No, basically I was thinking that since thus master mechanic told me that I needed to replace all of the camshafts, all of the timing chains etc. that in fact that is what it needed and not just another couple of bad bearngs in a couple of the roller rockers. I have spent thousands on keeping my van running to this point and just do not wanna keep throwing money in it unnessarilyTaxiGirl, this thread is related to your other thread in which your title asks how long you can run with a broken rocker. And in the other thread, you talk about the familiar ticking sound. Am I missing something that is different between these two threads? The video you just posted at 1:31 is what was covered in the other thread. Or are you now asking if you can get some mileage by using a different lubricant?
