Replacing timing belt.

Car: Acura, Legend, 1994, 3.2     -    Back to Fix-It    -    Acura Legend Repair Manuals

Q.I have a 1994 acura legend.
When I replace the timing belt I had the service manual and made sure all the things that were suppose to line up were. I do not understand what I did wrong if they were lined up. I had a Mechanic there with me making sure everything was right too. the other part to my question is are those marking always suppose to line up every time the car is started. to they go back to those positions when the car is shut off?

Answer Hello, the timing marks line up every 2 revolutions of the crankshaft(the cam sprockets are twice as large as the crankshaft sprocket) The alignment is only important when you install the timing belt, as long as it was lined up properly at that time you should be good, the engine stays in whatever position it was at when it was shut off.
So, what is the problem you're having?
Also, If you love your legend check out Acuralegend.org they have a great community.
