amc49 Running condition is all that matters, the variable timing means on shutdown sometimes a cam pops back a bit against belt because of valvespring forces. It pulls right back up as motor comes up to speed.

In short, normal.

Now it dont do this every time and also if it moves out of the window as soon as I re start the car the pointer will correct it self and move back to the correct postion. Is this normal ?
Have you ever replaced the tendioner? The spring in there actually slowly wears out. To the point that they actually recommend replacing the tensioner every time you replace the belt.
