the way it looks in the chilton manual, the timing marks are on the crankshaft and the intermediate shaft sprockets. If anything else is found, it will be posted. hope this is of some help to you for now.
You have to remove the drivebelt accessories and then remove the timing covers and take out the timing belt or chain. Basically you have to tear the side of the engine apart to get it out. It's a good day or two of work.
Connect timing light to battery and No. 1 cylinder and aim light at crankshaft Connect timing light to battery and No. 1 cylinder and aim light at crankshaft timing marks
You have to remove the alternator, driving belts (serpentine belt, stirring pump belt). After that remove the engine mount on the passenger side of the car (do not forget to put something underneath the engine before removing the mount). After that you need remove the upper timing belt cover. Remove the crankshaft pulley and lower timing belt cover. Put the marks on the timing belt. Loosen the timing belt pulley, stretch the spring, and tighten the timing belt pulley. Remove the timing belt. After this you get access to the oil pump, which is going around the crankshaft and has dozen of bolts to remove. PS: Before you start make sure you have to gasket because they are not reusable.
The 2.4L has a timing belt.
The oil pump is part of the timing cover on the front of the crankshaft.The oil pump is part of the timing cover on the front of the crankshaft.
There is a special tool ( a puller ) to remove the crankshaft sprocket.There is a special tool ( a puller ) to remove the crankshaft sprocket.
Remove the drive belts, crankshaft pulley, and timing covers. Align the timing marks on the camshaft and crankshaft and r+r the belt
Timing marks are always on the crankshaft, usually on the pulley closest to the block. This is because the timing must be based upon the position of the number one piston, which is connected to the crankshaft.
One is on the crankshaft pulley the other is on the camshaft pulley.
Under the timing belt cover!
You have to remove the serpentine belt and drivebelt accessories then the passenger side engine mount, remove the timing cover, remove the timing belt, and the crankshaft sprocket to access the seal. It's about a day and a half of work.
Remove 1 Auxiliary Drive Belts. 2 LH top engine mounting. 3 Crankshaft Pulley 4 Cylinder head cover 5 Timing belt upper cover 6 Timing belt lower cover
The 4.0 L has a timing belt. All other engines have a timing chain.
No. The timing belt or chain connects to crankshaft and camshafts. The serpentine belt connects the crankshaft with the alternator, ac compressor, power steering, etc.
The "L" series Saturns came in two varieties; the 4 cylinder (which used a timing chain), and the V6 which used a timing belt. To replace the timing belt on the V6 you must use the specially designed tool to lock the camshafts and crankshaft in place while you replace the belt. To replace the timing chain on the 4 cylinder, you must remove the front housing. It's easier to just remove the engine.
Behind the lower timing belt cover. You will need to remove the power steering pump bracket(among other things) in order to remove
In back of the timing cover at the bottom.
disconnect negative battery cable rotate the engine in the normal direction of rotation(clockwise)until the no.1 is TDC remove the accessory drivebelt loosen the water pump pulley bolts and then remove the water pump pulley using a chain wrench or a strap wrench to hold the crankshaft pulley,loosen the crank pulley bolt and then remove the pulley bolt and the crank pulley.Make sure that you dont move the No.1 cylinder from TDC while loosening the crank pulley bolt.After removing the crankshaft pulley remove the timing belt retainer/guide flange remove the 4 upper timing belt cover bolts and then remove the upper timing belt cover.Remove the lower timing belt cover bolts make sure that the timing belt camshaft sprocket timing marks are aligned with the top of the cylinder head if your planning to re-use the timing belt put a directional arrow indicating the normal clockwise direction of rotation on the belt remove the timing belt tensioner pulley bolt and then remove the tensioner pulley remove the timing belt remove the timing belt idler pulley bolt and then remove the idler pulley if the camshaft sprocket is damaged or must be removed to replace the camshaft seal or to strip the cylinder head for overhaul use a wrench to hold the cramshaft in place and then remove the sprocket retaining bolt.Then remove the camshaft sprocket from the end of the camshaft remove the crankshaft tioming belt sprocket
Crank position sensor is located next to the crankshaft. In order to replace it you might have to remove the timing belt. In the most models you just can remove remove the timing belt cover and replace the sensor.
Disconnect the negative battery cable. Turn the crankshaft until the No. 1 cylinder is at TDC on the compression stroke with the timing marks aligned. Remove the idler pulley and bracket assembly. Remove the drive and accessory belts. Remove the radiator and water pump Remove the crankshaft pulley and damper Remove the lower radiator hose. Remove the oil pan-to-timing cover bolts. Remove the front cover bolts and the front cover. Tap the cover lightly with a plastic mallet, if necessary, to break it loose.
It's a big job. You have to remove alternator and air cond. belts. Remove crankshaft pulley, then remove timing belt assembly cover, then remove timing belt, then pull out crank sprocket. After that you get the old crankshaft seal out and put in new one. Put then everything back in reverse order. Done.
CAUTION: Some models are equipped with anti-theft-radio make sure you have the activation code before disconnecting battery * Disconnect the negative battery cable * Rotate the engine in the normal direction of rotation (clockwise) until the No.1 cylinder is located TDC * Remove the accessory drivebelt * Loosen the water pump pulley bolts and then remove the water pump pulley * Using a chain wrench or a strap wrench to hold the crankshaft pulley loosen the crank pulley bolt and then remove the pulley bolt and the crank pulley.Make sure that you dont move the no.1 cylinder from TDC while loosening the crank pulley bolt.After removing the crankshaft pulley remove the timing belt retainer/guide flange * Remove the four upper timing belt cover bolts and then remove the upper timing belt cover.Remove the lower timing belt cover bolts * Make sure that the timing belt camshaft sprocket timing marks are aligned with the top cylinder head * Remove the timing belt tensioner pulley bolt and then remove the tensioner pulley * Remove the timing belt
