Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Chrysler 300 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles

Y'all responded to my question from yesterday. But it
didn't answer my question. Should the cam pulleys move or have play on the camshafts? My pulleys will
move about 1 to 1.5 teeth without the cams moving.
When I aligned all timing marks and got belt tight the engine started and ran fine until 3800 to 4000 rpm and then started cutting out. I have trouble understanding how an engine can be perfectly timed if the cam pulleys have any significant play.

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No
