SOURCE: timing chain

Each gear has an arrow and a dot. The chain should have two differently colored links. Position the crankshaft sprocket so the arrow is pointed up with the dot to your right. Position the camshaft sprocket with the arrow pointed straight down at the crankshaft sprocket and it's dot should also be to the right. The colored links on the chain should be lined up with the dots.

I believe you have to make your own marks before you remove the chain so you can line it back up.
I just checked on alldata and thats the only thing they showed about timing marks.

Timming chain broke


place no 1 piston at TDC compression stroke. There are procedures for the timing of the balance shafts but if it is only the timing chain I will go to that
Align uniquely coloured chain link with intake camshaft sprocket timing mark-- INT--. ( this will be pointing at the 2 o'clock position)
install timing chain and sprocket as an assembly
align first matching coloured chain link crankshaft timing mark (5 o'clock position)
align the second matching coloured chain link with exhaust cam shaft timing mark--EXH ( at the 11 o'clock position
There is a special procedure to reset the balance tensioner and it is different to the timing chain procedure.

To reset cam shaft timing chain tensioner push piston fully and turn clockwise until locked
Once the tensioner has been compressed ensure the distance from end to end is 2.83 inches . If not repeat the resetting process
vehicles 30.000 miles the tensioner is released when the engine is first started . In vehicles over 30.000 miles manually release tensioner by tapping the plunger
Note cam shaft and crank shaft sprockets bolts MUST only be used once. If you want details on the balancer chain procedure then make a comment in the box
use tension wrench and a degree gauge
cam bolts are tensioned to 63 ft lbs + 30 degrees
crank shaft pulley is tensioned to 74 ft lbs + 75 degrees

Timing chain marks needed for Audi A4 B9 1.8tfsi 2009 model. Engine was taken out and settings not marked. This is extremelyurgent. Please help


diagrams I have show a twin cam set up with 2 balancing shafts. The marks on the cam shaft point to (left cam shaft 11 oclock the mark on the right point to the 1 oclock position. The chain will have 3 black links-- the top black links will be at the timing marks on the shafts with the 3rd black link directly at 6 oclock facing a mark on the gear. The balancer marks both point to the 1 oclock position with black links on each and the 3rd black link will be facing a mark to the 7 oclock position on the crankahaft gear. Everything is done with the piston at TDC no 1 cylinder so get it there before you put the cam shafts in position or you will bend valves. Crank shaft gear is not keyed to the crank shaft. there are dots on the right hand balancer shaft gears and these dots will be as the 2 dots on adjacent teeth either side of a dot on the meshing gear. I suppose that is all as clear as mud but if you got this far then you will see the marks and marked links on the chains

I would like to have a diagram of the timing comfiguration of a 2002 dodge intrepid 2.7 .....i am very interested in the timining marks for the camshafts


Hi, this engine uses plated links in the chain to match marks on the gears. See figure and installation procedure below. Let me know if you have any questions and thanks for using FixYa.

jturcotte_614.gif
    1. Install the timing chain by performing the following procedure:
    1. Verify that the crankshaft sprocket timing mark is aligned with the mark on the oil pump housing.
    2. Place the left side primary timing chain sprocket onto the chain, while aligning the timing mark on the sprocket to the 2 plated links on the chain.
    3. Lower the chain with the left sprocket through the left cylinder head opening.
    4. Loosely position the left camshaft sprocket over the camshaft hub.
    5. Align the plated link to the crankshaft sprocket timing mark.
    6. Position the timing chain around the water pump drive sprocket.
    7. Align the right camshaft sprocket timing mark to the plated link on the timing chain and loosely position the sprocket over the camshaft hub.
    8. Verify that all the plated links are aligned to their proper timing marks.
    1. Install the left lower timing chain guide and tensioner. Torque the bolts to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm).
      NOTE Inspect the timing chain guide access plug O-rings before installing. Replace damaged O-rings as necessary.
    2. Install the timing chain guide access plug to the left cylinder head and torque to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
      NOTE To reset the timing chain tensioner, oil will first need to be purged from the tensioner.
    1. Purge oil from the timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
    1. Remove the tensioner from the tensioner housing.
    2. Place the check ball end of the tensioner into the shallow end of the Tensioner Resetting Special tool 8186.
    3. Using hand pressure, slowly depress the tensioner until oil is purged from the cylinder.
    4. Reinstall the tensioner into the tensioner housing.
    1. Reset the timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
    1. Position the cylinder plunger into the deeper side of the Tensioner Resetting special tool 8186. Apply a downward force until the tensioner is reset.

