Sounds like your IAC (idle air control) motor needs to be replaced. If you are driving on the Interstate/freeway/highway for a bit and then get off, the car dies when your coming to a stop right?

SOURCE: how do you set the

Hi, please explain what you mean, are the cams in the head and your on about setting the timing up or are the cams out of the head and its needs rebuilding.

if so explain what you have done so far,

to put the cams in the head you need to put the seals on either end then rest the cams on the into head then you put the clamps on that bolt the cams to the head and just go round and tighten each bolt up in turn on a bit at a time as the cams will then lower pushing the vlaves down on the valves that are open keep going round the bolts until they are all seated properyl then you need to torque them up

anyway let me know exactly what you mean then ill be able to understand more and can assist you further ok

I believe for your engine the cams are set up on the back (drivers side) of the cams. There are flat spots on the cams that have to be level with each other. I eye ball them. But there is a tool made for this. Expensive though. Like I said eye ball them and once you get the belt on turn it 2 revolutions by the crank and recheck all the marks. If they are still in place you are good to go.

Then how can you tell if a pcm in 98 eclipse is bad

you most likely have a fuel supply or pressure problem
1, a shorted injector, (this caused all the other injectors to stop working or work very inefficiently)
2, the cam sensor (the ECM uses this as a reference in timing the injectors in conjunction with the ICM)
3, the lack of fuel pressure to them (all the many things that can cause this condition)
4, a bad ignition control module ( the computer uses the signals from ICM for a reference to time the injectors as it monitors and changes the ignition timing)
5, a bad crankshaft position sensor ( the ICM is using this to set the ignition timing and to send the reference signal to the ECM)

Looking for the timing marks on a 98 ford contour 2.0L dohc

If you're looking for the classic marks on the crankshaft pulley, there aren't any, because the ignition timing isn't adjustable: it's controlled by the ECM.

If you're trying to set the cam timing, there are no marks on the cam gears. Ford has a special tool that fits on the camshafts to line them up. Then you line up the mark on the crankshaft gear and that is how the cam timing is checked.

I have a 1991 dodge stealth dohc and removed th cas sensor with out marking the old one what is the proper way to install the new one.

Marking does not matter that much because you always need to reset the timing anyway.

Here is a link for crank and cam position sensor replacement:

And here is one for timing:
It is just like any distributor timing except that you have to ground the right test connector, otherwise the ECU will vary the timing based on things like temperature, knock, fuel, etc.

Setting valve timing on dohc 3.4 chev z34 95 model year

There should be a notch or something on both the cam gear and crank gear. Make sure that you have them lined up (preferably up), so the engine is at TDC.

If you were looking for how to set the ignition timing, that is all computer controlled and there really is no distributor to twist. All coil pack ignition modules.
