  1. Best spark plugs

    B13 91-94 chassis
    Champion and Bosch plugs are cheaply made junk, IMO. Every single car I've ever seen towed to our shop that won't start, or run, nearly 100% has had one or the other brand installed. I won't waste my time with them ...file 13 (File 13 is a euphemism for the trash can). I will use exclusively...
  2. Timing Chain replacement 2.4 KA24E

    HB Truck
    That sounds like a VERY good idea! I have to leave my truck sitting for sometimes up to two weeks at a time without being started, especially during the Winter. As a result, even with new stock parts, it still rattles the chain for a couple of seconds after starting. I'm sure your new trick mod...
  3. starter or ignicion switch bad?

    HB Truck
    I'd start with cleaning and reinstalling both battery cable connections at the battery posts. -Roger
  4. Timing Chain replacement 2.4 KA24E

    HB Truck
    Hi Dave, yes, I actually used the high temperature Permatex silicon sealer, ...the red stuff, but I have been made aware that they make an even better sealer, or gasket maker for applications where they are in constant contact with oil, called Permatex Ultra Black. Mine has not leaked at all...
  5. Electric cooling fan and controller, done!

    HB Truck
    Update: My electric cooling fan is still working just fine, but for the third time I'm having to replace the electronic thermostatic controller. I went with a different type altogether this time, but had to add yet one more relay to turn the fan on with the AC. It's gotten a little complicated...
  6. Sold My Hardbody. Thanks Everyone.

    Hate to see you go, Grug. The forum has been a better place with guys like you around. Drop in any time! -Roger
  7. Timing Chain replacement 2.4 KA24E

    HB Truck
    Thanks, Shut-Trip! This is a bit off topic but I'll try to help. The best way I've found is to upload your own pics to a photo host, such as Flickr, Webshots, Photobucket, Smug-mug, Dropbox, Google+. etc. There are lots more, I'm sure. Then, once hosted, all you have to do is copy the URL for...
  8. Timing Chain replacement 2.4 KA24E

    HB Truck
    In hindsight I had to be a little more careful due to making the decision not to remove the oil pan. It may have been more "by the book" to go ahead and remove it to do the job, but I understand that it's a real pain to do on the 4wd models. I just took my time, and with care, and lots of rags...
  9. Timing Chain replacement 2.4 KA24E

    HB Truck
    Hey Prim, I could only speculate that the gears were oil starved due to a residual carbon blockage in the oil passage to the lower timing chain oiler (small protruding stud just above the lower timing chain crankshaft gear). It's such a tiny port that almost anything could block it causing a...
  10. Exterior Door Handle Replacement

    HB Truck
    I've been finding some good prices on new parts at... AM Autoparts - After Market Auto Parts - Headlights, Mirrors, and More Free shipping and handling to everyone within the continental US. Not sure about rates and prices into Canada. -R
  11. Timing Chain replacement 2.4 KA24E

    HB Truck
    The bright links lining up with the cam gear and again at the crank gear are all you need to be really concerned with, at least until you drop the distributor into the front cover. The dowel test is off just a little. If the crank pulley keys on to the crank at 10 degrees, then the crankshaft is...
  12. Wet Floor, Passenger Side

    HB Truck
    Guys, I had this very same concern with my 94 a few years ago. I probably did a thread on what I found back then and how I fixed it, but mine was so evident that it didn't take long to narrow down. I got the feeling this could become quite common as our trucks age. The bottom line was that I...
  13. Timing Chain replacement 2.4 KA24E

    HB Truck
    This sounds completely normal. The colored chain links will not line back up with the marks on the cam and crank gears for many, many rotations. Because of that you don't check the timing mark positions this way. You set it all in time with the colored links once, and then note the relationship...
  14. KA24E injectors shorting out

    HB Truck
    Well, you are talking about electrical windings inside 20+ year old solenoids. They heat soak only so many cycles before insulation breaks down while wiring expands and contracts with each cycle, and eventually they fail. It certainly doesn't mean new injectors will fail any time soon...
  15. Engine stall problem

    Thanks for reporting back here with your findings! Glad we could help. -R
  16. Where to find a used engine for a 94' D21 pickup

    HB Truck
    What's difficult for one person may be easier for another. I've literally done hundreds of car and truck engines over the years. That's my trade, so it's not THAT hard for me, but if you've never done one, and are not equipped to do the job there's a learning curve. There are YouTube videos for...
  17. Where to find a used engine for a 94' D21 pickup

    HB Truck
    I've done several JDM engines for customers over the years, and luckily haven't had a bad one yet. That said, I've done lots more engines from the local salvage yard with pretty much the same success rate. I only recall one engine that I had any problems with, and ironically it was one I put...
  18. 94 HB TB cleaned-ECU Reset Low mpg- drive hard or easy

    HB Truck
    I got about 24mpg on mine before they started the whole methanol/gas thing. It went down at least 10% using the blends. All my vehicles did. Ugh! -R
  19. 94 HB TB cleaned-ECU Reset Low mpg- drive hard or easy

    HB Truck
    It shouldn't matter, but if you expect better mileage you have to drive it easy all the time. It's not a very efficient engine either way, though. Don't know about the 100 mile thing. I don't believe it has to complete a drive cycle like all newer models, but if there's a hard fault the light...
  20. Timing Chain replacement 2.4 KA24E

    HB Truck
    Thanks rogoman! There's a lot of good info in the other timing chain sticky, but I wanted to capture as much as possible with new pics since all of the others are gone. As timing chains go, our 2.4 isn't bad at all. There's so much room in the engine compartment to work versus nearly every...
