Go out and buy a Hains or Chilton's repair manual. The instructions are pretty clear and also you will have only spent $20. to see if you want to do this repair. If you decide to do it then I would recommend replacing the water-pump and thermostat while your in there.

The best source that I have found on the internet is Alldata.com it is a pay site cost about $20 but you get to use the info for a year and you can print it out for future use once you join it with one vehicle any additional vehicles will only cost $15. It has been a staple it my garage for at least 5 years now, Ihope this helps you, good luck !! PS the instructions are step by step and very easy to follow

Timing went out .how to fix it


if u think it jumped timing u will have to replace the timing chain. to do this locate timing chain cover and remove it. then find #1 cylinder and remove spark plug. turn engine till the piston is all the way to top of cylinder. u can tell this by placing a screwdriver in hole and turn engine by moving engine a little at a time till u feel piston come to top. unplug spark plugs so engine does not start. remove the timing chain and gears put chain on making sure that timing marks on gears line up perfect. if u are off just one tooth it will not run right. put back together. if u don't have one go to auto parts store and get repair book for your explorer. it gives u step by step inst. on the project

2002 cavalier 2.2 cuts out at 4000 rpm


The 2.2 or the 2.4 neither one has RPM limiter. On these vehicle when the timing chain goes,you end up taking out a valve. If your timing chain is out of timing it will do exactly what you describe, now the pecking noise if that is a valve it will do exactly also

Getting code p1361 on my 99 civic. what is the problem and how do you fix it?


Code P1361 = Intermittent Interruption In TDC 1 Sensor Circuit

Turns out Top Dead Center (TDC) sensor was bad. Yours is too.

This sensor in located behind the timing chain cover on my 2001 civic. You have to take the cover off to get to it. Honda dealer wanted $360 in labor to change the sensor. Because it was in the same the location Honda would have changed my timing chain for no extra labor charge. So I went to the Honda dealer and got the sensor ($56) and went to the auto parts store and got a timing chain, water pump, and new belts. Local mechanic changed all these parts for $160 in labor (others wanted $230). $130 for the sensor and timing chain and $30 more for the pump. I probably could have hacked that timing chain cover off myself but that is what thought would happen. A hack job. And it was time for a new chain anyway. 92 plus degrees outside and the civic is running fine.

Good luck (remember rated this post).

That's a load of **** they are feeding you.The timing chain tentioner has a fault and not tentioning the chian.I think you have done a good thing keeping it on synthetic oil.That causes less wear on moving parts than other oils.
