Timing procedure for 1992 nissan 4 cyl. d21 2wd manual trans pickup


Timing marks are off. Get access to the crank mark and cam marks. Make sure they are in the right position. Reset them , turn the crank two revolutions by hand and make sure they are still lined up. Not close, but lined up. If off a bit, use a pry bar on the tensioner, tighten up and recheck.

A Isuzu NPR 4hf1 rotary pump timing marks set


Hi. If it has a rotary pump, the pump needs to be installed with the crank at 49 deg BTDC on the compression stroke cyl 1. Mark dot gear on pump with white paint. Line up dot gear on pump with line on pump bracket and install. Remove PRM sensor from bell housing and check if line on pump gear is still lined up with line on pump bracket.

How do I refit the distributor on a 5 cyl 2.5i m/bus and make sure the timing is correct


The tdc needs to be on (compression stroke)you can use a compression gauge to judge compression stroke.or the old school way I do is take out #1 plug and put finger over plug hole in head,let someone bump the starter until the compression blows your finger away from hole. Roll engine by hand.(socket and breaker bar on crank bolt if needed) slowly clockwise to Line up marks. Install distributer with button pointing toward #1 prong in cap.

94 bonneville changed fuel pump starts backfires and dies


Well, since it won't run, you cant check timing with a light. You could try static timing: Bring #1 piston to TDC by mark on scale by crank pulley. Take upper timing chain cover off. Cam pulley should have a mark or circle or dot that lines up with mark on bloick. (Need to make sure you are on compression stroke, not exhaust stroke of piston. How? Best way is pull spark plug and hold finger or thumb over plug hole. As you turn crank (clockwise) with a socket approaching the TDC mark, you will feel pressure build on your finger if you are on compression stroke. Could also have someone bump starter a little at a time, you can feel pressure build on your finger as piston approaches TDC. When it's close, use socket to line up crank pulley with mark.) Now check cam pulley for those timing marks. Valve timing off is often cause of backfires. So is too much gas, but first I would make sure timing is right.

I fitted a timing belt to a 02 fiat punto and adjusted the marks on the crank and cam inline with the spec in the manual the car wont start and is backfiring through the carb any ideas


Good evening, I'm sorry to hear you're having problems however it is nothing that cannor be recovered from. You either have your timing 180 degrees off or your marks moved. A good hint is when you finish your installation give the belt a few rotations until your marks line up again that way you know everything is good. I hope this helps, and if you have anymore questions please feel free to ask.

Looking for timing belt marks on vw 2 liter jetta. car does not want to idle must rev up.


There is no manual adjustment for timing, this is done digitally by using a VAG 1552 scan tool or equivalent. Now if timing mark is all you need just to serve your curiosity then there are a couple.

Set engine to TDC for cylinder #1 by turning the crankshaft until timing mark on flywheel or torque converter aligns with marks on the transmission case.
  • Manual Transmission
Confirm that engine is set to TDC for cyl #1 by checking that the timing mark on the flywheel lines up with notch at inspection hole on manual trans.

  • Automatic Transmission
Confirm that engine is set to TDC for cyl #1 by checking that the timing mark on torque coverter lines up with the edge of the inspection hole on automatic transmission.

Remove upper toothed belt cover. Once removed, you will see the letters O.T. with an arrow on the upper rear toothed belt guard. Check that mark on camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on toothed belt guard. This brings camshaft to TDC for cyl. #1.

It is unlikely that a belt has skipped a cog, but if that happens your engine will run very rough or not operate at all. You might have other issue in the air metering sensors (MAF) which doesn't take account of temperature. That means whether the engine is cold or holt it will always run rough and definitely activate an MIL.
