Camry timing belt


I am assuming you are referring to a 2.2 liter 5SFE engine. If so camshaft timing mark is dot located on forward face of sprocket mid spoke/or a notch on inboard rim of sprocket. locate mark and paint with white paint. Locate timing mark-small raised dot on plate behind sprocket at approx. one o-clock position paint this white for easy reference. Crank shaft sprocket has small notch on inboard rim. paint white for reference. align cam timing marks, then align crankshaft mark with #0 on timing scale. Adjust tensioner and belt is aligned. I recommend changing idler pulleys and water pump when replacing belt as preventative maintenance. Also inspect shaft oil seals and replace as needed. Performing these services now will save time and money in the future.

Timing belt timing marks


Instructions
  1. Remove the Timing Belt 3.0 V6
    • Place the Voyager's engine in the TDC no. 1 position for cylinder firing in order to get proper alignment. Disconnect the negative cable on the battery.
    • 2Take off the accessory drive belts, and take out engine mount insulator, located in the engine support bracket. Detach the engine support bracket and take off the torsional damper and crankshaft pulleys. This ensures easier access to the timing belt.

    • 3. Locate the 2- to 3-inch wide timing belt in the front of the engine. Remove the cover of the timing belt.
    • 4Mark the course of rotation on the belt as a reference if you plan to reinstall it. Slacken the timing belt torsioner bolt and take off the timing belt. Detach the timing belt torsioner if needed.
    • 5Remove the crankshaft sprocket and the flange shield of the crankshaft sprocket. Secure the camshaft sprocket using a spanner tool MB990775, or something similar, and take off the bolt and washer to the camshaft sprocket.
    Install the Timing Belt
    • 6Use the retaining washer and bolt to fit the camshaft sprocket onto the camshaft. Utilize the spanner tool MB990775 and tighten the bolt. Mount the crankshaft sprocket and put on the timing belt torsioner and tensioner spring if it was removed. Hook the higher end of the spring to the water pump pin and bottom end to the tensioner bracket with the hook facing out.
    • 7Rotate the timing belt tensioner in a counterclockwise turn and tighten the bolt to momentarily hold it in place. Turn the crankshaft sprocket until the timing mark lines up with the timing mark on the oil pump timing mark. Revolve the back camshaft sprocket so that its timing mark lines up with the generator bracket timing mark. Turn the radiator side camshaft sprocket so that the mark aligns with the inner timing belt cover mark.
    • 8Connect the timing belt onto the Voyager's crankshaft sprocket, keeping the belt tight on the side of tension. Install the belt in the same rotational direction if using the original timing belt. Put the timing belt on the radiator side of the camshaft sprocket, and place the belt underneath the water pump pulley first, and follow that by putting it over the back camshaft sprocket and the tensioner.
    • 9Create tension on the side of the timing belt and correctly line up all timing marks. Put the crankshaft sprocket flange into place and loosen the tensioner bolt to allow the tensioner spring to put tension on the belt. Turn the crankshaft two clockwise turns. Line up the timing marks and tighten the tensioner bolt. Put on the timing belt cover and engine support bracket.
    • 10Put the engine mount insulator, crankshaft pulleys and torsional damper into place. Mount the accessory drive belts, connect the negative battery cable and check that the engine runs properly.

How to take the timing chain off to replace the water pump


The best way to do this yourself is to get a HAYNES or other auto manual. This is a complicated procedure and if not performed EXACTLY, timing can thrown off, not to mention the fact that engine damage can occur.
Usually it is just a matter of aligning the timing marks on each cam (double overhead cams) AS WELL AS the crankshaft (bottom pulley) all at the exact marks to make sure the timing is not disturbed. These manuals would be worth their weight in gold to get the exact procedure done correctly. The manuals are only about 20-30 bucks, and contain a boatload of other useful info also.

General outline:
1-Tear down engine sufficiently to access removing the timing belt cover.
2-Remove timing belt cover.
3-Turn engine over slowly and manually (by hand) until you have reached the ALIGNED points described by the MANUAL.
4-Remove the timing belt TENSION ADJUSTER, then the timing belt.(It is CRITICAL that the timing is not disturbed at this point, until the timing belt is installed.

*Do not reinstall the old timing belt, use a NEW one.*

5-You now have access to the water pump/mounting bolts.
6-Replace the water pump.
7-Reinsure the timing marks proper positions as you install the NEW timing belt, taking into account the slack that the tension adjuster you also will install will remove.
8-Recheck your timing mark alignments by turning the engine by hand back and foth some.
9-Reinstall the timing belt cover.
10-Reinstall all the components that you had to tear down to gain access for this job.

