The keyway and or the dot on the crank should be line at 12 oclock. You will see a point on the oil pump housing to go by. On the camshaft the pointer will be at 12 oclock also. Use the O on the camshaft to the top at mark. Be sure to look at the dist. roter to make sure that it is pointing at the #1 spark plug wire. I could get 180 out of time. If you do it right it should start up right away. then you can use a timing light to finish it.
Good Luck jerry1938@hotmail.com

Not sure if it is possible to have it run smoothly by being off a tooth.

The hash marks on the cam pulleys line up with the timing belt cover that goes over those pulleys. Should be two notches in the cover.

As for the lower marks...those aren't really visible till the lower aux. belt pulley is removed. Then you'll have a clear view of the line up marks. One on the inside and one on the outter area of the pulley itself.

When you put the t-belt on...it is a good idea to replace the tensioner as well.

Also when you have the new belt on...adjust the tensioner so that the handle looking thing is centered between the two notches that hold the tensioner in place to the block.

After putting all that together, its a good idea to rotate the timing belt two to four rotations till the marks all line up again. That will let you know if you are hitting the valves or not.

SOURCE: how to set the twin cam ,on a renault megane

a renault ,real euro car this one ,no problem here at all ,bring the pistons to TDC the bring back a bit so no piston is at the top ,mark it whilst its at the top with a thin white paint mark on the sprocket ,then back it down a bit .fit head because i sure the head bolts are under the cams ,then fit cams and make sure the inlet and exhaust valves are closed on no1 .no4 should be open with the cam lobes pointing down ,now look for the timing marks,they could be a lug on the cam pointing at something or a slot on the back of the camshaft that has to horizontal with the head ,or even a hole in the front pulley that aligns with a hole indent in the head that has an 8mm bolt push in to hold gear wheel in place -then when you find the marks bring the bottom sprocket back to the mark ,the actual mark is on the flywheel as i remember a special tool with a spring loaded pin to locate flywheel is used ,the fit the belt ,seem to remember a white line here on the belt that aligns with the cams a well ?? look iam old and i forget things ,then make sure you turn engine over twice on bottom pulley with a ratchet to ensure valves clear before starting -

I have a 2001 Renault laguna 2 1.8 16v and the timing belt has broken, it has got too many marks on the wheel so I don't know how to allign them could you please help me out?


You can google the part and it will show you what you are asking about. To my knowledge there should be a dot on the wheel for you to start from and on the belt or else it doesn't matter where you place the belt just be sure the cam gears are lined up.

I have a 2006 toyota highlander limited 3.3 engine and i need instructions on how to replace timing belt plus adjustments to cams and crankshaft


The belt replacement involves the correct allignment of the timing marks on each of the pulleysm such as crankshaft, cam, etc. If you install it and these are out of correct allignment, your mechanical timing of the main engine components is out of timing and will cause terrible damage to the inside of your engine. If you insist on changing it yourself, by all means aquire a service manual and follow the instructions exactly. As far as "adjusting the cams and crankshaft, there are no adjustments.....only the correct allingment of the timing marks as per manufacturers specs. This is a very serious repair, and mistakes are very costly. Best Wishes

I had to change my head gasket on my 2001 VW Passat. That went great but know when I try to put back my timing belt it will not start. I have tried everything. I have alligned all the marks and still...


After you aligned the timing marks and tightened up the tensioner pulley, did you re-check your timing marks? Usually when you tighten the tensioner it will pull the cam and crank out of alignment. Line up the crankshaft first and then check to see where your cam gear is. If it is not lined up, loosen the tensioner and move the cam gear ahead to line it back up. If it doesn't line up perfectly then go AHEAD until the marks line up and put the belt back on. If the gear is on the mark and the belt teeth don't line up, move the gear ahead until you can get the belt on,but no more than a full tooth on the belt. Tighten your tensioner and check again. At most the cam sprocket should only be off about 1/2 tooth from the marks and it should be ahead not behind. Re-align your distributor to #1 and it should start. Hope this helps.

You will probably have to take your timing belt off, allign the marks, then put your belt back on. Had the same problem. That's what I had to do. They have to be alligned. Check your book though. I think all has to be at 12 o'clock but I am not 100% sure.

How to set the timing on a 1995 chrysler new yorker


There is no way to set the timing on this vehicle. Everything is computer controlled. The timing is controlled by readings from a combination sensors on the engine. The main sensor responsible for the timing is the CAM Position Sensor. This isn't the only sensor, just the main one. It is found on the top front of the engine, right near the coolant thermostat housing.

The cam position lines up with a notch in the tin piece that the timing belt cover bolts too.

The crank lines up with a boss located on the front of the block about 1 o clock to the right.

If you have the 2.0 L engine, then the two cam marks should point upward to match the notches in the valve cover. The crankshaft notch should point downwards to match the V notch in the lip of the oil pan. Hope this helps...
