FIRST GET NO. ONE PISTON AT TOP DEAD CENTER USING THE CRANKSHAFT. THEN TRY TO LINE UP CAM AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE AND WHEN SETTING THE TENSIONER PULLEY TAKE NOTE OF HOW MANY TEETH THE CAM IS OFF WHEN THE TENSIONER IS TIGHT. THEN TAKE TENSION OFF THE TIMING BELT AND ROLL THE CAM BACK AS MANY TEETH AS IT WAS OFF WHEN IT WAS TIGHT. THEN RESET TENSIONER AND ROTATE ENGINE WITH CRANKSHAFT AND CHECK MARKS AFTER ONE ROTATION. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA.

How do I put timing back after I changer the timing belt


Hi there, Yeah this is a bit tricky. First things first. what engine do you have in ? Double cams have unique marks. You will see the left cam sprocket should be aligned with "IN" on the intake side and "Exhaust" on the exhaust side. On the same sprocket is a indent line on the edge of the sprocket on the exhaust side. The sprocket on the right side "Exhaust side", should be aligned exactly as the left one. So you have both sprockets aligned with the "intake" facing the intake side and the exhaust facing the exhaust side. You will now notice that there is a line up indent on the outer ring of both sprockets. These should be exactly facing towards each other. Now caution is advised here, even before you start with this, you must move your crankshaft sprocket to the left just so that all pistons are half way up. This will make sure when you do turn the cam shafts that the valves don't interfere with any piston. Now adjust the cam shafts as described above and use inventful mind to lock both cam sprockets in line together. Make dead sure with use of a ruler, that the lines on both sprockets are definitely lined up. Now move your crankshaft sprocket to the right and line up the two markers on the outer side with the line directly above further away from the TDC marks, "Located to the left". So to the right of those TDC marks is a Forged out line. Line the two dots on the c-shaft up with this line. When done with this you may fit on the belt and make sure that the belt is fitted tightly on the exhaust side meaning pulled to near tension, then follow through to the left cam and then over the water pump. Fit on the tension-er. Here you get two different types of tension-ers. Automatic one is fitted under the intake side cam sprocket, it gets hold down with a bolt. the wire fitted with the tension-er loops over a bolt already fitted on the motor. Using a allen key turn the tension er so that the align plate with v-shaped indent is facing directly to the bottom loop of the wire. Then tighten the bolt hold down to lock the tension er in place. Lastly the ideal method before you fire up the engine is to remove the negative battery terminal and after you have fitted the external belt sprockets, on the crankshaft is to turn the engine clock wise and make sure that no valve is interfering with a piston. Turn until you can see the timing marks you just setup aligns back to normal. On the outer belt sprocket fitted on the c-shaft, there is a mark as well, this should also line up with the line further away to the right from the other marks to the left located on the belt cover. When you have spun the c-shaft clockwise, about eight times and all the marks align back to normal without any valve interfering with any piston, you may finish of the rest and fire up. Here your good to go. Good luck

Timing belt


TIMING BELT & SPROCKETS R & I
NOTE: Some procedures may differ slightly due to engine
construction.
Removal
1) Remove all necessary air ducts. Position No. 4 piston at
TDC of compression stroke. Align timing marks. See Fig. 2. Remove fan
and fan shroud. Remove belts. If necessary, remove radiator and
splashguard.
2) Prevent engine from rotating and remove crankshaft timing
pulley retaining bolt. Remove upper and lower timing belt covers.
Remove spring from tension pulley. Loosen adjusting bolt and move
pulley toward water pump. Remove timing belt.
CAUTION: Ensure pistons are at TDC when rotating camshaft or damage
may result.
Inspection
1) Handle timing belt carefully. Avoid twisting or kinking
belt. Do not allow belt to become contaminated by water, oil, dirt or
other contaminates. Inspect belt for cracks or damage. If necessary,
replace.
2) Measure tension pulley spring length and force. Spring
length should not exceed 2.76" (70.2 mm) and spring force should not
be less than 197-347 lbs. (27-48 kg).
3) Replace tension pulley spring if not within specification.
Installation
1) Pull tensioner fully toward water pump side and
temporarily tighten retaining bolt. Ensure No. 4 cylinder is at TDC on
compression stroke by rotating crankshaft until keyway aligns with
mark on front crankshaft seal housing (12 o'clock). Rotate camshaft
until timing mark on cam gear (arrow) aligns with mark on upper
camshaft cover (notch). See Fig. 2.
NOTE: When timing marks are aligned as stated above, No. 4 piston
is at TDC on compression stroke.
2) Position timing belt over crankshaft sprocket, oil pump
sprocket, camshaft sprocket and tensioner in that order. Ensure belt
is positioned in sequence given and without slack between sprockets.
Loosen tension sprocket adjusting bolt allowing spring tension to
tighten belt. Tighten adjusting bolt temporarily.
3) Temporarily install crankshaft pulley bolt and rotate
crankshaft 2 complete revolutions in opposite direction of engine
rotation, until marks on crankshaft and front oil seal retainer are
aligned again. See Fig. 2. Loosen tensioner lock bolt, allowing
tesioner spring to fully adjust tension. Tighten tensioner lock bolt.
4) Install timing belt covers. To complete installation,
reverse removal procedures. Tighten all bolts to specification. See
TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS table at end of this article.

