ok well nvm on that, i finally got the bolt in! but thanks for all the quick replies and good advice... anyways; now i have it put back together and running. BUT now it has a slight miss (shakes a little at idle) AND a little knock in the engine?!!?
i don't understand. i change the timing chain and gasket, water pump, temperature sensor, cooling system connector, oil, plugs and wires, put it back together and it ran perfect, just the small leak coming from the u shape on the oil pan where the timing chain cover seals to it. so i tore it all back apart, sealed the spot where oil was leaking from, and now it doesn't leak but these other problems arose.. really mad this happened and wondering if anyone has any advice. any help or ideas would be MUCH APPRECIATED! THANK YOU!
