SOURCE: need to know the timing marks on 1992 toyota

you may find them online but if it were me i would go to local auto parts and spend the $24.95 on a haynes repair manual it has pictures of the marks and the tension specs etc worth the $$ , remove #12 spark plug and take a peice of wire stick it into the hole till it touchs the piston then rotate the crankshaft till its a top dead center then look down at the line up marks behind the crank gear they should line up then rotate the camshaft till marks line up should be 12 oclock on cam gear? this is sometimes tricky to get it lined up without it being 1 tooth off thats why picture is best ? hope this helps [email protected]

SOURCE: top end cam and crank chains are off!

I can help you with this.You have to start all over again.There should be three chains all together. Two short ones and one long one.The two short ones are for the cams. We are going to start with those two first.The 90 degrees they are talking about the timing mark on the gears on the cams should be 90 degrees from the flat surface of the cylinder head.The easiest way to do is find the marks on the gears and then find the links on the chains that are different color line those up with the timing marks on the gears. There should be 12 links one color link to the other. Set those and put the tensioners on little tricky on those. When you are going to set the big chain the cams are going to move some don't worry about as long as those color links stay on the timing marks. They will move a little and it looks like they are off but they are not. Once you do that the long chain also has different color links also align those with the timing marks on the cam sprokets and crank gear.Install your tensioner for the long chain. You have to collapse the tensioner all the way in and install collapse. Once in with a screw driver pry in against the tensioner to realease it. If you fail to do this you will hear chain hitting the metal cover when you start it. Once you have this together you can turn the engine in the direction that it normally runs manually and it shouldbe free. Keep in mind that once you turn the engine you will never get those timing marks to align the way they were it still ok. Hopefully this will help. I have built a lot of these engines for my customers.

I have a 1994 Toyota corolla changed the timing belt tensioner. trying to set timing, all marks line up except camshaft dots, can't get them to face each other without throwing off all the other marks

If you removed the tensioner and didn't lock the cams and crank down then you have to re-time the engine. It sounds like you let the exhaust and intake cams move.

Remove the spark plugs, put a ratchet on the crank pulley, slowly rotate engine until the cams line up. Once the cams are lined up remove, the timing belt and bring the crank around to the timing mark. put belt back on and let the tensioner go. put plugs back in...see if it'll start.

Setting timing marks to get vehicle to start after engine overhaul

Timing marks setting Corolla 4A-FE.
Align the notch on the crankshaft pulley with the "0" mark on the timing belt lower cover.

With the crankshaft pulley being aligned with the 0 mark on the timing belt cover, the hole on the camshaft sprocket should exactly be in front of the notch of camshaft bracket.

Hope that works.

Timing belt broke intalled new one and need to set timing on 1992 toyota corolla

Not sure I understand your question.
If you did not move the distributor, and the marks are lined up on the cam and crank gears, the timing should still be correct.

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 need to know the camshaft timing on my 1991 corolla. It has the 1.6

With the Keyway on the crankshaft at the 12 O'Clock position the timing mark on the crank shaft gear shiuld line up with the timing mark on the crankcase at the 1 O'Clock position.
For the Camshaft gear, the small hole under the " 4A " on the gear should line up with the indent on the front camshaft bearing cap. The approximate correct oposition of the camshaft gear is also indicated by the No. 4 Cylinder exhaust valves just closing and the inlet valves just opening.

How do i position the timing marks when replacing my cam belt

j__quin: 4-AC engine I believe we are both referring to.
Your cam gear can only fit one way and if you look at the cam gear, you will notice that there is a small hole in the gear close to the center, somewhat in between two of the large holes.
Position that small hole at the 12:00 PM and look through the hole.
You should be able to see a timing mark through the hole on the head. The mark should be dead center.
At the bottom, the crank woodruff key will be at 12:00 PM.
Also on the back side of the timing gear on the crank closest to the block, is a notch "V" which you line up with a dot on the block.
You should see the two line up with the key in the 12:00 PM position.
Put the belt on, when you set the tension, a good way to check it, is to find the longest span between the tensioner and the gear.
Take your fore finger and thumb and try to twist the belt. It shouldn't twist more than 45 degrees.
Good luck.

Torquing head

The 98 Corolla has a "torque-to-distance" spec.

First, torque all 10 bolts to 36 ft lbs (49 NM or 500kgf-cm), in a clockwise fashion, starting with the 2 center bolts.

Second, mark the bolts with a paint mark, and then torque each of the 10 bolts an additional 90 degrees.

Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa.
