How do I change timing chain on Toyota corolla 1.6 4 cylinder. How do I find top dead center for cylinder number one

Basically, #1 piston should be all the way up, with the intake valve past opening and now closed and the exhaust valve just about to start opening. Buy a cheap shop manual to insure you get this correct or you will be very sorry.

I have a 2003 mazda 6 with 2.3 i think it might be out of time but i cant find the timing marks on the pulleys

Sir. The only other way to know your on no one cylinder top dead center is to take the numbers of the firing order,
White them down with the first 3 in one colum and the second three firing numbers in a colum next to the first three. The numbers across from each other are called " mating cylinders".
If #1 cylinder is ( example ) next to #6 on your paper, then those two are mating cylinders. Meaning one ( with valve cover/s off) will , when engine in turned over slowly, will be on valve overlap, while its mating cylinder is on
Top Dead Center to fire. In valve overlap, when the motor is turned slowly one way, the exhaust valve will open and when engine is slowly turned the other way, the intake valve starts to open. At that point when either exhaust or intake valve is moving on #6 cylinder valve trane, #1 is at top dead center which will be not even 180degrees out, but top dead center on #1 cylinder. Now your at the firing point of #1, which will coincide with the rotor pointing at #1 plug wire on the distributor cap. In essence, static ( not
engine running ) the rotor bug should be about 17 degrees early in the cap. This makes up for slack in any timing chain and gear slack between the distributor gear to cam gear. This when running put you about 4-6 degrees advanced. Computor models will time it for itself. See example below.
1 - 6
5 - 2
3 - 4
If your timing order is 153624 then use the chart. As you list your order on paper, remember one mating number is firing and it's mating cylinder is on valve overlap. 180 deg out would be
#1 valves " rocking " and no 6 is on compression. When a cylinder is on the compression stroke, valves will not move. ( both closed ). So, write down your timing order, v6 or inline 6, or 4 cyl or 8 cylinder. It don't matter. If you look at the manifold , it will give the timing order, maybe on the head or Internet. Two columns, walla.
Hope that helps get you to true #1 top dead center. This system is the only true way, along with a cardboard timing wheel for the crank if needed , to adjust valves, lifters and know where the engine is at all times.
Hope that helps. Sorry for the detail, engines are really very simple, once you " get the picture ". Don't make it to difficult. Crank turns two times to one revolution of the cam.

How do you reset flywheel timing

I am assuming you removed the distributor? If so identify #1 cylinder in the firing order. It must be at top dead center (TDC) on the compression stroke. The timing marks should be lined up dead on at center. Then, you install the distributor with the rotor pointing directly at #1 cylinder. It is possible to be a gear notch off in either direction. If it is dead on then the engine will start. From there you will need to set the ignition timing with a timing light to correct advance by rotation of the distributor. May be 6 - 8 degrees BTDC? Consult manual for correct advance degrees.

1994 350 chevy diagram firing order whereis number 1 on the cap

dont go by this.. bring the 1 cylinder to top dead center by matching the timing marks on the engine..then take off the cap.. look at where the rotor is facing..thats your 1 plug spot..then the rest follow one at a time all around the top of the cap..1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2..

If the distributor was pulled out how do you determine tdc on a 2003 exterra 3.3

Line up mark on main pulley with indicator, If you have a baffle over the rockers on cylinder number one, you will need to pull off that valve cover to ensure that neither valve is open- the vavle train will be resting on the heel of the cam lobes. This means cylinder number one is truly at top dead center, and distributor can be installed with the rotor in the correct location for factory designated cylinder number 1 location. ( it could fall anywhere, as long as the firing order is in the correct order- it just makes life simpler in the future.)

If one rocker or both rockers are pressing against the valve stems or followers, the engine is 180 degrees from top dead center for cylinder number one so the crankshaft must make one full revolution additional for number one to be at the timing reference top dead center for cylinder number 1 or you can simply position the distributor rotor for cylinder number 2.. This is because the crankshaft makes two full rotations for one full rotation of camshaft or distributor.

If you find you have lined up on cylinder number 2- which is 180 degrees away from cylinder number 1 in the firing order, you should have no problem if you make sure to locate number 1 in the factory designated location and use correct rotation direction when you pug the wires into the distributer cap.

Firing order on distributor

Did you pull the distributor out ? Is it a v-8.. If so rotate your engine and bring #1 cylinder up to top dead center. Pull the distributor off and see if the rotor is over the top of #1 plug wire. It should be on top or straight across to the opposite side which is 180 degrees out. Firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2.

What is the degree setting for a 1977 chevy malibu 305 ( 6?) and which is the number the #1 cylinder?

The timing should be set at 6 degrees before top dead center only for California emission equipped vehicles, and unless the engine code was "CCC" (check the emission label if the vehicle still has one) or had federal emissions then the ignition timing should be set at 8 degrees before top dead center. and 10 degrees before top dead center for high altitude vehicles.

The #1 cylinder is located at the front spark plug on the driver side, and here is a firing order diagram top help assist you.
