      camshaft gear misalignment 2007 aveo

      My timing slipped, and I have been trying to adjust the timing belt. This is as close as I can get the two gears. I don't know how to align them perfectly in the horizontal. When I try and rotate the exhaust gear one tooth cw, the spring activates and sends it 3teeth. As for the intake gear, when I try and rotate it the one tooth ccw, the bolt is loosened and starts to spin. any help would be appreciated.

      Iíve used vice grips loosely to hold the belt on the correct teeth when the cams want to snap in an undesirable direction. (On both cams. Hope this helps)

      Im not sure how the vice grips will help in my situation. Whenever I rotate the intake gear to line up at 3oclock, the spring kick in right around the 2oclock position and force the gear past the 3oclock position. How am I supposed to prevent that?
