I'm doing a timing belt job on this vehicle 2004 chrysler Pacifica the timing marks on the crankshaft and the right side head line up perfect but the left side head mark doesn't line up half a tooth is off is this ok?
Chrysler Mechanic: Brad, Dealership Technician replied 3 years ago
Hi,
No it can't be a tooth off or you will have issues.. Did you loosen both camshaft gears then install the belt? It should look like this:

That picture with the two dots mark on the rear timing belt cover it's for the old 3.5lt engine the Pacifica has a line not 2 dots.and it's off by half a tooth
Chrysler Mechanic: Brad, Dealership Technician replied 3 years ago
HI,
It's the same on timing. You need to put the camshaft in the middle of the 2 marks. If it's not lining up loosen the two camshafts then set the timing then tighten. It's got to be in the middle or your going to have issues.. Did you get a OEM timing belt?

It's an aftermarket belt . I'm going to get the oem better. Do you know if the oem belt come with marks ? You want me to remove the valve cover and loose the rocker arms to loose the camshaft and be able to aling the mark?
Chrysler Mechanic: Brad, Dealership Technician replied 3 years ago
HI,
I always recommend OEM parts, and you just need to loosen the camshaft sprokets so they move on the camshaft then get the timing marks alligned.. Loosing them will allow it to move slightly so you can get it in time.. Whatever you do don't run it with the marks not lined up or you could bend some valves...

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
