Hesitating startup & engine rattle results
Once again thanks to all those who replied to my annoying
problems, and here are the results:
1. Hesitating startup: replaced timing belt, applied proper tension.
apparently the one that was in there was loose and worn.
I had to bring it to the shop, those darn 4 allen head bolts were
partially stripped on the crankshaft pulley, took mechanics
approx 4.5 hours to take out and retap, entire job cost
2. Engine rattle: water pump. (did that one myself)
needless to say the car is running beautifully, I hope it stays that way.
