On the cranck pulley there are 2 timing spots. The first one that you want is a single notch,that is the tdc mark, the group of 3 marks are the timing marks after it is running.

There's a chance the cam and crank gears are not in line with each other. You could try placing the rotor 180 degrees from TDC and see how it does.

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.

Replaced timeing chain..truck wont start backfire through bottom of radaitor hose???


check the camshaft and the crankshaft if syncronize or the timing mark is in the right position.
check TDC if the number one piston is on top and the distributor cap is pointing the number one sparkplug cable. if not, TDC is your problem. If your don't know the setting, buy the manual book to the auto parts store, it cost you about less than $25.

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!
