Remove the rocker cover and look on the ends of the cams ,their are slots and they align with the head ,i use my old spanner from my angle grinder its just about the right thickness ,lower pistons to the middle then set the cams ,make sure no1 the valves point up and outwards like a V victory sign then bring the no1 piston up to TDC ,i take the plug out and use a long thin screwdriver for this .then put the belt on

I want to do any oil and filter change on my 2006 Astra 4 door hatch it is Holden GM model AH CDx it has an ecotec 1.8l unleaded petrol engine


So what is the problem? The new filter for a Z18XE screws directly on to the front of the engine block behind the radiator, and the oil drains out of the drain plug at the base of the sump. The Z18XER only differs in that the filter sits in a round black housing visible from the top right of the engine and is requires a 32mm spanner to remove the cover. The filter is different from that on the Z18XE

I have a Opel Astra G (T3000) 2.0 16v Ecotec motor...Bad metal rattling sound developed from motor and there after in the course of driving water started spilling out from underneath the car..


Sounds like water pump has given out. If you can slacken the belt that drives it and then run engine again briefly. If the noise is gone when you have done this it will be water pump for sure.

How to set timing when you relesh tensioner and it changes the alignment postion of pullies 2000 ford ranger 2.5 l


Here is the trick. Align marks. Put the timing belt on the crank shaft pulley first, and after on the overhead cam pulley. Release tensioner and rotate the crank shaft till the timing belt makes two full circles. Try to align marks, you will be at least one tooth off. Align the crank shaft on the mark, and find out how many teeth you are off at the cam shaft pulley. Count the teeth. Remove the timing belt from cam shaft pulley only. Move cam shaft pulley in reverse according to the number of teeth you counted. Make sure the crank shaft pulley is on the mark. Mount the belt at cam shaft pulley.Rotate the belt two circles and check the marks. Repeate this procedure til after releasing the tensioner, and rotating the timing belt two full circles, the mars will be align.

Make sure the crank pulley is lined up with the top dead center mark. The make sure the crankshaft is lined up with its mark. Its easier if you can line the marks up before you take the old belt and try not to move the crank shaft are cam pulley.
