Need reputable 2jz technician in NJ area! HEEELP!
ISO 2jz mechanic/technician who can time the engine. I went in hard on my 03 IS300 doing some repairs/tune up stuff last week and I'm in a little trouble- I have what seems to me to be a timing issue now. I am throwing the random multi misfire code, as well as misfire codes for every cylinder. It runs really rough, and there is a slight audible tapping from the intake cam side with the VVti cam gear. Forget what I *think* I know, here's what I can list about whats been done:
-Valve cover gaskets
-Front cam seals
-VVTi Cam seal rebuild
-new timing belt and tensioner
-water pump, water pump housing, and thermostat, with new t-stat to block o rings
-ac compressor, txv, and condenser coil
-New coil pack connectors on the wiring harness (soldered and heat shrinked) *made sure the wires were not crossed for each of the three connectors, seems to have plenty of spark
I had done a timing belt replacement on a previous is300 i owned and had no problems, this time around I had to remove the cam gears for the cam seals, and this time around I disassembled the VVti Cam gear. I believe my issue is with the cam gear. I marked it with a paint marker only to have it rub off on me during the o-ring seal replacement. I took a guess and put it back together. it has a notch on the outer part of the cam that lined up with a larger threadless hole on the actual gear side of it...Anyway, It still starts right up, I've only had it idling up to operating temperature twice- maybe a total of 10 mins.
To be honest, I am and was past my skillset when I attempted this, but i think my engine still may have a chance if the problem only exists within the cam gear. I made sure the cams were TDC and the crank pully was in the exact same spot as it was when I removed the belt. IDK what else to do and need help. I do not want to drive it anywhere in fear I could do damage to the engine, clog my cats, plugs, ect. any help please lmk. If fixable, my car needs some new hands on it. I am willing to pay. I miss my babbyyyyyyyy :'( ::tyrese::
