Double and triple check your timing marks and that bolt tightness before putting timing cover on!!
Thats my tip of the day

Thank you for this s_vares. I will be ordering parts this week. My 04 screw now has 165,000 on it and has had the phaser knock for the last 100k or so. Just recently I noticed the timming chan slap at start up and occasionaly when accelerating lightly from a stop. What else should be replaced when this deep into it? Water pump? Also is it necessary to lock the cams in place , or just start from tdc and make sure evrything is lined up when finished per your diagrams?

A little off topic, do any of you guys have the part # for the vct solenoid, flange, gasket,. I can't find it, or remember the proper part name.

The marks and links on the chain will help you line up the timing without it being at TDC.

You can insure the cams dont turn by putting vice grips on them (spots in between lobes)

Probably longer. You have to remove the front cover to get to the tensioners.

Is it harder work? I do have a mechanical family but I don't want to mess with the timing does it still mess with the timing to change the tensioners
