Is there something special i have do with the hydraullic tensioner such as resetting the piston?
yes,,you will need to get the oil out of it,,so it will go back
give me a second..i may have instructions for this also
here we go
you can set the tensioner without the tool if you get the oil out,,,,,
the tool does make it easier..
auto zone and most parts stores will rent you the tool
I am concerned about not setting the tensioner properly (may create problems if seized up)How does it get the piston to eject on vehicle startup and if done by the garage how much for parts and labour?
it will eject itself,,with the oilpressure
i will get you the labor time..the price will depend on how much your mechanic will charge per hour
just a second
it takes about 6.5 hours
So it is quite involved.Do you have a image showing the timing marks and should i replace the timing chain at the same time since it has to be removed completely?
well...the cain may be ok,,,but you do need to look at the guides...and replace anything that is worn
Okay, thanks for all your help
you are very welcome
