WARNING! Everyone BEWARE when replacing the water pump!
Even when using the required special tool the timing chain still whines!
The balance shaft timing chain must be reset or it will make noise.
We just found this out through experience and want to pass this along to others so they will not walk blindly in to this job.
Note: Mechanics & shops make sure you add extra time to remove timing cover and reset the balance shaft chain tensioner. As this is not included in any labor guides.
