The timing marks are align in the correct position before taking the old belt off. Now you will need to turn each cam & the crank to the correct position with the belt off then install the belt

Have 2001 honda passport just changed waterpump and timing belt. cranks and no start what would be the cause?


When changing the timing belt on a vehicle be sure that the timing marks line up on the camshaft sprockets and the crankshaft sprocket then turn the engine by hand (not the starter) 2 full revolutions (I spin it 4 revolutions to be completely sure) and check that the timing marks still are lined up. While turning the engine if you feel resistance STOP. You may not have the timing correct. Make sure that the spark plugs are removed while doing this because the compression of the engine can make it difficult to turn by hand.

Timing marks are not lining up when turning over the eng


Timing belt or chain?
If you have chain align the dark mark of the chain to gear marks and release the tentioner . after you turn one time the mark wont match to the chain for long time.
if you have belt. the marks are on the dots on the head and block and will match every second turn on crankshaft
after you install belt/chain turn with hand ,don't start till you're sure the piston don't touch the valve .
with chain you can mark a dot on the block and head with marker to see if will come back to the same spot on same time crank and cam but is not accurate .
good luck

Change head gasket/intake gaskets Put back together truck run a little rough. So I mess with distributer cap thinking timings off and truck won't start ??


doing the head taking out the timing belt you need to check 3 times on 3 turns of the engine by hand to make sure the timing lines up with the marking. so that is time up turn. if you have to adjust then turn again if fine turn another time check then another. if it is out you start again until it right 3 times in a row.

Audi afu timing belt timing marks


If you have a dohc engine like i have (2.3i) this is what i did. i could not find any markings on the covers to indicate tdc so i did what i've learned from an "old timer". Remove the no.1 spark plug (cam pully), take a big screwdriver and stick it in the hole until you feel the piston. Turn the engine clockwise (as the motor turn) always keep the screwdriver with one hand you will see and feel the screwdriver moving up or down depending on where the piston sits. When the scredriver start to come up, start turning slowly until you will feel the screwdriver will stop for a second and then it will dip down again. Turn the engine anti-clockwise until you will feel again that slight hesitation, remember it is all about feeling. Once you have that slight hesitation just before the screwdriver wants to move up or down that is your tdc on your sub assembly. Your cylinder head timing pully should have a dot on it. On the cover behind the pully is a cut out about 6mm, line up that dot with the mark and you should have the tdc for your cylinder head. Alternatively if you cannot find any markings do the following. Remove your tapped cover, turn the cam pully until your 2 front lobes of your cam faces upwards like a "v". If it is done correctly your timing belt will go over the pullies with ease.NB!!! It works for me (experience) if this sounds complicated i suggest that you get professional help.

Replace timing belt on 2005 hyundai xg350 v6


When I did a timing chain on my Datsun I set up TDC on number 1 cylinder and then used a dob of paint on each pulley and a fixed point on the engine so that I could make sure everything lined up the same when I changed the chain.

Timing mark alignment for a 1992 dodge stealth dohc v6 24v


Instructions
    • Disconnect the negative cable on the battery. Set it aside. Do not allow it to touch metal. Loosen the tension on the accessory drive belts by moving the tensioner away from the belt or by loosening the bolt in the slider bar to relieve tension on the belts. Remove the belts.
    • 1. Unbolt the air compressor, but do not remove the lines. Move the air compressor out of the way. Remove the air compressor mounting bracket and the belt tensioner with the appropriate socket. Place a drain pan under the power steering hoses, where they are attached to the power steering pump. Unscrew the hoses and move them out of the way. Remove the power steering pump and the belt tensioner for the power steering pump.
    • 3. Raise the Stealth with the floor jack. Support the car with jack stands. Remove the right front wheel using the lug wrench. Remove the right front inner fender panel using the appropriate socket. Remove the crankshaft pulley bolt, and pull the pulley off.
    • 4. Support the engine with the floor jack. Raise the engine slightly. Remove the right engine mount and mount bracket using the appropriate socket. Remove the three timing belt covers using the appropriate sockets.
    • 5. Remove the spark plug wire from the No. 1 cylinder (first cylinder on the driver's side). Remove the spark plug from the engine. Stick the long screwdriver into the spark plug hole. Turn the engine over by turning the crankshaft clockwise, keeping your hand on the screwdriver. When the screwdriver comes up and stops moving, check the timing mark on the crankshaft. If the mark does not line up at the 1 o'clock position, turn the engine over again until you feel the screwdriver go all the way down and come up again. The timing marks should line up.
    • 6. Check the timing marks on the camshaft. The left camshaft (as you are looking down at the engine) timing mark is at the 1 o'clock position. The right camshaft timing mark is at the 11 o'clock position. The marks should be lined up. If not, repeat the process to find top dead center (Step 5).
    • 7. Loosen the tensioner bolt and push the tensioner away from the belt. Tighten the bolt enough to hold the tensioner out of the way. Remove the belt guide and the timing belt. Check that all three timing marks are still lined up.
    • 8. Install the timing belt, working in a counterclockwise rotation, starting at the crankshaft. Work your way up over the right camshaft (looking down at the engine) sprocket, under the water pump pulley, over the left camshaft, then behind the tensioner. Keep the belt taut between the crankshaft and the right camshaft sprocket.
    • 9. Loosen the tensioner bolt, allowing the tensioner to put tension on the timing belt. Turn the crankshaft twice, lining up the timing marks again. If the marks do not line up, repeat the installation process.
    • 10. Tighten the tensioner bolt to 18 foot-pounds of torque. Install the tension gauge halfway between the crankshaft sprocket and the right camshaft sprocket. If the gauge does not read between 46.3 and 68.3 foot-pounds of torque, repeat the tensioning process (Steps 9 and 10). Install the rest of the parts in reverse order of removal. Tighten the crankshaft pulley bolt to 110 foot-pounds of torque.

