On the transmission side of the engine, you should see a cutout, or maybe a plug ontop of the transmission, you should be able to see the flywheel through this hole, and on the flywheel or torque converter you'll see a -0- or something like a marking that you'll like up in the center if it's a circle cutout, or bottom if it's a square cutout. Other option is put the timing cover back on, and then put the crank pulley back on and line the marks up on there (then remove carefully and mark w/ a white out pen or something, and continue.)

How do i check the timing marks on A TOYOTA CAMRY 2 LITER 4 CYLINDER 1995 model car ?

I have attached to where you align the notch for the cam gear. The harmonic balancer has a notch on it, which you align to the "0" on the lower cover. The belt has alignment marks on them normally crank gear is the dotted line and the cam will be the solid line. Don't reuse an old timing belt of you removed it without marking it first. You should have aligned the gears to there timing spots prior to removing the belt Be very careful if you have to rotate the cam or crank the Pistons can touch the valves and cause damage. Hope this helps.

I need a diagram of the engine timing marks for a 1995 S10 Blazer. Can anyone provide?

Hello Friend:

Yes i can tell you how to set your Timing Marks.

Your Top Gear the Cam Shaft Sprocket you want the timing Mark you'll want it to be Pointing Down .it won't be completly straight Down but Very close to it.

You'll want your Lower Sprocket (Crank Shaft) Point Upward .Until both Cam And Crank Shaft Marks Ar Directly in Line with the Other.

As Long s you Have those 2-Marks Meeting Straight Across from each Other,You will be Set t Top Dead Center.

Meaning the your number 1- Piston Should be up and on the Compression Stroke, Not on the Power Stroke but Compression.

Either Way Sir if you got em Lined up like I was talking About you'll be Fine.

This will get your Timing Gears Lined up Properly,.

Thank You Sir for Using Fixya Please let me know the Quality of my Solution by Voting for me.

Thanks Again From d_hubbs

My jetta stalls

I have seen timing issues with the 95 jetta when your crank and cam marks are off a tooth, when you reset this it will not start. Remove the harmonic balancer and the lower crank sprocket, look for the sheer pin to be missing. replace lower sprocket if sheer pin gone. when set your crank and cam marks and put timing belt on. Tip, there is a timing plug on the top of the bell housing near block, usually green, remove plug . look for mark on flywheel and on tranny. if all three line up your timed correctly. good luck.
