Double posted but this time the CAM pops up.
why not read the FSM first. ? linked below.
or . log in and read.

here ill do a paste from JUST install PART chapter.
you are doing ALL THAT book free, REALLY?

  1. Using a vise, lightly compress the secondary chain tensioner piston until the piston step is flush with the tensioner body. Using a pin or suitable tool, release ratchet pawl by pulling pawl back against spring force through access hole on side of tensioner.
  2. While continuing to hold pawl back, Push ratchet device to approximately 2 mm from the tensioner body. Install Special Tool 8514 lock pin into hole on front of tensioner. Slowly open vise to transfer piston spring force to lock pin.
  3. Position primary chain tensioner over oil pump and insert bolts into lower two holes on tensioner bracket. Tighten bolts to 250 inch lbs. (28 Nm).
  4. Install right side chain tensioner arm. Install Torx®bolt. Tighten Torx®bolt to 250 inch lbs. (28 Nm). CAUTION The silver bolts retain the guides to the cylinder heads and the black bolts retain the guides to the engine block.
  5. Install the left side chain guide. Tighten the bolts to 250 inch lbs. (28 Nm).
  6. Install left side chain tensioner arm, and Torx®bolt. Tighten Torx®bolt to 250 inch lbs. (28 Nm).
  7. Install the right side chain guide. Tighten the bolts to 250 inch lbs. (28 Nm).
  8. Install both secondary chains onto the idler sprocket. Align two plated links on the secondary chains to be visible through the two lower openings on the idler sprocket (4 o'clock and 8 o'clock). Once the secondary timing chains are installed, position special tool 8429 to hold chains in place for installation.
  9. Align primary chain double plated links with the timing mark at 12 o'clock on the idler sprocket.
  10. Align the primary chain single plated link with the timing mark at 6 o'clock on the crankshaft sprocket.
  11. Lubricate idler shaft and bushings with clean engine oil. NOTE The idler sprocket must be timed to the counterbalance shaft drive gear before the idler sprocket is fully seated.
  12. Install all chains, crankshaft sprocket, and idler sprocket as an assembly . After guiding both secondary chains through the block and cylinder head openings, affix chains with a elastic strap or equivalent. This will maintain tension on chains to aid in installation. Align the timing mark on the idler sprocket gear to the timing mark on the counterbalance shaft drive gear, then seat idler sprocket fully . Before installing idler sprocket bolt, lubricate washer with oil, and tighten idler sprocket assembly retaining bolt to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm). NOTE It will be necessary to slightly rotate camshafts for sprocket installation.
  13. Align left camshaft sprocket "L" dot to plated link on chain.
  14. Align right camshaft sprocket "R" dot to plated link on chain. CAUTION Remove excess oil from the camshaft sprocket bolt. Failure to do so can result in over torque of bolt resulting in bolt failure.
  15. Remove Special Tool 8429, then attach both sprockets to camshafts. Remove excess oil from bolts, then Install sprocket bolts, but do not tighten at this time.
  16. Verify that all plated links are aligned with the marks on all sprockets and the "V6" marks on camshaft sprockets are at the 12 o'clock position. CAUTION Ensure the plate between the left secondary chain tensioner and block is correctly installed.
  17. Install both secondary chain tensioners. Tighten bolts to 250 inch lbs. (28 Nm). NOTE Left and right secondary chain tensioners are not common.
  18. Remove all locking pins from tensioners. CAUTION After pulling locking pins out of each tensioner, DO NOT manually extend the tensioner(s) ratchet. Doing so will over tension the chains, resulting in noise and/or high timing chain loads.
  19. Using Special Tool 6958, Spanner with Adaptor Pins 8346, tighten left and right . camshaft sprocket bolts to 90 ft. lbs. (122 Nm).
  20. Rotate engine two full revolutions. Verify timing marks are at the follow locations: ² primary chain idler sprocket dot is at 12 o'clock ² primary chain crankshaft sprocket dot is at 6 o'clock ² secondary chain camshaft sprockets "V6" marks are at 12 o'clock ² counter balancer shaft drive gear dot is aligned to the idler sprocket gear dot.
  21. Lubricate all three chains with engine oil.
  22. After installing all chains, it is recommended that the idler gear end play be checked. The end play must be within mm 0.004-0.010 inches (0.10-0.25). If not within specification, the idler gear must be replaced.
  23. Install timing chain cover and crankshaft damper.
  24. Install cylinder head covers. NOTE Before installing threaded plug in right cylinder head, the plug must be coated with sealant to prevent leaks.
  25. Coat the large threaded access plug with Mopar® Thread Sealant with Teflon, then install into the right cylinder head and tighten to 60 ft. lbs. (81 Nm).
  26. Install the oil fill housing.
  27. Install access plug in left cylinder head.
  28. Install power steering pump.
  29. Fill cooling system.
  30. Connect negative cable to battery.

Timing marks jeep cherockee 2005 3.7 l

what car, XJ ended in 2001
or the KJ ?
Model years 2002-07), also known as the Jeep Liberty in North America
or grand Cherokee.?

what are you doing
, we can';t guess that here?
CAM timing?
spark timing,?
the Balance shaft?
what country is this an Export jeep.

eg: , i removed my engine heads and......
eg: i removed my coil pack and did not mark the wires.

the 3.7l has no spark timing, its FIXED. by 3 ways.
so....?? what job>?

ill answer now for 3.7L 2005
our 3.7 (usa our)
COPS , that is , 6 coils over plugs. hard wired, so firing order is ECU controlled, 100%
that leaves the pulley marks, (the book shows no adjustment possible)
Ignition timing is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). No adjustment is possible.

so my guess, wild you must be fiddling cams?
are you?
the Timing CHAIN? if yes, say so
or better why not log in to
and read that, then ask questions not clear in the FSM or there.
my guess on cam
is step 11a you get stuck

The idler sprocket must be timed to the counterbalance shaft drive gear before the idler sprocket is fully seated.

When driving my 05 jeep cherockee the heat blows out warm but when stop it blows out cold

the first thing I would check is the coolant level. Top off as necessary. Then see if the no heat symptom resolves itself. If the level goes low again in a short period of time than you have a coolant leak.

You may be able to find it with a visual inspection. Other times the cooling system will need to be pressurized in order to find the leak.

If the coolant level is not low than it is possible that the heater core has become plugged. If the coolant is nasty than this could be a possibility. Back flushing the heater core may help.

Let me know what you find or if you have any questions.

How do I remove my automatic car starter from my jeep grand cherockee lardo...? I don't care if it doesn't work afterwards..

Look up underneath the drivers side where your feet go. You will see the module, all you have to do is unplug all the wiring harnasses that go to it and pull it out. Then it won't work. You can either leave all the wires where they are because that won't hurt antthing or follow them to where they are soldered in and cut them off and tape them up.
