Hi, I think you will find that providing the crankshaft, camshaft and injection pump were properly locked when the cambelt was fitted all the fine adjustments are made by the on-board computer as you drive along. If you suspect that the timing isn't correct, get the fault codes read and post them here and I will try to help you further.

This is just my first message, so please don't "rate" it yet unless it really has fixedya :-) If necessary, "add a comment" down at the bottom and tell me what else is wrong. Thanks, D.

2000 mazda protege correct timing mark alignment


Presuming the timing belt has not been removed or has skipped.
If the belt is removed or skipped this is an interference engine, valves and or pistons could be damaged by turning crankshaft, seek professional help.
Turn crankshaft clockwise and align timing marks (see jpg).
Face the marks (I) and (E) of the camshaft straight up, then align the timing marks with the horizontal surface on the cylinder head.
Pulley boss position pin on the crankshaft should be facing straight up.

Looking for a manual for a snap on timing light MT-1261LA


Hi there:
This its a generic instructions about how to work...
1.- Locate the timing marks and the metal timing pointer located on the lower engine pulley. It might be necessary to turn the pulley with a wrench until the marks appear.
2.- Refer to the engine's specifications manual to determine what the correct timing mark is, and mark the proper timing mark on the pulley with a piece of chalk.
3.- Attach the timing light to the engine. The timing light has three cords that extend from the bottom of the light. Two of the cords have colored alligator clips on the end, while the third cord looks like a rectangle with a hole in the middle. Clip the red alligator clip to the positive side of the battery, which can be identified by the "+" sign. Clip the black alligator clip to a clean metal surface. The black clip acts as an electrical ground. Clip the cord that looks like a rectangle around the spark plug wire for the number one cylinder. Refer to the engine's manual to determine which wire is for the number one cylinder.
4.- Disconnect and plug any vacuum lines that are attached to the distributor. A vacuum line can be plugged with the tip of a pencil or golf tee.
5.- Ensure that the timing light's cords are free from the engine's fan, then start the engine.
6.- Point the timing light at the chalk mark on the lower engine pulley and the metal timing pointer, then pull the trigger on the timing light. The timing light will produce a strobe effect. The engine will be properly timed if the chalk mark and the metal timing pointer align with each other.
7.- Adjust the timing, if necessary, by loosening the single bolt that holds the distributor in place and twisting the distributor slightly until the chalk mark and the metal timing pointer are in alignment, then tighten the distributor's bolt and reconnect the distributor's vacuum line.

Looking for timing belt marks on vw 2 liter jetta. car does not want to idle must rev up.


There is no manual adjustment for timing, this is done digitally by using a VAG 1552 scan tool or equivalent. Now if timing mark is all you need just to serve your curiosity then there are a couple.

Set engine to TDC for cylinder #1 by turning the crankshaft until timing mark on flywheel or torque converter aligns with marks on the transmission case.
  • Manual Transmission
Confirm that engine is set to TDC for cyl #1 by checking that the timing mark on the flywheel lines up with notch at inspection hole on manual trans.

  • Automatic Transmission
Confirm that engine is set to TDC for cyl #1 by checking that the timing mark on torque coverter lines up with the edge of the inspection hole on automatic transmission.

Remove upper toothed belt cover. Once removed, you will see the letters O.T. with an arrow on the upper rear toothed belt guard. Check that mark on camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on toothed belt guard. This brings camshaft to TDC for cyl. #1.

It is unlikely that a belt has skipped a cog, but if that happens your engine will run very rough or not operate at all. You might have other issue in the air metering sensors (MAF) which doesn't take account of temperature. That means whether the engine is cold or holt it will always run rough and definitely activate an MIL.

Fixing the timing belt


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the accessory drive belts, crankshaft pulley and the timing belt cover(s).
  2. Temporarily reinstall the crankshaft pulley bolt and turn the crankshaft to TDC of No. 1 piston. The mark on the camshaft sprocket should be aligned with the mark on the inner timing belt cover or the edge of the cylinder head.
  3. With the distributor cap removed, the rotor should be pointing toward the No. 1 mark on the rim of the distributor housing. On 8 valve engines, the notch on the crankshaft pulley should align with the dot on the intermediate shaft sprocket.
  4. Loosen the locknut on the tensioner pulley and turn the tensioner counterclockwise to relieve the tension on the timing belt.
  5. Slide the timing belt from the sprockets.

To install:
  1. Check the alignment of the timing marks. On 16 valve engines, the mark on the tooth should align with the mark on the rear belt cover.
  2. Install the new timing belt and tension the belt so it can be twisted 90 ° at the middle of it's longest section, between the camshaft and intermediate sprockets.
  3. Recheck the alignment of the timing marks and, if correct, turn the engine 2 full revolutions to return to TDC of No. 1 piston. Recheck belt tension and timing marks. Readjust as required. Torque the tensioner nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  4. Install the belt cover and accessory drive belts.
  5. If the belt is too tight, there will be a growling noise that rises and falls with engine speed.
