Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer!

This is definately not an easy task.. There is no mark for the crankshaft to determine Top DEad Center. So you will have to have a Piston stop, to find it, and properly set TDC.

The job calls for removing the timing cover (here are the instructions), and then once you get in there.. here are the instructions for the chain. The job calls for 6.6 hours of labor.. so plan on being there for a while.

If you need anything else, just let me know.
