I'm not a mechanic so the mechanic i have says that the oil pressure is not right could this be true? he turned a nut loose just under the injector rail and said it must stand for 48 hours and then be tightened again.


I'm telling you that you are 1 tooth out on the lower sprocket, check the timing belt again....
