there is no exact angle on your timing light you just shoot the light on the main pulley& tune the distributor cap to the rpms u want to be turning over in that particular engine 12 degrees BTDC (before top dead center), normally the crankshaft pulley has 2 indicators on its side, the single line ( marked color white) and 3 lines together with the center line marked color red. The 3 lines together is your indicator to get the correct timing angle of your engine.
The timing on a 1999 Honda Civic can be adjusted setting the distributor to the correct angle. Setting the distributor forward to much will mess with original settings of the ignition.
# Start the engine and allow it to warm up (cooling fan comes on). # Remove the rubber cap (YEL) from the ignition timing adjusting connector located at the left rear engine compartment and connect the BRN and GRN / WHT terminals with a jumper wire. # Connect a timing light to the engine; while the engine idles, point the light toward the pointer on the timing belt cover. ## Adjust ignition timing, if necessary (color refers to timing mark indicator). Specified value: 18°±2°BTDC (RED) at 725±5O rpm in neutral # Adjust if necessary by loosening the distributor adjusting bolts, and turning the distributor housing counterclockwise to advance the timing, or clockwise to retard the timing. # Tighten the adjusting bolts and recheck the timing. # Remove the jumper wire and install the rubber cap onto the ignition timing adjusting connector.
The 2007 Honda Civic has a timing chain that should last the life of the engine.
12º BTDC .......+ or - 2º
No, the 2010 Honda Civic Hybrid has a timing chain that should last a life of the engine.
what year and engine size?
Base ignition timing for any car should always be set according to the information found on the manufacturers emissions information label, affixed to the underside of the hood. Should this information/sticker not be present, a 1991 Civic DX with D15 engine uses 14* BTDC static ignition timing. It is best to use a dial-back type timing light in-lieu of relying on the marks on the crank pulley.
The 2006 Honda Civic does not have a timing belt, it uses a chain that should last the life of the engine.
It has a timing chain that should last the life of the engine.
According to the Gates website the 1.7 liter 4 cylinder in a 2004 Honda Civic : Has a timing BELT , it is an interference engine
No, it will last the life of the engine.
It has a timing chain which requires no maintenance and should last the life of the engine.
According to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) ( YES ) The 1.5 liter four cylinder engine in a 1991 Honda Civic ( IS AN INTERFERENCE ENGINE )
According to Honda's website the standard Civic models did not start using a timing chain until 2006 with the exception of the SI models which were a different engine and have always had a timing chain. But PRIOR to 2006 all the other civic models had timing belts (which have to be replaced to be replaced periodically).
Yes, it does have an interference engine so do replace your timing belt on schedule time or else the engine might be dead when the timing belt is broken.
All 2005 Honda Civic use a timing belt that must be replaced every 110,000 miles. Warning: This is an interference engine.
A 1995 Honda Civic EX has an interference engine, which means that any timing failure will result in catastrophic damage. Interference engines have extremely tight tolerances which require very precise timing.
Your 2001 Honda Civic has a timing belt. Your engine is an interference engine and as such if the cam belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. Replace the belt at 110,000 miles and also replace the water pump which is driven by the belt.
There are 4 marks on the crank pulley. When standing on the driver side of the car looking down on the pulley, the mark farthest to the right is the mark for TDC (Top Dead Center). The three marks on the left are for the spark timing. Of these three the mark in the center should align with the arrows/triangles on the timing belt cover when the engine is running and a timing light is shining on the crank pulley. The outer two marks represent Honda's tolerances for the ignition timing. Be sure to let the engine warm up before checking/adjusting the timing.
timing belt change 2008 civic
Yes, it has a chain that should last the life of the engine.
A 2011 Honda Civic does not have a timing belt on it. The vehicle does have a timing chain on it.
Yes ( according to Gates , they make timing belts etc . it is an interference engine )
Yes , it is ( according to Gates - they manufacture timing belts etc. )
