Re: removing grill 01 edge 4x4

Re: Low idle when in park

A/C compressors ALWAYS cycle ,even when perfectly charged. Clean or replace your idle air control valve (iac valve) .The iac compensates for the AC and other conditions,That's why it is there.

Re: Door ajar/ Dome light wont work

If you are spraying into the key hole you are spraying in the wrong place. spray into the door latching mechanism that holds the door shut when you close it.

Re: timing chain rattle question

After I asked why on 4x4 only, I kept thinking about it and I now thing It is because in 4low there is a high probability of much higher RPMs than 2wd.Just my opinion.Dennis
