Did the old chain jump time or break? I think this is an "interference" engine, which means if the cain had jumped time or broke you may have internal damage--bent valves, broken pistons, etc. If the engine turns without bad noises, you might run a compression test to see if big damage exists.

Usually there is a dot on the crank gear and one on the cam gear. Crank is up and cam is down but you still need to make sure you have TDC=top dead center

Have you checked compression in those cylinders? I would bet they are low and the probably cause is bent valves from the broken timing chain.

SOURCE: Timing chain not marked truck

there should be a corresponding mark on the wheel and on the cover. what specifically is your engine? the marks on the wheel could be a punched rounded mark while on the timing belt cover the mark looks like it has been made by a hacksaw when #1 piston is on TDC youre closest to the mark. you can also crank the cam wheel to the cycle where its on ignition stage-this also is the closest to the mark

Timing marks are not lining up when turning over the eng

Timing belt or chain?
If you have chain align the dark mark of the chain to gear marks and release the tentioner . after you turn one time the mark wont match to the chain for long time.
if you have belt. the marks are on the dots on the head and block and will match every second turn on crankshaft
after you install belt/chain turn with hand ,don't start till you're sure the piston don't touch the valve .
with chain you can mark a dot on the block and head with marker to see if will come back to the same spot on same time crank and cam but is not accurate .
good luck

How to set the timing chain on a 1995 nissan maxima

There are marks on each cam gear and on the crank gear, there are pointers or marks on the engine castings right by each gear, these all have to line up perfectly, there should also be a tensioner for the chain or belt. do not attempt to start the enging if they are not lined up, it is an interference engine and will damage the valves if the engine is out of time, check a repair manual for pictures of the marks to be sure

After the engine is hot, it is very hard to start, almost like the battery is dead. When it is cold, no problems and lately, it has started to give off a slight vibration at about 45mph that lasts for only...

well it sound like timing isuse could be timing chain or you could have injector leak after you trun eng off and causing hydraulicking in till you push fuel out of cylinder hope this leads you some where but if you have timing light you can point it at timing mark and see if the make is jumping around alot or take vacuum gauge and see if its steady at18psi or so you can buy this any part store easy to use

I need a diagram to show me how to replace my timing chain on a 94 gmc cierra p/u truck 4.3l engine v 6 2 door extended cab

I don't have a diagram but here are written instructions.

I don't know how much you know about the subject so I will start at the beginning. First you have to get to it, you can pull the motor or leave it in the vehicle. Its a little harder with it in depending on the space you have in engine compartment. If your leaving the motor in, which I imagine you are, your going to have to take the front end of the vehicle apart. Remove the grill, bumper if need be, radiator, fan, water pump, harmonic balancer, you will need to buy a puller and a installer for the harmonic balancer. You can get a puller kit from harbor frieght tools for $10. You can buy the installer from Summit racing (web site) for around $30 or you can buy one that will do both the install and removal from summit for $70. Once you have removed your harmonic balancer you can remove your timing cover to expose your timing chain. Turn the motor using a socket wrench until the timing marks on the crank gear and cam gear line up. The marks are usually just white dots, you want the crank mark to be up towards the cam and the cam mark towards the crank, the marks will be up and down from each other. Once you have the marks lined up remove the bolts holding the timing chain to the cam and crank. Remove the timing chain as a whole unit with the cam and crank gear still on it. If the crank gear doesn't want to come loose use your puller on it. when you get it off just put your new gear on and line up the timing marks then put it back on as one unit. If you cant get the crank gear on all the way by hand buy a crank install tool (summit) they run about $24. While you have the thing apart it would be a good Idea to put a new timing chain on. Depending on your vehicle this would also be a good time to change your cam if need be. Its not that hard to do it just takes a while, take your time and don't force anything.
