SOURCE: I'm replacing the head gasket

Bring the crank to TDC while WATCHING CAREFULLY the camshaft, making SURE that the pistons are moving in the correct sequence as the valve train. Once you have the #1 piston on TDC, Set up your valve train with what looks to be the most logical position. Then and only then should you consider the factory spec for setting the lead/lag time of the valve train, in degrees. Hope this helps....accordianman

SOURCE: messed up and took head off without putting #1 piston at TDC

Hi there.... I'm assuming you have the head back on. the easiest way is to try and line up the timing marks an the pulleys and install the timing belt. If you have done this and the timing marks line up as they should, you can take the sparkplug out of the #1 cylinder and manually turn the engine over till you can feel air pressure coming out of the plug hole. continue turning the engine till you can't feel anymore pressure. Don't go too far cause then you'll be on the intake stroke and you'll have to turn the engine the opposite way. with the #1 cylinder at TDC, take you distirbutor and cap and figure out what position the rotor should be at for #1 plug. Mark the distributor somewhere where that position is ( where the #1post on the cap should be). Finally insert the distributor and try to get the rotor as close to that position as possible. remember when you install the distributor, The rotor position will move due to the gear set up. Once you have the distributor istalled, you can adjust the distributor for timing by turning it. Hope this helps you out. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask..

Thanks
Phil

Looking for timing marks for a 3.1


set the ff:
cranckshaft set the gear straight up = 12 o'clock (#1 piston must be at TDC)
camshaft set the gear straight down = 6 o'clock
to verify, the rotor of the distributor is pointing at #1 plug wire.

Need to remove cilinderhead from a chevrolet trailblazer 2003


below are the instruction you well need to remove head .....good luck Removal Procedure
  1. Remove the air cleaner element.
  2. Remove the air cleaner outlet resonator. .
  3. Remove the powertrain control module (PCM) and engine wire harness bracket and related hoses and connections.
  4. Remove the generator.
  5. Remove the intake manifold.
  6. Remove the exhaust manifold. Do not remove the exhaust pipe from the manifold. Only have the manifold pushed off to the side of the engine.
  7. Position the A/C line out of the way towards the front of the vehicle.
  8. Disconnect the following cross-vehicle engine wiring harness connectors:
  9. • Engine coolant temperature sensor • Manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor • Ignition coils • Harness clamps at power steering pump • Wiring harness fastener at the right front inner fender • Throttle body • Camshaft sensors • Camshaft actuators • Fuel rail • Heated oxygen sensor (HO2S)
  10. Set aside the cross-vehicle engine wiring harness on the left side of the vehicle.
  11. Remove the camshaft cover.
  12. Partially drain the cooling system.

  13. Before performing one of the top dead center (TDC) procedures, break loose both the exhaust and intake camshaft sprocket bolts. Use a 25 mm (1 in) open end wrench on the camshaft hexes to hold the camshaft from turning. DO NOT remove the bolts.
  14. Perform one of the following methods for the service timing procedure.
  15. First Method--Rotate the engine clockwise by hand to TDC on the compression stroke by using a piston TDC indicator tool and/or dial indicator in the number 1 cylinder.
  16. First Method (continued)--The TDC indicator tool graduation marks on the shaft should note top of the piston stroke.
  17. First Method (continued)--When the piston is at TDC, the flats at the rear of the camshafts will be facing up and level when using a straight edge across the camshaft flats.
  18. Second Method--Rotate the crankshaft in the engine rotational direction clockwise until the number 1 piston is at TDC on the compression stroke. The word Delphi on the exhaust camshaft position actuator will be parallel with the cylinder head to cam cover mating surface. When the piston is at TDC, the flats at the rear of the camshafts will be facing up and level when using a straight edge across the camshaft flats. A 0.005 inch feeler gauge should not slide under the straight edge (1).
  19. Use a white paint pen or equivalent to place a reference mark on the harmonic balancer to the front cover for alignment purposes.
  20. Lower the vehicle.
  21. Important: If the timing is correct (TDC compression stroke number 1 cylinder), the camshaft flats will be in the up position.
    Install J 44221 to the back of the camshafts.
  22. Remove the upper timing chain guide to the cylinder head.
  23. Clean the timing chain and gears with brake cleaner or suitable solvent. Use a white paint pen or equivalent to place a reference mark on both timing gear sprockets and the timing chain to mark location prior to disassembly. It is recommended that the paint marks be in the 12 o'clock position.

