I installing now timing chain
after about 30 minutes of cranking on it and sometimes it'll start cranking and going dead and then other times it'll spit and sputter and hat and then once it seems to get a little warmer all the sudden it cranks up and runs perfect and it's running perfect the rest of the day

I started the engine and heard a unusual click noise and I quickly turned off the ignition key,but when the key off position the starter still running or cranking the motor, so I quickly disconnect the battery to kill the starter while the key is off. I appreciate for your advice to look for and repair this problem. Thanks
What diagram do I follow on tightening. In how many steps should it be done. Do you have a diagram on the procedure,
Can I ask a repair question? I have a `1997 Toyota Tacoma. I changed the water pump, thermostat, & the radiator is less then 2 years old. The heat stopped working, blows cool air. I flushed the system with cleaner it heated for 30 min & quit again. There is no smoke or water coming out of the exhaust. I see there are 2 fuses how do you know if they are good or bad. I have asked 3 local Toyota mechanics & they never heard of this issue.
new water pump, flushed the lines, the radiator is only a year old. Had great heat after lines were flushed .
