Where to get EP3 timing done?
Hello folks, new EP3 owner here.

My '02 EP3 sounds like a diesel! (194k kilos)

I got the valve lash done at Carter Honda, but it has not fixed it. They also told me over there that I would have to get a new timing chain, tensioner, guides, etc, eventually, as mine looked stretched, and is probably the source of the sound. It has not jumped a tooth yet, but I have a feeling it might soon. They said it would be at least a $2000 job.

What do you guys feel about that? Should I get it done at Carter Honda, or do you have a recommendation on a different garage that might do it for cheaper? It is only noticeable under load, and seems louder when engine is warm. All signs point to timing it would seem.

Anyway, any advice?:okay:
