Usually there is a dot on the crank gear and one on the cam gear. Crank is up and cam is down but you still need to make sure you have TDC=top dead center

SOURCE: is there 2 timing marks on each cam gears one is

Click on the following direct Free Link. It has the correct Timing Belt Diagrams, including the one for the 2.4L. Scroll down that Page to the Diagram with the 2.4L Camshaft Timing Marks. As you can see there is a 1/2 notch difference. There are also additional Diagrams that will be very useful to you. I've worked alot on the 2.4L and trying to line these up 'perfectly' can cause problems.
Note: That Link Page contains: the 2.4L SOHC, 2.4L DOHC, 2.7L DOHC, and the 3.0L SOHC Engine Diagrams.

2007 huyndia tucson 2.0 i need the timing marks on exhaust cam and inake cam on the chain


Exhaust camshaft gear and Intake gears have dots on them, chain has colored links. Align colored links to dots or count 14 links from ex cam dot to intake dot. Make sure that the mark on the cambelt side is set first on ex side. Small hole on ex cam gear (cambelt) side to line up with mark on head.

Timing chain marks needed for Audi A4 B9 1.8tfsi 2009 model. Engine was taken out and settings not marked. This is extremelyurgent. Please help


diagrams I have show a twin cam set up with 2 balancing shafts. The marks on the cam shaft point to (left cam shaft 11 oclock the mark on the right point to the 1 oclock position. The chain will have 3 black links-- the top black links will be at the timing marks on the shafts with the 3rd black link directly at 6 oclock facing a mark on the gear. The balancer marks both point to the 1 oclock position with black links on each and the 3rd black link will be facing a mark to the 7 oclock position on the crankahaft gear. Everything is done with the piston at TDC no 1 cylinder so get it there before you put the cam shafts in position or you will bend valves. Crank shaft gear is not keyed to the crank shaft. there are dots on the right hand balancer shaft gears and these dots will be as the 2 dots on adjacent teeth either side of a dot on the meshing gear. I suppose that is all as clear as mud but if you got this far then you will see the marks and marked links on the chains

Need timing chain marks for 02 dodge 4.7


There are no " Marks" to line up. There is a h whole set of alignments you have to do.
The engine needs to be at TDC. there are colored links on both the secondary timing chains that align with A. the holes on the Idler sprocket, 4 O'clock & 8 O'clock. and B. with the cam sprockets having the V8 at the top of both cams the colored chain link aligns with the R or L of the corresponding Right or Left cam. This all needs to be done in proper order at maintain proper valve timing. failure to do so will end up with possible valve to piston damage. It is better to get the book on the truck for $25.00 rather than do hundreds in damage. You can even get DIY subscriptions online delivered right to your computer instantly for about $20.00
Sorry I type way too slow and would take me all night to tell you exactly how to do it.
But if you are engine savvy and have good knowledge as to slack on the timing chain goes on the return side of the chain to cam from crank, (tensioner side) reset your tensioner & pin before you install the chain tensioner. you can do it.

I am timing a 2005 Cadillac STS 4.6 northstar went by gm info and re timed 3 times with bad results. I had all my marks lined up but I think I am messing up with the flats on the cams where do they need to...


the crank has to be on tdc for the piston position
on the right hand bank ( left side looking at the front of the engine , the top most cam is the inlet cam and the letters RI will be at the 9 oclock position on the top side of the shaft boss on the cam gear the lower cam gear will have the letters re in the same position
on the other bank the top cam gear will have li at the 3 oclock position and the lower cam gear will have re in the same position
use the position as 90 degrees to the head and taken through the cam shaft center

Need tiing diagram for 2005 5.4l engine


If your talking about the cam timing, then it's a bit complicated. There are two timing chains and the marks depend on having chains with different colored links to line them all up.

The crankshaft should be where the key way is at about the 270 degree mark and the crank gear with the timing mark is at the bottom. the D/S chain goes on first and there should be a machined notch that will be "up". the raised line will be down. The chain goes on with the SINGLE colored link at the crank mark and the notch between the TWO links. The P/S chain goes the same way but the cam gear only has the one notch on it. Here is a picture:

Timing marks


this is an easy one to time. the timing mark for the crank is 0 degrees-do not attempt to tum crank if cam timing is out. there is no distributor on this engine-it is advanced with your intake camshaft. The intake camshaft is the only tricky part to time. Be very careful because at 2500 rpm this cam actually moves forward via cam advance solenoid. It will hit your crank if not timed properly! so with your crank at o degrees-camshafts out of head if you need to turn engine to line up crank-on the exhaust cam(your left)behind the gear(on flange) there will be a hole big enough to put a small punch in that will line up with the top of the deck surface on the outer side(to the left). Now on your intake cam(your right) it will be just the opposite. the hole on the back side of the gear flange will line up on the right with the to p the deck surface. once in line hold intake cam and turn the gear(advancer) all the way to the right)-very important. You will have to start with you intake(put chain on) then line up your exhaust and install timing chain tensioner. always turn engine 360 degrees and recheck before you proceed. At least your at top dead center and you can visually see the lobes on both cams mostly straight up. hope I have been helpful.

Yes, there are two timing marks, one on the crank gear, and one on the cam gear. The crank gear mark needs to be at the top, and the cam gear mark needs to be at the bottom (lined up w. one another).