If you double checked your timing calculations, and your water pump replacement, everything should be good to go.

It's a little time consuming, you will need a harmonic balacer puller/reinstaller tool, and air tools will knock it out much quicker. Your back might be aching a lil by the time this job is complete.

Reply back if you need more info.

Hope this helps.

Timing Belt Manual


WARNING Timing belt maintenance is extremely important! The A4 and Passat model utilize an interference-type, non-free-wheeling engine. If the timing belt breaks, the valves in the cylinder head may strike the pistons, causing potentially serious (also time-consuming and expensive) engine damage. The recommended replacement interval for the timing belt is at least every 6 years or 60,000-90,000 miles (96,000-144,000 km), depending on vehicle usage and engine type.
NOTE If removed and reinstalled, the timing belt must be installed in the same rotational direction as removed.

VW Passat & Audi A4 1990-2000 Repair Guide
Timing Belt - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

WARNING Do NOT turn the engine or camshaft with the timing belt removed. The pistons will contact the valves and cause internal engine damage.


2.0L (9A, ABA) Engines
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the accessory drive belts, crankshaft pulley and the timing belt cover(s).
  2. Temporarily reinstall the crankshaft pulley bolt and turn the crankshaft to TDC of No. 1 piston. The mark on the camshaft sprocket should be aligned with the mark on the inner timing belt cover or the edge of the cylinder head.
  3. With the distributor cap removed, the rotor should be pointing toward the No. 1 mark on the rim of the distributor housing. On 8 valve engines, the notch on the crankshaft pulley should align with the dot on the intermediate shaft sprocket.
  4. Loosen the locknut on the tensioner pulley and turn the tensioner counterclockwise to relieve the tension on the timing belt.
  5. Slide the timing belt from the sprockets

To install:
  1. Check the alignment of the timing marks. On 16-valve engines, the mark on the tooth should align with the mark on the rear belt cover.
  2. Install the new timing belt and tension the belt so it can be twisted 90° at the middle of it's longest section, between the camshaft and intermediate sprockets.
  3. Recheck the alignment of the timing marks and, if correct, turn the engine 2 full revolutions to return to TDC of No. 1 piston. Recheck belt tension and timing marks. Readjust as required. Torque the tensioner nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  4. Install the belt cover and accessory drive belts.
  5. If the belt is too tight, there will be a growling noise that rises and falls with engine speed.

Timing belt replacement


This is the timing belt replacement procedure to 1999 Vovlo V70
with the B5254s engine

1) Lift power steering and anti-freeze resevoirs slightly and disconnect electrical connector for antifreeze sensor. Then carefully lift both resevoirs and position it on top of the valve cover.

2) Relieve the tension from the serpentine belt tensioner pulley and remove the serpentine belt.

3) Remove the screw holding the plastic timing belt cover and carefully remove the cover.

4) Locate the timing marks on the camshaft pulleys. I highlighted the marks with paint to make them easier to see. I took a dab of white touch up paint and put it on each mark, then waited a minute and then wiped the excess paint carefully, leaving a white line for the mark. The mating marks for the cam gears is on the upper cam gear cover. The marks are rectanular cutouts on the underside of the cover. I was unable to line up the marks unless standing on my head so I extended the marks to the outside of the cover with a white painted dot. This trick made life much easier.

5) Reinstall the timing gear cover.

6) Place a 32mm socket on the crankshaft pulley and connect a breaker bar to the socket. Slowly rotate the engine crankshaft (clockwise) until the camshaft timing marks are aligned with the marks on the gear cover. (I preferred to do this job with the spark plugs installed. I found it easier to keep the engine in time by using the engine compression).

7) Remove the vibration damper by removing the 32mm nut and remove all of the 10mm screws. Carefully pry the pulley from the shaft. There is an alignment pin which allows the pulley to be installed only one way. With the vibration damper removed you can now check the timing alignment with the crankshaft and it's witness mark.

8) Remove the small timing belt shield from the underside of the crankshaft. This shield is helt in place with 2 screws.

9) Loosen the ttiming belt tension and remove the old timing belt.

10) This is a good time to check the waterpump for any signs of wear or leaks. Mine was leaking after 101,000 miles. I also replaced the tensioning pulley and used Volvo OEM parts. (The old Volvo parts lasted 100,000 miles, that is good enough for me).

11) Reverse the procedure for installing the new timing belt.

12) After the belt is installed and properly tensioned, put the breaker bar with the 32mm socket onto the vibration damper and rotate the engine (clockwise) slowly until your timing marks are again aligned. If they are not, remove and reinstall the belt. Don't get frustrated just think of all of the money you have saved by doing this job yourself.
