There is timing marks on the cam sprockets and on the crank pulley just line these up. Place your timing belt on and your good. you can stop by a local vectra dealer for a diagram of the marks and where they go.

Ive taken all the head bolts out of the head except 2 the ones in the very middle i tried 10mm allan but they fit to loose also tried torque 55 it fits to loose scare im gona strip it am i using the wright...


Ok first of all, Cad's are known for bad head gaskets, especially in the 4.6 motor, so when you do get them off, buy replacement head bolts , the after market ones come with a hex head, but when getting them, take an old one with you to compare ,, some state they are not cut to length,, so make sure and match them up, also,, some need a washer which doesn't come with the new ones most the time, so get those too. Its always advisable to replace the head bolts when changing the gaskets, its unfortunate that cad's use so many specialty tools for their cars , some auto parts stores like autozone and Oreilly's have tools to lend , so check that out, they do have a puller for the cam pulley , take one of the already removed bolts in to them to get what you need for the last 2 remaining bolts, last thing you need is for them to get messed up and halt your job progress. a 10 mm allen is what is called for on the heads, so I don't know what to tell you there, I'm sorry.

How do i change the timing belt?


This is a long process. The good news is you can do it without pulling the motor. THe bad news is you need 2 floor jacks and a set of jack stands to do that. You will need to go to Auto Zone and borrow the Chrysler Harmonic Balance pulley puller as that is the only special tool you should need to do the job. I highly recommend you get the Haynes Repair manual on this vehicle for this job. If that belt broke while the motor was running I will tell you know that you will need to have the head repaired because it will have bent every valve in the head assembly. After jacking the vehicle up and supporting both sides with jack stands you need to put a floor jack under the motor near the outside edge passenger side, Remove the tire and disconnect the lower engine support strut from teh motor then the upper support. After disconnecting and removing the belts remove the intake manifold, power steering pump, and supports then lower the engine several inches to gain access to the Harmonic balance bolt. Remove the bolt then use the special tool and insert to remove the Harmonic Balance pulley. Remove the timing belt covers and front plate that attaches to the upper motor mount arm from the motor, it's a tight fit, Remove the Valve cover and follow the proper removal sequence for the head bolts. DO NOT FORGET TO SET THE MOTOR TO #1 TDC BEFORE starting this job. Remove the spark plugs and lift the head off. (I assume you know to remove the wires and disconnect the radiator lines from the motor before starting.) Remove the remains of the old timing belt, realign the harmonic Pulley, place the head on and follow the bolt tightening sequence to torque it down correctly and align the cam pulley so that #1 valves are both closed and the #3 intake valve (the valve on the left) is open and the other valve is closed which should put the Cam Shaft key guide for the pulley at 12 o'clock. Compress the Timing Belt tension pulley with an allen wrench in the small hole and place the timing belt in place, release the tension arm. Put everything back in place reversing the order you disassembled them in and once everything is back it should start right up. I've done this 4 times on this model vehicle. Takes about a day and a half to get everything done if you can get the head back that fast. You really need the Haynes Manual for the Torque sequence and Torque settings for that head. Being Aluminum it breaks and bends very easy with you don't follow the right sequence. You will need a new Head Gasket, Valve cover seal, front seal and Intake Gaskets (There is one for each cylinder) Most of the nuts and bolts are 10mm, 12mm, and 11mm with a few 14 mm. I recommend sockets and 2 of each wrench with both open and box ends. The main bolt on the balance pulley is a 21 mm.

At 115,000 my 4 cyl is leaking coolant into #4 cyl, no detectable coolant in oil,no oil in coolant. I assume head gasket problem. I need advice and opinion and recommendation of what manual to purchase so...


tricky job ...but ok ..just make sure you lock the cam gears if its 16 valve, sometimes you can use a wine cork if you dont have the tool , just put it between the cam s to prevent it from spinning inward ,,when reassembling after the following, so you can keep timing right while you replace the belt ....make sure you replace the belt dont reuse it...while your in there replace the water pump as well if it runs off the timing belt....its due with 115k....as well as cam seals head gasket valve cover gasket kit...intake manafold gasket..exuast gasket....also it is recommended that you replace head bolts in order to get the best tork spec.....and make sure the timing marks are correct and that your top dead center on the compression stroke #1 cylinder.....since thers no oil in the radiator its probly just a head gasket ..but send the head out have it magnaflexed check for cracks and have it decked ..milded flat if needed..it may be warped just alittle...you never know but after all that work you want to be sure...you cuold also replace front main seal while your in there...and valve seals on the head since its off anyway napa charges about 180.00 to redue the head..goodidea........

First of all, bring your number one piston to top. Number one is the first one from the right (passenger side). There is a mark for this on the front of the belt cover. The timing mark on the crankshaft pulley should be aligned with 0. There will be two horizontal pit marks on one camshaft sprocket and one (a little bigger) on the other camshaft sprocket. These should fit together. Now the timing mark on the face of the timing belt sprocket should be a couple of degrees to the right of straight up. There will be a 5E on the timing belt sprocket. This 5E is what needs to be just to the right of straight up. Tighten everything down and your engine should start.
