2001 murcury cougar 2.0 vct 4cyl timing belt replacement


You probably need to get a good repair book or a copy of a shop manual. The procedure is to mark the gears before you remove the belt. I counted 26 steps from start to finish if you mark the gears.

When setting the timing marks together distributor always points to #6 not #1 put new timing chain & gears in but cant get it timed right 5.2


Is it possible to turn the distributor shaft 180 degrees and reinstall the dist ?
I am assuming you have spark at the plugs, just not at the right time ?
If the distributor has not been moved, and the rotor points to the wrong wire, you could have put the cam gear in upside down ?

there is a hole in the camshaft gear turn the gear until it lines up with a mark in the cylinder head at the top. then line the crankshaft gear mark up with the mark on the block. sometimes the best way to see the camshaft timing mark is with a mirror.

I am trying to replace my timing belt on my 1992 Toyota Corolla [1.6 liter engine], but I cant figure out how to remove the gears the belt was on ,we already removed the belt because it broke .please give...


Why remove the gears? No need to. Just be sure they are clean of any belt residue. The gears are locked in the correct position for the shafts.
You need to rotate the gears to position the shafts (Crank and Cam) to the correct position before installing the belt. Follow the instructions that should have come with the belt. Usually need to line up some marks on the gears to marks on the engine case for the valve timing to work right.
Pull the spark plugs so you can turn the crankshaft easier (BY HAND ONLY) Mark the wires to reinstall correctly. I did this a long time ago. Seem to remember pointing the mark on one gear to the mark on the other gear. Use a straight edge to line up the two. Dont take this as gospel.
Good luck.

I have a 2000 Mazda 626 4cyl 2.0 liter DOHC engine replacing the timing belt, what are the correct timing marks position on both cam shafts with #1 piston at TDC


I cant find a picture to show you, but if you rotate the engine until #1 is at TDC there should be a timing mark on the crankshaft gear that lines up with a pointer and the cams should have marks that line up also. Most of the time there is a molded line in the cam gear and it lines up with a molded slot in the plate behind the gear at the 12 O'clock position.

Cant find the timing marks on gears for a 1995 ford escort 1.9


The lower timing mark is directly above the key that holds the gear indexed to the crankshaft, it looks like a little blunt pointer and there is a notch cut into the casing behind the lower gear to align it with. The upper timing mark should be in the center section of the camshaft gear it looks like an arrow, there is a dot in the end of the cylinder head to align it with. Hope this helps, let me know.

  1. Drain the cooling system and remove the front cover.

CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.


  1. Crank the engine until the timing marks on the camshaft and crankshaft gears are aligned.
  2. Use a gear puller to removal both of the timing gears.
  3. Before installing the timing gears, be sure that the key and spacer are properly installed. Align the gear key way with the key and install the gear on the camshaft. Be sure that the timing marks line up on the camshaft and the crankshaft gears and install the crankshaft gear.
  4. Install the front cover, and assemble the rest of the engine in the reverse order of disassembly. Fill the cooling system.

How to set timming belt,cant find mark for crankshaft 3.0L


Timing belt removed, static timing was not set before removing timing belt.

[Set Static Timing:
No.1 piston is brought up to TDC before removing timing belt.

Cam gear has a punchmark on face of gear, and this mark aligns with one single tooth. There is a matching punchmark on the Timing Belt Rear Upper Cover.

Facing the cam gear, the mark is to the upper right. There is an 'egg shape' of the timing belt upper rear cover, in this spot. This punchmark is in that 'egg shape', and is close to a bolt hole. The cam gear mark lines up with the Timing Belt Rear Upper Cover, mark.

The crankshaft gear has a punchmark on the face. It lines up with one single tooth. There is a corresponding punchmark on the lower right side. An alignment mark)

Should be a round punchmark on the face of the crankshaft gear. It lines up with a single tooth. Wipe the gear clean, use a little carb cleaner. (NO flames, or sparks nearby, well ventilated area)

Barring you cannot find the crankshaft mark, find the camshaft alignment marks, make sure they are aligned with the alignment, (Punchmark), on the Timing Upper Rear Cover.

Count the teeth in the timing belt. There should be 133 teeth on the belt.

There is 43 teeth in-between the timing mark of the camshaft, and the timing mark on the crankshaft.

(43 teeth in-between the Right Side Camshaft mark to crankshaft mark, 43 teeth in-between the Left Side Camshaft mark to crankshaft mark)

There should be 40 teeth in-between the two cam gears.