    WARNING

    Ensure that the tensioner is properly reset. The tensioner body must be bottomed against the top edge of the Tensioner Resetting Special tool 8186. Failure to properly perform the resetting procedure may cause tensioner jamming.

    1. Install the chain tensioner into the right cylinder head.
    2. At the right cylinder head, insert a 3 / 8 in. square drive extension with a breaker bar into the intake camshaft drive hub. Rotate the camshaft until the camshaft hub aligns with the camshaft sprocket and damper attaching holes. Install the sprocket attaching bolts and torque to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm).
    3. Turn the left camshaft by inserting a 3 / 8 in. square drive extension with a breaker bar into the intake camshaft drive hub. Rotate the camshaft until the camshaft hub aligns with the camshaft sprocket and damper attaching holes. Install the sprocket attaching bolts and torque to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm).
    4. If necessary, rotate the engine slightly clockwise to remove any slack in the timing chain.
    5. To arm the timing chain tensioner: Use a flat-bladed prytool to gently pry the tensioner arm towards the tensioner slightly. Then, release the tensioner arm. Verify the tensioner extends.
    6. Inspect and replace the timing chain cover gasket and oil seal.
    7. Apply a 1 / 8 in. (3mm) bead of sealer at the parting line of the oil pan and engine block.
      NOTE When installing the timing cover, guide the seal over the crankshaft to prevent damage to the seal-s lip.

    I have a 99 dodge intrepid that threw a rod and my father-in-law and I have been trying to time the car for a year now. We get number one piston up but the mark on the oil pump doesnt line up with the mark...


    I'm not sure what you may be "doing wrong", but here is the manufacturer procedure for aligning the timing marks.
    d753c93.gif
    98f82f3.gif
    ^Refer to this diagram during step 12.
    046beb2.gif
    ^Refer to this diagram during step 13.
    95add8f.gif
    ^Refer to this diagram for step 19.

    1. Align crankshaft sprocket timing mark to the mark on oil pump housing. NOTE: Lubricate timing chain and guides with engine oil before installation.
    2. Place left side primary chain sprocket onto the chain so that the timing mark is located in-between the two (plated) timing links.
    3. Lower the primary chain with left side sprocket through the left cylinder head opening. NOTE: The camshaft sprockets can be allowed to float on the camshaft hub during installation.
    4. Loosely position left side camshaft sprocket over camshaft hub.
    5. Align timing (plated) link to the crankshaft sprocket timing mark.
    6. Position primary chain onto water pump drive sprocket.
    7. Align right camshaft sprocket timing mark to the timing (plated) link on the timing chain and loosely position over camshaft hub.
    8. Verify that all chain timing (plated) links are properly aligned to the timing marks on all sprockets.
    9. Install left side lower chain guide and tensioner arm. Tighten attaching bolts to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.). NOTE: Inspect oil ring on chain guide access plug before installing. Replace O-ring as necessary.
    10. Install chain guide access plug to left side cylinder head. Tighten plug to 20 Nm (15 ft. lbs.)
    11. NOTE:
    To reset the primary timing chain tensioner, engine oil will first need to be purged from the tensioner.
    12. Purge oil from timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
    a) Place the check ball end of tensioner into the shallow end of Special Tool 8186.
    b) Using hand pressure, slowly depress tensioner until oil is purged from tensioner.
    13. Reset timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
    a) Position cylinder plunger into the deeper end of Special Tool 8186.
    b) Apply a downward force until tensioner is reset. NOTE: If oil was not first purged from the tensioner, use slight finger pressure to assist the center arm pin of Special Tool 8186 to unseat the tensioner's check ball. CAUTION: Ensure the tensioner is properly reset. The tensioner body must bottom against the top edge of Special Tool 8186. Failure to properly perform the resetting procedure may cause tensioner jamming.
    14. Install the reset chain tensioner into the right cylinder head.
    15. Position tensioner retaining plate and tighten bolts to 12 Nm (105 in. lbs.).
    16. Starting at the right cylinder bank, insert a 3/8" square drive extension with a breaker bar into intake camshaft drive hub. Rotate camshaft until the camshaft hub aligns to the camshaft sprocket and damper attaching holes. Install the sprocket attaching bolts and tighten to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.).
    17. Turn the left side camshaft by inserting a 3/8" square drive extension with a breaker bar into intake camshaft drive hub and rotate camshaft until the sprocket attaching bolts can be installed. Tighten sprocket bolts to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.).
    18. Rotate engine slightly clockwise to remove timing chain slack, if necessary.
    19. To arm the timing chain tensioner: Use a flat bladed pry tool to gently pry tensioner arm towards the tensioner slightly. Then, release the tensioner arm. Verify the tensioner is armed (extends).
    20. Install the timing chain cover, crankshaft damper, and cylinder head covers.
    21. Install camshaft position sensor and connect electrical connector.

