SOURCE: timing chain mark diagram for a 94 grand am????

Haynes lists the entire procedure for setting the position of the cams etc. Positioning of these is critical...If off by even a slight amount the valves WILL strike the pistons and destroy the engine. DO NOT use any parts made by SA Gear...They have no quality control and will deny any claim made against them. Make sure that the chain guides are in good condition and that the chain tensioner is operating properly.

Can changing my oil to a heavier oil reduce a rattling sound from the timing chain?


No that will not work and it can burn out the engine crankshaft and rod bearings. Use no heavier than 10W30W. I have seen this happen 1st hand.

I am trying to put my taiming chain back on on my 2003 x-type jaguar . how do i kno if its in timing and if i rotated the bottom pulley without one of the timing chains on will it be out of time


basic engine principles apply here ,cam timing marks are located on the end of the cam a notch or a little slot whatever you want to call it that lines up with the cam cap .piston at no1 top then inlet valve closed and been closed a short while and exhaust valve closed but moving around to open ,then look for the marks ,and if the book says no5 halfway up and no2 halfway down ignore it as its no doubt a haynes book and they are written by mechanical engineers not motor vehicle technicians .its only a jag and they are not difficult to repair

Timing marks and adjustment


The timing marks are located on the crank and cams,to get to them the fan,water pump,timing cover,and a few other things must be removed.

If you are just wanting to adjust the timing,(And the timing chains are not broken or jumped)You will do this at the distributor and you will need a timing light to do it correctly.
