These engines have been reliable, but there are four pattern failures you might see at your shop.
When a guide and tensioner fail, it induces timing chain slap that causes the chain to jump on the sprockets.
Originally developed for the 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo, VarioCam changes the valve timing to increase power & reduce emissions.
The two most common failures for a VANOS system are related to the quality of the oil.
Andrew Markel and Cody Smith come together to open a Cloyes timing chain kit to determine what comes with each kit.
Here’s how the camshaft phaser and oil control solenoid components work together. This video is sponsored by NGK and NTK.
The key is to remember that the relationship between the camshaft and crankshaft – and oil – is critical.
VVT systems need proper oil maintenance. This video brought to you by the Group Training Academy.
Just as with the engine itself, oil is critical to the VVT system. This video is sponsored by The Group.
At cold start-up, a Honda engine rattles loudly for about two seconds. What could the possible cause be?
