Thank you for the pictures.. I double checked and your EX35 does not have that one guide. So your good!

I put the timing cover back together and codes for int and exh are still there do I have to do the relearn process inorder to remove codes?
Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

The pictures you sent, did you have the engine all in time? Cause the back chains were off. I though you were showing me just the arrangement of why the guide wasn't there.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
All gears and chains were lined up before I installed front timing cover but yes I noticed that when I removed the timing cover why does the chain color index move?
Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

It takes ruffly 36 engine revolutions before all the colored links line up again.

Did you clear codes and they came back?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I cleared the codes and the came right back it almost seems like it not getting crankshaft readings or something else.
Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

What are the exact codes you are getting and yes you may need to do a Exhaust valve timing relearn.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
codes are p0011, p0021,p0014, p0024

Would you mind if we continue later this evening around 7 pm EST?

Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

Thank you for the picture.. I would like to review everything with you old pictures and new pictures and see if I can determine if this is the correct engine.

Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

Damn.. Everything looks correct! I thought maybe you had a 3.5 from a Nissan or something. But everything looks correct.

Did you try to have a exhaust valve timing relearn performed?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
it wouldn't relearn at all just like something is missing or not reading but there is no other codes.
Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

Do you know if any modification adjustments were done to the computer. Like ignition timing ?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
not that I know of.
Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

Can you see what the intake timing is reading at idle?
