Timing marks on 2002 2.4 litre engine

The diagram shows the marks to be offset a little - the left one is slightly below the right one (facing the engine). Should they tultimately be even with each other or offset like the diagram shows?

    Thanks

    One other question; if it still doesn't crank, could it be the cam sensor or something else wrong?

  • vjackson407 Apr 17, 2009


    • It cranks, but won't start. It will turn over and then it "pops". All the gauges are working. Will try to retime again and get back to you. Thanks for your help.

They'll usually be offset just a hair, and I mean a hair. If it's a tooth off, it's wrong. Make sure the mark on the oil pump is lined up with the MARK on the gear, not the tooth. I think the mark is actually lined up with the trailing edge of the tooth.

    Doesn't crank? or doesn't start? The cam sensor won't prevent it from starting. It'll take longer, but ti will start. If it doesn't crank at all you could have an issue with your starter wiring, battery, pcm, security key module... I could go on all day. Can you give me any more details?

Distributor cap firing order


When facing the engine from the front of the truck, the cylinders are numbered from front left to rear left side of engine 1234. the right side would ten be from front to back 5678. The firing order for a 302cid engine (5.0 litre) is 15426378. The number 1 plug wire in your distributor cap should typically be located on the back side of the cap itself, but the best way to know is to pop the cap and turn your engine over by bumping your starter momentarily until you get your timing marks where you can see them on your harmonic balancer. To ensure you are at top dead center, you may want to pull spark plug number one and stick a screwdriver into the hole. If the screwdriver is stopped because it hits something right away, this means you are 180degrees off and will need to again bump your starter until you once again align your timing marks and then check the cylinder with your screwdriver. this time it should easily enter the cylinder. replace your spark plug and attach the plug wire to the spark plug. Now looking at the rotor underneath the distributor cap, the position it is pointing to is where you plug in wire number 1. You wire your distributor cap counter-clockwise 15426378. I hope this helps you out.

Timing marks and degrees


Align the cam sprockets to the top of the engine with the little arrows on the head. Then you will notice the belt is aligned on the crankshaft at the bottom of the engine with the keyway facing slightly to the left (11 o'clock position or so). It will not be straight up. There is a little "o" mark on the crankshaft sprocket which aligns with a mark on the new belt. Getting these marks exact requires writing down their exact locations before removing the old belt. Don't try it from memory unless you are a trained toyota factory technician. The cam sprockets at the top of the engine are lettered "R" and "L". The new timing belt will have corresponding letters. The timing belt has to be placed on with the letters reversed as they are facing you (as the "R" cam is actually on your left as you face the engine from the passenger side). My job turned out excellent. Cost me less that $50 bucks. I did not change the tensioner although it is recommended. My theory is that it will last until the second timing belt job since it does not have a lot of moving parts and is enclosed and lubricated constantly.

Trying to find a diagram of the timing marks for crankshaft and camshaft and injector gear for a b series 6bta engine . and does the oil pump sit away from the block face slightly thanks.


I had the same diagram problems too I got two that still didn't seem to work right.
I used the timing marks found on the timing belt cover for reference, found top dead center on #1 and lined up the mark on 05 on the cover.
Then lined up the **** marks near the timing gears all together. Make sure you get the tension-er tight after this ,nothing worse than leaving that bolt loose and having it all slip when you go to start it.

I need instructions on how to put on a timing belt for a 95 toyota avalon


You have to remove all the brackets holding the top of the engine on the passenger side of the car, alternator, power steering, and A/C belts. Then you can get to the plastic covers that enclose the timing belt. The large bolt holding the harmonic balancer was a hard one for me - had to use a large air impact (fortunately my neighbor has a tire business and had a huge compressor on the back of his truck).

Align the cam sprockets to the top of the engine with the little arrows on the head. Then you will notice the belt is aligned on the crankshaft at the bottom of the engine with the keyway facing slightly to the left (11 o'clock position or so). It will not be straight up. There is a little "o" mark on the crankshaft sprocket which aligns with a mark on the new belt.

Getting these marks exact requires writing down their exact locations before removing the old belt. Don't try it from memory unless you are a trained toyota factory technician. The cam sprockets at the top of the engine are lettered "R" and "L". The new timing belt will have corresponding letters. The timing belt has to be placed on with the letters reversed as they are facing you (as the "R" cam is actually on your left as you face the engine from the passenger side).

There should be an emissions label under the hood (the front of the car) and near that there should be a diagram showing how the belt is routed just buy the correct belt and put it on but be carefull cause the belt has to tensioned correctly or it will fall off.

I need to know the timing marks for a 2002 honda civic 1.7 litre engine


There are 4 marks on the crank pulley. When standing on the driver side of the car looking down on the pulley, the mark farthest to the right is the mark for TDC (Top Dead Center). The three marks on the left are for the spark timing. Of these three the mark in the center should align with the arrows/triangles on the timing belt cover when the engine is running and a timing light is shining on the crank pulley. The outer two marks represent Honda's tolerances for the ignition timing. As you look at the cam pulley the correct mark is at 7 o'clock with the two other marks at 3 & 9 o'clock positions. make sure you have correc timing, honda have "O" tolerance when it come to piston and the valves meets. or stop by any auto part store they should have Hane's auto repair manuel for 20.00 buck, worth all the money with proper instruction including picture, great investment to have for the future repair. spend little money to make sure you do the right job. good luck!!
