timing is set by setting the bottom crankshaft's pulleys mark (it's a very small dimple on the engine side of the pulley and is VERY hard to see) - you should line it up at 12 o'clock position (there's a mark on the engine to align it). The top crankshaft's pulley will need to be set so that the 1st cylinder piston is at TDC by aligning its mark (small arrow) (you might need to rotate the crankshaft a full cycle around to its mark to obtain this). Once these are set, place the timing belt in place.
Hello pamgolmon: My name is Roger and i will answer your question. The 2-0 dual cam engine is a interference engine. This means if the engine jumps time at the timing belt. It will bend the valves. As for the timing marks on the camshafts. Their are no marks to be located. To set the timing marks on this engine requires special tools. This makes it expensive for not only the do it yourself mechanic but also the repair shops also. If the valves were bent you must pull the head for the repairs also.
I know this is not the answer you were hoping for but it is the only answer to give. Please rate the quality of the answer as this way we know your answer was correct. Please just ask if you need further help. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
Stage 1 = 15Nm Stage 2 = 40Nm Stage 3 = Plus 90 degrees or quarter of a turn. Good tip is to mark all the bolts after initial torque setting with tip-ex , i.e. all to the front of the car. When you finish they should all point towards the timing belt. This is also a good way to make sure you don't miss one or tighten one twice if you are distracted since it is not a torque setting. New bolts should be used by the way as they are stretch bolts. Timing of cams - remove cam cover and you will see a slot on the end of the cams. Opposite end from belt. You need to slip a piece of 5mm flat bar or a long 5mm allen key into then so that the bar rests on the face of the head. Engine should be a tdc. cheers John
No it will NOT bend valves on this particular engine, if it goes out of
time. I would replace BOTH the timing belt and the drive belt at the
same time, since both are very inexpensive, even from the Ford dealer.
Line up both timing marks on both the cam and crank sprockets in the 12
o'clock position. The marks are very easy to see, once you remove the
timing belt cover. Hope this helps.
