Camry timing belt


I am assuming you are referring to a 2.2 liter 5SFE engine. If so camshaft timing mark is dot located on forward face of sprocket mid spoke/or a notch on inboard rim of sprocket. locate mark and paint with white paint. Locate timing mark-small raised dot on plate behind sprocket at approx. one o-clock position paint this white for easy reference. Crank shaft sprocket has small notch on inboard rim. paint white for reference. align cam timing marks, then align crankshaft mark with #0 on timing scale. Adjust tensioner and belt is aligned. I recommend changing idler pulleys and water pump when replacing belt as preventative maintenance. Also inspect shaft oil seals and replace as needed. Performing these services now will save time and money in the future.

How to change a timing belt on a hyundai Elantra 1.5 , 1.6 and 2.0 engine


1.5L And 1.6L Engines
  1. Remove all necessary components for access to the timing belt cover, then remove the cover.
  2. Rotate the crankshaft clockwise and align the timing marks so No.1 piston will be at Top Dead Center (TDC) of the compression stroke.
  3. Loosen the tensioning bolt and the pivot bolt on the timing belttensioner. Move the tensioner as far as it will go toward the waterpump. Tighten the adjusting bolt.
  4. Mark the timing belt with an arrow showing direction of rotation if belt is to be reused.
  5. Remove the timing belt.
  6. If defective, remove the timing belt tensioner.

To install:

0900c15280197020.jpgenlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gifFig. Proper pulley alignment for timing belt installation at TDC-Hyundai 1.5L SOHC engines
  1. Align the timing marks of the camshaft sprocket and check that the crankshaft timing marks are still in alignment.
  2. If removed, install the timing belt tensioner, spring and spacer with the bottom end of the spring free. Tighten the adjusting bolts lightly with the tensioner moved as far as possible away from the water pump.
  3. Install the free end of the spring into the locating tang on the front case.
  4. Position the timing belt over the crankshaft sprocket, then over the camshaft sprocket. Slip the back of the belt over the tensioner wheel.
  5. Turn the camshaft sprocket in the opposite of its normal direction of rotation until the straight side of the belt is tight and be sure the timing marks align.
    NOTE If the timing marks are not properly aligned, shift the belt 1tooth at a time in the appropriate direction until they are aligned.
  6. Loosen the tensioner mounting bolts so the tensioner works,without the interference of any friction, under spring pressure. Be sure the belt follows the curve of the camshaft pulley so the teeth are engaged all the way around. Correct the path of the belt, if necessary.
  7. Tighten the tensioner adjusting bolt, then the tensioner pivot bolt to 15-18 ft. lbs. (20-26 Nm).
    NOTE Bolts must be tightened in the stated order or tension won't be correct.
  8. Turn the crankshaft 1 turn clockwise until timing marks again align to seat the belt.
  9. Loosen both tensioner attaching bolts and let the tensioner position itself under spring tension. Retighten the bolts.
  10. Check belt tension by putting a finger on the water pump side ofthe tensioner wheel and pull the belt toward the water pump. The belt should move toward the pump until the teeth are approximately 1 / 2 of the way across the head of the tensioner adjusting bolt. Re-tension the belt, if necessary.
  11. Install the timing belt covers and all other related components.

How to set timing when you relesh tensioner and it changes the alignment postion of pullies 2000 ford ranger 2.5 l


Here is the trick. Align marks. Put the timing belt on the crank shaft pulley first, and after on the overhead cam pulley. Release tensioner and rotate the crank shaft till the timing belt makes two full circles. Try to align marks, you will be at least one tooth off. Align the crank shaft on the mark, and find out how many teeth you are off at the cam shaft pulley. Count the teeth. Remove the timing belt from cam shaft pulley only. Move cam shaft pulley in reverse according to the number of teeth you counted. Make sure the crank shaft pulley is on the mark. Mount the belt at cam shaft pulley.Rotate the belt two circles and check the marks. Repeate this procedure til after releasing the tensioner, and rotating the timing belt two full circles, the mars will be align.

