Hey..my name is Keith..i'll try to answer your question..and the way to find TDC is to take your valve cover off..and find the valves and rocker arms to your #1 cyclinder..then ya rotate the crank til the markings on the harmonic balancer says its at TDC...then you grab the rocker arms on the valves..and if the intake valve and exhaust valve has no pressure on it..then you know you are on #1 cyclinder at TDC..if not..keep rotating the crankshaft until the #1 cyclinder valves has no pressure on them..i hope this has helped

Locate and remove spark plug on #1 cylinder, place in a compression unit or gage, turn the unit by hand until it reaches maximum pressure ,turn the motor by hand until it reaches maximum compressure on the pressure gage. You are not at TDC.

How do I know the heads are in alighnment with tdc on compression stroke


the heads are fixed in position with head studs and have nothing to do with tdc or compression stroke. You are probably referring to valve timing. explain what you are doing so that a more definite answer can be given. Are you working on the timing belt/chain ,distributor,firing order. what make of engine ,model car year etc all helps when you want help.

1987 toyota 22re. head was taken off by siomeone who did not mark or align anything. I need to know how to get it on the compression stroke.


With the head off, the bottom end doesn't know compression from exhaust from squat. The crank just keeps pushing the pistons up and down. You set the #1 cylinder at the top of travel, the mark on the pointer scale must be at zero, then when you have the head on with the camshaft sprocket on its mark, and the timing belt or chain on, you should be at TDC on the compression stroke. To verify, both valves on #1 should be closed-the camshaft lobes for #1 should be more or less pointing up-away from the valves.
See? The valve train is what determines compression stroke vs. exhaust stroke. On compression, both valves are closed. On the exhaust stroke, the exhaust valve will be open. As long as you get the camshaft sprocket on the right mark and the crank sprocket at zero-or on its mark-the timing should be right.

Step by step instructions on timing belt installation 2000 hyundai accent


Right, so you have two TDC's-the exhaust stroke and the compression stroke Top Dead Center-and both occurr when the crank hits the zero mark on the timing scale.
Always set timing with the number one cylinder at TDC on the compression stroke. How do you know which is which? If you have a distributor, the rotor will be pointing to number one cylinder tower, when at TDC of the compression stroke. If you are on the exhaust stroke's TDC, the rotor will be pointing just opposite of number one .
If you don't have a distributor, look at the valves for cylinder one under the valve cover. If at TDC of compression stroke, both valves will be closed. At TDC of exhaust stroke, the exhaust valve will be open.
You can also find the compression stroke on number one by pulling out the spark plug for number one, and either put a wrench or socket on the crank pulley and turn it clockwise, or use the starter and bump the engine over in short bumps. Put your finger or thumb over the spark plug hole and feel for the pressure to build up. As soon as you feel pressure on your finger, (if turning by hand, pressure will be slight, but you can feel it) you are on the compression stroke. Stop bumping the starter and turn the crank on around by hand until the zero mark lines up on the timing scale-TDC of compression stroke! The exhaust stroke will have no pressure build-up as the piston comes to top-because the exhaust valve is open. On the compression stroke, both valves are closed as the piston travels up the cylinder.

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.

How to install a distributer on a 2000 mazda millenia 2.5L


You'll need to rotate the engine only in a clockwise direction, to get it to TDC on the compression stroke. When the engine is on the compression stroke, both valves to that cylinder are closed completely.

You can hold your finger over the #1plug hole with the plug removed, and as the engine is turned, you will notice pressure building, use a long rubber hose or something you won't drop into the cylinder, to put into the cylinder to feel the piston as it comes up to the very top. If you go past it, rotate the crankshaft 2 full times (almost) to get back to the TDC position.

There is also a mark on the crank pulley that will tell you when you reach TDC. Identifying the compression makes sure it's on the compression stroke, not the exhaust stroke. The engine turns 2 full turns for one turn of the camshaft.

Once you have TDC on the engine, rotate the distributor in your hand, to where the rotor will be pointing at the #1 position where it would send spark to the #1 spark plug wire & plug. Install and adjust as necessary to get the best idle, then hook up your timing light to set it to the factory specs.
Good luck!

Tdc for 2005 Hyundai accent 1.6 sohc


Standing in front of the car, #1 cylinder is the farthest left. This is the one you have to get at top dead center. Remove the spark plug and insert a rod that is long, so you don't loose it in the cylinder. Then turn the crankshaft until the rod is all the way up and just starts to go down. When it starts to go down crank it back a hair , this is top dead center. Being a 4 cylinder , you don't have to worry if it is on the compression stroke. You will set the cam for this.

2002 hyundai accent DL sedan. my tension pulley


hi from uk to retime cambelt is as follows = the crank cog has a mark which lines up with corresponding mark on front of engine block mark is approx 12-30 o/clock this is TDC No 1 the the cam cog has a small drilled hole in one of the webs just below the cog teeth ? this hole has to be at 12-o/clock position and then using a small mirror if you look through this hole you will see a vertical notch on the front of block this is theTDC mark for cam you then fit belt anticlockwise from c/shaft to cam then round tensioner then release tensionor to tension belt and then lock it up torque both bolts 20 - 27Nm rotate engine manually 4 complete turns clockwise then recheck marks ok /re align ? then re assemble crank pully bolt torque is 140 -150 Nm may i just inform you? that your engine is what is known as interferance that is to say in event of c/belt failure there is more than likely valves to piston contact however this can also occure too if miss timed belt fitted and engine has tried to start ? a compression test on cylinders will confirm if this has happened or not ? 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
