There's a small notch cut out in the outer edge of the crank pulley. Mark this with some bright white or yellow paint, chalk or soapstone. then check where the timing should be set according to the sticker under the hood and align this mark with the correct position on your timing tab on the lower timing cover.

The timing marks for the cam sprocket on a 98 S10 is on the front. The marks for the crank shaft is on the oil pump gear.

there are paint marks on the chain. once you line it up it should be on tdc

you set timing by the marks on the cam shaft and the crank shaft. they should point at together to make it run right.

Timing is done by Engine computer with imfo from cam and crank sensor . It is not adjustable. If you are replacing timing belt, a Gates timing belt comes with detailed instructions of belt and pulley timing marks. New belt has marks on it that correspond with cam shaft pulleys and crank pulley.

There are two timing marks on a 350 chev one for the cam shaft gear and one for the crank gear. The timing mark on the crank or the on on the bottom of the motor should be facing straight up and the cam shaft gear should be facing straight down this will put you lined up and top dead center.

My honda passport 3.2 litter, to set the timing my belt has three timing marks on the outside of the belt, crank the motor over till you see the two belt marks towards the top of the cam shaft or around thier if one is at top the other cam can not be seen so botn cams have to be tilted set both belt marks to the cam shaft marks. When the belt comes off dont get the cams out of phase they tend to unwind a bit, put back. A nd the crank shaft has a green timing mart on it after you pull off the pulley and cover, so match the other timing belt mark on the belt to the crank shaft mark then put the tensioner back on now it is on dead set timing.

i have a mazda 1994 626 v6 24 valve car and i think the timing belt just broke where are all the timing marks crank shaft and cams?

User Avatar

it is auto timed thru the cam shaft and crankshaft sensors.You cannot change it. The timing belt has timing marks when you change the belt in which you line up the crank and cams.

Line crank shaft pulley timing mark on tc mark on timing belt cover. Look at cam shaft timing belt sprocket and locate the small triangle (not diamond shape) located on the plate attached to the timing sprocket. Referencing the timing sprocket look approximately at 5:00 o'clock under the timing sprocket and locate the other small triangle. Line these 2 marks up. Put timing belt on. Make sure the cam shaft sprocket and crank shaft sprocket do not turn while installing the belt. The crank shaft pulley must be removed in order to get the timing belt on.

Where do you set crank and cam shaft marks to set timing on a 1996 Nissan Pathfinder?" Did the timing belt snap ? if so the engine will have bent valves and require more work than just the belt. This is timing belt job is not one for the inexperienced diy mechanic. Not trying to be a wise guy, but get the manual, the timing mark set up isn't a simple explanation .

There are the letters O and T on the crank shaft pully. Look for similar marks on the intermediate shaft. If you remove the cover on the top of the tranny, you can look for the notch on the flywheel as well.

there are no timing marks on the cam shaft pullys you have to remove the rocker cover and fit a locking tool to the rear of the cams the crank has a mark on the fan belt pully to the cover at about 5 oclock

I don't have pictures. There are six pulleys that the belt goes around. There are timing marks on the valve cover toward the timing belt on the front and on the rear. From the rear the marks are two o'clock and ten o'clock. Then two o'clock ten o'clock on the front valve cover. On the crank, it's at one o'clock. However there are marks to show all the timing marks. If changing the timing belt, start on the front and back around the rear down to the crank shaft.

It's behind the timing belt cover on top of the crank pulley.

User Avatar

It is on the front of the crank shaft and under the timing belt cover. You have to remove the crank pulley and all the belts and then the lower timing cover. It is not a job for a beginner.from : http://repairpal.com/crankshaft-sensor-569

You are changing the timing belt and you need o know where the timing marks are for the cam shaft and the crankshaft on a 1994 corolla Also how do you align the marks to put engine in time?

User Avatar

Turn crank till number one cylinder is at top dead center on compression stroke. Both intake and exhaust valves will be closed. Turn cam till key way on cam sprocket is at 12 oclock position as well the crank shaft key way should also be at 12 o'clock position. Install crank shaft timing sprocket and cam sprocket with timing marks facing outward. The cam mark should be at about the 3 o'clock position and the crank mark will be about the 5 o'clock position. Look at the timing chain and find the two links that are a different color install chain so as to match these two links to timing marks on sprockets. Install guides and tensioner .

behind the crank shaft pully and the timing cover and then another pully is there two bolt hold it on

User Avatar

most crank sensors are for engine timing with the cam shaft, the distributor on at least 97' dodge and newer controls fuel timing.

User Avatar

go to your local library and get service manual for that engine it will show you a picture of the timing marks and explain how to line them up.

User Avatar

the timing marks are the the triangle on the cam shaft and there is a plate in the back of the cam shaft that has a groove at the top of the plate.line bot of them up then your car will be timed.

The timing marks for a 2002 Ford Explorer are located on the timing chain and cam shaft sprocket. They must be aligned with each other to set the initial timing.
