I want to change timing belt for microbus 2.6 but i am not shore about the mark on the cam


We do not have micro bus here, but i can tell you that a timing component kit comes with a small book with marks and some directions, another way is to line engine up at top dead center and mark gears before removal, Note; all gears must be line up correctly or engine damage will occur. after you install the timing belt spin crank pulley 2 revolutions and all marks should line back up, if not then realign,

How do I bleed the water system on a VW Kombi microbus....at the moment I blew the head due to overheating for the 2nd time....


To bleed the cooling system effectively you will need to use a cooling system charge unit.Your local VW Commercial dealer has this tool or it can be purchased from a reputable tool dealer e.g Snap-On,Mac,Sealey etc.When used with a compressed air feed,this tool applies a vacuum to the cooling system and draws ALL the air out before replenishing the coolant (this tool uses a sealed system so no chance of air entering system).This STOPS hot spots in the clinder head and turbo

1997 nissan pathfinder timing off. I replaced water pump(behind timing belt). Timing "gears" got moved (two top ones). I don't know how to make sure everything is lined back up correctly.Any ideas?


The cam sprockets should have marks on them (dimples) that should align with marks on the rear timing cover. There should also be a similar dimple on the crankshaft timing sprocket. These will align with their respective marks when the engine is at TDC. The alignment marks are in the following locations as you look at the front of the engine: RH cam sprocket at approximately 11:00, LH cam sprocket at approx 1:00, Crankshaft timing sprocket at approx 4:00 or 5:00. IF you can't find the marks on the cover, put the marks on the sprockets in those approximate positions and set the belt by using a belt tooth count between the marks. Cam to cam should be 40 teeth between the cam marks. Between the LH sprocket and the crank mark should be 43 teeth. You can check TDC by removing your number 1 cylinder spark plug and carefully inserting a long screwdriver and watching the rise/fall as you hand crank the crankshaft into position (which is much easier with the plugs out)

Timing belt replacement problem


old timing belt stretched

you only hand turn twice

get number one cyl up on compression stroke both vales closed piston to top of stroke

put the cam with the tooth out to align marks

try again

unless you are 180 deg out should be right
