How are you trying to line it up? Did you do any engine work to it? Most have a hex on the front of the crankshaft that you can put a socket on and turn it with a breaker bar. If its standard and the belt is connected, you can also put it first and rock the car to slowly move the crankshaft.

Sprocket gears up arrows upside down crank at tdc ,removed belt,replaced water pump ready to install gears back on.


No. Make sure it lines back up. Some vehicles are two revolutions of the crank to one rev for the cam/s. Some are four rev to one. If they don't line up. Reset the timing. If it doesn't line up, At best it won't start. At worse you could trash the engine,Interference engine. Some engines go off the chain. It could take up to 32 revolutions to bring the marks back in line.

How do i set timing chian marks


The marks are on the crank and cam gears. They either have a mark on the head that coincides with the mark on the cam gear AND you set that AND then bring the crank shaft gear to TDC on the timing marks OR you have both marks on the gears and you line them up with each other using a straight edge through the center of the shafts, then you put the chain on.

Does my 2003 dodge caravan have an interference engine


Not sure but if doing belt yourself I will give you important tips. 1) before removeing T/Belt set engine to TDC nr 1 there should be marks on the crank and cam (s) gears that line up with a mark on the block / head. 2) prior to removeing tension to belt get liquid paper & mark cam gear(s) & crank gear to point on block / head. 3) mark T/Belt to cam(s), crank, balance shaft if fitted. 4) release tension & remove belt. 5) transcribe marks from old belt to new belt & make sure correct amount of teeth. 6) fit new belt so YOUR marks line up. 7) have tensioner suply presure to belt. 8) turn motor twice by hand to make sure pistons no hit valves 9) Make sure YOUR marks line up if YOUR marks line up it has to be right. 10) Very IMPORTANT if spring tensioner lossen locking bolt again to take up extra slack in belt. 11) tighten locking bolt. 12) put back together.

99 chevy vorte marks wont line up


if you lined up marks on cam and crank gears when you installed timing chain and you used the original timing cover and timing mark tab and did not turn engine before checking the marks the balancer is spun and needs to be replkaced if the engine has been turned it may be 180 degrees out of time you will need to turn engine at least two full revolutions and recheck maybe upto 4 times if it still does not line up with all original parts no chrome timing covers or timing tabs the balancer is bad and needs replaced

I need to replace the cam belt on Mazda Familia Z5 DOHC can you tell me how to line up the timing marks


After you remove the timing belt cover you will see the two small gear wheels on the top of the engine, there should be, just above the center bolts of the gears, a little raised bump or notch these are the TDC (top dead center) marks they should also have a corresponding mark on the engine housing that they will need to be pointed at. As well the crank wheel also has similar marks. These all need to be TDC. You will then thread the belt onto the gears, keeping it tight, from the crank, over the two cams, passed the tensioner and back to the crank. Turn the crank by hand two complete turns using a breaker bar and socket on the crank shaft bolt. Look at the marks and they all should be back at TDC, if not repeat the process until they are. If they are try starting the engine. A timing gun may be needed to fine tune it but it should be close enough to run. Good luck

Settings to replace cam belt


There should be marks stamped into the cam and crank gears that need to line up with corresponding marks on the backing plate before you remove the cambelt.

If there are no markings, you need to make your own.

Rotate crank until at TDC (reinstall the crank drivebelt pulley loosely and front cover to do this, then take them off again)

Once at TDC, use correction fluid and mark the crank position twice - once on the crank gear itself and a corresponding mark on the backing plate.

Ditto for the cam gear.

Make sure these marks are aligned when cambelt is replaced, turn engine one full revolution when new cambelt is on to double check marks line up where they should and you're good to go.

Sometimes the cam isn't marked but the crank gear is. In that case line up the crank gear and use the above step to mark the cam gear.

Be precise as the cam gear will most likely move when you take the cambelt off due to tension from the cam on the rockers

Hope this helps :)
