I just put a timimg chain an water pump in a 2001 chrysler sebring 2.7 liter engine an it will back firer at start up an not run .no matter how many times i check timing marks everytime it seems to no
\015 The timimg chain is the one that came out out of it we drove it in to change water pump.changed it but cannt get timing right sense. when we took it apart the timimg marks were two link ahead on the camshaft gears then on the primer chain but each time i put it together i put it on the brass timimg marks an it will roll while turn by hand one i put it all together an turn it over to start engine it back fires and the chain is out of its marks.the hydralic tension on primer chain is pumped an hold tension on the guide. so what or why is it doing this please help if u can\015
I just recently experienced the same problem. The timing is 180 degrees out. Unfortunately the only way to correct it is to take the engine apart again. Set the right hand camshaft to TDC by using the marks on the timing gear for that bank. The left will follow to the degree it can although you will have to manually hold the cam in position when you put the timing gear back on. Now you can remove the timing chain. The crank TDC indicator may not be right on but it will be close. Rotate the crank CW one revolution to the point the TDC marks are lined up. Now install the timing chain according to the instructions. The timing gears on the camshafts will only go on one way as the bolt holes are slightly off the extreme diameter of the gear. If you put the chain back on making sure that all the marks are proper, she'll fire on the second cylinder up. Not a fun job I know, but when everything works right, you do get a sense of satisfaction.
You likely have bent valves. Do a compression check.
