The cam timing marks are on the cams and the rocker cover has to come off to see them.
Honda usually leaves enough room for cam cover removal with out removing engine.
However why would the cam timing be out in one cylnder??? unless it was installed wrong and then the engine was put back in, but without seeing the cams you wouldnt know it was out.
If you suspect it due to a backfire, it can also be low ignition voltage, lean fuel mixture due to carb problems or loose intake manifold, and also tight valve clearances or a sticking valve, and again honda dont usually need an engine removal to check valve clearances.
If I remember after the cover bolts are removed, it wont lift straight up, but it will move back or forward and come off.
There is also the possibility Im completely wrong :{(

2008 silverado EGR location on a 5.3 fuel injected v8


Doesn't have a EGR valve ! Has Camshaft Actuator System .
Camshaft Actuator System Description
The camshaft position (CMP) actuator system is used for a variety of engine performance enhancements. These enhancements include lower emission output through exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) control, a wider engine torque range, improved gas mileage, and improved engine idle stability. The CMP actuator system accomplishes this by controlling the amount of intake and exhaust valve overlap. For the 6.0 liter (LY6, L76) and the 6.2 liter (L92) engine, the Park position for the CMP actuator and camshaft is 8.5 degrees before top dead center (BTDC) or 17 crankshaft degrees BTDC. The engine control module (ECM) can only command the CMP actuator to retard the valve timing from the Park position or advance the valve timing back to the Park position. The total range of valve timing authority is 31 degrees camshaft rotation, or 62 degrees of crankshaft rotation. The control range is from the Park position of 8.5 degrees camshaft or 17 degrees crankshaft BTDC, to 22.5 degrees camshaft or 45 degrees crankshaft after top dead center (ATDC).

2007 Cadillac 3.6L srx, check engi, code p00017 crank sensor - replaced, still running rough and giving me a misfire on 1,3&5. Changed plugs, still 1,3&5 misfire - 155000 miles, could it need new coil


P0017 timing chain Chevy Colorado P0017 Case Study Part 1
155,000 miles This is not a DTC for the crank sensor . This is for variable valve timing .
DTC P0017: Crankshaft Position (CKP) - Exhaust Camshaft Position (CMP) Correlation Bank 1
The camshaft position (CMP) actuator system enables the engine control module (ECM) to change the timing of the camshafts while the engine is operating. The CMP actuator solenoid signal from the ECM is pulse width modulated (PWM). The ECM controls the CMP actuator solenoid duty cycle by controlling the amount of solenoid ON time. The CMP actuator solenoid controls the advance or the retard of each camshaft. The CMP actuator solenoid controls the oil flow that applies the pressure to advance or retard the camshafts.
Ignition voltage is supplied directly to the CMP actuator solenoid. The ECM controls the solenoid by grounding the control circuit with a solid state device called a driver. The ECM compares the camshaft position or the camshaft angle, to the position of the crankshaft.

Your a little out of your league on this ! Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop !

• Inspect the engine for any recent engine mechanical repairs. An incorrectly installed camshaft, camshaft actuator, camshaft sensor, crankshaft sensor, or timing chain can cause this DTC to set.
• An actuator that is in the full advance or retard position can cause this DTC to set.
• The presence of DTCs P0008 and P0009 along with P0016, P0017, P0018, and P0019 indicates a possible condition with the primary timing chain and the alignment between both intermediate sprockets and the crankshaft. Or, the crankshaft reluctor wheel has moved and is no longer referenced to top dead center (TDC).
• Observing the desired and actual camshaft angle parameters, with a scan tool before a DTC sets, may help to isolate whether a condition is specific to one camshaft, one bank, or caused by a condition with the primary crankshaft timing.

Model 31G777 Need to know what the timing position is for this engine please ,As stated earlier I have it at 3 o clock it wont start . ideas please


Don't waht your trying to with the 3 o'clock position but crank and cam timing marks align with each other.

Instructions from service manual:

Install Crankshaft and Camshaft

1. Lubricate the cylinder bearing/oil seal with engine oil.

2. Install intake and exhaust valve tappets.

3. Support both ends of the crankshaft, and carefully install into the cylinder.
NOTE: The counterbalance system, if equipped, must be assembled to the crankshaft before installing into the cylinder.

4. Assemble connecting rod assembly to crankshaft.

5. Install the timing gear to the crankshaft with timing mark out. The flange of the gear must face the counterweight link, if equipped.

6. Install camshaft, making sure tappets clear cam lobes. Timing marks (A, Figures 6, 7, 8) must align.

7. On horizontal crankshaft engines, make sure the paddle on the governor shaft (B, Figure 6) is rotated in line with the governor cup inside the crankcase cover.

8. On vertical crankshaft engines, assemble governor gear/oil slinger (B, Figures 7 and 8) to camshaft. Make sure the paddle on
the governor shaft is contacting the governor cup (C).

What does acam or crankshaft sensor do


  • The crankshaft position sensor identifies position of the crankshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM)
  • When not replaced, vehicle could experience no- or hard start, long crank time, misfire, lack of power, excessive hydrocarbons in oil, spark plug fouling, catalytic converter failure, poor fuel economy, CEL/MIL illumination or intermittent shutdown.
  • The camshaft position sensor identifies position of the camshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM)

    Removing head from 250 honda rebel, how do i remove timing chain?


    Hello,
    Your CMX 250 has a single camshaft with removable sprocket. The basic procedure is to turn the motor over so that the Top Dead Center ( TDC ) marks line up on the crankshaft and the motor is on the compression stroke ( both Valves are closed ) When the crankshaft is a TDC the timing marks on the camshaft will line up and be horizontal with the cylinder head surface. Now you can remove the camshaft sprocket bolts and pull the camshaft sprocket off of the camshaft. This will allow enough room to slide the camshaft out and remove the sprocket.

    Be sure that you put the crankshaft in the TDC mark when you re-assemble the camshaft. It is critical that the camshaft and crankshaft are exactly timed properly or you can cause major engine damage.

    Thanks and I hope that this helps.