  24. Install EN-48464 . It is important to install the tool with the proper orientation and to ensure that it is seated square against the timing chain and against the timing cover center bolt.


  25. The narrow ramp of the wedge tool needs to be placed so that it faces the timing chain.
  26. The wedge tool should be lightly seated using a couple of very light taps with a small plastic or brass hammer. The wedge tool will be fully seated against the tensioner after it moves about 25 mm (1 in).
  27. Once the tool is correctly installed, unscrew the handle and remove the handle

  28. Remove both upper cylinder head access hole plugs from the front of the cylinder head.
  29. Remove the 1 long and 2 short cylinder head bolts next to the exhaust and intake timing chain tensioner shoes and discard the bolts.
  30. Remove both upper timing chain tensioner shoe bolts.
  31. Remove the exhaust and the intake camshaft sprocket bolts. Discard the bolts.


  32. Carefully remove the exhaust and intake camshaft sprockets with the timing chain from the exhaust and intake camshafts. The illustration shows the exhaust camshaft sprocket already removed.


  33. Remove the sprockets from the chain, tie a piece of mechanic's wire on the timing chain and let it drop.


  34. Before removing the cylinder head bolts, use a drift punch and hammer to shock the bolts. This will ensure that the cylinder head bolts will not strip out the threads in the engine block or break. If a bolt breaks during engine disassembly, EN-47702 is available to assist in the removal of the remaining bolt segment.
  35. Remove the cylinder head bolts. Discard the bolts.
  36. Remove the cylinder head.
  37. Place the cylinder head on a flat, clean surface with the combustion chambers face up, in order to prevent damage to the deck face.
  38. Remove the cylinder head gasket.
  39. Discard the gasket.
  40. Remove all remaining gasket material from the engine block.
  41. Inspect the cylinder head gasket mating surface on the engine block.
  42. Clean and inspect the cylinder head.
  43. Disassemble the cylinder head if necessary.

With #1 piston at tdc what position doese the rotor need to be in on 2001 4.3L 6 cylinder?


standing in front of the vehicle its the one at 4 to 5 o clock pisition the fireing order is 165432 . And if you are doing timeing chain work # 4 clinder is the one that has to be at TDC to align the timeing chain for correct timeing

I changed piston rings on my GA15 and got the valves set on the cyl head but now the motor won't start.The timing is fine Help!


Need to check these things first
Has it got fuel?.......................Is there fuel in the carby bowl? Has it gt a spark?...................Does the spark occur when the piston is near TDC? Has it got air?........................Check compressions
Did you remove the timing chain / if so I suspect you have incorrect valve timing.....easily checked by turning engine by hand till the piston approaches TDC then the rotor arm must be opp that spark plug lead. As the piston comes up to TDC the air should be rushing out of the cylinder.

Replaced head. Now can't get engine timed


i just rebuilt my 22r you have to make sure the chain is set on the timing gears properly also when you put the distributer in you have to find tdc on the #1 cylinder on the compression stroke. the piston travels and the valves open and close after the exhaust valve opens and closes the intake valve will open as the piston travels down when it closes the piston will travel back up compresing the fuel when the dot on the crank lines up with the mark on the timing cover that is tdc top dead center on the compresion stroke. once you have that yoo slide in th distributor so as the rotor points at the number one contact on the cap

To set the timing you should turn the No.1 piston to TDC, then turn the cam to where both valves on No.1 are close. The timing mark on the sproket should now be in line with the mark on the cilinder head. With No. 1 still on TDC fit the chain.
After fitting turn the engin a few times by hand to make sure there's not a valve pushing against a piston.

2001 alero new timing chain and coils


Hi Angiebaby,

You will have to aligne the crankshaft at TDC =top dead center i.e the piston on # 1 should be on top and the # 4 too i.e.if its a 4 cylinder engine.
If the camshaft doesnt fully turn ...i.e. rotating 360 degrees.. then its the pistons which is obstructing the rotation.....so rotate the crankshat and keep the pistons say half way thn bring the camshaft to its mark ..once done thn you can set the crankshaft to TDC.
you should be ok here !! GOOD-LUCK

Timing chain replacement


there will be two highlighted or dotted chain links for the camshaft and one for the crankshaft gear, position cam dot/TDC indicator in the 12-O clock position, the two dotted links should be on ether side of cam dot, turn crank dot to the 6-O clock position and line up highlighted link with dot on crank gear, if timing cover is on, then make sure cylinder 1 is at TDC when the two links are at 12-O clock.
