Looking at the engine from the front of the vehicle, find the crankshaft pulley, it should be below the fan pulley (toward the ground). There is a small mark on the crankshaft pulley. Also mounted on the engine the is a piece of metal that looks like teeth kinda looks something like this - ---vvvvvvvvvv/\vvv--- Those are your timing marks. Each tooth is one degree and the larger concave space is TDC of the compression stroke for the #1 cylinder
I have a 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue 3.5 liter, I will like to know were the Timing chain marks.
would like a picture
I could be wrong, but I have a Vortec 350 in a GMC truck and I think the computer handles the ignition timing. If your talking about valve timing I would assume there are marks on the timing gears like the days of old, but I haven't torn the timing cover off of mine yet.
on the harmonic balancer the big pully in front of the motor it will be a line the timing marks are visible from the front of the engine looks like a saw
sounds like a bad timing issue
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.
There are 3 timing marks to consider on timing the Mazda r2 just like any engine. crank timing, fuel injection timing and the valve timing. these 3 have markers to align. The crankshaft have timing marks on the pulley pointed by a pointing rod. 4 lines marks the timing. the crankshaft is dead center on the first cylinder whene the pointer is pointed on the center of the foul lines. The injection pump is marked by a line on the pulley and the notch on the plate of the front cover. The camshaft is marked the same way. Be sure that you rotate the pulley clockwise to align these marks to ensure tightness of the timing belt.
i will like to know where is the mark on a grand am 3100 grand am thx
After disassembling to expose timing belt, look for TDC and ATDC timing marks. Align them, allowing 43 centimeters. Set BTDC mark in like manner.
I don't believe there are any, Ford most likely would like you to bring the car in to one of their professionals so they can charge an arm and a leg.
sounds like your a tooth out on the belt , recheck the pins and marks.
Timing an engine requires that it have spark plugs, a diesel engine only has glow plus, no timing required. Now, if the valve to piston timing is off, you will need to replace the timing belt or chain, aligning the timing marks then. Get a repair manual like a Chilton's.
Unless you're fortunate enough to find a repair manual, doubt you'll find a diagram. The key in replacing the chain and gears is proper timing mark alignment. Have your timing marks turned towards the left side of the engine (this should be the oil filter side) and there should be twelve pins on the chain between the timing marks on the gears. If you try to align the marks like a later model engine (that is, pointing towards one another) well,...............................
There is one arrow etched in the side of the sprocket that look like this: > for the left side cam and for the right it looks like this: < They need to line up with the plastic timing belt cut outs
Waht is the engine number, size etc. I imagine it is like most other engines, in that you set the crank to TDC, and position the camshafts agaisnt the marks - fit the new belt ane then rotate the engine manaually for 2 turns, re check the marks and if all is OK, refit the covers. Roy
Modern engines with EFI don't have timing marks on the harmonic balancer. Timing is controlled by the ECU and not adjustable. On older cars, yes, we need what engine
Providing that you used a shop manuals info, everything should be working fine. However, if you did not set the timing marks to match before you removed the old belt (or even if it broke off) it won't start.Also, try reasing any trouble code from the computer, by disconeecting the neg bat terminal for like 10 secs. In reality you have not stated what made you replace the belt in the first place, understand.If it was that the belt broke off while driving, then I do hope you set the timing marks at the lower crankshaft and upper Camshaft. (there are marks for this). That's why its important to have the vehicles shop manual. Also, I hope you used a timing light to do the final touch. good luck.AnswerThe upper timing mark is really hard to see clean off the bearing housing behind the cam gear mark it with a whiteout pen or touchup paint then align the crank timing using the same method. As for your ground and resetting the ecu I hope you pulled ground before doing a timing belt>? Once you get the belt on turn the car over by hand twice min. Look and see if your timing marks align still. If they don't then pull the belt and do it again. It's easy to jump teeth.
It sounds like the timing is bad. You'll need to have a mechanic check it.
each car model will have its own way of resetting the timing but all should have some form of timing marks on pulleys/ camshafts. Refer to a workshop manual for the make /model/year of your vehicle - they are usually quite good for things like this.
If it is a gs there are little marks on the engine the left camshaft is about 11:00 and the right is about 9:00 you will see the marks if you look close enough the crank is at 12:00 there is little arrows and yellow dots on the cam sprockets The marks on the engine are like little nipples
200 for the job from friend from shop like 4 to 600
go to your local shop, they should have a program like alldata or something along its lines. if there cool they will hook u up with a very detailed diagram, but its hard to tell, due to the fact that its a professional tool and some people dont like lettin other people borrow there tools
Sounds like the engine is missing, check the plugs, wires, timing
Depends on the car but most have timing notches on the cam and the crank and you will have to rotate them to the correct area so that the timing marks match up if you list the motor I might be able to explain better but many are like this.
include engine brand and displacement but it sounds like u are trying to install a timing belt. timing pins are usually the marks used to realign the cam to crank or they what the timing gear is aliened with really hard to know with not knowing what make it is and the belt wont fit because theirs some sort of tensioner that has to be backed off
