    Default Cdti 120 timing

    Camshaft pulley timing mark is not lined up with the mark on the cam cover, should it be or not ??? Car is getting 58.8 mpg on a long run even though its about 6-7 teeth out on cam timing, I'm stumped, do I line it up or leave it ??? Could this be causing my bad idle and smoke on cold starts, please help

    Are you sure your looking at correct markings? 6 teeth would be a lot of trouble I doubt you'd get down the drive never mind a run

    I used to make these engines for a living. If memory serves me right theres a mark on the crank pully that "looks" like a timing mark but isnt, and indeed theres a notch on the oil pump body which looks like it should be the mark to line it up. Neither of these are actually timing marks and when lined up will have the timing out by several teeth. Theres a proper kit for timing the crank and cam, you remove the bottom left oil pump bolt and insert a stud in its place, a timing tool then fits over the stud and matches up with the round protruding bit on the crank pully when cylinder 1 is at tdc. Lol thats the proper way but everyone just uses tip-ex to mark the crank's position when the cam is timed and then rip the belt off

    well all done, i stripped it all down again then used the timing marks on the new belt i had and all was good. (when i was at a vauxhall service department yesterday i got told there is never timing marks on the belts). the only rattle on the car is the dmf which will be done in the next few weeks, managed to get a gm kit for £480 trade price, not sure wether to try it myself or stick it in somewhere and pay for it to be done.

    Do egr valves have to be programmed or are they plug and play ???