    Hope this helps!

    This is a job for an experienced technician. Probably about a $300 job. Maybe more.

    Here is procedure for 1996:

    Removal
    1. Drain the cooling system. Refer to Section 03-03 for the procedure.
    1. Disconnect the battery ground cable (14301).
    1. Remove the generator drive belt, water pump and power steering pump drive belt, and the A/C compressor drive belt (if equipped). Refer to Section 03-05 for the removal procedure.
    1. If equipped, remove the three A/C compressor drive belt idler pulley bolts and the A/C compressor drive belt idler pulley.
    1. Remove the upper radiator hose bracket bolt.
    1. Loosen the two upper radiator hose clamps and remove the radiator hose bracket bolt. Remove the upper radiator hose (8260) and the upper radiator hose bracket from the vehicle.
    1. Remove the water bypass hose (8597) from between the thermostat housing and the water hose connection (8592).
    1. Remove the main wiring harness from the upper engine front cover (6019).
    1. Remove the eight upper engine front cover bolts and the upper engine front cover.
    1. Raise and support the vehicle.
    1. Remove the RH front wheel and tire assembly.
    1. Remove the four RH outer engine and transmission splash shield bolts and two screws and remove the RH outer engine and transmission splash shield (6775).
    1. Use Strap Wrench D85L-6000-A or equivalent to hold the water pump pulley (8509) while removing the four water pump pulley bolts.
    1. Remove the water pump pulley from the water pump (8501).
    1. Remove the crankshaft pulley (6312). Refer to the procedure in this section.
    1. Remove the five lower engine front cover bolts and the lower engine front cover.
    2. Ensure that the timing marks between the crankshaft sprocket (6306) and the oil pump housing line up.
    2acab54.gif
    18. NOTE: The directional arrow is necessary to ensure that the timing chain/belt (6268) can be reinstalled in the same direction.

    If the timing chain/belt is to be reused, mark the direction of rotation on the timing chain/belt.

    19. Loosen the timing chain/belt tensioner nut.

    1. Remove the timing chain/belt.
    Installation
    NOTE: Ensure that the timing marks on the camshaft sprockets (6256) and the seal plate are properly aligned. Ensure that the timing marks on the crankshaft sprocket and the oil pump housing are still aligned.



    stv~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Pay special attention to the tooth shape of the timing belt. The current timing belts are not interchangeable with the timing belts from the 1993 model year. The 1993 model year uses a square or trapezoidal tooth timing belt while the current model year uses a rounded tooth design. The design change was made to extend the service life of the timing belt from 60,000 miles for the square or trapezoidal toothed belt to 105,000 miles for the rounded tooth belt. If the proper timing belt is not used, the customer may complain of a "whining" noise coming from the engine compartment. If the camshaft sprocket has a square cut in the valley of the gear tooth, it will require a square or trapezoidal tooth timing belt. If the camshaft sprocket has a rounded cut in the valley of the gear tooth, it will require a rounded tooth timing belt.
    NOTE: If a new timing chain/belt is to be installed, make sure that the arrow is pointing away from the engine. If a timing chain/belt is to be reused, make sure that the directional arrow that was marked during disassembly is facing the correct direction.

