    I feel stupid asking this, I need to know the easiest way to get the timing chain guide screw. I took on the task of changing the head gasket on my 2004 Chevy Trailblazer V6 4.5L.

    I just purchased a 2004 Trailblazer LS 4x4 with 88K miles. No sooner than I got it home, I noticed a rattle in the engine compartment. It seems to be at it's worse when the A/C is on. After inspection, I was sure it was the tensioner pulley on the passenger side of the motor because that is...
