    Tearing down the whole front end and bottom end of the truck to change the timing chain. Hmmm! Kind of makes you wonder what those engineers were thinking.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thomas savage says:

    I think the guides being worn are part of it.

    What kind if fish has 2 knees? Tuknee fish

    Cool

    removing the timing cover air hammer chisel head net to dowel peg be gentle works well

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    16 plus mm does seem like alot vs the 14 to 15mm of spec especially could throw it off with the amount of slop it has by hand plus the chain slop they both could be the whole problem Eric O @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

    5+ year video, 504 comments, I am sure somebody has mentioned…..REO Speedwagon…you can tuna a piano but you cannot tuna fish. And the album cover had a tuna fish with a tuning fork coming out of its mouth. Your daily job creates worthwhile videos for those of us who prefer to do our own repairs. Many thanks

    Getting ready to do one tomorrow I'm starting to rethink my life choices and career.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rigid Wing says:

    The timming chain is much easer to change on the 350 v8, seldom needed changed too.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Casey Powell says:

    Sorry Eric o wouldn't buy one for $50 . Thanks GM again!!!!!!!

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LeewardStudios says:

    All the engineers care about is getting past 36 months or 36000 miles. After that there is no warranty and don’t care how long it takes to fix their screw up half measures and lack of foresight.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MacGyver 2 says:

    Timing chain cover, youve got more patience than I do. Good job

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rene Ramirez says:

    The debut of “Big Nasty”!? What!! Just started watching your channel and going back through the archives. Cool to see the beginning of SMA.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Vesmam says:

    That's an reo speedwagon album

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Stabile says:

    As being a mechanic/technician I believe an engineer caught a mechanic sleeping with his wife and then therefore started to design vehicles to the point of driving every mechanic insane

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    Lol the age old dilemma the best thing to do is replace all gearing and sliders and chain

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    I think that all engineers should have a minimum of 6 years practical mechanics on automobiles and trucks and diesel car and trucks as well before becoming engineers

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars zzzingrol says:

    I wonder if it would be easier to pull the motor, especially on a 4×4 model.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Bird says:

    you had it easy i had to do the mains, rods and rings in the 4wheel version with no lift and all hand tools and it turned out the number 3 on the crank was an egg needed a new crank should have just swapped the engine

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ronald Oswald says:

    That joke was the name of a 1978 REO Speedwagon album.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars R Guy says:

    They engineer them to be put together fast using the least amount of labor. The engineer that designed the engine probably doesn’t even speak English. Value engineered using minimum required materials.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Crawford says:

    Right in the @&$£#+$ oil, wouldn’t cha know it?
    First time I ever heard you curse! It’s fine , I would have cursed a blue streak long before that!

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LonglacMax says:

    Engineers are also accountants and designed it as intended so that you touch as much stuff as possible for even the most erroneous task in the hopes a breaking something or everything so that in the end, sell more chinesium parts.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron O'dowd says:

    I cannot tell you how much I appreciate this series of videos. My son and I just finished a 2009 Chevy Colorado 2.9 liter with the same issue. I know this is several years past by now but your efforts to make this video and lead the rest of us through this labyrinthine of engeering buffoonery lives on.
    We solved the issue following your vids.
    Thanks

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Martin Kucic says:

    No Eric!!!
    Fuck those engineers!!!

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Martin Kucic says:

    I am a member the short attention span generation.
    In other words, f that job.😜

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Martin Kucic says:

    What the heck was chevy thinking. They probably let some genius design that system.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Martin Kucic says:

    HOLY SHITSKY Eric!!!!
    I don’t know why you took this job in. No wonder nobody knows what the wave form looks like. It’s too costly on the mechanics. And that’s the only ones that would care about that.🥴

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Russell Dilworth says:

    Too many jobs like these would Friggen bankrupt a shop lol!!!!!!

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars chris murphy says:

    The one thing that terrifies me in all these videos, is how on earth does anyone know where all the bolts, washers, clips, etc go when you dismantle so much. Surely it can't all me memory. I would be having a million photos and a mountain of clearly marked envelopes

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Len Huddleston says:

    You're right, you should have pulled the engine.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donnie Robertson says:

    Second time watching 5/23/2020

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Darden says:

    Big nasty!

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars vic patton says:

    Loved the cam holding tool!!! Actually loved the whole series. regards vic

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ULTRA MAGA PIMPERNEL says:

    Hey, when I saw you pull the timing cover off, just hit me that engine is a VVT design. Did you think of changing the VVT module on the right camshaft? It varies the valve timing. Maybe the chain wasn't stretched that much. Just a thought. My 04 Rolla is VVT is why I thought of that.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Prevost says:

    Absolute garbage. No wonder Toyota dominates the mid-sized truck market.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matt Man Productions says:

    I can rebuild a old big block even a small block, give me one of these new cars and I would rather pull the motor, and put a new one in it's place than to sit and fiddle with the front housing like Eric did 🤬 heck with that!

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerry Williams says:

    Reo Speedwagon you can tune a piano but you can't tuna fish

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Stone says:

    This Colorado reminds me of an old FORD PICKUP TRUCK I ONCE HAD. They used epoxy instead of silicon gasket cement. EVERYTHING WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO JUST SEPARATE, CLEAN AND REPLACE PARTS. I blew a (PLASTIC) timing chain, had to tow the vehicle 10 miles before I could even work on the truck, not to mention ungluing everything important. A one day job turned into three, my only saving grace, my friend had a SNAP ON TOOL TRUCK IN HIS DRIVEWAY and was a 20 yr mechanic working for a dealership.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Miller says:

    Yeah, glad I watched this before buying a Colorado. No user serviceable parts inside.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joshua Marshall says:

    At what point do you say the labor to fix the vehicle exceeds it's value

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan Daly says:

    Hello this is a great video I was wonder where you got the Cam actuator sprocket because GM does not make it any more, thank you

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars amisanthropicman says:

    First appearance of big nasty!

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Little Shop In The Shed says:

    To add washer fluid; remove rear tire, brakes, spare tire, etc……
