The tdc needs to be on (compression stroke)you can use a compression gauge to judge compression stroke.or the old school way I do is take out #1 plug and put finger over plug hole in head,let someone bump the starter until the compression blows your finger away from hole. Roll engine by hand.(socket and breaker bar on crank bolt if needed) slowly clockwise to Line up marks. Install distributer with button pointing toward #1 prong in cap.

This is the tricky part... as I mentioned in my solution, When you install the distributor, the shaft will turn because of the gears. You are going to have to pull the distributor just enough so that the gears aren't meshing together and turn the shaft.take notice of which way the shaft turns when you remove the distributor. Once the gears aren't meshing, turn the shaft to the #1 position and go a little past the #1 position in the opposite way that the shaft turned.install the distributor and see where the rotor sits then.if it is still not in the right place, pull it again and go one gear tooth at a time until the rotor lines up with the #1 position. Hope this helps. If you still need more info or clarification, don't hesitate to ask.

Turn crank so that timing mark on front pulley is at 0 degrees.
Remove the timing cover and you should see a mark for the cam to line up with.
You want the cam lobes on No.1 cylinder to be pointing away from the followers wether they be rockers above cam or buckets below. This will be the compression stroke.
Once the cam timing is set you can recheck the distributor. It should point to No.1.

Firing order 1-3-4-2 No1 nearest the grille. Check that No1 cyl is a tdc on the timing mark on the front pulley, remove the distributor cap and see where the rotor is pointing, the plug lead nearest the rotor should be No1

Need to know how to time and restab a distributor


Bring cyl #1 up to top dead on the compression stroke. Line up crank pulley timing mark up to zero on the timing indicator. Line up the rotor on the distributor to point to #1 on the rotor cap. Put distributor in slowly making sure you pick up the oil pump shaft while engaging the cam gear. If the oil pump shaft doesn't doesn't line up the distributor will not drop all the way in. Now but mount bolt back in but do not tighten. Hook up timing lite, start engine and move distributor to line up the correct timing mark then tighten distributor mount bolt.

Z24 engine specs


place the timing mark on the crank pulley at the correct ignition timing mark (10 degrees advanced). Place in the distributor so that the rotor button points to no1 cylinder in the cap. when fitted in properly turn the distributor so that the points are just opening. ( you can get this by turning on the ignition and when you see the points spark or hear a spark click then lock the distributor up at that point . Use a timing light for final set. If it wont start you got it on 180 degrees out then just move the HT wires around 180 degrees. If you have a transistorized ignition then when the point of the cam star is directly opposite the magnet point that is the same as the points.

MY ALTIMA (2002 4 CYL) SHOWS ON THE SCANER 4*B ON BASE TIMING, THE TIMING CHAIN IS WELL INSTALLED ACCORDING TO THE MARKS, CAN SOMEONE GIVE ME AN ADVICE?


IGNITION TIMING IS 13 - 17 DEGREES BTDC AT 650 - 750 RPMS. YOU NEED A TIMING LIGHT.TO SET TIMING FIRST CHECK FOR ANY TROUBLES.MAKE SURE YOU HAVE NO CODES. NOW TO SET TIMING.APPLY PARKING BRAKE AND BE SURE THAT THE CAR IS IN PARK.START AND RUN ENGINE UNTIL IT GET OPERATING TEMPERATURE.RUN THE ENGINE ABOUT 2000 RPM FOR 2 MINUTES UNDER NO LOAD,TURN OFF ALL ELECTRICAL LOADS, DISCONNECT THE THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR,BE SURE THE ENGINE SPEED IS 700 - 800 RPM. REV THE ENGINE 2 OR 3 TIMES TO 2000 - 3000 RPM AND RETURN THE ENGINE TO IDLE SPEED.CONNECT A TIMING LIGHT TO THE NUMBER 1 CYLINDER SPARK PLUG WIRE AT THE DISTRIBUTOR END AND CHECK THE IGNITION TIMING BE SURE THAT THE TIMING POINTER IS POINTING TO THE 15 BTDC MARK ON THE CRANKSHAFT PULLEY,EACH NOTCH ON THE CRANKSHAFT PULLEY REPRESENT 5 DEGREES. IF THE TIMING IS NOT WITH IN THE SPECIFICATION, LOOSEN THE DISTRIBUTOR MOUNTING BOLT AND ADJUST THE DISTRIBUTOR UNTIL THE TIMING IS AT PROPER SPECIFICATION. TIGHTEN THE DISTRIBUTOR MOUNTING BOLT TO 10 - 12 FT LBS,STOP THE ENGINE AND CONNECT THE THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR.

