Re: how to check if the chain is stretched? Do I need special tools to set the timing?

As usual, I'm going to give you my very experienced amateur opinion and then later today or tomorrow the guy who really knows this stuff will give you better advice. The chain is tensioned by oil pressure, the tensioner could be bad. Be sure that you have 10W-30 oil, synthetic is better at keeping t...

Re: Air/Fuel intake system cleaning

Always a good idea to put a bottle of Techron in the tank every 20,000 miles and to clean your MAF sensor and throttle body every 50,000 or so.

Re: Plans on buying a pre-owner Kizashi

Welcome Swaroop Kumar ! I am in the USA so I can't give you any advice about service or parts availability. I absolutely think you should buy it, but you've come to a Kizashi fan site for advice, guess that's predictable. The only concern is the CVT transmission, it's a little bit undersized for the...
