I'm not sure what you may be "doing wrong", but here is the manufacturer procedure for aligning the timing marks.

^Refer to this diagram during step 12.
046beb2.gif
^Refer to this diagram during step 13.
95add8f.gif
^Refer to this diagram for step 19.

1. Align crankshaft sprocket timing mark to the mark on oil pump housing. NOTE: Lubricate timing chain and guides with engine oil before installation.
2. Place left side primary chain sprocket onto the chain so that the timing mark is located in-between the two (plated) timing links.
3. Lower the primary chain with left side sprocket through the left cylinder head opening. NOTE: The camshaft sprockets can be allowed to float on the camshaft hub during installation.
4. Loosely position left side camshaft sprocket over camshaft hub.
5. Align timing (plated) link to the crankshaft sprocket timing mark.
6. Position primary chain onto water pump drive sprocket.
7. Align right camshaft sprocket timing mark to the timing (plated) link on the timing chain and loosely position over camshaft hub.
8. Verify that all chain timing (plated) links are properly aligned to the timing marks on all sprockets.
9. Install left side lower chain guide and tensioner arm. Tighten attaching bolts to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.). NOTE: Inspect oil ring on chain guide access plug before installing. Replace O-ring as necessary.
10. Install chain guide access plug to left side cylinder head. Tighten plug to 20 Nm (15 ft. lbs.)
11. NOTE:
To reset the primary timing chain tensioner, engine oil will first need to be purged from the tensioner.
12. Purge oil from timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
a) Place the check ball end of tensioner into the shallow end of Special Tool 8186.
b) Using hand pressure, slowly depress tensioner until oil is purged from tensioner.
13. Reset timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
a) Position cylinder plunger into the deeper end of Special Tool 8186.
b) Apply a downward force until tensioner is reset. NOTE: If oil was not first purged from the tensioner, use slight finger pressure to assist the center arm pin of Special Tool 8186 to unseat the tensioner's check ball. CAUTION: Ensure the tensioner is properly reset. The tensioner body must bottom against the top edge of Special Tool 8186. Failure to properly perform the resetting procedure may cause tensioner jamming.
14. Install the reset chain tensioner into the right cylinder head.
15. Position tensioner retaining plate and tighten bolts to 12 Nm (105 in. lbs.).
16. Starting at the right cylinder bank, insert a 3/8" square drive extension with a breaker bar into intake camshaft drive hub. Rotate camshaft until the camshaft hub aligns to the camshaft sprocket and damper attaching holes. Install the sprocket attaching bolts and tighten to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.).
17. Turn the left side camshaft by inserting a 3/8" square drive extension with a breaker bar into intake camshaft drive hub and rotate camshaft until the sprocket attaching bolts can be installed. Tighten sprocket bolts to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.).
18. Rotate engine slightly clockwise to remove timing chain slack, if necessary.
19. To arm the timing chain tensioner: Use a flat bladed pry tool to gently pry tensioner arm towards the tensioner slightly. Then, release the tensioner arm. Verify the tensioner is armed (extends).
20. Install the timing chain cover, crankshaft damper, and cylinder head covers.
21. Install camshaft position sensor and connect electrical connector.

Hope this helps!

I replaced the timing chain and sprockets, now my distributor will not line up with the 6! What should I do now?


Well , you have a problem.
I'd start again and make sure the number one piston is at top dead center, and the sprockets line up to their dots , they will be alignment marks on sprockets and the casing .
if your not sure go to local machanic and ask for help.
good luck.

I have a 98 dodge intrepid 2.7L and i had a guy come over to help me replace the water pump and timing chain. after we took the timing chain off and replaced the water pump i noticed that he rotated the...


if he just turned the cams over by hand then i doubt that he damaged anything as if a valve was open when the piston came to top dead center then it would have stopped moving.the noise isn`t uncommon because the valves springs will make some noise as they are compressed and the rockers will make some noise as they move against the cam lobe and and the valves will make some noise as the valve spring forces the valve shut.if when you aligned the cam marks and they didn`t hit the pistons and stopped you from moving the cams and all timing marks are aligned then you should be okay to start the motor.

I want to know the times for the timing chain for the 2002 nissan altima


There are 2 chains and 4 sprockets total.
Here is an image of the parts involved:
http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/277876630/timing_chain_kit/showimage.html
The most important thing to do is first pull the sparkplugs, so you can easily turn the engine over by hand.
Then set the crankshaft to TDC, (top dead center), for cylinder #1,
The crank turns half the speed of the cams, so it comes up twice. You need to put it on the one for cylinder #1. Which you can verify with the cam cover off. The cam lobes need to be away from the valves at #1, but in contact with #3.
With the cam cover off, you should be able to also see the makes on the cam sprocket. I believe they line up with the top edge of the head. But you will be able to easily figure it out with the cam cover off. The chain probably has no marks on it. And the middle idler sprocket does not matter. Only the bottom crank sprocket and 2 camshaft sprockets matter. However, you make only have a bad tensioner or slipper. But replace the whole set if you do any chain. It is not worth having to do over again.

Timing chain guide broke..jumped time and broke middle gear.


remove the #1 sparkplug place a long screwdriver in the sparkplug hole point touching the top of the piston turn the crankshaft around until the screwdriver is almost pushed out (top dead center)
check to see that the distributor rotor is pointing at the #1 sparkplug wire it must be; if not: turn the crankshaft again until it does
then turn the camshaft around until both valves above the #1 piston cylinder are closed
this is correct; now find the marks on the belt camshaft sprocket gear and, crankshaft gear aline the belt marks with the gear marks and, install the belt

Nissan navara 1986 2.4L petrol timing problem


For timing, on 1981 and later 4 cyl engines (from the Haynes manual):
1. Turn camshaft so both valves for #1 cylinder are closed, and turn the crankshaft so #1 piston is at top dead center (woodruff key should be pointing up).
2. Engage the camshaft sprocket (with stamped numbers facing out) into the timing chain, and install the chain around the crankshaft sprocket. The bright links on the chain should be aligned with the timing mark on the crankshaft sprocket (on the right side as you look at it) and with the number "2" stamped into the camshaft sprocket, which should also be on the right side as you look at it.
3. Install the camshaft sprocket onto the camshaft, aligning the camshaft dowel pin with the number "2" hole near the center of the sprocket.

For the firing order and wiring routing for the 8 plug 4 cylinder engine: (Plugs on the intake manifold side are coded "I", and on the exhaust manifold side are coded "E")

Wire to 1I should be connected to tower on the distributor facing directly to the front of the vehicle. Going counterclockwise from there, the order is (1I), 2E, 3I, 1E, 4I, 3E, 2I, and 4E.
