How do you align the timing gears on the camshaft and crankshaft on a 97 geo tracker 1.6l 16 valve engine?
The cam sprocket has an "E" adjacent to the timing mark which lines up at 12 o'clock with the V mark on the camshaft seal cover. There is a notch mark on the lower timing belt sprocket that aligns with the mark on the engine front cover at 12 o'clock. These must be set on the proper stroke of the engine as well. Recommend the purchase of a Haynes Repair Manual for your Tracker (1986-2001). It's a fairly complicated 27 step procedure and must be done exactly right. I'm doing that very task on my 97' Tracker right now (it's cold!). Much good advice to keep you from ruining the engine. You can get the manual at your local car parts store - not too expensive <$20, well worth it. Good Luck
the mark on the camshaft timing gear needs to line up with the mark on the crankshaft timing gear to ensure the camshaft is in proper time with the crankshaft. Keep in mind that the marks will only line-up every other revolution of the engine due to the crankshaft spinning twice as fast as the camshaft.
It is a variable valve timing innovations from toyota, where in power and fuel efficiency can be optimized by varying the timing of the camshaft with respect to the crankshaft of an engine,by retarding or advancing the camshaft by a certain phase angles.A conventional engine has it's camshaft rotate half the crankshaft rotation and the performance of a such engine would be in it's peak efficiency for a single speed only.Engineers developed a technology to…
Does the 1991 2.5 s10 have a timing chain or a belt or just mesh gears and how do you replace them The camshaft is gear driven off the crankshaft. The camshaft gear is pressed onto the camshaft. The camshaft must be removed from the engine to change the camshaft timing gear. The timing gears should last the life of the engine. Next time, please don't answer your question with another question.
2.4l dohc balance shaft timing mark, crankshaft sprocket timing mark,oil pump timing mark and camshaft TWO timing marks 2.4l sohc balance shft timing mark, crankshaft timing mark, oil pump timing mark and ONE camshaft timing mark. it is complicated only that everymark must be bang on, if not the pistons will hit the valves and YOU get to rebuild engine.
The crankshaft is turned by the pistons going up and down. The cam shaft is driven by the timing belt or chain that is turned by the crank shaft. The camshaft on a four cycle engine turns 2 to 1 crankshaft revolution. The cams on the camshaft operate the intake and exhaust valves. intake valve on one revolution and exhaust on the next.
The connecting rods and pistons are connected to the crankshaft. Ignition of the air/fuel mixture in the combustion chamber pushes the pistons down which rotates the crankshaft which generates the engines torque/power. The camshaft controls the opening and closing of the valves which allows the air/fuel mixture to flow in and out of the engine. The camshaft is driven by the crankshaft and is kept in proper sequence by a timing belt/chain or gears.
for pre-95 Mustang 5.0 Camshaft Timing is changed by moving the camshaft in relation to the crankshaft. By advancing the camshaft the valves open and close earlier in relation to the position on the crankshaft. By retarding the camshaft the valves open and close later in relation to the position of the crankshaft. A degree wheel as well as other tools are needed for this procedure. Some aftermarket timing gears have extra keyways cut into…
