Inspection



Camshaft & Bearings
2.2L Engine
  1. Measure the camshaft journals with a micrometer. If journals are more than 0.025 mm (0.0010 in) out-of-round, replace the camshaft.
  2.  
  3. Measure camshaft runout using a dial indicator.
  4.  
  5. Mount the camshaft in wooden V-blocks or between centers on a fixture.
  6.  
  7. Use a dial indicator to check the intermediate camshaft journal.
  8.  
  9. If runout exceeds 0.05 mm (0.002 in), camshaft is excessively bent and should be replaced.
  10.  

4.3L Engine
  1. Clean the engine camshaft in cleaning solvent.
  2.  
  3. Dry the engine camshaft with compressed air.
  4.  
  5. Inspect the camshaft retainer plate for damage. If the camshaft retainer plate is damaged, replace as necessary.
  6.  
  7. Inspect the camshaft bearings for correct fit into the engine block camshaft bearing bores. The camshaft bearings have an interference fit to the engine block camshaft bearing bores and must not be loose in the engine block camshaft bearing bores.
  8.  
  9. Inspect the camshaft bearings for excessive wear or scoring. If any camshaft bearing is excessively worn or scored, replace all the camshaft bearings.
  10.  
  11. Inspect the engine camshaft for the following:

    Worn, scored, or damaged bearing journals 
     
    Worn engine camshaft lobes 
     
    Damaged bolt hole threads 
     
    Damaged camshaft sprocket locator pin 
     

  12.  
  13. Measure the engine camshaft journals with a micrometer. If the camshaft journals are more than 0.025 mm (0.0010 in) out-of-round, then replace the engine camshaft.
  14.  
  15. Measure for a bent engine camshaft or excessive engine camshaft runout using a magnetic base dial indicator. Check the intermediate engine camshaft journals. If the runout exceeds 0.065 mm (0.0026 in), the engine camshaft is bent and must be replaced.
