SOURCE: 2.0 L Timing Belt Marks

hi if its a twin cam ford engine you wont find marks on the cam pulleys.what you have to do is take off the cam cover and look at the back of the cams you will see slots in them ,what you have to do is you can buy the timing kit for the engine at the main dealers or you can make you own using a flat piece of metal 5mm thick and100 mm long this fits into the two slots at the rear of the cams to lick them in place and th crankshaft pulley mark should be in line also.best of luck.

If the timing belt broke, he should take it to have it replaced because theres more than likely to be bent valves in the head. Heads should be checked before putting another timeing belt on. If there is valve damage, then more than likely there damage to the pistons too.

SOURCE: TIMING BELT MARKS DONT MATCH AFTER ENGINE TURNED OVER

dont worry about that you will have to turn the motor over 40 to 50 time before those timing belt marks line up again if your pulley marks line up correctly thats all you have to worry about

SOURCE: replaced timing belt, but van will not start?

It is possible that this is a zero clearence engine. Meaning that the valves can hit the pistons if the cam timing is off or the timing belt breaks. I would strongly suspect that you have bent valves. This can easily be diagnosed with a compression test. If valves are bent the repair will require at least a rebuilt cylinder head and gaskets. It is also possible that there could be piston damage as well. The reason it is not starting is it has no compression due to bent valves.

The timing belt tensioner failed on my 2000 saturn Ls2 now the timing is off how do i get it back 2 tdc i got new belt n all pulleys but dont want 2 take belt off b4 i know how 2 get the timing back t


Remove Belt.Turn crankshaft pulley mark to line up with mark on housing TDC. Turn camshaft gear mark to line up with mark on head or block housing. More than one mark on cam gear ? If so turn camshaft till number four cylinder inlet and exhaust valves are just rocking this is the mark to use. ( same can be used on a six cylinder engine rocking number six valves ) fit new parts, tension belt, (TIP) now turn engine twice by hand , recheck that timing marks line up . saves a lot of time if you find they don't later.

How do you put a timing belt back in time after it broke?


Well, hopefully the valves were not damaged when the belt broke, If no valve damage was done, get the engine/crankshaft to top dead center, line up camshaft sprocket to timing mark and install belt around pulleys, gears, replace water pump if needed, tension belt if no automatic tensioner is used, try to start to see if it runs and hopefully it will. Might be time for an engine if valve damage was done.

2003 ford ranger need timingmarks my beltbroke


I've never done one on a Ranger, but most timing gears have alignment marks that you line up before you install the belt. Don't forget to replace the belt tensioner while you're at it.

How to install timing belt on 1993 toyota camry 4 cylinder


1993 Toyota 2.2 you have valve clearance,meaning if you broke the belt driving you just broke a belt and NO VALVE DAMAGE. On the cam gear line that dot on top with the mark at the top if the cylinder head it a little dipple.As for the crank just line up the dots.There is nothing confusing turn one at a time or both at a time.

I need to know the marks on the crank shaft and the cam shaft positions when placing the timing belt on and if there is clearance between the top of the piston and the valve. this is for a Totota Camry...


The pistons dont hit the valves on this engine so if the belt broke you should be able to just replace it. I cant remember the timing marks off hand but the crank definatelly has a notch that lines up with a mark on the timing case. I think under the crank gear, I think the cam lines up upright. At least you cant do engine damage if you get it wrong.

I have a 2000 dodge caravan trying to time it dont know how has a 3.0 motor


set the timing mark on the crankshaft to the mark on the oil pump, then set the timing mark on the camshaft to the mark on the alternator bracket/set second camshaft mark to mark on the inner timing belt cover. line up all mark as decribed. be sure before u set anything to bring #1 piston all the way up to top. with belt on turn crankshaft 2 full turns to bring #1 piston back to top if the cams are not lined up correctly loosen belt and start over again until everything lines up correctly. you may have to do this a few times but it will work.
