Cam timing not correct on that bank. Veryify cam timing. Not sure if the engine is a "zero clearance" engine but, if so, the cam timing error may have bent some valves! Oh nooooo!

SOURCE: my right windshield wiper on my 1998 isuzu rodeo

Yes, there is linkage that connects the two wipers. A nylon ball and socket joint connects the two, it wears out and can pop apart. By removing the black plastic grate at the edge of the hood the linkage can be accessed and popped back together. This may last for quite a while if high speed and snow slop is avoided. New parts can come from dealer or junk yard.

Why head bolts torque are different from 2003 and 2005 1.8 nissan sentra?

I have never seen a code specifically identifying a blown head gasket. I checked the service manual and the procedure is the same.

4. Tighten cylinder head bolts (1) to (10) in numerical order as shown in 5 steps. Cylinder head bolts Step 1: 29.4 Nm (3.0 kg-m, 22 ft. lbs.) Step 2: 58,8 Nm (6.0 kg-m, 43 ft. lbs.) Step 3: 0 Nm (0 kg-m, 0 ft. lbs.) (loosen) Step 4: 27.4 - 31.4 Nm (2.8 - 3.2 kg-m, 21 - 23 ft. lbs.) Step 5: 50° - 55° (target: 50°) clockwise
images-xozrttqlr3qpoa0t2tmccx0o-1-0.png To confirm it is a head gasket, do a compression and/or leak down test. Wouldn't hurt to pressure test your cooling system as well.

Why is my 2001 toyota sienna overheating?

Have a compression test done on each cylinder. Possibly a blown headgasket or cracked head

I just performed a compression test on my PT Cruiser because when it died the Oil Pressure Lightindicating low pressure came on & has remained on & I was told to check the compression.

From what you are saying you have no compression on 2 cylinders . which means that the rings are broken or worn out or you have a head gasket blown on 2 pistons . . Head off sump off replace rings , Surface the head new head gasket , big work

We have a 2003 F250 thats running on 6 of 8 cylinders. My husband changed spark plugs & did compression tests. He got 0 on cylinders 2&6. Anyone have advice on what to look for next?

0 compression doesn't make any sense. it could be valves compression Rings or head gasket. I've never heard a cylinder getting 0 compression. I would do another compression test and double check it
