Timing belt stripped 86 hilux 2.4D / 2l diesel

Completely stripped it is and the positions of course are lost and am getting conflicting reports on the timing positions of the cam shaft, pump and flywheel for refitting the new one. It has two idler wheels ( one is the adjustment, the other fixed and on the passenger side Australian ). Not sure where to go now without some real advice. Thanks

SOURCE: Trying to set timing belt (new )

Be very careful with this timing belt change.
The key setting is to get the crankshaft and camshaft properly synchronized !
I believe this is an "interference" engine. If the crankshaft and camshaft are not set properly the valves will hit the pistons and be bent ! That would destroy the engine.

No you will not hear the valves hitting the pistons - you will hear the engine turning over faster than normal because you have lost compression.
The engine has marks on the gears and pulleys that will align with marks on the engine block at TDC which should be done before the timing belt is removed ! If you have did not do that and either the crankshaft or camshaft has moved, you have a problem. You can get a manual from the library, auto supply store, eBay or a manual seller.

Putting on the timing belt could use an extra set of hands- when you line up
the marks and the engine is at TDC, the injection pump has some spring tension
and will jump back one tooth. this means you have to hold the pump pulley in
place while putting on the belt. so an extra set of hands makes things much

SOURCE: How can I fix the timing belt

There are alignment marks on the cam pulley. As scspriggs states...get a cheap manual. Most show a good picture of the alignment marks, and the correct alignment underneath the plastic cover.

Code P0016 on toyota sienna 2006

code p 0016 refers to crankshaft (CKP) position/cam shaft (CMP)position --bank 1 sensor A---correlation===causes --wiring--CKP sensor ---CMP sensor --mechanical fault
what that means that when the piston is in a certain and reports to the ECM then the camshaft sensor has to report the position of the cam shaft so that the two are in the correct position in relation to each other ( camshfat timing)
could be problem wires , dirty connections or failing sensors
The mechanical fault could be that the camshaft advance /retard operation has failed and throwing the correlation out

If the cam shaft sender goes out will it shut the car down even if no sputtering or no warning and it's running,just cut off like you turned the key off

it will just shut off the engine because the ECM will have no idea of the position of the cam in relation to the piston
The ECM needs to know the exact position of the crank and cam shafts to determine the ignition timing so if one or both go out then the engine stops
If course if the timing belt breaks the same result happens as the cam shaft sensor stops sending a signal to the ECM so the ECM shuts the engine down

Having trouble putting the timing belt back on

belts have no timing marks on the belt
you have to set the timing marks on the cam shaft/s and crank to the correct position, and loosen off the tensioner puller
if it has a hydraulic tensioner you have to push the tensioner all the way back into the body and hold it there as you fit the belt
remember that you cannot turn any thing to get aligmemnt unless you loosen of all the valves ( rockers completely) or you will bend valves. when the belt is off.

Cam bearing is scored due to blockage from debris in the ocv...blockage is preventing vvt control and setting code recommends replacing engine? help!

if the cam shaft is damaged then the cam shaft will have to be replaced
if the shaft is still serviceable then the bearing shells will need replacing
The problem is the blockage in the oil galleys
To do a good job ( professional) the engine will have to be stripped right down and the oil galleys blown out completely after washing in a solutions tank
You will have to get quotes from engine rebuilding shops as to that cost It will be cheaper if you can pull the motor down yourself and then rebuild using any new parts as required
The valve timer unit may be able to be stripped and cleaned out or new units would be the way to go
OK no knowing what is entailed to do a professional job, the next course of action would to be to price a full motor from a wreckers , preferably one that has rear end damage so that there will be no engine damage. This would entail a swap over of motors. Quicker and within the scope of a mechanically minded person
Next would be a fully rebuilt service exchange motor from an engineering shop ( warranty included) and again it is a remove and rebuild operation. again it would be quicker
don't be fooled into thinking that a oil change or an engine flush will do the trick as it will cost you more in the long run

How do i time the cam sencer witrh the crank sencer ?

your question is realy garbled but I think you are asking about the timing of the cam and the crank sensors usually you have to have them both replaced at same time which means you can see the NO1 position on the cam and the position of the crank and thats with the cover off but I found out from another friend that if you go onto YouTube and request How To set timing on the Cam shaft and Crank shaft sensors you will get a video. MAKE SURE YOU SPELL IT ALL RIGHT OTHERWISE YOU WILL NOT FIND IT. Sorry about the Caps but wanted your attention use my spelling. Good Luck

Bmw m42 engine to fit a camshaft sprocket to a camshaft

The M42 and M46 engines have the twin vanos pulleys and require locking tools to lock the crank and cam shafts inot the correct position. There are no timing marks on these as they are floating pulleys- ie they have no key locating the pulley in a specific position on the cam. Unless you make accurate marks during stripping there is very little chance you will be able to get the cam timing right on this engine without the cam locking tool kit.
