I aligned the crank shaft,,water pump pulley. and the cam shaft marks up and recheck the origninal marks I made to save time....one of the cam shafts had slipped enough to cause it to be "off time" and the computer could not correct for it...realignment of the marks and making sure nouthing changes was the solution..

Timing marks


timing marks are typically on the crank pulley, without knowing what vehicle it is, look around the water pump. sometimes, there is a gap behind the water pump where you can see the marks. either way, they should be on the crank pulley.

I changed the water pump on a 1996 Camry and the timing got off. What do I do?


You will have to make sure the bottom timing mark is pointing strait up. Then make sure the top timing mark is strait down. Then put your timing belt back on. Also make sure that the top mark is on exhaust not on the intake valve. Not to hard to do but is teteis work.

2002 Mitsubishi diamante- Where is the tensioner and how do I release it?


I assume you are going after the water pump. there are three tensioners you have to adjust to get there. The rest is bonus material in case you are really ambitious. All Mitsubishi cars pretty much hide the water pump under the timing belt. You should buy all new belts for the car and if you have 150,000+ miles consider replacing the water pump at the same time.
You will have to take off the power steering belt .
First , take off the negative battery cable so you do not blow an expensive fuse on the positive battery cable clamp. Facing the back of the car , reach UNDER the alternator and loosen the bolt on the bottom right side, now loosen the bolt on the adjuster block on top, you can now turn the adjuster bolt and move the alternator to change the belt.
To take off the steering pump belt on the front of the motor, you need to loosen the nut on the back side of the pulley it holds the adjuster pulley in place . With the adjuster pulley loose , you can use the adjuster bolt to move the pulley to adjust/take off the steering pump belt.
Now take off the upper belt cover, support the motor, take off the motor mount, jack up the right front corner of the car, take off the front right tire, take off the engine plastic under cover.
Line up the TDC timing mark on the cover to the mark on the pulley, take off the lower pulleys (use an air gun and impact socket),
take off the lower engine cover, observe the timing marks/arrows and highlight with paint (crank marks and cam marks should all line up if not , rotate the crankshaft one full turn.), loosen the timing belt tensioner pulley ,take off the timing belt, counter balancer belt if there is one. Now you can unbolt the water pump, scrape the gasket, and replace it.
The good news is, if you have tools,a compressor, an air gun(for lower pulley bolt), patience , and four to eight hours to kill, you can actually save money and do it your self.

When i change the timingbelt,How do i Time it?


Set your timing mark on outer cover to the flywheel timing mark on pulley(T mark), then take the covers off and look you will clearly see marks that line up on the cam pulley to block,crank gear to block, and water pump shaft to crank (separate belt replace both, and replace water pump in high mile cars. ) These marks will all line up when you rotate the motor to top dead center on the compression stroke..

Changed the water pump on my 1997 passport & now the timing is off.


I assume you are talking about valve timing not igntion timing. If that is the case your water pump maybe run by the timing belt. If it is you would need to completely disassemble the timing cover and set the number one cylinder to TDC (top dead center) on the Compression stroke not the exhaust stroke. Once you do that line the timing marks up on cam gears with marks on the side of the head. Then install a new timing belt and tensioner. It is a good idea to always change the pump and belt together. I would suggest buying a manual for your specific vehicle for specific torque specs and exact locations of components and procedures.
