    Good Afternoon All!! Just picked up a 2006 base model with 150k on the dial and am shooting for the fences. I am from Southern Illinois and looking for the tools recommended when replacing the timing chains and guides, is there a tool rental? Just purchase new radiator and hoses, to avoid the...

    I just bought a 2006 with 125,000 miles in great condition, but I keep reading stuff on SMOD and it has me nervous. It had the matching vin number on the transmission to ones that have had issues before. I checked for all of the signs of it and I’m in the clear. Should I let this continue to...
