Install the crankshaft sprocket with timing mark at the 5 o'clock position. I've been to all these shops and no one knows what the problem is on my 2011 Equinox. If you drop the socket, it will probably drop all the way down into the oil pan… I then used a really skinny headed ratchet wrench and started to loosen it. He is in the market for a new car but heard bad things about the 2. Had the first problem with fuel leaking into to oil. A new tensioner should be supplied in the fully compressed non-active state.
Some tensioners can be compressed with simple hand tools such as a wrench, and others may require a special tool. Keep in mind that this engine can cause damage to the valves if the timing chain has any problems while the engine is running so it may not be a bad idea to setup the timing system as follows and do a compression test to make sure that everything is in order there. Yes you can, but it is extremely difficult. Remove these two 10mm nuts first 3 Loosen but don't remove the studs. Locate marks on your crankshaft and camshaft gears. I don't think it's a restricted exhaust.
Remove the intake camshaft sprocket bolt and discard Figure 7. Install the notch end of the piston assembly into the J 45027-2 2. Remove the fixed timing chain guide Figure 6. Water pump chain and tensioners needed replacing because the engine, for a year, was making a percolating noise like a coffee maker on crack. There are two 13mm nuts welded onto these studs. Water pump chain and tensioners needed replacing because the engine, for a year, was making a percolating noise like a coffee maker on crack.
It could be your water pump as well. The most obvious symptom is a rattling loose noise from the oil pan. Trevor is engaged with hands-on skill sets such as fabrication and engine building, but also the theoretical discussion of design and technology. Use a 24 mm wrench to rotate the camshaft slightly, until exhaust sprocket aligns with the camshaft. I measured the 75 degrees and marked a corner of the bolt and point on the balancer with paint as a visual aid to achieve the 75 degrees. I will check tomorrow morning to see if I have a fuel leak.
When I follow all the procedures that I've read I get a P0300 code when the engine idles for a few minutes. If anyone would like to contact me in reference to this please do. Feed the tool down through the camshaft drive chain to rest on the timing chain. They should have heard the rattle on start up, and not wasted time on diagnosis. Some chains are tensioned by adjusting either the crankshaft gear or the camshaft gear, while others have an automatic tensioner.
You may find the need to replace your timing chain at some point; however with the right tools, a service manual and some mechanical know-how, you can do it yourself. I was in college at the time and the reported fuel economy more than made up for the difference in payment from my last vehicle. Then a couple of tensioners on the engine needed replacing because of a rattling noise. Now there will be room to move the throttle cable bracket to allow clearance for the coil pack to be removed. The hoses need to be loosened and the coolant drained for the purpose of removing the water pump in a later step. I now have the valve cover and timing chain cover back off of the engine.
If the timing chain tensioner is not in the compressed state, perform the following steps: 27. If it is a V6 or V8 Chevy, you will take off the harmonic balancer on the front of the engine, which is the bottom pulley. With perfect driving, maximizing the miles per gallon, I could get it up to an average of 29-30mpg on the highway. If not, you will have to remove and reset everything. A tensioner in the compressed state will measure 72 mm 2.
We had the rough idling for a couple of years, and were always told that it was a normal sound. Sounds like something may be on its way out, and a rattle does indicate a chain. Most of the time, modern vehicles will only be able to use synthetic oil because they have to meet certain specifications to ensure the oil flows quickly, and with the proper pressure. Squeeze the hose clamps with pliers and slide them back onto the hose. I'll drive it a few days to work before I give back to my daughter but hopefully bought a little more time for her. This has no effect on sealing ability of the gasket.
Torque this bolt to 74 ft lbs plus 75 degrees. Drove fine for a week then the timing chain issue happened. Using the J 45027-1 1 , turn the ratchet cylinder into the piston. It could get up to 34 mpg Hwy. Kevin, yeah that's what i heard as well that there was no specific interval for the timing chains on our car i just know and this is unless i have been misinformed is that the chains tend to stretch at 100,000 miles and that that is what causes the headaches down the road.
Will not buy a Chevy again, I don't care how good their new commercials are looking. My 6 year old car just died? So now I'm less concerned with a leak and think this is more of a sensor issue. If any damage appears, replace the tensioner. These prices should be used as a guide only, as every garage will have their own pricing structure. After pulling the timing chain cover, removing the chain, re-setting the chain according to the instructions provided by ssicarman and confirming that it was all set correctly, I started the engine.
