Remove top timing cove, turn crankshaft be hand (using tools) to TDC, and check timing mark on camshaft, here's diagrams for camshaft timing mark's 2.0L SOHC and DOHC, hope this was very helpful.

Battery light comes on while driving. Immediately after water pump/timing belt replacement. Replaced battery and alternator tests good. Intermittent battery light remains?


It sounds as though the belt may be slipping or is not tight enough?

If it's a toothed belt it won't slip - it may not be tensioned enough where it goes around the alternator pulley. They are adjustable.

A smooth non-toothed belt can slip.

Also, check the tightness of the battery leads where they connect to the battery and to the earth - on the bodywork/engine block

When did you last change the timing belt? If the belt slipped a tooth it could cause your issue. I would do a compression test of all cylinders to see if they are good. Any major variation would indicate a possible timing belt slip. Be advised that this is an interference engine and if the belts breaks or slips too far, valve or piston damage can occur.

Cx 7 mazda cel codes P0011 and P0016


Causes may include:
  • Timing chain stretched, or timing belt skipped a tooth due to wear
  • Misalignment of timing belt/chain
  • Tone ring on crankshaft slipped/broken
  • Tone ring on camshaft slipped/broken
  • Bad crank sensor
  • Bad cam sensor
  • Damaged wiring to crank/cam sensor
  • Timing belt/chain tensioner damaged
  1. First, visually inspect the cam and crank sensors and their harnesses for damage. If you notice broken/frayed wires, repair and recheck.
  2. If you have access to a scope, check the cam and crank patterns. If a pattern is missing, suspect a bad sensor or a slipping tone ring. Remove the cam gear and the crankshaft harmonic balancer and inspect the tone rings for proper alignment and make sure they're not loose or damaged or that they haven't sheared the key that aligns them. If they are properly installed, replace the sensor.
  3. If the signal appears normal, then check the timing chain/belt for proper alignment. If it's misaligned, check for a damaged tensioner that may have allowed the chain/belt to slip a tooth or several teeth. Also check that the belt/chain isn't stretched. Repair and recheck

Good question but only way is to get that information from public library's mechanic' books that can be checked out so you could use it to do your timing.

Loss of power after timing belt slipped


I think the timing has not been restored properly, and is one belt tooth out. The original mechanic probably will not agree to this, so you may be stuck with having a different mechanic check it.

I replaced the camshaft position sensor P0340, now the OBD is reading a PO0016


Causes that bring up code P0016 may include:
  • Timing chain stretched, or timing belt skipped a tooth due to wear
  • Misalignment of timing belt/chain
  • Tone ring on crankshaft slipped/broken
  • Tone ring on camshaft slipped/broken
  • Bad crank sensor
  • Bad cam sensor
  • Damaged wiring to crank/cam sensor
  • Timing belt/chain tensioner damaged
  1. First, visually inspect the cam and crank sensors and their harnesses for damage. If you notice broken/frayed wires, repair and recheck.
  2. If you have access to a scope, check the cam and crank patterns. If a pattern is missing, suspect a bad sensor or a slipping tone ring. Remove the cam gear and the crankshaft harmonic balancer and inspect the tone rings for proper alignment and make sure they're not loose or damaged or that they haven't sheared the key that aligns them. If they are properly installed, replace the sensor.
  3. If the signal appears normal, then check the timing chain/belt for proper alignment. If it's misaligned, check for a damaged tensioner that may have allowed the chain/belt to slip a tooth or several teeth. Also check that the belt/chain isn't stretched. Repair and recheck.
Hope this helps

Engine when cold sputters and backfires thru the intake


Sounds like the ignition timing is not right. Check to see if the timing belt has slipped (jumped a tooth) and that the belt is tensioned appropriately. Sometimes another pulley can be loose (such as the water pump having too much play) and this takes tension off the belt allowing slippage; look for any signs of belt scrubbing against the engine casing.

I have error cde PO016 will clear for 20 min. then comes back on


The crankshaft position sensor (CKP) and Camshaft position sensor (CMP) work in harmony to control the spark/fuel delivery and timing. They both consist of a reluctor, or tone, ring which passes over a magnetic sensor, which generates a voltage, indicating position.

The crankshaft sensor is part of the primary ignition system and functions as the "trigger". It detects the position of the crankshaft relays that information on to the PCM or the ignition module (depending on the vehicle) to control spark timing. The Camshaft position sensor detects the position of the camshafts and relays the information to the PCM. The PCM uses the CMP signal to identify the beginning of the injector sequence. What ties these two shafts and their sensors together is the timing belt or chain. The cam and crank should be precisely timed together. If the PCM detects that the Crank and Cam signals are out of time by a specific number of degrees, this P0016 code will set.

Causes may include:
Timing chain stretched, or timing belt skipped a tooth due to wear
Misalignment of timing belt/chain
Tone ring on crankshaft slipped/broken
Tone ring on camshaft slipped/broken
Bad crank sensor
Bad cam sensor
Damaged wiring to crank/cam sensor
Timing belt/chain tensioner damaged

First, visually inspect the cam and crank sensors and their harnesses for damage. If you notice broken/frayed wires, repair and recheck.
If you have access to a scope, check the cam and crank patterns. If a pattern is missing, suspect a bad sensor or a slipping tone ring. Remove the cam gear and the crankshaft harmonic balancer and inspect the tone rings for proper alignment and make sure they're not loose or damaged or that they haven't sheared the key that aligns them. If they are properly installed, replace the sensor.
If the signal appears normal, then check the timing chain/belt for proper alignment. If it's misaligned, check for a damaged tensioner that may have allowed the chain/belt to slip a tooth or several teeth. Also check that the belt/chain isn't stretched. Repair and recheck..

1995 camry has no ignition fire


T.E. Coil looks normal. Replaced cap & rotor while there, new plugs. No joy. Pulled back timing belt cover a bit for a look see and looked normal. Used probe to get T.D.C. on #1 and checked rotor position.....again looked like right position. Loosened distributor and rotated to extreme stop, down (advanced?). Nothing. Rotated to opposite and it fired. Didn't let it run (was like it was 180 off, or wires crossed) as I have been told this is an interference engine, just enough to confirm I'm not completely nuts, and fuel, compression, and spark will do something (thank God). Is it possible the timing belt has slipped a tooth? I have had them go, but always completely, not "slip". Then again, those were for the most part, Ford Escorts with 1.8\1.9 engines (ran a fleet of delivery cars in a past life) and they always let go completely. Of course, the acronym for planned obsolescence is F.O.R.D., but I digress....... Replace the belt? Thanks so much.
