hey I have 2009 2.4 I had the vtc rattle like everyone else for a while I finally got around to changing it this is what happened after
- realized timing chain was stretched after reinstallation
-changed timing chain, tensioner, and guides
-test drove vehicle and it took forever to get going...
Looking for some help here.
I was driving my car and my dash lights, first the seat belt light, then all right side lights, then finally the battery light turned on. A little while later I lost power to my radio and then all gauges. Finally the lost power and then would start without a jump.
I've got a 2003 I4 with 117k on it. I've only had it for a few thousand miles so I don't know too much about the maintenance history.
The engine has an issue with surging that is getting progressively worse over the weeks. It normally lasts only a second or two but it is occurring...
