Am changing the timing belt on the engine.

  • 70,000 MILES

Hi am changing the timing belt on the engine, it didnt break off so the engine is good but now that I have everything apart, in crank pulley there is a hole in the outside of the pulley so I thought that was the mark but it doesnt work, in the cam sprokets the intake has its mark but the exhaust sproket has 2 marks so how do I know wich 1 is the right 1, I try 1 of the marks in the exhaust but when I cranck the engine the intake smokes so its out of timing what should I do?

Do you
have the same problem?

Ensure crankshaft and camshaft timing timing marks are still aligned. Install the timing belt. See Fig. 6. Turn the timing belt tensioner clockwise to tension the timing belt. Turn tensioner until the pointer aligns with the notch on the rear timing belt cover. Tighten automatic tensioner bolt. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS.
Using crankshaft center bolt, turn crankshaft clockwise (as viewed from timing belt end of engine) 2 full revolutions. Ensure timing belt tensioner pointer is still aligned with notch.
If timing belt tensioner is correctly aligned, install timing belt cover. Install the engine mount bracket on the timing belt end of engine. Install crankshaft pulley. Install serpentine accessory drive belt. Install right front splash shield. Install right front wheel.
Install air filter housing. Connect air intake temperature sensor connector. Connect negative battery cable.
