Re: i hate to say i told you so...

well well well.

rebuilt it last week.

took the covers off and the belt was slack but not broken. the top idler had disintegrated.

obviously run dry of lube, as the bits that where left where burned.

now it runs better than it has for a year or so, which makes me wonder if the timing has been out for a while. it used to hunt at idle, and not want to start. the fuel trim was really high on the diagnostics..

any ideas?

(and mod, it might be a idea to move this thread to the tech forums...)
