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
would like a picture
I have a 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue 3.5 liter, I will like to know were the Timing chain marks.
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
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.
sounds like a bad timing issue
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.
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.
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.
sounds like your a tooth out on the belt , recheck the pins and marks.
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.
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.