Diesel Engines

Some special tools are required. A flat bar, VW tool no. 2065A, is used to
secure the camshaft in position. A pin, VW tool no. 2064, is used to fix the
pump position while the timing belt is removed. The camshaft and pump work
against spring pressure and will move out of position when the timing belt is
removed. It is not difficult to find substitutes but do not remove the timing
belt without these tools.
NOTE: Do not turn the engine or camshaft with the timing belt
removed. The pistons will contact the valves and cause internal engine damage.



  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the accessory drive belts,
    crankshaft pulley and the timing belt cover(s). Remove the camshaft cover and
    rubber plug at the back end of the camshaft.
  2. Temporarily reinstall the crankshaft pulley bolt and turn the crankshaft to
    TDC of No. 1 piston. The mark on the camshaft sprocket should be aligned with
    the mark on the inner timing belt cover or the edge of the cylinder head.
  3. With the engine at TDC, insert the bar into the slot at the back of the
    camshaft. The bar rests on the cylinder head to will hold the camshaft in
    position.
  4. Insert the pin into the injection pump drive sprocket to hold the pump in
    position.
  5. Loosen the locknut on the tensioner pulley and turn the tensioner
    counterclockwise to relieve the tension on the timing belt. Slide the timing
    belt from the sprockets.
    To install:

  6. Install the new timing belt and adjust the tension so the belt can be

My balance shaft belt broke while I was driving. It stripped some of the teeth off the timing belt and Im pretty sure it jumped time. I need a diagram to show the timing marks and how to get it back in...


see diagrams from autozone.com. Cam sprocket has an "UP" label, but also 2 scribes on the sides to align to upper head surface. The critical part of the job is keeping tension on the side of the belt that is opposite from the tensioner as the tensioner is released onto the belt. The timing marks must be aligned when the job is done.

2bd7a51.jpg
4256a1c.gif To install:

  1. Install the camshaft timing sprocket so that the UP mark is up and the TDC marks are parallel to the cylinder head gasket surface. Install the key and tighten the bolt to 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
  2. Install the crankshaft sprocket so that the TDC mark aligns with the pointer on the oil pump. Install the spacers with their concave surfaces facing in. Install the key. If equipped, install the TDC sensor assembly back into position before installing the timing belt.
  3. Install and tension the timing belt. Use a 6 x 1.0 mm x 25 mm bolt threaded through the cam belt tensioner plate to temporarily hold the tensioner.
  4. Temporarily install the crankshaft pulley and rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise 5-6 turns to be sure the belt is properly seated.
  5. Set the No. 1 piston at TDC for its compression stroke.



WARNING If any binding is felt when adjusting the timing belt tension by turning the crankshaft, STOP turning the engine, because the pistons may be hitting the valves.

  1. Rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise so that the camshaft pulley moves only 3 teeth beyond its TDC mark.
  2. Loosen, then retighten the temporary cam belt tensioner bolt.
  3. If the rear balance shaft sprocket/gear case assembly was removed, perform the following:
    1. If the rear balance shaft was moved, rotate the balance shaft until the 6 x 1.0mm x 100 mm bolt can be installed into the maintenance hole to the scribed line.
    2. Align the notch of the balance shaft sprocket edge with the pointer on the gear case. Install the rear balance shaft sprocket/gear case assembly using a new O-ring coated with fresh engine oil. The balance shaft sprocket should be installed in the TDC position. The pointer on the gear should align with the pointer on the oil pump housing plate.
    3. Tighten the mounting bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).

  4. If the front balance shaft sprocket was removed, perform the following:
    1. Install a suitable and sturdy screw driver or drift through the maintenance hole in the shaft behind the sprocket to hold the front balance shaft.
    2. Install the front balance shaft sprocket and mounting nut. Torque the nut to 22 ft. lbs. (29 Nm).

