The 2.7 liter 4 cylinder has a timing CHAIN and the 3.4 liter V6 engine has a timing BELT ( check Ford Ranger XLT - recently answered questions )
It does not have one. The timing is controled by the computor. If the timing is not right then the check engine light will be on. You will need a OBD2 engine scanner to set the timing correctly. The only thing you can do is set the base timing by Ear good enough to get it running, then use the engine scanner to get it right,
Check engine timing, sounds like timing chain might have jumped a tooth
Check the timing first. Then check the egr ooperation. Then check the compression wet and dry. Run some engine cleaner through it.
what are some of the problems of a check engine light for 1994 E class mercedes?
How do you reset the check engine light on a 1991 mercedes Benz 560 Sel
Timing light. The instructions are on the engine hood.
Check engine compression Check engine timing
You can set the base timing by ear, But to be able to get the check engine light to go out and to set the timing were it is supose to be requires a engine scanner. The computer controlls the timing on that year engine.
Dashboard lights: The check-engine light glows because of a problem with the EGR valve on cars with the 2.8-liter and 3.2-liter engines http://consumerguideauto.howstuffworks.com/1992-to-1999-mercedes-benz-s-class-6.htm
An F150 has to have proper timing or the engine could lose power, or not run at all. Follow the specific procedure for your exact engine to check the timing.
The timing on that year engine is computer controlled and you must have an engine scanner to set the timing. That engine has a cam and crank sensor and they must be in correlation / TIME with each other. Are you will have a check engine light on and poor performance.
What year F250 and what engine??
You can't it is nonadjustable, The timing is controled by the computer. And there is no reason to adjust it unless you had the distributor out of the engine and in that case you will need to turn it by hand enough to get it running, and that is called the base timing. Then you will notice that the check engine light is on and you will need an OBD2 engine scanner hooked up to the truck and then go into the timing mode and ajust the timing to factory spec. and the scanner will let you know when you have the timing correct. The check engine light will go off when you have the timing right. Then the computer will do the rest.
The Ford 4.9 liter ( 300 cubic inch ) straight 6 cylinder does not use a timing belt or a timing chain . It has a gear on the end of the camshaft that meshes with a gear on the end of the crankshaft
Maybe, it depends on if your engine is an interference engine.
Check your engine timing, it may be too slow.
Kind of hard to see the timing marks while the engine is running if you don't have a timing light. Don't know what year or make your vehicle is, but if it is an older model, you can "set" the timing by ear by rotating the distributor slowly clockwise and/or clockwise until you get the best "purr" of the engine. This method should suffice until you can get a timing light for more precise setting. but if the car want start how do you check it
No. This car does not have a timing belt.
You dont they are meant to be in the car for the life of the engine. But you can buy a timing light and check the timing.
It depends on the engine liter. For 2.2 liter engine check the intake manifold, under the outlet resonator and duct assembly. For 3 engine liter it is located below battery cooling box.
why does the engine light remain on after starting
You can not set the timing with a timing light on that year engine. The timing is controlled by the PCM./ Power train control module. You must have an oBD2 engine scanner to set the timing. If the timing is off then the check engine light will be on.If you have not removed the distributor are moved it around for any reason then the engine timing is correct already. No need to adjust it. Computer does it.
