Audi afu timing belt timing marks


If you have a dohc engine like i have (2.3i) this is what i did. i could not find any markings on the covers to indicate tdc so i did what i've learned from an "old timer". Remove the no.1 spark plug (cam pully), take a big screwdriver and stick it in the hole until you feel the piston. Turn the engine clockwise (as the motor turn) always keep the screwdriver with one hand you will see and feel the screwdriver moving up or down depending on where the piston sits. When the scredriver start to come up, start turning slowly until you will feel the screwdriver will stop for a second and then it will dip down again. Turn the engine anti-clockwise until you will feel again that slight hesitation, remember it is all about feeling. Once you have that slight hesitation just before the screwdriver wants to move up or down that is your tdc on your sub assembly. Your cylinder head timing pully should have a dot on it. On the cover behind the pully is a cut out about 6mm, line up that dot with the mark and you should have the tdc for your cylinder head. Alternatively if you cannot find any markings do the following. Remove your tapped cover, turn the cam pully until your 2 front lobes of your cam faces upwards like a "v". If it is done correctly your timing belt will go over the pullies with ease.NB!!! It works for me (experience) if this sounds complicated i suggest that you get professional help.

At about 55 to 65 mph 1500 to 2000 rpm truck hesitates slight exceleration


I would go with bad COP Ignition Coils

More likely you have several bad all at once

Common problem with ford & lincoln cop coils

No you don't need any codes for that to happen
& the PO 300 codes on those are not always correct.

I have had the fuel gauge code also in my Lincoln Ls &
lots of others.

Just work on the coils & disregard all codes

Not the tps, not the gas pedal, not the tacm on throttle
body.

I have seem a bad battery do some odd things

Upper Engine Seal


3.4 engines are notorious for bad intake manifold gaskets.
if you are going that deep into the engine it is not much more
work to change the head gaskets at the same time, make sure you also replace the head bolts.

My check engine light is on, and my car hesitates when going up on slight inclines and hills. Any idea what it could be?


Take your car to Autozone or Oreillys, they will scan it for free and can sell you the parts it needs. It may be a control for the EGR.

Engine seems to be missing


it sounds right, it is called a light load miss. it occurs mostly at 45-50 mph on slight incline and it feels like a bucking or hesitation. It commonly ocurs when there is carbon tracking on a spark plug porcelin (sp) . note . if the porcelin has carbon tracking so does the plug wire boot. the spark will travel through the carbon track in teh boot after plug replacement causing premature failure of the plug. it is a good idea to replace plugs and wires if this is the cause of your miss.

I had a problem with the brakes on my 2005 GMC that significantly increased the fuel consumption. The calipers for the disk brakes were not moving freely and were causing the brake pad on one side to always contact the rotor. This problem is easily found by checking for heated brakes after a short drive or by coasting to a stop to see if the truck rolls easily without power.