    NOTE: A new timing chain/belt has three white timing marks that indicate the correct timing positions of the camshafts and the crankshaft. These marks will help ensure that the engine (6007) is timed properly. When the engine is properly timed each white timing mark on the timing chain/belt will be aligned with the corresponding camshaft and crankshaft timing mark on the sprocket. Because the white timing marks are not evenly spaced you will need to refer to the following illustration for proper timing chain/belt placement. There should be 40 timing belt teeth between the timing marks of the front and rear camshaft sprockets and 43 teeth between the timing mark on the front camshaft sprocket and the timing mark on the crankshaft sprocket.

    NOTE: Verify that the camshaft timing marks are aligned with the timing marks on the seal plate, and that the crankshaft sprocket timing mark is aligned with the timing mark on the oil pump (6600).

    Install the timing chain/belt starting at the crankshaft sprocket and moving around to the camshaft sprockets following a counterclockwise path. Do not allow any slack in the timing chain/belt between the timing sprockets. After all of the timing marks are matched up with the timing chain/belt installed, slip the timing chain/belt onto the timing chain/belt tensioner.

    1. While holding the timing chain/belt tensioner with an Allen wrench, loosen the timing chain/belt tensioner nut.
    1. Allow the timing chain/belt tensioner to put pressure on the timing chain/belt.
    1. Use an Allen wrench to turn the timing chain/belt tensioner 70-80 degrees clockwise and tighten the timing chain/belt tensioner nut to 43-58 Nm (32-43 lb-ft).

      1. Rotate the crankshaft (6303) clockwise twice and align the No. 1 piston to Top Dead Center (TDC) on its compression stroke.
      1. Apply 98N (22 lbs) of force on the timing chain/belt between the rear camshaft sprocket and the timing chain/belt tensioner.
      2. NOTE: An assistant may be needed to adjust the timing chain/belt.

        While holding the timing chain/belt tensioner steady with an Allen wrench, loosen the timing chain/belt tensioner nut. Remove the Allen wrench and adjust the timing chain/belt tensioner as follows:
        1. Install a 0.35mm (0.0138 inch) thick and 12.7mm (0.500 inch) wide feeler gauge as shown.

    1. Turn the crankshaft clockwise to position the feeler gauge between the timing chain/belt tensioner and the timing chain/belt

    1. Tighten the timing chain/belt tensioner nut to 43-58 Nm (32-43 lb-ft).
    1. Turn the crankshaft clockwise to remove the feeler gauge from between the timing chain/belt tensioner and the timing chain/belt.
    1. Rotate the crankshaft clockwise twice and align the No. 1 piston to TDC on its compression stroke.
    1. Apply 98N (22 lbs) of force on the timing chain/belt between the rear and front camshaft sprocket.
      1. Measure the timing chain/belt deflection. Timing chain/belt deflection should be between 13-15mm (0.51-0.59 inch). If timing chain/belt deflection is not within specification, repeat steps 3-11. If the timing chain/belt cannot be adjusted to within specification, the timing chain/belt will have to be replaced.
      1. Position the lower engine front cover and install the five lower engine front cover bolts. Tighten the five lower engine front cover bolts to 3-5 Nm (27-44 lb-in).
      1. Install the outer timing chain/belt guide and the crankshaft pulley. Refer to the procedure in this section.
      1. Position the water pump pulley on the water pump and install the four water pump pulley bolts
      1. Use Strap Wrench D85L-6000-A or equivalent to hold the water pump pulley, and tighten the four water pump pulley bolts to 16-21 Nm (12-15 lb-ft).
      1. Position the RH outer engine and transmission splash shield and install the four RH outer engine and transmission splash shield bolts and two screws.
      1. Install the RH front wheel and tire assembly. Tighten the lug nuts (1012) to 98-118 Nm (72-87 lb-ft).

