1995 1.6L, 1995–98 1.5L and 1.8L (except K8) DOHC Engines


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the timing belt covers.
  3. Turn the crankshaft until the timing mark on the crankshaft sprocket aligns with the timing mark on the oil pump.
  4. On the 1.5L engine, ensure that the Z mark on the camshaft sprocket is pointing straight up and the two notches are even with the valve cover gasket surface.
  5. On the 1.6 and 1.8L engines, align the E and the I marks on the camshaft sprockets are aligned with the marks on the backing plate (they should point down and towards each other at approximately a 45°angle).
