Hi there, I was working on my car listed above GTS model timing chain. Forgot to mention I recently bought it from a previous owner. I removed the timing chain cover I tried to line up the dots from the cam shaft pulley and the two sprockets on top. In order for it to line up the sprockets the cam shaft pulley mark had to be turned a little bit more in order to line up. My question how can I make all marking line up?
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros. Com.

This can be a bit tricky because excessive slack on the chain can cause it to move the crank pulley. The chain should have three painted links (marks), one for each cam and one for the crank. Take your time and align colored links with the timing marks. The marks are positioned an exact number of links between each. Once you get all of them to align, it will be good.

Here are the directions specific to your vehicle and this job. It explains everything in detail. All attached pictures correlate with these directions.

Thank you for the information. Now that I installed the timing chain when I go and turn on the car it starts off at a high RPM 2000 RPM actually. Then as it's heating up to temperature there's a there starts to begin a clicking noise coming from the valve cover. Where do I need helping is where could it be coming from here's a little video of it

HI and thanks for using 2carpros.com

The engine sounds like it is running good, just the idle issue and the tick. Have you driven the vehicle since the work was done? The computer may have to relearn different components and it could take a few miles.

Next, are you certain there are no engine vacuum leaks? It's very easy to leave a hose off when doing as much work as you have already done. That will cause an idle issue.

Here is a link that shows how to check for vacuum leaks.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-use-an-engine-vacuum-gauge

I also noticed that you have a cold air intake. Make sure all the connections are tight at the throttle body.

The ticking sounds like a lifter has collapsed or is collapsing. Are you using the correct viscosity oil in the engine? Also, is the oil clean and full?

One last questions, in the video, I heard you say "it does it itself". Is the engine idle speed looping up and down? Also, let me know if the check engine light is staying on.

Let me know.

No I haven't the reason is because of the ticking noise coming from the valve cover, I didn't want to damage or possibly already damaged any of my he components inside the engine. There was a leak coming from the oil ventilation connected to the valve cover(fixed). Yes I double checked all connections are tight and yes I changed the oil about 1000 miles ago. Yes the idle is looping up and down but there's no check engine light, that weird to me.

Hi again.

The idle issue may be fixed by driving. It sounds like the idle air control solenoid needs relearned. That should happen with driving.

As far as the noise, I understand your concern. Can you let me know if you replaced the chain tensioner and guide? Also, if you have an automotive stethoscope, see if you can determine if in fact the noise is coming from the top (valve cover) or the timing chain cover (near where the tensioner is located)

Yes, I did replace the tension-er and guides and all three sprockets. I do have a auto stethoscope, it is a bit tricky because it sounds like if it is coming from the middle part of the valve cover but when I moved the stethoscope a little bit lower close to the fuel injector sounds louder. I also moved the stethoscope on to the fuel line and it has the same sound and it has the same volume as it did when I had it on the lower part of the valve cover. I test drive it yesterday and when I accelerate it sounds like it is sucking in air and does not really have power to it and it overheated on me coming from the water pump.

If you hear a vacuum noise, have you checked for a leak? Also, recheck to make sure the air inlet tube is attached properly. One other thing. Can you tell aprox where the vacuum sound may be coming from? The idea that is overheated makes me question a few things such as timing, a plugged catalytic converter (which can make a hissing sound). You are certain the timing is correct?

The overheating found my problem replaced water pump, the vacuum leak also fixed but what concerns me is that clicking noise. I do get a check engine light with code P1349. Also what if my timing is off how do I go about adjusting it to have it on the right timing?

Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros. Com.

The code indicates a problem with timing. See picture 1.

Now this can be caused by a few things. There is an oil control valve which could be restricted, a problem with the Variable Valve timing controller, or simply the cam timing is incorrect. Take a look at picture 2.

Since you were into the cam timing, that is where I would start. To do this, you need to follow the directions I listed above. I have a feeling you are off by one tooth on a cam sprocket and it is causing the noise, or something is blocking oil pressure to the oil control valve.

Let me know if you have other questions.

Welcome back:
Honestly, it sounds like it is starved for oil. If you had a broken lifter, it would make a lot of noise, but also it would most likely have a misfire. Although noisy, it looks to be running smoothly.

With that in mind, we need to check the oil control valve. First, I am going to supply the directions for checking it on the vehicle. Picture 1 correlates with these directions.

_______________________________
CAMSHAFT TIMING OIL CONTROL VALVE

ON-VEHICLE INSPECTION

INSPECT OIL CONTROL VALVE RESISTANCE
a. Remove the No. 2 cylinder head cover.

B. 2ZZ-GE:
Disconnect the 2 PCV hoses.

C. Disconnect the oil control valve connector.

D. Using an ohmmeter, measure the resistance between the terminals.
Resistance: 6.9-7.9 Ohms at 20 ¬ C (68 ¬ F)
If the resistance is not as specified, replace the valve.

E. Reconnect the oil control valve connector.
F. Reinstall the V-bank cover.

_______________________________
Of you find it is bad, here are the directions for replacement. All remaining pictures correlate with these directions.

Please check that. Also, it isn't uncommon for them to get plugged, so pay attention to the oil gallery and the oil control valve.

It truly sounds like an oil related issue (or lack of oil)

Let me know what you find, I have a feeling that is the issue.

Take care and good luck.

PS: Although it is hard to tell from a recording, I wouldn't run the engine until we determine the issue.

You are right got the clicking noise to go away but now the code 1349 keeps illuminating. I cleaned both ocv and the filters, I drove the car but seems to be lacking in power. It does not drive the same as before the timing chain replacement.

Hi.

I have a feeling either there is still something blocking oil pressure to the VVT actuator or the part was damaged due to lack of oil. If the VVT isn't advancing timing, you will lack power.

I have attached the entire diagnostic process for the code you mentioned. See the pictures attached. If you read through the following, everywhere the is "image open" is where the procedure was located. I placed them in the same order as they were listed.

CIRCUIT DESCRIPTION

DTC Detecting Condition
image open

VVT system controls the intake valve timing to proper timing in response to driving condition.

ECM controls OCV(Oil Control Valve) to make the intake valve timing properly, and, oil pressure controlled with OCV is supplied to the VVT controller, and then, VVT controller changes relative position between the camshaft and the crankshaft.

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

HINT:
- If DTC P1349 is displayed, check left bank VVT system circuit.
- Read freeze frame data using TOYOTA hand-held tester or OBD II scan tool. Because freeze frame records the engine conditions when the malfunction is detected, when troubleshooting it is useful for determining whether the vehicle was running or stopped, the engine warmed up or not, the air-fuel ratio lean or rich, etc. At the time of the malfunction.
