlander v6 timing belt set up


You don't need one. Get a T belt from toyota. It has 3 white lines on it and and arrow mark. 2 lines are solid and one is broken. Put the arrow facing away from the engine. The cam gears have a dot punched into them near a certain tooth. This is where the solid white lines will line up with. The crank gear will have a dot also. It will line up at 90 degrees from the top, towards the front of the car. This is where the broken line will match up with. With the belt installed with all lines on their proper dots and arrow away from the engine, you valve timming is correct.
Of course you need to remove and compress the tensioner also. I assume you know this already since you didn't ask.

Well you have good compression so your cylinders are OK.
I cannot help you with the vacuum hoses, but, try and plug them because if they are sucking air they will make the mixture weak and that will cause the engine to run badly.
To be honest if it is rocking about as much as you say then I would suggest it is only running on three cylinders. If you are happy with the sparkplugs and HT leads then it has to be a fuel problem, the injector with the broken plastic part? are you sure its operating correctly?
