You hav'nt mentioned the vehicle or engine your refering to , timing marks are on TWO surfaces that have to be aligned , without knowing which engine you are working on i can not be more precise , the popping is a definate sign that the timing is out

Sounds like its running on 3 cylinders


I have done a bit of research on your engine but I an confused . Do you have a timing belt (rubber)Or a timing chain as you keep jumping from one to the other in your problem description. Audi engines 2.0 ltrs came out with both but obviously there cannot be both in the engine.. . Have a compression test done to check if you missed a bent valve. Check the injector operation as you have not mentioned injectors in your list of items done.

Where are the timing marks on a 1994 honda civic 1.5


On the Cam gear are three marks. On the face of the gear it should say "up", then you have three marks one at 3 o'clock one at 7 o'clock one at 9 o'clock. the one at 7 should align up with a mark on the block. Some have a raised semicircle and you line up the 7 o'clock mark on the cam with the far left hand end of that semicircle. Now on the crack end you have a mark at the 2 o'clock position and it lines up with a mark on the block. Do not turn the crank or the cam independent of one another, as the valves can be bent. Remove the spark plugs to ease turning the engine when needed. The engine will turn counterclockwise. Remove all necessary left hand front wheel, inner fender splash guard, covers, top engine mount. turn the engine until number 1 cyl. is at TDC compression stroke, and all timing marks align as noted. Remove the lower crankshaft bolt and pulley, and lower belt cover. Loosen tensioner bolt and push it out of your way and remove the belt. Put on the new timing belt in this order, crank sprocket, cam sprocket, water pump sprocket, tensioner. Belt must be tight on no tensioner side. Push the tensioner against the belt. Turn the engine 4 turns counterclockwise, until the timing marks realign, loosen the tensioner and turn the engine again 3 teeth, torque the tensioner to 30 flbs. reinstall all the mounts and covers. all should be good.

I need help to set the timing on 1999 ford expedition 5.4l.


If it's valve timing you are referring to, follow these steps.

Orient the crank sprocket with the mark at the six o'clock position. Fold both chains in half, with the two copper links on one end, and the single copper link on the other end. (If there are no marks visible, you can make your own using paint, or other suitable marker that won't rub off)

Install the timing chain guides. Begin by setting up passenger side bank cam, with the single copper link lined up with the mark on the crank sprocket at the six o'clock position, on the INNER gear (the one closest to the engine). While holding the cam with vise grips, route the chain with the two copper links lining it up to the mark on the cam sprocket (sprocket should be at around the 11 o'clock position). Install the right side timing chain tensioner, and torque to two 10mm bolts to spec.

Repeat above outlined procedure for the driver side bank cam (sprocket on this bank should be at around the one o'clock position).

We are installing a timing chain in our 1995 Jeep cherokee sundown edition for the first time can you please send me the timing gear specs the motor is a 4.0 with air. thank you


By :"specs" I assume you need install position? To index the gears, whne you take it apart, turn the crank pulley 'till the timing mark aligns with the "0" on the timing scale. Don't turn the crankshaft again. When you are ready to install the chain, locate the mark on the crank gear and align the mark on the cam gear so they point to each other. The mark on the crank gear should be at 12 o'clock and the cam gear mark at 6 o'clock. Make sure when you put the cam gear on the cam that the location pin fits into the gear to position it correctly. Jeep recommends that after putting the chain and gears on, you rotate the engine by hand and place the crank mark at 6 o'clock and the cam gear at 3 o'clock, then count the number of pins in the chain (pins, not links) between those two points. There should be 15 pins. If you are rebuilding the engine and have the cylinder removed, it's a good time to check the front crank pulley (some have the outer ring move on the rubber). Put a piece of flat steel across #1 cylinder with a bolt through the steel extending into the bore center. Turn the engine by hand 'till the piston contacts the bolt. Make a mark on the pulley and turn the engine in the opposite direction till contact is again made. Your timing mark on the pulley should be exactly between the two marks you made. If not, make a new mark at that point and use that as your actual TDC reference. If it is radically off, replace the pulley.
When setting up cam position I always use a degree wheel. If you are installing an aftermarket cam
its important to do that. If you're just replacing a stock chain, You will be fine with the method I've outlined.

I have a 1994 geo metro & i'm replacing the timming belt but i ran across a problem. the cam shaft pully has two marks on it (1) mark has 60a & the other mark has 80c. so how do i aline the cam...


thats why you line everything up BEFORE taking the belt off. Usually when the timing marks are "ON" the dowel pin or key for the cam will be at the 12 o clock position. Also if you have the valve cover off, both cam lobes for number one cylinder will be pointing down.and both rocker arms loose. it would be a good idea to adjust the valves also.

How do i put my 1994 v6 32-valve isuzu rodeo back in time


it would help if you gave an engine size but I'll guess its a 3.1 with a timing chain. there is a mark on the lower gear (crankshaft) which should be at 12 o clock position. on the camshaft there may be 2 marks 180 degrees apart from each other. number 1 cylinder is on the passenger side front, remove the distributor cap and align the ignition rotor to face where #1 spot on the distributor cap is by rotating the camshaft. this should put 1 of the marks at 12 o clock and 1 of the marks at 6 o clock. thats where you want the gears to be.

We change the cambelt and something very wrong happened, after putting everything together and starting the car.. it sound really wierd and the car is shaking. Probably the geerwheels are in wrong...


put number one cyl to tdc take out plug put long screwdriver down to check this if you are not sure /check marks on cam pulleys are correct at this point you need to use locking tool to hold pulleys still .if used before you would not have had a problem re fit belt tension turn over 2 times re check marks re check belt tension should be ok now unless valve has got bent moral always lock the camshafs on twin cam engines

Changed the water pump on my 1997 passport & now the timing is off.


I assume you are talking about valve timing not igntion timing. If that is the case your water pump maybe run by the timing belt. If it is you would need to completely disassemble the timing cover and set the number one cylinder to TDC (top dead center) on the Compression stroke not the exhaust stroke. Once you do that line the timing marks up on cam gears with marks on the side of the head. Then install a new timing belt and tensioner. It is a good idea to always change the pump and belt together. I would suggest buying a manual for your specific vehicle for specific torque specs and exact locations of components and procedures.
