asked by on August 17, 2017

The 8th digit VIN number is 5 to my honda civic LX sedan, its a 2015 single head cam 1.8A engine, what are the timing mark please?

My car has 14000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Here is the directions for replacing the timing chain. The manual groups all 1.8 engines together and you will need to pick the one that is for your engine in the timing chain instructions.

If there are external timing indicators/marks, they are typically located on the engine block near the crankshaft pulley. I would recommend researching the procedure for setting time so that these marks will make sense to you. Consider YourMechanic as timing belts can be replaced at your home or office.
