How to set the timing with a timing light


If you are referring to the ignition timing, the you connect the timing light into the no 1 spark plug lead. Start the engine and shine the light - which should be flashing - at the front of the engine onto the harmonic balancer. You should be able to see the timing mark on the harmonic balancer, and the scale on the engine you align it to. It may help to mark the harmonic balancer with a small dot of white paint to make it more visible. Adjust the distributor so that the timing mark on the harmonic balancer aligns with the timing mark on the block that the manual tells you to use. Make sure that the idle speed is correct first. However if you have not removed the distributor, then the ignition timing should still be OK. If you are referring to the timing of the camshafts and gears, then you do not use a timing light. Most vehicles have special tools that are installed onto the camshafts and crankshaft which lock them into the correct position so that the timing is correct. If you have replaced all these parts and do not know how to set the timing of them, get help from a mechanic otherwise you will break you engine when you try to start it.

How do you set TDC?


Yes, there's timing marks on all engines. You'll find a mark on the harmonic balancer that the pullys bolt to on crankshaft. Other mark is on a tab bolted to the engine to one side of the balancer. There's a TDC mark stamped into this tab for Top Dead Center of the #1 cylinder. Place these to marks in alignment and your there.

Opel corsa WDO engine timing marks


Timing marks are always on the harmonic balancer,that;s what the pullys blot to that drive your belts.Once you've found said marks by turning the crankshaft pullys by hand,using the belt to do so,scribe said proper timing mark with a white paint pen.Match that mark with the tab on the engine block at the harmonic balancer.Pacience my friend.

Mercedes benz timing


Timing marks for any vehile,even a Mercedes,are on the harmonic balancer.The pullys that drive the belts is bolted to the crankshaft and that knotch needs to be marked with a white paint pen.Line it up with the timing tab on the block right there at the harmonic balancer.

1995 for ranger timeing and fireing ordr


your crankshaft pulley aka Main pulley is bolted on to a harmonic balancer and the balancer sits on the crankshaft get a timing gun and figure out where the mark is on the harmonic balancer and there should be a metal plate somewhere on the timing chain cover with a mark to make the that when the number 1 piston is all the way up the marks are aligned or your timing is off

What or where are the timing marks for 2002 hyandai accent 1.6


The timing marks allow the engine to be correctly timed . It depends on what you are trying to do . If you are just trying to time the engine with a timing light .Then the mark that you would look for would be on the harmonic balancer thats the lower pully that that fits over the front of the crank shaft there will be a corasponding mark on the vehicle next to the pully that has marks in degrees that you can line up with the pulley as it turns and you use a timing light attached to #1 cylinder and ground to see this alignment the light flashes as the engine turns and lights the point up at the correct time to see it . Then you adjust the disturbutor to control where the mark moves so you can make the alignment move by turning the shaft . If you are talking about timing marks on the timing chain gears then there is a dot on each gear upper and lower and they need to be aligned in the middle so the lower gear the dot or mark is at the top of the gear and the upper or cam gear is faceing down but this alignment needs to be a perfect alignment if its off by 1 tooth you will know it the vehicle will not run vary good and back fire a lot

I have a 2.3 how do i install the timing belt


Align harmonic damper mark at TDC with #1 piston at top. You'll have to remove harmonic damper on front of crank. (You can do it without removing the damper, but it's a real pain in the rear.) This WILL require an industrial strength impact wrench to break the bolt loose. Pull spark plugs. Makes last step easy and you can use a screwdriver to make sure #1 is at top. You'll see tick marks on the crank pulley, the cam pulley and the auxillary shaft pulley. These marks must line up. Use a straight edge (ruler, piece of flat metal stock, etc.) to make sure they're aligned. Pull tensioner arm back and lock it there. Install belt around pullies. Now comes the tricky part. Whne you release the tensioner, the auxillary shaft will rotate at least one tooth off of alignment. Release tension and compensate auxillary shaft postion. You want the marks aligned with the belt under tension. Now using a long wrench, rotate the engine clockwise by turning the crank balancer bolt. After 2 complete revolutions back to TDC, confirm timing mark alignment on the pullies. If they're off, redo it until they're aligned. Good luck.

Which engine? 4 cylinder (2.4 lit) or V6 (2.7 lit)? Two different procedures as well as different belts. The 4 cylinder also has a balance belt. See next image:
42e8a57.jpg
Here's the 2.7 V6 belt:

44efb27.jpg
The replacement procedure is nearly the same at the start (removing, accy drive belts, pullys, support engine & remove front engine mount, remove T.B covers, disconnect Cam Position Sensor & Crank Position Sensor connectors, etc.). When you get to this point on the V6, you also have to remove the front engine mounting bracket from the front of the engine (4 14mm bolts, also a 12mm bolt which bolts the dipstick tube to the side of it) Put crank shaft at TDC (top dead center w/ALL timing marks aligned) remove hydraulic tensioner (2 12 mm bolts), then remove the belt. You'll need to recompress the hydraulic (auto) tensioner in a vise and insert a retaining pin through the pin-holes at the top (through the tensioner piston) to keep it compressed when you reinstall it. Otherwise, you won't be able to install it. Assembly is reverse order of dissassembly. Inspect your pullys while you're in there (check for pully bearing noise, leaking grease, smooth rotation, also the water pump pully, etc.) Replace components as needed. Careful not to damage Crankshaft Position Sensor wire harness.

The 4 Cylinder is quite different. You not only change the timing belt, but also the countershaft (balance) belt, which is behind the crank position sensor blade. IMPORTANT: ALL TIMING MARKS ALIGNED BEFORE REMOVING ANYTHING) There are two (2) counter-shafts (balance shafts). one driven by the timing belt, the other by the crankshaft sprocket behind the timing belt sprocket at the front of the crankshaft.
