My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Are you asking how to align the timing components on this model here?

Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.

thanks for answer me , but , i really need to know how to syncro intake phase gear , because i was all moved from it´s original position , ( i didn´t find why happen this ) , becasue in AllData and Mitchell said yo have to mark the position of the old phaser gear against camshaft before removed and put a new one , but right know , i don´t have any clue what was the original position of intake phase gear to put it in the original position ....that´s my main problem , right know i have all blocked with the cam kit ( crankshaft and cams )

and in the other hand , how could this happened , because the inner part of high pressure fuel pump , had a broken pieze like a dime ....could the high pressure fuel pump be the guilty of this camshaft timing mess after a mount and 1500miles of use ?

I apologize for the delay.

Unfortunately I don't have the info you are looking for here on this myself.I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Thanks Pete
