Have a Car Question? Ask a Mechanic Online.
Not to drive you crazy but I've been working on this car for almost a week. (ot stands for over turn?) So after I move the crankshaft the 15 degress it'll allow me to put the belt on and make it so I can rotate the engine through a cycle like the book says I should be able to? And if so does this mean I'm ok to start the vehicle after this? I have to reassemle the whole engine basically to get to the point where I can start it. It's the only car my family has got and i Can't afford to have a mechanic look at it. I've done the timing on other cars before I've just never had this problem.
