SOURCE: I took out the cylinder head for reconditioning after the car overheated ,then resetting valve timing is my problem now?

Is number 1 on tdcc or tdci? It should be tdcc with both number one cylinder valves closed as they would be on number one tdcc. I have no idea why you would be rocking number 5 cylinder valves with number one on tdcc or otherwise. The valve and ignition timing needs to be set correct on number one tdcc and then all others will fall into their correct timing also.

How do I change timing chain on Toyota corolla 1.6 4 cylinder. How do I find top dead center for cylinder number one


Basically, #1 piston should be all the way up, with the intake valve past opening and now closed and the exhaust valve just about to start opening. Buy a cheap shop manual to insure you get this correct or you will be very sorry.

I have a 2003 mazda 6 with 2.3 i think it might be out of time but i cant find the timing marks on the pulleys


Sir. The only other way to know your on no one cylinder top dead center is to take the numbers of the firing order,
White them down with the first 3 in one colum and the second three firing numbers in a colum next to the first three. The numbers across from each other are called " mating cylinders".
If #1 cylinder is ( example ) next to #6 on your paper, then those two are mating cylinders. Meaning one ( with valve cover/s off) will , when engine in turned over slowly, will be on valve overlap, while its mating cylinder is on
Top Dead Center to fire. In valve overlap, when the motor is turned slowly one way, the exhaust valve will open and when engine is slowly turned the other way, the intake valve starts to open. At that point when either exhaust or intake valve is moving on #6 cylinder valve trane, #1 is at top dead center which will be not even 180degrees out, but top dead center on #1 cylinder. Now your at the firing point of #1, which will coincide with the rotor pointing at #1 plug wire on the distributor cap. In essence, static ( not
engine running ) the rotor bug should be about 17 degrees early in the cap. This makes up for slack in any timing chain and gear slack between the distributor gear to cam gear. This when running put you about 4-6 degrees advanced. Computor models will time it for itself. See example below.
1 - 6
5 - 2
3 - 4
If your timing order is 153624 then use the chart. As you list your order on paper, remember one mating number is firing and it's mating cylinder is on valve overlap. 180 deg out would be
#1 valves " rocking " and no 6 is on compression. When a cylinder is on the compression stroke, valves will not move. ( both closed ). So, write down your timing order, v6 or inline 6, or 4 cyl or 8 cylinder. It don't matter. If you look at the manifold , it will give the timing order, maybe on the head or Internet. Two columns, walla.
Hope that helps get you to true #1 top dead center. This system is the only true way, along with a cardboard timing wheel for the crank if needed , to adjust valves, lifters and know where the engine is at all times.
Hope that helps. Sorry for the detail, engines are really very simple, once you " get the picture ". Don't make it to difficult. Crank turns two times to one revolution of the cam.

Setting valve clearances


360 with hydraulic lifters, the crankshaft wit a ratchet and socket to get each valve closed. When lifter is at bottom turn the valve adjuster out to where you have free movement then turn adjuster till the rocker arm touches the lifter, then turn the adjuster in three quarters of a turn, and that valve is adjusted. No other clearance is required on hydraulic lifters. Do this with each valve in turn as each piston comes to top dead center using the firing order as a guide. When #1 piston is up to top dead center, both valves are closed. Adjust intake and exhaust at this time. Then the next in the firing order. The firing order can be found on the intake as is each cylinder marked with it's number. If it were a Chevy small block, for example only, firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. I would bring # 1 cylinder up to top dead center on compression stroke by removing that spark plug and stick my finger in the hole and crank the engine till I felt my finger being pushed away with compression, then bring that piston up till the timing mark was on the "0" of the timing tab at drivers side of the harmonic balancer on the crank. Adjust both valves on #1 cylinder and then turn the crank until both valves of #8 cylinder were free moving at the rocker. Then to the next in order of fire. I would turn each adjuster out at least one full turn before starting this procedure, then adjust them in order of firing starting with #1. It isn't hard, just takes time to do it right.

How do you know which valves should be open/ closed (BTDC/ATDC) on which cylinder in the head of a 4g64 sohc head to put the head in time with the crank


All of the valves in the number one cylinders should be closed when the engine marks line up at TDC (top dead center). BTDC= before top dead center, ATDC = after top dead center.

Find tdc and adjust valves on a 325 i


With the tappet cover off, rotate the engine in the normal direction of rotation until you see #4 cylinder valves rock - open/close in succession. This will be TDC on #1 - set the valve clearances. Turn the engine until your see #2 valves rock, set #5 valves, turn the engine till #6 valves rock, set # 3 valves, turn the engine until #3 valves rock, set # 6 valves, turn engine till #5 valves rock, set # 2 valves, turn engine till #1 valves rock, set # 4 valves. Once you have located #1 TDC (the second mark in the pulley should be lined up with the cover mark), it is only 60 deg. to get to the next cylinder to set. If you accidentally go past the setting point, go back and approach the setting point again in the direction of engine rotation. When you come to setting # 6 the TDC marks should be aligned again.

I changed the water pump on a 2003 galant and now it wont start I took timing belt off did i mess up the timing


If you have already turned it over you may need to give it a compression check to make sure you did not bend your valves. Set your timing mark to top dead center and take off your upper belt cover. Check the cam mark to the timing mark (TDC) on the lower cover. That will tell you if the belt is on correctly. If the timing marks check out you may have just flooded the motor . New plugs will assist in starting the motor if they are just WET fouled.

IS SETTING THE TIMING AS SIMPLE AS GETTING THE TIMING MARKS LINED UP? IF SO I HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE APPRECIATED


You have to make sure the engine is at top dead center on number one cylinder (all valves closed on number one cylinder) - if distributor installed check that #1 is on firing position so is not on exhaust stroke and or remove spark plug and put plastic straw in hole to see if piston is at TDC (top dead center) ready to fire on compression stroke.
After setting timing always rotate engine 4 times to bring back to same location and that nothing like pistons bump into valves etc. and make sure that timing marks are at the location. If you install backwards on some engines the oil pump will not be in line to accept oil and will not get oil pressure - I believe this true of 3.1 chev or was it 3.8 I messed up on, lol

My timing belt broke and I have purchased a new one; however, I need to know how to set the correct timing for a 2001 Volvo S60 witha 2.4L engine?


you need a service manual, if you don't have one i fear that you maybe in over your head-either timing belts or chians there are always timing marks which indicate cylinder id and tdc, basically top dead center of cylinder #1 matched to camshaft position of intake and exhaust valves inclosed position (cam lobes off valves and valve springs relaxed to full height-not compressed as that indicates valves are still open or in overlap-you must know you four strokes and consider which stroke will be required) anyways if your belt broke you may have larger problems than lacking a service manual as most engines today are interferance which means that it the valve timing is incorrect you could be tagging valves against the pistons, and if your belt broke you may have already done so-check your valves as they maybe bent and in this case you require a head job as well.