How do you m,ake sure that the camshafts in a 16 valve overhead cam in kia rio are timed correct i had them out and not sure hot they go , both pin up both pins down or 1 of each thanks


you will need a special tool to lock cams together when refitting the belt ,look at the cam lobes and this will tell you both valves on no1 will be closed on TDC no1 the lobes will point up and outwards with the exhaust getting ready to open next ,then look for the marks as i honestly cannot remember where they are as when i do any engine i turnt to TDC no1 and mark with white paint ,but twin cams need a special funny sort of tool to hold then in place ,if you dont have this tool then use a couple of pairs of molegrips WHATEVER YOU DO MAKE SURE YOU TURN ENGINE OVER BY HAND 360? to ensure valves are not hitting the pistons

Need to know how to set the timing on a 1990 honda accord ex


Pop out the spark plug in number 1 cylinder. Drop a long 1/4" drive extension in the cylinder. Turn the crankshaft until the timing mark on the crank pulley meets "0" and the extension is at it's highest point of travel. This is your correct crank position for timing. Pop the cover off and find the indentation or arrow on the outside front of the cam sprocket and align it with the corresponding mark on the head or cam cap. If you're only talking about using a timing light, then lossen the distributor bolt at it's base and turn the distributor until the mark is at 0. Engine must be at normal operating temp.

I have a 1987 pontiac fiero and i took the spark plug wires off the distributor and now i don't know where they go.


the firing order on 99% of 4 cylinder engines is 1,3,4,2. look on the distributor (dist) cap and see if it has any marks like a line or a #1 by on e of the plug wire towers. start with that one and then go in the direction the distributor rotor turns. attach wires one by one in the order 1,3,4,2 . to find the direction of rotation take the cap of the distributor and have a friend crank engine for 10 sec. no1 cylinder is in front of engine, i think it is on the right side on the Fiero, where the belts are. if no markings on the dist. cap remove no1 plug and get ti to the top on the compresion stroke ( both valves closed) and see where the rotor in the dist. ends up that is your no 1. hope this helps.

How do I set the distributor on a 2000 gmc jimmy? Just changed the intake gaskets, but forgot to mark the position of the rotor.


Get the number one piston up, Take the spark plug out the first one on the drivers side.Rotate the engine until the piston reaches TDC before it starts to decend back. U can use a screw driver to put in the spark plug hole.The rotor must point towards the number one spark plug. your local library will have this infor or autozone

Put the engine at TDC compression stroke , Thats when the valves are both closed on No 1 cyl and the piston is on its compression stroke .then align all cam and crank marks. set distributor/rotor button on No 1 cylinder (rotor pointing at #1 plug wire) . rotate engine 2 revolutions and recheck all marks.

Timing belt settings


the tension setting for the belt?

or the timing marks? the timing marks differ. best set cyl. no 1 to tdc.. take out no. 1 spark plug and put sumthin long and thin down the hole.. like a long quarter drive extension.. and check to see that cyl 1 is at tdc.. then set your cam to the OT marks marked on the cam pulley and rocker cover... then you have to set the distributor also.. slacken the 13mm bolt for the dizzy clamp... you will find a line on the lip of the dizzy body.. this needs to align with the middle of rotor arm tip... (sumtimes a mark on the roror arm tip)... tension belt and your timing is set.. set your timing incorrectly and the car will run rough and not rev past 5k...