  8. Ensure that the timing belt rotation arrows are still visible. If the marks are worn off, place new rotation marks on the belt. Timing belt alignment marks DOHC subaru-03-25-6472.gif

  9. Turn the crankshaft using a breaker bar and special adapter socket on the crankshaft. Align the timing mark on the crankshaft sprocket (1), left intake sprocket (2), left exhaust sprocket (3), right intake sprocket (4) and right exhaust sprocket (5) with the notches in cylinder block and timing belt cover.
  10. Paint alignment marks on the timing belt at the crankshaft and camshaft sprockets timing marks. CAUTION
    Do not turn the camshaft sprockets with the timing belt removed. The valves heads will contact each other causing the valve stems to bend.
  11. Remove the lower right idler pulley.
  12. Remove the timing belt.
  13. Remove the upper right idler pulley.
  14. Remove the lower left (toothed) idler pulley.
  15. Remove the belt tensioner.
  16. Hold the sprocket and remove the left intake and exhaust camshafts.
  17. Hold the sprocket and remove the right intake and exhaust camshafts.
  18. Remove the crankshaft sprocket.

  7. Align the timing mark on the crankshaft sprocket with the mark on the oil pump cover. Timing belt alignment marks DOHC subaru-03-25-6472.gif

  8. Align the single timing mark on the right exhaust camshaft sprocket with the notch on the timing belt cover.
  9. When the single timing mark on the right exhaust camshaft sprocket is aligned with the notch on the timing belt cover, ensure that the double lines on the intake camshaft and exhaust camshaft sprockets are aligned.
  10. Align the single timing mark on the left exhaust camshaft sprocket with the notch on the timing belt cover by turning the sprocket counter clockwise (viewed from front of engine).
  11. Ensure that the double lines on the intake camshaft and exhaust camshaft sprockets are aligned when the single timing mark on the left exhaust camshaft sprocket is aligned with the notch on the timing belt cover. CAUTION
    • The camshafts can be rotated independently causing the valves heads to contact each other resulting in bent valve stems.
    • When the timing belt is removed the camshafts will turn to the lowest cam lobe position by the force of the valve springs. Before installing the timing belt the 4 camshafts are in the lowest lift position (valves closed).
    • When the camshafts are rotated to install the timing belts, # 2 intake and # 4 exhaust cam lobes of the left camshafts are held to push their corresponding valves down. In this position, these valves are held in the open position. Right camshafts are held so their cam lobes do not push the valves down.
    • The left camshafts must be rotated from the lowest lobe position to the position where the timing belt can be installed at the smallest possible angle in order to prevent intake and exhaust valve contact. Camshaft sprockets rotation subaru-03-25-6473.gif

    • Do not turn the camshafts in the direction shown in the illustration because the valves will open at the same time and contact each other.
    CAUTION
    If the timing belt alignment is off the mark buy more than 3 teeth, the valves and pistons may have contact.

99 ford contour 2.0 dohc timing belt replacement... i have the alignment tool and blanking plug but which way are the cams turned to align?


Engine Timing Belt/Chain Illustration
Figure 1
fm1069500554000x.pngBefore installing tool. If the belt broke turn the engine so the #1 piston is half way up. This way you will not bend the valves while turning cams. If you feel that the cams are very hard to turn or stops turning then turn crank by hand to lower piston away from valve. Then turn the cams clockwise or counter clockwise slow one at a time too the proper slot position for the tool to fit. Once the cam marks are lined up bring the #1 piston to its TDC.

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)
