Truck died while driving and wouldn't restart. I had fire to every plug and had Just replaced the distributor module so, I was baffled. I had the truck towed to a shop where they told me it was the timing chain and gave me an estimated cost of $600.00 to $650.00. I called some other shops and was told that this is a fair estimate. The issue is: that I only paid $800.00 for the truck and I don't have an additional $650.00 to through at it. This is my only vehicle so I'm kind of stuck. I researched the parts, and I mean everything; the chain, the sprockets, all of the gaskets, a new cover with crank sensor, and water pump total was 238.00. If I opt out of the new cover I can get the parts for about $96.00. Bye the way, the truck ran great before this issue. Now, having told you all of that and not having a Hayes manual handy, do you have to pull the motor to change this out? I have always done my own work, just not internal motor work. If I don't have to pull the motor, I'm positive I can do this. Advice.
have the same problem?
