If memory serves me correctly, the timing marks will be behind the timing belt cover. There will be marks on the gears and also marks on the block. Line the Top Gear with the top mark and the bottom gear with the bottom mark. Please note that you will need to undo the battery for a few minutes and then reconnect. This allows the computer to reset itself. Hope this helps

What are timing marks for 1989 Plymouth Voyager?

the marks are very vague and hard to see, the timing is a little more complicated than some this size. Its supposed to be 10 degrees out and the cam has an awkward hole that has to be straight up. the other timing marks on the intermittent and the crank should be facing each other, still the marks are hard to see on them so be careful and good luck. If you add chalk to where the timing marks are on the crankshaft with chalk and wipe the excess off, this will make the timing marks easier to see. The marks are recessed in the crank and the chalk will fill them up. Hope this helps you!

Can you tell me the timing marks on a 1989 ford probe 22L GL?

Timing marks? There is a timing mark on the main crankshaft pulley as well as marks on the timing belt cover to line it up with. There is also marks on the cam gear, with the #1 and that arrow being most important, as well as an arrow or other mark on the cylinder head to line it up with. All of these need to line up in order for the timing to be correct. Then the distributor can be moved left or right to fine tune the timing to spec.. -Shaun

Where are the timing marks on a 1989 Toyota Tercel so that the ignition timing can be adjusted at the distributor?

There typically isn't any timing marks at the distributor. It is possible to slightly advance or retard the ignition (spark) timing by rotating the distrubitor but as far as timing marks go, the only that you will find will be right above the camshaft sprocket and the harmonic balancer (crankshaft pully). possible one more for the oil pump or countershaft.

How do you change the timing belt on 1989 ford escort?

the timing belt is located on the left side of the engine in the engine bay. Most mechanics will probably have to disconnect the motor mount to elevate the engine to access the cover and belt. the cover has three bolts holding it. Of course, you would have to remove the serpentine belt to access. Be aware of the serpentine belts positioning, it seems to be a common question! Oops, misunderstood the question , thought the qestion read 1999 not 1989. Anyway, this is for the Escort ZX2!

How do you fine the timing marks for a water pump It is for a 1989 LeMans Pontiac The time belt is with the water pump?

There are no timing marks on the water pump.the only timing marks are on the crankshaft and camshaft gears.And if you're working on a quad-four engine as I suspect you are,you will need to line up the holes in the cam sprockets with the holes in the block and insert pins to hold them in place.The correct size drill bits will work good for this if you don't have the special GM tool.
