SOURCE: Can't fine an arrow to line up timing marks.

Hi. The older style engines had a metal arrow on the front timing cover. The newer ones may have a small raised area on the timing cover. It might be best to spray the area down with a can of brake kleen and then wipe the area down with a rag.

SOURCE: having trouble on 1995 honda accord timing belts

I had the same problem. Haynes manual don't show it worth a dukey.
If you put the dot on the pully straight up (look closely) you will see actually 2 little studs sticking out. This is where I aligned mine and it fired right up fine.
Now I'm missing the sticker under the hood to give me the specs for ignition timing and if there is any vacuum lines that need removed. Thats what leads me here.

2006 nissan altima 2.5 balance shaft assembly timing

Before I replaced the balance shaft assembly chain on my 2004, the marks on the chain weren't lined up with the marks on the sprocket. When I installed the new chain, I just lined up the marks. (Had to rotate balance shaft independent of crankshaft to do this) Wasn't any noticeable vibration before or after, not really sure why the marks weren't lined up before.
Hope this helps.

Timing marks jeep cherockee 2005 3.7 l

what car, XJ ended in 2001
or the KJ ?
Model years 2002-07), also known as the Jeep Liberty in North America
or grand Cherokee.?

what are you doing
, we can';t guess that here?
CAM timing?
spark timing,?
the Balance shaft?
what country is this an Export jeep.

eg: , i removed my engine heads and......
eg: i removed my coil pack and did not mark the wires.

the 3.7l has no spark timing, its FIXED. by 3 ways.
so....?? what job>?

ill answer now for 3.7L 2005
our 3.7 (usa our)
COPS , that is , 6 coils over plugs. hard wired, so firing order is ECU controlled, 100%
that leaves the pulley marks, (the book shows no adjustment possible)
Ignition timing is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). No adjustment is possible.

so my guess, wild you must be fiddling cams?
are you?
the Timing CHAIN? if yes, say so
or better why not log in to
and read that, then ask questions not clear in the FSM or there.
my guess on cam
is step 11a you get stuck

The idler sprocket must be timed to the counterbalance shaft drive gear before the idler sprocket is fully seated.

I have a 2008 Nissan Altima 2.5SL. It has a strong vibration around 1800RPM. I have had the all motor and transmission mounts checked, transaxle assembly and the transmission replaced (under warranty) with...

the book shows it as a v9 3.5 l with a chain drive years 2002-2012
there is also an altima 2.4 l 1993-2001 another chain driven engine
both have balance shafts
If the chain has been replaced lately , it could be an improperly fitment of the balance shaft
If not I suspect that it could be a worn chain that needs replacing and the vibration is coming from lack of chain tension
the book does not show ant belt driven engines with a balance shaft
at this point I would take it to an accredited professional service center with experience on your engine and have a proper diagnosis done and quote
a new engine is the last thing I would be talking about

The Serpentine belt keeps walking off the Crank shaft pulley by one rib as if the pulley moved away from the engine.. Is this where the harmonic balancer is. If so, is it difficult to change?

Before you change anything,,check and see if everything is in line..Also feel all the pulleys and make sure everything turns ok...If the powersteering pump has been replaced,,sometimes the pulley was not pressed on far enough..If it seem to be the harmonic balancer make sure its not damage and the bolt in the middle is tight...If you remove it..You remove middle bolt,,then you have to use a puller to remove the harmonic balancer itself..unusuall for the harmonic balancer to be bad unless it was hit by something

1st, Nissan had a recall on Crank position sensors for 2002-2006 Altima's. Check with you dealer before you go doing any repairs. You may discover you can get your car repaired at no charge.
NHTSA Campaign ID number :O7V527000
Symptom: Erratic behavior. Stalling and no starts and very difficult to diagnose due to the time frame in which the component actually malfunctions. The warranty should not be limited to the original owner.
I would also need more specifics as to which engine you have so I might assist you in where the location of the sensor is. The Altima had a 4 and a 6 cyl engine offered that year.
