I have full access to ShopKeyPro for my service manual.
I'm a former auto technician with 25yrs experience, now teaching automotive tech, so not my first rodeo.
Appreciate the suggestions, but looking for some corners to cut, avoiding IF POSSIBLE -(please Lord) motor out timing component replacement.
Having no codes relating to timing issues frustrates me going down this timing colored road...
You mean "LostKeyPro" right?
Is the ECU possibly FOD and maybe not reporting all the faults it should?
Have you read your compression gauge correctly and has it been cross checked with another?
As an instructor you should know better than to seek to take shortcuts, like not doing the aforementioned & before changing an extensive amount of all these parts.
When setting up the timing with RTFB, you can indeed create such a cheat sheet & with use of a dial indicator of piston overall depth at rock point/TDC/BDC and with protractor degree wheel of each of the cams and lobe offsets to check chain slack, base timing and key or virtual key-way or press fits, no?
Call me crazy, however, nope asshole is fine, was not work history indicating that someone was already in there and FUBAR FOD something?
(oddly only the right bank was dirty, left bank was very clean??)
FOR SHAME NEGATING JPPSG ............
Mechanical tests will always indeed win!
