Question about 1994 Toyota 4Runner

Open Question

I changed the timing belt in my 1994 4 runner and now it doesn't run right. I didn't check the marks before I took the old one off (It looked okay). Do you have a diagram? V6 engine.

SOURCE: changing a timing belt

timing is no easy task it has to be perfect ! off one way or the other could result in damaging the valve's so if your going to do this yourself takeyour time check and recheck your marks. most auto zones & advance auto's can print you a diagram.if not then they will sell a hanes repair manual.this would be your best way to go they are about $15 also always remember not to over tighten the timing belt. hope this helps thanks for choosing FixYa.

SOURCE: toyota timing belt

I just did mine last month. same year & eng. you should have a Chilton repair manual, but... The cams R marked. the marks go straight up on each. the crank has to be on TDC on compression stroke. put #1 piston up (front pass side) & feel for air pressure coming out with your finger to assure its on compression stroke. as you apply the belt, w/ the tentioner off, the cam marks will move out a hair & no longer be ligned up with the marks on the timimg cover backing plate. they will each be off about 1/8 away from the marks on the backing plate. some belts are marked with white lines that line up w/ marks on the pulleys. 610-905-4257 Barry

malibluert: YOUR IN LUCK! This series engine is simple and the references aren't hard to find. READY???????
IF you are just trying to reset the belt at the top and have not remover the crank pulley, bring the crank around to Top dead center on the # 1 cylinder,. It will read Zero degrees on the timing mark scale.
Up top, look at the cam gear closely You will see that there are 5 spokes which support the actual gear. Look closer and you will see that one of these spokes has a small hole in it about 3/4th of the way towards the outside of the gear. Position the gear to where that hole is at 12:00 PM. NOW, if you look thorough the hole, you should should see a small notch that the hole should be centered on. If not, move the gear until you can look through the hole and the notch falls dead center. At that point in time, you have the crank ant camshaft in perfect time with each other.
When you put the belt on, make sure that the side which is slack is the tensioner side. You should be able to slip the belt on, matching the teeth with the teeth on the gears to where one side is fairly tight and you can not roll the cam counter clockwise.
IF you are replacing the belt, you have the crank pulley off and you position the woodruff key straight up at 12:00 PM and the procedures are all the same other than that. when you set the tension. A good rule of thumb is to find the longest span of belt, and with your thumb and forefinger twist the belt. if it twists to 45 degrees toward the block, it's perfect. Any more or less, needs to be reset.
I hope my answer suffices. A picture wouldn't be any more clear.
Let me know how you did.
NOTE: This engine does NOT bend valves when a timing belt fails.

Changed timing belt and water pump because water pump went out also changed the spark plugs and now after getting everything back together the car is only firing on two plugs.


I hate to assume anything, so allow me to just suggest a couple of things I would check...
1. Are the plug wires in the correct order? Do you know what the firing order is for your vehicle? Do you know the order is on the block as well? You should consult a chilton's manual for your vehicle.

2. Did you make sure to look inside the boot and be sure the contacts are actually contacting the plug cap? If you used the old wires, you might want to check them carefully for breaks or other damage.

3. Did you think to gap your plugs before you put them in? "Pre-gapped" isn't always right, sometimes they get bounced around a bit in handling.

1996 Honda Accord, we had the timing belt changed. Now it is not running good. Thought it was the distributor. Had it changed out it is still not running good.


Did the old timing belt break? If it did probably bent some valves. And if it didn't break probably off a few teeth on the timing marks

Replace timing belt on 94 dodge stealth 3.0 dohc need to know everything to replace timing marks and route of belt


timing marks are easy to see,(on the top of gears and line up with the metal indents above them) change the water pump it idles on it... you need a cam holder to hold your cam gears in place when changing they will spin when you take off the old belt... it is an easy timing belt for a *** V6...!

Cant time 6vdi dohc 24v


No you can't. The engine is set to time when the belt is put on, the computer adjusts the advance and all that stuff the dist used to do. Did you just change the belt? Dd you line up the timing marks? If it is not running right, take it back apart, one tooth off and you are in trouble. Check the belt tensioner, you should not be able to move that thing with your fingers. Get a new one, change the water pump while you are at it.

How to replace timing belt ,what problems will i expect or ran into.thanks


It is not just replacing the timing belt but getting it back on right, the new one I mean. You need to go out and buy yourself a repair manual for your car. Most parts stores have them for around $20.00. As you could run into something I would not think of but that manual would. I like the Haynes manuals because they do not run so many different years and engines together. Also Haynes manuals has pictures, because in a 1996 the hard thing you will have is to find those marks and you will have to make sure you put that new belt on just right to those marks. If you took the cover off to see the old belt then you just have to remove everything that is in the way to get at that belt. All the belts, water pump and then the work your way to that belt. But mark the old belt before you remove it, so if you do get lost with the new belt well you can check it with the old one and those sets of marks you left. I can not begin to write down everything you need as to replacing that belt here, so get that manual. Hope this helps some and good luck!

Timing belt needs changed


if I had engine number I could supply details,this is the eng model number that is usually on a tag the size of cig pkt,situated in the firewall or inside of bonnet,others are on door pillar. Failing that strip down to the cambelt,see if you can identify marks on cam,crank sprockets and corresponding marks that they align to on block and head.it's good to paint mark the old belt to those marks so you can transfer those to the new belt,it will make timing easier as you have 2 self checks measures. nb:most belts have engine rotation direction printed on it. make sure that idler,tensioner pulleys arent noisey, if model has a silicone tensioner,these are more difficult to set if tensioner pulley swivels to tension...so to give more precise info i will really need engine spec/model no. IMPORTANT:when belt on,timed and tensioned,turn over in direction of engine crank 2 complete revolutions of crank pulley-that is 4 rotations of cam(s).all marks should be aligned(sprockets and marks)not always paint marks on belt though.if not aligned patience needed more than bent valves.

2001 pt cruiser broke timing belt


CHECK AUTO ZONE .COM FOR TIMING PROCEEDURE. I HAVE DONE THIS & IT IS VERY HARD TO GET TIMING MARKS PERFECTLY LINED UP. TOOK ABOUT 3 TRIES. ( CAMS WANT TO MOVE DURING PROCESS.) WHEN TIMING IS JUST RIGHT , IT WILL RUN. MAKE SURE BOTH CAM SROCKET ARROWS ARE POINTING UP. THERE IS A TIMING MARK IN THE VALLEY OF THE EXHAUST CAM SPROCKET TEETH THAT I MISSED.YOU HAVE TO START WITH EXHAUST CAM TIMING MARK JUST BELOW INTAKE CAM SPROCKET TIMING MARK & THEN WHEN BELT IS COMPLETELY ON , MOVE EXHAUST CAM TO TAKE UP SLACK IN BELT. IT WORKS !!!
