@webby that kind of experience is my fear, at least if I'm at a bmw/mercedes/acura/lexus/audi type dealer theyre automatically giving loaners for work anyway and at those price points the service seems to be better than when dealing with brands that arent in that bracket

I knew I had seen an article talking about the stinger being cut from the production line due to low sales, but I didn’t realize they were quite this low. It showed Canada sales at around 800-1000 units/year. If parts were needed it may be hard to get?

Eh, that is a current supply/manufacturing issue that should resolve itself.

You wanna talk about buying OEM parts for a car that only produced 26,000 units in the US

What would you lean towards at the given price point?

The parts issue I was having was pre-covid. Even the Kia Soul has been a huge pain to get parts for from the dealers. Their supply chains are awful

front Timing cover Timing chains, sprockets, guides tensioners, rear timing cover lower intake off today.

I'm hoping to have the heads off today but I suspect I'll have some issues with the exhaust manifolds. Hoping to just disconnect then from the cats and keep them on the heads for removal. 20211023_111408.jpg

Making good progress!
It says to remove the lower and upper oil pans to do the rear timing cover but I didn't do that. Doesn't say it for the front one and I don't see the difference. Use this technique for the 3.6 and 3.2 Pentastar engines when I do the timing chains. In fact Chrysler changed the procedure because I suspect everyone was doing it that way with no leaks and making a ton of time on warranty jobs.

All done.
Sending the heads out tomorrow. Still have to buy a gasket kit. Re using the timing chains because they look fine and will save like $300. Also need new ignition coils because some of the boots broke apart.
