  2. Got the Timing Belt Done Today

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Glad it's over with and it wasn't due to failure by any part. I just got tired of worrying about it because I bought the reg used with 68,000 miles on it and it's a 2006 V8. I've owned it for two years and it's almost hitting 10 years. The previous owner bought it at 39k miles and took really...

Actually, I was kind of stressing out because of the age of the belt. I know there is some debate on this site as to whether...

    General Maintenance & Repair
    My 2006 V10 in at the dealership on extended 3rd party warranty to replace the water pump and fuel pump, vacuum lines and a few other things. While the engine is out, I have the opportunity to replace a few other things proactively on my own dime. What do you suggest? I recall hearing...
  7. Changing the timing belt

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Went to the dealer for completely unrelated issue. They called and said tensioner pulley was going bad, too much play in the timing belt. They said the belt should be able to twist only 45 degrees (on drivers side, cover removed) and that mine is much more. It does twist to almost 90 degrees. It...
