1998 rav4, 3sfe motor

Changed out timing belt and oil pump seal, cranked the motor sounded fine but did not start so I went back to check the marks again and they were at the right spot so I tried to rotate the crank by hand and it would only rotate around 1 time to a stopping point, put it in neutral and now will only turn 1/2 rotation and reason why??? Any ideas would be appreciated. 3sfe motor

Did you try rotating the CAS input shaft? Remember that the cams spin at half the speed of the crank, so a full spin of the CAS is actually 720 degrees. It could be that the CAS is 360 degrees out of phase and causing the car not to run properly. Unbolt it and remove it carefully. Rotate the input shaft (the part that mates with the cam) 360 degrees and put it back on, and see if that helps.

Also, just making sure, when you double-checked the cam timing marks, you did verify that in addition to the four cam sprockets being aligned properly, the crank timing mark is also aligned correctly, right?

SOURCE: 1996 timing belt changed, lined up all the marks,

Hi my name is juan and lets try to solve this it is possible that when you rotated the camshaft the distributor last his position and this is why it won't start it may not be the problem but this happens a lot so open your distributor and aline up your marks on camshaft and the crankshaft then make sure the distributor is pointing near the #1 spark plug if is opposite give it a 1 more turn to the crankshaft line up your marks again and se what happens #1 spark plug is the closets to the front part of the engine on 4cil

check your oil make sure the crank seal is ok that u didnt spill ur oil and blow it up. then check the timing belt - you may not have had the tension tight enough on the timing belt and it may have skipped a bit causing it to not fire. i think thats the most likely.

SOURCE: I just recently changed the water pump on my 96

Since you have double checkedthe timing and checked the battery make sure you are getting a spark at the plugs and that you are getting fuel. Make sure all sensors are plugged in and are working. Check near the crankshaft (front) for a small sensor and be sure it is plugged in. This is because some vehicles have a crankshaft position sensor to regulate when the spark is delivered to the plugs.

How to change a timing belt with a 2.4ltr motor?


Lift the car on lift and remove right tire . Remove front engine mount on the timing cover. Remove timing cover. Align the top timing mark on camshaft to the mark on back cover. Crankshaft will align automatically. Lose the belt tensioner and remove the belt.
I will suggest to replace the water pump and the seal on the camshaft and crankshaft. Install the belt and turn by hand crankshaft twice. make sure the marks align again. Install the cover, mount,serpentine belt.refill coolant. Bleed the system and run the engine till warm and radiator fan start. Cool and check the coolant level again.
good luck

Audi a4 alt motor sounds like running on 3 cylinders


Robert your going have to check the oil pressure the oil pumps on these engines tend to let go. What happens the key way that drives the gear strips and at low rpms it doesn't pump oil to the top of the motor but when you rev it the gear spins a little faster that's why it makes less noise you will have to replace the oil pump. As for the missing the hydrolic lifters are no working properly because of the low oil pressure.

Double check timing, even when the marks ligned up sometimes lack of belt tension would give the impression of a perfect alignment but when you adjust it goes off.

Change front main seal , leaking oil around timing chain cover. could be seal around harmonica balancer.


yes, I just changed one of these recently. Had to take both front and bottom off engine. Very difficult repair, as there are no good jack points for the engine when you have all the motor mounts off.
Here is procedure I would recommend.
Remove starter and engine to transmission brackets front and back.
Remove transmission starter gear cover.
drain oil and remove oil pan.
put a block under the crankshaft and jack to release weight on motor mount.
remove front motor mount (by serpentine belt)
remove belt.
remove compressor and bracket.
remove crank pulley and vib damper.
remove timing cover. mark timing belt with direction of travel
loosen tensioner gear.
remove timing belt.
remove crankshaft timing gear and key.
remove seal and oil pump housing.
clean gasket surfaces.
replace seal and reverse procedure.

If you have questions, let me know.

1995 Honda Passport timing alginment 3.2 ltr 6VD1 engine


The crankshaft should have the timing mark on the crank pulley (Notch in the outer edge of the pulley near the keyway) It should align with the timing mark on the oil pump. (With the keway turned to about the 3 O'clock position.)

Align the marks on the camshaft timing pulleys with the corresponding dots on the front plate.

If you are installing a new belt, it should have 2 solid white lines printed on it that you would align with the timing marks on the cams and a dotted white line to align with the timing mark on the crank.

It makes a difference which way you put the belt on. (Which edge faces the front of the engine.) Most, but not all brands of belts have arrows and the word "FRONT" on them to tell you which edge of the belt shoud face the front of the motor. If there is no mark to tell you which edge is front, the letters on the belt must be able to be read correctly as viewed from the front of the vehicle.

you will need a impactgun or a way to hold pulley and then get bolt loose. before you take the belt off, turn the crank until the cam is lined up. there is a small hole on the cam gear, this will be at 12'oclock and a mark is directly behind it.(look through the hole to see mark) then look where the crank gear is, there will be a mark to line it up at TDC. to do th ebest job, replace the cam and crank seals, water pump and reseal the oil pump. replace the tensioner pulley.be sure to tension the belt correctly.
