dont look at the k or the a. there is a hole in one of the spokes on the cam pulley. line that hole up with the notch cast into the cam cap. its at 12:00.

No. The 1997 Toyota Corolla has a timing belt, which, according to the dealer, should be replaced every 90,000 miles or 6 years.

it has a timing chain. there were no timing belts on corollas after the 1997 model year

There should be a hole in the camshaft that aligns with a hole in the head. That locks the camshaft to #1TDC. Then manually turn the crankshaft until the #1 piston is at TDC. Then install the head and timing chain.

drivers side in the timing cover just before the valve cover.

Yes, according to Toyota all models after 1997 use a Timing Chain and not a belt. They told me they recommend the chain being changed at 120,000 miles or I could have a tensioner added.

About 15 minutes , it is external need to lift vehicle if your timing belt cover is plastic!

You can adjust the camshaft on your 1997 Mazda 626 with the camshaft adjustment bolts. You can access the camshaft adjustment bolts by removing the cylinder heads.

its mounted on the oil pump assembly behind the inner timing belt cover. that's on a 2.3L engine

make sure the camshaft sprocket timing mark is aligned with the upper back cover and cranksaft sprocket timing marks align the crank mark with the cast-in mark on the front seal retainer.

Yes - they are part of the same generation of Corollas, 7th generation (1993-1997).

Timing belt is a toothed belt that connects the engine crankshaft to the camshaft or camshafts as you can see in the picture.The timing belt needed to synchronize the camshaft to the crankshaft position, so the valves will open and close at the proper time in the relation to the position of the pistons. The camshaft rotates at exactly 1/2 speed of the crankshaft; meaning two revolutions of the crankshaft are equal to one revolution of the camshaft.Not all cars have a timing belt. Some of them use a chain or gears instead.Mostly, you can find the timing belt in small and medium size domestic and import passenger cars. For example, 1993 - 1997 Toyota Corolla, 1998 - 2001 Honda Accord, 1997 - 2001 Honda CR-V, 2001 - 2004 Volkswagen Passat - they all have a timing belt.The timing belt must be replaced at a specified by the manufacturer interval. This interval may vary from 60,000 miles to 105,000 miles (from 96,000 km to 168,000 km). In addition, the timing belt must be replaced if it has any damage like cracks (see the picture below), cuts or excessive wear. If not replaced in time, it may break possibly causing serious engine damage. When a timing belt breaks, the camshaft stops turning leaving some of the valves in the open position. The crankshaft, because it's heavier, continues to rotate by inertia. In an interference engine, this will cause the pistons to strike the valves that left open. This may result in broken or bent valves, damaged pistons, and possibly, destroyed cylinder head.The damage will be less extensive in a non-interference engine but in either case, the engine will stall, leaving you stranded

Find the word "UP" on the camshaft to the 12 o'clock position & align the mark on the crankshaft with the pointer on the oil pump....EASY!

The 1997 Chevrolet K 3500 pickup truck camshaft position sensor is located on the back of the cylinder head. The camshaft position sensor should be labeled as such.

A wiring diagram for the 1997 Toyota Corolla power side mirror can be purchased at major auto parts stores. A Haynes manual for the Corolla will have a diagram in it.

There is a camshaft in the center of each cylinder head on that engine.
