SOURCE: how to set timing on

First the timing is easier to set with that big metal thing removed on the side of the engine. Next I set the No# 1 cylinder to TDC. If you remove the cap to the distributor it helps. They are 8mm bolts three of them.

Pull the plug and insert a platstic straw in the No 1 cylinder When it stops going completly up its at TDC I set it to 10 degrees BTDC by watching the marks on the front cranshaft pulley Never turn the engine backwards the timing belt cold come off. Sometimes its easier to remove the other plugs and turn it by hand.

Next remove the distributor Yes completly, not just the cap. Look at the 4 poles or tabs on the shaft inside the distributor and notice how they align up to the stationary pick up pole inside the distributor as the rotor shaft rotates. Put the rotor part on the shaft, and mark the spot when the rotor is pointing to the No1 spark plug wire position as it passes one of these poles This is your new timing mark.

Now put the distributor back in so the rotor is pointing to the No 1 postion or this mark. You now have a timing of 10 degrees BTDC or where ever the crank was set.

Tip: As the distributor goes in it will turn one way as it engages the gear So yu must lead the mark when you go to put the ditributor in by turning the shaft off your mark.

The distributor will rotate too, so you can align the timing mark you made on the distributor to the rotor shaft. I use white paint applied with a small touch up brush for my mark.

Also your mount bolt should fit in the slot cut in the bottom of the distributor to tighten it in place.

SOURCE: 1994 Toyota Corolla - Valve COver Gasket Replacement

You need an aftermarket serviice manual from Haynes or Chilton. They will have that kind of info.
I know of no car (I don't know them all) where that is needed and depending on the cover material (sheet steel or cast), could lead to warping and new leaks. I always use a thin film of silicone whether it is specified or not and there are torque specs for ALL valve covers I have ever seen.

SOURCE: need to know how to adjust valves, or a print-out

This engine utilizes shims to set proper clearances, you will need a micrometer, valve clearance adjustment tool set for shimmed lifters,small magnetic arm, appropriate shim selecting charts (manufacturer will have this if you can get the nec. measurements).
Measure thickness of shims removed (using micrometer) and use this formula where T=Thickness of old shim; A=Valve clearance measured; N=Thickness of new shim required.
Intake valves:   N = T + (A - 0.02 mm (0.008 in.)) Exh. valves:     N = T + (A - 0.25 mm (0.010 in.))
Then you need to find shims as close as possible to the calculated values.
Valve clearances (cold) are as follows: Intake 0.15 - 0.25 mm (0.006 - 0.010 in.) Exhaust 0.20 - 0.30 mm (0.008 - 0.012 in.)
Note, if you are not familiar with precision measuring using a micrometer, this may be better left to a trained tech. These are high revving little power plants and you don't want a problem at 8K rpm.

4ac engine. What causes backfiring?


This can be caused by improper engine timing. Has the timing belt been worked on? Consider inspecting it to see if the timing marks are lined up properly.

Another possibility is a too-lean mixture, cause by an air leak in the intake, or too-low fuel pressure. Inspect the flexible bellows in the intake tract for splits, and have a mechanic measure fuel pressure. I'd advise against the old method of measuring fuel delivery quantity in a given time, it is too dangerous.

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.

YOU HAVE AN EARTHING PROBLEM MOST LIKELY A FAULTY EARTH STRAP BETWEEN THE ENGINE BLOCK AND THE CAR BODY [THIS IS A SEPARATE THICK CABLE OR FLAT BRAIDED CABLE WHICH IS ATTACHED AT ONE END TO THE ENGINE BLOCK - USUALLY ON THE CYLINDER HEAD, AND THE OTHER END ATTACHED TO THE FIREWALL OR CHASSIS RAIL] IF THIS WIRE IS BROKEN OR THE ENDS ARE CORRODED OR LOOSE THEN YOU WILL GETTHE SORT OF SYMPTOMS YOU DESCRIBE.

RUN A NEW CABLE FROM ANY POINT ON THE ENGINE BLOCK TO A PART OF THE BODYWORK AND SEE IF THAT CURES YOUR PROBLEMS
