What are some of the symptoms of my cam gears being out of time?

Don't ask how...don't say "they just don't go out of time"...don't laugh at me...

...Thanks...

Why don't you just check them and stop being lazy???

Very helpful...thanks. :sleeping:

Here's the deal...I KNOW they are out of time, and I don't want to tear it all out to fix it. When I did my timing belt, the passenger side cam spun and I got it as close as I could considering. It's probably just 1 belt rib off, but I don't have the time or the patience to do this job again...

I was just curious if my symptoms were typical of cam gears being out of time. [Hint: my symptoms are in white in my 2nd post.]

ah another reason why Swift should be here.

He did my HG and timing belt , he was one tooth off on the passenger side(retarded) but couldn't tell until start up but did not worry since he knew it wouldn't cause trouble. He had to work so i had to drive it like that for a few hours and my symptoms were like yours. Just pull those plastic covers off and check the alignment marks???

Well its obvious that you suspected them being out of timing for a reason(maybe cause you fucked up the timing belt job?). It takes me less than 10 minutes to check the timing on a Legend, stop bitching and go grab your 10mm and a 19 mm and do the damn thing.
