Remove number one spark plug.Rotate engine hand and cam separately until piston is at top for number one cylinder and ignition rotor is aligned at number on hole. Now you can install timing belt. Rotate engine by TWO crankshaft resolutions. Recheck timing marks. Now perform compression testve to with all spark plugs out on all cylinders. If one is low then you have an interference problem and will have to remove cylinder head to have bent valves repaired.

My timming belt snapped and is mangled in and around its area of function , can the engine be ok?


It can be ok if it is NOT what they call an inference engine....one where the pistons hit the valves if the timing belt breaks.

HI MY CAM BELT STRIPPED AND JUST WANTED TO CHECK OUT THE CORRECT TIMMING MARK ON THE CAM SHAFTS PLEASE


If the timing belt stripped out chances are a valve in the interference engine was bent. These engine are called interference engines because they are designed in such a way that if the belt breaks or strips out the valve gets in the way of the piston and get hit by the piston, the timing marks can be found in a haynes repair manual found at Auto Zone or Advanced Auto Zone.

Replace timing belt on Volvo S60


There is no room for error...... Zero clearance. If off one tooth it can and will bend valves. if you are one that just feels the need to get alittle dirty or just can't pay for the service, then get out your Haynes out and turn to .....Tune up, and look at replacing timming belt. Get a cam gear tool that locks them into place so as that they will not move when u have them lined up. make sure they are lined up with marks as said in book. then make sure crank as well as all marks are lined up acordingly. make sure belt marks are lined up with everything. i would reccomend using a volvo belt though cause it will have all the marks on it.However other company's make good quality belts also at a fraction of the price. So it is really up to you.
Good thing when doing timming belt is to also change out your timming belt tensioner. YES do this it will save you a engine in the long run. it is a moving part that will go bad, it will freeze up and snap timming belt. rip out teeth in thebelt and bend valves. So as a gen rule...When you change timming belt, Change belt tensioner at same time since you cant just change tensioner without changing or getting timming belt off. Remember to use your HAYNES. It is your friend and will save you money in the long run. Good luck... Hope this helps you.

Timing belt problem on fiat brava


i recomend you to buy a book with the timing marks because i had the same problem and i have one of the best repair information software online and that could not even help me
this type of car has to many marks and you need to make sure where they go, but if the timing belt still complete and in the car all what you have to do is mark it with liquid paper or some kind of ink and put it back the same way
