SOURCE: I have a ford f-150 and the timing chain guide was

It is possible but I would check the timing again it's easy for the gear to move, had a toyota in the other day and he did his own belt change and it was perfect except he was two teeth off on the left cam and it had no power. put it on #1 TDC compression stroke and look at the marker on the crank and put some compressed air in lightly then see if you hear air in the exhaust or intake if you do then it's tear down time if not then check the sensor but really don't think thats what you did. Did you forget to hook up a wire someplace? I have done that upon occasion when inturpted by the phone or coustmer.

SOURCE: 2003 Hyundai Elantra only has 35,000kms on it!

dear friend-your mechanic is not very convincing,did he perhaps use a pirate seal,or incorrect seal,according the km this car is still new,so it is not posssible for crankshaft to be damaged.please get a second oppion,as it might be that the leak is from somewhere else and not the seal in question.

SOURCE: i have changed the oil pump and put new timming

The timing chain? You mean the one inside the head that drives the intake cam from the exhaust cam? Or do you mean the timing BELT and tensioner, that time the cams relative to the crank?

P0011 means the timing is over-advanced (if you were doing timing belt/chain work, it's probably not on correctly and one of the cams is advanced relative to the other one, or the cams are advanced relative to the crank). If that's the case, the solution means tearing it back apart and timing it again.

SOURCE: I just replaced all timming

TIMMING IS NOT ADJUSTABLE. IT IS ALL COMPUTER CONTROLED. THE ONLY TIMMING IS THE MARKS ON THE CHAIN AND GEARS.

Hi. It could be the cam adjuster or the Timing chain stretched.

Timming chain broke


place no 1 piston at TDC compression stroke. There are procedures for the timing of the balance shafts but if it is only the timing chain I will go to that
Align uniquely coloured chain link with intake camshaft sprocket timing mark-- INT--. ( this will be pointing at the 2 o'clock position)
install timing chain and sprocket as an assembly
align first matching coloured chain link crankshaft timing mark (5 o'clock position)
align the second matching coloured chain link with exhaust cam shaft timing mark--EXH ( at the 11 o'clock position
There is a special procedure to reset the balance tensioner and it is different to the timing chain procedure.

To reset cam shaft timing chain tensioner push piston fully and turn clockwise until locked
Once the tensioner has been compressed ensure the distance from end to end is 2.83 inches . If not repeat the resetting process
vehicles 30.000 miles the tensioner is released when the engine is first started . In vehicles over 30.000 miles manually release tensioner by tapping the plunger
Note cam shaft and crank shaft sprockets bolts MUST only be used once. If you want details on the balancer chain procedure then make a comment in the box
use tension wrench and a degree gauge
cam bolts are tensioned to 63 ft lbs + 30 degrees
crank shaft pulley is tensioned to 74 ft lbs + 75 degrees

2004 passat engine sounds like a deisel all of a sudden and has some engine lag


Hi, depending on engine fitted it is most likely the cam chain tensioner has collaped or failed. On a twin cam engine like a 1.8 t or a 32 valve V6 there is a chain driving a second chain in the rear of the cylinder head. These chains are tensioned by a oil pressure pressurized piston pushing on a bridge under the chain.

If it collapses, the chain/s become very loose and you will hear a loud clacking noise. It can also collapse due to low oil pressure.

VW is familiar with this problem and the repair involves first checking oil pressure, cold thro' warm. If it is around 85 to105 psi cold and 28 to 35 psi warm at idle, then this indicates tensioner piston is faulty or tensioner guide has broken off.

If oil presssure is good and engine is running synthetic oil...as it should ...then tensioneris suspect. I have also seen these engines with the screen under the tensioner partly blocked . If on removal of valve cover prooves tensioner has collapsed or guide shoe broken or warn then a new tensioner must be installed.

If oil pressure is too low at under 12 psi at warm idle then oil pump is worn and/or engine is worn. Also low oil pressure can be caused by fuel in the oil making it very thin.

If the screen under the tensioner is partly plugged up, then the oil pan must also be removed and cleaned out otherwise plugging will happen again.

To remove and install the tensioner a SST ( Special Service Tool.) is required to compresse the tensioner piston to allow it to be removed from under the cam chain and again compressing the new tensioner to be installed. Cams or chain do not need removing on this job.

Most import shops can handle this as long as they are equipped with the SST tensioner tool.

I have an 03 nissan altima engine makes loud clicking noise


1st check the the oil level and the vehicle's oil type.(owners manuel) 5w30-10w30
10w 30 is a thicker oil and could possibly be causing this.(Moves more freely through the engine heats the oil)

Car problem with 91 buick regal


Replace the timming chain, gears, and magnet. With that cat getting that hot it has to be out of time. When the cam sensor picks up no signal, ecu can't control timming and reverts back to a preset,fixed base # .

Low oil pressure light comes on and goes off


the noise is the chain tensioner in the cylinder head between the two camshafts. it is a job for a proffesional shop. the 1.8t passats had an oiling problem and were fixed with a larger oil filter. some times you have to remove the oilpan and replace the oil pickup tube.
