The cams marks are critical ! That's what the timing is all about. The cams control the valves, if these are not exactly correct it will not run correctly and may cause much damage if the valve are hit by the piston.

99 a4 2.8 audi quattro just put heads on car set timing all timing marks and holes line up ,when turning engine over by hand u can here valves clicking on cam on drivers side head.cam not set right ?


i have a 99 audi a4 2.8 quattro i got the car and the timing belt snapped or somthing idk before i got the car but i ended up swapping the heads from a junkyard i had engine code AHA heads which had severe bent valves i did a compresson test and came back bad and swapped them from a vw passat with ATQ heads got all the head gaskets and all gaskets off ebay...the timing belt making sure everything is lined up correctly is crucial if it looks the slightest bit off on the cams you better do it again there tricky the marks for the cams are under the valve covers on the back side of the heads each cam will have a small square notch the should line up perfectly with the lines if they dont somthings not right on the heads on the flywheel/crankshaft pully..idk what its called theres a mark down there too that lines up with the flywheel/crankshaft pulley and plastic cover ..but i remember i lubed all the cams and valves down with oil before i put the the valve covers back on i remember mine tapped a little bit on first start up but it got quieter and quieter within 5 min of ideling ...also make sure you dont have the timing 180 degrees out i guess i got lucky make sure i think #1 is on compression stroke not exaust stroke

if you hear really loud tapping if it were me i know you not gonna wanna hear this but id pull the valve covers again and make sure 100% positive all marks on cams are perfectly lining up if it looks to be off a tooth you possible could have a bad timing chain tensioner on that driver side

There's a dot on the cam and a mark on the head turn the cam over with a ratchet and socket it should pop into place be sure to line up both cams one on each head and the bottom on the crank there's a mark on the pulley for the belt you should buy the timing belt kit it comes with new idler pulleys and you should also change the water pump while your in there it runs off the timing belt the new timing belt I put on had dots on it to help line up the timing marks

Car runs very bad after replacing gaskets when it ran perfect before just overheated


You may have the timing marks off on the cam and crank shafts.

At 115,000 my 4 cyl is leaking coolant into #4 cyl, no detectable coolant in oil,no oil in coolant. I assume head gasket problem. I need advice and opinion and recommendation of what manual to purchase so...


tricky job ...but ok ..just make sure you lock the cam gears if its 16 valve, sometimes you can use a wine cork if you dont have the tool , just put it between the cam s to prevent it from spinning inward ,,when reassembling after the following, so you can keep timing right while you replace the belt ....make sure you replace the belt dont reuse it...while your in there replace the water pump as well if it runs off the timing belt....its due with 115k....as well as cam seals head gasket valve cover gasket kit...intake manafold gasket..exuast gasket....also it is recommended that you replace head bolts in order to get the best tork spec.....and make sure the timing marks are correct and that your top dead center on the compression stroke #1 cylinder.....since thers no oil in the radiator its probly just a head gasket ..but send the head out have it magnaflexed check for cracks and have it decked ..milded flat if needed..it may be warped just alittle...you never know but after all that work you want to be sure...you cuold also replace front main seal while your in there...and valve seals on the head since its off anyway napa charges about 180.00 to redue the head..goodidea........

I replaced the head gaskets on my subaru forester and now it will not start posibble timing prob


It sounds like you might have it a little out of whack, probably a good thing did it didn't start, you could have messed it up bad. Why did you replace the head gaskets?? Was it overheating? Were the gaskets bad? Did you mark the cams and belt before you took them off? Did you get a new belt? I would pull the spark plugs out, take the rocker covers back off, take the belt off, watch the cams, bring them around to their mark, bring the crank around to it's mark, make sure it is easy to spin, if not, you are hitting something. get the crank and the cams aligned on their marks and put the new belt with the marks on the belt aligned to the marks on the cam and crank. If the belt doesn't have marks, get one that does. Or put the marks on there. Check the old belt and see if it has marks on it. They help a lot. Once you get the belt on there and the tensioner set, spin the engine by hand and make sure it spins free, It should come around to the TDC mark on the crank again and again. Unless you forgot to hook something up, like the coil pack or a couple wires here and there. Check it out, Hope this helps.

Blown head gasket


please read all before starting not to bad to change did you check compression if your sure that's what it is its about 4hr job.start by putting #1 tdc intake side.note where vacuum hoses are can mark with gray or yellow perm marker remove breather all plug wires exhaust manifold then intake manifold remember what bolts in and whats nutted on.remove break booster cross vacuum hose and egr control valve on left rear of intake side remove vale cover ((you'll have to get something to hold tension on timing chain so not to let tentioner come out inside timing chain cover when removing came gear)) remove head bolts only in off order so not to put tension in one area. do not remove cam shaft bolts and do not turn cam shaft at all after timing gear is removed take off head and check piston walls for wear replace gasket and put back in GOOD LUCK

2002 chrysler sebring 2.4l leaking water is it water pump


Yes you are correct the water pump is driven by the timing belt so if it leaks it will run down the back side of the engine from behind the timing belt cover :)
