Welcome, I am Chris (aka-Moose)

Can I get the make and model?

Currently the symptoms are pointing to a timing chain issue or cam bearing failure.

As mentioned in my first response, I would stay in contact with you. I've noticed you have not rated the post. So I assume you were not pleased with my help. I hate that you have spent money to get an answer but left not happy. Can you tell me why, or can I help more. If its more help you need just reply and we can pick up where we left off.