  5. Make sure the balance shafts and crankshaft are in the TDC position.
  6. Remove the crankshaft pulley, and if removed, install the balance shaft belt drive sprocket.
  7. Install the balance shaft belt, making sure the balance shafts and sprockets are still in the TDC position.
  8. If removed, install the balance shaft belt tensioner and tension the balance shaft belt.
  9. Loosen, then retighten the tensioner adjusting nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  10. Remove the 6 x 1.0mm x 100mm rear balance shaft holding bolt.
  11. Temporarily install the crankshaft pulley and rotate the crankshaft 2 revolutions counterclockwise, stopping at TDC.



WARNING If any resistance is felt, stop immediately and determine the cause.

  1. Recheck that all of the TDC marks align for both the camshaft and balance shafts.
  2. Loosen, then retighten the tensioner adjusting nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  3. Remove the 6 x 1.0 mm x 25 mm bolt used to secure the camshaft timing belt tensioner.
  4. Remove the crankshaft pulley and install the lower cover.
  5. Install the crankshaft pulley, lubricate the bolt threads and both sides of the crankshaft pulley bolt with fresh engine oil and tighten the crankshaft pulley bolt to 181 ft. lbs. (245 Nm). Do Not use an impact wrench.

            I have a 2002 pt cruiser with a 2.4 litre motor. I've tried to install the timing belt but it does not line up with the 4 scrib marks. I do not know how to rotate the cams in the right order for the belt...


            It is typical to have to stretch the belt a tad as you install--needs to be tight across the cam sprockets and from the right cam to the crank gear. Then the tensioner should take up the slack on the other side. 0996b43f80209592.jpg

            0996b43f8020873b.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Proper timing belt routing

            1. Set the crankshaft sprocket at TDC by aligning the sprocket with the arrow on the oil pump housing.
            2. Set the camshafts timing marks so that the exhaust camshaft sprocket is a 1 / 2 notch below the intake camshaft sprocket.
            3. Install the timing belt by starting at the crankshaft. Go around the water pump sprocket, idler pulley, camshaft sprockets and the tensioner.
            4. Move the exhaust camshaft sprocket counterclockwise to align the marks and to remove any slack.
            5. Insert a 6mm Allen wrench into the tensioner opening on the top plate of the tensioner pulley. Rotate the top plate counterclockwise. The pulley will move against the belt and the tensioner setting notch will start to move clockwise. Continue to move the top plate counterclockwise until the setting notch is aligned with the spring tang. Using the Allen wrench, to prevent the top plate from moving, tighten the tensioner lock bolt to 220 inch lbs. (25 Nm). Make sure the setting notch and spring tang are still aligned after the lock nut is tighten. If not repeat the procedure.
            6. Remove the wrench from the belt tensioner.
              NOTE When repositioning the crankshaft to the TDC position, this must be done during the clockwise rotation movement. If the TDC is missed, rotate a further two full turns until TDC is reached. Do not rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise as this will result in improper tensioner settings.
            7. Rotate the crankshaft two full revolutions and verify that the TDC marks are properly aligned.
            8. Check the spring tang is within the tolerance window, if not repeat the previous two steps.

            Fixing the timing belt


            1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the accessory drive belts, crankshaft pulley and the timing belt cover(s).
            2. Temporarily reinstall the crankshaft pulley bolt and turn the crankshaft to TDC of No. 1 piston. The mark on the camshaft sprocket should be aligned with the mark on the inner timing belt cover or the edge of the cylinder head.
            3. With the distributor cap removed, the rotor should be pointing toward the No. 1 mark on the rim of the distributor housing. On 8 valve engines, the notch on the crankshaft pulley should align with the dot on the intermediate shaft sprocket.
            4. Loosen the locknut on the tensioner pulley and turn the tensioner counterclockwise to relieve the tension on the timing belt.
            5. Slide the timing belt from the sprockets.

            To install:
            1. Check the alignment of the timing marks. On 16 valve engines, the mark on the tooth should align with the mark on the rear belt cover.
            2. Install the new timing belt and tension the belt so it can be twisted 90 ° at the middle of it's longest section, between the camshaft and intermediate sprockets.
            3. Recheck the alignment of the timing marks and, if correct, turn the engine 2 full revolutions to return to TDC of No. 1 piston. Recheck belt tension and timing marks. Readjust as required. Torque the tensioner nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
            4. Install the belt cover and accessory drive belts.
            5. If the belt is too tight, there will be a growling noise that rises and falls with engine speed.
