Just guessing but I would say someone worked on the engine and didn't get something right. Option 1 Timing Chain was replaced and the marks on the gears were not aligned correctly. Option 2 The distributor was replaced and not lined up correctly with the piston on the compression stroke instead of the exhaust stroke. Good Luck and Remember.

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

What are the cam timing marks?

Hello Camshaft timing marks work in correspondance with the crankshaft timing marks, when setting the timing on your vehicle it is very important that the camshaft and crankshaft are set correctly, usually using pins, or locks to hold in position when fitting a new timing belt. This insures that the pistons and valves do not come in contact with each other when running and the inlet and exhaust valves open in the correct order. hope this helps. Colin.

The timing marks are there the one on the cranckshaft is harder to find you'll need to take the pully of the crank for the surp. belt in order to see the timing mark on it. In order to do that you'll have to lock the flywheel in place to losen that bolt its easier if you have two people for that.Dont for get the crank turns twice for everyone turn of the cam so make sure the #1 piston is at TDC.

What are the timing marks for a 1988 Audi 80?

I depends on engine you have in your car. All timing marks are located on the crankcase pulley, cam pulley and, distributor has timing marks as well. In order to view all timing marks, be sure to have the front bumper removed & timing belt covers removed. In order to turn the crankcase by hand. Have a bottle of whiteout ready to place on timing marks for easy refferance. Always crank your wrench clockwise during timing mark lineup, remove sparkplugs to lose the engines compression. Whatever you do, do not remove the timg belt until you have all refferance marks lined up. At the crankcase, you will notice a permant refferance marker, ture the crankcase until you see a small notch on front of the pully. Once you find it, view the timing marks for the cam pulley. if the notch mark on the pulley don't line up with it's own refferance marker, turn the crankcase till these marks line up together. If they line-up, remove the distributor cap from the distributor and check to see if the rotor button lines-up with the number 1 notch on the car's distributor. If so, it's time to replace the water pump, crankcase seals, camshaft seals and install a new thermostat. Be sure all the pulley are locked into place to keep from moving when installing the new timing belt. To save yourself any headaches, buy a factory manual that has all the torque specs when replacing everything.
