My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If you have not inspected wiring on the engine to the engine sensors and components especially the timing components this needs done.If a fault is found with any of the wiring this will need to be repaired to correct this issue here.If this has already been checked and found to be o.k. let me know so we can continue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

I asked for this a long time ago and paid for no response, the client has already left weeks ago, I tested all electrical , ran signature tests , wave forms, ground circuits , and all work fine, oil and filter good, pressure good , replaced vanos , good, found no big problems , 28b8 was code , it doesn't look out of time on cams , but all I come up with is possible cam timming or chain stretch , but like I said I paid for this service and this is the first response back weeks later . so I am in no need of help now would just like money back as to no service the day I asked . thank you
