The cam gears each have a mark on them. Line these marks up with the marks on the plastic cover.(lower part of the cover between the gears)
There is a mark on the seal cover behind the crank gear. On the crank gear the mark is in the valley between 2 of the teeth and is hard to spot. Double check by using a plastic dowel inserted through the plug hole to see that the no 1 cylinder is on TDC

    Line up cylinder 1 with TDC. You will find the crank sprocket mark hidden between 2 teeth and hard to spot. This lines up with the mark behind the pulley on the seal cover, above the pulley. The distributor drive pulley also has a mark(on the outer rim of the pulley) which lines up with a notch in the lip of the cover to the right. The camshaft pulley mark(also on the outer rim of the pulley) lines up with a notch in the edge of the cover above the pulley. Fit the belt to the crankshaft pulley, then the distributor shaft pulley and then the cam pulley. Finally slip it over the tensioner and recheck the alignment marks.

    Just to put your mind at ease, this is a non-interference engine so if you get it wrong you wont damage anything.

Is a nissan 2.4L DOHC engine an interference fit?


autodata identifies all nissan 2.4 liter engines as interference fit
there are special requirements when fitting the belt so a workshop manual would be a big advantage to do the job right
replace all idler pulleys as the nearings will be at service life as well
if there is indication of oil stains in the covers , replace both cam shaft and crank shaft seals as oil is the major destroyer of cam belts

Having leak in front drive shaft. Have put installed new one and new seal but still dripping slowly.


Hi,I beleave you mean where it gose into the gearbox if so,
then Im affried that you will have to do the job again ,
make shore you clean the the serfices with a brake cleaner to make shore there is no dirt what so ever,before replaceing the cill just smear a tuch of oil on the new seal to make it easyer to slide in,it would be good also if you have a tool socket or something the same size as the cill to put on the cill to tap it home with.
its so easy to damidge the cills when putting them in we have all done it from time to time.
well wish you all the best,hope this was some help.

Replacing a daihatsu terios timing belt


the procedure of aligning all the timing marks before removing the belt will be the same . The necessity of not moving crank and cams without the belt being connected is still relevant. How ever there are some differences as to tensioning the belt and timing balance shafts . The biggest killer of rubber belts is oil so the oil seals (Cams shaft/ crank shaft should be also replaced and hydraulic tensioner if you have one). Idler pulleys do as much work as the belt so replacing them to replace the bearings is also a good move. . To come up to speed as to the differences a workshop manual for your vehicle is strongly recommended.

I have a timing gear upper seal blown, i need to replace myself


lined up all the timing marks before you do anything. get a new timing belt as the old one is contaminated with oil and will fail very soon. When you pull the belt off it will be of utmost importance that you do not rotate the cam shaft at all or you will bend valves. so use something to lock the cam gear while you undo and nuts on the shaft or while removing the gear

1988-1993 ford festiva leaking oil around the crank pulley... could the oil be coming out of timing chain seal... are could it be a the seal on the crank shaft.. if so would i need to removle the engine to...


This sounds like the crank seal, the engine doesnt have to be removed, in order to get to seal is like replacing the ttiming belt, and once in the timing belt i would replace the crank and cam seals, also do the timing belt, and maybe the waterpump, you will need to remove the crank pulley and then the timing covers then align timing marks for timing belt before ou remove it, with timing belt off the crank pulley then slides off the crankshaft and the seal is behind it, the cam shaft gear unbolts and the seal is behind the gear, once the gears are off then you will be able to remove the seals from the engine,heres a few diagrams to help. good luck and i hope this is helpful,60d826b.gifca916fa.gifcb2cb5a.gif

1995 toyota camry leaking oil from behind the timing belt cover. Isn't this a major repair? Is the leak more than likely a camshaft seal?


If you haven't had the timing belt replace (60,000 miles is the suggested service intervale) this is an overlap of having the timing belt replaced.
If the timing belt is not due for replacement and its the cam shaft seal that is leaking. Its a pretty easy fix. Remove the top timing belt cover , and the crankshaft sensor wiring you may have to remove the front engine mount . Set #1 piston at TDC, Loosen tensioner w/ spring slip off belt. **Remove sprocket pull out old seal with a sharp pick. Greese and install new seal make sure its flush with its bore . Reistall sprocket. Slide belt over Cam sprocket tighten tensioner. Install cover and mount (if applicable) Check timing marks by turning crank two revolutions.
** If CamSprocket Bolt is difficult to remove then remove valve cover and use a 21mm wrench to hold the Camshaft while you crack off Cam Sprocket Bolt.
You will see the groves on the Camshaft where you can place a wrench to hold the shaft.
After you replaced the seal replace the valve cover gasket ONLY IF YOU HAD TO REMOVE THE COVER TO HOLD THE CAM WHILE REMOVING ITS BOLT.

This is about as major as it gets.

How to change a timing belt on 91 S10 2.8L v6


That motor has a timing chain, not a timing belt. Replacing it requires removing the water pump, dropping the oil pan, removing the balancer and timing cover. Rotate the crank so the dots on the cam gear and crank gear line up at the 6 and 12 o clock positions respectively. Unbolt the cam gear and remove it and the chain. If you need to remove the crank gear you can use a three jaw puller or something similar to pull it off. Reinstall the crank gear lining up the gear with the keyway on the crank and press it on with the appropriate tool. Install the cam gear with the chain and make sure dots line up again. It may be necessary to remove the valve covers and rocker arms as well to rotate the cam shaft if need be.

Timing engine


I had a 2.4 L engine in a caravan and replace the water pump that was controlled by the timing belt.
I was having the same problem, I called my bother in law to help. The crank shaft has to stay perfectly timing on the low end. The cam shaft marks are set exactly one half of a tooth apart. So when looking at it, The left side cam gear mark is a half a tooth higher then the right side. Then you have to try and slip on the belt . That is the easy part. When letting go of the timing belt tensioner the marks should line up perfectly across from each other. You have to take off the belt again and make sure you keep correct tension on the crank shaft so the mark is not moving when you are putting on the belt. There is a web site call Alldata.com. The web site cost a few dollars but it willl give you a detail instructions on how to time the engine with pictures to guide you. This is the same web site the pro's use.

I hope this has been helpful.

Oh, by the way you are lucky because the engine is not an interferrence type , so you can not damage the valves at least. Since you know the oil pump is out of time , check all the spark plugs again , they are probably oil soaked .

Oil leak on the rotor timing out put shaft


If you mean the camshaft seal, yes, you would need to pull the timing belt and sprocket off, and if you are anywhere near the service interval for the belt, replace it and the water pump (unless the water pump is very easy to service, and the tensioner.  
You will probably need a (gear/sprocket) puller to get the sprocket off and a another type of (seal) puller to get the seal out.  You could probably extract the old seal with a screwdriver, but it's not recommended.  Get a Haynes manual (around $20) before you even contemplate doing this youself. If you haven't done this before, are mechanically inclined. and have all the tools, you will spend about 1/2 a day to do either the cam seal by itself, or the seal, timing belt, tensioner and water pump.  Once you have it all apart, the last three components will only add an hour to the job, and you won't be stranded when the timing belt breaks.
good luck ..ajm
