The crank has a mark for TDC. (white) and the cam gear should have UP marked on it. You want the UP mark UP at the 12 oclock position.(as you are looking at the top pulley) there will be marks at the 3 and 9 oclock positions and these marks line up the the flat portion of the head that the valve cover sits on. While its apart ......replace the timing belt, and replace the pulley, and replace the cam and crank shaft seals, adjust the valves.

Shop says my 2002 Honda CR-V needs to have a camshaft position sensor replaced. Can you tell me where it's located and if I can replace it myself? I have some knowledge from working on my own vehicles. ...


The TDC sensor (aka camshaft position sensor) is located under the same cover as the timing belt. Incidently, the water pump is also driven by the timing belt. The process for replacement of the TDC is not difficult, just involved. Here is a link that I hope you will find helpful; It gives step-by-step instructions with photos on how to change the TDC. This is for a civic, but the setup for the CR-V is essentially the same. If you have high mileage, you will also want to check the condition of the timing belt and water pump while you have everything apart. If you decide to replace the other parts as well, you will need the associated gaskets, timing belt, water pump and belt tensioner. http://www.civicforums.com/forums/7-honda-civic-diys-civic-tech-chat/323984-diy-tdc-sensor-cmp-sensor-replacement-w-pics.html?8caa1db9f40a1e09f200d7c940d8cc64
If your computer will not let you click on the link directly, you can copy and paste it to your address bar.

Good luck and God Bless.

Can I time the engine without taking the bottom pulley off?? If so is the middle mark on the pulley TDC? (1994 Honda Civic DX 1.5liter single overhead cam)


You should remove the Crankshaft Pulley, because you have to remove the Timing Belt Cover to remove the belt, adjust tension, and line up the Timing Marks.

Here is the Service Guide for the Timing Belt on your 1994 Honda Civic 1.5l SOHC Engine:

How to remove water pump form honda civic 1994 ex


Hi:
The water pump is located underneath the timing belt cover, on the drivers side of the engine. To swap the water pump, you need to remove the timing belt cover, timing belt, and the timing belt tensioner. I usually tell people that this can be done in a day, but sometimes not ! Also, all of the other drive belts , such as Air conditioning and the alternator belt all need removed too.

Getting code p1361 on my 99 civic. what is the problem and how do you fix it?


Code P1361 = Intermittent Interruption In TDC 1 Sensor Circuit

Turns out Top Dead Center (TDC) sensor was bad. Yours is too.

This sensor in located behind the timing chain cover on my 2001 civic. You have to take the cover off to get to it. Honda dealer wanted $360 in labor to change the sensor. Because it was in the same the location Honda would have changed my timing chain for no extra labor charge. So I went to the Honda dealer and got the sensor ($56) and went to the auto parts store and got a timing chain, water pump, and new belts. Local mechanic changed all these parts for $160 in labor (others wanted $230). $130 for the sensor and timing chain and $30 more for the pump. I probably could have hacked that timing chain cover off myself but that is what thought would happen. A hack job. And it was time for a new chain anyway. 92 plus degrees outside and the civic is running fine.

Good luck (remember rated this post).

How to change waterpump in 85 honda civic 1.5lt


You must set the car on TDC and remove the Valve cover, crank pulley and timing covers. Loosen the powersteering, AC and alternator belts and put them aside.Drain the coolant. If you are going to reuse the timing belt, mark the exact tooth with whiteout on the cam gear and timing belt so when you put it back you are not off. Loosen the tensioner with a 14mm and remove the timing blet. Use a 10mm socket t oremove the WP bolts. The water pump is located to the right of the tensioner. replace the WP and timing belt. Use a screw driver to put some tension on the tensioner while you tighten it. To put everything back together it's a reversal of the process.

Good luck and I would recommend you atleast get the maintenace and repair manual. 20 bux at any autoparts store.

P1361 TDC Sensor Intermittent Interruption (I got this from Engine-Light-Help.com)
TDC should mean Top Dead Center.
It is the sensor that tells the computer the #1 cylinder piston is at the very top. And therefore, fires the spark plug.

Since the maintenance done above, I believe the the timing marks for the timing belt is not lined up properly. Being off by one tooth will cause this problem.
