Jumped timing and one person moved the secondary timing, now I don't know what has been done and would like to reset both primary and secondary timing from scratch camshaft and crankshaft. If that's possible I know regular timing is and is it best to get a whole new timing kit since it did jump that's indicating stretch on chain correct. Thanks for any help and info you can give me, and I'll send pics of any and all progress.

Hi,

I would be happy to help, but in 2013, the v6 wasn't offered. They offered three different versions of four-cylinder engines. See pic below

Let me know.

I'll have to check the year. The only info I could get was 3.6 L interference motor v6 primary and secondary timing. Now this is the pattern or belt pattern exactly as the one I'm fixing.

Hi,

The year must be off. I went to a 2012 and found the 3.6L.

I attached directions below for the removal of all three chains. You need to remove them in the order I attached them in. When you reinstall the chains, it is done in the reverse. The timing marks you have in your pic are correct.

Take a look and let me know if this helps.

Take care,

Joe

See pics below. Note: The information is for a 2012.
