Cam chain tensioner rails broke off in pieces. Do I loosen the inside cam on the right bank to replace the top and bottom tensioner rails. ??
Car worked fine when i test drove about 20 mins in thé car power for the egine wasnt working the music and lights were still on but the car died and i had to get boosted 5 more times in the matter of ten mins
That shows fuel , oil usage
So about 3 months ago the EPC light came on while I was driving at 45mph, i saw the speed decreasing while I still had my foot on the pedal, no matter how hard I push the Pedal the car will not accelerate more than 30mph, I went straight home and turn off the car. A few days had gone by , I keep having the same issue more frequently this time, I could feel the car getting worst by the day
Until One day the check engine light turned on, I was at a red light and I felt the motor shaking really hard, I pulled over and turn of the car when I turned back on, the motor was still shaking so I just drove home.

I took it to at least 6-7 different mechanics, one guy told me I had to change the spark plugs and the ignition coils (we did) the problem persisted.

The next mechanic said the main computer was bad ( I believe the code was P065 - circuit b malfunction) He said I had to replace the computer) , I couldn't believe the computer of my car was bad, since my car is only 4 years old! So i took it to another mechanic .

This guy said the crankshaft or cram shaft was bad and he replace it, and he replaced the spark plugs once again ( he said the others one were the wrong ones) I went to pick up my car and the EPC & check engine light turned back on, same problem car won't accelerate, so I took the car back to him, he said I am sorry, I did everything I could!

ok so now the car is worst, it will suddenly stop accelerating and it won't accelerate more than 5 mph, I could get into an accident! this happen almost everyday, without any warning.

So I took it to another mechanic, and this guys is telling me the throttle body is bad, and needs to be replaced. at this point I don't know what to do , is relatively a new car! Has been to 4 mechanics, a lot of money spend and no one can fix the dam car.

My car is out of warranty, I haven't take the car to the dealer because they want $150 an hour to diagnose the car. That's insane!

El carro no prende solo se escucha que quiere arrancar pero no prende y dice la computadora que es el P0864
It was running fine about 8 months ago when I parked it. When I decided to start it up a couple of weeks ago it had no power so I got the battery replaced and now it cranks but won't turn over. it also has a news starter that I replace about a month before I PARKED IT.
When u put the car in drive it acts like it doesnt want to go once u get up to 20mph it works fine
This happens each time I try to start. The engine turns over normally and battery is good. This problem has been with the the car since I bought it about 5 years ago. It just seems to have to crank several times before it starts (hold the key in start position for approx 5 to 7 seconds). When you turn the car off after a journey and then start it straight away again, the same problem persists. After it starts the car runs fine with plenty of power and no other problems. Timing belt was replaced which had no effect on the problem
the radio will not turn on
