Ignition timing is computer controlled and cannot be checked or adjusted except by using special programming equipment.

Replacing head gasket


Hi
firstly, do you have the equipment to change the head gasket.
ie: a suitable torque wrench for the head bolts?
do you know how to re-time the engine having removed and refitted the timing belt(which you should renew)
I`mj looking at the worshop manual now and I presume you know how to strip an engine
The important part is when you replace the head (having made sure it`s not warped or cracked) and having cleaned all mating surfaces, you should have ten cylinder head bolts the tightening sequence is ____________________________
8 6 2 4 10


9 3 1 5 7
_____________________________

the torque settings are assuming you`rs is a M.40 engine is stage1 30 n/m stage 2: angle tighten 90 degrees stage 3 angle tighten 90 degrees.

Good Luck

Leaking coolant from engine..


Unfortunately, This Problem is Going to Be Either a Blown Head Gasket or a Cracked Block. Just in Case, Check all the Hoses and Check and see if your Model Has a Transmission Cooler Installed, Hopefully on of these is the Culprit. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Need to know how to set the timing


Cylinder #1 set at TDC, compression stroke. Cam marks level with head, aligned with mark on cover, or if unclear where to mark the cam: SET Cam at point where intake valve has just closed and both valves are shut on cyl. #1, cam gear marks should start to appear more clearly to technician, along with corresponding alignment points. This is ballpark. Remember, on clockwise rotation, after cylinder #1 intake valve(s) are shut, the cam will continue to rotate 90 degrees and come to rest at a position in which both exhaust and intake valves are at their maximum lash point. (the most play) Hopefully if you get this close, you will decipher the marks that exist on your Bavarian machine.
