If y'all don't get it done then just hit me up on here, again good luck with everything. Oh and y'all are going to be setting a record. The record for the earliest start, we usually do things at night when we all have time lol.

you got the t55 and e18 sockets? you won't find them in parts stores.

I have the pin and bar around if y'all need it, pm me and give me a call if you get stuck. (will be at work til 5)

oh ya and from personal experience:

-loosen the water pump pulley before pulling the belt off
-SET THE BAR BEFORE TAKING THE BELT OFF! (was off 180, go me)
-take your time and double check everything
-spin the motor about 10 times when you think you have it back together (with the vct gear cover in! *again oops go me* and make sure its right or you're gonna be fighting the CEL

sides that not hard just follow instructions and you'll be good.

Diego, it was great to meet you and hang out today. I had fun with all the hang-ups (nothing to do with the car). To start thank you for being on time. I am a very punctual person and this means a lot to me!

For everyone else the hangup are:

1- I parked my wife's 2010 Edge in the street and she asked meto move it to the other side so the kids across the street will not back into it... Well, the little old lady on the other side backed into it instead.

2- My jack that I just got back from a family member had a blown seal so that was set us back.

3- I barrowed the "hard to find" special tools and the T55 that I barrowed was actually a T60. We had to go buy a T55 at Sears ($6.86+ tax). Did not break the bank.

4- 4 year old son that was a tag-a-long and wanted to help. Not much help except to slow us down. It is great though to see him so interested in cars.

Welcome to the States and you are welcome at my house anytime!
