Is it possible for a 2001 Saturn L series to be 180 degrees out of time? Replaced the timing chain and will not start. Seems to be 180 degrees out of time!!


If you put it 180° out of rotation, you likely bent a valve or chipped a cylinder. Check to make sure you matched the marks on the cam sprockets, timing chain, crank sprockets all where they should be. I replaced my timing chain, and I put the injector rail connections on in reverse !!! It can happen. After I figured that out, it took about 2 minutes straight of holding the key at the start position to get it to fire up.....I didn't bleed the air out of the fuel rail. It has 45,000 miles on it since the replacement.....runs like a scalded dog.... Good luck !!!

Timming chain broke


place no 1 piston at TDC compression stroke. There are procedures for the timing of the balance shafts but if it is only the timing chain I will go to that
Align uniquely coloured chain link with intake camshaft sprocket timing mark-- INT--. ( this will be pointing at the 2 o'clock position)
install timing chain and sprocket as an assembly
align first matching coloured chain link crankshaft timing mark (5 o'clock position)
align the second matching coloured chain link with exhaust cam shaft timing mark--EXH ( at the 11 o'clock position
There is a special procedure to reset the balance tensioner and it is different to the timing chain procedure.

To reset cam shaft timing chain tensioner push piston fully and turn clockwise until locked
Once the tensioner has been compressed ensure the distance from end to end is 2.83 inches . If not repeat the resetting process
vehicles 30.000 miles the tensioner is released when the engine is first started . In vehicles over 30.000 miles manually release tensioner by tapping the plunger
Note cam shaft and crank shaft sprockets bolts MUST only be used once. If you want details on the balancer chain procedure then make a comment in the box
use tension wrench and a degree gauge
cam bolts are tensioned to 63 ft lbs + 30 degrees
crank shaft pulley is tensioned to 74 ft lbs + 75 degrees

I took old timing chain off my 2001 Mercury Marquis 4.6 and something moved, either one of the cam gears or both. I set the timing on the crank shaft to top dead center, but now I can't get the m


what you have to do is clean the chain very well you are looking for 2 links that are different colors than the rest (bronze colored ) count the links between the two rotate the cam 2 12:00 with the dowel pin up or the dot on the edge of the pulley put the chain on with the links on each mark and set the tensioners in place

Where are the timing marks on a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero?


Need to Know what SIZE Engine to give this Internal Technical Info to you. Externaly The Crank Sensor picks it up from Harmonic Ballancer and so there are NO EXTERNAL Marks Nor Does the Manufacturer Provide this Info
There is a 2.4L DOHC Engine and there is a PROCEDURE Rather than MARKS on the 2.4L and Requires you to Fallow EACH STEP EXACTLY and in a Very Long Texting . But On the> 3.4L Engine and INTERNALY on the 3.4L the Marks Alighn With #1 @ TDC CAM Mark is STRAIGHT DOWN and the CRANK MARK is SRTAIGHT UP < This is Internal marks on the 3.4L Engine
GM does not provide timing chain timing marks, or information to perform timing chain service without the special tools shown in the timing chain service procedure

Correct position of the camshafts and cranksharfts for timing of my 99 saturn SL2


the cam shaft sprockets have marks on them that say" front" and have a hole,, the marks should be up and level on the cams,one cam says in on it and thats intake and one says ex on it and thats exhaust cam,,,the sprockets on the cams have a little cirlce at one of the teeth on each cam these face up,,and line up with the different color links on the timming chain,,,the crank sprocket only goes on one way due to the keyway the the key way faces at the 12 clock position and you will see a mark at the same 12 position on the engine block,, there is also a different colored link for the timing mark on the cranksprocket ,actually its two colored links in a row and they go at the 6 clock position on the crank,,,then put the guides on and the tensioner and set the tension

Need timing marks for a 1996 pontiac grand am se 2.4 DOHC


YOU WILL SEE A HOLE IN THE CAM GEAR THAT A 3/8 BOLT WILL FIT INTO. PUT A BOLT INTO THE HOLES OF BOTH CAM GEARS. THEN LINE UP THE CRANK PULLEY KEYWAY AT ABOUT 12 O'CLOCK WITH THE MARK ON THE ENGINE BLOCK.

MAKE SURE TO COMPRESS THE CHAIN TENSIONER AND RELEASE IT WHEN THE CHAIN IS IN POSITION.
