That is a nice diagram of a single overhead cam engine that c17hydro posted, i believe the question is 4 a DOHC, which stands 4 Dual Over Head Cam engine. the dohc engine requires a little more work and two special tools to do the job properly... i highly recommend purchasing a timing belt kit when replacing the belt... u will need 2 know if the car was manufactured b4 march of 1999, this info is on a sticker inside the driver side door jam. open the kit in the store, the instructions will tell the the name of the two special tools u need to do the job properly... FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO THE LETTER, if u don't, u will likely end up doing the job again very soon!!!

I have an Isuzu kb 350 and has a broken timing belt and now is failing to start because of not sure of piston position in relation to dual camshafts


be VERY careful! Most engines are interference motors and a bust timing belt results in catastrophic failure when the valves contact the pistons because they are out of sync!

Timing belts usually come with markings - you would almost certainly find the compression TDC for cylinder 1 (not exhaust TDC - if the air blows thru plug hole when piston is rising its compression - if the air is NOT blowing out plug hole its exhaust tdc - rotate once more).

Now you will have to find the timing marks on the camshaft(s) and set according to the manual.

Put on a new timing belt now it wont start


I need some clarification. Did you replace the belt because it broke? If so you may need to replace the head. The problem is if the belt breaks when your moving it usually damages the head and thus needs to be replaced.

Cannot find timing mark on crank for a 1998 ford contour 2.0 DOHC 4door car any idea where to find?


Ford does not provide timing marks on this engine. There are special tools required to set timing correctly on this engine. However, it's been my experience that when the woodruff key is pointing straight up, you are at Top Dead Center (TDC) on cylinders 1 and 4.
In addition, you can remove the spark plug on the #1 cylinder and insert a long screwdriver into the hole so it contacts the cylinder. You can rotate the crankshaft until the screwdriver reaches the highest point and come extremely close to TDC in this fashion.
Note: you should set the camshaft timing with the cranshaft NOT at TDC because this is an interference engine, and you can damage valves if they contact the pistons. Therefore, set the crankshaft to TDC, then back off it a little to set the cam timing. When the cams are where you want them, bring the crank back to TDC for #1 and install the belt.
Hope this helps!!

Timing belt snapped


hi from uk the cambelt timing marks for accent 1.3/1.5 petrol are as follows= the cam cog has a hole drilling between the outer toothed and the central securing bolt this hole at TDC number 1 cyl is at top central and lines up with a V cut in the cyl head at rear of cog ? the crank cog at TDC number 1 cyl is a pop mark on both the cog and on thefront face of engine quite noticable ! these line up and are at approx 12 -30 pm when viewed fit new belt from crankcog in anticlockwise ie crank then cam then tensioner HOWEVER! if you are considering just replacing belt and tensioner ? be warned this engine is an interferance engine that is to say if belt fails whilst driving there may/will most probably be damage to the valves (bent) due to contact with pistons so would advise caution and suggest compression test all cyls after fitting new belt and tensioner and before rebuild completely once valves have bent they will not contact pistons again but you will have serious missfire/s and probably back fire up inlet manifold coupled with failing to start if engine is high milage ? consider removal of cyl head and check? de coke and replace damaged or best all valves then engine will have improved performance and more milesin future hope this helps

I know just enough about car mechanics to be dangerous. I replaced the water pump and put the timing belt back on just the way it came off and it must have slippied a tooth. I need to know how to reset all...


TDC can be found by re-installing the cover and referencing the "0" mark on the timing scale with the hash mark on the pulley. If there isn't one, your other option is to make a reference mark on the pulley and a reference mark in the same place on a fixed immovable part of the block with the #1 piston near the top of it's bore. Place a long bolt of the exact thread size as the sparkplug into the plug hole, 'till it touches the piston, then back it off a few turns. Then turn the engine by hand in one direction, till it stops. Make a mark at the block reference position on the pulley. Then again by hand, turn backwards till it agian stops. Make another mark. Exactly half way between the two marks you made on the pulley is absolute TDC.Turn the crank so that the halfway mark on the pulley is aligned with your block reference. The very first mark you made on the pulley is just so you can return to that position if necessary. Once TDC has been established Do not turn the engine at all. Don't forget to remove bolt in plug hole. Use your manual to find correct index mark for camshaft gear(s) and any other pulleys.
Not sure what is meant by "holes aligning" on tensioner. Once "free" retainer holes cant remain aligned. Most important is that the tensioner is firmly against the belt and doing it's job. I always turn the engine twice, sometimes four times, back to tdc and re-check cam position.and to verify that valves are not hitting pistons. (turn by hand only with no plugs in the engine) After position is verified as correct, put it together.
