Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT
Having problem with the timing chain
i replace the timing chain but can't seem to put the intake and exhaust and polly in sync or time b/c i start but it seem that their no spark and only hear i chain moving
If you have a dohc quad four type engine, if you did not get the chain alignment absolutely correct, chances are that you have severe engine damage if you cranked it over. Both cam gears must be locked while putting chain on and must be perfect (not close) otherwise the first time you crank it the valves will hit the pistons. (did you get the tensioner on correctly?) Don't attempt to start it, tear it down again.
