Your engine is probably an EJ-DE twin cam 12 valve.

Generally Daihatsu belts have marks on them that line up with dimples on the sprockets for the intial phasing. You rotate the engine to top dead centre on No1 piston and install the belt from there. The cams should be not be putting any pressure on the intake and exhaust valves of No1 when phased correctly.

Tensions for reassembly of head on diahatsu sirion 99 model 999cc


There should be no reason to 'adjust' the timing belt: it is either fitted and working or not fitted..therefore having to replace one? If you do have to replace one, it is not a job for the faint hearted! You will also have to make sure you have a spare car for back-up.. e.g: if you plan to do this job and get driving in short time think again... You need as much room, both visual and physical around the plastic timing cover, you need to ensure the timing cogs are pre marked (with dots) showing what is called TDC (top dead centre) ENSURE THESE DOTS LINE UP PERFECTLY BEFORE REMOVAL AND AFTER RE-FITTING NEW BELT.. apart from that crucial bit.. it's simply a matter of cleanliness and patience.. remember to loosen the belt tensioner prior and re-tighten after fitting new belt.. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN!

How much engine Oil?


The engine oil capacity of a Daihatsu Sirion, 1000 cc Auto, 1999 is roughly 2.5L assuming the sump was drained and new oil filter installed.
This amount will bring the oil level on the dipstick to the upper line.
As a caution, put in 2L initially, then run the engine for a few moments then switch off. After a few minutes recheck cleaned dipstick level and top up as necessary.

I assume you are changing the timing belt. I am a mechanic and although not familiar with your vehicle, you would usually locate the timing mark on the bottom pulley and line this up. Careful not to turn the engine over too hard as pistons can strike valves. then you should look for similar marks on the camshaft pulley[s], and line these up. Then fit belt. This has to be tensiond correctly which is important. Hope this helps. Mike the bike01.
