Can I get the 8th VIN# ***** see which engine you have?

A noise from within the valve cover would be a timing chain, valve spring, or rocker arm issue.

Have you removed the valve cover for a visual inspection yet?

1. You have by now noticed you have been charged the question value for asking a question.

2. Please understand, often I have to post many questions (?) or answers to you, to help you with this concern.

5. I try my best to be online 365 days a year from 3pm-3am central time.

6. I'm helping you from my home. I do not work for or at Just Answer, nor do they pay me, the customer pays me.

7. I have no control over the time it took someone to first contact you, nor the fees, or emails you get.

8. I want you pleased with the website and me (EXCELLENT / 5 STARS). I would also like to be rated the same. You should see this on your screen.

Thanks for coming here, and giving us and me a shot.
