Right go back to basics and you cant go wrong,now bring crank to TDC no1 with spark plug out so you will know when to stop -now the valves for no 1 should both be closed with the valves for no4 open ,or no 6 depending on the number of cylinders ,now drop distributor in with rotor arm pointing to any point in the distributor cap ,and set the points gap , the leads in the dist cap in the firing order ,put the starting handle in and start engine ,if it takes more than three tries then you have just failed you national craftmans exam 1972 when i sat mine ,but the principle is still the same but you dont have a distributor its done on a sensor ,but the valve timing is still the same ,no1 valves closed and the exhaust cam coming around ready to open and no4 with inlet valve just about to open and the exhaust just closed ,although some high reving engines will have both valves open ,this is know as valve overlap ,but if you do as i say then it will start ,the other thing i forgot to mention is that for the exam their was no timing marks at all they were all ground off

How do i correct timing chain and gears installed correctly but #1 cylinder was in wrong position

What you are saying cannot be true. IF the timing chain and gears were installed correctly, the #1 cylinder would be in the correct position. Most likely what you have done is that you have the crankshaft in the wrong position. The crankshaft rotates twice for every rotation of the camshaft. Thus, the crankshaft timing mark will align with the camshaft mark twice - once with #1 cylinder TDC on the compression stroke, and once with the #1 cylinder TDC on the exhaust stroke. You probably have the crankshaft on the exhaust stroke when it should be on the compression stroke. You will need to take the chain off and rotate the crankshaft one full revolution and reinstall the chain. Best guess, IMHO.

there is nothing wrong with the timing chain position . Just a series of sensors that have gone outside the set parameters so if you check and change each one you will clear the faults.

When timing a 2000 2.4 dohc chain .I know to line the 1/8 holes on cams. Do i need to turn crank two rounds to get on a compression stroke. What i did was replace waterpump and chain move so when i tried...

you replaced the lifters? why? the engine is out of time, the cam position determines if its on compression stroke or not. you may have bent valves, if not you are lucky. the cams have pins to hold them in time and then the chain is installed with crank on #1 tdc (keyway up). if all is lined up correctly and it doesnt have compression, you have bent the valves. Water pump replacement is not a job for a DIY.

Hi , If you installed the chain correctly making sure that chain and gear marks lign up it should be fine. When you have engine running. check with timing light. Good luck.

I have a 2000 lincoln ls 3.9 it has a misfire cly 4. I change spark plugs, coils, injector. and the intake seal. It still misfire cly 4. I also check compression it all same i all cly read 120 psi. it also...

Check the fuel injector..some time they give the same code like misfire..if it is good, than go ahead and check the wiring harness if there is a signal coming from it..if no signal..then follow the wire back to the source to see if there a short or open...good luck

Installed new timing chain but car wont start

What the last person said with the additional comment that being even one tooth off can cause it to run bad or not start. I prefer making marks on the gears and chain or belt- whichever you have and transferring the marks by teeth counting to the new belt or chain- fool proof. Did you rotate either the camshaft or crankshaft with the timing chain removed? If your engine is not a zero interference engine than you may have damaged the internal parts. Even on some zero interference engines, you can damage the camshaft by rotating it backwards. Your timing is just plain off or you may have damaged the engine. Sorry, don't know if your is a zero interference or not- I think most are not. I know my Miata is and my Eclipse was not. If it is not a zero interference engine and your marks are way off on your timing- just go ahead and save up at least the money for a new head and send it to mechanic. If it is a zero, and your marks look on- see if the interpretation of the mark could possibly be 1 tooth over on either the cam or crank. Make you go blind staring at it that intently and u can make mistakes.
