After changing the crankshaft and cam sensors, Is it necessary to time engine before it
will start? Can I get the step by step on how to time the v6 2.5 with no start?

1 Answer

You can't set the timing. It's controlled by the ECU unless you mean cam timing, and that means removing the timing chain...no way has that been moved.
