From memory i know mitsubishi use crank angle sensors on the balancer so im thinking either the rubber in the balancer has shifted slightly or worst case you've worn the crank or timing belt crank pulley keyway. also guessing it turbo your car.

Why is engine knocking?


the serpentine belt is an accessory drive belt --a/c --alternator--power steering--water pump--etc it does not have affect on timing ---if you have an engine knock while running that would more than likely be a "rod knock" "piston knock" from a burnt main bearing,piston wrist pin ,damaged rod --if your timing was off poor running ,misfire,no start ,banging in upper engine valves hitting piston,

How to set timing when you relesh tensioner and it changes the alignment postion of pullies 2000 ford ranger 2.5 l


Here is the trick. Align marks. Put the timing belt on the crank shaft pulley first, and after on the overhead cam pulley. Release tensioner and rotate the crank shaft till the timing belt makes two full circles. Try to align marks, you will be at least one tooth off. Align the crank shaft on the mark, and find out how many teeth you are off at the cam shaft pulley. Count the teeth. Remove the timing belt from cam shaft pulley only. Move cam shaft pulley in reverse according to the number of teeth you counted. Make sure the crank shaft pulley is on the mark. Mount the belt at cam shaft pulley.Rotate the belt two circles and check the marks. Repeate this procedure til after releasing the tensioner, and rotating the timing belt two full circles, the mars will be align.

Location of timimg marks on a 1986 ford ranger with a 2.3 engine


CAMSHAFT TIMING INSPECTION
  1. Locate and carefully remove the access plug from the upper portion of the timing cover. WARNING
    When turning the engine over by hand, ALWAYS rotate the crankshaft in the proper direction of rotation, otherwise the timing belt might jump one or more teeth due to the configuration of the belt tensioner.
  2. Turn the engine CLOCKWISE (in the normal direction of rotation) to set the engine at Top Dead Center (TDC) of the No. 1 cylinder by aligning the O mark on the belt cover with the O mark on the crankshaft pulley. NOTE: If no timing mark is visible through the access cover when the O marks on the crank pulley and cover are aligned, the engine may be on No. 1 exhaust stroke and not the compression stroke (the camshaft is 180°away from No. 1 TDC). If so, the crankshaft must be rotated one full turn to bring the No. 1 piston back to the top and the camshaft around to close the No. 1 intake and exhaust valves.
  3. With the O marks aligned, look through the access hole in the cover to confirm that the timing mark on the camshaft sprocket aligns with the pointer on the inner belt cover. If the belt timing is incorrect, the timing cover and belt must be removed for further inspection, possible replacement and correct installation. For more details, please refer to Section 3 of this manual.
  4. If timing is correct, re-install the access plug. prev.gif next.gif

How to time a toyota corolla diesel 1994


The timing marks are on the car. Line up the dot on the cam pulleys with the line on the head. The Crank-shaft sprocket has a groove and the block has a dot to line up with. Make sure the crank-shaft is at TDC on the compression stroke, not the exhaust stroke. You can do this by removing the spark plug at the #1 piston, and inserting a wood dowel to feel for the top of the piston. It needs to be at the top, not the bottom.
No belt slack betwwen the cam pulleys...all slack should be at tensioner. Check the tension of the timing belt at a top point halfway between the two camshaft sprockets. The correct deflection is 4mm at 4.4 lbs. pressure (2 kg). If the tension is correct, tighten the idler pulley bolt to 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
Let me know if you need any other tips.
Good luck!

ENGINE KNOCK


It's related, The connecting rod pins may have gotten damaged and needs to be replaced. The knock you are getting sounds like the piston slap due to the connecting pins being damaged and the piston is moving around the cylinder walls and connecting rod. When the spark plugs wire was crossed the wrong spark plugs fired while the piston was still on it's way up the cylinder as to having it fire on the way down. This will cause stress to the valve's, piston, connecting pins, crank shaft, and main bearings. In short all the internal lower moving parts to an engine. Good Luck and have a compression test on all the cylinders and the one that is damaged will be the lowest compression reading.

1991 toyota p/u timings not right. If crack is at


If the crank is lined up to the mark, it is at TDC, meaning cylinder number 1 piston is at TDC.

Both cam pulleys should have marks, they just look a little different.
Here are the diagrams to help out.
