Yep, crank and cam out of sync. I just took a short trip to look at some rims for it. Seventy miles each way. No problem the way there but, on the way back I would loose power a split second and then regain it. As if I reached the end of a weak rope and it broke. This was at 60-70 mph. The tac averaged 2000 rpm. Never seemed to act up when it was racing to change up a gear. Only did it when cruizing. Incline or flat.
At one time before the trip I left the auto parts store, came home and the light was out. Thought great! But, then back on the next start up. What happens when the timing chain is off a tooth? Is performance extremely obvious? Or is idle abnormal?
I also want to add, the cam sensor plugs directly into the distributor. That is the reason I wrote about the dist.
Any comments appreciated!
