Ok so when i "short" out the computer to adjust the timing the mark I made on the belt moves all over the place. I marked it according to the red middle mark on the crank pulley. Is that right? When i say the mark moves is it jumps forward making a loop around the alternater and then comes back around the crank pulley at each flash of the light. It makes a complete loop around the belt at each flash progressing around and around.

Not sure if that makes sense to anyone. Any question just reply or PM me. Thanks guys!!

yep, im sure. I already did all those things. I also asked everyone in the garage to check but they gave the WTF look and said they had no idea.

On a side note I switched the two coolant sensor wires and fix the O2 sensor. So those things are fixed. Forgot to check if the fan still comes on automatically.

You're not supposed to mark the belts. You watch the marks on the crank pulley using a timing light and compare them to the pointer on the timing belt cover.

no no no...

There are 3 little marks on the crank pulley already.
The yellow crud on my belt is probably spillage from marking the pulley.

3 dashes righr besides eachother on each side of the pulley rim. And one a bit further down. It's literally just millimeters from the edge of the belt.

The red middle mark is -exactly- the mark you're looking for!

what bas said: adding to that, the 2 marks next to the red middle mark are +2 degrees advanced, and -2 degrees retard.

there is also 1 more mark on the pulley that should line up with the arrow on the belt cover which is used for setting your cam timing when installing a timing belt, do not confuse this mark with the 3 ;-)
