Question about Chevrolet 2004 Chevrolet Aveo
I just line the arrows up. Crank has a mark to line how do know compression from exhaust stroke
On a petrol engine remove the spark plug and put your finger over the hole to seal it. Get somebody to turn the engine for you.
You'll feel the compression build up - that's the compression stroke.
If your distributor has a rotor arm inside, the rotor will be pointing more or less at no1 lead.

Tips for a great answer:
First pull the timing belt tensioner then slip the belt off the cam gears. You then need to find TDC (Top dead center). 3 ways to find TDC 1) There are marks on the crank pulley align them for TDC. 2) Remove timing cover and use crank gear mark seen in link below 3) Put the dip stick in cylinder 1 and turn engine until dip stick stops going up. After finding TDC align cam gear marks seen in link below. Now make sure both cam and crank stay in position and slip timing belt back on (you can move the cam gear to get the belt on but make sure the marks are aligned after the belt is on). Last tighten the belt tensioner, I usually use my finger or an extension to get some more tension on the belt. You might have to remove engine mount bracket makes life much easier as the front cover section is TIGHT !!!. Turn engine a few times to make sure you have compression and engine turns without getting stuck. See link below good luck.
