Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did the oil pump replace. and i have the code camshaft and crankshaft incorrelation after I put the timing back.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
im not sure how the dots have to be align in the left and right window
Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

Are you trying to verify it with the timing cover installed? If so and you have the P0016 code then your timing is off and you will need to remove the timing cover to set it correctly...

Brad

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i know but can't find any info to align the marks with one link mark.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will take them out the timing cover and valve covers
Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

WHat are you referring to when you say "align the marks with one link mark"?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
upper chain does have only two dots one for cam and one for middle sprocket.
Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

The chain from the crankshaft to the idler is the primary chain, the chain to the camshafts is the secondary chain.. Which one are you having issues with?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
secondary chain
Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

Ok on the secondary chain it only lines up with the camshaft and no other marks, you don't time the chain to the idler...

Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

Read over the timing procedure I attached..

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what about primary chain? the 2 marks on chain should be up?
Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

On primary chain the 2 marks on the chain go to the idler, and the 1 mark goes to the crankshaft...

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
why they have this marks for the secondary chain on the idler after you align on the camshaft? the chain is does have one mark for cam and one looks like is for idler.
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

Hello! I thought this might help..

Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

That looks good, now is the crankshaft lined up at the bottom? How do the camshafts look?

Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

The customer did not post that link.

Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.
