If you don't know which is the compression stroke, there's an easy way, but it may require extra hands to help. remove the number 1 spark plug, put you finger over the spark plug hole to where it seals the hole. turn the crankshaft clockwise, on the intake stroke you'll feel piston sucking air in, pulling on your finger. then it should start blowing air out the plug hole, hard enough where its hard to keep your finger covering the hole. this is the compression stroke. when the piston gets to the top of this stroke, the rotor inside the distributor should be lined up (or at least very close) to the corresponding number 1 on the distributor cap. if its 180 degrees off, you'll have to pull distributor out and realign it.

Take out #1 spark plug, the first one on the driver's side. Put your finger over the hole where the plug was. Have someone crank the engine in small steps until you feel you finger being pushed from the hole. This is the compression stroke. Stop cranking the engine and start turning the engine by hand in the same direction until the timing mark lines up, you should be real close already. If you have to move it more than 1/4 turn, you passed it up, start over. You now have #1 on top dead center. Where the rotor points is where #1 spark plug wire goes on the cap. You should be able to figure it from here.

Does the timing chain need to be replaced on a 1995 Chevy Astro?


Hello g_venegas,typically the timing chain should be replaced between 60 - 80,000 miles, of course the condition and how the vehicle was treated makes a big difference, so with 215,000 miles every day is a blessing regardless of how great shape the rest of it is, the big issue here is that if if fails during operation the repair cost will be considerably more than the timing chain, this of course is a decision you have to make. hope this helps you :) good luck

Mine just did same (2001). Have them check the power steering pump--shaft broke in mine. This affects the brakes as well since both power brakes and power steering run off same system in Astros. Broken shaft messed up the booster system.
