This is a pretty tough timing belt job to do if you have never done one before. There is also a kit of tools that are essential to getting the timing right on this engine. The cams are numbered 1-2-3-4 from left to right if you are facing the cam sprockets. If the tensioner was broken and the engine came out of time you are probably looking at at least a few bent valves. Could be time well spent to perform a leakdown test before you spend too much time on installing a timing belt.

While replacing timing belt on my 2003 pt cruiser (2.4 liter) I got the belt on with the crank pulley and compression pulley (top front) in timing but exhaust pulley (top rear) off by one tooth. Took belt...


To readjust the cam timing loosen of the valve rockers so that the valves will not move as the cams are turned.. Set the crankshaft on TDC no 1 piston. This will make the mark on the crank sprocket line up with a mark on the housing. The cam shaft marks are to ne facing each other with the "up" marks facing up. Loosen of the adjuster idler and use an allen key to lever the pulley away from the belt. Fit belt and let tensioner off Ensure tensioner spring is in line with the notch. Repeat procedure to get it there.. The valves will now be timed . replace the rockers and adjust as required . The problem that you had is that there was load on the cam lobes from incorrect positioning of the cam shafts and the shaft turns until the load was equal between two lobes.. There is every possibility that there will be bent valves as it is an interference motor.

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.

To resent the timing on a 1997 3.0L Chysler engine, can you take the timimg belt off and turn the camshaft spockets to 12 degrees BTDC


ignition timing control by pcm.if you try adjusting timing by turning cam shaft you going to damage engine valves and pistons you are going to throw off valve timing when you turn camshaft.

We just replaced a torn timing belt and crank position sensor on my 03 lancer. the engine will not fire. how do we set the timing points? I cannot find a repair manual for this year lancer anywhere.


With the belt off and the tensioner pulley pushed back, you will need to set cylinder 1 (far passenger side) to top dead center. There is a mark on the block you can see just behind the crankshaft gear that needs to be aligned to the mark on the crankshaft gear. CAUTION NOT TO TURN THE CAM PULLEY TOO FAR IF ANY PISTONS ARE AT TDC, they will contact the piston on this motor. turn the crankshaft gear forward or backward 1/4 turn off of TDC when you move the cam pully. Once this is done, you will need to set the camshaft pulley to a poorly designed mark on the cylinder head. (it is the corner point of the casting for the cylinder head, it forms a triangle at about the 10:00 position when looking at the cam pulley). Install your belt, it will be tight even with the tensioner pulled back so making sure it doesn't cause either of the gears to move off their marks. Once it on recheck the timing marks upper (cam) and lower (crank), release the tensioner, put your other belt on and you're done. http://www.mivec.co.nz/tech/4G9x_Engine_Manual.pdf

Cam shaft timming marks 1999 Daewoo 1.6 liter


there is a special tool to hold gears in correct place on some of these models, but you can hold one cam at a time with a spanner then feed belt on exhaust cam then inlet cam gear
get someone to hold gears in place while you feed belt on.
the inlet cam is more prone to turn off mark more than exhaust.
if you have tensioner that needs retaining pin in when installing
you fit belt while aligning timming marks
fit tensioner as last spot to feed belt on with retaining pin in adjuster
get correct tension on belt by turning water pump so that you can flex (turn) belt 90 degrees only just while using finger and thumb
tighten water pump check flex
check all timing marks are correct
remove retaining pin from auto tensioner
turn motor over a couple of turns by hand observing tensioner arrow should hover around V mark and that all timing marks align up again(after one complete turn)

Timimg for a 1990 nissan maxima


If your belt came with marks, then they should match the marks that are on the sprockets and block, if not, you must have the cam marks align with those on the engine. If you're in doubt about the exact spot, lay a tooth pick across the sprockets so that you can check alignment to the block.

Toyota timing belt


I just did mine last month. same year & eng. you should have a Chilton repair manual, but... The cams R marked. the marks go straight up on each. the crank has to be on TDC on compression stroke. put #1 piston up (front pass side) & feel for air pressure coming out with your finger to assure its on compression stroke. as you apply the belt, w/ the tentioner off, the cam marks will move out a hair & no longer be ligned up with the marks on the timimg cover backing plate. they will each be off about 1/8 away from the marks on the backing plate. some belts are marked with white lines that line up w/ marks on the pulleys. 610-905-4257 Barry

86733GH3 REPAR TIMING BELT


3.0l Mitsubishi 6 cylinder.
support engine... remove engine mount... remove alternator, power stearing pump, compressor (if equipt) do not remove hoses from power stearing pump or compressor move them out of the way were they wont get damaged. Remove the tension pulley for the serpentine belt, and the tensioner for the compressor belt if equipt. then remove the compressor mounting bracket. Next remove the engine mounting plate and the crank pulley and balancer assembly. you should now be able to remove the the 3 piece timing cover. Once removed remove the tensioner spring from the water pump and loosen the tensioner nut. Remove the belt. At this point it is also recommended to replace the water pump and plumbing as well. The water pump service life is aproximately the same as the timing belt at 60,000 miles. This engine in stock form is a non interfering type engine. Meaning that moving the cams or crank out of sync will not cause damage. Turn each of the cams over by hand and line them up with the timing mark on the top of the back cover with the marks on the pulleys. Using a wrench turn the crank so that the pulley mark lines up with the mark cast into the block. replace the belt, tensioner spring (replace tensioner if warn) and tighten the tensioner bolt. roll the crank over 2 complete turns forward and recheck the cams to make sure the marks are still lined up. roll the crank backwards and recheck the timing marks again. (this process is much easier done with the plugs removed.) If everything is still lined up correctly (crank at TDC and cam pulleys pointing to each designated mark on the covers.) reassemble the cover and assessorys in the reverse order that they were removed and reinstall the old motor mount or replace if needed.

Getting the motor in time after changing the belt


What you do is line up the lower mark. Go to the upper sprocket and move the sprocket 1 tooth back(counter clockwise). After the belt is on, Rotate ONLY the upper sprocket to take up the slack in the long side of the belt being careful of not moving the lower sprocket. The upper spocket should now be exactly where it should be. Release the tensioner and I like to use a big screw driver or something to "preload" the tensioner before fully tightening it. The belt should have really good tension. The rule of thumb is the long side of the belt should not be able to twist 90 degrees to the engine. If it's more that that, ou need to tension it up tighter.
