Thanks for the info Richard 👍 i do know little about timing … yes i do know that my V6 3.5L has the Interference style of timing belt setup… a little prognosis … my 2006 Acura MDX 3.5L had died while driving dont know why.
So pushed off to side of road and collected a friend to tow it home … ps
Ps i purchased this CUV with a bad misfire ,which i had cleared mostly up buy general maintenance ie spark coil and oil but inwanted tontry to regain some more performance and fuel economy so intryed to clean with intake spray .. while engine off . So I ended up cleaning well enough but did research and found out Acura\Honda 3
5’s bad PCV issue turns out i cleaned too well and caused my valve to stay open amd for oil to be sucked in to the cylinder and burn causing it to smoke .. but i digress
am a one man I be it idiot… but i had sparyed intake cleaner in the top EGR passageway on my engine as a solvent to try to fix a bad misfire. .. now i did dry towl all of the intake/carb cleaner up… and waited another two weeks and installed a fresh starter on to engine .. at which time it did start but would not idle , and i had to get my vehicle moved from the center of my drive way. The only way to achieve this was to stand on the throttle and trow it in to gear and move it ..
Now a weeks time and i go to start to show a friend what it is acting and all it does is backfire compression (enough to kick the intake snorkel\tube off throttle body)..
