The cam mark is on the compression stroke of the number one piston must hand turn until pressure builds in number one use a long wooden rod like a dowel and make sure the dowel is longer then your stroke so it does not fall within the cylinder head.keep turning it until it begins to fall again then find the very top of the cylinder by moving it backwards a hair then reinstall timing chain or belt.

Where are the timing marks for a 1998 Nissan sentra gxe


most vehicles have a crank timing mark which sit on the crank pulley,its the big pulley at the bottom of the motor
the cam pulley should also have a mark on the pulley if its belt driven that should line up with a notch on the head or tappet cover
if its chain driven you will need to remove the tappet cover and your cam sprockets will have marks on them that must line up facing each other or facing level with the sides of the head

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.

Out of timing


Is this a four cylinder engine?
If it is, and you are starting from lining up the crank pulley to the zero degrees mark, and then finding the rotor pointing to number 4, you may be on the exhaust stroke of number 1. You know, if you turn the crankshaft one revolution, around to same spot on the crank, the rotor will now be pointing to #1? That's if it is a four cylinder.
Has the distributor been pulled out of the engine block and put back in? Don't know what you are trying to do exactly, but if the distributor has not been disturbed, and its a four cylinder engine, turn the crank one revolution, line up the notch or mark on the crank pulley, and check that rotor is now pointing to number one.

What is the posistion for the timing chain for a 1998 acura tl


Curtis: The Acura TL had two different engines in it. Neither used timing chains.
Settings for the timing belts are as follows: this is on the 2.5 liter.
Before you pull it apart, break the front crank pulley bolt loose.
Line up the white mark on the pulley with the pointer on lower cover.
Berfore you pull the crank pulley, break the cam bolt loose.
Recheck the crank pulley marks with pointer. Remove the obvious to gain access to the timing covers.
NOTE, if you look at the cam gear will have the word "up" should be on the up side. There should be notches cut on opposite sides of the gear which should line up perfectly with the timing cover... You should have a timing belt tensioner still in place before, when you do your initial check.
After you remove the crank pulley and the timing cover, the woodruff key should be at 12:00 PM
You will also see if you look closer, at the gear. a punch mark, above the woodruff kny. There is an arroe cast into the block. This assures you that you have maintained alignment.

On the 3.2 V-6 same scenario. Remove all the **** surrounding your access to the timing covers and belt. After getting the front crank bolt loose, realign the timing marks to bring it to TDC (Woodruff key @ 12:00 PM) In changing the timing belt on this engine, remove the belt tensioner and you should be able to install the belt without removing the gears.
The right (passengers side) cam gear has a notch cut in the outside edge of the gear. There should be an alignment mark just behind it if you have it set fairly close.The drivers side should be the same.On both engines, make sure when you install the belt, the drivers side is ligned up perfectly and the belt is tight between the left side of the sprocket and the crank gear. Run the belt over to the other cam, making sure the cam is still ligned up. the belt without the tensioner will be real sloppy. Get a small clamp you can place to hold the belt in place on the right cam until you have the tensioner in place.
In checking on both of these engines, they are not intereference fit motors, in short, they are not prone to bending valves. Good luck.

Where are the timing belt marks located


dohc h23 engine right? there should be two lines etched into the cam gears that will line up with a little arrow or triangle just below the top of the head under the valve cover cant miss it. also the cam gears should have one of the spokes engraved up which will be aimed at 12 o clock up on the crank there should be for little notches cut into the big pulley one lone mark and three in a group line up that middle notch in the trio with a timing mark just behind the pulley on the block or plastic timing cover goodluck

We just replaced a torn timing belt and crank position sensor on my 03 lancer. the engine will not fire. how do we set the timing points? I cannot find a repair manual for this year lancer anywhere.


With the belt off and the tensioner pulley pushed back, you will need to set cylinder 1 (far passenger side) to top dead center. There is a mark on the block you can see just behind the crankshaft gear that needs to be aligned to the mark on the crankshaft gear. CAUTION NOT TO TURN THE CAM PULLEY TOO FAR IF ANY PISTONS ARE AT TDC, they will contact the piston on this motor. turn the crankshaft gear forward or backward 1/4 turn off of TDC when you move the cam pully. Once this is done, you will need to set the camshaft pulley to a poorly designed mark on the cylinder head. (it is the corner point of the casting for the cylinder head, it forms a triangle at about the 10:00 position when looking at the cam pulley). Install your belt, it will be tight even with the tensioner pulled back so making sure it doesn't cause either of the gears to move off their marks. Once it on recheck the timing marks upper (cam) and lower (crank), release the tensioner, put your other belt on and you're done. http://www.mivec.co.nz/tech/4G9x_Engine_Manual.pdf

How to set the time belt?


4 Cylinder diesel(4JX1) :
1 - Timing mark
2 - Cam pulley
3 - HP Oil pump pulley
4 - Tensioner pulley


suzman_0.jpg

6 Cylinder petrol:
Align crank(C) timing notch mark (1) to oil pump mark.
Align cam pulley(L+R) marks(3) to cylinder head marks
The cam belt has 3 marks, 2 lines and one mark that is actually a row of dots. Align the dots to the crank pulley groove mark(2) and align the other 2 lines to the cam pulley marks. Using a clothes peg to hold the belt to the cam pulleys works wonders to keep it in place while fitting. Please note the arrows on the belt and have them point in the direction of rotation - right to left side of engine
W - water pump pulley
I - Idler pulley
T - Tensioner pulley.

If for some reason you need to realign the cams on each bank :
Standing in front of the car and starting from YOUR left , looking at the cams you should see RE, RI, LI, LE on each of the camshafts.(R for right bank, L for left bank, I for intake and E for exhaust) Right bank camshafts are marked with one dot, left bank with 2 dots on the shaft itself. To align the camshafts to each other each cam shaft gear has a mark on it. Draw an imaginary line between the centre of the camshaft and the centre of the pulley. The alignment mark should be between the two along this imaginary line. The result will be that RI an RE will be at the top of each gear. The same with the left bank.

Trying to find out where marks need to be to time a 1.6 liter 16 valve engine . replacing belt


There is One mark on the crankshaft pulley that needs to point almost straight down (line up mark on pulley with notch on the bottom of rear timing belt plastic cover piece). Both cam sprockets will have a notch stamped into them. these need to be pointing exactly at each other. I believe the rear cam is the intake on these engines and the front is the exhaust. When the notch is at the 3 oclock position on the intake cam, the exhaust cam needs to be at the 9 oclock position (the marks will almost touch each other). Make sure you rotate the engine over using a breaker bas on the crank pulley bolt and double (even triple check) the marks and make sure they stay lined up! This is an interference engine and if you're not lined up, get ready to put a new cylinder head on it. Also be sure to rotate the water pump pulley and line up its marks to keep the belt tensioned.
