There should be casting marks to indicate TDC for #1 cylinder.

SOURCE: where are the timing chain marks ona 2000 pontiac grand am

On a 2.4, there are no timing marks...There are holes in the cam gears that need to be aligned with corresponding holes in the head.
Though it's not terribly difficult to do, it must be done precisely according to instructions or valves will hit the pistons and destroy the engine. You can find instructions for this procedure in haynes and other vehicle service manuals. (too long to write out here).
Remember...this is an exact install...you cannot just get close!!!
Good luck! Post back if you need further specific instructions with any part of the job.

SOURCE: need timing marks for a 1996 pontiac grand am se 2.4 DOHC

YOU WILL SEE A HOLE IN THE CAM GEAR THAT A 3/8 BOLT WILL FIT INTO. PUT A BOLT INTO THE HOLES OF BOTH CAM GEARS. THEN LINE UP THE CRANK PULLEY KEYWAY AT ABOUT 12 O'CLOCK WITH THE MARK ON THE ENGINE BLOCK.

MAKE SURE TO COMPRESS THE CHAIN TENSIONER AND RELEASE IT WHEN THE CHAIN IS IN POSITION.

I believe you have to make your own marks before you remove the chain so you can line it back up.
I just checked on alldata and thats the only thing they showed about timing marks.

I replaced my timing chain nd tentioner on my Nissan almera 1600 16valve 2001model but the car overheat quickly


  • I would pull the timing covers and recheck the marks and make sure they are exactly where their supposed to be. Some times the tensioner needs extra help to get the marks in place. Pry on it. If they are good. Replace the thermostat. Just a note.. I replace everything in the timing area, except gears, unless the are broken. All pulleys, belts/chains, guides, and water pump, if it is in there.

I've often heard that some Pontiac engines (vintage 1980-2002) used a plastic or quiet type timing chain and sprockets. Owners of these vehicles I have talked to said that this kept them from buying...


Hi,
No one has ever used plastic gears and chains. Some of the older big block models used timing gears with nylon teeth. This is true for all manufacturers and I believe ford still uses them in some engines. The disavantage to the nylon teeth was they would wear out somewhat faster, usually in the 80K-100K range. The pontiac V6 3800 engine has had steel toothed gears from 1986 to present and considered the most reliable V6 model ever built. While it is rare to actually break a timing chain under normal driving conditions, it does happen in race applications. However, when teeth and chains wear out, rough running and high fuel consumption due to poor mechanical time is the result. 350 GM engines were recommended to replace timing sets at 80K miles for optimum performance and were notorious for chewing off teeth. The aftermarket high performance replacement sets were made of cast iron or tempered steel. Double roller chain types, while noisier, lasted longer with fewer timing relasted issues. I had a 1979 firebird for 17 years with 200K+ miles on it and it still ran like a champ, so like anything else, proper maintenance and good driving habits have a huge affect on engine component life....Mike

All that was done (entry to left), well under power, the Formula is no good. Timing was set per lable under hood and looked good, on the road no power, had to set timing approx 20 degrees prior to TDC to...


the sound of what you explained is more that the timing is 180 degrees out... that would explain the no power on the road.... it would also allow the timing marks to line up.... hope this helps

Timing chain setting for 89 Firebird


Yes, there are two timing marks, one on the crank gear, and one on the cam gear. The crank gear mark needs to be at the top, and the cam gear mark needs to be at the bottom (lined up w. one another).
