The lowes by my house sells woodruff keys. Just an option if you are tired of waiting.

Well they charged my card last Friday I bet you 100% when they anwser the email today it will magically appear to be ready for pick up..

My order was the woodruff key and a new crank pulley bolt.

Got the sprocket off.. hmm it seems the wear on the key caused it to lift up out of the keyway.. from what it seems like it's fine.. Here are some quick shots, just waiting on the dealer to email me about the sprocket to pick up today.

Ended up using my pickle fork to get the sprocket off I can take this other stuff back.






I think driver side head timing is off by one?

Well I got everything on.. but the ECU went crazy.. but this is not the first time, I'am very close to buying a spare on ebay..

Some of the weirdness that will happen..

Reset the ECU

misfire 3 & 4 almost back to back..

Reset again.

misfire 3&4 wont show up again almost at all.. I think the longest time was 8 months..

Now today granted I let the battery sit for a long time but I had to use my jump pack but I had the cable off the whole time I was working on the car.. Anyways I must of been getting some serious detonation I thought it was the valve hitting the piston but I was 110% sure I finally got the marks lined up, because I know before the passenger head was one tooth off.

Anyways I had the sound on idle, then that went away then it would only sound when giving it throttle. Then it stopped period.. Also the first start I did in like 3 weeks it ran super rich but then again I resetted the ECU as well.

I forgot to take a picture of the woodruff key slot but it's very good I caught it in time, it could of been a lot worst then what happened.

And the other thing was it also caused my knock sensor light to come on which I knew was not a real code because I replaced that sensor a year ago, and before the crank wobble I never had a knock sensor code and I did not drive the car the while 3 weeks, I cleared the codes, the knock sensor one came right back.. but after more driving I cleared the codes again and this time it never came back....

The only code I should be getting now is for the 2nd o2 sensor because I bent the tip when trying to unscrew it out.


Hmm perhaps piston slap? Maybe I never heard it before because the timing was off by 1 tooth and 2 teeth on the drivers side, so the combustion chamber pressures are higher now?
