YOU don't set the timing on a 96, its all computer controlled. If your timing is off then you have a problem somewhere else. So if you timing is truly off then what needs to be fixed is whats causing it to be off. The computer sets the timing based on feedback that it gets from different sensors on and around the motor. And secondly i don't understand how you could even know if the timing was off in that car. But my advice is, if you know the timing is off and its not throwing any trouble codes, take it to a dealer.
Need to know the year, make, model and engine info but, most engines have timing marks that must be lined up.
If you suspect your timing belt has broken or the teeth have been stripped off of it, the only way to know for sure is to take off you timing belt cover and have a look. Some vehicles had / have interference heads. These vehicles will destroy their own valves if you try to crank them without a timing belt on.
The timing is computer controlled, there is no adjustments. I know this is a little late, but timing could be off because the timing belt is not properly aligned. If the timing belt is installed incorrectly the timing will never be right.
i need a diagram for my 95 Chevy beretta for the 2.2L engine. I'm tryin to replace the timing chain, and i need to know what to take off and what not to take off
if the timing is off by 9 degrees at the timing belt, your in trouble... you would have bent all your valves..... if its off on the timing tabs then you need a timing light and turn the distributer until you get the desired timing..
yes your timing is off
If your timing is off, it's most likely because of the timing belt. I had this problem when I changed my timing belt and took my car apart over 10 times. You have to be dead-on precise when fitting the timing belt. If you are off one notch your timing will be off. It's that precise.
A Galant has timing belts, normally the belts break if they have not been serviced. As for as jumping time they belt may stretch causing it to run bad or not to run at all. Pull the cover off of the timing belt and check the timing using the timing marks. If they are off your car is out of time.
if the timing belt breaks then yes it will throw the timing off.
Hello: I am doing a overhaul on my 2002 Mitsubishi Galant. I inadvertently moved the crankcase while trying to remove the small timing belt while the larger timing belt was off. Knowing that, I would like to know is there a procedure to follow to correct this?
if the timing plate was taken off then just take off the timing cover and there will be notches on the timing gears so u can time it from there
Can your pully holding alternater belt and ect. coming loose and belts coming off cause my Honda to jump timing ?
Don't know what vehicle you are talking about but with most vehicles if the timing chain jumped you won't get out of your driveway. With the timing cover off, most chains and gears have marks stamped into them that should line up when the number 1 piston is at Top Dead Center.
It is not necessary to change timing gears when changing a timing chain unless they have become worn. You won't know if this is the case until you get the cover off and inspect them. It is necessary to change any chain tensioners when you change your timing chain.
First off, you do not have to remove the engine from any vehicle I know of to replace a timing belt. Secondly, your vehicle has a chain, and not a belt.
Unless you have had the timing belt off or it has broken the timing should still be correct. The way you set the timing is by taking the timing belt off and lining up the timing marks and put the belt back on. I added a link to a text how-to for setting the timing on the Zetec engine. -ZX2Fast
timing belt is off reset timing was off a little but did not correct the problem
Your timing MIGHT be off if: low power, poor acceleration, poor gas mileage.
If it has not failed yet then you need to take the cover off and inspect it for cracks and such. If it has failed there will be no compression, the engine will not run and the camshaft timing will be way out.
the car lost the timing belt but it was not running at the time i would like to know if it would of dune some damage very carefuly! If you don't know anything about cars i wouldn't try it....you don't want to throw off the timing!!
wrong timing can cause any engine to over heat. in fact if the timing is off it can cause hundreds of dollars of damage.
Need to know what your question about the 2.8L is. The ? is about a 2.8 in a '86 Wagoneer Limited. The timing marks or scale are bolted to the right side of the timing chain cover. They come off and are lost. Anyone know where to buy another scale?
If the timing chain is off, you will probably have bent valves.
it could have a rough idle, knocking or pinging, sputtering, smell strong like gas, etc. careful when you line up timing, it's best to only have to do it once.
