SOURCE: 2.0 L Timing Belt Marks

hi if its a twin cam ford engine you wont find marks on the cam pulleys.what you have to do is take off the cam cover and look at the back of the cams you will see slots in them ,what you have to do is you can buy the timing kit for the engine at the main dealers or you can make you own using a flat piece of metal 5mm thick and100 mm long this fits into the two slots at the rear of the cams to lick them in place and th crankshaft pulley mark should be in line also.best of luck.

SOURCE: Vw Transporter 2.5l T5 injector pump timing marks

below the cam gear on the side where your belt snapped is where the V notch that is an upside down cut away on the metal backing plate behind the gear nearest the cylinder head matches up with a cast block with a ball bearing in the middle in the 6 o clock position on the cylinder head. looking at it on the right side it is a cast almost machined straight edge up and down. On the left of the block it is something like C shaped. if you drew a circle and then on the right side cut one third of it off with a straight line, put a steel ball in the middle about 5 mm thick, that is the mark for the engine timing and you need nothing else, no TDC on the Crankshaft etc.

on the back of the fuel pump flywheel there is a key way type notch square looking cast into the wheel. it is about 2mm x 2mm in size.
this gets lined up with the cast aluminium mounting for the injection pump.
there is on the outer most point of the casting that the injection pump in mounted on a horizontal line cast into the very outer most point possible of the casting.
This horizontal line matches up with the key way type notch on the fuel injection pump flywheel.

It still needs to be timed but you wont bend any valves breaking the injection pump.

Sienna. Where can I find marks 8, 9 and 10 marks on timing belt?


position 8 is showing you where the timing mark on the head is in relation to the timing mark on the sprocket--so it is a diamond cast into the head that will line up with 2 marks on the sprocket
for 10 there is a single bar on the head that will line up with a single bar on that sprocket
9 will be a dot on the sprocket that will line up with a series of dots in a line on the housing
belts do have marks as they can be fitted ant where except for the arrow on the back which has to be fitted in the direction the belt will run
the engine is an intereference engine and that means that if you ,move the crank or cam shafts with out first letting the valve adjust right off ,you will bend valves if anything is moved

The timing belt tensioner failed on my 2000 saturn Ls2 now the timing is off how do i get it back 2 tdc i got new belt n all pulleys but dont want 2 take belt off b4 i know how 2 get the timing back t


Remove Belt.Turn crankshaft pulley mark to line up with mark on housing TDC. Turn camshaft gear mark to line up with mark on head or block housing. More than one mark on cam gear ? If so turn camshaft till number four cylinder inlet and exhaust valves are just rocking this is the mark to use. ( same can be used on a six cylinder engine rocking number six valves ) fit new parts, tension belt, (TIP) now turn engine twice by hand , recheck that timing marks line up . saves a lot of time if you find they don't later.

The pistons are hitting the valves due to wrong alignment of timing gears and the timing belt. Align the timing gears and timing belt marks according to the following diagrams.

I was driving on hwy., car died suddenly, so I towed it to my house. I found out timing belt had jumped several teeth. I put new belt on, put it on marks, now my car starts and dies immediatley unle


If the belt keeps jumping, I would say you have a badly worn sprocket or the belt tensioner needs checking, it may need a new tensioner or your procedure for tightening it needs to be checked.
If no mark for the idler, then just put it at the 4 o'clock position, as you are facing it.

Does my 2003 dodge caravan have an interference engine


Not sure but if doing belt yourself I will give you important tips. 1) before removeing T/Belt set engine to TDC nr 1 there should be marks on the crank and cam (s) gears that line up with a mark on the block / head. 2) prior to removeing tension to belt get liquid paper & mark cam gear(s) & crank gear to point on block / head. 3) mark T/Belt to cam(s), crank, balance shaft if fitted. 4) release tension & remove belt. 5) transcribe marks from old belt to new belt & make sure correct amount of teeth. 6) fit new belt so YOUR marks line up. 7) have tensioner suply presure to belt. 8) turn motor twice by hand to make sure pistons no hit valves 9) Make sure YOUR marks line up if YOUR marks line up it has to be right. 10) Very IMPORTANT if spring tensioner lossen locking bolt again to take up extra slack in belt. 11) tighten locking bolt. 12) put back together.

I changed the water pump on a 2003 galant and now it wont start I took timing belt off did i mess up the timing


If you have already turned it over you may need to give it a compression check to make sure you did not bend your valves. Set your timing mark to top dead center and take off your upper belt cover. Check the cam mark to the timing mark (TDC) on the lower cover. That will tell you if the belt is on correctly. If the timing marks check out you may have just flooded the motor . New plugs will assist in starting the motor if they are just WET fouled.

Timing belt snapped


hi from uk the cambelt timing marks for accent 1.3/1.5 petrol are as follows= the cam cog has a hole drilling between the outer toothed and the central securing bolt this hole at TDC number 1 cyl is at top central and lines up with a V cut in the cyl head at rear of cog ? the crank cog at TDC number 1 cyl is a pop mark on both the cog and on thefront face of engine quite noticable ! these line up and are at approx 12 -30 pm when viewed fit new belt from crankcog in anticlockwise ie crank then cam then tensioner HOWEVER! if you are considering just replacing belt and tensioner ? be warned this engine is an interferance engine that is to say if belt fails whilst driving there may/will most probably be damage to the valves (bent) due to contact with pistons so would advise caution and suggest compression test all cyls after fitting new belt and tensioner and before rebuild completely once valves have bent they will not contact pistons again but you will have serious missfire/s and probably back fire up inlet manifold coupled with failing to start if engine is high milage ? consider removal of cyl head and check? de coke and replace damaged or best all valves then engine will have improved performance and more milesin future hope this helps

Cam shaft timming marks 1999 Daewoo 1.6 liter


there is a special tool to hold gears in correct place on some of these models, but you can hold one cam at a time with a spanner then feed belt on exhaust cam then inlet cam gear
get someone to hold gears in place while you feed belt on.
the inlet cam is more prone to turn off mark more than exhaust.
if you have tensioner that needs retaining pin in when installing
you fit belt while aligning timming marks
fit tensioner as last spot to feed belt on with retaining pin in adjuster
get correct tension on belt by turning water pump so that you can flex (turn) belt 90 degrees only just while using finger and thumb
tighten water pump check flex
check all timing marks are correct
remove retaining pin from auto tensioner
turn motor over a couple of turns by hand observing tensioner arrow should hover around V mark and that all timing marks align up again(after one complete turn)
