SOURCE: Where to put the timing marks on a 96' nissan 2.4 liter

the timing chain tensioner is hydraulic and either out of adjustment or defective.  You need to remove the timing chain cover and reset the mechanical correlation between the crankshaft and the camshafts.  also the other ignition time marks are on the crankshaft harmonic balancer and the cam cover.  Do not crank the engine with the timing out of sequence or you'll destroy the engine.

It was so easy once you posted us the diagram, being a Japanese import, one never knows what if anything has been done to these vehicles, and without the relevant paperwork they can be a nightmare.

Timing the Cam to the Crank

There are several ways to time the cam to the crank. Be sure to check the manual before you install the timing chain or belt.

  • Some timing sprockets are properly timed when the marks face each other.
  • On others, there must be a certain number of chain links between the marks.
  • Sometimes chains have colored links that must be aligned with the marks on the sprockets.
  • Some overhead cams have a mark on the cam gear that lines up with a mark on the cylinder head when the timing mark on the damper is at the TDC mark.
Align the timing marks for the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets before removing the timing belt or chain.

If the old parts are available, carefully compare the new gears or sprockets with the old ones. Check the keyway and timing marks just in case there might have been an error made in manufacturing. Sprockets are sometimes stamped backward. Its much better to find the problem during assembly, rather than waiting until problems show up after reassembly and reinstallation.

Maintaining Valve Timing

During a valve job, it is essential to keep the timing chain or belt in place to maintain correct valve timing. Position the number one cylinder at TDC. Some overhead cam engines use a single long chain for a cam drive. The chain can be wedged against its guides with a tapered block of wood.
the chain tensioner on some ohc engines must be wedged to keep the chain in position during cylinder head removal. courtesy of nissan motors.

Some engines have a lower and upper chain. These engines do not require special attention to wedging the chain. Be sure to look for hidden head bolts and check the repair manual before removing the OHC head.

Need timing chain marks for 02 dodge 4.7


There are no " Marks" to line up. There is a h whole set of alignments you have to do.
The engine needs to be at TDC. there are colored links on both the secondary timing chains that align with A. the holes on the Idler sprocket, 4 O'clock & 8 O'clock. and B. with the cam sprockets having the V8 at the top of both cams the colored chain link aligns with the R or L of the corresponding Right or Left cam. This all needs to be done in proper order at maintain proper valve timing. failure to do so will end up with possible valve to piston damage. It is better to get the book on the truck for $25.00 rather than do hundreds in damage. You can even get DIY subscriptions online delivered right to your computer instantly for about $20.00
Sorry I type way too slow and would take me all night to tell you exactly how to do it.
But if you are engine savvy and have good knowledge as to slack on the timing chain goes on the return side of the chain to cam from crank, (tensioner side) reset your tensioner & pin before you install the chain tensioner. you can do it.

How do i set the valve timing if i cant see the timing marks on a VW 1.8 20valve golf cylinder head timing chain , i can only find the one on the belt side i have put the cam on TDC for the ex-valve but...


The 2 cams are linked with a chain at the rear of the cylinder head.

The cams need to be set so the slots on the chain sprockets line up with the cam tower caps with 16 links between cam caps.

You cannot see the front crank pulley tdc mark so you need to lock the engine at tdc with a screwdriver jammed into the timing hole on the bell housing after setting engine at tdc or use a DTI
to check to tdc in the #1 spark plug hole.

If the cams have not been disturbed you only need to set the belt cam sprocket to the mark and crank to tdc.....all this means pulling the core support into the service position so the belt tensioner can be locked down and/or doing a complete belt job along with a coolant pump if over 70,000 miles..

Could you let me know where the timing marks are for a Suzuki Grand Vitara 1.9 DDiS


check around the inside (towards the block) edge or crank shaft pulley by the lower passenger side of the engine. Otherwise it will be by that pulley on the bloc, those are the only laces I've known them to be. Hope it helps

How to align timing sprocks on a 1997 z24 chevrole cavalier


You will need 2 5/16 drill bits. There is a 5/16 hole in each cam gear. With the crankshaft 1/8 turn off TDC, turn the cam gears so the hole is down. Insert the drill bit into the hole and move the gear slow until the bits slides into a hole in the rear timing cover. Do this to both cam pulleys. When you have both bits installed, this will lock the cams. Don't turn the cams with the crank at TDC, It will bend valves. Once you have the cams locked, turn the crank 1/8 of a turn back to TDC. Don't go the other way. The TDC mark on the crank should be a dot on the gear and a arrow on the rear timing cover. Then after everything is lined up, Install the chain,guides and tensioner. After everything is installed, Turn the crank two revolutions, and line the crank back up to TDC. If the timing is right, you should be able to insert the drill bits in each cam gear. Hope this helps.
