SOURCE: 1997 ford explorer 4.0 sohc how to set timing

There are no timing marks. Timing is done using special tools to hold the crank at top center and a tool to hold each camshaft in position. the cam sprockets are not pinned to the cams. there are also dummy tensioners installed to take up the slack till the tightening is done. Also there are chains at the back of the motor that can only be timed with the motor out of vehical.

SOURCE: How much would it cost

The timing "set" that includes the chain, both sprockets and the tensenior assembly is about $60.00 at AutoZone. the labor to change it all would depend on where you live and where you take it for the work. this repair is one that can be done at any reputable repair facility and it doesn't have to go to the dealer. When I did this for a customer it took me about 2-3 hours total time.

Does 1997 pontiac sunfire gt 2.4 L set it's own timing


No, The 2.4lt quad 4 has a timing CHAIN when it starts to get sloppy the chain must be replaced. As these engines have an internal ignition pack under the valve cover ther is no adjustment. Unless you are an acomplished mechanic I don't suggest you takle this on your own.

Does it have a timing chain or a timing belt


Hello.
In 1997 the Sunfire used 2 different engines.
A 2.4 overhead cam or a 2.2 overhead valve engine.
Both use a timing chain setup.
Hope this helps you along.
Best of the season to you.

Need timing marks 2.4 sunfire after installing water pump


YOU WILL SEE A HOLE IN THE CAM GEAR THAT A 3/8 BOLT WILL FIT INTO. PUT A BOLT INTO THE HOLES OF BOTH CAM GEARS. THEN LINE UP THE CRANK PULLEY KEYWAY AT ABOUT 12 O'CLOCK WITH THE MARK ON THE ENGINE BLOCK.

MAKE SURE TO COMPRESS THE CHAIN TENSIONER AND RELEASE IT WHEN THE CHAIN IS IN POSITION.
