Dealer mechsnics r usually average. Have a datastream run st a private garage. It shows values of whats occuring. Just guessing on a part dont do it. A factory scanner specific for the vehicle must b used
you are have what is known as a dry tappet. last for 5-10 min on startup. now you can leave it or you can change the oil and filter. when changing oil I mean you use oil treatment first to remove the old oil deposits. then change the oil. the only other way is expensive removing the cam's that involve taking of the timing chain and other parts to remove the dry tappet and clean out the vaine. but usaly a good oil change will fix this problem..
if you set the timing and put it on you may be lucky enough that it might be fine how ever most of those motors bend valves if it makes any noise disassemble and replace head some can even bust pistons good luck
yes it is... usually a timing belt or chain has to be changed every 100,000 miles... if it doesn't then it might crack of...then it might also bust the engine like your mechanic told you... if you did change it on 100,000 miles them i don't think what your mechanic said is true...it might be an electric problem... Good Luck!
Sounds like you have the timing belt off a notch or two. Set the crank pulley at the notch and TDC then remove the top screws on the belt cover and pull the cover back far enough to shine a light to check the cam pulley mark against the notch it should align with !
