With the tensioner installed, you have to push the center of the tensioner piston inward with a screwdriver several times until it releases. When it releases the piston will move outward and push the chain guide tensioner against the chain. If this does not work buy a new one at autozone ($42.00), which is what I had to do. The new tensioner is the same type and works the same way. Vehicle: 1997 Chevy Cavalier 2.4L
The cam chain tension on a 1996 Saturn SL1 cannot be reset from outside of the motor. It will have to be accessed inside the motor. It is also a good idea to check and make sure it is not simply a broken timing guide.
1. For a 2.4 Quad you have a plunger that bolts on which gets it's pressure from the oil pump. The tensioner just needs to be reseated no bolts required it will set next to a piston type plunger and all you need to do is manualy turn the engine 2 to 3 turns and if the plunger is good the little piston should come out and put pressure on the tensioner and tighten the chain. If it does not come out assuming you have plenty of oil in your engine then you need to replace the tensioner which is around $40.00. Tensioner has a round hole in it and slides over a pin on the inside housing and if the plunger is working it will reload the tensioner. After engine restart you may hear the chain as if it is loose but the oil pressure will balance out the needed plunger pressure aganist the timing chain and will quiet down.
Just to make sure are you referring to a timing chain and gears? or a timing belt and pulleys? On most belts you have a tensioner that keeps the belt tight some chains have a tensioner as well many times to fix the chain you have to remove one of the gears in order to remove the chain same goes to replace the chain. I suggest your buying a Chiltons or Haynes repair manaul that usely describes how to remove and reinstall such components. , EzForJesus PS Your local library may have these manuals as well.
No, it has a timing chain. Becareful when removing the camshaft, because the chain tends to fall down inside the timing cover, which is not removable from the front. And it's a pain to reset the timing chain back on the crankshaft sprockets (gear teeth).
A special tool is required. The tool depresses the check ball in the end of the tensioner so that it can be compressed and locked.
There is only one way, the timing chain MUST be right for the engine to operate properly. If the camshaft was set up wrong, the front of the engine must be disassembled and the timing chain must be set up properly.
Timing belts are replaced, not reset.

You cant "reset" the timing on these. It has computer controlled ignition timing. If there is a timing problem check the crank sensor.

You do not reset a timing belt you replace it.
There is no timing belt on the Windstar engine - it is equipped with a timing chain, which requires no routine maintenance. Also, engine timing is controlled by the engine / powertrain computer module. No user intervention required (or even possible).
yep, ya gotta go in and reset or replace it. good luck

remove the battery cable, take the number one plug out and make sure it is on top dead center and check your timing marks to make sure that you are not 180 degrees out, then remove the timing chain or belt cover and and look to make sure the timing marks are where they are suspose to be, if not replace the gears chain/belt with new parts but be careful not to move the cam or crank out any

susposably yuou chane the timing belt every 80 000 miles on most all cars and trucks There is no timing belt on a 93 s10 blazer (you have the V6 4.3L I am assuming). It has a timing chain and gears same as the small block Chevrolet. Usaually only replace them if the chain is stretched or gears worn. This should only happen if you have to constantly check and reset the timing, or the vehicle would not run as the chain would be jumping the sprocket (or gears). Unless you have this problem it should not be of concern. The chain and sprockets should last 200,000 pretty easily.
I have a 1990 LS400 and I have never heard of a timing reset button. The timing is set by the timing belt and controlled by the computer. Let me know if you find out there is such a thing. vbd
how do you reset the digital miter timing belt light on Isuzu 2.8 turbo diesel
The timing is controlled by the PCM, so there is no timing adjustments. set both your camshafts to 90degrees with the cylinder head and cover mating surfaces, using the little punched holes as your guides. Set cylinder number one to TDC and align the chain marks on the gears as follows: The two colored pieces of chain go on the right, and the the left gear and the crankshaft sprocket get one each. Reset your tensioner before reinstalling it or it will fail dismally. Rotete the engine using the crankshaft about three complete revolutions until the timing marks are back to were you set them. Before you close your engine, install the sparkplugs into the boots, but not into the block, then crank your engine and check for spark. If they spark you are good to go. If not remove the camshaft position sensor and try again. If they spark without the sensor in, the rotate you right camshafts by 180 degrees and try again. when working fine, installation is the reverse of the removal. note, be sure your tensioner is fully reset or you will trhow away your engine like an ex-spouse.
