  • A camshaft belt will need to be installed to time the engine and properly diagnose the severity of damage to the engine and its supporting components. The vehicle and engine components passed all pre assembly testing. None of the vehicles systems have been serviced and all components removed were original. See below for repair procedures required to get the engine running as well as service items required to get the vehicle back into safe, reliable condition.
  • Clean the debris from the engines lower intake, and remove all ignition coil assemblies and spark plugs. Clean the exterior of the coil assembly, and plug bores to keep debris from entering the engine or its components. Remove all ignition wires and spark plugs. Run thread chaser through the cylinder head to remove debris and clean the spark plug hole threads.

Utilizing a special detergent (which will not damage your vehicles sophisticated fuel system components) the equipment removes the dirt, varnish, and carbon deposits that normally build up on the intake valves, fuel injectors, and combustion surfaces. The air intake plenum, air charge, air bypass valve, and throttle body are also thoroughly cleaned during this process. In addition, oxygen sensors, and catalytic converters are cleaned reducing harmful exhaust emissions. All fuel system components are thoroughly tested as part of this service; Fuel pressure (static, and dynamic) regulator operation, leak down (at both injector assemblies and pump shuttle valve) and volume tests to verify that your fuel system is operating properly. Base idle adjustment is included where applicable. Install data scanner and run engine to operating temperature to verify that all computer controls are operating within parameters. Road test vehicle and verify static ignition timing and applicable fluid levels.

  • Remove front brackets, adjusters, and pulleys necessary to access the accessory belt components. Remove the engines serpentine and or V style drive belts, and clean and lubricate any idlers, pivots, or tensioner assemblies for later reassembly. Clean the pulley grooves to remove built up rubber and debris that will cause premature wear / noise issues with the belt(s). Check all accessories, idlers, and tensioners for bearing deflection while apart for the replacement of the power steering pump. The primary tensioner was replaced due to improper tension. Clean the exterior of the power steering pump housing at the lines attachment points to prevent foreign material from entering the system. Disconnect the pressure and return lines at the pump. Clean the threads on the lines and flush the system to remove any contaminants that may have been dispersed through the system from the faulty pump, age, and or normal wear. Remove the pump and transfer the reservoir from the old pump to the new pump housing where applicable. Install the new pump onto its mount and torque to specification. Reattach the pressure and return lines to the new pump using new sealing washers or gaskets as required. Reinstall the accessory drive and or serpentine belt(s) and reassemble the removed components. Fill the power steering system with the specified amount and type of new steering fluid and purge the air from the system. Install new serpentine drive belts, and run the engine to check for proper operation of the idler and tensioner pulleys. Verify belt deflection and alignment of the engines accessories, and lock all manually adjusted tensioners as required. Road test the vehicle to verify correct operation of the power steering system and recheck the system for the correct fluid level as well as to ensure there are no leaks from the power steering pump.
  • The vehicles Steering pump is wet at its front seal, and has a slight reservoir leak at the pump body. Due to age and deterioration, the most cost effective approach is to replace the pump with a new unit. Issues with the main tensioner and drive belts were uncovered during diagnostics. See below for replacement of the required components.

  • Remove the four tires from the vehicle, and clean the wheel studs, hub flanges, and the rims centric. Check the vehicles braking system components for wear, remaining brake material, and signs of pending issues. Reinstall the tires onto the vehicle in their best suited locations based on overall wear, torquing all lugs to factory specification. Inflate all tires to the manufacturers suggested pressure, and visually assess the tread for abnormal wear which may indicate a need for a wheel alignment. Reset the vehicles tire pressure monitor sensor locations where required, using the factory approved TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring) system, scan tool. Road test the vehicle and confirm there is no abnormal handling characteristics following the rotation. Note: Some vehicles may have a slight drift following a tire rotation. This is due to a pattern that developes in some tires due to excessive time in one location. This condition should improve as the tread conforms to the new location / alignment angle. If drifting would not improve, sometimes an alignment or a cross rotation is required.
