How do I fit the crank trigger wheel in the right position

It was suggested that the hole in the wheel should be in the 5 O'clock position and the minus 2 tooth in the 9 O'clock position, but that is imposible due to that the two is opposite of each other. For example if the hole is at the 6 O'clock position then the two tooth gap is at the 12 O'clock position. Could anyone please be so kind and help me on this. I have tried the agents in Cape Town but with no luck

That's wrong and the mechanic should know that. For 96 and newer cars, OBD 2 (onboard diagnostics, second generation) systems are in use, and the codes that come up are four digit codes.

That means that the code you got is 1255, not four individual one-digit codes (even a pre-96 car would have two digit codes, not single digit). Generically, a 1200-series code deals with fuel and air metering, but unfortunately I don't have a listing for a 1255. What symptoms does your car have? Is it just bad gas mileage or is it acting up in other ways? Post up as a reply here with anything along those lines that you can think of and I'm sure we'll figure out the problem.

Bolt pattern conversions
mm in
A bolt pattern or lug pattern is the diameter of a circle formed by the centers of the wheel lugs. Bolt patterns can be 4, 5, 6, or 8 lug holes. A bolt pattern of 4x100 would indicate a 4 lug pattern on a circle with a diameter of 100 mm. The bolt pattern is comprised of two numbers, the first indicates how many bolt holes are on the wheel, and the second describes how far apart they are. A bolt pattern of 5-115mm would mean the wheel has five bolt holes and they are 115mm apart (measured across the center of the wheel).

Offset

The lists of bolt patterns to the right includes OS (offset) information in the last two columns. The offset of a wheel is the distance from the mounting surface of the wheel to the true centerline of the rim. A positive offset means the mounting surface of the wheel is positioned in front of the true centerline of the rim / tire assembly. This in effect brings the tire in to the fender well more. Conversely, a negative offset means the mounting surface of the wheel is behind the true centerline of the rim / tire assembly. This will cause the tire to stick out away from the vehicle.
The bolt patterns are marked as either H, M, or L
H = High positive offset - FWD Typically +45, 40, 35 offset
M = Medium offset - RWD Typically +20 offset
L = Low offset - RWD Typically 0 offset

Dual bolt patterns


More often called "dual drilled", some manufacturers (usually cheaper ones) are building their wheels with two bolt patterns. This expands the number of fitments the wheel applies to. For example, a wheel with a 4-100/114.3 bolt pattern has 8 lug holes and will fit both 4-100mm and 4-114.3mm fitments. Without close examination, certain wheels can be mistaken for dual bolt pattern wheels, as some manufacturers will sometimes add a second set of holes only for aesthetics and weight savigs. The holes are often straight through and have no mating surface for the wheel lug nuts.

Centerbore

Centerbore relates to the center hole in the wheel that centers the wheel on the hub of the car. Since most wheels are mass produced, they have a large center bore to accommodate several different vehicles. If this is the case, it is recommended that a hub ring is used. Hub rings are hard plastic or metal ring that fits between the wheel and the vehicle. This centers the wheel perfectly on the hub ensuring that there is no run out when the wheel is installed on to the vehicle. Without hub rings it is possible to get vibrations even if the wheel / tire assembly is perfectly balanced.

2002 VOLVO S80 T6 CODE P0017


the word correlation means relationship between two or more items . In this case it means that when the crank shaft sensor is triggered then the camshaft sensor has to be in agreement that the position of the piston and valves is in the right position to allow spark and fuel.. there are air gaps between each sensor and the rotor that triggers them and if this is not correct or there is dirt in the air gap ( the sensors may be a bit advanced or retarded in the fitment holes) then this relationship of positions is being interfered with and so you get the fault code. If after rechecking the fitment of the sensors and using a scanner to put the engine light off ,you still have a problem ,I would suggest that you find an accredited shop the does a lot of work on your make of car to assist with the fault.

Will crank but not start


Crank sensor may be bad. Crankshaft Position Sensor OPERATION Fig. 1: The CKP sensor trigger wheel rides on the front of the crankshaft. The missing tooth creates a fluctuation of voltage in the sensor 91194p63.jpg
The Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor is a variable reluctance sensor that uses a trigger wheel to induce voltage. The CKP sensor is a fixed magnetic sensor mounted to the engine block and monitors the trigger or "pulse" wheel that is attached to the crank pulley/damper. As the pulse wheel rotates by the CKP sensor, teeth on the pulse wheel induce voltage inside the sensor through magnetism. The pulse wheel has a missing tooth that changes the reading of the sensor. This is used for the Cylinder Identification (CID) function to properly monitor and adjust engine timing by locating the number 1 cylinder. The voltage created by the CKP sensor is alternating current (A/C). This voltage reading is sent to the PCM, it is used to determine engine RPM, engine timing, and is used to fire the ignition coils. prev.gif next.gif

I need the timing marks foe a 1999 elantra 1.8


hi from uk the cambelt timing marks at TDC are as follows--the crank gear mark is lined up with mark on front of engineblock at approx 10-30 am position the marks are clear as you look ? the cam coghas a dot/pop mark just below teeth this mark is at top ie 12-0'clock position now on cam cog you will also see s hole drilledon the cog web also at 12-o/clock if you look thro this hole (use a mirror ?) the hole lines up to a grooved vertical line at the rear which is on front of engine at this point you fit belt fron crank pully anti clockwise round cam cig then reset tensioner when marks are rechecked with belt fitted/tensioned ? turn engine manually two full rotations clockwise then recheck all mark line up again ? then re assemble ? c/shaft pully bolt tightens to=170-180 Nm hope you notice that the new belt is marked as to its rotation with arrows hope this helps ?best wishes from uk

Timing marks on peugeot 1.9 tdi


there is a few ways of doing thes the easiest way being using locking pins
you bont have to go and buy a set of locking pins you can use 3 m8 (13mm headded) bolts and a 5mm allen key

there is a hole in the cam pully and 2 holes in the injection pump pully and 1 in the fly wheel

i suggest you lock the fly wheel up first
the hole is located under the starter motor on the front of the block
insert the 5mm allen key and get someone to turn the crank pully clockwise until allen key engages into the fly wheel

the hole in the cam should be at about 25 past
(if it is at 10 to then you neet to remove the pin from the fly wheel and turn the crank 1 full turn)

when the hole is inthe right place you can insert a m8 bolt and wind it in to the head

with this now lined up you should be able to fit the other 2 m8 bolts into the injector pump pully

with this now done your 1.9 tdi engine is timed up

How to remove the extra tire.


The tools to remove the spare tire should either be behind the bench on the floor or wall, or under the rear seat (king or crew cab) in a trap door. The instructions for removing the spare are printed on Tyvek paper and should be zip tied to the tools.
Hope this helps!

Isuzu trooper problem!with a 00 3 litre diesel engine not starting


Was it lined up right as the trigger point for the sensor is important.Is the fly wheel fitted one position only that the bolt holes line up or will it fit no matter which position it bolts up Line up the flywheel trigger with the sensor after you have put the engine to Top Dead Centre.Put at tdc and see if the trigger and sensor are together.
