I have no idea why it was dirty when everything else was very clean. I assume you are not doing it yourself if you don't recognize the code. Generally there is a good reason why a repair costs what it does. While the design cools the oil in the normal operating temperature range, it also allows the oil to warm more quickly. Please read the on the subject for details.
Make sure you have changed your timing belt before resetting this. I'm a mechanic and I don't change my own oil either, it's cheaper to have them do it, just don't fall for the extra stuff they tell you that you need. Because the exhaust ports and exhaust manifold heat more rapidly than any part of an engine, moving a smaller catalytic converter closer to the manifold allows the catalyst to heat more quickly. Along with helping reduce the overall weight of the engine, they lower the inertia of the valvetrain, allowing the engine to rev higher and more quickly. Severe engine damage may occur if the timing belt is not changed on a regular schedule.
The result is less reciprocating mass inside the engine, increasing efficiency and enhancing the tactile feeling of performance as the engine builds revs. Please report bad advice to the mod team. Those who continually cause issue will be removed 2a One Incident per Thread. It will ask are you sure you want to reset? This is a zero tolerance policy. Another advantage of the rotary sleeve design is that a high tightness can be reached in the closed position. It is possible that the timing belt was replaced incorrectly and now the timing is off therefore having the same problem as before.

Body work questions regarding paint, dents, dings or accident related damages or other bodywork related issues should be posted in If you want an estimate you should take the car to a qualified body shop as they would know best what it will cost in your area and how to fix the damages. If we feel a piece of advice is particularly reckless, dangerous, or extremely unhelpful it maybe removed If a post or comment is provided that is not a response to a question, the post may be removed. We are also happy to advise on how you can save money at the shop. I have done some due to age but most get done at 100k so I try and bundle everything to save them the extra cost from piecemealing it. The benefit is less engine wear, improved durability, and quieter operation.
Click menu on the turn signal lever to the left of the steering column until the Vehicle information menu appears. This will allow people to filter out posts that have already been resolved so they can move on to other posts that still need assistance. The cooler is compact and lightweight less than three pounds , and provides a significant decrease in oil temperature without a decrease in average oil pressure. The pump is packaged in an assembly module with the water pump, timing belt cover and fastening points for accessories. This allows tighter pin to pin-bore tolerances and reduces noise generated as the piston moves through the cylinder. Select one of the options below to filter by 'Solved' or 'Unsolved' posts.
Only give advice on something you believe to be true. This code indicates that there is a correlation between the camshaft position sensor and the crankshaft position sensor. But I cleaned it a week ago and the light has not come on again. If the crankshaft position sensor has not been replaced it is very possible that this could be the cause of the issue. Additional oil on the cylinder walls and wristpin also dampens noise emanating from the pistons. We are more than happy to help you figure out why a shop wants to charge you for a repair, and we will tell you if it is unusually high. Rotate the lever to select yes and hit the select button again to confirm.
. We're not super strict here, but for most of our posts we follow a question-response format. The other possibility is that the crankshaft position sensor is faulty. . If that isn't available, provide all you know and explain why.
If you are making a Second Opinion post, then please do not name the shops specifically. No intentionally bad, harmful, or deceptive advice. The close-coupled catalyst substantially lowers emissions during cold starts, or the brief period when an engine operates at its highest emissions level. Press and hold the set button on the end of the lever. Rotate the lever to select yes and hit the select button again to confirm. The steel connecting rods incorporate a larger, forged I-beam cross section for added strength without increasing weight.
This unique module reduces assembly time and improves build consistency. If it's got wheels, treads, floats, flies, or has an engine you're good to go. Contributing posters are people who regularly post worthwhile advice. The cross-section of the runners is constant over the entire length. Remember the golden rule: If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all. Make sure you have changed your timing belt before resetting this.
