    To billr, again, from memory, vvti. Not that it makes a difference. But sometimes ppl here give greif cuz you use wrong terms, but for sure it is a variable valve timing engine. ;)

    Ok, my search confirms it is a timing belt. https://partsavatar.ca/2006-2008-toyota-highlander-hybrid-timing-belt-kit-with-water-pump-skf-tbk257awp?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI2Ln2hsbV9wIVlBXUAR2I3AiiEAQYASABEgLX0fD_BwE

    Forgot to mention, and this is from memory, the non hybrid v6 is chain, hybrid is belt. Easy to mess that up. I will do a quick search to confirm, so as not to send you into weeds. But my mind says hybrid is a belt. I'll be back.

    Dear billr , yes it is a vvt engine. So maybe one of the cams skip time, it is a timing belt maybe got off timing. IDK. Did tech do that right, but zero comp on one bank and spot on on the other one, gives me a dang good indication where to look. Anyway, we will see. cheers all, gotta go.

    2003 Tundra 4.7 Horn Relay Location

    Response #9 of this link kinda confirms what I am trying to say, but I dont have access to my data base right now. But this thread might help you. I would be highly surprised also if rock auto sold that kind of micro relay. Should be over a few bones. You will need some serious skills to...

    2003 Tundra 4.7 Horn Relay Location

    I am surprised I missed this one. Sorry for overlooking that BC. Highly doubt that they use same relay for horn AND flasher. That would be a safety issue. Maybe start looking at the clockspring. Cuz in all my years doing this, never have I seen a integration relay for horn and flasher on one...

    When things don’t go the way you expected, it’s time to figure out what went wrong, why it did what it did, and how to do it better next time. That starts with eliminating all the impossibilities, and narrowing down the remaining possibilities, in an effort to hunt down the truth. ;):bat:

    So in case you find me condescending, (I assur you I am not trying) read my moniker, at risk of repeating mysylf. something very easy is eluding, no way bank 1 shows close to zero comp without something evident. Hybrid or not, comp readings dont lie. That bank is shot.

    I second what grc wrote. Cuz if I read right, you want a educated guess. I will take time, I will see how this thread progresses. Something is eluding you. Focus on the steak. So I am going for a shot in the dark, and take your writing to prove. 1 3 and 5, dead, why. ? If it was a...

    2018 Acura TLX vibration in reverse. Engine mount?

    Oh, forgot to ask, is the a sh awd? Cuz if so, there may be other issue, plz confirm if this is a base tlx or the high end sh model. Btw, sweet ride. Happy you own one. I am a toy fan, but for sure was looking at those acura 300 hp engine, but price tag up here was 35 grands for this ride, and...

    2018 Acura TLX vibration in reverse. Engine mount?

    I once encountered this with a camry with a v6. Rear motor mount was shot. Caused same symptoms as you describe. I second what GRC wrote, sometimes, when I dont have an apprentice on hand. I will rock the car in gear or park, it is easy to see which one is bad. But the lower one at rear...

    No start issue

    dear billr, in a opti spark system, much like honda POS this error, cam and crank all go through pcm, if cam dat loss, no start. Unconventional, ppl didnt like it, and so went away trhe opti spatk system. Too much time for glitch etc.
