My problem is I don't remember after a couple days so I tend to let them go.

You need a special adapter to check fuel pressure properly, cannot go by volume need to check actual pressure while cranking/running

This engine has VVT, correct? That opens up a whole new bunch of possibilities for the valve timing to be off, I'm thinking live-data may be good for catching/reporting problems there, but you would probably need to log all the data for careful analysis, not just a quick look-see at a few parameters.
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.

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.

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. ;)
