3.0?, 3.3?, or 3.8?


Does it sound normal when cranking? Or does it remind you of a sewing machine?

Kind of quiet but also backfires through the intake

Timing has jumped when was the last time the timing belt was changed?

Or a bad distributor cap

Not that long ago I don't think we thought it was the fuel pump but changed it and still nothing

If it were the distributer cap how would I know what should I look for?

Carbon tracking corrosion,cracks damage to rotor

Ok thank you very much

There is an 8mm screw that secures rotor it it has fallen out it will allow random misfire.

Ok thank you
