My suggestion is to take the go-cart to a bicycle shop. They should be able to check it out and put the chain back on.

Peugeot timeing

its a long process for the novice. I suggest getting a repair manual at your local autoparts store to help in your troubles. The process includes finding the timing marks, partial disassembly of engine to access timing belt/chain. To sum up the process, you disconnect your battery, remove timing chain cover, line up timing mards on camshaft/crankshaft which could be dots, marks or grooves, replacing the belt/chain, and reassembling engine. The repair manual will give step by step instructions as well as pictures. To post all that here would take more than 10,000 charecters of text, which fixya limits us to 10,000 charecters. Very long detailed list of procedures for sure!

How to change timing chain 1998 sts seville cadillac

I noticed your question was not answered yet, so I am trying to help. I watched another mechanic perform a teardown on one of these big Northstar engines in a DTS model.

In his case, he wanted to pull the heads. Now in the process he had to remove all of the timing chains. His engine was a 4 cam, meaning there are 4 Timing chains on the motor.

The access to the Timing chains was poor. I believe you would still have to drop the motor "Cradle" to be able to remove the crankshaft damper and the front Timing chain cover. There are sprockets on the Cams which require taking out plastic access plugs in the cylinder heads to get at the Timing chain tensioners.

Depending on whether the new chain has an "open" link or if it is a continuous loop will determine if you need to remove the other Timing chains that are in front of the position of your bad chain. If the bad chain is the outermost chain, then you just remove the first chain and replace it. But if it is the last chain, you need to get to it by removing the chains in front of it.

I can tell you that the Northstars require a periodic cylinder combustion chamber cleansing with a special additive(usually annually). This additive is available at the Dealer and once you know the exact chemical, you may try to get it at an autoparts supplier if it is not a proprietary product. There is an installation process.

This product requires the engine to rest with the additive installed at least 8 hours and preferably 24 hours. It will decarbon the heads. I say this to you because unless you know for sure that a Timing chain is bad, your valves may simply be carbon fouled. I understand it can be common in Northstar engines. They are built like a race engine, but require more service.

Using this chemical could easily save you $3000 or more in motor work, and if the problem was not the carbon, it should have been done as part of regular maintainance anyway. Then go ahead with the Timing chain replacement if the chemical does not help.

Now it does pay to check around for prices. "If" you have to have the "cradle" pulled, it will be very expensive. Basically the body and the engine/transmission are separated if that gives you some idea of how drastic and time consuming this repair can be.

There are always new tools coming to market to bypass some of the obstacles in repairs. Someone may know a new trick to saving labor.

I would like to know the outcome of your situation.

2008 Dodge Nitro - Heater blows but not hot air, A/C works

There is casting sand in it (the heater core) and its stopped up. I just fixed an 08 nitro for nothing. Remove the heater core hose closest to the motor at the firewall. Cut off a piece of garden hose about 4 foot long and slip it over the core pipe, so you can flush it out. Now remove the other hose but leave the hose attached to the core. You will be unhooking it downstream on another pipe by the exhaust. Now get an empty milk just to catch the antifreeze and sand. Use compressed air to blow the antifreeze out. I used a 10 gallon air tank with a blow nozzle(rubber tip). Get some hot water from the sink and fill it up through the garden hose and repeat the blowing out. Reverse hoses every other time you blow it out. You will see sand in your milk jug at the bottom. It only takes a teaspoon of sand to stop it up. When you stop getting sand your done but dont forget to top the heater core back up with antifreeze. Your done for free. Chrysler wanted $1200 to fix my daughters nitro and I did it for nothing. Works like new again. Jeep is the worst about casting sand left over from the block molding process and Nitro is just another Jeep. Also, you dont need to go crazy with the air. Just hold it in the hose with a fairly firm grip and gently give it a little air till you get the feel of it. Anyone can do this job and on the hose clamps I used a pair of short channel lock pliars and be gentle while you twist the hoses off. Take your time. I spent 1 1/2 hours doing this and its new again. Have a great day friend.

A retail tire store told me that tire chains will not fit most Chrysler products and will not sell me a set for my Dodge Nitro. Is this true?

not realy BUT unless you live on a mountain they are a waste of money.

You can access the oil filter easily from underneath next to the front, driver-side wheel at the front of the engine. There is clear access to the filter there.
