OK looking it up now for you
how many miles on engine
what size engine please ?
OK, around 100,000 miles the chain should be replaced.
Are you attempting to do this your self
Is there noise?
Your engine is an interferance engine which means if chain breaks bending valves and possible put a hole in a piston or two mat happen
might happen sorry typo
No noise, the car dashboard was blanking out then the car would cut off while driving but would restart. after a few times it did not start. The dealer said that the O2 sensor got hot and the catalytic converter was damaged this in turn shorted out the computer and the fuses or the idpm so I had all this stuff replaced and still not start just a ttrning of the starter no gas
Is it turning over faster than usual?
Is the engine turning over faster than usual?
hard to say its turning but does not seem to be getting any gas
the car has been sitting up for a year due to the extensive repair list I got from the dealer I I just recently got the work done the car is still at the dealer
this is terrible and the dealer did not tell you why it does not start? That is not right.
I would take this up with the dealer manager, Really!!
You paid all this money after their diagnosis that the repair would correct your starting situation
Well they said it might be the timing chain but they want to put it on the computer for 62.00 now thats a 3000 dollar repair if thats what they come up with any advice on how what I should do next
OK, listen can you do this work
I need you to pull the timing cover
can you do this?
Correct I did not let them do the work but I got my parts from them except my exhaust work, and they were just to reprogram the keys and change the battery cable.
no I would have to get it done
I want to see if all points are to the correct as far as timing marks to rule out timing chain or if timing is off.
I would take it to someone of honest repair and ask them to check the timing chain, if the have the right equipment they can check this very quickly
The dealer said it was off by 10 deg thats all Iknow
that is more than enough to cause problems
Give this revised dealer TSB to who you take it to
Have I answered your question?
And do you have any more questions for me?
Ok I'll try how many hours would it be to repair a timing chain
OK, hold and I will look this up in my pro data software, Hold please
