Question about 1999 Isuzu Rodeo

Open Question

How do I time the crankshaft with the overhead cam, what is the setting of the crankshaft? Is it top dead centre or 5 degrees from top dead centre?

I replaced head gasket and now want to know how to do what is requested above.

Remove the cam and double check the journals. If the truck had gotten hot enough, it could've scarred the journals. Make sure the journals are nice and smooth. If they're not, it will cause a bind on the camshaft causing it to "grab". I just went through this on a Lincoln Navigator.

SOURCE: timing belt replacement on a 1999 isuzu rodeo 2.2

When you replaced the cylinder head, it would have been absolutely critical that the camshaft was already in the right position before you bolted it down. You cannot just bolt the head on and then turn things to line up the cam timing marks or you will bend valves while doing so. If this is what happened, the engine will not start and the head will have to come back off so that you can replace the bent valves.

SOURCE: 1989 Isuzu pickup how to align timing marks on cam and crank?

The Isuzu is a strange animal-when you do the timing belt you set it with #1 TDC "BUT" the distributor is timed with TDC #4 I found this the hard way and finally had to buy a cd with the procedures on it. Send me an e-mail address and I will forward the associated pictures &
info to you.

TIMING BELT & SPROCKETS R & I
NOTE: Some procedures may differ slightly due to engine
construction.
Removal
1) Remove all necessary air ducts. Position No. 4 piston at
TDC of compression stroke. Align timing marks. See Fig. 2. Remove fan
and fan shroud. Remove belts. If necessary, remove radiator and
splashguard.
2) Prevent engine from rotating and remove crankshaft timing
pulley retaining bolt. Remove upper and lower timing belt covers.
Remove spring from tension pulley. Loosen adjusting bolt and move
pulley toward water pump. Remove timing belt.
CAUTION: Ensure pistons are at TDC when rotating camshaft or damage
may result.
Inspection
1) Handle timing belt carefully. Avoid twisting or kinking
belt. Do not allow belt to become contaminated by water, oil, dirt or
other contaminates. Inspect belt for cracks or damage. If necessary,
replace.
2) Measure tension pulley spring length and force. Spring
length should not exceed 2.76" (70.2 mm) and spring force should not
be less than 197-347 lbs. (27-48 kg).
3) Replace tension pulley spring if not within specification.
Installation
1) Pull tensioner fully toward water pump side and
temporarily tighten retaining bolt. Ensure No. 4 cylinder is at TDC on
compression stroke by rotating crankshaft until keyway aligns with
mark on front crankshaft seal housing (12 o’clock). Rotate camshaft
until timing mark on cam gear (arrow) aligns with mark on upper
camshaft cover (notch). See Fig. 2.
NOTE: When timing marks are aligned as stated above, No. 4 piston
is at TDC on compression stroke.
2) Position timing belt over crankshaft sprocket, oil pump
sprocket, camshaft sprocket and tensioner in that order. Ensure belt
is positioned in sequence given and without slack between sprockets.
Loosen tension sprocket adjusting bolt allowing spring tension to
tighten belt. Tighten adjusting bolt temporarily.
3) Temporarily install crankshaft pulley bolt and rotate
crankshaft 2 complete revolutions in opposite direction of engine
rotation, until marks on crankshaft and front oil seal retainer are
aligned again. See Fig. 2. Loosen tensioner lock bolt, allowing
tesioner spring to fully adjust tension. Tighten tensioner lock bolt.
4) Install timing belt covers. To complete installation,
reverse removal procedures. Tighten all bolts to specification. See
TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS table at end of this article.

03 Saturn vue 160 lb compression on 1/3/5 no compression on 2/4/6 timing marks are lined up.


You have 2/4/6 timing marks 180 degress out on exhaust or intake cam .

Did your special tool ?
Rotate the crankshaft using the J 42098 until the #1 cylinder is at 60 degrees before top dead center (BTDC).
Install theJ 42069 Crankshaft Locking Tool.
Rotate the crankshaft in the engine rotational direction (clockwise) using the J 42098 until the #1 cylinder is at top dead center (TDC) and tighten the lever arm to the water pump pulley flange.
Important: Ensure that the alignment of the crankshaft is not 180 degrees off. The alignment mark must align with the corresponding notches on the rear timing belt cover.
Install the 1-2 and 3-4 camshaft locks, the J42069-1 Timing Belt Alignment Kit and the J42069-2.
Important: Do not rotate the crankshaft if the camshafts are not locked in place with the 1-2 and 3-4 camshaft locks (J42069-1 and J42069-2).
Important: Do not rotate the camshafts unless the crankshaft is at 60 degrees BTDC or the valves may contact the crankshaft.
Loosen the tensioner pulley.
Remove the timing belt.

How many chain link do I count to set the timing


When you are setting timing you are setting top dead center and bottom dead center. Once established based on the marks on the crank and cam you adjust top dead and BDC by degrees in ADVANCED timing or behind/retarded timing by degrees by counting links. Each link used to be 5 degrees. Check repair manual on link values! they change with each engine and maker.

When timing my Toyota pickup 1992 what is 5 degrees before to dead center


Hi,when you put the timeing belt on the cank pully is at the 0 mark,wich is (T,D,C)top dead centre,now the other timeing you are talking about is called the ignition timeing,wich is when the spark ignites the fuel and air in the cumbustion chamber,this is why the ignition has to be set 5%(B,T,D,C)before top dead centre.
wright first inline the top dead centre 0mark back up on the crankshaft pully,then take off distributer cap and undo securing bolt so that distributor can turn,
the rotor arm should be pointing at the number one (H,T,L)high tention lead,now slowly turn the distributor anti clock wise,then slowly turn the distributor clock wise,now as it comes up to the number one h,t,lead it should spark,when it sparks tighten the disributor bolt back up,right it should start up and run maybe not to good but it should run,
now buy a timeing light where you can put the 5% into the timeing gun itself,so now put the earth and positive on the earth of the battery and the clip onto the H,T,lead start the car again and point the strobe light from the gun onto the 0T,D,Centre markthe mark should freez every time the light flashes on it ,undo bolt on distibutor and ajust verry slowly when you are happy that the mark is lineing up propperly then I think thts job done.
all the best.

Timing mark crankshaft


15 degrees btcd is too far advanced for a normal engine . If you have the mark at 15 aftdc then it will run with no power and will overheat and burn valves
on the timing plate there will numbers on either side of a large line . That is top dead centre . What you are after is 10 degrees before the mark on the balance reaches that big line .. IT will be graduated in 5 degrees bits.

Looking for cam timing mark on diesel 2l motor?


If you don't know what your cam timing mark is and the cam belt is off, make sure that the crankshaft is on Top Dead Centre (TDC). Turn it clockwise using the pully bolt until the timing marks lign up. If you feel any resistance, go back a little and move the cam shaft about 45 degrees as the piston is making contact with a valve. Carry on with the crankshaft until it is right. Take the rocker cover off and turn the camshaft until the inlet and exhaust valves on the rear cylinder are both opening an equal amount. You will see the camshaft lobes pushing them open. If you feel too much resistance move the crankshaft around a little to let the valves clear the pistons, then move the crankshaft back. If you look at the front cylinder, you will see that both valves are fully closed. This is TDC. See if you can find a mark and what it is lining up with. When you have reassembled everything, using a spanner on the crankshaft nut, turn the engine over clockwise for two full revolutions and if it turns without locking up (pistons touching valves) and all the timing marks still line up you can start it up. If your pump timing is still correct, you should be done. Don't run the engine with the rocker cover off or you will get oil everywhere.
