2 questions come to mind has the new sprocket got the same pitch ( distance between teeth ) as the crank shaft sprocket as this will make the chain jump out after a few degrees of movement. A quick check is to wrap the chain around the sprocket and see if there are links that do not sit fully around the teeth. There are different pitches for teeth and chains ( BA-- AM and metric)

You need to recode the alarm. You have to see if it's an aftermarket or factory alarm?

Well, I certainly cannot help you locate the timing marks, but I should be able to point you in the right direction.
The first thing you will want to look for is a triangle "tooth" or some form of pointing device on the crank wheel. If you find that, then you will know where your timing marks are.
If your vehicle is anything like my old Nissan, you will not be this lucky. The way I found mine was to take a non abrasive cloth and a cleaning agent(Bug and Tar remover works amazingly) and clean off everything around the crank wheel. Once you have methodically done that, use a white non permanent marker all the way round your crank wheel and beside it, then re-attach everything, and remove your spark plugs.
Once your spark plugs are removed, put cylinder one's spark plug into the plug wire to create a connection (its easier this way) and have a buddy crank the car while you aim your timing gun at the white marker you painted with. This worked for be because the timing light gave a sharp contrast to the area and I was able to discern the markers. Make dammed sure you don't have your spark plugs in if you try this method. Bad things happen when you compress all that fuel for a while then that baby fires up.

When it jumped timing, it's possible that the piston's hit the valves and they may be bent. Have a compression test done and see if you have cyclinder pressure.

Timing belt jump

Remove the t belt and reinstall it. Sounds like you were a half a tooth of on the cams wich would put you a tooth off on the crank. A lack of power makes sense with bad cam timing a s could,very well throw a miss. The misfire did not cause timing to jump

On 2002 ford explorer,4.6-v-8, when i was changing timing chain guides and adjusters the chains jumped teeth on the crankshaft. The manual says the left camshaft timing mark should be approx. @ 11:oo & the...

Look for some Youtube videos on this repair. If I remember correctly the links on this chain have different color metal for the spots that the cam tooth goes against. When each side is in the proper tooth the right and left colored links will be on the cam mark and the crank mark should be on the timing TDC mark. Sounds like the slack you describe is wrong and a tooth is off because the tensioner is allowing slack.. You need to slip a tooth one way or the other until the tensioner has room to be in a neutral position.

My 1990 Toyota pickup 4x4 3.0 5spd failed its smog test in Ca. The shop said that the timing was set at 5 degrees after. How do I set the timing to the correct setting?

there is a small black check connector next to the big black fuse block that has coded pins that you can jump to check different systems.but to check the timing you will need a jumper wire and jump pins te1 and e1 together. the location for the pins that you need to jump are located on the inside of the lid of the small check connector.start the truck and let it warm up and set the idle to around 800rpm and hook your timing light up to the battery and the #1 plug wire and put your jumper wire in. the engine speed should slow down a little and you should also be able to see the timing mark move with the timing light when you connect and disconnect the jumper wire.once you have everything hooked up loosen the dist. bolt and set the time to 10 degrees btdc at idle.tighten the dist. and unhook everything and and see how it runs.if not running to good the timing belt could be stretched or it could have jumped a tooth.the throttle position sensor can also make the timing to crazy things.....i hope this will help you let me and fixya know and a thumbs up if i did my job........if you have anymore questions let me know i have been working on toyota and lexus for 25 yrs......good luck.......

Pulling check engine codes on 1984 el camino

Locate your aldl connector under dash near steering column. It should have 12 pin connector. Older cars had 8 pin connector. You can do either one. On 12 pin connector jump the last 2 pins, on top row, in connector with paperclip or wire. Turn on ignition till check engine light turns on. Count & write down how many times it flashes. It will flash for example 3 times stop then 1 time = 31 code. In older 8 pin connector jump the 2nd & 4th pins on top.

Dodge Grand Caravan 2005 P0016 code

Im assuming it is an engine that uses a timing belt. It sounds like the belt has jumped 1 tooth. if it only jumped 1 tooth than the computer will compesate the timing so it is possible the sensors will say they are ok. If it is a motor that uses a chain than it problaly needs a new gear/chain set.

I was told that the car jumped time and i need to no how to set it?

if you have Dual Over Head Cams you have to set both to 12 o clock make sure your num#1 piston is on top dead center in order for your tiiming to be right, another thing is that if your old belt sliped there could be a chance that valve damage might of occured or may be not since most honda engine are interference engines

2.2 no spark, but getting fuel.

You need to remove the upper timing belt cover and make sure that your timing belt didn't jump. All it takes is the belt to jump one tooth on the sprocket to create this problem. One tooth equals 17 degrees of timing. Make sure that you can hear the fuel pump come on as well when the key is in the "on" position.
