On the 2.4liter four cylinder the marks on the camshafts are between the two cam sprockets. The left (exhaust) cam mark is the notch directly to the right of the UP mark and for the right (intake) cam the notch is directly to the left of the 2.4 FRONT mark. Line those two mark up with each other. The crankshaft mark is located on the sprocket. It is a triangle pointing upwards. You align that mark with the downward facing triangle located on the engine plate directly behind the crankshaft gear.

Correct position of the camshafts and cranksharfts for timing of my 99 saturn SL2

the cam shaft sprockets have marks on them that say" front" and have a hole,, the marks should be up and level on the cams,one cam says in on it and thats intake and one says ex on it and thats exhaust cam,,,the sprockets on the cams have a little cirlce at one of the teeth on each cam these face up,,and line up with the different color links on the timming chain,,,the crank sprocket only goes on one way due to the keyway the the key way faces at the 12 clock position and you will see a mark at the same 12 position on the engine block,, there is also a different colored link for the timing mark on the cranksprocket ,actually its two colored links in a row and they go at the 6 clock position on the crank,,,then put the guides on and the tensioner and set the tension

I need to know were the timming mark are on a 99 ford esort

On the Camshaft Pulley and Crank Pulley. TDC is with both in 12 of the clock position, aligned with the Markers. Take care when releasing the tensioner, that these positions have not been disturbed during Installation, LOOK, because a fraction out will cause malfunction of the Ignition timing through the Camshaft Sensor.

Timing belt

There definitely is a mark. I'm tearing down a 99 Beetle now. The mark is on the center of one of the teeth and runs the length of the tooth.

You'll need to use a breaker bar and 18mm socket to rotate the camshaft. Use a pressure gauge to determine top dead center then nudge the gear until the mark aligns with the arrow on the timing belt cover behind the gear (the plastic one closest to the manifold). The alignment arrow is right around the 11 o clock position when facing the cam gear.

My timing belt broke on my '99 Ford Escort ZX2. Please tell my husband how to replace it. Than k you

Timing Belt
1.8L Engine
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the timing belt covers.
Rotate the crankshaft and align the timing marks located on the camshaft pulleys and the seal plate.
Remove the crankshaft pulley and hub.
If the timing belt is to be reused, mark an arrow on the belt to indicate its rotational direction to enable correct re-installation.
Loosen the timing belt tensioner lockbolt and remove the timing belt.
To install:
Temporarily secure the timing belt tensioner in the far left position with the spring fully extended, then tighten the lockbolt.
Make sure the timing marks on the timing belt pulley (crankshaft sprocket) and the engine block (oil pump housing) are aligned.
Make sure the timing marks on the camshaft pulleys and the seal plate are aligned.
Install the timing belt.
Loosen the tensioner lockbolt. Using a suitable prying tool, position the timing belt tensioner so the timing belt is taut, then tighten the tensioner lockbolt.
Turn the crankshaft two turns clockwise and align the timing belt pulley mark with the mark on the engine block.
Fig. 1: Timing marks are located on the camshaft pulleys as shown — 1.8L engines

Fig. 2: Make sure that the crankshaft sprocket (timing belt pulley) and oil pump timing marks are aligned — 1.8L engines

Fig. 3: Align the timing belt pulley mark with the tension set mark, at approximately the 10 o'clock position — 1.8L engines

Fig. 4: Check the timing belt deflection at the location shown — 1.8L engines
