Check the chilton or haynes repair manuals, I believe you can also find this out on line. just make sure its on the compression stroke and the marks are exact. I have a tool that holds the dual over head cams in the correct in position. Good luck with your project.

1991 Dodge Dakota 3.9l Timing question


According to the book, you are supposed to mark the rotor on the distributor before removal and then put it back in place. If the crank has been moved, you align the mark on the crank damper with zero on the timing cover when the number one cylinder is at TDC. Then put the distributor in so that the rotor is pointing to the number one plug wire. It does not say anything about using a timing light.
You may want to check out a repair book in an auto parts store to get the details.

Engine timing


If all your marks are right there is a process for seting the timing that some people are not aware of. Did you jump the terminals at the data link connector (number 1) ? If you did not the toming will never set itself. Below is the proper procedure for setting the timing. Make sure your idle is at 700 + 50 and in nuetral. Hope this helps. The botom picture is the location of the data link connect (DLC1) that needs to be jumped.

Tanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You have a dip stick that has marks on it. You should have a cold mark and a hot mark. Some only have one mark, which is to check when the car is warm. You should allow the car to run for about 10 minutes before you check it. Make sure you check it on level ground. If you are above the mark, then you have to much in it. If your below it, add more. Add very little at a time so you don't over fill it. If you are at the mark, the level is correct. The dip stick should be on the right side of the engine, most times. It may be labeled.

The TDC mark is usually the second one in the direction of rotation. To make sure you have the right mark, if you still have the tappet cover off, number 1 cylinder valves should rock at TDC when you move the crank backwards and forwards.

I have a 2000 dodge caravan trying to time it dont know how has a 3.0 motor


set the timing mark on the crankshaft to the mark on the oil pump, then set the timing mark on the camshaft to the mark on the alternator bracket/set second camshaft mark to mark on the inner timing belt cover. line up all mark as decribed. be sure before u set anything to bring #1 piston all the way up to top. with belt on turn crankshaft 2 full turns to bring #1 piston back to top if the cams are not lined up correctly loosen belt and start over again until everything lines up correctly. you may have to do this a few times but it will work.

Remove cylinder # 1 spark plug, # 1 is the front one on drives side, turn crankshaft pulley to TDC on compression stroke, you'll feel the comperssion at cylinder #1 spark plug hole, follow cylinder # 1 spark plug wire to distributor cap, mark outer part of distributor where # 1 sits, remove distributor and restabe distributor with rotor at mark you made, then set timing.

2001 1500 4.3L did intake job cant get to start right


ok there is no way to physicaly time the engine with a light. you need to bring #1 cylinder to TDC then install dist. mark contact for ign wire #1 on cap outer as accurately as possible. then mark dist. base with same mark. allign rotor with mark and tighten clamp. assemble and fire make sure fireing order is right,cap is stamped on top. the exact way to set is with a scanner, cam(dist.) sensor and crank sensor need to bolth read #1 TDC at 0 degree advance and tighten clamp, computer takes over from there. be as accurate as possible, if done right it will run, if engine light flashes, your too far off try to bump a tick either way and have a tech set for you with a scanner. best of luck!

take the timing belt off reset the crank at 0 with # 1 piston at TDC ensure that both cams are up at twelve 'oclock with belt on, when the tension is released and the tensioner is tightened turn the crank atleast 360 degrees and ensure that the timing does not shift before starting engine
