Newbie Timing chain
Hey everybody! Glad to see a forum on the Cobalt. Im also a member of vstar motor cycles and marine engine.com. I just acquired a 2008 Cobalt LS. My dad retired and bought a new Mustang so he has no need for the commuter car. I bought it from him dirt cheap for my wife to drive to work and the car is in perfect condition except for one thing. His mechanic said #3 was low on compression and said he would bet money it has a burnt valve. I have most of everything off the motor but the head. My question is is it possible to pull the head with the motor in the car? I know I have to relieve the tension on the timing belt and I have everything marked for timing. I really don't want to pull the engine. Thanks everyone and looking forward to talking to everyone. I also work on boats if anyone ever has a question.
