Thanks for the head's up on the timing chain. That's why I love this forum. There's always someone who knows something that I don't, and I'm grateful to learn.
So now that we've established that I know very little about the 4.0 V6, what do I need to be aware of coming up on 100k, or do I even need to worry about it?
