Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
felpro gasket installed by a moonlighter who isn't answering his phone... I think he put some kind of sealer to keep it running long enough to sell.
Ran exhaust gas analysis of the coolant. It's leaking. I'm tearing it down .Found an extra chain tensioner sitting on shelf below the cam sprockets. I 'm ready to remove the cams
1. Any ideas on what was done wrong? torque, tightening sequence.
2. How do you secure the cam sprockets after pulling them off the cams
'preciate your help
One source asays put air to the oil source for the variable intake cam actuator to move the sprocket to the advanced position & pin it with an 1.5 mm Allen before taking tension off the tensioner. I've tried this & nothing seems to be happening, the cam & sprocket are still locked.
Is this necessary?
