On my van my timing belt just recently broke on me and I bought a brand new timing belt timing belt tension-er. The water pump was replaced and when I put my timing belt on and lined everything up when I started my engine it was knocking like shaking heavily. So I had to turn it off. I am assuming that my crankshaft is misaligned and I know that my car is a non-interference engine, so I was wondering if I take my timing belt off and rotate my crankshaft around to find top dead center cylinder one, would that mess up anything? Also, I would like to know on my vehicle if there is any special procedure to get my camshaft lined up other than using the timing marks? The reason why I asked this question is I would like to make sure that my valves in number one cylinder are closed when lining up my timing marks.
have the same problem?
