you'll need a timing light for this if it is ignition timing your'e checking. get the engine warm, find the "diagnosis" connector (its a little grey box near the passenger side front of the engine), open the box and jump the 2 terminals labeled "te1" and "e1". at the passenger front of the engine is the #1 spark plug and wire. you clamp the probe from the timing light around that cable. (if you're not sure follow the wire labeled "1" from the distributor cap) you'll want to clamp it near the plug for the best results. connect the power and ground clamps on the light to their respective battery terminals. start the engine and point the flashing light toward the timing marks (they are on the timing cover just above the crank pulley) the mark on the pulley should be getting flashed as it comes around to the marks. it should line up at 10 degrees before top dead center. if it does, your'e done! if not, loosen the bolt that holds the distributor in place and twist the distributor until the mark is lining up with 10 degrees. tighten the bolt back down and youre done! dont forget to remove your jumper and timing light.
Does the 2004 4runner have a timing belt or chain
2012 4runner timing chain or belt
A 2008 4Runner V6 has a CHAIN. The V8 4Runner has a timing BELT.
The timing on a 1987 Chevy Celebrity is controlled by the engine control module, there is no provision for adjustment.
RWD or FWD?
where is the neutral safety on my 1987 4runner
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 )
WHEN SHOULD TIMING BELT BE CHANGED ON A 2000 TOYOTA 4RUNNER SR5? email@example.com
no timing adjustment its all computer controlled
The 4.0L V6 has a timing chain...the 4.7L V8 has a timing chain!
V8 =timing belt, the v6 has a timing chain
the v6 has a belt!
If everything is right internally then the distributor does. Rotating the distributor adjusts the exact time the spark plug fires. BUT There is a timing chain and timing marks on the crankshaft and the cam shaft. Then there is an electrical advance from the computer and the internal ignition module and pickup coil inside the distributor. Together these all can effect the timing.
The timing belts on older Toyota 4Runner models are rated to last approximately 60000 miles. Going to long without changing them can result in a damaged engine.
The 3.4 liter V6 in a 1998 Toyota 4 Runner has a timing BELT Yeap ant 3.0 and 3.4 has a timing belt that needs attention after some miles check your service records...
Motorweek - 1987 Toyota 4Runner 29-31 was released on: USA: 2 April 2010
My timing belt slipped on my 1990 tyota 4runner 3.0. The crankshaft mark and camshaft marks do not align. Should i keep the crankshaft aligned and then align the camshaft marks?.
