Question about 2000 Chrysler Concorde

1 Answer

How do I set the DOHC's timing on a 2000 Chrysler Concorde 2.7? I understand the procedure for the primary timing chain. Crankshaft sprocket (aligning w/oil pump mark) and both intake camshaft sprockets aligned w/colored chain links. WHAT is the timing position for the EXHAUST camshafts in relation to the Intake Camshafts? The camshafts, secondary chains and tensioners have been removed.

    I found the DOHC timing marks diagram showing the secondary chain with a plated link aligning with a dot on each camshaft by logging on to www.autozone.com and searching the repair guide for my vehicle. Included are step by step procedures, pictures and torques. This is exactly what I was looking for. The Chiltons manual doesn't even provide this necessary information in this format.

    I can now go forward and reassemble the rest of this BEAST. I'm helping a friend. My suggestion

There should be plated links on those chains too. There is an index dot in both cams on each head that set at the twelve o'clock position.

    What is the position for the timing chain gears.


    Timing Chain and Sprockets REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 2.3L and 2.4L Engines The following tools will be required to perform this procedure:
    • Camshaft sprocket timing alignment pins - J 36008 or equivalent
    • Camshaft sprocket wrench - J 39579 or equivalent
    1. Fig. 1: View of the DOHC engine "timed position'' - 2.3L and 2.4L engines 86883175.gif
      Fig. 2: View of the SOHC engine "timed position'' - 2.3L engine 86883176.gif
    2. Remove the timing chain guides. There are usually three.
    3. Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle.
    4. Make sure all of the slack is above the tensioner. Gently pry off timing chain tensioner spring retainer, then remove the spring. NOTE: On the 2.3L engine two styles of tensioners are used. Early production engines will have a spring post and late production ones will not. Both styles are identical in operation and are interchangeable.
    5. Remove the timing chain tensioner shoe retainer.
    6. Make sure all the slack in the timing chain is above the tensioner assembly; remove the chain tensioner shoe. The timing chain must be disengaged from the wear grooves in the tensioner shoe in order to remove the shoe. Slide a suitable small prybar under the timing chain while pulling shoe outward.
    7. If difficulty is encountered while removing chain tensioner shoe, proceed as follows:
      1. Lower the vehicle.
      2. Hold the intake camshaft sprocket with a camshaft sprocket wrench - J 39579 or equivalent holding tool and remove the sprocket bolt and washer.
      3. Remove the washer from the bolt and re-thread the bolt back into the camshaft by hand. The bolt provides a surface to push against.
      4. Remove intake camshaft sprocket using a 3-jaw puller in the 3 relief holes in the sprocket. NOTE: Do NOT try to pry the sprocket off the camshaft or damage to the sprocket or chain housing could occur.
    8. Unfasten the tensioner assembly attaching bolts, then remove the tensioner. CAUTION
      The tensioner piston is spring loaded and could fly out causing personal injury. Use care when removing.
    9. Matchmark the timing chain outer surface for reassembly purposes.
    10. If equipped, remove the chain housing to block stud, which is actually the timing chain tensioner shoe pivot.
    11. Remove the timing chain.
    12. Inspect the parts for wear, then replace if necessary. Some scoring of the timing chain shoe and guides is normal. Clean the old sealant off of the bolt with a wire brush. Clean the threaded hole in the camshaft with a round nylon bristle brush. To install: WARNING
      Failure to following installation procedures can result in severe engine damage.
    13. Install the intake camshaft sprocket onto the camshaft with the marked surface showing. Install the sprocket retaining bolt and washer. Use an adhesive compound 12345493 or equivalent on the bolt. Tighten the bolt to 52 ft. lbs. (70 Nm), while holding the sprocket with tool J-36013, J 39579 or equivalent, if removed.
    14. Install tool J 36800 or equivalent, through hole(s) in the camshaft sprocket(s) into the holes in the timing chain housing. This positions the camshafts for correct timing. Fig. 3: Placing the camshaft sprockets onto the marked surface of the camshaft 91063g30.gif
    15. If the camshafts are out of position and must be rotated more than 1?8 turn in order to install the alignment dowel pins:
      1. The crankshaft must be rotated 90°clockwise off of TDC in order to give the valves adequate clearance to open.
      2. Once the camshafts are in position and the dowels installed, rotate the crankshaft COUNTERCLOCKWISE back to TDC. NOTE: Do NOT rotate the crankshaft clockwise to TDC, or valve and piston damage could occur. WARNING
        The side of the timing chain that was marked must be facing outward when installed.
    16. For DOHC engines only, install the timing chain over the exhaust camshaft sprocket, around the idler sprocket and around the crankshaft sprocket.
    17. Remove the alignment dowel pin from the intake (DOHC only) camshaft. Using dowel pin remover tool J 39579 or equivalent, rotate the intake (DOHC only) camshaft sprocket counterclockwise enough to slide the timing chain over the intake (DOHC only) camshaft sprocket. Release the camshaft sprocket wrench. The length of chain between the two camshaft sprockets will tighten. If properly timed, the intake camshaft alignment dowel pin should slide in easily. If the dowel pin does not fully index, the camshafts are not timed correctly and the procedure must be repeated. Fig. 4: Place the timing chain over the exhaust camshaft and around the idler sprocket and around the crankshaft sprocketDOHC engines 91063g31.gif
    18. Leave the alignment dowel pins installed.
    19. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
    20. With slack removed from chain between intake camshaft sprocket (camshaft sprocket for SOHC engines) and crankshaft sprocket, the timing marks on the crankshaft and the cylinder block should be aligned. If marks are not aligned, move the chain one tooth forward or rearward, remove the slack and recheck the marks.
    21. If equipped, tighten the chain housing to block stud. The stud is installed under the timing chain. Tighten to 19 ft. lbs. (26 Nm).
    22. For vehicles through 1991, reload timing chain tensioner assembly to its "zero'' position as follows:
      1. Assemble restraint cylinder, spring and nylon plug into plunger. Index slot in restraint cylinder with peg in plunger. While rotating the restraint cylinder clockwise, push the restraint cylinder into the plunger until it bottoms. Keep rotating the restraint cylinder clockwise but allow the spring to push it out of the plunger. The pin in the plunger will lock the restraint in the loaded position.
      2. Install tool J-36589 or equivalent, onto plunger assembly.
      3. Install plunger assembly into tensioner body with the long end toward the crankshaft when installed.
    23. For 1992-98 vehicles, reload timing chain tensioner assembly to its "zero'' position as follows:
      1. Form a keeper from a piece of heavy gauge wire. See the accompanying figure.
      2. Apply slight force on the tensioner blade to compress the plunger.
      3. Insert a small prybar into the reset access hole, then pry the racket pawl away from the ratchet teeth while forcing the plunger completely in the hole.
      4. Install the keeper between the access hole and the blade. Fig. 5: View of reloading the timing chain tensioner assembly to its "zero'' position - 1992-98 vehicles 86883177.gif
    24. Install the tensioner assembly to the chain housing. Recheck the plunger assembly installation. It is correctly installed when the long end is toward the crankshaft.
    25. Install and tighten timing chain tensioner bolts. Tighten to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
    26. Install the tensioner shoe and tensioner shoe retainer. Remove the special tool J-36589, then squeeze the plunger assembly into the tensioner body to unload the plunger assembly.
    27. Lower vehicle enough to reach and remove the alignment dowel pins.

