SOURCE: How do I tell if

Timing belts are supposed to be replaced in intervals, on this vehicle every 60,000 miles. The timing belt may look good, but they mostly stretch over time. As for the looseness and becoming tight, its because there is different compression tension that pull either way. But to be loose to the point you can spin the tensioner pulley, replace everything (belt, tensioner, idler pulley, water pump)!!

Can anyone tell me ho I need to position crank shaft and camshaft exactly to fit belt straight on 1985 Honda civic shuttle 1.5i gt engine

there is a dot on the sprocket gear for cam and crank shaft set them to top dead center. after installing belt use a long ruler to check alignment. the dots and center bolts should be in a straight line. after checking rotate engine by hand one full cycle to ensure it is free of obstruction. it is best to set timing mark to zero before starting replacement of belt. if belt is broke before starting you may need to rotate the cam and crank at the same time to keep the valves from hitting the cyclinder. check for u tube video, timing belt replacement for your car

I removed rocker arm assembly and did not line up timing marks did i waste the car 2005 dodge neon sxt

Take off the intake side, then set the #1 cylinder to top dead center. When you install the cams, set them close to where the marks should be. Alignment is critical when you put the belt on. After the belt is on turn the engine two revolutions by hand and recheck/reset your marks. Every time you reset it, turn the engine again and recheck marks.

Why doesn't My truck start after changing the Timing belt on My 1999 Ford Ranger?

you need to pull the timing back apart pull the number one spark plug and role the motor over by hand to top dead center on the compression stroke the the mark for the crank should be lined up or almost lined up line it up perfect on its mark then set the cam to its mark install belt role over by hand 2to4 full rotation marks should line up perfect . install crank pulley fire it up for a split second shut it off and put it all back together

How to set timing on 95 k1500 5.7L if distributor was removed without marking and engine was disturbed?

You put the number 1 cylinder at Top Dead Center of its compression stroke, then drop in distributor with the rotor pointing to the #1 spark plug wire.

To find the compression stroke, pull out the number 1 spark plug. With your finger over the hole, turn the crankshaft by hand or use the starter in very short bursts to bump the engine over. As soon as you feel pressure on your finger, stop. The piston in #1 is rising on its compression stroke. Now turn the crank slowly by hand until the piston is at top of its travel. The scale on the crank pulley: line the notch or mark on the pulley with the zero degrees mark on the pointer scale. Now you are at TDC of compression stroke.

Remember that the distributor shaft will turn just a bit as it is seated. You want the rotor pointing directly at the #1 spark plug wire. After engine is running, use a timing light to set to specs. Base timing spec should be shown on the VECI label under the hood.

Is a mazda protege es 2000 1.6l pump gaz changed,spark plug is new , coil is ok, the mark for timing is ok (2cam)but not sure for crank mark i know is the pin on the crank supposely up ,the motor turn but...

If I understanding right, you set the timing on your mazda. you may have set timing on the exhaust stroke. Rotate the crankshaft again with the belts off and realign the timing marks. You need the number 1 cylinder top dead center on the compression stroke not the exhaust stroke. Also take off distributor cap and make sure rotor is pointing toward number 1 cylinder spark plug wire when at top dead center. Hope this is what you were asking.

'92 VW Golf 1.8L timing problems. Changed the belt but have no idea how to get the timing right

You should need the timing light if you didn't move the distributor. If everything is lined up to top dead center, it should start.Make sure the cams and crank pull are set to 0 or at their marked position. Then you can mark the crank pulley with nail polish or some paint at 0 degree and then turn your timing light on while the engine is running and adjust distributor to advance or ****** the ignition timing. Usually its around 8-10 degrees before top dead center. You could refer to the manual for the exact degree.

I need to replace the cam belt on Mazda Familia Z5 DOHC can you tell me how to line up the timing marks

After you remove the timing belt cover you will see the two small gear wheels on the top of the engine, there should be, just above the center bolts of the gears, a little raised bump or notch these are the TDC (top dead center) marks they should also have a corresponding mark on the engine housing that they will need to be pointed at. As well the crank wheel also has similar marks. These all need to be TDC. You will then thread the belt onto the gears, keeping it tight, from the crank, over the two cams, passed the tensioner and back to the crank. Turn the crank by hand two complete turns using a breaker bar and socket on the crank shaft bolt. Look at the marks and they all should be back at TDC, if not repeat the process until they are. If they are try starting the engine. A timing gun may be needed to fine tune it but it should be close enough to run. Good luck

2001 kia optima 2.5L setting the timing

TDC stands for Top Dead Center, however it is only to set the cylinder number ! at TDC, if yu know where the timing marks are align the crank pulley mark to the "0" of the timing mark, usually this can be achieved by setting the crank shaft doel pin to twelve 0 clock position.
