these bend valves if belt breaks while running
Align the timing marks on the camshaft gears to the notches on the camshaft cover, using the intake gear mark for the intake gear and the exhaust gear mark for the exhaust gear.
Align the mark on the crankshaft gear with the
notch at the bottom of the rear timing belt cover.

SOURCE: how do i find TDC when set the timing marks on 1990 volvo 740gl

if you know the firing order of the engine and also the position of the no.1 cylinder you are off to a good start.
Remove the plug on the no.1 cylinder and turn the engine until the piston starts coming up on compression stroke, you can fing out if it is on compression stroke by placing your finger or thumb over the spark plug hole, you will feel the pressure under your thumb or finger as the piston starts to come up the bore.
when you can feel that pressure you can remove your thumb etc and stick a medium size screwdriver into the hole making sure you hold it from falling into the cylinder, rest the end of the driver on top of the piston and turn the engine slowly by hand only, (not by the starter) until the piston has come up to the top of the cylinder, now have a look at the harmonic balancer on the end of the crankshaft, there should be markings on it and one marking will have a "0" with TDC above it, line that mark up with the pointer and that will be top dead center

Is a 2000 nissan 2.4 twin cam with a timing chain a interference engine?


There is no reference to it being an interference engine. However it is always advisable to treat all motors as interference motors when setting the timing as that way there will be no bent valves
Always position no 1 piston on TDC compression stroke before working on the chains
That way all timing marks will be aligned or close to alignment when refitting the chain.

I have a 1994 nissan 2.4L pickup.I am currently in the process of changing the timing chain,cam gear and crank gear. In this process I noticed that the keyway on the crank gear is not in the up posit


Same happened to me. Economic way to ensure its at tdc is to remove #1 plug, using a thin dowel rod mark the distance it travels inside spark plug hole. Turn crankshaft slightly until you can measure the #1 piston is at its highest position. You'll be at tdc.

You must remove the timing belt and reset all positions carefully taking care to not bend valves when turning engine. It is already possible you may have bent valves

I changed water pump in 1998 maxima !! Can you help me identify the location of the timing mark on crankshaft sprocket ??


Remove the three bolts retaining the upper chain guides and lift it from the cylinder head.

To allow access to the camshaft sprocket bolts, unbolt the upper timing chain cover and carefully pry the cover away from the cylinder head

Set the number one piston at TDC on the compression stroke by aligning the timing marks on the crankshaft damper.

Fig. 6: The number one cylinder is at TDC when the timing marks are aligned as shown (clikc image for zoom)



Check that the mating marks on the sprockets are aligned as shown in the illustration. If not, the crankshaft should be rotated another 360°.

Fig. 7: It may be helpful to paint marks on the chain and sprockets if the marks are not easily visible



Remove the camshaft position sensor. Mark the position of the sensor before removal to help keep the ignition timing correct.

When I bring the piston to TDC should I see which way the rotor in the distributor is pointing to make sure it is pointing at the #1 plug before moving the distributor


Sorry, but there seems to be something confusing here. With the engine at TDC and the rotor pointing at the #1 position, moving the distributor would achieve nothing more than throwing the timing out. To do ignition timing you heed a timing light and the engine running, then you use the timing marks on the pulley and the front case to set the distributor to the correct number of degrees before TDC as per the manual.

1997 nissan pathfinder timing off. I replaced water pump(behind timing belt). Timing "gears" got moved (two top ones). I don't know how to make sure everything is lined back up correctly.Any ideas?


The cam sprockets should have marks on them (dimples) that should align with marks on the rear timing cover. There should also be a similar dimple on the crankshaft timing sprocket. These will align with their respective marks when the engine is at TDC. The alignment marks are in the following locations as you look at the front of the engine: RH cam sprocket at approximately 11:00, LH cam sprocket at approx 1:00, Crankshaft timing sprocket at approx 4:00 or 5:00. IF you can't find the marks on the cover, put the marks on the sprockets in those approximate positions and set the belt by using a belt tooth count between the marks. Cam to cam should be 40 teeth between the cam marks. Between the LH sprocket and the crank mark should be 43 teeth. You can check TDC by removing your number 1 cylinder spark plug and carefully inserting a long screwdriver and watching the rise/fall as you hand crank the crankshaft into position (which is much easier with the plugs out)
