This depends on how you are trying to turn the engine over, have you tried turning it over with the starter? I would use a socket and breaker bar on the front pulley (harmonic balancer) if this does not allow you to turn it over then I wouls suspect that you a seized engine.

I installed a new powersteering pump on a 88 gmc k1500, now it eats serpentine belts cant get the pullies lined up right how do i fix?


I would install a reman pump,never try & remove a pully
The pump wasn't the problem

Your problem is most likely that the crank damper has
worn & moved. The rubber in it is the issue & it is hard
to see any misalignment

1999 ford ranger timing marks 2.5


One is on the crank shaft pully (for TDC). It is a line, scribed on the pully, that alligns to a pointer on the plastic timing belt cover. The second is on the cam shaft pully. It can be accessed by removing the rubber inspection plug on the timing belt cover. The third is on the auxillary shaft (oil pump) and is also accessed through an inspection plug on the timing belt cover.

On the cam and oil pump pullies, the diamond aligns to the diamond and the triangle aligns to the triangle (the pullies have both). These should be perfectly aligned when the crankshaft pully line is at 0 deg TDC. If you can't see the marks through the inspection port while the crank is at 0 TDC, you are 180 degrees out - turn the crank one more time.

How do i time my Golf 1 correctly? it consumes a lot


its tricky enough if your not sure what your doing but ill run you through it. 1. remove top rocker cover and timing belt cover. 2 make up the position of the pully on the cam shaft at the top and the drive shaft at the bottom, this marks are you fail safe incase you cant time the engine. 3 remove the timing belt and pully tentioner, note if your going this far you are as well to replace the timing belt,tentioner and water pump. 4 On the cam shaft at the top if you force them to turn you will see a small indicator mark on the shaft this mark has to line up with the other indicator mark on the housing between the cam shaft and the cam shaft pully, once they line up your top end is timed, mark up the pully incase it moves. 5 on the drive shaft pully there is also markings that have to line up but you can also feel the position of the pully as you turn it, you will feel the piston been forced up and it is timed at top dead centre on cylinder one, which means the the piston has to be at the top just before the point of returning back down, using your feeling as a guide and the markings lined up you will have timing. also mark up this pully, your new marking should be very very close to the fail safe markings you put on at the start. when you have your marking replace the timing belt with the longest distance between pully contact going on first, try not disturb your timing or your hard work will have been for nothing, make sure the tentioner on the belt is tight but not to tight to the point where you ll stretch the belt or snap it, put everything back as you found it and crank the engine, job done, best of luck. hope this helps( rate me on my answer thanks )

How do you remove the front crank shaft pully from a 2003 Hyundai Elantra GT? How do you get the bolt out of the crank shaft pully? Is it right or left handed threads?


it undoes normal way but its tight as its a taper end on crank and no keyway so dont hammer it off with the starter motor and a big bar locked into the suspension.You will have to use a special tool to lock the crank in position ,the other way i do it when i dont have all the tools is to slacken timing belt and then remove the camshaft ,then i undo it with the big bar and the starter motor ,to do it up without the right locking tool i jam a big screwdriver into flywheel by removing the metal plate on the bottom of the bell housing and jam it up ,the torque on this type of arrangement is something like 150 lbs which is a lot if its not tight enough the pulley can move a bit with use and bang goes a piston and valves ,got the teashirt

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.

Antifreeze drips from crank shaft pully area when running.


it's probably not dripping from the crankshaft... it would drip from the water pump just on top of it...

to check if it is done, take a flashlight and spot on top of the water pump. there should be a hole on top of it behind the pulley...

if it is damp, the pump is gone....

if not it might leak from the gasket...

I cannot figure out what the timing marks are on my 1991 Geo Storm 4 cylinder 1.6 SOHC 2+2 motor.


there is a small mark on the cam pully that must point strait down to the mark on the crank shaft timing pully. the mark on the crank pully is a bit hard to see but it is a low spot on the inside area. also lines up with the keyway grove in the pully.

1996 v-6 misfires , i've changed the ignition coils what next


If it is missfireing it wasn't your starter coils for a start. A reason your car will missfire is the timing is out. If it starts and runs your timing maybe a 1/2 a degree out and needs adjusting. It may also be one or more of your ignition leads (from spark plug to coils). Easy way to tell is with a timing light just plug leads in one at a time and start your car if timing lamp doesnot light or lights only as missfires change your leads, check your timing also while you are plugged into number 1 spark plug put timing light onto crank shaft pully should light up as a white dot goes past (bottom pully wheel). If you don't have access to timing light you can manually do it just take number one spark plug out with a small but longish screwdriver(careful not to dint or scratch piston head) crank motor by hand useing bottom pully till number one pot is to the top and look at bottom pully if white dot not at top crank motor till pot comes up second time and check pully wheel again. If still dot not on top your timing is out and you need to adjust it. If you find it to be your timing leave me message and tell me if fuel injected or carbureted and if you have magneto or distributer and I will try to help you
