Hi I just picked up a 95 RS sedan is has a misfire in cyl 3 pulled the plug and is black with looks like soot on the plug. I have changed the cap and rotor help needed i'm at a lost on what it can be.
both cams are off to the right and the engine appears to be at TDCPic is way too small to make out anything. What exactly are you questioning about your cam timing? Additionally, we won't be able to give feedback until we know if you've put the engine at TDC, and then review your timing marks/alignment
Used a long screwdriver in cylinder one. Couldn’t check the timing marks on the bottom end due to not having time before leaving for workWhat do you mean "appears"?
Verify it. If your cam timing was that off, it wouldn't start. Hell, if it were that off and you attempted to start it, you'd have every valve bent. What steps have you taken to verify TDC?
Yes, they do. They're "interference" motors. If you were able to just install a new belt, then you're lucky.B series bend valves just by trying to start ?? I have a B20 in a 99 crv that the timing belt snapped while driving at 80 miles an hour and my daughter kept trying to start it . Then I figured belt snapped , installed new belt and been driving for over a year without any issues ..