Need to know what the timing marks and locations for replacing the timing belt


Timing Belt Removal & Installation 3.0L Engine To Remove:
Exploded view of the timing belt and sprocket assembly (3.0L engine) 86723255.gif

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the accessory drive belts. Remove the engine mount insulator from the engine support bracket.
  3. Remove the engine support bracket. Remove the crankshaft pulleys and torsional damper. Remove the timing belt covers.
  4. Rotate the crankshaft until the sprocket timing marks are aligned. The crankshaft sprocket timing mark should align with the oil pump timing mark. The rear camshaft sprocket timing mark should align with the generator bracket timing mark and the front camshaft sprocket timing mark should align with the inner timing belt cover timing mark.
  5. If the belt is to be reused, mark the direction of rotation on the belt for installation reference. Mark the direction of travel for the timing belt for correct installation 86723p72.jpg
  6. Loosen the timing belt tensioner bolt and remove the timing belt.
  7. If necessary, remove the timing belt tensioner. Turn the center tensioner pulley bolt until the timing belt has enough slack . . . 86723p73.jpg
    . . . then slide the timing belt off of the camshaft sprockets 86723p74.jpg
  8. Remove the crankshaft sprocket flange shield and crankshaft sprocket.
  9. Hold the camshaft sprocket using spanner tool MB990775 or equivalent, and remove the camshaft sprocket bolt and washer. Remove the camshaft sprocket.
To Install:
  1. Install the camshaft sprocket on the camshaft with the retaining bolt and washer. Hold the camshaft sprocket using spanner tool MB990775 or equivalent, and tighten the bolt to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
  2. Install the crankshaft sprocket.
  3. If removed, install the timing belt tensioner and tensioner spring. Hook the spring upper end to the water pump pin and the lower end to the tensioner bracket with the hook out.
  4. Turn the timing belt tensioner counterclockwise full travel in the adjustment slot and tighten the bolt to temporarily hold it in this position.
  5. Rotate the crankshaft sprocket until its timing mark is aligned with the oil pump timing mark.
  6. Rotate the rear camshaft sprocket until its timing mark is aligned with the timing mark on the generator bracket.
  7. Rotate the front (radiator side) camshaft sprocket until its mark is aligned with the timing mark on the inner timing belt cover.
  8. Install the timing belt on the crankshaft sprocket while keeping the belt tight on the tension side. NOTE: If the original belt is being reused, be sure to install it in the same rotational direction.
  9. Position the timing belt over the front camshaft sprocket (radiator side). Next, position the belt under the water pump pulley, then over the rear camshaft sprocket and finally over the tensioner. CAUTION
    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.
    Rent or borrow the special tool to hold the camshaft sprockets steady . . . 86723p75.jpg
    . . . while loosening the center retaining bolt on the camshaft pulley, then . . . 86723p76.jpg

    Timing belt routing and timing mark locations 86723256.gif

  10. Apply rotating force in the opposite direction to the front camshaft sprocket (radiator side) to create tension on the timing belt tension side. Check that all timing marks are aligned.
  11. Install the crankshaft sprocket flange.
  12. Loosen the tensioner bolt and allow the tensioner spring to tension the belt.
  13. Rotate the crankshaft two full turns in a clockwise direction. Turn the crankshaft smoothly and in a clockwise direction only.
  14. Again line up the timing marks. If all marks are aligned, tighten the tensioner bolt to 250 in. lbs. (28 Nm). Otherwise repeat the installation procedure.
  15. Install the timing belt covers. Install the engine support bracket. Tighten the support bracket mounting bolts to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm).
  16. Install the engine mount insulator, torsional damper and crankshaft pulleys. Tighten the crankshaft pulley bolt to 112 ft. lbs. (151 Nm).
  17. Install the accessory drive belts.
  18. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
