  • Install data scanner and engine analyzer. Run tests on the fuel, ignition, and computer control systems. Retrieve fault codes from the processors memory. Codes exist in the system for (P0023) bank #2 exhaust camshaft actuator circuit/open. Perform all necessary pin point tests checking the wiring, grounds, relays, and related circuit components to isolate the problem to a shorted bank #2 exhaust camshaft actuator solenoid which will need to be replaced in order to repair the issue.
  • Remove any components necessary to gain access to the engines rocker / camshaft covers. Remove all attaching hardware and remove the rocker covers from the cylinder heads. Remove the attaching hardware for the existing camshaft actuators and remove them from the engine. Depress the force pins to prevent any interference with the camshaft actuator solenoids. Tighten all hardware to specification and inspect the timing components for any signs of wear that are visible. Remove the gasket material from the rocker cover assemblies and clean the channels to remove any remaining residual oil or debris. Clean the mating surfaces on the engines cylinder head(s) and check the surfaces for warpage or any imperfections that would prevent the new gaskets from making a proper seal. Install the new gaskets on to the rocker covers and place onto the cylinder head ensuring that the end seals are secured with sealant. Torque all hardware to manufacturers specification and install any previously removed components back to their original state. Top off the engine oil and or change the engine oil and filter as required. Run the engine to operating temperature and check the rocker covers for leaks.

  • Remove the rear drive shaft from the vehicle, and clean the external joint components to access the retaining hardware. Remove the retaining rings and press the U joint from the drive shaft, and or yokes bore. Hone the bores to remove corrosion and rust so that the surface is round ensuring no extra pressure is on the replacement U joints bearing caps. Verify correct phasing of the shaft, and press the new joint assembly into the shaft and or yoke installing new retaining clips. Reinstall the shaft onto the vehicle and lubricate the replacement U joint. Check and top off transmission and or transfer case fluid as required due to fluid loss during disassembly. Torque the drive shaft retainer bolts to specification and road test the vehicle to check for noise and vibration caused by the U joints.
  • 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.
  • Perform Full Brake Bleeding Procedure w/Data Scanner For ABS System.
