Need timing marks for 1993 1.6 Toyota Corola camshafts


If its the 1.6litre 4afe. Turn the crankshaft to TDC, ie. Tiny slit on the crank pulley should be straight underneath the 0deg mark. The cams, intake cam is driven off the exhaust cam by means of two gears. Installation marks. They have 4 holes in front of the gears. Front being closest to timing belt. Upon installation one hole in each gear should face upwards and the other holes should face each other between the gears. On the exhaust cam pulley there is a hole drilled through it, ie. timing mark. It should face up. Directly inline with the grove in the first cam cap. If you have 1.6litre 4age engine. Between cam gears and cylinder head there should be a plate. groves in cam gears should face the groves in the the plate.

Why would my jaguar XJ6 pully start squeeking, sounds like bearings?


what is happening is the belt is not getting full contact with the pulley, you might just have some antifreeze residue from repair and by slowly poring 1/2 a gallon of water on the belt will wash off this residue BUT first look under the car for leaks ! AC off let car run for 10 minutes on driveway mark the tires position with a coin back car up and look for a wet spot, the coin will give you a better idea where the leak may be.. no leak YAAAA .. next step .
pulley groves may have trash in the groves this can be cleaned with a bar of lava soap WARNING this procedure is done with the engine running and is dangerous ! take the bar of vava and touch it to the inside of the belt, this pumice in the soap works well for cleaning the pulley groves. also a ice pick or a small screwdriver can be used in the groves of the pulleys to clean black residue in the bottom of the groves.. remember i I was able to help you thank me

When i start my vehicle on it will immediately start idoling and when i drive it it idols as well the idol or whatever like i dont know if it idols ubt it does shake


it sounds like the engine is "starving" meaning the mass air controle is not set right same thing happends to same exact truck only way to find out without a mechanic is take off the plastic on the engine and look in the top back of the engine and there should be a black plastic piece with a metal bar going into a metal piece if the plastic piece is not in the grove then it has to be fixed so it dosnt come out of it(idk how to fix it but in can be rigged to stay in the groove)

How to get the timing right on an ford escort zx2 1998 my timing belt broke and it out of time and i need help to get it back into time with the 2 cames


On the zx2 the cam shafts over the valves have to be viseversa the nuges sould look different on both like one nuge sould be up one and directly across from it should be down make sure when you looking at the front of the engine that there is groves on the right of cam shafts, you should be able to fit a flat bar an a flat piece of metal in there to keep it aligened as you put the belt on as you look at the bottom gear behind the passanger tire there is a incrament on it that mark should be at 12 o clock using the gasket from the oil pan as the starting point sence the oil pan is at a angle make sure the incrament on the gear is at a 90 degree angle from the gasket on the oil pan put the belt on with out any thing moveing its easier to put the timeing belt on with it being on the bottom gear first and then puting it on the top two with out moving the cams or the bottom gear once on remove the metal piece holding the shafts in place and put every thing back together .
Note: if you have issues with the timing belt walking off the gears, then you may have a worn or tapered lower timinggear. The early engines had a two-piece design that was prone to this type of failure.

Timing zx2 escort TDC ?


The cams have a notch in the back of them (facing driver's side) in which fits a flat piece of steel to lock the cams in place. The notches are not exactly centered on the camshaft, meaning that it's impossible to set them 180 degrees out, because then the flat piece of steel that is supposed to be inserted to lock the cams in place simply won't fit because the top of the cylinder head will get in the way. I highly recommend getting a Hayne's or Chiltons manual if you don't already have one. It should explain this process under the Timing Belt Replacement instructions. The cam lock tool (that flat piece of steel) can be purchased at ZXturner.com:
