Best Answer

Both valves of the number one piston must be closed. This happens when the camshaft gear timing mark is lined up with the mark on the camshaft seal cover(mark is right on top-a notch in the top center of the plate of metal sticking up). The problem is that there are two marks on the gear and both have the "E" stamped nearby as required. Through trial and error I was able to determine the one that created pressure from the piston(because the wrong mark, when lined up, left one or more valves open so I felt no pressure.) Yet I still had problems getting the timing correct.

How can you tell if a 1994 Geo Tracker is an eight or 16 valve?

16 valve engine not put in a Tracker till 1996. 1994 Tracker is 8 valve (but a Sidekick may have the 16 valve in 1994) Actually there were 16 valve Trackers before 96. I have an early 95 which is 16v version. I believe 16v engines started somewhere between 91-94. I do know that the valve covers usually state 16 valve when it is. ,the spark plugs in a 16 valve are waaayy down in the top of the engine,you need about a eight inch extention to get at them
