The studded ones seem to be to hold on the crankshaft sensor cover thing. At least, That'* where mine are.

You sure the chain is lined up right? Got scantool?

If I had got the timing off. Lets assume Im just one click off(dont think I am though). Would the car even run at 1 click off?

The service engine light was on for cam sensor circuit before I did this. Now no service engine light. So I dont think a scan tool would help if light isnt on would it?

One tooth is.... Let me look it up in one of my old threads.


A scantool will show the advance the engine is being given. It doesn't need codes to work.

This is seriously so discouraging and really brought down my spirits. I changed all of this with no power tools. I probably have 25 hours wrapped up in this. Sorry to vent but it just sucks to put so much work into something and then it not go right.

With the clanking and power loss, I was thinking that perhaps the harmonic balancer went when it was removed. I'd think that it would make noise hot or cold, however. It might be worth checking just the same.

Ever find out about that one tooth off deal? I saw in one of your posts you used a tool to tell you were off without ripping it apart? How do I go about this and where do you hook up the tool at?

I looked at the balancer before I put it back on. All the grooves were fine and it isnt rubbing the crank sensor or anything. I dont think its that because wouldnt a crank sensor code come up?

It doesnt start leaking until its hot. Maybe when it heats up it is leaking down into the grooves of the crank sensor. Wouldnt this trip the service engine light though?
