You don't - its all done by the PCM (computer). Eric
no timing adjustment its all computer controlled
The 4 cylinder Saturn engines used an "Oil bath" timing chain. The V6 Saturn engines used an "external" timing belt.
The clutch pedal cannot be adjusted
use a laptop and the appropriate programs to adjust the timing via the car's ECU
The SC2 is an 'S' series Saturn, and all 4 cylinder engines of the S series Saturn's used a timing CHAIN rather than a timing belt.
cant computer controled no adjustment
The V6 engine in a LS2 has a timing belt with replacement intervals at 100k miles
All 1991-2002 Saturn S-series cars have a timing chain. The Ecotec 2.2 and 2.4 L engines also have a chain.BUT!!!The V6 engines all have timing BELTS.
refer to manufacturer's directions in car handbook.
u do not adjust belt tensioner if belt is loose, u need to replace belt as tensioner works automatically
It is probably controlled by the computer;making it non-adjustable. Right the timing is fully controlled by the ECU so the only way to adjust it is by overriding the ECU's values with the propper tunning program and a laptop.
if it is the v6 it has a belt not chain that needs replacing every 105000 miles
No - the 2000 Sentra has a timing chain. No - the 2000 Sentra has a timing chain.
There are 4 camshaft sprockets that must be aligned perfectly for the engine to function properly, and if the timing is off very far the engine can be completely destroyed. A special alignment tool is available that holds the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets in alignment while you replace the timing belt and adjust the tensioner pulleys. That's about the only way to properly align the timing sprockets, and the only way approved by the manufacturer.
2000 saturn sw
The oil pump is ran off the crank and is in the timing cover which requires removing the valve cover and timing cover. Not recommended for the novice mechanic.
2000 Jetta VR6 has a timing chain, NOT a timing belt
MY 2000 saturn is a standerd and I get an av of 38mpg
The 2000 silverado did not have a 350 engine in it. Unless someone put a 350 in it. The 2000 model trucks had 1 of these engines in it. V6-4.3L, V8 engines are-4.8L, 5.3L 6.0L And the factory 2000 year engine timing is not adjustable, it is controlled by the computer. you can also get a v8 5.7.... and the only way to adjust the timing is to get it programed or get a power programmer
Yes.The good news is, the timing chain seldom breaks; they aren't like the timing belts. You can typically just drive the vehicle until the engine is tired, then replace the timing chain, sprockets and tensioner slides while you're rebuilding the rest of the engine.The bad news is, anything is possible and a timing chain CAN break.The "L" series uses a timing belt for the V6 engine, but the 4 cylinder Saturn engines all use timing chains.
your 2000 buick regal has a timing chain
It should be replaced when it begins making a noticeable noise.
Timing chains are designed to last the life of the vehicle. They are normally replaced during a complete engine overhaul.
