Timing Belts and Chains
Ford Laser
Ford Escort ZX2

When replacing timing belt on a Ford Laser dohc turbo 4WD 1987 B6 the crank at top dead center what do the exhaust and intake camshaft timing marks line up with?

On the SOHC 1.6 there are timing marks on the sprocket and rocker cover and on the block on the exhaust side about level with the top of the manifold.. I don't know if this helps. I hope so.

To open/close the intake/exhaust valves.

It has two. One intake and one exhaust.

A two-stroke engine does not have a cam or camshaft. Seeing there is no intake/exhaust valves it would be pointless to have a camshaft.

User Avatar

In a dual overhead cam (DOHC, twin cam, etc.) engine, the intake cam is the camshaft contolling the intake valves. Thus the opperation of the exhaust valves is left to the exhaust cam.

A stretched timing chain on a DOHC engine will cause a retarded intake camshaft timing and a slightly retarded or normal exhaust camshaft timing. The intake cam will take most of the stretch, leaving the exhaust cam mostly normal. The results of a retarded intake camshaft will be improved fuel economy due to less air-fuel drawn in during the intake stroke. Also, IF the exhaust camshaft is retarded from excessive timing chain stretch the result will be a lower NOX emissions due to exhaust gas being drawn in during the intake stroke, lowering the overall combustion chamber temperature.

the camshafts are identical,take the bolt out of the camshaft sprocket and you will see how the camshaft pin is positioned, that is what makes a intake camshaft or a exhaust camshaft

If you want a stocker,you could use cast iron heads with 1.94 intake/1.60 exhaust valves.For your camshaft,you could use 423"intake/446"exhaust...Nothing special.If you want a little more performance,something that will turn heads,a weekend racer,or to seek and destroy rice burners,step up to cast iron or aluminum 2.02 intake/1.60 exhaust heads.For your camshaft,you could use a 498"intake/498"exhaust rough idle roller camshaft,with roller lifters.For race/competition,you could use ported and polished aluminum heads with 2.08 intake/1.60 exhaust.For your camshaft,you could use a roller 544"intake/567" exhaust with roller lifters.You could go either way YOU want.Just trying to ballpark it for you.

It is on the top of the engine on the passenger side. There are two of these. One for intake and one for exhaust.

The camshaft closest to the intake manifold (closest to the passenger cabin) is the intake camshaft on the dual camshaft Saturn engines.

The crankshaft is turned by the pistons going up and down. The cam shaft is driven by the timing belt or chain that is turned by the crank shaft. The camshaft on a four cycle engine turns 2 to 1 crankshaft revolution. The cams on the camshaft operate the intake and exhaust valves. intake valve on one revolution and exhaust on the next.

Exhaust camshaft sensor signal and the intake camshaft sensor signal. Happened to my BMW few days ago.

User Avatar

yes but only if it is a 4 stroke the cam or camshaft controls the fuel intake and exhaust valves

User Avatar

Align the timing marks on the camshaft gears to the notches on the camshaft cover, using the intake gear mark for the intake gear and the exhaust gear mark for the exhaust gear. 38. Align the mark on the crankshaft gear with the notch at the bottom of the rear timing belt cover.

Your exhaust lines up with exhaust pipes ,your intake lines up with your intake runners.

User Avatar

the camshaft is i metal rod that has tear drop shaped lobes that control when the intake and exhaust valves open and close.

User Avatar

The exhaust lifters will line up with the exhaust manifolds,Remove the valve cover if your working on a V8 and the valve that lines up with the exhaust port will be the exhaust valve,If it is a Chevy V8 they will be from standing in front of the car exhaust,intake,intake,exhaust,exhaust,intake,intake,exhaust.

User Avatar

look at the head with the valve cover off find where the exhaust manifold goes in tha is the exhaust valve or looking at the valves the first one is exhaust then intake then intake ,exhaust,exhaust,intake,intake,exhaust if you have the head off i think the intake valves are bigger than the exhaust

User Avatar

-intake: exhaust closed, intake open -compression: exhaust closed, intake closed -combustion: exhaust closed, intake closed -exhaust: exhaust open, intake closed

Real simple exhaust camshafts are the camshafts nearest the exhaust manifolds ( outside if cylinder heads) intake camshafts are on the inside closer to center of engine.

User Avatar

Imagine a plane in space (like your workbench tabletop) and rotate the camshaft about its center axis such that the cam lobes become tangent with or "just barely touch" that plane. Each time the lobe is tangent it is opening a valve. The order in which those valves open is the order in which the cylinders fire. This is true whether you're looking at an intake cam or an exhaust cam. The cylinders all fire in the same order that they're filled with intake charge; they also fire in the same order that they are evacuated of their exhaust gasses. If you have a single cam that controls both intake and exhaust valves, this method requires that you know which lobes open the intake valves and which open the exhaust valves, and only pay attention to one set.

the intake are next to the carb and the exhaust are next to the exhaust manafold intake are .008 exhaust are .012 with the engine warm good luck

User Avatar

A camshaft opens/closes the intake/exhaust valves at predetermined points of the piston travel. The cam is driven by the crankshaft, the rotating cam lobes operates thru lifters/followers that ride against the lobes.

User Avatar

Yes, there are 2 camshafts on a 1.8T GTI. The engine uses a 20 valve design, meaning 5 valves per cylinder. For each cylinder 3 valves are intake valves and 2 valves are exhaust valves. One camshaft drives the intake valves and the other camshaft drives the exhaust valves

The purpose of a camshaft is to open and close the intake and exaust valves.
