Question about 2000 Chevrolet S-10
The 6mm allen bolts on the drivers side vavle cover bolt nearest the power brake assist is difficult to get to. All of the others were relatively easy. What is the trick to removing this one?
The timing tensioner broke and I need to get this thing apart to see how bad it really is. From the compression readings I have, I suspect bent valves.
If you have the knowledge on this and would share the method used I would appreciate your advice. Thanks,

that vehicle is listed as an interference motor which means it could have bent the vavles or even hurt the pistons. One way to check is pull the plugs and perform a leak down test if air leaks out the intake or ex you have bent valves. Also if you know someone with a good quality bore scope you can put it in the plug holes and look at the valves and the pistons. How much to fix is hard it depends on how many miles are on the truck and what shape it is in to see if it is worth it to do. If the vehicle has very high miles you may want to look at a junkyard motor with lower miles may be the best route but if you get one with over 60000 miles on it replace the t-belt before installing to be on the safe side

No they are not compatible. They changed the crank between 95 and 96. I have a 96 that needed an engine swap and the dealer that I bought it from was paying for the engine, he bought a 95 engine and after a month of trying the mechanic said no way no how, the crank between the two is different.
