Default Re: 1997 Sw2 Dohc

My car had timing chain rattle when I bought it, so timing chain was the first thing I did on mine as well.

That was 5 years, 68k ago. The key to longevity, if nothing was already damaged, is to check your oil frequently and keep it full. I put in about 6~9 oz a week.... I overfill slightly each Saturday - to about the "U" in the word FULL - and by next Saturday, it's down a few oz below the very top line.

I'm not worthy to grovel in the shadow of Signmaster's wisdom

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
