SOURCE: wrong timing settings

10 degrees but not adjustable, computer adjusts as needed, unless it's a mile out. Did you have distributor out or something?

SOURCE: 2006 Dodge Caravan Engine Light Blinks 10 Times & wont start

It sounds like your starter needs cleaned or replaced. The poping noise could be the actuator not engaging right. As for the engine light, it could be just a coincidence.

On a dodge 4.7 liter Are the can shaft timing marks supposed to stay aligned as long as the engine is on top dead center. After setting timing properly marks are off within 5 minutes of running. ?????

If the engine wont run then it might be an issue. The engine most likely has CVVT (variable valve timing) and it wont appear to be on time.

2006 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner, 2WD, 4.0L V6, 5-speed Automatic has a severe vibration from the speed of 20 mph to 50 mph, then the vibration will slightly deminish.

Is it the engine vibrating or the car? If its the car itself it sounds like u need to have the tires checked & balanced.

At what degree angle would I set my timing mark for Suzuki Vitara 16v engine

old post.

the answer is this in USA, are you>?
open hood, look up ,behold the white sticker, and is there.
all suz. have a timing freeze jumper, starting in newer years its a factory only scan tool setting.
on yours, must 1.6L , the liters tell me what engine not valve count.
to set timing, you need a strobe light , got one?
1: hot motor.
2; idle rpm perfect. not too low, or high.
4: timing freeze, enabled.
5: set timing with strobe , using under hood sticker data.

97 K1500 5.7 liter Engine quit running. I checked timing, spark & fuel. All good but high mileage made me think wear on timing chain. I replaced timing gears, chain & distributor drive gear. I put...

need to get back to basics, first check engine compression-you say that it's high mileage, so I'd start there-If you have uniform compression across the board, move on to fuel pressure at the top rail-if that is good, with spark it has to run, but make sure your distributor is properly installed (not out 180 degrees).

I need to now how set the timing to my 94 2.6 isuzu amgo

You need a timing light to do this.
The 2.6 liter Isuzu engine timing specs say set to 12 degrees BTDC @ 900 rpms. **Make sure your engine is warmed up when you are checking and/or adjusting the timing.**
Take a piece of chalk and search for and then mark the notch on your crank pulley (bottom most pulley).
Also mark the 12 degree spot on the numbered timing tag right next to the pulley.
Connect your timing light power terminals to your battery.
Then connect the timing light's timing lead to the number 1 cylinder spark plug wire. The number 1 cylinder is the one closest to the front of the car. Find the plug wire going to this spark plug and connect your timing light lead to this plug wire.
**Pay special care to prevent these wires from becoming entangled in your running engine, when the time comes to run the engine.**
If timing needs to be adjusted, you will adjust it by turning the distributor (by hand) when the engine is running. But first check the timing marks without loosening the distributor hold down bolt, in case it does not need adjusting.
**When you squeeze the timing gun trigger, it will light; and when this happens it is telling you that at that instant the number 1 cylinder has fired.
Your timing is set correctly if, when you squeeze the timing gun trigger, engine running, aimed at bottom pulley area (your chalk marks), the timing marks you highlighted with chalk are aligned when the gun light flashes. If they are not aligned precisely, you can align them by turning the distributor-do this when engine is running, still checking the timing flashes.

**If the timing marks are sporadic and very difficult to align, it means that there is slack in the timing chain/belt and this should be remedied.**
It is critical when checking timing that you disconnect the VSV (vacuum switching valve). You should refer to your vacuum hose routing chart on your vehicle to locate yours. Sometimes they are labeled on the actual part. Usually they are connected by hoses to the EGR valve.

Hope this helps.

Timing on a 1990 Wrangler with a 4.2 liter

4.2L 6-Cylinder

1. Set parking brake. Shift automatic transmission to Park or manual transmission to Neutral. With A/C off, start engine and attain normal operating temperature.

2. With ignition OFF, connect an ignition timing light and a calibrated, expanded-scale tachometer.

3. Disconnect 4 " and 10 " Hg (CEC System) vacuum switch assembly wire connector (located at top of valve cover). Disconnect and plug distributor vacuum advance hose.

4. Start engine, increase engine speed to 1600 RPM and check ignition timing. Adjust timing to specification listed on Emission Control Information label (if necessary). Tighten distributor hold-down clamp and recheck ignition timing.

5. Turn engine off and remove timing light and tachometer. Connect No. 1 spark plug lead, if disconnected. Unplug and connect distributor vacuum advance hose. Connect vacuum switch assembly wire connector.

NOTE: If timing light has an adjustable advance control feature, turn control to OFF position.

Timing is set per the emissions tag under hood.

How do i install a water pump on a pontiac grand am?

if you are talking about a 2.4 liter engine (4 cylinder) then this is a hard job for a novice. on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 beiing hardest , i would give it a 8.5. first take off the exhaust. second take off the exhaust manifold.. loosen backside of water pump mount. i think there are 5 bolts hodling it to the engine ( do not try to pry pump out of back of timing chain hole). here's where it starts getting tricky. unbolt motor mounts. take off serpentine belt. take large crow bar and push engine up and put 2x4 block under engine to hold in place. take off harmonic balancer (need 300 lbs torque, buy pneumatic torque gun at harbor freight for about 40 bucks). take off timing chain cover plate. take off timing chain tensioner. lift timing chain up over water pump sprocket and remove water pump. reverse to re-assemble. i can do this all in about 4 hours. by the way change out thermostat why you are at it. make sure you do not put thermostat back in upside down. this procedure is for the 2.4 liter engine. a great engine made by screwed up pontiac engineers during a beer bash. do not attempt unless you have the time, tools and patience.
