Sure, no problem. For safety sake, disconnect battery so it doesn't get "bumped" via starter. And be sure to NOT move cam or crank.

I have a 1994 Toyota corolla changed the timing belt tensioner. trying to set timing, all marks line up except camshaft dots, can't get them to face each other without throwing off all the other marks


If you removed the tensioner and didn't lock the cams and crank down then you have to re-time the engine. It sounds like you let the exhaust and intake cams move.

Remove the spark plugs, put a ratchet on the crank pulley, slowly rotate engine until the cams line up. Once the cams are lined up remove, the timing belt and bring the crank around to the timing mark. put belt back on and let the tensioner go. put plugs back in...see if it'll start.

I am changing the oil pump on a ford fiesta TdCI and I need to know the cam belt timing marks or a diagram on the cam belt


Set the crank to 0 degrees according to the timing marks on the damper, look on the cam pulley for a mark and line it up with the mark on the head. Put the belt on WITHOUT moving the cam or the crank.

You can rotate the cam/crank into a positon that will not move as you remove the old belt, as long as the new belt places the cam/crank in same position as the old belt had them, it don't matter where the timing marks are. Leave your old belt on, rotate to a position that will not move or have tension on belt, (no matter the marks) and replace the belt. Make sure to recheck timing marks after new belt is installed by rotating the crank/cam back to timing marks, or just trust that the belt was replaced without the cam or crank rotated. Easy off, easy on, just make sure the cam/crank are still in time as the old belt had them located. NOTE: timing marks are there in case of a broke belt, or for a car that has jumped time. As long as cam and crank are held in same positon, and car was in time before the procedure, it don't matter where the timing marks are at during belt replacement.

Timing belt limp home mode


If the timing belt breaks the engine will not run! the timing belt is what keeps the crank and cams in "time" if the belt breaks the crankshaft can no longer turn the cams which will not allow fuel to get in, exhaust to get out, or compression to occur.

Pulled timing belt put it all back on now car wont start sounds like its 180 out but it all lines up what would it be


A 1996 Jetta engine is non-interference. This is the 2.0 distributor equipped engine, sometimes called the ABA motor. On rare occasions, non-interference engines may self-damage when the belt breaks, such as the cam shaft may bind etc, but they usually survive. When you installed the belt were you certain that the piston in #1 was at top dead center on the compression stroke, because if it was not, your cam is 180 degrees out (it turns 2x per one crank revolution). Turn the engine over by hand with #1 plug out and your thumb over the spark hole, then check your timing marks.

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.

My timing belt broke on my 1996 Ranger. It's a 2.3 5 spd - Replaced the timing belt, aligned the crankshaft at TDC before teardown and also made tick mark to align it without having to replace timing...


Is it possible that when the belt broke you may have damaged the engine (bent valve). Try advancing or retarding the camshaft sprocket by one tooth and see if that makes a difference.

I have a 2.3 how do i install the timing belt


Align harmonic damper mark at TDC with #1 piston at top. You'll have to remove harmonic damper on front of crank. (You can do it without removing the damper, but it's a real pain in the rear.) This WILL require an industrial strength impact wrench to break the bolt loose. Pull spark plugs. Makes last step easy and you can use a screwdriver to make sure #1 is at top. You'll see tick marks on the crank pulley, the cam pulley and the auxillary shaft pulley. These marks must line up. Use a straight edge (ruler, piece of flat metal stock, etc.) to make sure they're aligned. Pull tensioner arm back and lock it there. Install belt around pullies. Now comes the tricky part. Whne you release the tensioner, the auxillary shaft will rotate at least one tooth off of alignment. Release tension and compensate auxillary shaft postion. You want the marks aligned with the belt under tension. Now using a long wrench, rotate the engine clockwise by turning the crank balancer bolt. After 2 complete revolutions back to TDC, confirm timing mark alignment on the pullies. If they're off, redo it until they're aligned. Good luck.

1997 Mazda 626 timing belt problem


IT SOUNDS AS THOUGH EITHER THE BELT IS A TOOTH OUT, OR HAVE YOU MOVED THE DIZZY WHEN CHANGING THE ROTOR ARM? IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WITH A TIMING LIGHT, THEN YOU CAN CHECK ALL THE TIMING WITHOUT STRIPPING IT AGAIN. BUT IF YOU CHECK THAT THE DIZZY IS TIGHT THEN IT IS A VERY GOOD CHANCE THAT THE BELT IS A TOOTH OUT
