      Its a timing chain no need to replace .the only thing is that the chain guides do wear out some time.then the chain should b replace.The chain is between the tranny and the motor . u can get a lot of miles on the chain good luck.

    My car battery keeps dying.
    Not only that, The fans that are located behind the grill of the car are also turning on by themselves without the car even being on. Which may contribute to the draining of the battery. Please help?

      The fans should only stay on for a bit if need be to cool the motor after it's been running . There is a relay that controls this and it sounds like it's going bad . Take your car to a local parts store (auto zone , napa ) and they can first check your charging system to make sure it's ok . They do it ffor free . They can also show you where the relay is and get you one . My Jeep did that and would kill the battery in no time . Relay was hard to get to . under battery box behind the bumper .

    How to change fuel filter?
    Car will not crank, has fire and fuel is flowing but not sure if pressure is right. It fires but does not turn over. Has new plugs and cables. Perhaps coil is the issue?

      If the spark plugs have spark - strong blueish color - across the plug gap - then the problem is not likely the ignition coil. Test the ignition coil output, then make sure the fuel pressure is correct to the engine. Check the flow into and out of the fuel filter.
      The fuel filter is located underneath the passenger side rear. It's not that hard - just a few normal bolts; either 13mm or 14mm. Detach the two lines. Make sure you take the gas cap off so there is not so much pressure on the lines. You may also want to use a vise pliers to pinch off the flexible gas lines so they wont leak everywhere.

    How to find coolant leak near water pump?
    Leaking coolant top rear of motor

      If you can't see the leak, you'll have to take it to a repair shop. The repair shop will pressurize the cooling system (with the engine cold) to locate the leak. It could be a hose connection or a water pump gasket or seal.
      Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.RockAuto.com or www.autopartswarehouse.com for the replacement parts.
