It s a 1.6l. Well the camshaft lobes tell you the valve position. If the toe of the lobe is on the hydraulic tappet or lifter then the valve is fully open. As for the crankshaft I am a sure you very well you get that information from the timing mark on the crankshaft pulley. My issues with the car were lazy take off, EGR valve rattling at idle, Exhaust not burning brownish and remaining blackish a sign for retarded timing.I did a compression test and got 90psi on all 4 cylinders. This was very strange because The engine block was horned and new rings put in. It was losing some compression into the inlet manifold thereby partially compressing the air due to the inlet valves closing very late. Earlier on I asked A QUESTION WHEN DOES AN INLET VALVE FULLY OPEN. You replied with the answer that I know to be right, BBDC.