    I have a 99 dodge intrepid that threw a rod and my father-in-law and I have been trying to time the car for a year now. We get number one piston up but the mark on the oil pump doesnt line up with the mark...


    I'm not sure what you may be "doing wrong", but here is the manufacturer procedure for aligning the timing marks.
    d753c93.gif
    98f82f3.gif
    ^Refer to this diagram during step 12.
    046beb2.gif
    ^Refer to this diagram during step 13.
    95add8f.gif
    ^Refer to this diagram for step 19.

    1. Align crankshaft sprocket timing mark to the mark on oil pump housing. NOTE: Lubricate timing chain and guides with engine oil before installation.
    2. Place left side primary chain sprocket onto the chain so that the timing mark is located in-between the two (plated) timing links.
    3. Lower the primary chain with left side sprocket through the left cylinder head opening. NOTE: The camshaft sprockets can be allowed to float on the camshaft hub during installation.
    4. Loosely position left side camshaft sprocket over camshaft hub.
    5. Align timing (plated) link to the crankshaft sprocket timing mark.
    6. Position primary chain onto water pump drive sprocket.
    7. Align right camshaft sprocket timing mark to the timing (plated) link on the timing chain and loosely position over camshaft hub.
    8. Verify that all chain timing (plated) links are properly aligned to the timing marks on all sprockets.
    9. Install left side lower chain guide and tensioner arm. Tighten attaching bolts to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.). NOTE: Inspect oil ring on chain guide access plug before installing. Replace O-ring as necessary.
    10. Install chain guide access plug to left side cylinder head. Tighten plug to 20 Nm (15 ft. lbs.)
    11. NOTE:
    To reset the primary timing chain tensioner, engine oil will first need to be purged from the tensioner.
    12. Purge oil from timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
    a) Place the check ball end of tensioner into the shallow end of Special Tool 8186.
    b) Using hand pressure, slowly depress tensioner until oil is purged from tensioner.
    13. Reset timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
    a) Position cylinder plunger into the deeper end of Special Tool 8186.
    b) Apply a downward force until tensioner is reset. NOTE: If oil was not first purged from the tensioner, use slight finger pressure to assist the center arm pin of Special Tool 8186 to unseat the tensioner's check ball. CAUTION: Ensure the tensioner is properly reset. The tensioner body must bottom against the top edge of Special Tool 8186. Failure to properly perform the resetting procedure may cause tensioner jamming.
    14. Install the reset chain tensioner into the right cylinder head.
    15. Position tensioner retaining plate and tighten bolts to 12 Nm (105 in. lbs.).
    16. Starting at the right cylinder bank, insert a 3/8" square drive extension with a breaker bar into intake camshaft drive hub. Rotate camshaft until the camshaft hub aligns to the camshaft sprocket and damper attaching holes. Install the sprocket attaching bolts and tighten to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.).
    17. Turn the left side camshaft by inserting a 3/8" square drive extension with a breaker bar into intake camshaft drive hub and rotate camshaft until the sprocket attaching bolts can be installed. Tighten sprocket bolts to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.).
    18. Rotate engine slightly clockwise to remove timing chain slack, if necessary.
    19. To arm the timing chain tensioner: Use a flat bladed pry tool to gently pry tensioner arm towards the tensioner slightly. Then, release the tensioner arm. Verify the tensioner is armed (extends).
    20. Install the timing chain cover, crankshaft damper, and cylinder head covers.
    21. Install camshaft position sensor and connect electrical connector.

    Hope this helps!
