could be the coil pack

 

 

Anything is possible, but i think the two bearings he found that were falling aparty are pretty darn close to being the issue :)

The passenger side cams were off about 10 degrees from where they should have been when the rest of the marks were aligned. Very happy it didn't slip anymore than that since I'd be looking at a lot more work if that happened. Definitely explains the rough idle.

Everything back together. Runs a whole lot better now. Looks like the thermostat might be leaking is the only oops on the whole thing. Missing three bolts from when the dealership looked at it and never put it back together. Redo the thermostat in the morning and drive it over to the dealer to get the bolts that they didn't give me.

 

Thanks again for all the help. Next up is brakes, but I've done those before so that's an easy one for me.

while you have it apart inspect the cam gears for chips or cracks. If any are found replace them.

 

These all looked good when I had it apart so I put the original ones back on.
