Toyota RAV4>> Engines>> Repair of the engine 3S-FE without its removal from the car>> Installation of the piston of the first cylinder in the top dead point (TDP)
The Top Dead Point (TDP) is the highest point through which there passes the piston during the operation of the engine. Each piston reaches VMT in steps of compression and release, but the term VMT usually belongs to the piston of the first cylinder in a compression step. The tag on a pulley of the quencher of fluctuations fixed on cranked to a shaft also belongs to installation of the piston of the first cylinder in VMT in a compression step.
Installation of the piston of the first cylinder in VMT in a compression step – an essential part of process on replacement of pulleys and a gear belt, and also on adjustment of a gap of valves.
For installation of the piston in VMT it is necessary to turn a bent shaft clockwise if to take a detached view of the engine of a gear belt. Turn a bent shaft a key for the central bolt of fastening of a pulley to a bent shaft.

       PREVENTION
Before installation of the piston of the first cylinder in VMT, switch off ignition and install the gear shifting lever in neutral situation.

You make installation of the piston of the first cylinder in VMT in the following order:
– disconnect system of ignition, having disconnected the electric socket from the ignition block;
– turn out spark plugs and establish a tip of a kompressometr in an opening for a spark plug of the first cylinder;

Fig. 3.1. Combination of a tag on a quencher of fluctuations with sign VMT on a forward cover


– turn a bent shaft clockwise and at approach of the piston of the first cylinder to VMT, компрессометр will begin to show increase in pressure in the cylinder. Continue to turn a bent shaft before combination of a tag on a quencher of fluctuations with sign VMT on a forward cover (fig. 3.1) .
After installation of the piston of the first cylinder in VMT in a compression step, turning a bent shaft on 180 °, it is possible to install other pistons in VMT in the sequence corresponding to an operating procedure of cylinders.
