    Landmark EPA Ruling/SCOTUS

    The EPA has been drunk on power for years and years now, they need to be put back in their place or better yet replaced with something else that is more transparent and mainstream.

    2G idle high? grounded then went to adjust biss fuse blew. more issues?

    They are right next to each other on those years in the wiring harness, one is obvious the other you have to dig for, they are two different colors, one is a brown terminal the other I think is black but dont quote me on it because its been a while since I have had to use them.

    2G Timing belt flop

    There is no engine oil in the auto tensioner/dampener in the 4g63, it has permanently sealed oil inside of it, it does not get bled or replaced by anything, if it leaks it gets removed and tossed, oil fired tensioners are usually used on cars with timing CHAINS on them such as the Chevrolet...

    2G Timing belt flop

    I wouldn't be overly concerned about it, all belts have a certain amount of deflection under use, you dont normally see the timing belt on a car when its running or you would have seen this before. As far as setting the tension on the timing belt, its not actually that critical, the auto...

    2G idle high? grounded then went to adjust biss fuse blew. more issues?

    Are you sure that you didn't ground the fuel pump test terminal instead of the timing terminal?

    2G idle high? grounded then went to adjust biss fuse blew. more issues?

    If the ecu is stock then that is normal, if its not then it depends on where in the map that timing is at as to whether its a problem or not.

    2G Front o2 sensor reads 4.41v

    Is there any chance that you have a wideband sensor in your front o2 position?

    2G Can I drive with my hood “popped” open for better cooling

    Replace your radiator cap with an oem replacement if you haven't already done that, by now if its stock its junk, and aftermarket ones are not of good quality generally.

    1G 1g tob noise & rpm drop - crankwalk

    Jenkins motor parts. use 20W50 also and always have, VR-1 at that, so I'm going to say that oil wasn't the problem, I am more prone to think that there was damage done when your balance shaft...

    1G 1g tob noise & rpm drop - crankwalk

    So you are saying that you crankwalked a six bolt 4g63? I am interested in what oil you were using and what bearing clearances you were running? what was your oil pressure at idle vs at speed? there is no point in repairing it until you find out what caused it to begin with. I'm not sure how...

    Who still builds these engines?

    I would think that Buschur's still builds an engine also.

    Cylinder head combustion chamber flaws

    That should clean up just fine with a milling machine, it wouldn't be worth the expense of welding it up and then milling it.
