It seems to me that if the belt breaks , even on an interference engine: the valves will slam shut . Maybe it 50/50 chance either way.


belt has to be replaced any way
compression test on the cylinders.. tells you straight away
zero or low compression numbers ..valves bent

in an interference engine OHC or DOHC belt breaks
the cams stop dead and pistons continue to move up and down

non interference there is a gap between pistons and valves

What mark on the cam shaft/oil pump should be used to reset timing


If you can't find any information you may have to do it from scratch. Find tdc on crankshaft, find point where opposite cylinder to number 1 (cylinder 4 on inline 4 engine) is 'rocking' ( exhaust closing, inlet opening) at this point you are close, and should be able to find the correct mark. (probably need valve cover off to see cam and valves moving as you carefully turn camshaft) some engines have a balance shaft driven behind the oil pump. If so there will be marks to line up there too. Can be tricky, eg mitsubishi motor, just lining up oil pump mark may not be right, it's not a direct drive to balance shaft. A pin has to be able to insert into a bolt hole on the side of the block, so maybe have to turn oil pump gear up to 3 times to get right position. Sorry not familiar with your motor.

Drivers side has spark and fuel when using starter. But no fuel / spark when running on the passenger side cylinders? None of the drivers side cylinders fire!


are yous saying engine runs on 3 cylinders, (sure dead slow)?
great facts, so few post have actual facts or tests
but what engine, it's engine issues, which one?
must be v6, (left right bank)
but is it single or twin cam 24valves?
check all fuses first. (always)

lets see... one side has no spark, so did you scan he PCM while cranking for P03xx codes DTC errors. it will show them if you crank for 5 full seconds, and release the key , 90% of time.
and is a KEY fact in diagnosis, no need to fix cars like 1995 and older here. we use scan tools and win,.

left side has spark and fuel but is dead, so its flooding on that side.
right bank has no spark and no fuel.
you meant both sides dont fire. and engine does not run at all.
so what is wrong.
well I check spark first. is the timing good? if not the cam belt slipped. as all do , ignored.
5 min check and bam , OMG timings way off....
or check compression first. i do on all old cars.
for 2 reasons.
1:if compression is way off, the cam belt slipped.
2: if uneven , (done right) you go , gee, is this old car worth a rebuild? 13 years old, IMO , it is. but isuzu parts. hard to get?

do compression on #1 clylinder (or 3) first. if way off. bingo.
5 min work done WOT, wide open throttle.
bingo

line up
3.2 L 6VD1 SOHC V6
3.2 L 6VD1W DOHC V6 (w = 24v)
3.5 L 6VE1 DOHC V6

which one????????

knowing engine, tells the mech, what spark system is there and which of 2 fuel systems used.
see?
does engine have 1 coil pack with 6 lugs, or 6 cop coil packs.
see?

if compression is ok.
and one bank is dry.
that means the injectors are dead on one side.
and that means the PCM is seeing bad CMP sensor data.
some CMP can do that. but no engine stated.
SOme CMP sends camp pulses for all cylinders can can fail on one bank.
but if the cam belt slipped, some PCM go nuts with crazy CMP pulses.
let me explain if you were a PCM and the cam and crank signals.
are in contradiction, do you inject or not? (pretend that)
some do, some dont other guess wrong, or go goofy.

the spark and injections are all timed.
that is why I always check spark timing First.
a 5min job.
the new cars have no spark timing adjustments
and many think that is excuse to throw the tool away
nothing is so far from the truth...
learn this. and win...

Does a 2001 kia sportage have a zero tolerance motor


All the KIa engine that I have listed are interference fit engines
best is to treat all engines as interference fit as that way you will not go astray
when the head is off turn up side down and fill the combustion chambers with water (Valves closed) and if the water runs into the head openings then the valves are bent
always place the no 1 piston on tdc before removing the head or replacing the head
leave the rockers loose so that the cam shaft can be turned with out the valves opening till you get the timing marks to line up

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

On my 1991 mercury capri turbo 1.6 put new timing belt on still wont start my question is. does it matter which way the cams go other than lining the timing marks up


The cams make 2 complete rotations for every 1 rotation of the crank so you could be out of time by 180 degrees.With the valve cover off turn the engine over by hand. As #1 piston comes up on TDC the intake valves should be open and starting to close. As you go past TDC the exhaust valves should start to open. If this is not what is happening in this order then your timing is off. Your engine should be at TDC when the timing marks are lined up with the marker on the engine. Hope this helps.

Replaced the timing belt on a 1990 VW Golf and now it won't start but it will turn over


Most likely the timing is way off. The engine will start when it is in time and when it is 180 degrees out of time. The timing marks on the cam and the crank will line up correctly once when it is #1 TDC and once when it is 180 degrees out of time. The problem happens when you have the Crank at #1 TDC as it should be and the cam is set incorrectly in most cases. If both valves on the head for the #1 are not closed with the intake open and the exhaust closed for the next cylinder in the firing order your cam is not set correctly even though the timing mark appears to be correct. If the previous timing belt broke while the engine was running odds are every valve will need to be replaced because they are bent. VW did not use a no contact engine in this year model which would have locked the valves in the closed position if the belt broke. If this in fact the case you can verify this by doing a compression check on the cylinders. If you have 0 compression on any cylinders you have bent valves. You can also attach an air compressor to a compression check hose and apply air pressure to each cylinder, if you don't get pressure in the cylinder the valves are either bent or not closing properly.

Engine rebuit. Idle has Heavy putt-putting,


You may have the mechanical timing (ie, timing belt) off by a tooth. The engine will run that way, but not all that efficiently. That'd be my first suspicion. To fix it, it'll have to be torn down to where the timing belt is visible, as are the cam and crank sprockets and oil pump housing. Then the timing marks can be aligned to see if they all line up as they should.

Trying to set the timing on this car with a new engine,please help.


timing belt replace v6 engine turn the crankshaft clok wise slowly and make sure that nothing is stoping it for turning, until the key on the mark reach 12 o clok (TDC) the piston no 1 is att the top dead center .if the piston stop before reaching the top dead center ,,,,,one valve or two are open and the cam have to be ajust so dhat valve can close up,,,,,, so after the crank alignement ,the two cam marks at LEFT CAM 2 o clok right cam10 O CLOK ,,,note the belt slack must be on the tensioner side
