- scanned ecm. no codes present. started vehicle while cold to listen for timing chain rattle. none detected. road tested vehicle. No Codes were set and vehicle performed well. It is common for these engines to need a timing chain assembly when p0008 and p0017 are set. checked oil level and oil quality. engine oil level is low and oil appears oxidized. oil change is severely passed due based on oil change sticker millage. Because timing chain did not rattle we could start by performing an engine performance restoration service with a true synthetic oil change and performance oil changer service. If services are not successful further diagnosis will be required and very possibly timing chain replacement will be required.
- CLEAN PISTON RINGS TO IMPROVE ENGINE COMPRESSION, CLEAN OIL PASSAGES AND HYDRAULICALLY ACTUATED TIMING AND EMISSION COMPONENTS.