    Timing specs


    Here is All Lititure But Pictures Wont show up on FixYa for some reason, I can Email it ALL to you Just Send Me A Request to my Nickname here @aol.com


    SPECIAL TOOLS REQUIRED (or equivalents)
    • J-36008, Camshaft sprocket timing alignment pins.
    • J-39579, Camshaft sprocket wrench.
    CAUTIONS:
    • The timing chain on the 1996 LD9 (VIN T) Twin Cam Engine is not to be replaced with the timing chain from any other model year. The timing sprockets are different on the Twin Cam Engine and the shape of the links matches the sprockets. Engine damage may result if the wrong timing chain is used.
    • The timing chain and crankshaft sprocket MUST be marked so that they are reinstalled with the same side facing out at the time of reassembly.
    • Failure to follow the removal and installation procedures could result in severe engine damage.
    REMOVE OR DISCONNECT
    1. Negative battery cable.
    2. Front cover, refer to Timing Cover / Service and Repair .
    3. Rotate crankshaft in clockwise direction until camshaft and crankshaft timing marks are aligned.
    4. Timing chain guides.
    5. Raise and support vehicle.
    6. Ensure slack in timing chain is above tensioner assembly, then remove chain tensioner. The timing chain must be disengaged from grooves in tensioner shoe to permit removal of shoe. Position a suitable screwdriver under timing chain while pulling shoe outward. If difficulty is encountered in removing tensioner shoe, proceed as follows:
      1. Lower vehicle, then while holding the intake camshaft sprocket with J-39579, remove sprocket bolt and washer.
      2. Remove washer, then install bolt into camshaft by hand.
      3. Position a suitable three jaw puller into intake camshaft sprocket relief holes and remove sprocket. CAUTION: Do NOT pry on camshaft sprocket as damage to sprocket or timing chain housing may result.
    1. Tensioner assembly attaching bolts and tensioner assembly.
    2. MARK CRANKSHAFT SPROCKET AND TIMING CHAIN outer surface for reassembly.
    3. Timing chain.
    INSTALL OR CONNECT
    1. Intake camshaft sprocket onto camshaft with surface marked during removal showing.
    2. Intake camshaft sprocket retaining bolt and washer, torque to 70 Nm (52 ft lbs) while holding the sprocket with J-39579 (if removed).
    3. Timing pins, J-36008, through holes in camshaft sprockets into holes in timing chain housing to position camshafts for proper timing. If camshafts are out of position and must be rotated more that 1/8 turn to insert timing pins:
      1. Crankshaft MUST be rotated 90°clockwise off of TDC in order to give the valves adequate clearance to open.
      2. Once the camshafts are in position and the timing pins have been installed rotate crankshaft COUNTERCLOCKWISE to TDC. CAUTION: Do NOT rotate the crankshaft clockwise to TDC, valve or piston damage could occur.
    1. Timing chain over exhaust camshaft sprocket, around idler sprocket and around crankshaft sprocket.
    2. Set camshaft sprockets at timed position and install timing chain. Remove timing pin from intake camshaft. Using J-39579, rotate the intake camshaft sprocket counterclockwise until timing chain can be installed over sprocket. Release J-39579 after timing chain has been installed over sprocket. The length of chain between intake and exhaust camshaft sprockets should tighten. The timing pin should easily fit through intake camshaft sprocket timing hole into timing chain housing timing hole. If timing pin does not fully index, the camshafts are NOT timed correctly and the procedure MUST be repeated.
    3. With timing pins installed, raise and support vehicle.
    4. With slack removed from timing chain between intake camshaft sprocket and crankshaft sprocket, timing marks on crankshaft and engine block should be aligned. If the marks are not aligned, move timing chain one tooth forward or rearward to align marks. Remove slack and recheck marks.
    5. Reload tensioner assembly to zero position as follows:
      1. Form a keeper out of heavy gauge wire into a U-shaped piece with a half inch opening.
      2. Apply slight force on tensioner blade to compress plunger.
      3. Insert small screwdriver into reset access hole and pry rachet pawl away from ratchet teeth while forcing the plunger completely in the hole.
      4. Install keeper between access hole and blade.
    1. Tensioner assembly to chain housing and recheck plunger assembly installation, noting long end is toward crankshaft.
    2. Tighten timing chain tensioner bolts to 10 Nm (89 in lbs) .
    3. Lower vehicle to point where timing pins can be removed from camshaft sprockets.
    4. Rotate crankshaft two revolutions in the clockwise direction. Align crankshaft keyway with the mark on cylinder block and reinstall timing pins through camshaft sprockets into housing timing holes. Timing pins should slide easily through timing holes. If timing pins cannot be inserted easily, repeat procedure to properly time engine. CAUTION: If the engine is not correctly timed, severe engine damage could occur.
    5. Timing chain guides.
    6. Engine front cover.
    7. Negative battery cable.
