it is simple my dear Mr.Flemming. Before you remove the timing belt just be sure the car is working fine without any problem,remove the alternator belt and power steering belt,remove the timing cover and by hand hand using a socket and ratchet turn clockwise to align the marks on the crank shaft and camshaft ( if you have marks.) if not do practical point by removing the first spark plug and by putting in a thin screwdriver turn slowly slowly watching the screwdriver to come out showing the top end of piston and also check the camshaft to have the last piston valves to be on balance. there you can put at the end of the camshaft a bracket thick according to the camshaft end grove . doing so you lock the camshaft.Mark with paint the crank position on the timing belt side sprocket.then you loose the timing tensioner and remove the cam belt. check about the seals of crank shaft and camshaft not leaking if so renew them.renew the tensioner and the belt. tightening the belt on the tensioner there are two tiny holes by using a tool fitted in the holes go clockwise tightening checking with hand the belt tension just the belt could turn on side slightly- and tight the nut. If tension is correct, remove the bracket from the camshaft and do turn two times clockwise and check whether the marks are aligned. Good luck.
Have you ever replaced the timing belt?? If not the problem is likely to be a loose worn out timing belt. A floppy belt will play havoc with the sensor signals and trigger a check engine light and a camshaft sensor code.
camshaft timing mark at 12 o"clock, align cam shaft timing mark to ( v ) cut on top of back timing cover, crank shaft gear align 12 o'clock key way up, there will be a mark on the outer edge of gear, on housing at 12 o'clock there will be the timing mark align that mark to crank gear , install belt and your done.Good luck.
This is a very very easy timing belt setup. first off you have to remove the valve cover. Then you have to remove the serp belt. Then remove anything thats in your way of the front cover. after you remove the crank pulley re-install the crank bolt. DO NOT LOSEN THE BOLT FOR THE TENSIONER!!!! now spin the crankshaft until the sproket aligns with the timing mark. now at this point the two camshafts should be aligned. now there is a special tool from ford that holds the cam shafts in place. all it is is a 1/4" peice of metal that goes on the left side of the cam shafts to hold them into place. if you mark the cams you wont need the tool. or if you can find something to fit in the left side of the cams that will work too. anyways after that its just the same steps in reverse. very easy to do.
the timing mark for the crank is on the sprocket not the balancer so you can still line up the mark with the block then line up the cams. only thing you have to watch for is if you have to turn the crank far you may touch the pistons to the valves. if this happens its not a big deal as long as you don't force it. turn the cams a little to get the valve out of the way. then line your marks and put the belt on. turn the engine over one rev to double check your marks. tip: this is easyer with the spark plugs out.
I hope you've solved the problem by now, but there are alignment marks on the crank shaft (top pulley), idler (lower side), and cam shaft (smaller, bottom pulley) which should be aligned with stationary marks on the timing belt rear cover.
The belt has marks that align with the aforementioned marks (lines). The double marks on the belt align with the camshaft marks and the single marks with the others.
Loosen the tensioner clamp (nut) to allow the spring loaded tensioner to press on the belt and retighten the nut.
Rotate the crank shaft (clockwise, probably two revolutions) and make sure the pulley marks realign to the marks on the cover (they don't have to realign with the marks on the belt).
Rotate the crank shaft a full revolution once the belt is on and check that alignment is preserved.
Periodically loosen and retension the tensioner nut (access through a hole in the cover) to ensure that tension is maintained as the belt relaxes.
No you need to bring your number 1 cylinder to to dead center, ( T.D.C. ) this will align your crank shaft then you can adjust your you cam marks. You will need to be sure that your number 1 cylinder is on the firing side and not the exhaust side.
