HI NEw to this forum. can anyone tell me where the key ways should be positioned on the pulleys on a 2.9 tdi sedona 2001 and also a pic of timing set up ive got autodata but if anyone has a better pic please elt me know
if you go on kia forum . com i guy posted me a diagram failing this i have a disc for the 2.9 crdi the only difference is the electric pump on crdi timing is the same have just rebuilt my engine using the disc
READ ON THE CAMSHAFTS THEY SAY INLET AND EXHAUST AND KEYWAY SHOULD BE AT 90 DEGREES TO MARKINGS ON CAM NOT OPPOSIT LIKE KIA TOLD ME. IF CAMS ARE IN WRONG IT WILL BLOW BACK THROUGH INLET MANIFOLD BUT IF PULLEYS ARE ON WRONG IT WONT IT WILLL JUST SOUND NORMAL BUT WONT START
If you have diesel at the injectors then I suggest you retime the engine with it 1 or 2 teeth out on the injector pump marks .The diagrams show the mark for the injector pump to be at 30'clock.In practice if timed like this they will not start. The timing just needs to be past 3 o'clock.I had 3 that I had to do this to.
hi, can you please explain this further, as i have the same problem. first it was blowing exhaust fumes through the inlet and now after changing the keyways it sounds normal but wont start. many thanks
to "time up" a 2.9 crdi you need the dowels on the end of each cam at 12"oclock and the marks on the pulleys pointing toward each other , the crankshaft at 12"oclock( there is a cut out on the rear if the sprocket) , the fuel pump mark is just past 3"oclock (and yes is damn hard to see) but you can lock the pulley by screwing in a long m6 bolt but don't tighten too much. fitting the belt can be quite tight especially if you have the type with the guide plate on the inlet cam but if you remove the small idler at the rear below the exh pulley it helps a lot.if you have exh gasses in the inlet then you have fitted the pulley wrong (choice of 2 slots)
If you click on his profile he has not been on here since 2009 so doubt he will answer
