If you have the six there are marks on the cams i belive they point at 10 and 2 facing each other and if you look through the holes in the cam gears there are marks that line up with the marks on the cam then there is a notch in the crank gear that lines up with a dimple in the block(oil pump)if you line cams up before removing belt you should be ok and a tip when you get the belt around the love pulley stick a piece of rubber hose under belt this will prevent the belt from spinning the crank as it is lodged between timing belt and lip on oil pump also prevents belt from jumping teeth so you can get slack to the proper side also the office style paperclips that fold over after clipped to papers these wprk well to hold the belt to the cams so when your fussing with the tensioner the cams wont move and jump time but spin the crank 2 revolutions before tottally reassembling but all your timing marks should line up again

Can't get the timing to line up ... In fact can't even see the marks when highlighted. The distributor has been slowed to a point the engine won't run to come even close to lining up dead center ? Got any...

The problem as I understand it is you need to find the timeing make to establisih the timeing of the engine witch you don;t supply in the question.
The first thing you need to do is locate # 1 cylinder then find the fireing order of the engine .
Then have you removed the dist shaft or plug wires from the engine if so you have likely created the problem.
The # 1 cylinder will be in the front of the engine L-R take out all of the plugs you will be able bar the engine over from the crankshaft nut .
Find on the comprestion stroke # 1 ciylinder TDC top dead center the disturbtor shaft in the vehicle the rotor should line up with #1 cylinder ware the spark plug wire to # 1 on the dist cap and the spark plug ware the wire goes to .
Keep in mind by removeing the disturbutor shaft it will not go back in the same pisition it will be 1 click behind .
A good trick to install a disturbur is line it up 1 click behind what you need then click the key it usely will drop into the correct pisition

Hi! What are the correct timing marks for a 1.8 suzuki esteem engine. I needed for change the timing chain. Thanks

if you take off the upper belt cover and line up the top dead center timing mark the cam mark will be right on or off 180 degrees. Line up the dot on the cam with the arrow by rotating the crankshaft around till both the cam mark and the crank TDC mark line up. Now when you take off the lower cover all the marks will line up for the crank. They are usually pretty obvious, but if your are not sure at this point you can always paint your own. Just make sure when you slide the new belt on , all the timing marks line up.

Driver side brake caliber is locking after the brakes are applied. It will losing if you tap the break pedal

sounds like the slide pins need to be looked at for ware, marks, scoreing.If there is no marks then just regrease and put back in ,but make sure you use grease that is recomended for break calipers.if cost is a factor for the grease then you can use high temp bareing grease.they also have replacements at most autoparts stores if 1 should break.if this doesnt fix it then start looking at the rubber break line as these can swell inside over time and particles can collect in side it and mess with the fluid flow,those are the cheepest to replace.after those then comes checking the proportioning valve and or master cylinder.and maybe replaceing the caliper its self.

Need to know how to line the timing marks on the 1.7 ltr. sohc on my 2004 honda civic ex, has timing belt

there is a timing mark on the timing cover that lines up with the mark on the crank pulley (i believe the mark is above the white dot on the crank) then on the 2 gears up top, there are lines that should line up horizontally with the top of the timing cover.

Timing mark problem. 92 jimmy.

Get a piece of sand paper or a wire brush it wont ware the numbers off they are engraved/stamped on there.
If not you can try timing it by ear just loosen your distributor and make small adjustments after each adjustment take it for a drive you will know when you got it right.

dont worry about that you will have to turn the motor over 40 to 50 time before those timing belt marks line up again if your pulley marks line up correctly thats all you have to worry about
