Question about Holden Cars & Trucks
IF you are just trying to reset the belt at the top and have not remover the crank pulley, bring the # 1 cylinder up to Top dead center on the compression stroke,. It will read Zero degrees on the timing mark scale.
look at the cam gear closely and you will see that there are 5 spokes which support the actual gear. Look closer and you will see that one of the spokes has a small hole in it towards the outside of the gear. Position the gear to where that hole is at the 12 oclock position . NOW, if you look thorough the hole, you should should see a small notch that the hole should be centered on. If not, move the gear until you can look through the hole and the notch falls dead center. At that point in time, you have the crank ant camshaft in perfect time with each other.
When you put the belt on, make sure that the side which is slack is the tensioner side. You should be able to slip the belt on, matching the teeth with the teeth on the gears to where one side is fairly tight and you can not roll the cam counter clockwise.

it means its due for service. If u wanna get rid of it without servicing the vehicle then as you start the car simultaneously push the ODOMETER reset button on the dash and it will wipe it. This will however just delay the point your car needs servicing.

There should be a cable that runs from the back of your speedometer to the transmission. If you look on the engines side of the firewall you should be able to track it....it is one of very few cables that run into the transmission. NOTE: its a little thicker than most. At the transmission there will be a fastener of some sort holding it in. Unscrew it and check the end of the cable. If all seems well try attaching a drill to that end and have a buddy look at the gage to see if it shows speed when the drill is running ...if not then its either broken in the middle somewhere or came unhooked from behind the guage....if it does show speed then it was either not seated correctly to the transmission or the plastic tip (looks like plastic gear) on the transmission side of the cable it worn down too far. That tip is interchangeable for if you get bigger/smaller tires.
