Timing Mark Alignment and Adjustment

I obsessed over it too and in the end, and after taking an entire day setting and resetting, I just went with it. I couldn’t get it spot on. Some folks can. If you rotated and nothing hangs up you are good to go. Put the key in and start it up.

    Hi, I was hoping that some-one could please help me with the timing of my Volvo S60 2.4 turbo (2003)I have replaced my timing belt the past weekend and although the car seems to be performing as usual, the engine warning light have come on. I am under the impresssion that I have not lined up the marks as I should have. I don’t have any specialised tooling. So I will appreciate it if somebody could please give me some guidelines on what is the correct way to set the timing. If at all possible please send me some pictures that shows the marks on the cam pulleys as well as the crank pulley. Also give me some advise as to how I can fix the cam pulleys without having to buy tools ( the budget in completely depleted.

    Thanks in advance.
