I'm assuming that you are talking about 1989 Nissan Truck 4WD 3.0L FI 6cyl.

In this models, the Z24i and KA24E engines do not use the pin counting method for finding correct valve timing. Instead, set the timing chain by aligning its mating marks with those of the crankshaft sprocket and camshaft sprocket. The camshaft sprocket should be installed by fitting the knock pin of the camshaft into its No. 2 hole. On the Z24i engine, the No. 2 timing mark must also be used.

Excatly, what is the problem? Adjuts timing procedure?

Getting to timing chain without tearing down engine 2000 dodge intrepid

I assume you're talking about the 2.7L V6. As you're probably aware (having had it apart before), the timing is properly set by aligning the colored links on the primary timing chain with the marks on the crank sprocket and cam sprockets. The only way I know of to see all these at the same time is to remove the timing cover, and you have to tear the engine apart to remove the timing cover.

How do i tell if dist is in time with crankshaft suspect chain jumped

Does the vehicle run at all? If so, it is probably NOT the timing chain. Unfortunately, if it IS the timing chain, you may have already damaged the engine. The only way to validate the integrity of the engine is to perform a compression test to see if you have adequate and fairly even compression across all cylinders. If so, you have not got a timing chain problem. If compression is low on one or more cylinders, then the timing chain is a likely culprit and you will need to tear the engine down to evaluate what repairs will be required.

Having problem putting the timing chain one and

If you have a dohc quad four type engine, if you did not get the chain alignment absolutely correct, chances are that you have severe engine damage if you cranked it over. Both cam gears must be locked while putting chain on and must be perfect (not close) otherwise the first time you crank it the valves will hit the pistons. (did you get the tensioner on correctly?) Don't attempt to start it, tear it down again.
