Rocker Arm/Lifter Play

Should there be any side to side motion on the rocker arms/lifters? I notice most of them are snug and have a small amount of side to side motion, but one of the exhaust rockers has a noticeable amount of side to side play in it, enough to cause a click sound as it hits the tab that bolts the assemb...

Removing Transmission Gears, with Transmission in Car

I heard it was possible, by removing the cover on the back of the transmission, but how much is involved other than removing those bolts that hold on the cover? Do I have to remove the shift levers on top of the transmission as well? I'm talking about the Synchronizer Gears

60mm IAC Adapter for 2000 neons

I just bought a MPX 60mm TB, and I relized that it does not come with the IAC adapter. Where can I get one? The site does not appear to sell them! If they do I cant find the link.

Anyways, I do have a newer style IAC, is there anyway to make one work on the older style pigtail?

Thanks

I got new plugs and wires, the original coil was the coil that came with the car and had 154xxx miles on it. This one was from an 04 sxt I found in a junk yard, I dont know how many miles were on it but I honestly thought that it would cure the driving issues. I'll try everything you guys said, I no...

Possible Coil Problem

Okay, well this is occurring way to frequently now so I'm going to post something about it. Basically, I start my car up, and it idles for a sec then the rpms drop to about 500 and the car sounds like it's running on like 1 cylinder, I get a very strong smell of gas as it's loping like a motorcycle....

No I havent been turning the crank counter clockwise. I only did that when I set it 1/2 notch before TDC, and then set the belt in place. But when I turn the crank back to TDC, it cause the cam gear to rotate with it.

Like the original tensionor would spin 50 times before stopping, this one does it like 10-11 times. I'm sorry I ask so many questions Bill, I'm just trying...

Well I've also noticed when I start up sometimes, there's a clacking noise coming from the timing belt area, like almost like the rocker arms or something but it usually goes away. I've done research on the noise and some say it's the tensioner but I've got all the bolts torqued down to spec. If onl...

That's the part I don't understand, when I turn the crank back to TDC to remove the slack, it just pulls the cam back half a notch. It's like you cannot install the belt without having half a notch from TDC.

Okay, at work (Bojangles), we boil out the frying vats with water and degreaser for about an hour. This removes all carbon and what not, I was going to drop my cylinder head in there to do the same thing, but, the vat heats the water to a minimum of like 225 degrees and it goes up to 400.
