What cam lock tool did you guys use because I can't see it in the tool description list on any of the related videos

Daniel Franklin says:

Can you help me fix my car? It's the same one :-(. How much will you charge?

Mark Wolf says:

People who tighten oil filters with tools deserve a small place in hell expecially hard to reach ones from under the vehicle.

Antoine Finch says:

when i removed my harmonic balancer bolt it had this thick rubber piece that was broke and in side the rest of the broken rubber is inside it? what is this rubber

Chris Wilson says:

Great videos, squaring up what the job would be like on my 98 lincoln towncar. Quick question; did you replace the sprockets with the timing chain or did you use the original sprockets? Most online kits only come with the tensioners, mounts and chain. Thanks

great video--I am getting ready to do this on my 93 crown vic. I was a bit worried shops want 9-1500$ to do this (labor only) and So I thought it was a huge job—but they are obviously pricing it from a flat rate guide and pricing each step vs the whole job.

Can you change the oil pump while you are in there? I saw a video for a 5.4L truck and (same engine) they said the only trick is undoing the pickup tube where it feeds in–but its not an issue. I have all the tools—the crank holder and cam holders so I should be able to remove all the chains etc and have the oil pump exposed. Do you think it can be done?

I wish I could find someone here In Phoenix who knew this job like you do that I could take the car too, I am just not feeling the desire to do it. Maybe f4cphantom2 (comment below) can do it for me–UTI is here in phoenix. Thanks!!

Bobby Boyd says:

Really appreciate the video, guys.

Hey Mike this video is great. I have 2007 Crown Vic with a 4.6 and it's due for a timing chain. I'm a current student at Universal Technical Institute taking auto & diesel. I graduate in September I really enjoy your videos.

Hey, not related to this video but about a previous video on replacement of a blower motor resistor in a chevy cobalt I was wondering if you could share on how to replace the blower motor connector on the front side of the motor. Thanks!
