Re: VR6 question posted below (assumed1)
quote:[HR][/HR]VR6 - question
Is the VR6 a valve safe motor? And if it is a valve safe motor it seems that the cam or the crank gear is stripped. the car cranks and the crankshaft moves but the cam doesnt move. What is the easiest repair? Take off oil pan, take off tranny or take out motor?
I'm not sure what you mean by "valve safe". But, if your asking whether or not it's possible for the valves to make contact with the pistons if things are not right...the answer is YES. So, if you have a stripped cam gear or crank gear, then refrain from turning the engine over. Easiest way to fix is probably to pull the whole engine out. It CAN be done with the engine in the car, but working space is limited/cramped.
